    I have one legit website with 1+million on visitor's per month, but I'm still not ranked in google for a lot of keywords since my competitors have 3+ years than me and are getting better positions.

    Would you build some backlinks? I just have some "fear", because every one say that every kind of build backlinks = risk to get penalised.

    Ah, and of course I would do High Quality backlinks with unique content on Guest Posting, Private Blog Networks and etc.

    Thank you.

    If you have 1M+ monthly don't do seo you may fucked it up, instead try to increase your conversion.

    Does your site have a functional sitemap, robots.txt, htaccess?

    Have you ever indexed or pinged a page on your site yourself?

    Wowee! A million flippin visitors a month???

    I agree with Jason - entice those folks into your offer first. Slamming more people onto your site won't necessarily get you where you want to be. What's your end goal?

    You could also turn those 1million into backlinks if you present something they can share with others---something they would link to naturally.

    You don't need to build backlinks to rank coz you have that high traffic and just think about conversion.

    Depending on the niche and the way the site is monetized, 1 million views might not be that much. For an example, if one of my sites had that many monthly views, I'd only get around 4k a month. It would be perfectly fine for you to build backlinks, but don't use PBN's, only build backlinks that look natural.

    This is dirty, but you could also just neg SEO your competition. I wouldn't personally do it but it is a valid option if you *need* to outrank them.

    Disclaimer: My answer assumes that the 1+ million visitors are mostly from search engines i.e. your current site has enough authority.

    I would be very careful about running any contests where your audience is enticed to give back links. Read up on the rapgenius fiasco. You risk getting booted out of the index and loosing the 1 million visitors you have.

    I would suggest not looking at back links at all, since your website seems to have enough authority for Google to be sending a million visitors. If i was you, I'd follow the steps below.

    1. Go back to the drawing board and do keyword research. Make a list of all high volume keywords that you already rank for and want to improve the ranking of.

    2. Based on the keyword list and pages that are ranked, figure out whether your keyword densities are fine. You may be under-optimized or over-optimized. If so I would change the keyword densities of some pages (increase some, decrease some, leave some alone) and wait for a couple of weeks to measure if there are any changes (use a good tool to see ranking changes).

    3. Check the linking structure of your site - especially links from the home page. The pages that you want ranked should be linked directly from your homepage (as long as it looks natural). Your internal linking structure is important for passing equity juice. Also the anchor texts used here are important for keyword ranking.

    And finally - Don't be in a hurry. SEO is a waiting game. You make tweaks and measure it and use the feedback loop to make further changes. All the very best. Hope you can grow the 1 million visitors to 10 million.

    I like these outrageous posts from random members. They post a silly question, forum is answering like their life depends on it and OP never comes back to the thread....

    Actually, I don't really mind it. A forum is a place for information to be spread. If not the OP, the next person who visits the thread would find the knowledge helpful. That's how I got to know a bunch of things anyways..

    That's great.... 1M+ should be more than enough though....
    And whatever you do, do it carefully as you should not affect the existing rankings....
