I've been reading a lot about web 2.0 links lately. Is the strategy as simple as follows?

-Create an account on sites like tumblr and blogspot, amongst other, and then write good quality, original content articles and post them to your new blogs. Have a couple of links point to your main site (with very varied anchor text).

-Use social bookmarking and other methods and point them to your new web 2.0 sites to increase the linking power of the web 2.0 sites.

Is that pretty much the concept? How is creating your own blogs / other web 2.0 sites different from the blog network concept that google has recently punished? Will google value these web 2.0 links as long as the content on them is high quality and original?

    I think there's nothing wrong with the method you just described. I'd even call it a completely whitehat method. All you're doing is writing articles (that are helpful to others), publishing them on as many web properties as you can, and including link to your own site for more information.

    Also, you're getting the word out for your newly created properties by leveraging social media - nothing wrong with that, that's how it should be done in the first place.

    Difference between this and private blog networks? Link buying.

      Thats pretty much the way everyone does. But make sure you stick to original and good content while carrying this out. Would be better if you create a link wheel.

    It's a great way to do link building, and as stated already, the difference between this and the blog networks is that the networks were paid links. Also many of them had posts that were unrelated to the links.

    That is the right idea. Remember to use quality content and vary your anchor text. This is one of the exact strategies we use when building links. With the right content and mixed in with other techniques, this continues to be overwhelmingly effective.

    That's about what I'm doing now. But I typically will wait a few weeks (or a few months and add the link to my website at that time. Or, is it OK to add the backlink at the time you are writing the original articles on Tumbler etc...
    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[6287462].message }}
  • Profile picture of the author Pyramid Linkers
    Its ok to add them right away. There is no point in adding an extra step into your workflow. The benefits for waiting to add a link would be marginal at best. You can use that time to write more quality articles and build more quality links.

    • Right idea but to make more juice, we will target the bookmark by wikis and blog commenting but make sure that the bookmark has high PR.

  • There's nothing wrong with your strategy you can do web 2.0 and bookmarking as many as you can but do it manually so that you site will not be spam.

      If possible, definitely use unique content on each tier 1 web 2.0 property... or a really well spun high quality article.

    You're definitely on the right track, you can increase the link power of those web 2.0 pages even more by adding an extra tier. mass article submission with varied anchor text linking to the web 2.0 pages, and then social bookmark everything (including every article submission)...

    Your strategy needs a bit modification. Build a web 2.0 pyramid in Tumblr, blogspot, blog.com etc. Point ONLY ONE link to your own website, another to wikipaedia/yahoo/any other and third to next web 2.0. Couple of links to your own website will looks spammy. This works for me and I regularly use this technique. It doesn't looks spammy as well.

      Hi Demango25,

      Of late, I have been toying with the idea of buying either AMR or UAW.However, since penguin update, I have put my plans on the backburner and waiting for more inputs lest my money site gets hard hit. Now even if I go for AMR (one-time fee, but recurring decaptcher or deathbycaptcher expenditure), or UAW (recurring $67 expenditure which is huge), which one do you suggest should I go for in terms of safety and effectiveness? I have another question: can I use AMR without any code breaker? Will it work or will it create only spammy links which is not good in the recent scenerio?

    Here is what I have done so far. For the main site, I've created over 30 completely unique, high-quality articles (wasn't easy but is in a niche I personally know very well). I plan on getting over 100 articles written when all is said and done.

    -Created a Squidoo page with one link to the main site and one link to my blogspot blog. Also, one link to an authority site.

    -Created a blogspot blog, wrote 5 unique articles. On one article, pointed link to my main site, one link to authority site, and one to my weebly site.

    -Created a weebly site, wrote 4 unique content articles. Same linking scheme (1 total link to site, 1 to yahoo/wikipedia/other, 1 to tumblr blog, other articles don't have any links)

    -Created a tumblr site, wrote 5 unique articles. Same linking scheme (1 total to site, 1 to yahoo/wikipedia/other, 1 to hubpages site)

    -Created a hubpages site- still working on it.

    I plan on making a posterous site, a wordpress, so on and so forth.

    I've done manual social bookmarking of all these new blog sites (15-20 links or so to each). All the linking has very varied anchor text and half the time is just the url.

    I assume this is the right idea? I've read about using different IP addresses when posting to the web 2.0 properties. Does this even apply here when I'm not ever creating multiple blogs on the same site (only one blogspot, one tumblr, one squidoo, etc.)? Is there something I'm missing with that? I'm usually in up to 5 different locations when actually posting an article to these sites. Let me know and thanks again for your help.

      How long does all this take? I would imagine, it is going to cost a bit to pay someone or for you to do it, it will take a lot of time. Is the time / money spent well worth it?

        I don't know yet. I'll let you know if and when the strategy pays off and money starts coming in the door. I've gotten to the point though where I can put out some quality articles really quickly. I just do a little outlining ahead of time and then can type up an informative 400-500 article within 15-20 minutes. When I first started out doing it would take 2 hours. I can only do this because I know my niche really well and it's something I could go on and on about.
