    I have a local company, what can I do for our offsite SEO?
    I have tried posting a few back links to my site, by commenting in popular blogs in the area, but they have been brought down.
    I´m not sure if I'm posting in the wrong places or if I´m making my content wrong.
    I´m not looking to hire any experts just yet.
    Thanks!

    In addition to building backlinks on local sites and getting listed on sites such as Google Maps, building citations is something you should focus on for local SEO. In case you're wondering what a citation is, it's when a website references your business by name, phone number, address, and possibly even your website link (although it's not imperative for a citation to have a link).

    You can learn more about offsite SEO for a local company by visiting the Local SEO subforum. If possible, try to find Techxan's old posts

    It's possible the site owner thinks your comment is not good enough or not related to their blog. This type of thing is usually very subjective. And, of course, this is the problem you will get into when trying to get a few backlinks.

    Ideally, you should be creating the type of compelling content that makes people want to link back to you.

    I don't know what your niche is, so I can't say what type of content this would be. Typically, lists work very well when it comes to evergreen content that gets backlinks. For instance, an article entitled, 'Top 100 places to get free advertising for your site'. will get lots of great quality backlinks from webmasters. You can apply this idea to any niche and any subject.

    you can use some niche forums, social bookmarking and directory for the backlinks, create 5-20 backlinks a day and it will improve. use localize keywords;
