    Vs. Sheer Link Mass...How to win?


    Hey Guys,

    I'm wondering how its even possible to beat competitive sites in Google SERPs when they just have sheer link mass advantage over yours. For example, my site is new and I'm trying to get it up on Google for term 'Free Image Hosting'. When I look at the top 10 result backlinks, it just blows mine away with their high amount of backlinks.

    How am I to compete with sites who just have thousands and thousands more backlinks than I do? Is it even possible to compete with them without getting high backlinks?

    Thanks

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news but in todays SEO world backlinks are king (In Google and some cases yahoo) so even if you have a perfectly SEO'd page without the support of a competitive amount of relevant backlinks its REALLY TOUGH

    Not impossible, but this does apply to the majority.

    The higher the quality/relevance of the backlinks you get the less valoume you need and in the end that is the way to go, but you still need some

    Good luck
    Webmasters who spend their energies upholding the spirit of the basic principles [Of Google] will provide a much better user experience and subsequently enjoy better ranking than those who spend their time looking for loopholes they can exploit. Google.com
