I have found some contracting blogs that contractors update themselves and I have been following them for a bit. I also do linking through LinkVana to drive traffic. Just seeing if I am missing anything out there ya know.It can help but it is usually part of an overall strategy.
If you can reach out to a company whos viewers would be good potential customers then those are the people you would want to reach out to and build a relationship with. And that usually involves just commenting without adding your link for a while.

All I am used to doing is blogging, reviews, commenting, and LinkVana...I am trying to find different avenues to go down. ThanksYou can achieve almost the same success but do it in a branded way that gives "relevance" to the social and local community. That I think what they mean by white hat anyhow. ..
I have been kicking around the idea of doing some blog commenting...has anyone had any real success with this?
Thank you very Much!Blog commenting still works, but it's a beaten to death tactic. Some automated programs will generate thouands of blog comments for you, however what used to work really well 2 years will tank your site in no time now. Best thing to, set your google alerts to terms that will bring you traffic. Example, if your a plumbing company that specializes in water heaters set your alerts to new water heater model or updated water heater model. Once you get a few set up the alerts will trigger, now if you get a blog that triggered your alert take a second and comment on it if you can, same for local area blogs, use this technique with g+ and you should see some results.
