    I was wondering if I can get some advice on how to outrank sites such as the yellow pages, yelp, etc. for local seo purposes. So far my strategy has been latching on to parasite sites ( I won't named them for obvious reasons) I have been getting nearly instant front page rankings with no backlinks or anything using this method for local seo! However, I am having a tough time finding parasites that can outrank those sites (yellow pages, yelp, and other general sites such as this), websites like these are kind of a pain in the neck to figure out how to outrank. Should I be building backlinks to my parasites? Does building backlinks to parasites even work anymore? Thank you :).

    Google has been doing everything in their power to beat Yelp and they themselves can't beat them.

    I'd say look for long tails where you can beat Yelp, work on those before you compete with the big dogs.

    Absolutely build backlinks to your parasites. If a Yelp page is ranking first page with no backlinks for your local SEO keyword, build your own Yelp page for the business you are working with and build backlinks to it.

    Outrank their Yelp page with your own Yelp page. Same thing with Facebook pages and others.

    yep i mentioned that in other thread. theres limit of how many pages from single domain will be visible on single page. while there are some exceptions to this, usually its 1 per/domain unless its something parasity like jeuxvideo or yelp - then even up to 5

    solution=rank 5 yelp reviews that were made by you

    Hi everyone, I've a question. Please I'm new to SEO, pardon me if the question is awkward.
    If I have a website with about 10k backlinks and luckily I find another domain in the same niche with about 30k backlinks. Now, what would be the effect if I register the other domain with the 30k backlinks and redirect it to the previous 10k backlinks?
    Will I have a total of 40k backlinks?
    Is there possibility of any negative effect on my ranking?
    According to majestic the 30k backlinks domain has a TF of 18 and CF of 12

    I have accounts with some of these pages but don't they usually charge money for a listing with your business? Thank you for your response by the way =).

    Pretty much all the ones that have been mentioned on the blackhatworld forum. Doing alot of testing and seems as though the only way to possibly beat these sites and to possibly use churn and burn tactic but I going to use quality backlinks to link directly to site first and see whether or not I get desired results from that before I throw the kitchen sink at the parasites ;)

    So I think I might have found something but we will see. This is some data that I got from SEOQUAKE (really great tool by the way). The top three are general sites (like the yellow pages, and another general site that is taking up 2 spots) can you see what I see? Those 3 pages have thousands of links built to them and all the pages below are all practically my parasites pages I am currently taking up about 6 spots periodically Google is still bouncing around, but you can see they barely have any links built to them ( look at the Google links column to the right).

    Here are what the colors represent

    Yellow Rectangle (left) general sites (yellow pages, etc.) I am trying to outrank.
    Blue Rectangle (left) basically they all are my parasite pages.
    Red Rectangle (right) how many backlinks each page has.

    Anyway anyone know the fastes way to build backlinks and have them indexed quickly? Thanks.
    :)

    Just a quick update I managed to temporily outrank the yellow pages using one of my parasites. Next what I have done is order some high quality backlinks from fiverr.com and I am going to see if this is enough to take out those 1st positions (this another general site like the yellow pages).

    I did not think that url shortners still worked for linkbuilding like this anymore. If it does work for you please by all means share it with everyone here. :)

    I deal with the Yellow Pages, Yelp, and some other niche specific "general" sites all day long. I generally have a strong domain, and even then in our biggest market, I still get beat by Yelp with only 1 or 2 hyper targeted high quality back links. It's super annoying, but generally I just double whatever they have to their one page and I'm fine. Of course, my domains have 100-250 good back links to them

    Haha. I like the idea of outranking a yelp page with a Yelp page, but our Yelp presence isn't always the best.

    Wow your own domain is outranking the Yellow Pages and Yelp! That is pretty cool, did you buy an old domain by any chance or is this purely a new domain you started yourself?

    I didn't start them, but I have taken them over. They were started from the ground up. It's hard to say what your are up against without knowing your niche/specific situation, but in my experience, a solid 60 backlinks or so (sometimes less), and frequently updating our page, easily beats Yelp/Yellowpages in small-medium markets. However they become a lot more powerful in big markets because they will often point two hyper targeted back links to their search page for the keyword we are trying to rank for. Then, we need about 150-200 good backlinks.
