I'm trying to rank a site for local businesses, but I'm kind of new to building links/making backlinks. How do you go about making backlinks for a site featuring local businesses? For example, say your doing doctors, and you're using "(town) doctors" or "doctors in (town)" for keywords (exact), where would I look to make backlinks? Just search for doctor forums and blogs in general? How would you guys go about doing that? Also I'm trying to rank for a few different keyword phrases. Should I write articles and submit them to a few directories with the keyword phrases in them? Or just keep backlinking with the keyword phrases I want as the anchor text? Any and all help is most appreciated guys. Thanks.
