    Hey BHW,

    I was doing some googling and searching on this site but couldn't find any real advice on ranking up my Instagram page on the SERP when searching for my brand name.

    Currently it ranks 8th, and I would like to have it 3-4 right after our website, facebook and twitter. Instagram at 3,755 followers and post multiple times a day.

    The only strategy I can see at this point is to build links. If I went with lower quality links in high volume, I may consider a tiered system. I'm not sure if this is a great idea since I don't want to tank the rankings of this, but I'm thinking the high DA and Google's Penguin update (lol) would keep it from tanking and would only strengthen it, almost like building up parasite sites.

    I can also buy higher quality links, but would just like some insight as to whether anyone has tried building links and if it is even worth my time/money or if there is another strategy I'm completely missing here.

    Thanks all, hope to get some feedback!
