    First of all, I am sorry for my English.

    I have created a site for cpa ( similar to game hacks ).
    I am following seo guide from lightningblitz for seo

    /blackhat-seo/black-hat-seo/781273-how-rank-quick-guide-newbies(dot)html

    I have created 10 unique (some what ) articles for web 2.0 sites. Today I checked my competitors site using majestic seo , moz ose ..

    Most of them have 2000+ backlinks for their main site. Most of those links are (anchor text keywords ) and the sites are not related to the niche. But they have ranked for the keyword.

    I don't have tools like GSA ser or anything.. so I should buy links

    My question is
    Should I buy link to the web 2.0 sites?
    Or should I follow my competitors and buy links (BHW or fiverr ) directly to the main site?

    Thanks for all the reply guys.

    Again sorry for my bad english

    Well, this is not exactly white hat SEO, but since you used my guide I will be glad to help.

    That strategy works best for easy KWs and does require tweaking. Even since I posted it my own strategy has shifted due to things taking longer to index. But it is what it is.

    The best way to rank? Do what your competition does, but better.

    Just because they have 2,000 'crap' links does not mean you need them. Look at the strong links they have such as high TF or high PA and those are the links you want to replicate.

    Start with the guide. 10 Web 2.0s pumped up, add a press release to your money site targeting branded anchors, power up the 2.0s will a good amount of 301s, contextual tier two and spam tier three to ensure everything is indexed.

    Add some niche relevant blog comments, be active on social media, and wait for everything to pan out.

    You should expect it to take a couple week from when your links are indexed to see the impact they make. So just keep working.

    User t0mmy has a good thread (I think) on using your competitions back link profile to rank. t0mmy is one of the few people I learned a LOT from so I would suggest you read all of his posts. You will pick up a few pointers.

    Also, test. In SEO, any piece of advice can change in one day. The game is mostly about testing.

    Do what your competition does, but better. - that's a really great sentence.

    I will disagree about getting all those huffpost links as they offer really little value for money but I totally agree... think out of the box and get better links than your competitors.
    Some of my competitors get links from national papers but I'm not even going to try to get those links as there are better ways and much cheaper ones.

    Yeah, Huff Post links or those $$$$ links can be replaced in terms of SEO benefits a LOT cheaper and I would suggest that. A cheap press release and some quality PBN tricks are a better replacement in my book. Unless you want the Huff Post link for branding, but that is a different story.
