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.

    Our site gets a ton of good Indian traffic. The traffic is very engaging in our site with a bounce rate of 10% as an average. We have Google Adsense and Media.net accounts but as everybody know no matter how engaging and good traffic you get they only pays well for high tier countries. So, I am looking for any ad network or advertiser solely looking for Indian traffic.

    Just a reminder of what can happen if you pair HARD WORK, focus, and a dedication to constant audience development: The Credit Card Obsessives Who Game the System Of course, educating people isnít the only motive: Thereís plenty of money involved too. Peterson says that some credit card bloggers pull in more than $500,000 a yearóand thatís not including all the free travel they earn from their own accrued points. Credit card blogs today donít just have display ads and sponsored posts, bloggers also work with credit card companies to promote certain cards, and in return make a profit through affiliate links. Some credit card blogs have even been acquired; The Points Guy was sold to financial services company Bankrate in 2012 and the Frugal Travel Guy blog was bought by Internet Brands that same year. Not only can you fly for free, you can earn half a million blogging about what you love
