I am competing for a highly competitive search term: Cialis. The competition its pretty wild out there and its hard to keep a top 10 ranking. I am in the first 10 SEPT for Cialis for 11 months but the spamming its driving me crazy. For example my competitors have about 4000 links reported by Google and my site have only 80.
Anyway I am very pissed off because all my competitors are getting their links from blogs and guestbook. Here is a page on witch spammers get their links from an .edu page (edited)
In the first 10 SEPR for Cialis in Google 6 sites are doing this. When Google and Yahoo will put a stop on this. It is so easy to put a filter for this kind of links. Iíve submitted several spam reports on Google and Yahoo but there was no action from them. What can I do? Should I do this too?
>What can I do?
I would send Google your web site and get them to have a very close look at it, maybe they will give you bit of a boost?

if you are going to try to rank for Cialis (fierce market) you really have about 2 main options...
1.) complain about others cheating
2.) cheat along with them

Well, there is a third option. You could try creating a really quality, content-rich site about Cialis. OK, maybe that's niave for such a competitive term. But it still might be worth the time to at least try. Certainly you'll be doing something radically different from the competitors you're complaining about -- and that difference, that uniqueness, might be your long-term strength.
As a fourth option, understand that it's foolish to build your business around getting free traffic from search engines for any keyword, so buy ads. If you drop for Cialis, then your ads may help make up the difference -- and you may still pull in free traffic for related words.
That's the fifth option -- broaden your horizons. How are you ranking for "erectile dysfunction," for example (and no pun intended). It's not the drug you are pitching. But it's the reason people may want the drug -- and perhaps you might find it a bit less competive.

maybe that's niave for such a competitive term.... yep
if you don't spam it you don't play ! end of story...
you could start a blog and then write an article on
There are 600,426,974,379,824,381,952 ways to spell Cialis ;)
and get all your blog mates to link to it .... That works

I know that site, and another on a Viagra prank. Its a great way to get some good links to your blog. It worked for Viagra it should work for Cialis.

when it worked for Viagra it was original and done by an influential blogger...the effect will be nowhere near the same when it is a me too prank ran by someone who is perhaps not one of the most influential bloggers.

It was a good idea. I would not do it because I am not an influential blogger and I do not like to copy. Cheers for the first person that thought at this.

There must be a less competitive, more profitable sector for you to work in... If you can optimize for Cialis, you can optimize for anything - go do high risk lending or large real estate - 1% commission is enough to retire on.

I intend to develop more sites on less competitive terms and live an peacefull life.
Thanx for the advice, I would also like to thank to dannysullivan. Its a good advice and I was already working on it.
