I know my income for these sites will increase substantially if I could figure out how to get them to that #1 spot, or even up a spot or two in each case. Here is what my SEO strategy looks like:
Using wordpress and doing all the necessary on-page SEO including but not limited to All-in-one SEO pack, XML sitemaps, and many other little things I have done on my site.
Off Page: I use BMR as my main off-page SEO plan. I will normally build a link every other day to a site (for each site) and they are typically anywhere from PR 1-4. I throw in a few manual blog comments and profile links once in a while.
I just started writing articles on an article directory linking to my sites, and plan on using BMR to build links to those articles to get some link structure going - will this help a lot?
I guess what I am asking - what is the next best thing I can do to climb those last couple spots in the SERPS? Just keep doing what I am doing? Perhaps buy high PR backlinks?
No blackhat stuff please,
