I'm trying to optimize my SEO (as we all do). I optimized my onsite SEO, fixing every type of on-site issues (SEMrush + Majestic + other tools) and making a thorough investigation on the "best" set of keywords for my pages (competition analysis+behavioral analysis+internal data). As always, it's an ongoing process, but I'm getting the result I was expecting (higher traffic,CTR,CR + Lower bounce rate). Anyway, now I need to get more backlinks/ref. domains. Looking at my competitors backlinks I found some weird stuff.
-My competitors seem to get visibility from parked domains (a whole lot of them). I know it's bad practice, but they still manage capitalize on that (maybe they create a chain 1 parked to another to their site, maybe they do some kind of rotation, idk).
-Some of the domains with the highest trust flow referring to their domain are not even optimized, mobile friendly, doesn't even have title tag and usually rank in the top 3000 worldwide on alexa and majestic. (at least 30 of those)
Example: This is one of the domain ---> http://www.waw.pl/ (they have a lot of backlinks, but I doubt it's legit/active websites)
I need to get thousands of backlinks to get even with my competitors. I'm trying to do Whitehat SEO, but I can't keep up with the competition if blackhat behavior are rewarded.
What I've done so far to get backlinks/ref.dom.:
-Ask for reviews
-Deadlink hunting on blog
-SlideShare and all of these kind of website
-Creative Common content
-and much more
Do you guys have some ideas for me? Is this game completely rigged?
