    I have been working on my local business website for about a month.
    I am not in a hurry and want to build links naturally. The top
    competition site has 19 backlinks, but apprently has link juice
    from their corporate website.

    Right now I am position #38-70 for top three desired keywords.
    Below is my overall website campaign plan. I know I am missing
    some link diversity, so please offer suggestions!
    :)

    Tier #1

    ******* original 500 word article, written by me, to each article directory and blogs below

    > Squidoo
    > tumblr
    > hubpages
    > wordpress.com
    > Go Articles
    > Ezine Articles
    > Blogger
    > Youtube video (video has "money site" url in description) **DONE**
    > 100 directory submissions (for Google Places page) **DONE**
    > 100 social bookmarks **DONE** (got through fiverr a few months ago)

    Tier #2

    ******* original 500 word article, written by fiverr, to each article directory and blog below

    > blinkweb.com
    > blog.com
    > Livejournal.com
    > articlesalley.com
    > isnare.com
    > helium.com
    > articleblast.com

    Tier #3

    Small Fiverr gigs (100 link) pointed at Tier #2? Not sure, open to suggestions, don't want to get google slapped.

    Blog (for "money site")

    > Write two 500 word articles per week based on related keywords

    Social

    > Facebook page (buy 1,000 likes) post blog articles to page when posted to website **DONE**
    > Twitter (buy 1,000 followers) post blog articles to page when posted to website **DONE**
    > Pinterest (post happy customer photos) **DONE**
    > Google + (add photos and youtube video)
    > Google business Places page **DONE**


    PLEASE let me know YOUR suggestions how I can improve my SEO campaign.

    Tier 2 and 3 doesn't have enough quantity, making your tier 1 weak. You'll want 1000 social bookmarks and blog comments in there.

    Forum profiles and wiki links to your tier 1 would also be beneficial.

    Being as it seems like you're outsourcing, you'd probably need a bunch of gigs for each of your tier 1 properties, which probably wouldn't be economical, but would be absolutely necessary.

    Good one :) Though, you can be way more aggressive on Tier 2.

    Tier 2 looks weak and I think you are spending too much on the content. A highly spun manually written article would do the trick. I would look at tier with more quantity with a little bit of quality. The point should be to strengthen the first tier which I believe is not happening with your set up.

    Good luck!

    I think if you are worried about getting slapped by google and want to take it slow then it seems like a good safe campaign to me. You can always bulk up your tier 2 backlinks if this campaign does not get you the desired results. Good luck!
