    Other than SAPE , what are the other black hat tactics that you would use for your website? Do any of you still use GSA? Does it still work? How long do you remain up there? How long do you take to rank?

    Im referring to Finance niches for local search engines. Not Google USA.

    No need to go into detail if you don't want to share but you can talk about it briefly

    GSA for 2/3 tiers... But are you referring to local optimization?

    I use very little link building to websites.... In fact I take the opposite direction and rank 1000's of super easy long tails without any SEO. Works for me!

    Yes I meant for local KW's. However citations work best if you want to rank a business site. whitespark is one of the best services I have used for this. BH wise, geo targeted blog comments work well.

    This is also my preferred method. Once My site ranks for those keywords, I move onto slightly more competitive keywords, then onto low-medium competition keywords and so on.

    I don't use any blackhat method for my website, i mostly prefer to do white hat with low traffic keywords which i can rank easily, it works for me i increased my traffic 40% in 3 months.

    So for ranking local stuff, do you need to get around the whole need for a physical address? Building citations, dont you need to submit an address/phone number?

    Ive always thought that ranking local sites is easier, so to build a few and then try and sell them on once they are gaining traffic would be a good technique...but the whole having a physical address thing always comes up.
    Do you do lead gen for the local stuff??

    Sorry for all the Q's

    Don't forget to use the <meta name="rank" content="1"> tag with your hyperlinks to rank at the top of Google. :D

    Don't any of you use SAPE or GSA scraper or any of the likes? All I'm seeing is white hat, white hat, PBN, citations, etc? How about fast shooting up to the top? Its an ancient story?

    On wordpress do you think we should put meta tags on each post/page or do you think it is better to put the tags on the header php

    Do you use new domains or do you count on your domain authority?

    I use the Wordpress SEO by Yoast plugin to place a meta description that contains my keyword and possibly an LSI keyword on each page, although the SEO benefit of these meta descriptions is pretty negligible (when compared to other factors) since I occasionally skip adding any meta descriptions and my articles usually rank just fine.
