    I am justaroofer and am wondering how do you do backlinks to your website? Do you use wordpress, squidoo, etc? What is the best back link site to use for local SEO? How much does content matter, dont you need good content to get views? I am justaroofer. So what is 2.0, links from H1, and links with anchors. I am justaroofer. LOCAL SEO :cool:

    You should probably read a bit more before asking. Use the search on the left.

    Tip: One of my roofer clients gets the bulk of his business from our reviews on homestars.com

    Apparently everything I said to you in your other two threads has been completely ignored. Makes me kind of regret having put the effort out. Maybe someone else will benefit from it. Either that or you are being influenced by people that don't know a damn thing about Local SEO. You don't need backlinks, you need citations. And there's not much point in asking about anything else until you've actually put effort into DOING those citations. And another thing you should stop doing is opening up multiple threads, essentially asking for the same help. Eventually all the qualified people are going to learn to ignore you, and they will toss your carcass to the brainless piranhas that don't know anything.

    You ask clients that you do work for to leave reviews for you on homestars.com. As you get more reviews, you will climb the homestars.com rankings in your city and roofing. Thus more business.

    It seems that you may be ignoring advice others have given you. At this point I would say invest in your business and hire a professional, the additional leads you would gain are more then sufficient to justify the expense.

    Haha, that's like asking how do you install a roof! Read through the forums. Then read through SEO Moz's backlinking guide. Also check out www.Source-wave.com, awesome SEO video blog.

    I would honestly google " how to make a backlink" along with what is a backlink and would bet you would find your answer.

    Don't worry about backlinks until you have enough citations and reviews.
    1. Open a google places account.
    2. Go to Google and type in roofer or roofing, whatever your keywords are plus your city or town.
    3. Examine the Google places results and open each one.
    4. Get the phone number from each business and do an exact google search "01666777888" or whatever the phone number is.
    5. Create a list of each domain it appears in. (ciiation sites)
    6. Do the same for each of the other 9 results.
    7. Go through the complete list and add your site to each one.

    When thats done, then consider backlinking.
