    Hello BHW,

    My profile is new but I have been lurking the forums for a year now. First of all I would like to thank you all for teaching me, and even though I've always been present in these areas (web design, graphic design and similar topics) and can say that I know quite a lot, there is always more to be learned. I am really grateful to be a part of the community even though I've created an account just now.

    All that 'emotional' stuff aside, I would like to present to you a 'method' and see what some of you would think about the development of the business. During my lurking, I've stumbled upon a thread where a member whose nickname I can't remember (sorry if you read this), has created a method of targeting businesses such as dentists, worked only for the ones which could rank well, such as the ones with aged domains and such and then offered them SEO services. He then went to build a serious business around his SEO services which he was targeting for local customers.

    Last night I remembered the thread and gave it a thought. I live in a small, developing country in Europe which is not that rich but people love to be first and above their competition (most of people do but people here are burning of desire), which is the first positive thing of the idea. The second one is that most of business owners here are not familiar with tech and would just like to know how they could rank first for their keywords. Even though I know basic principles of SEO and advanced knowledge in web development, I am sure I can rank all of them higher than they are right now, just because it looks amazingly easy.

    SEOQuake shows me most of the domains for businesses I would target are 7+ years old, none of the businesses ranked are doing anything special, it means the engine just treated them better by some guidelines, which means it would be easy to satisfy the customers. Now I need some help with the tools and the process.

    1. How would you recommend me to rank them along with the basic SEO (let's say WP plugins, keywords and such), buy some Fiverr SEO gigs, buy some third-party SEO service along with the basic one?

    2. Which tool for monitoring success would you recommend? (So I can see how successful the SEO was).

    Thanks, hope I can get some answers and start preparing to reach out to businesses and start

    1. If you are serious, you shouldn't use fiverr for any seo stuff and read more to do seo yourself without buying any service
    2. there are plenty of software/site, google rank/keyword tracker

    Please do not use fiverr. They use the exact same service for a lot of other people, which you can imagine does not make you unique, and not being unique is something google does not like very much.

    So can you recommend any good, advanced services? Some of those found on the marketplace? I just need something that would assure ranking up along my basic SEO.

    Yeah you can go with your basics.
    But you have to balance both the ON page and OFF page methods then only you will see the good results.
    Try to get quality backlinks instead of quantity.
    Good luck for your new project:)

    Thank you Montsterer. Well that's exactly what I am asking, I need someone who can get me some quality backlinks (that's what I was trying to explain with paid SEO).

    You need to build relationships with bloggers in your country, create a unique inventory and you can deliver quality backlinks to your local customers, don't use fiverr as all you're getting is automated spammy links using software and this will damage your clients sites which can have a real effect on their business and isn't fair on them. All links should be inside unique and relevant content towards the clients site to be of high quality.

    There are no quality bloggers in my country. Most of these blogs worth mentioning are girls making make-up stuff. Should I just buy a bunch of domains and start some of those blogs myself, try ranking them first and then offer SEO services by backlinking my customers from the blog?

    That would seem bit obvious if you're doing that yourself. I'm sure you will leave a footprint since the audience (Your country) doesn't have too much engagement in SEO !

    I think the best you want to do is start looking for quality web 2.0 webpages. By quality I mean premium, These are Major things things the BIG PAY SEO link building Tools those.

    I would recommend using scrapebox.( I'm no way related to the seller ) which these you could find audience and build report. If you have good report you can get free guest posting. The same tool with also help you in finding premium web 2.0 for manual registration.

    It might be a tuff task at a start but believe me you'll enjoy it when it starts paying off. Google loves Slow and Steady... That surely wins the race.
