    Hey BHW!

    So reading through this forum for the last few months I have seen a lot of people talking about getting top 5, but we all know that the difference from top 2-5 to a #1 is huge. So after getting your site into the top 5, what does it take for a decently competitive keyword to get the #1 and stick?

    I have about 10 micro sites (15-30 pages) sitting in the top 5 but I can't seem to hold onto that number one. I am up against one competitor and he is a beast. His network of sites is in the 1000's and he has so much link authority to throw around every time I bump up to #2 or #1, he immediately takes me back a few spots in a week or two.

    So BHW - What do you do to get to #1 and maintain it?

    Thanks!

    Just keep building quality links man. You will get there!

    Make sure your content is strong and your onsite is good.
    :D

    What type of links are going to hold that #1 though? I have money to spend to get them, but I think I have exhuasted all of the typical avenues here thus far.

    I am in the real estate niche.

    What I have done myself to hit that number one but doesn't stick.

    Keyword Domain
    Use my network of sites to give it a bump from start 10 to 15 links.
    Article marketing by hand and then blast those articles with SB+AMR
    UAW to niche site and hand submitted articles in #3.
    Small link NET not a Wheel using web 2.0's+Article Marketing+SB
    Add site to profile links in forums I frequent in my niche.
    Add links to legit WEB 2.0's in my Niche, there are a lot of Real Estate 2.0 sites out there.
    Guest blog for real estate websites. (Totally white hat.) NO SB or AMR blast here as they are not my sites to mess with, and they would probably be pissed off with me.

    Directory submissions about 20 a month.

    Use my WP blogs, about 30 for a final push into the top 5.

    Recycle all these steps until I hit #1.

    I Don't Use
    Xrumer
    SENukeX
    BMD

    Should I?

    Download the SEO PowerSuite Enterprise Edition here on the forums. Use the SpyGlass tool to get his backlinks, then use the Auditor tool to get better onpage then he does. Then use rank tracker to watch him fall behind. :)

    I already have the Spyglasss enterprise edition. But his links are all from his own network. I have been doing SEO for more than 3 years, I know how to play the game. He just plays it better I guess.

    Anyways, the whole point to this post was to ask what others do to get those last few spots.

    Anyone willing to share their secret sauce? :D

    I currently have a site ranked #6 and the 5 above are all big national companies. As well as continuing to do what I've always done I'm going to go for a set and forget monthly service such as linkpushing from the BST section here.

    It seems you're doing the right things, you just need to do more of them.
