    Thanks for anybody that can help a total newbie!!! :baby09:

    Competition is
    3600 exact local searches
    4Million results, although everything is a cr*p below 5th page

    competition #1:
    yahoo SE links: 84
    Market Samurai: Backlinks 5274; Referring domains 63

    competition #2:
    yahoo SE links: 605
    Market Samurai: Backlinks 4640; Referring domains 220


    competition #3:
    yahoo SE links: 107
    Market Samurai: Backlinks 3644; Referring domains 209

    Why there is so huge difference between Yahoo SE and market samurai backlinks?


    Its in local google with local language
    I'm on the third page with a new optimized site, with like 20 backlinks through 301 redirect
    domain is 1 year old
    I thought to start manual link building and backlink indexing

    -------------------------------

    I have a couple of questions

    If I only build a few hundred backlinks manually, can I index those backlinks immediately by

    pinging them or is it still a danger for sandbox?

    I thought to use a list of high PR backlinks only or should I diversify the backlink PR also?

    I have 1 primary and about 10 secondary keywords, I thought to diversify my backlink anchor


    texts by
    50% primary keyword
    40% secondary keywords
    5% domain name
    5% of random texts

    is it diverse enough?

    I cannot really create articles as artile directories only approve articles in english, but I

    do this SEo in small local language, does anyone know some directories that would approve

    foreign languages?

    Manual backlinks will never get your site sandboxed! Unless you hire like 100 people and build sites faster than automation can. However, more than manual or automated, I would always recommend using diverse methods to get backlinks. All web 2.0 backlinks can seem spammy, all AD submissions can seem spammy etc.

    I guess moving a keyword up in local SE's should not be a hassle at all. However, do you feel the need to rank on google.com? As your business seems pretty local focused.

    You can submit to several thousand article directories which are auto approved. Msot of them are crappy, but some juice is better than none at all. Goarticles.com approves instantly and has PR4.

    Thanks, seoguru13

    But I'd still would like to get an experienced opinion to my main concern,
    is this competition beatable with manual link building?

    Not sure if you have scrapebox but I would use SB to take a look at the links of your competitors. SB has other uses other than generating spammy posts. By looking at their links you will have an idea how your competitors are building their links and that could decide a direction for your campaign especially if you have to use more proactive SEO techniques. You don't get bonus points for manual links by the way from Googliath.
