    I started a new legit business venture that has a small website (under 10 pages). I would like to rank #1 for a local 3 word keyword. Usually i would use a spammy bl strategy and get there in a month or 2, but this time i want it to be legit because this site is for my company and i am in it for the long haul.

    Here is the info of the site i would like to beat:

    Alexa:~8,256,694
    Backlinks: Google 1, Yahoo:407
    Pagerank:4
    Domain age: 12 years+

    Pages Indexed
    Google:26


    My domain is only 3 months old, pr 0, and i have ~150 good backlinks, right now i am on page 2 of google.

    I know this site is not much to beat, but i am hesitant to use any spammy techniques.

    Any ideas would be appreciated. Please be nice.........

    well, by spammy i mean automated. I dont want to send up any red flags. if this was one of my squeeze pages i would have thousands of links by now.


    Maybe i should rephrase the question, i am looking for more variation ideas. Right now i have been doing manual ******** blog comments, manual unique article submissions, some directory submissions, web 2.0 blogs, a few link roots.

    I guess i am just looking for some more ideas.

    I think you are in right way.
    Beside these, you can post links to forums with high page rank.
    You can also try for forum profile links.
    These type of links are very good for staying long times.

    Yeah keep the gradual link building going. One thing you didn't mention, was on page seo. I'm assuming you've done it, but get the title tag right, description tag right, <h1> tag in there, and the right keyword density.

    Mate...I don't know what do ya mean by spammy. All I can tell ya that my mate did the same thing about a year ago...same kind of business venture type of site. He simply used a SEO company with a name in the business and he was up and running in no time. I my opinion anything done manually not via bots and automatic posting ( I invested on those when I was like...young and no so smart) is white hat. Real people tend to create links with a personal touch stating opinions . Opinions tend to stick where they are posted, explanation why the yahoo answers with plain not clickable links stay and don't get spammed. From staying alive links get you in the search engine.

    Value marketing, mate is the one done by people. I am trying it for a few years now and I had nothing but benefits from it

    dumbodrop,

    thanks for the forum ideas, totality slipped my mind

    englandrm,

    In my opinion, My on page seo is really good. I used my h1 tags correctly along with tiltle tags and alt tags for pics, i have some bold keywords in content, ect


    Im gonna keep up the manual link building i think i just needed some reassurance from you guys that i am on the right track because the results are coming slow for me.

    How many backlinks over time do you guys think i am gonna need to beat a site that is 12+ years old with my 3 month old domain.

    Yep make sure that you have the on page seo done. Then do a press release about the new site that is up and then put out a few articles over the next week and you should be good to go in a local market.

    Also make sure you set up a yelp, citysearch and look for any other local sites that you can link up to these will help big time

    whitehat techniques are basically blackhat techniques with out the tools and mass production. :)

    Its a quality versus quantity game IMO

    I think just doing what your already doing consistently will work long term. I would try and find some more related keywords and try to rank for those as well. Maybe add a blog to your site and post content that is focused on related keywords as well.

    In case you have not done massive linking yet, I would suggest you try to find an expired/expiring domain with age instead of your fresh one. You can run them in parallel for a while and then redirect the fresh one permanently to the aged one. If you're lucky you can find sth for $20 - $200 and you'd be much closer to beating his main competitive advantage - the age.
    Combined with a larger and constantly updated site you should be able to dethrone the present leader quite quickly.
    Last but not least - with an aged domain you can build links much quicker without the risk of being flagged.
