    Hi,

    I have searched a term, MYLOCATION Taxis and in Google the local taxi services come up.

    I can see they only have like 10-20 back links, low DA/PA and only a few cititations.

    If I built a new website, with a virtual address and phone number for the location, could I build more citiations and build some web 2.0s and beat them fast and easy?

    Thanks.

    It's an Algo, of course it can be gamed.

    I've ranked Taxi services in the past and it is not Uber (funny!) competitive. Limos are a bear though.

    It is honestly hard to say without looking at all the factors but Taxis in general have not been an issue for me and I suppose for others that do a bit of local SEO.

    If it's THAT low competition, just shoot some sape links at a brand new domain and you should be good to go. If it burns after some weeks, just rinse and repeat to have always several sites in the top 10.

    You should be able to rank your website for the term without too much issue. But you need to study the link profiles of the comp to make sure you can duplicate what they've done.

    I deal with alot of local business clients, couple of web 2.0s, social bookmarking, and profile submission, make sure they are all naked url, then throw in about 10 PR2-PR3 pbn exact keyword, you should be able to crack page 1

    Bad advice, local clients are the most easiest to rank, why throw sape link in the mix and have chances of you burning the clients website, get yourself some pr2-pr3 domains, 10 should do the trick, you can rank for long and enjoy those recurring monthly fees. :)
