    Hey guys

    Ok so I am helping a friend of mine get better rankings for his site. His site is currently on page 3 for his local business.

    The first 3 spots are taken by organitc listings followed by a 5 box Google maps listing.

    We are going to change up his site completely and also adding a blog so he can update it once a week and hopefully this will keep the site fresh and up to date and make google favour him!

    What should I do in terms of backlinks? whats safe and effective to do post panda and penguin?

    thanks in advance

    ******* to local listing sites with proper citation
    *Press releases
    *Use Coupon promotion sites
    *Get some previous customers to write good, legit reviews
    *Make sure all profiles are complete and professional
    *Set up social profiles for the company, link them all to the places page
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    Manually write articles 200 words to 800 words and post on web 2.0, link to the moneysite with the website name and sometimes 10% with the keyword you are trying to rank for.

    thanks.

    by reviews do you mean for the citation sites?
    and by social profiles, do you mean facebook and twitter? or other web 2.0s?

    Just checking
