You own a site, you SEO a site but you do not want to venture into the gray space of buying (relevant) links from third party web sites. Either you are nervous you will get caught, you want to play by the Google rules or you don't have the budget to buy links - whatever reason it might be.

How do you compete against sites that are buying links to succeed in Google, Bing and Yahoo?

The WebmasterWorld thread has some tips from SEOs on what they do. Here are some and as stated in the thread, they don't always work.

  • File a link spam report
  • Out them in the news or well-known blog
  • Be creative and get free natural links from quality sites

What are some of your ideas?
