    Hi all,

    I have a local business in a European language.
    I've previously used some blackhat methods, but they rarely seem to work.

    So, I imagened that if I were to place 1 link each night before going to sleep, I would get good long-term ranking.
    But where should I put my links? I mean some links are powerful, some are weak.

    What would your recommendations be? Use a tool to find good website to post links?
    Shall it only be from my national domains ".se" etc?

    I would not put out link one without making sure that your on site was in order... that is really the place to start. Also, I would never do any BH methods with Local, that is really not required 99.3542% of the time.

    Take a look at your on site and make sure it is uber tight.

    Read through this forum to get a hint of places of where to fetch backlinks from. Think about posting Youtube videos, Web2.0's, Article directories etc. With a little work these can become high quality backlinks.

    I don't think there is a rule for the location of the backlinks per se. But just make it look natural. I would definitely start getting some local links. Try to reach out to people in your same niche asking them for a link trade.

    first of all check your onsite seo... it should be perfectly made and then try to find something else for ranking and links.
