Okay so i've been reading as much as I can on seo and link building and have been putting it to work on my own website and have seen an increase in PA, DA, and MR and MT as well as some increases in rankings for my keywords.

I wanted you guys to critique my link building plan and see if there is anything I'm missing, not getting right or anything I should add

Link Building Plan
  • Guest Posting on relevant blogs
  • Quality Content for own Blog (Should I be link building for each blog post as well?)
  • Directory Submissions
  • Local Directory Submissions
  • Social Bookmarking
  • Social Media
  • Web 2.0 Profiles:
  • Wikispaces, Xanga, Weebly, Blogspot, etc
  • Blog Posting Squidoo, Hub Pages, etc
  • Create 1-2 infographics and distribute to infographic directories, as well as outreach for placement on relevant blogs
  • Blog Commenting (Dofollow mainly on relevant blogs)

Also for content I haven't been using any manually or software to spin the content, I've been creating unique content for each profile which is turning out to be a lot of article writing. Do you recommend hand spinning the articles first then using software such as bestspinner to spin the content? Or should I avoid spinning in genernal and just focus on producing as much quality content as possible?

Add 1-2 Articles on each web 2.0 profiles for content, should I be adding more content to each web 2.0 profile?

now this is where I haven't put too much emphasis in, which is link building for my web 2.0 profiles, tier 2 link building and I wanted a little clarification on this

Okay so from what I have been reading it's important to build links to your web 2.0 profiles constantly to increase authority of the page and thus links

Web 2.0 Link Building
-Blog Commenting
-Social Bookmarking
-Directory submissions

How many links should I ideally build for each web 2.0 profile for high competition keywords?

Also is there a general rule of thumb or guideline for anchor text? I've been trying to ensure that I have a diverse anchor text profile and using keyword variations as well

Also I know that .edu and .gov links will greatly help my link profile, what is the best method of obtaining .edu and .gov links? I've been reading this article
How to Get Free Full .EDU Articles and Backlinks from MediaWiki Sites

would this be an acceptable method for .edu and .gov link building?

Also I have been seeing some people saying that it's useful to have document sharing/pdf links as well, can someone please explain how you obtain links from this method or a good how to

    I do not mean to get on you in particular but its a huge problem in the SEO industry. Its so common I fully well expected from just reading the thread title that you offered SEO services and found I was right.

    Its only right that before you start offering a service you know how to do that service. the biggest thing I think you are missing is that point. Have your knowledge and your plan in place before you offer a service to the public.

    Your plan is pretty bad considering you are including all kinds of spammy links that either do not work or will be slapped to the pit of the serps again this year.

    Definitely noted, I haven't begun offering any SEO services to anyone yet until I master SEO with my current site, What would you recommend as far as good link building methods? I revised my link building method, please take a look and see if it's any better

    Again I am just trying to get clarifications because there is some misleading information on the forums these days, I am trying to make sure that I create a solid link building campaign

    From what I've read blog commenting isn't bad for seo but doesn't add much value, but you should ensure your real name

    Forum Profiles and Signatures are considered spammy link building methods and also don't pass much value, but wouldn't they be beneficial for targeted traffic? Would it still hurt you if you don't use anchor texts?

    I understand that article directories aren't the best link building method, and I haven't put a real big focus on article directory submissions, I've been focusing more towards guest blogging and gaining links that way

    Blog Commenting (Dofollow mainly on relevant blogs) .. Have nofollow blog comment links too. Most of the blog comment links are nofollow. So, if you have only dofollow links, it does not look natural.

    Build second tire links to you web 2.0 properties. Don't build too much of the profile links.

    Consider having few links from high PR pages, but not in a spammy way.

      Correct I've been also building some nofollow links from some sites with good domain authority and page authority, especially nowadays it's a lot harder to find blogs that have dofollow comments enabled

      How many second tier links would you recommend building for the web 2.0 properties?

    Here is some sound advice for you - DON'T BOTHER!

    Instead hire a GOOD writer to write 4 pages at 2500 words each, with images, and links going OUT to high authority sites, and a few links to your own pages.

    Google sees your links mixed in with high authority site links and embedded in a high quality piece of content. Then wait awhile and watch your income climb!

      Interesting I know in 2013 that content is king, but are you suggesting that you only utilize content marketing for link building? I will definitely have to read a lil more about this, but I do like the idea of creating high quality content with links to high authority sites and linking my own pages within that content as well

      I do something along the lines of this with easier to rank keywords. The harder keywords I do this, and do a smililar backlinking plan, much like OP posted.

        Do you recommend creating larger articles of 4000+ words? or would 1500+ articles do the job?

      For this type of content would you recommend using it on our own blog or should we use the created content for guest posting

        JUST your own blog. Guest posting is in Google's cross-hairs now too. What so many people don't get is that the links your create to your OWN URLs on the same domain COUNT and they count a lot if the page you are creating the links in is exstensive (long, with images etc.).

