My site is ranking # 1 locally and I want it too maintain its position. Though the competition is not tough but I was wondering if I could use some legitimate SEO method myself or pay for it just to make sure it doesn't lose the ranking.
Is backlink still the most important offsite factor? I haven't done anything for my site lately and don't have any updates about SEO these days.

    So what's your question?

    Yes, backlinks are important. In fact there's not much to "off site SEO" besides backlinks.

    Links in signature will not help your SEO. Not on this site, and not on any other forum.
    Who told me this? An ex Google web spam engineer.

    What's your excuse?

      Alexa ranking has nothing to do with backlinks. It's a usage statistics for their browser plugin.

    Create an official blog and post your blogs regularly and share them. when search engine crawls your website it will makes an positive feedback that your site is updating regularly. At least do some offpage seo like social bookmarking in some high PR popular sites to maintain your rank.

    Want to rank for local keywords? Most importantly optimize your Google place for business. Add keywords in your plus pages and fill the information correctly. Link your website. Encourage your customers to write reviews about your business.

    Your website will be in Google first page pack for most of the time.

    First off, congratulations for getting the top spot

    Actually backlinks are the only off-page SEO factor, if you think about it clearly. Yes, you can do it yourself, but you'll need to do a bit of reading about the procedures first, just in case you're a newbie.

    Best of luck!

    If you got top spot without creating backlink it means the keyword was not competitive other wise it would be a nightmare without backlink. Now all I suggest is use some legit methods to get backlinks like guest posting. use local sites. Google Plus page etc.

  • If you want to stay in top for your keywords in search engine results, you have to create back links. You can go with strategies like posting blogs, guest posts, press release and document sharing. The main thing in these back links is the content. You have to create a informative and quality content. It should be interesting and engaging to the users. Use social media to get traffic for the blogs or any other content you are going to use.

      Backlinks are important but Google doesnt owe the same value to it as it was earlier. Moreover, there are some new updates from Google which one should take care like:
      - responsiveness of websites
      - mobilegeddon
      - meta tag optimization
      - Optimized internal links
      - Text Formatting (use of h1,h2,bold etc)
      - Image optimization (image size, proper image names, use of ALT tag)
      - Create User friendly 404 pages
      - add Google Authorship verification for all pages
      - Create top quality fresh content (This is always the most important SEO factor!)
      - Add External links (no broken links or links to 'bad' sites)
      - Decrease page loading time
      - Give H1 tag to page Title
      - Create robots.txt for website
      - Add data highlighter

      Hope this will help you.

    Yes, backlinks are good for website but do not add your website on low authority websites. Generating backlinks for website does not mean to submit your website on on other websites. The right strategy to follow is to keep your all profiles engaging by sharing right information with the users that encourages them to share it further with their connections. This will not only increase your audience but also increase genuine backlinks for your website.
