Pat Flynn's Technique

by 36 comments
I have been reading allot on Pat Flynns site and his techniques.
If someone could help me out that would be great

1. The whole writing Articles, submitting to web 2.0 sites and spamming the life out of the web 2.0 article to protect your niche site...is this an ok thing to do now? Or will G man penalize you for it?

2. Does anyone else follow Pat's techniques with success?

    I used to follow Pat Flynns strategy when I was working for this construction company. We would spend a whole day creating web 2.0 sites.....squidoo, tumblr, article dir etc.

    And then we would use article wizard or some crap to send out spun articles to these sites.

    What did it do? Absolutely jack s*@#. But - maybe others have had a better experience. BUT - why would you wanna spam? Build a strong business =). Either spend big bucks to get the real deal, or get natural backlinks where people are like "HOLY S*@% that's good content, I'm putting that on my site," etc. etc.

    Thanks for the heads up. It was an idea that I have been playing with. I have a real website its very new only launched last week. Im so lost when it comes to bank linking. Im good with on page SEO.
    Its just we dont have budget to pay for any high PR backlinks.
    Ive been getting lots of conflict information on how to get backlinks that im now lost :/

    Too much work. Just get real links with real juice and forget the 'tiered link' strategy.

    Firstly it's not "Pat Flynn's" technique. It's Joseph Archibald's.

    Second, spinning has never worked, it is an unfounded myth spread like widlfire by... you guessed it... the people who make the spinning software.

    If you do not believe me do the following:

    Find two similar niches, similar competition etc. Follow the strategy that Pat Flynn discusses, spin for one and not the other. Tell me if it makes a difference.

    Besides, despite anything anyone ever tells you -> Spun content = Spam (In Google's eyes).

    Google wants to show only one version of something, what good is it for a user if he/she typed in "How to get a job at Google" and the top ten results were the identical article but spun to look original. Which implies that eventually Google will undoubtedly update it's algorithm to penalize spun content that is used to artificially increase the value of the backlinks.

    Forget everything you learn here and simply make a good website about whatever you wish to rank for, write guest posts, use social media/bookmarks, participate in related forums, create press releases, etc. All legit stuff and you will eventually rank.

    It really depends if you want long term success or short term rewards. Google has chased down every "method" bit by bit and its only a matter of time if they havent found yours yet.

    Build a real business.

    You know, Pat does list those steps in his strategy.

    And he has done those techniques for his example site that he used for that lesson series.

    However, if you look at his link profile, you also see a lot of strong, relevant backlinks from authority sites in his niche.

    You will also see that one of his web 2.0 sites that's used solely as a one-way link to his main site is ranking highly on the second page.

    So yeah, you can't just build a bunch of low-quality 2.0's and spam the heck out of them. That's not the strategy.

    If it has never worked, why does Google find it so necessary to keep coming up with devastating algorithm updates to try to address, in part, this exact thing?

    While I like Pat a lot, he also did this YEARS ago. Very different game back then.

    Because he's either an idiot or a troll. Spinning has always worked and still does. :rolleyes:

    Pat's techniques for success have nothing to do with SEO.
    If you don't understand that by now, you really don't get the point of his blog.

    I think you need to read his site a lot more - he's certainly been changing his strategy lately.

    One thing he's doing with his security guard site is adding value, and making it more of a real business.

    It would be interesting to see if this site got hit!

    Didn't say it did have anything to do with HIS success did I?
    I asked if anyone has found his techniques successful!

    He ranks because of some really strong links to the site. That's all there is to it.

    Pat makes most of his money via product recommend and adding value to the life of his web visitors

    I have been following up with his monthly income report

    What blog are you reading? How do you think his adsense sites are ranking? His blog is a brand but he has ranked money making sites utlizing SEO as well!

    @GeekGirl

    That technique still works, but for how long? Who Knows? You can still use Web2.0's but my advice will be to not blast these properties with low quality links. Try and point higher quality links to these properties and even social links!

    What are you talking about?

    Every Google algorithm update has been to address spam. Spinning content is just one entity in a sea of spam out there.

    The reason you and many other people think it works is because it has the same effects as using unspun content. You see results, as at the moment there is no penalty for using spun content. You would see the exact same effects if you used syndicated content.

    In other words, correlation does not imply causation <- Please tattoo those words onto your eyeballs.

    To the OP, I followed Pat's niche site dual for my first ever site and today my site still sits in the no. 1 position for its keyword (for the moment!), which also happens to be an EMD. It's an educational website and is just coming up to a year old.

    I do feel that weak web 2.0 sites will be hit soon. Many SEO strategies include creating web 2.0s just for the sake of providing links to your main site and it wouldn't take long for Google to weed these out. I am guilty of this and didn't pad out my web 2.0 with more content and links to other sites, although if I had more time I would have done.

    Hello guys! I began trying to make a little side cash online and joined Warrior Forum back in 2011. In 2012 I was making Adsense Micro Niche sites and also Amazon sites, always focusing on keywords that I could grab an open .com domain name for. I had many flops, but did have an amazon site that did well and make me about $100 a month on average. I got excited and began writing more and more articles, creating more and more sites. Eventually my marriage hit a rough spot because my wife was upset I spent way to much time on the computer so I walked away from the micro niche site world... Fast forward 4 years, the marriage didnt work out anyway and I wish that I would have never left, I now feel like I have so much to learn all over again! Are Amazon sites still a decent way to go? I woulnt ask for anything to be spoon fed to me I know that is a huge pet peeve for many forum members, but any suggestions or just pointing in a general direction would be greatly appreciated!

    What would you write on your blog when you haven't even launched your product? I looked at 10 blogs and saw that most of them wrote about 'How they achieved and X metric' (non-relevant to the product), culture and other stuff when the whole idea is to gain more 'beta interests'! As a marketer, what will you do? In other words, what will be your content marketing strategy?

    I'm investigating running my own affiliate program. One of the issues I'm running in to is the capturing of social security numbers. In the United States a company is required to issue a 1099 for any affiliate who earns more than $600 a year. To do this I would need their social security number. I worry about storing social security numbers and the potential liability if someone hacked the website and got a hold of them.
