My strategy is pretty simple, I do a Google search of my sites niche and find a high PR site (My competition) I then use a backlink checker. I can't post links, but PM and I will tell you which backlinker I use, though you can do a simple Google search for "Backlink checker" and find one. You're going to type the URL of your competition into the backlink checker and wait for the results. Depending on what backlink checker you use..it will show you where they left their backlinks. So I go to each site they went to and leave a backlink also. In addition to creating backlinks in .gov domains and .edu domains. Depending on the competition of your niche, they may have thousands of backlinks, so it's hardwork. But I always give myself a goal like 50 backlinks a day. I mean they're ranked high for a reason whether its backlinks or not, it can't hurt to backlink where your competition backlinked and then one up them by backlinking on a view .gov and .edu sites. Anyone else do this?
