Hi guys, So I've set up some sites with a business partner and he knows hardly anything about SEO/computers/the web. I'm a web designer and know an OK amount, but I'd class myself as a SEO newbie. Anyway, these sites have been optimised onsite - title tags, meta, h1, h2, etc. and without backlinks we rank at the top of the second page for .co.uk for our keyword. Competition is hardly anything - our competition have NO backlinks (or if they do, they're from themselves). Now, this has made it a tiny bit harder for me. I have ScrapeBox and I've been using it a bit and it's great, but as I say competition has hardly any backlinks so I can't take theirs. Now, my business partner is wanting to just keep getting crappy links from directories... most of these directories want a reciprocal link - is it worth bothering? There aren't many sites or blogs relating to our keywords, but there are broader topics that are similar. So my question is, should be target relevant sites that want reciprocal backlinking, or irrelevant sites that don't? I really don't want to be linking to these other sites, as they're probably full of crap and I don't want them to hurt us. Would appreciate some help.
