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?
