Once I had optimised the homepage of the website I went about creating backlinks for the site. I used Ahref's to check my competitors sites and find where they got their backlinks and I managed to find quite a few Australian directories that had "do follow" backlinks to their websites. So i listed them all and began submitting our website to all these directories. Now after 2 months we are now first paging for "labour hire sydney" and I have maged to create over 25 backlinks for the website. I am going to create 10-15 backlinks each month until I get us to No1 on Google.
I am quite pleased with my results so far and I now realise the time and effort that SEO takes. I hope this can help some of you to understand the key to SEO and get you to first page for your keywords.
