Hi everyone There's a really tough niche I want to rank my site for, but I want to at least figure out the best direction to go in. Let me tell you about my site. - not an emd - 2 years old - nice design and easy checkout Now what if I wanted to rank with keywords like "iPhone cases" on page one. I think I will need at least 50 articles, at least 500 words, SEO optimized, and a great deal of back links. Also I am thinking of posting a video once or twice a week with the keywords optimized on YouTube, daily motion, and Vimeo. On top of that, I will be manually scraping leads. I also am thinking of using you like hits to gain likes on a Facebook fanpage. So anyone have any ideas or suggestions? Any software or white techniques, gigs you suggest??? I'm guessing if I work hard at this, it should take about 3 months tops. But I want to hire someone as well, I'm wondering how many backlinks should they build in 1 hour, and what type of work should they be doing per hour and day if I hire them as a seo person? Thanks for all the help.
