    I am exciting of most of us are trying link building only for their site's improvements in SERP. Why don' they consider other factors even they are having much importance than link building. lets come to the point, major factors in ranking are,

    Backlinks
    keywords and anchor text
    Internal links
    OBL
    Regular updates of the page
    Quality Contents
    Domain Age
    Hosting data

    We often missed to concentrate on other ranking factors. Of course, Link building is the main (42% of whole ranking) factor, but if we try to get concentrated on others also, it would going to be a better path for quite high ranking. please share your thoughts and ideas.

    Agree with most of your input there.
    Local Website Presence
    Having Physical Contact Details on Website
    Localized SEO
    Social Signals

    these would help a lot

    Op, you actually think most "link builders" just consider linkbuilding? as you state in your post. 99% of us can use the search bar here and find relevant information on other factors in relation to serp improvement. Just dont want another DP thread being built for the millionth time :p

    If your server is located in country A, your website will rank slightly (but really really slightly) better in country A than in country B. The reason for this is in the fact that users from country B will have to wait a bit more before the website loads.
