I'd like to ask You about SE Marketing. I am in a very competitive industry. It's impossible to get links from themed sites (all competitors), there are no fan/information sites, just pure-commercial ones.
Let's say that i can invest some money in SE promotion/marketing. What should I do to rank #1? I can buy diferent domains, diferent hosts, create a lot of sites and link them together ....?
eclipse...if there are no information sites then that's your opportunity...build the definitive information site...offer reciprocal links to all your competitors...but put the link to your services first on each page...keep the information up to date and watch the traffic grow and the customers roll in
don't compete directly unless it's either easy or there is no alternative
the relative importance changes between search engines and over time...aim to get everything right...start by changing the things it's easiest to change so that you can start getting better results quickly
