    Hi guys, I just immigrated to New Zealand and will start my college course at Feb 2013,to learn "International marketing and digital marketing" :p .

    I plan to use the method in this thread "Guaranteed $10K a month online/offline hybrid method." to create several local business review site and push them onto the first page of Google search and then sell the advertising place to owners of the local business . I know the SEO part in that thread is out now, we can't get on top 10 just by blog comment . I plan to outsource this part work to some reliable services in BHW. And for more easier to push my sites to top 10, i plan to just focus on the suburban of i live in not the whole big city. And I find in some niches there are no GG place listing in the result of GG search , does that mean more easier or difficult to get top 10? I have checked the top 10 webpages right now, the highest PR is 3 most are 2 or 1 , its not too hard to achieve top 10 right?

    How do you guys think about my plan ? any suggestion and advice will be appreciated. Thank you guys. :eek:

    I think despite the fact that some of the pages are not GP'ed, this method is like swimming upstream, i.e. the local sites which are GP'ed are most likely going to beat yours.

    That is just my opinion. I think I would focus on other techniques. But hey, it is worth a try, I could be totally wrong, but personally I decided against this method.

    Because you are not discussing offline methods.

    I am a female...not a boy, and the methods you discussed are not offline. As someone that solely does offline marketing and has for 10 years, I assure you, my mind is open. You should also be less of a smart a$& when someone points out that you are, in fact, wrong.

    Offline methods are methods of marketing that do not use ONLINE marketing (marketing over the internet). Offline methods include, but are not limited to:
    Postcards
    Mailers
    Cold Calling
    Walk-ins
    Radio
    Television
    Print ads
    T-shirt ads
    Menu advertising
    Cart advertising
    etc.

    I could go on, but you should learn the basic differences before you go telling others to open their minds...it makes you look like you have no idea what you're talking about.

    If you would actually like to learn more about offline methods to help you sell your ONLINE products or services, I'd be happy to assist you.
