Hello guys. This is my first post on this forum, I discovered you guys a few days ago and have been here trying to learn as much as possible, this looks like one of the strongest communities to learn SEO. I open this thread to ask you some advice on how to proceed with my situation. I work in a family business where we have our MS on #1 position in google with the keywords we need. The thing is, that the biggest competitor we have in my city is blasting his money site with rankerx/gsa backlinks. My site has a decent pbn which is backed with some rankerx links, and I have also purchased quality backlinks in newspapers, kown blogs, mentions in decent sites, etc. So far I have been working "clean" for google not to catch me, we try to offer our clients the best service available, our site is user-friendly and so far it is going well. The thing is, that our competitor in the last 2 months has grown SO MUCH, I inspected his ahrefs and the power he is getting is amazing, like, my site is everyday going down in ahrefs ranks etc, every month I get a few quality backlinks while his site is just growing and growing by just having the trash backlinks aiming at his site. He has like 30 backlinks per day coming from .ru/chinese sites etc yet google doesn't penalize him? I am afraid that very very soon he will get the desired #1 position and I dont know how to proceed, I don't want to get my site dirty with gsa/rankerx links, but somehow its proved that my competitor is achieving his purpose of getting ranked in our niche with just trash moves and google doesn't do anything, what could I do? Thank you in advance for anything you can help me with, I will be deeply appreciated. Have a nice weekend and excuse my English since it is not my mother language.
