    I own an online computer tech support business that competes with some large entities for keywords. When we first started I built tons of pages (30,000) with spun content like "computer repair CityName" and so on.

    With all the penalties looming, we abandoned that and started fresh with a new domain. Then we went 500 pages of unique hand written content. Each page is focused on a keyword and is SEOmoz A rated for that keyword.

    We did a fair amount of one to one anchor text based link building with a small amount of anchor text variation and got some decent results.

    Now, things are a bit different. We are still focused on content. I wrote an article last month on Crypto Locker that brought us 2000 unique visitors, but I want to know what my strategy should be to rank these damn money keys.

    All the SEOs I talk to now are very afraid, and are doing very safe methods now so backlink profiles don't get fouled up. That's why I figured I'd ask the question here.

    What is the Black Hat community doing to rank? Are private blog networks (undiscovered) the only way? Any grey hat methods?

    Thanks,
    E.C.

    Paid links and private blog network is the way to go.

    Optimize each page for target keyword (url, title tag, meta tag, h1 etc) and make sure the site has a good architectural structure.

    Hit the homepage hard with a ton of high PR links, it will raise the authority of the domain as a whole, and your inner pages will start to rank.

    Then examine which inner pages need some additional work, and throw some additional links at it until desired rank is achieved.

    Easy peezy my neezy.

    Each page is already optimized, and the architecture is solid. What type of paid links (there are so many) and what is the low down on private blog networks now? I used to know which were decent, but now I do not know.

    For what you are trying to do I think you should probably build your own network. That would be the most cost efficient manner, as for what you are trying to do it seems like buying into one will either be too expensive (if it's a good one) or put your site at risk if it's a crappy one.

    Still not sure what to do. Sometimes SEO sucks. I cant' risk shitty backlinks now. My company is worth too much to me personally to destroy its backlink profile. I have another domain which I could use as a guinea pig. It has no PR and a clean profile. I can isolate it on a completely seperate host and IP range.

    I could build by own private blog network. But, from scratch! That sounds like too much damn work without some tools (i.e. content scrapers, spinners and so on.)

    You don't need content scrapers, spinners etc. It's not as hard as you think to build your network.

    You need backlinks. Ranking purely using content is nearly impossible in high competitive kws, unless your site is something big authority lile Wikipedia.

    Instead of build my own network now, I want to buy links on a well respected blog network. Any recommendations?

    You sound like you have a nice budget. Blog networks can get your site penalized if Google does a manual check. With your kind of budget, I'd suggest you build your own network, just for yourself.

    You can make each site in your network a real site, targetting a very low competition keyword. That way, these sites will make you some cash and when google does a manual check, they'll think each of these sites are real and not from a private network. You'll need to buy around 30 aged domains from auction and build high PR links to these domains.

    And yes, it's ok to have blog network links from sellers here to your money site as long as it isn't a big % of your backlink profile.

    Looking into the process now.... buying clean domains with decent metrics and clean profiles seems like the most work. SPAM checking alll the domains will suck. I can have the sites built and the content written easily.

    Or you can just buy aged domains with no link profile or very little amount of links. They sell them for very cheap on namecheap and godaddy marketplace/auction.

    Buy some real guest posts on site with high metrics and you will see the difference for sure.
