Private networks seem to be a huge key to getting good rankings..

I just can't thank you guys enough for some of the advice I've got on here.

Especially the advice about starting my own private network, as a newbie to private networks, that was without a doubt the single most potent piece of information I've got on WF.

I was posting TONS of content to web2.0s, backlinking the web2.0s, and not really seeing any crazy results. Probably because google knows they're all being made by the same IP address, I'm not really sure.

So I began leveraging the fact that some of my friends/family have hosting accounts, and I offered them money to register my own domains in their accounts. I also offered to pay for hosting, but none of them wanted money since they already have plenty of room to share hosting.

This may sound risky, by my plan is to still pay them a portion of the hosting, so their hosting fees are reduced, by having my domains in their accounts.

Anyway, with the little bit of backlinking I have been doing using these domains, I have already seen a net /\ 450 page increase between 10 of my keywords over the past 2 weeks (yes I can prove this - just ask). There could be a lot more factors playing into this, but I still feel like this was the single best advice I got on WF in terms of SEO.

So now my goal is to just build these sites out with more pages, potentially register a couple more domains, and keep at the backlinking.

I guarantee my keywords will start shooting up to page 1 within a matter of a month or 2.

Again, I'm not sure how responsible these networks are for the massive increase in rankings that I've seen (I've also been doing youtube videos and various other things/as well as a potential spam filter that may have let up 3-4 weeks ago) but whatever I'm doing, seems to be working incredibly. 1 month ago my keywords were ranking TERRIBLY. Nowhere to be found in google. Now 10 of my keywords are between pages 2-5, and continue to show a steep upwards trend.

THANK YOU! -Red

    Of course, they are quality links... if you managed to host your domains with your friends host.... good idea of sharing something.

    Yes sir,

    Private networks are amazing for getting your website to rank. Quality backlinks are more important than ever right now! I noticed a lot of folks are giving up on SEO because low quality no longer works, this is time to strike while the iron is hot.

    Not sure why you do so much hassle... You can get quality PR3 domains for 10 bucks (if you search), no need to build links to them. You can get hosting for $2.99 / month...

      Sometimes there's more to domains than just "PR". I have a PR3 with a DA47 that would sell for way more than $10. I am getting $27/month blogroll income from it.

      Perhaps you have to explain the method, most people don't know how.

      In short just Google Hayden SEO he explains it all at his blog.

      I've search here and abroad and I still can't find anything with pr for less than $80. Mind sharing a link? I'm trying to build my own network as well with 5 domains only 1 of which has a pr-1 rest are new

    lol sounds more like a cellular plan

    it's not a private network you've created but rather a

    friends and family plan:

    nice idea to ask them, all that varied hosting accounts and ip.

      Agree with nik0 - check out nohat, get scrapebox, get a vps and start scraping for high PR domains. I'm sure its been said before, but PR is no longer the king...there are other factors to look at like MozRank, Domain Authority, age, referring domains.

      The great thing about the private networks (and the reason they will be around for a longtime) is that there is a barrier to entry so most people won't do it or will give up. Powerful domains can be hard to find or cost a lot, you have to learn how to set up a hosting account with unique IPs, setup the unique nameservers, learn how to efficiently manage the network, pay for hosting, set up the sites, the list goes on.

      Point being - SEnuke can't setup a private blog for you. You have to take action. Start small....grow big.

    Private Networks are a great way to get some ranking. I own a private blog network myself, and I can say that a lot of people have benefited from it. You can check my signature for more info.
