    Not sure if this is the write place to ask but please bear with my noobness. Any words of wisdom or direction is surely appreciated! Thank you. Okay, The key word is "thrift store nyc" or "best thrift store new york" etc. I have a sort of basic plan on hosting a blog on my site that'll give good content and include keywords. I also can go to forums that are ranking for "best thrift stores in New York" and other articles to comment with a link to my site. I want to also get more reviews for yelp and google places as well as foursqure. I am slowly figuring my way around SEO and i guess my question is if i'm on the right track using these keywords and methods. I don't have much money and have read it takes alot of money and patience to rank for competitive keywords. I think "brown leather boots" would qualify as very competitive or maybe "best thrift store" or "online thrift store" however I am still trying to learn so, I may be completely wrong, I see BHW as a big brother sister for guidance if you guys could let me know what I should do or who i can work with on here I'll go for it! Don't want to end up doing anything or order random gigs without knowing what the hell i'm doing. Thanks again!!!

    also not giving out your keyword on BHW can do more good for you

    Thanks for the reply! I thought it was a rather obvious keyword though no? :) Also willing to take the risk if it means getting some help. Not sure what else to do?
