    OK, so after months of fannying about with every method under the sun, after endless hours of content writing and hundreds of pounds worth of software, after trying on every colour of hat under the sun - be it black white or yellow...

    I have finally got my wife's business to number one on three out of four mega hard keywords. One of them which has blown 7 google places out of the water, which some said would never happen.

    I thank you. And google..."go **** yourself - places is killing many small businesses." :)

    Heres the thing, Im now terrified I am going to lose the position. This is not a flyby niche domain and so I need my results to stick. I am worried about how much of my house is built on solid foundations.

    Most of my direct backlinks are of an ok nature (most. it has had an occasional blast from somewhere or other). But generally my footprints have been as small and targeted as possible. However I have been aggressive, working on it day and night. link here...link there. The bottom tiers have had thousands of links built. I have not stopped.

    So does that mean - I should continue at this pace so that it doesn't slow down over night? Im not sure I can afford to!

    Or by continuing at this pace do I draw attention to the quality of the links?

    Do I just find ways to diversify the link types? I'm hoping that eventually genuine interest in the company will take over - till then Im not sure what to do with myself. Im like the greyhound that caught the rabbit :(

    Thanks

    Uh Oh, getting ready for the "SEO Experts" to come forward with "PM ME PM ME". Sorry OP, I find that most folks biggest failings is usually that they are afraid of success. They often mask that fear by saying they are afraid of losing their rankings so they over react. My advice is to keep doing what you have been doing and you should keep getting what you're getting.

    It's true. Just keep doing it, whatever "it" has been and you should be just fine.

    Don't let up on your hard work but consider scaling it down a notch to see what happens. If you reduce your efforts by 20% you'll likely see that growth will be consistent unless your competitors ramp things up. I find that it's generally good to stay just ahead of the game. Once you're ahead by great amounts, things start to look funky and you might gain some unwanted attention.
