    How would you do off-site SEO for a site with millions of pages? Thanks!

    If you have a million pages on a site and you are not getting natural backinks it means you have pure Spam

    Almost 10 million actually. All my traffic is organic from Google. It's not spam. I never said I wasn't getting any natural backlinks.

    Choose a few keywords to target at a time. Focus for some of the keywords you'd like rank first, and focus all your seo on that to start. Then move on each month

    Don't listen to people here and ruin your site with GSA spam. You can kill a big site with poor quality SEO just like a small site.

    You either have the budget to do quality SEO to these pages or you do not.

    If you can't do every page then just do the hub pages in your silo. And if not that then just the home.

    Spamming it is retarded.

    Build links to category and sub category pages, that juice should then benefit the individual posts too. Just my opinion.

    I'm staying white hat since I'm already making good money from it and don't want to ruin it. what budget do you think is needed for quality SEO? If you had the budget, what would you do specifically?

    I've had success building micro-sites that have unique content that ultimately filter traffic into the authority site. For example... making a "little amazon" store with hundreds of categories and thousands of SKUs will have a hard time ranking for any one category. Building a niche website say for "Amethyst Necklaces" that dives deep into all the considerations and options of "Amethyst Necklaces" is a good way to boost that part of the site... I just engineer the microsite to complete the purchase on the main site. It is all white hat because each dedicated microsite offers value beyond what is on the main site and it is very targeted for relevance and quality experience.

    This is also a good way for improving SEO for a website where the engineering team won't let you make the changes you need to make.

    From zero to TEN MILLION indexed pages in a year? You posted over 25,000 articles every day? You say it's not spam but how are you generating that much content otherwise? You must have some very deep pockets.

    For quality SEO to two million pages? Perhaps $10,000,000 a year lol? Hell I don't know at that point. Two million pages is ridiculously large. Do you want to START by doing all those pages?

    If you siloed correctly then you should be able to do SEO to just the hub pages and let juice flow down. How many hub pages you got?

    It is a slow process and we need patience for this type of SEO.
    I buy domains and add links of my site for marketing and advertising of my site.

    4266 hub pages. I'm not looking to build links to 10 million pages. Not sure I want to build links to 4266 hub pages either.
    I did build 176 links manually on reddit a while back which seemed to help. I have no other significant linking. Traffic (mostly organic or returning - 99% from Google) is much better than expected and growing.

    I want other ways to increase the overall ranking if at all possible. It's a quality site, I'm really excited about the success so far, and I don't want to spam out links. I posted in the white hat section hoping to learn something.

    Thanks to everyone for the ideas!
