    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.

    "White hat" and "link building" do not exactly go hand-in-hand, but yes: that's the way to rank it anyways.

    What? You can build links manually and slowly, that's what hatters do, black hatters just automated the process.

    To make it less confusing. What I am asking is for a keyword that has not much competition like mine and about 1800 monthly searches is it best to do the link building on my own or would is still going to be too hard?

    Your question still not clear. But if you have the EMD for the keyword should be very simple to rank.

    That's what I want to know. Would it be simple/effective to just do some basic link building on my own, or would I need to get some services from say...SEOClerks to make sure it ranks 1st page. Because the keyword has little competition I want to rank in the top 3 spots.
