Hello! I created a sort of membership type website last year so my domain is aged about 1 year and it's EMD. The competition for search is quite low because it's a local business type of keyword. For example (Denver Dentists, Boston Lawyers etc..) My keyword is nowhere near as popular as these cities so I was wondering if I could rank it up onto the first page on my own with white hat methods. Because I am a noob I am thinking for now just get some backlinks by creating social media profiles and maybe getting some .edu links from a .edu list I have. Site currently gets about 70 UV a month without ranking at all. So if I could get it to the first page I could then find customers =). All replies are greatly appreciated.
