    Create Pages like bus from xyz to xyz or Flights from xyz to xyz. Some of the other keywords you can look into is places around or distance from. The trick is to get people on your website and than convert. For branding you will need lot of PR/Ads/Bloggers engagement. Run some discounts from time to time.

    Thank You! But, is it possible to do organic SEO for these sites with Directory, Social bookmarking, Forum Posting, Article or Blog Sharing, etc. Else, we can only go for Ads (Google Ads or other social ads). Awaiting response!!!

    Hi gersson
    What you seem to be looking for sounds like link building and a little old-school as well, as most directories won't actually give you valuable traffic or any uplift in terms of rankings. The sites you want to compete with are sites which have a healthy mix of everything: onpage (technical) SEO of their site, and backlinks as well as social engagement by users. This is what you should aim for. However, I'd strongly suggest you start with the technical basic SEO first. Your site cannot rank well if it is impossible for search engine bots to crawl it, for instance, or to try and find out what keywords you might be targeting.

    you would require lakhs of budget to compete with them....
    also keep in mind people prefer to buy from a well known brand unless you are offering huge discounts, I know this as I manage my uncles travel biz online .

    I recommend to manage very active social profiles to increase visibility and engage visitors rather than ads.

    I think you should start with niche forums, QnA and Blogging only and after getting some leads you can go for complete SEO link building.

    OP simply find keywords related to your site and start building links for them. There is nothing special in doing seo for online bus ticket booking sites.
