    What would you do differently if you were trying to rank a very high-authority site, like Facebook or LinkedIn, compared to if you were ranking a site you owned?

    I am currently trying to rank #1 and #2 in Google for somebody's name using Facebook and LinkedIn. I have already taken care of on-page SEO and social metrics (Facebook page has over 10,000 likes and LinkedIn profile has 500+ connections), I am mainly trying to decide how to start backlinking and what to do differently for this type of campaign.

    Would you use huge amounts of spam links since there's no chance that Facebook or LinkedIn will get penalized by Google? Or is there any risk of Facebook or LinkedIn disabling the accounts if I do this? I would feel awful if I got this person's accounts banned.

    Would you vary the anchor text? Or make all the links with the person's name?

    What programs/services would you use?

    All advice is much appreciated.

    You can build lot of links to both these sites(inner pages), since they are authority sites, google won't penalize them.

    GSA + blog posts would do the job i guess.

    Thanks for your reply. So you wouldn't vary your anchor text at all?

    I've had a lot of luck with GSA on authority sites, but haven't been able to manage it for Linked In. Bumping this so others dump their experience here.

    Actually, your question applies to any kind of webpage on the Internet.

    Ranking high-authority LinkedIn or Facebook page is not much different from ranking any other web page.

    You have to make sure that your backlink footprint is natural.

    At the very least, you don't want all links to appear in a very short period of time.

    Also, you have to have some level of diversity and variety in your link sources.

    As long as you pay attention to these quality considerations, you can rank LinkedIn or Facebook page quite well.

    I would suggest that you use a wide variety of link sources.

    Make sure that it looks natural.

    This is especially appropriate if the person that you are trying to rank works in a specific industry try to find backlinks and industry mentions those specific industry niches.
