    I need to bolster the rankings for one of my main income pages, which is gradually slipping off page 1 because the company keeps making pointless extra pages on its own domain that get ranked by Google on top of my page. I'm the top affiliate but still only at position 11, the company itself dominates the whole top 10 for my keyword!

    When I was at 7,8,9,10, sales were great, but slipping onto page 2 has really damaged things.

    The idea is to get some paid blog posts on authority sites. Then, spam these with powerful comment spam backlinks so they gain lots of juice for transfer to my main page.

    In theory, this strategy should be highly effective in transferring relevance and trust.

    My page already has quite a serious network of web 2.0 properties built around it which is well randomized and juiced up, but clearly it's not enough anymore.

    Has anyone else here tried juicing up paid blog posts and using them as a kind of link-wheel architecture?

    If you've tried it, how did it go? All thoughts welcome.

    I've spent the past 60 days or so just catching up on the latest tech and thinking in SEO, after a break of several years. But let me provide an opinion (the issue of "spam" aside.)

    I don't think that paid or unpaid is usually a major issue. If you earn more in an hour doing things other than writing than it costs to buy an hour of somebody else's writing time you should do it; it saves you money. If you're not earning more than you should do the writing yourself; farming it out will cost you money.

    Another suggestion is to rethink your overall strategy and try to find some new ways of competing that thusfar neither you nor your competition has adopted, a sort of sneak up on the bastards with the idea that you can ambush them with more troops than they can muster in their defense.
