I know they are no-follow. I know all they are pretty much good for is traffic, but if you found yourself thinking that you want to have some Tier 2 (or Tier 1) buffer Web 2.0 pages, would you use Blogger, Wordpress, etc, or go the Facebook and Twitter route?

Google Plus is a given since any post there almost automatically pops up in a Google search for the given keyword.

I want to use a handful of each of these, but using Facebook and Twitter almost seems worthless at this point. Am I wrong?

    Definitely the Blogger, Wordpress, Weebly .. etc.
    As Jacob King pointed out in his extremely popular blog post , having 'non-contextual' links in your tiers, regardless of the tier, would do you no good and would break off your link juice.
    Jacob went into great detail so I would definitely recommend you give it a read for better understanding.

    Not entirely. This really depends on your keyword competition.
    Personally, I've had success with tiered link building (Web 2.0's etc), but only with low competition keywords.

    As for using Twitter, Facebook and other social media sites are concerned, they're something you shouldn't ignore altogether. As per this study of top 30 sites for 10,000 keywords, it was noted that social signals do carry some weight, though minimal.

    I'm actualy trying to implement this Social Tiered Linking strategy explained by Alex Becker on his blog. Not sure how it pans out, but definitely worth the read aswell.

    Hope it helps.

      Totally agree.
      We must have link pyramid in place and it should be well planned before starting link building activities.

      We should follow below hierarchy:
      Tier 1: web 2.0 , article submission, doc sharing, wiki links
      Tier 2: blog comment, forum post, high pr social bookmarks

  • Depends on the context

    I wouldn't have them with a 3rd tier, unless they are just there to send traffic

    But if your using it as a platform to send through more traffic I would build them in any channel that your ideal customer would visit

    Perhaps build in all at 1st, see which converts best and then focus on them only

    I wouldn't dismiss twitter simply for the fact how well it can work for direct interaction with clients and industry

    blogspot, blogs, wordpress and other free blog hosting flat forms (other called web 2.0) are do follow. They will always works as long as your backlink is from context. Developing a blog from these sites and post related content to your target site is a sure help.

    If you are using tiered linking, you should never use a platform that is nofollow within any of the tiers. Ever. It stops the flow of linkjuice from all of the tiers behind it. You basically just created a black hole in the tier.

    If it's just for the traffic, then use FB, Twitter, and G+. That said, your question begs another question - why not use do-follow properties like Blogger and WP and gain both the traffic and link juice rather than just traffic?
