Hey everyone, So I have been watching this keyword for a while trying to rank. Pretty much the same sites are always listed on page one...until another ezine article(now doublelisting) is ranking number one without any substantial amount of backlinks according to site explorer. I asked this question on another forum and they said it could be some 301 redirects. The page is a PR 6 with some crummy forum spam links showing up in site explorer. http://siteexplorer.search.yahoo.com/search?p=http%3A//ezinearticles.com/%3FReverse-Cell-Phone-Lookup-Services%26id%3D3200343&bwm=i&bwmo=d&bwmf=u And there is something else I needed to know from you black hat seo experts if you don't mind. It is for the same niche, but this guy is getting very similar backlinks to 2 different articles on different directories(ezine and goarticle) I see a lot of .ru home page backlinks. Obviously he is buying links. His articles are not banned at all so I guess buying links for articles doesn't really hurt. here are the two articles I am talking about. goarticle: http://siteexplorer.search.yahoo.com/search?p=http%3A//www.goarticles.com/cgi-bin/showa.cgi%3FC%3D2286921&bwm=i&bwmo=d&bwmf=u ezine: http://siteexplorer.search.yahoo.com/search?p=http%3A//ezinearticles.com/%3FCell-Phone-Number-Search---How-to-Reverse-Lookup-a-Cell-Phone-Number%26id%3D1600633&bwm=i&bwmo=d&bwmf=u The ezinearticle ranks well for a lot of terms and has over a million views. But 14 backlinks? WTF!!! Where are these .ru link networks? Your help is really appreciated.
