    I've look and done my research on my competition and I see all of them using a similar backlink profile.

    They seem to be mainly purchasing "guest blogging" opportunities and blasting these pages with several hundred do-f0ll0w blog comments on other sites.

    Is this the way of the future of SEO?

    I'm just curious so that I can hopefully stay ahead of the curve.

    Thanks

    if you can guarantee thats all they are doing then why dont you test it out yourself and see if you can duplicate the results. guest posts are a good way to build a backlink profile but you will need more diversity imo. I used to want to just read all day on BHW until I realized testing things myself answered the majority of my questions. goodluck my friend

    Niche relevant guest posts from high quality blogs will always get you good results. This will remain the same in future too. Plan your strategies right and then go on to build some good backlinks through guest blogging opportunities.

    I would try to duplicate the results but I find spending $500+ for a single backlink a little excessive right now with my current financial plan.

    I appreciate the advice you guys have shared above... I'm trying to help a friend out with this niche of his.

    hey, buddy first thinks of these pages as landing pages, and therefore a helpful jumping off point for anyone who might search for the highly competitive keyword. and usually, blog posts are not good for this step. Check with your Google Analytics to see how users are interacting with these pages too...

    Guest posting is important, but if you're looking for the cheaper alternatives, grab scrapebox or just manually create posts places yourself with a big Do Follow list of high auth sites.

    If you don't have the cash to get similar links, you can either go with building your own PBNs, or web2.0s and blast this properties with d0-follow comments. Perhaps you can get similar results.

    I for one is looking to get into building a clickbank site in a very difficult niche - but profitable. And the competition is putting me off for now. So am also interested in this topic.

    Niche guest posts will get you good results. Since you targeting high competition KW, then you have to plan best strategy to build good quality backlinks.

    Try authority links and PBN blog posts as well. Good luck!
