    Hey guys, I was wondering how do I improve my site placement on google. Currently I'm ranked on the 2nd page for my targeted keyword. I tried to improve that by looking at my competitors backlinks, all the sites on the 1st page have terrible backlinks. Those sites are filled with terrible directories and social booking mark sites, yet they are on the first page. I'm thinking they bought those backlinks.

    I've been doing blog comments, manually submitting to high page rank directories, and a few articles.
    Do you guys have any suggestions on what else I should do to improve my search rank? Thanks!

    If you have budget, it is better to buy High pr links from high traffic sites from where you can get some traffic too, its really helpful for your sites.

    But if you do not have budget work for the following

    1. Facebook, google + and other social networking sites
    2. Create the attractive video and submit in many video submissions sites
    3. Create the attractive articles and post in the ezines etc and get rank those articles too, it may also work for you.
    4. Posts in the sites like craiglist
    5. Posts in Documents sharing sites

    Means you will have to do very great work to beat your competitors


    Tks

    there may be different reasons for their good ranking, like they might be older than your site. I would suggest you to build variety of links ...like info graphic links / sound submissions links/ High PR edu links....and then you should get authority to pass those guys .

    With good contextual backlinks related to your niche it should be easy and fast to get to page 1 based on your assessment of your competition.
