    I have a chiropractor who wants me to rank them for Chiropractors __(my city)__. This is my first client, and I don't feel confident spamming his company's URL on profile pages.

    So far I've only used profile backlinks for SEO to promote my own stuff. Now that I have a client, which SEO methods are the most appropriate?

    I looked into article marketing, but its effectiveness is questionable. Although its a lot more professional than profile backlinking for sure.

    thoughts?

    There are many different methods that you can do that will help keep things "white hat", and chances are since you are going after localized keywords you will have an easier time to rank than most other general keywords.

    My suggestion is to use blog networks for backlinks, that can help keep your content on-par and is a whiter hat than profile links and other forms of gray hat SEO.

    That means things like: SEOLinkvine, BuildMyRank, Niche Press Platinum, and other similar blog networks. These range anywhere from 37/mo - 120/mo, but allow you to get a nice diversity in backlinks and allow you to control the content.

    You can also create Linkwheels, or purchase some from the services section here. These are also "white hat" and allow you to control the content. If you want to make it even more effective, send some Xrumer blasts or Scrapebox blasts to your blog network links referenced above or your Linkwheels.

    Most likely those two variations will give you the most bang for your buck and will get you close to the top if you stick with them for several months.

    I concur. Sell on the contract if you don't know what you are doing. You could do more harm to his and your business than good and
    end up in a bag load of trouble.
    Why on earth do you take on contracts when you have no plan of action?
    And you've only sold him SEO? What about email marketing? Social media,
    Online classifieds, past customer reactivation, and the biggest seller now,
    online reputation management? (1 bad review in the 7 box and you may as
    well board up your business).
    Some of you guys are leaving so much food on the table.

    And I wouldn't advise linkwheels and xrumer blasts for offline clients,
    I love it when I see my clients competitors doing that, I give them a call
    explain what their current "Consultant" is doing, the risks to their business
    and credibility and 9 times out of 10 end up with a contract higher paid than
    the last joker!

    Consulting offline clients isn't selling the latest clickbank product,
    Peoples businesses and livelihoods are at stake. Don't look to make
    a quick buck, do it properly and you will be in demand and have more
    work than you can handle.

    I checked out SEOLinkVine. It seems like they only provide backlinks via comments on their network of blogs. If I explain to them this, they might get weirded out. It seems very unprofessional (at least in my mind).

    Well, I didn't want to overwhelm him with all this stuff. I just told him I could get him a first place listing for his business on Google. That's good enough for him..
    I'll probably introduce all that to him once I show him how much traffic he's getting.
    By the way, how the hell do you manage a business' reputation online? I can understand leaving positive reviews to take over the negative ones; but other than that?

    thanks for all ur responses.

    You can't just bury a negative review it will always be there and the search engines won't remove it unless it's proven in court to be slanderous.
    You can't just ignore it either as all the world will see you are ducking
    the issue. You have to address and respond to a negative review head on in a business like approach
    so the world can see you make good on your business.
    If you get caught making fake reviews you'll be booted strait out the box and
    you can't solicit reviews on sites like yelp but you can "encourage" which when
    done right will get you reviews by the sack full.
