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.

    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.

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

    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!

    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

    His techniques are pro Penguin. They dont work anymore.

    when you build a brand you don't need Google.

    Pat makes money through his brand, mostly affiliate signups for hosting (Bluehost?). It's easy to throw a couple grand at a site like that security guard thing when you are making money through other means - be it a good job or something like what Pat does (sells products/recommends stuff to his loyal - and often "blind" - followers).

    The point is - that site ranks because of some really strong links which are easy to acquire with a little investment. All the other links are just noise.

    The main benefit of brand name we get in SEO is people type the url directly or they search with the name of website thats why your site is given higher value..

    Brand name can be built using various methods of advertisement, you can advertise in magazine, newspaper, tv, classifieds sites, you can purchase space on quality and popular sites etc.

    Well, he updates the link building strategy when needed and openly says that the technique is only a starting point but in no way is it the only thing you should be doing.
