Just out of interest, does this still work? Your money site having pointed at it a blog site (not a web2.0 site, a proper paid hosted website, not a sub-domain) which has 10 good quality (5 pages or more) web2.0s pointed at it, with each of those web2.0s with a further 10 good quality web2.0s each pointed at them. Will the link from the paid hosted blog site to my money site be considered a powerful enough link in the eyes of Google?
My only concern is that all my tier 3 web2.0s will be younger than the tier 2 web2.0s they will point at which in turn will be younger than the paid hosted blog. Is this a red flag with Google? Does this type of tiered linking still work? Should I work other types of backlinks into the tiers, after all I have heard that link diversification is a myth?
Thanks in advance,
