    I need some help pushing down a yelp review that comes up when searching for my business name. It's in the second position, after my main site and I want it off of the first page completely. Apologies for the length, I've divided into short\long parts.

    Short Summary:

    I've used a lot of different tactics as I'm new to orm and doing this for my own site so I haven't figured out what works yet. For what I have been doing, there were changes at the beginning but I haven't seen any changes in the top four positions since 6/24. I've been working on this since about April. I got serious at the end of May and then began documenting the rankings. I've managed to push my thumbtack profile rankings from 4 to 2 and my weebly site from non-existent to position 4.

    Any advice, critiques, pointing out things I overlooked\should stop doing, ect would be appreciated. I've read a bunch of posts on here but it's very easy to overlook things when you're overloaded with information. Plus I'm not that organized. I should probably have some kind of plan but the amount of time I spent researching and reading posts became ridiculous and so I just had to take action.

    What I've done (from April until yesterday)

    Trying to make this as brief but I will be more specific if it's requested. I did most things manually and slowly.


    • I've created about 150 branded web 2.0 properties, blogs, social profiles, ect - youtube, slideshare, facebook, twitter, weebly, aboutme, different tld sites - mobi and org, plus industry-related sites and some directories. All have content ranging from a lot to a little. I used knowem to find a lot of sites.
    • I've even created an ebook and submitted it to Google Books and Amazon.
    • About 100 of the properties are indexed. I pinged links that were\are not indexed after a few weeks. I'm also trying out linklicious for some of the links.
    • A lot of the branded properties connect to my main website. I've made some posts, uploading documents, backlinked to some of my other sites. Several blogs have posts with varying content and word count. The new ones don't have as much stuff yet.
    • I've made backlinks, concentrating on my weebly and thumbtack sites since they are the highest, but I've done others. I've backlinked from other branded properties, youtube, slideshare, online resumes, ect as well as my main site.
    • I've ordered a couple of backlink services from fiverr to go towards my Amazon product page. I figured it could handle a couple thousand links and like I said before, I'm just trying things.
    • I'm trying social monkee. I've submitted 6 links - one to my amazon product, one to facebook, and the rests to random, lower profile sites that I'm not attached to.
    • I did a press release with pr just a few days ago, though no links as I was just testing to see how it would rank and what sites would pick it up.

    Again, any tips\help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    How did the ebook work out?

    Are you linking between the sites you're creating at all?

    I, too, am curious about how your ebook worked out. I never knew writing an ebook can be used to improve your reputation. Usually, you write ebooks and sell them.

    The amazon ebook (something for my niche. nothing special) ranks in the mid 20s\30s and has stayed very steady at that position since the beginning. As for why I did an ebook, I was just brainstorming about the different things I could do that would be included in the search results. I will probably try again but with more effort and marketing.

    Also, I am happy to report that I'm seeing movement. My weebly and thumbtack sites have both beaten yelp once in the last few days. Even if it's temporary, I'm happy because I have proof that my daily efforts are not a complete waste of time.

    You might want to start paying for quality articles to be written about your business and then guest post them on 3rd party sites with high DA. I am happy to discuss details offline if you PM me.
