I have a coupons-code web page that receives 40,000 unique visitors a month, but its numbers are stagnant or dropping because it is #3 in Google's SERP. 75% of its visits are new and the page has been around since 2007.
I sincerely think my resource is helping people and I sincerely think I am loads better than #1 and #2 because I have the freshest coupons and I have no ads -- so I am at my wit's end on how to raise my SERP. The rest of the sites in #4, #5, etc., are huge coupon broker sites so I really have no chance pursuing link exchanges. Meanwhile, the site in #1 and #2 is also a small guy who also have been around since 2007. None of them update their coupons page near as often as I do. (The #1 guy updates once a month. :( )
My readers do not use Digg, StumbleUpon or Twitter, or have blogs of their own. I tried Facebook's Like button and tweet reader comments via bit.ly but got no SERP improvement.
How can a site ask readers help to raise its SERP? Or any suggestions?
