    My main competition for a KW I'm fighting for is a site that was made about 3 weeks ago. Mine was made about 12 days ago. Mine is EMD with a character at the end. His is a related KW but focused for another variation, with a character at the end. Domain ages are both within august.

    Yahoo site explorer shows him with 200+ backlinks.

    My point/question is this. All of his links (at least on yahoo site explorer) are on blogs that have no monetization on them. They are obviously a blog network, made purely for backlinking money sites, etc.

    Can I compete with this guy? I do not have a blog network, and I'm not sure how to get my links on one anyway. Anyone with any tips, advice or recommendations? Anyone with a service offering this, if it's needed to beat him?

    In other words are obvious blog network backlinks beatable? I'm sure some of you have beat blog network sites...maybe you can shoot over a tip. Or maybe a "hang in there, it'll happen" if my higher quality links can beat him. Or just tell me that I'm overreacting and I should just give my links time to index and mature. :p

    Thanks.

    And it's obvious the blog network owner bought up old domains with PR, no matter what the domain is, and threw up whatever subject he wanted...it couldve been "ourtriptocalifornia2005.com" and hes got fat loss shit on it.

    I know a guy doing this in one of my niches and hes always consistently in the top 3. I can see this sort of strategy getting busted one day though as it leaves a lot of very obvious footprints.

    As for beating him, keep link building :p

    ...even if you behind him right now, make sure that the Serp snippet is a call to action, many many times i see people get top position but have shitty snippets and the CTR is much lower as it should. Part of the Panda Algorythm might be CTR, so get a great serp snippet and you might get more visitors than you think,even though you behind him...

    He will be beatable, make up a couple of link wheels/pyramids and do the usual article submission etc, just keep at it and you'll beat him.
