    So i looked up my competitors backlinks through seo spyglass, and it seems there are about 60 of 200 links I can copy. Meaning I can post on the same blog or make the same forum profile. Will this have a great effect on my helping me outrank hima? Or should I spend my time doing something else?

    Right now he is #3 and I am #5/6. There is one other competitor between us as well as the google map search. At #1 and #2 are two yelp links.

    He does have some paid links which I don't want to pay for, so what do you guys suggest?

    I'm thinking of spending a day or so and just mimicking his links.

    It's a part of a basic linkstrategy to check your competitors and copy the good links and those links that are easy to get.

    But don't expect that it's enough to beat him.
