I've been using Market samurai to look at SEO competition for keywords and very often sites in the top ten have thousands of backlinks (though some seem to get in with zero!).
Now I'm sure I'm not the only one who doesn't have time to write thousands of articles for backlinks and I understand that google (quite rightly) blacklists those that use spam methods ...
Whilst I'm happy to write a few articles to backlink, I wondered if there were any legitimate ways to speed things up a bit and if anyone used them?
That's probably the main reason I didn't sign up for Market Samurai after the trial period - it made me feel so demotivated!
I could see it provided valuable information, but the Competition information just made me feel I might as well give up, because I'm so far behind in the backlinking stakes and I refuse to get down into the paid backlinking sewers (well, actually, I did climb down but I felt so filthy I climbed straight back out again).
Read Lissie's blog, she has some good ideas:
