About 6 months ago someone else started a BANS site in direct competition with mine. Their site is on the first page, #2 site of Google. This person has NO content, blog etc. all he basically has is the auction listings and some content on the front page (so do I) and about a small paragraph on each auction page (so do I)
The thing is he's currently got about 28,000 backlinks to his site, I've only got 380 so far.
I've been working on backlinks but it takes time as we know plus I've been trying to be careful not to do it all at once so as not to look like spam.
I think my site is way better then the competition but my point is from what I'm seeing it looks like all that's needed to get on pg 1 is to get backlinks and get them as fast as you can. Forget about relevant content or age of your site because google doesn't care anymore.
Your thoughts? I need help here!
ps. comps PR just went up to 3, mines still at 2
