    Hi guys, so far you've been a ton of help to me.
    I started this blog: musclemanic dot com

    as you can tell this blog is in the bodybuilding/fitness niche. I am a bodybuilder myself so I have knowledge in this area.
    All my articles are unique and I write them myself. Any tips on how to get it to rank higher?

    So far i built some backlinks on bodybuilding dot com (#1 bodybuidlign forum) and yahoo answers. Any ideas for more?

    Also what needs improvement on my blog? So far I post 1 article a day for unique content.

    I have some money to invest in the blog, would you recommend any fiverr gigs that are post penguin safe?

    Thanks in advance!

    Contact other blog owners in your niche, and ask to trade links.

    Don't show the full article in the homepage. Just show snippets of articles so the visitor can browse through them all. Other wise they just have to keep scrolling and scrolling and scrolling.

    Get a custom menu up top with categories listed and stuff. And remove the header image, it just covers up the part people are actually interested in. Have the menu be up top with one category drop-down menu and them some other items like a link on, "How to build muscle in 6-weeks" or something then another one for, "Muscle product reviews".

    Here's a fact about your visitors : they do not scroll. If it is not there at the top of the page, then it does not exist.

    Your product review at the bottom of the page; non-existent.

    I click, I see something about a very long article, about workouts, okay, it's long, I'm not going to keep scrolling -> I'm gone.
