    Hey Guys,

    I have a micro-niche site with very low competition (<175,000 Results on *G*) that I have been on page 1, third result forever now. I have only used scrapebox to get to this position and I've slowly over the past two months been doing 500-1000 posts a week, resulting in about 1500 current backlinks which are indexed by *G*. My competition has 300-500. My domain is 3 months old and my competitors were registered in Feb 2006 & Sept 2000, however both of these sites are not "targeting" my keyword.

    What is your advice? At this point I've been thinking about purchasing some high PR backlinks to try and raise the authority of my page as it seems as if scrapebox alone will not get me there -- or an I just being impatient?

    Thanks.

    You need diversification in your backlinking strategy. When Google classifies your site, it will not be looked upon positively with only links from 1 source. It seems you may be adding too many. I would add profile links, directory links, bookmarks, and articles to major article directories. But add slowly, certainly 100 or less per day or you risk the sandbox.

    While I disagree about the sandbox I am in 100% agreement that you need some link diversity. If it was me I would add a few articles, a few web2.0 blogs, some bookmarking, and a bunch of profile links.

    Since those sites are established it may also take some time. Keep building the links, maybe add some content and with a little more time and you should be able to come out on top.

    Yes I've added much more than 100 per day and none of my sites have been sandboxed. Not saying it can't happen, but I think your numbers have to much much higher. Nonetheless thanks for taking the time to share your advice.

    So in a nutshell I have article submissions, web2.0 blogs, bookmarking and profile links to diversify my backlinks.

    If anyone has any other ideas please feel free to share :) I will begin working on this and report back!
