    I have about 25 low competition (and by lowdown petition I mean I checked the first page of google results :)), and I feel it would take forever to do full blasted entire link tiers when the first few results just have 0-2 backlinks each. Is there some easier link building I can do, or do I still need to go all out( maybe this will help me get to the top, and stay on top).

    I have both GSA and SEO Content Machine.

    Thanks for any help. :)

    Low Competition. Do good on site optimization then 2 to 3 tiered blasts would get you on first page. Then use indexing service for fast indexing.

    Use content machine, indexing service, and GSa machine to rank low competition niches. I believe following these mechanisms you will be able to rank your low competition websites.

    Create quality first tier web2.0 with related content(choose high PR web2.0 like weebly, tumblr and the like) and boost that tier with second and third. At times, few links will get your site moving. When using GSA, create campaign targeting two long tails seperately and check the movement to go furthur.

    I suggest you do what you are use to and what works..

    If it takes you to your desired position, it might be hard to crack down.

    Adding just content to your site or blog isn't off-site SEO and leaves you at the mercy of your competitor.

    For very low competition a good quality article, good onpage and a couple of backlinks should be sufficient.

    My experience is that Google likes to see this structure, complete with breadcrumbs.

    Brandname > Big Keyword > Small Keyword > Long Tail or Whatever Title

    This is also sometimes called the silo structure. It is extremely effective at calling out what is important on your site to Google. If you had 10 big keywords and 50 small keywords, you could end up creating 10 big category pages, 50 small category pages, and 150-300 subpages to the small categories. This will set up your website to concentrate link juice on those big category and small category pages, putting you at or near the top for those keywords. (Wikipedia is hard to beat.)

    As a second round of work, you also will get a lot of goodness out of internal linking your pages' content to each other. Google likes to see links coming from different contexts, so embedding links in the content achieves that.

    You'll still want backlinks, of course. Do as much as you can without looking like spam to Google. Tiered backlinks from blogs on separate hosting seem to be the way to go.

    I thought I had good on-page SEO, but apparently not, as the multi-niche blog I'm trying to rank (with each page/post being its own niche) is proving difficult to rank. I made a test EMD site, and have even less content on it, with around the same competition, and was able to get it to the first page without a single backlink, and even less on-page content...go figure. So perhaps the on-page SEO for this larger blog is garbage? :(

    I do not know how to use GSA and SCM for tier one, and I've read from many others around here that it isn't a good tool for Tier 1, but I'm not sure.

    What do you mean by blasting?

    I have SEO Alchemy's 5,000 Bookmark list, and I might plug it into GSA and have it drip feed directly to the money site, with 20-40 new bookmarks a day. :)

    Could you elaborate, or perhaps point me in the right direction on how to use GSA for low-comp niches? I only know how to use it to blast tier2/3 links.

    This is what I've done before, haven't really seen any results with web2.0s yet. The issue I have is they generally have to be authority sites on their own, with a good 5-10 posts each on them (if I'm wrong, please let me know :)), and each posts needs to be a good, proper article. That's a lot of writing for a niche that has little to no competition...but if it's what needs to be done, I can certainly do it.

    Yes, I've come to realize after a few weeks now that my site won't just be ranking with on-site SEO alone. I need to build backlinks, and that's the point I'm at. :)

    Thanks again for all the responses everyone. :D

    Establishing quality articles with a minimum word length of 500 words would be a great way to start. The method of disseminating those articles is entirely up to you. Ah I remember when reciprocal links were the way to go for me.

    Just because the first few results don't have backlinks doesn't mean it's low competition. If those are pages from authority domains then it can be tough to beat them if you don't build some quality backlinks yourself. Spamming tools aren't a great option either for low competition results because it's a waste of time for very little money and short term results. You'll need some high PR and related backlinks if that's the case - not many though.
