Hi Guys I just need a little advice on how to outrank my competitor. If you can guide me on the right track. Here's the stats of his backlinks on ahrefs: So the domain was created on December 2014. Here's the graph. He started building his links a week after he created his site. I've check most of his backlinks and what i have found out that he is getting backlinks from a hompage footer link with Pa 30+ DA 20+ sites. He actually has more than 10 of this backlinks. Some are web 2.0 with 2-3 article post and some blogpost to some 10+ PA 10+ DA sites. He also has an EMD for the keyword that his ranking for. The rest of the competition are not targeting the exact keyword that I'm ranking for. Btw what i'm currently doing is i have already finish setting up my website. Its a new registered domain with EMD for the keyword that i'm ranking for. I have a 900 words hompage. I have also Blog Page, About Me, Contact Me and FAQ Pages. I did onpage optimization for the keyword that i'm targeting. For my tier 1 links I've already created 5 web 2.0 with 3 articles, about me and contact me page. Created Social bookmarking accounts from FB, Twitter, Stumbledupon, Instagram, Google plus, Delicous, newsvine, scoop it, diigo all with a unique email ad and name. Youtube and slide share done as well. I haven't created tier 2 links. I'm doing this manually so that i can learn SEO bit by bit. Am i on the right track? I'm almost a week building links to my site. If you have some inputs on how to better build links to my site I would really appreciate it.