        Someone further up said this only works for long tails, which is true IF you only created one link. BUT after you have created hundreds of quality articles that have a link to one of your money pages you can take short tails as well.

        Our biggest personal blog is number #1 for a short tail (2 words) keyword search competing with over 600 million results.

        Forget about linking from outside your site and your rankings will improve, and when your rankings improve REAL links are created naturally. We now have over 3000 inbound links to the site I used as an example above, and most all of them are legit in Google's eyes - and we did not create a SINGLE one of them.

      Sure this works if you target long tail key phrases (like 4/5 words), but if you have some competition your "income" will climb nowhere...

      I can't belief people buy these type of advice

      If you have some competition you will need backlinks, you can create high quality web 2.0 properties (yes i still belief in them ) mix that with some links from private blog networks or better yet create your own.

      Create some videos for youtube and other video sites, mix that with press releases and pad submissions (submitting self created software to software directories for backlinks) and you will have a real change to see your "income climb"

      Content alone will NOT rank you site, period.

        Yes, content wont rank your site, but it's much easier to rank your site when you have good content. However, you pointed out some very low quality links, I wonder why.

        High quality web2.0s? When they become quality? When you get 100+ legit links to them and a lot of meaningful articles? Then maybe yes.

        Video sites have mostly nofollow links, doesn't help you much. Same goes with press releases (extremely low affect for ranking keywords). And PAD? Are you kidding? The links that buried deep into the software category which are most likely not related to your site at all?

        Vast majority of the links that you pointed out end up being PR n/a. I bet 50% of the PAD submissions will never get indexed by google.

        I don't want to be rude, but this is extremely bad advice.

          Howe is that, Google can't read content so there you go, i have some shitty sites with shitty content ranking out some top domains with PR, good content is great for the users and giving the SE an indication of what your site is about, nothing more nothing less.

          High quality web2.0s? When they become quality? When you get 100+ legit links to them and a lot of meaningful articles? Then maybe yes.
          I have web 2.0 stuff that i have created 2/3 years ago, some of them have PR4/5 i find them very valuable, sure they are not so great as a blog network, but they certainly help with my rankings.


          Video sites have mostly nofollow links, doesn't help you much.
          Videosites have their own traffic, and if you do your keyword research right, you can have your video's with a thumb in the SERP

          Same goes with press releases (extremely low affect for ranking keywords).
          I have tested this, and i have seen good rankings for midlevel keywords after two/three PR submissions
          And PAD? Are you kidding? The links that buried deep into the software category which are most likely not related to your site at all?
          Related links are very overrated, again Google can't read, you guys seem to think that Google is a human that can read and classify your links.... it can,'t (yet) and yes PAD links have helped me a lot, like PDF and Slide sites.


          I don't want to be rude, but this is extremely bad advice.
          You can have your opinion about my advice, it is a free world after all

          I know that my stuff works for me... you may disagree, that is all fine by me.

        You can't believe people take my advice. We have monthly invoicing from over 50 customers that happily pay for my advice and NONE of the Panda, Penguin updates have hurt them. Their traffic has increased.

        You are playing with fire "creating" links in to your site(s). Our personal finance sites see over 3000 unique visitors a day now because of Panda and Penguin. We never created a single link off-site. Only links to our internal pages from posts that are 1500-3000 words.

        Off-site linking is extremely risky - just create the content and link off to high ranking sites and your own internal pages. You will never get penalized by anything Google changes in their algo.

        In the end you have ask yourself about the advice forum members give. I base it on their time in the business and how much MONEY they make. Our total monthly income is between $25K-$28K when you include our SEO services and our own niche sites.

          I really don't care of you put out a 1000 invoices per day, if you state that you only need content to rank your site then you're dead wrong sorry, your website will do no ranking without backlinking even for the mid level keywords.

          Maybe an aged domain with low level keywords, sure but if you have a bit of competition then you're pages will not rank... You need backlinks to rank, period.

            Azo as I have said many times and you can now see from even this thread -

            YOU CANNOT LEARN SEO FROM THIS FORUM. (you can however THINK you have learned SEO from this forum)

            It is too wide open. You have people posting ideas who are posting only to get a sig link, there are a good percentage of kids, there are people who claim to have ranked everything that have never ranked anything, you have people who do nothing but report on what they heard somewhere, there is contradictory advice and on and on.

            In truth this board is only really useful for those who already know enough SEO to ignore the nonsense. Your dream of learning SEO from asking questions on this board will lead you only down many wrong roads.

            Perhaps it's because all my sites (and client's sites) are build using Wordpress and WP automatically creates inbound links by pinging blog networks.

            If we are talking about a plain HTML static site with ZERO links perhaps you are correct Dave - have not bothered trying that since 2003.

      You do NOT NEED 2,500 words to rank. That is false, and people have proven it over and over and over and over.

      Think about this for a second.



