I am working to rank a Local Business I have started in an industry that is very competitive but not very SEO competent. I have built a few Manual High quality Tier 1 links. I was wandering if Tier Two links are needed for these to have much if any link juice? I have a couple of wordpress sites built and a couple of more New URL's I have created sites on. These are all pretty high quality backlinks in content but I know they have very little link juice. Any advice is appreciated. I want to keep this project very whitehat since it is tied to me locally and personally. That being said I don't want to have to spend 1000 hours ranking this site. I am thinking of starting a 1000 dollar scholarship program to see if I can score some High Authority links from University's and because College is expensive and very beneficial. I would love to help someone attend college.
