    Hi guys,

    I am on a mission to rank major terms like 'desks' and 'office desk' for an ecommerce site.

    So far I got all DFB set up to blast random spun articles. I got Backlinksgenie to do some profile linking to main. Now starting linkpushing to the main site. All of the services are crawled and indexed by linkilicious. I'm also doing article distribution with 2 providers. What more should I do or spend on?

    I thought about using software on my own but I just don't have the time to run them because I am going for low hanging fruits as well, setting up targeted landing pages for a long tail and hit them with links.

    If you are running a ecommerce site, then why would you spend your energy to rank for such a common word?

    It's like ranking for the word "car" but people that search for "car" is not in the buying phase.

    i agree that such broad terms are not always the most profitable considering the work you put into them. however if you want a lot of links why not set up an affiliate program? most other sites ranking for those kind of terms get a ton of links from affiliates.

    Affiliate program is my goal, hopefully go live this year. I also understand the common terms are not buying phrases but it is still a goal of mine.

    Right now the site has ~50k SKUs, how do I really build backlinks to each product page? Will need to develop some sort of system right?

    Your heading out into deep water man. If you need basic advice like you're asking, you might want to stick closer to shore for a while.

    You need to keep focus.

    Start with your high selling products first or the products that gives you the highest profit.

    I agree. You will go broke building links to that many pages or die from exhaustion. Also imagine highly suspicious to big G

    You need to target several longtail keywords at first and build on them. Then, once you rank for those, move on to more competitive terms. Then take it up another notch, and another and so on, until you get to the top of the chain and can focus on ranking for such broad terms. You'll also have the bonus of earning some money while doing this, as opposed to just spending money to rank for something that major.