      What is your website about? If it's about how you think the universe is older/younger than scientists think, then you may have to write a lot of "quality content".


      If it's about how to do jumping jacks, you are wasting your time. You can write huge posts all day long, and if you think you are going to rank then you are wasting your time.


      Period!

        Did NOT suggest that only 2500 words is required - read closer. I'm suggesting to people that if they have never posted such content - give it a go, because that kind of content is the only reason we make the income we make per month. Until we started making longer posts of depth, we were paying the bills, but not making F-U money like we have the last couple of years.

            Don't use my sig for making money because we make all our money with niche blogs that get a lot of traffic, and all I have stated in this thread is that for the last 4 years are so we really took with our traffic and that was when I stopped hanging around the Warrior Forum started writing large in depth articles, and STOPPED all off-site linking, article marketing.

            If you search for the word FINANCING USA in Google you will see one of our blogs in the top results (almost always #1) competing with Google themselves, and 126 million other pages. We never created a link to that site ourselves EVER.

                Yep - and 12,000 unique per month from everything else, and the only reason I showed this site is because there is no Adsense for click-bombers, and it's our lowest traffic site of 4. Not giving up the big ones.

                It's content and a good CMS that works in our experience.

                      What in the world are you talking about? I am right here in the USA. So is MY US VPS and it shows the same thing in a US location about 1600 miles away from me . Same sites in a different order in on my european VPS (one position bumped for a site in AU). None of them are you

                      You do NOT rank for that term unless you are backlinking because the one site that could be you has a bunch of blog commenting links and you have been saying up and down that you do not link to your site.

              - Making your content 5000 words per article long wont make your ranks improve

              - Longer articles doesn't mean better quality

              - You can put the best content on your site but if no one sees it no one can link to it. No links = no rankings

              - Competing with 126 million other pages is a great SEO matric to analyze competition :rolleyes:

          Now seriously man...

          To be honest I admire your work. Doing this white hat stuff and pretty much following guidelines. And I also believe that your visitors love your content but ...

          Learn some freaking backlinking man!

          You said you're doing good financially from stuff you already have. Well, I bet you could do at least 5x more if you'd learn to push your sites for some tasty money makers.

          Now, don't get me wrong. I'm not talking about spammy forum and blog commenting and other bulls***.

          I'm talking about long-term quality links that will support your site for a life time.


          My point is that I just see some much wasted potential with your work. So...

          Learn some freaking backlinking man!

            Back in the dark old days of 2002-03 (when I first learning how to write html/php, and create just one simple site) I was trying to link because I was told that was the trick. Never worked out well, but after I started simply writing content using Wordpress the traffic started to finally come.

            Every method of linking I see out there looks risky to me;

            article marketing
            swapping
            purchasing
            guest posting
            commenting
            blog networks
            link farms

            For a handful of examples.

            Link baiting is sound I believe because those are naturally created links.

            It also seems that whenever we come up with a linking method that is SAFE at the time, it's not long before Google whacks it as spam. Then you have to look at Matt Cutts' monkey face and pray he develops a very large roid on his ass. (cause....you know.....when your site gets whacked is always Matt's fault right)

              Exactly how I felt like 2 years back. Once you understand how links actually work and why are some stronger than the others you can literally create your own update-proof linkbuilding plan.

              Yes, let's just hope they don't build those links with the same or near-same anchor text because there is some Penguin always watching.

      ^^ THIS

      High PR links are still the absolute best and fastest way to rank. Instead of wasting time building spammy, useless links, spend time & money investing in high pr domains and building up your own personal network. Think a couple of steps ahead instead! Spam links aren't a long term play.

      You can guest post as well, but you need to know that your article has to be unique. Furthermore, 80% of the blogs that allow guest posting are quite crappy. They are fulfilled with random topics + most likely you can't get a contextual backlink inside the article (only from resource box). No doubt guest posting is a great way to generate traffic and links and it's mainstream as well, but this is not the best link you can get

      What I meant is that you write an excellent article on some sort of topic (this post should give valuable information or/and help your visitors/readers). And then you find people who would be interested in linking to your article (use e-mails).

      Backlinko has put together a really good article about it, you can read it from here: Link Building Case Study: How I Increased My Search Traffic by 110% in 14 Days

    Be *very* careful with Directory links or Social Bookmarking links. Google changed their definition of "link schemes" last fall and added a mention for "low-quality directories and social bookmarking sites".
    I would suggest steering away from them unless you know what you're doing.

    I've done some more reading on some effective link building methods white hat, and from what I understand link baiting with useful content that other websites and bloggers will want to link out to would be a great idea to build natural relevant links from potential high domain authority websites, which isn't an easy process and usually takes some time

    your link building campaign can't just consist on one method you need to use a variety of different methods of link building such as guest posting, infographic marketing, infographic directories, web 2.0 submissions, directories, trading articles which other related sites, company submissions, and building social media links, etc, etc...
