Is this kind of link Building Safe?

Hi,

I analyzed one of my competitors backlinks & saw that he added his backlink in near 20 domains (own by one person) & then for some reason they delete the backlink (because now I check the backinks but there was no links available anymore). This caused them to be number one for the term pest Control, in Australia, even though their website is not quite perfect.
So my question here is this: Is this safe?
This is one of the 20 websites I mentioned : 88ba.org
Totally garbage website just for making links for their clients & Deleting them to avoid Panda penalty .

Can I Do the same? is it safe?

    What exactly do you mean that 20 domains were owned by one person?
    How do you know they were from the same person?

    Do you mean that the same website created multiple backlinks to your competitor?

    Also, think of links as a vote.
    If a good quality website votes for you and then the vote gets deleted then the influence also gets removed.

    What did you use to get the backlinks by the way?

      Hi Peter,
      Thanks for your reply,
      Assume xyz.com is my competitor, I used SEO-Spyglass software to extract its' backlinks, & It showed me near 20 domains linking to xyz.com, All of these 20 domains has same one or 2 page structure as I posted one of them above & the backlinks to xyz.com was deleted but the xyz.com is ranking at the top! without any other backinks!

      I also confused on this point, how do you know they (20 domains) were from the same person?

        I didn't check the whois but due to similarity in design, I guessed they are all from one person or one seo company, maybe wrong! why does it matter!? Spamming?

    It's the worlds worst public link network.

    The footer link goes to an SEO business with a parked domain.

        First of all, Google sees domain registration data and knows all those links are coming from one account and/or even worse from the same server block. Obvious manipulation in their eyes which can cripple the domain you are trying to promote.


        The best practice is to create really strong content on your domain. Google WILL see this content as worthy and if you don't try and fabricate links they will TRUST the domain.


        Of course this takes time. When we start a new domain we just load it up with a dozen or so extremely strong pages/posts, then I wait about 6 months to see if Google "likes" what it sees.


        If, after six months you notice a trickle of traffic to your new domain then you can go forward and POUND it with more great content.


        This gains more trust with Google, and the fact that you never created a single link using manipulate tactics means your future will be bright.


        I know that most newbies think that's crazy because they want traffic and income RIGHT NOW! Unfortunately the waiting game is part of it.


        When we started out (2003) we took three domains and ran them squeaky clean as described above. No tricks, no links, no forum signatures, no guest posts, NOTHING. Just create great content and let it marinate.


        With my free time I played around with auto-blogs, grey hat and black tactics, etc. It was fun and for a very limited time some of those tactics worked. Then they were knocked down.


        I always used private domains and different servers registered with a throw away business name so that my black/grey work wasn't associated with my "clean" domains.


        Over the years those three clean domains gained rank in with the search engines. And now 14 years later those three domains make 95% of our income. We both quit our jobs 10 years ago and our current internet income is 3-4 times hire than our combined incomes were.


        So those newbies who desperately want to quit their day jobs NOW and go full time should resist that folly. Keep your day job and start building high quality content. Time will then be on your side.


        And don't listen to anyone whos says online income is a fantasy and that all work-at-home-schemes are scams. There are many people who make fantastic livings online. We now work about an hour a day and last year was our best year ever.


        There have been bumps in the road along the way, and I'm sure they'll be more. However, as long as you enjoy writing and creating content you will reap the rewards.

          Thanks TZ, Appreciate this thorough & hope giving answer & wish you'll get even more income from internet

    From reading your description it sounds like a black hat method that would not be a safe long-term link building practice. I would not advise you to use that method.

    Obviously, that kind of link building will only make your website worst rather than helping your site as well as for the users.

    Its a really confusing debate I must say. Probably their links were not good, so when they removed it it gave them a boost. Or maybe a glitch of google bots? Idk for sure
