Hey Guys, I've been lurking a long time, got my feet a bit wet, and now it's time to claim some positioning on Google with everything I've learnt. So here is what I know about my competitor: - Ranked #1 for the keyword in my countrys google - 160k local searches a month - 1300 backlinks, quite a few are high PR. - Ranked #13 internationally Here is my strategy - Have immaculate on-site SEO - Add a quality unique article daily - Get a full list of their backlinks in SEO Spyglass - Get a backlink on every single one of these pages that is possible, all manual, all quality comments .etc - Buy a huge linkwheel like this one: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...e-optimization-packages-ever-offered-bhw.html - Build a list of local blogs (by URL extension) that have my keyword in their meta data and pay someone to scrapebox them for me. Is this strategy a good one? Am I missing anything? My domain is new, and I realise it will take time to build up googles trust, but in a year I'd like to be #1 locally. Let me know your thoughts, and I'll keep you all posted on my ranking.
