First, Why Should I ?

Can you list your white hat link building techniques. [don't include Guest posts]


Maybe, If one who Focus on own shit :p

Each and every piece of shit still works (except few) only when you know how it will work. BTW a good read for me @back2form


PBN work, But Lots of Risk involved in it.
White Hat link building is safe, secure & Natural all the Time,

Don't say that PBNs don't work. PBNs will work for many years to come ... if done correctly, of course.

lol so when you provide PBN, write a post on how no other link building method works. Same here with guest posts I think. What a load of crap. I am using parasite pages spammed to death by GSA to rank my money website and that shit is still working. And to think that people still look for "manual white hat seo". Like wow !

It seems a lot of people here don't understand what back2form said.

To resume: Stop building quantitative craps and focus on qualitative links, so yes mostly guest post on real alive sites, not from a garbage PUBLIC blog network with high metrics and zero keywords ranked.

That said yes you can rank with your own PRIVATE blog network if you know how to do it.

Google allows different level of spam/low quality depending on the niche, so yes some people can still have success with black hat or even automation but for how long?

Lol, Till now I only knew about these strategies. IMO the best way to rank up in SERPs is to play naturally. Don't overcook anything and the result will be tasty :)

In terms of writing great post for sure. In terms of SEO, black hat is still working great in March 2018 if done, wisely. And, yes for the sites making money out of ads or something similar white hat will be good.

I have a question about YouTube links. in general we know that they are marked as nofollow
but what happens when we copy the redirect from the description of youtube to a post.
he sends us to youtube and shows us a page where he tells us if we really want to follow the link or return to the youtube video. Would this generate a real backlink?

Yes, YouTube links are mostly nofollow
Only one is ********: the first custom link you include, overlaid on the channel art, is ********.

To be honest, Most people care about the traffic than anything link juice.
because, it's Video.

ofcourse, Youtube videos will help your SEO.
but maybe not via link juice.
I am sure you are aware that YouTube content does
rank highly in Google search results even without links to that Youtube video.

So the page you link too might not benefit or see increased rankings,
but the video you have created will rank highly resulting in more traffic to the linked page.

The real takeaways from the OP article is that 1) not all linking strategies are about SEO (WH or BH), and 2) black hat SEO is not white hat SEO, and often has a different ranking goal. The truth is, not everybody is seeking long term, Google-compliant ranking by use of these methods, so it is irrelevant to judge them solely by that WH qualitative criteria. And SEO projects can legitimately have varying levels of quality depending on the tier or other aspects involved, not everything has to be 'first class' in order to work.

BH SEO is frequently set up around short term campaigns or blitzes, or even short term domains, thus making moot the issue of Google penalties. Blog comments can be done for click through or referral traffic purposes, especially if the sites have very large traffic to leech the direct traffic from. Blog comments on hi-metrics pages can be very helpful for building authority to Tier I properties, that are secondary to the main site one is doing quality WH SEO for.

Ezine articles were likewise not originally even supposed to be about SE ranking, they were early devices for simplified syndication and ready-to-use material for people who needed related content on their own niche sites. Such re-used content may be valuable in and of itself, independent of whether it is scored as "original' for ranking purposes. Etc, etc, not everything in link buildiing revolves around white hat, the SERPs or always pleasing Google.

I have been using PBNs from past a few years and they worked very well for me and none of the site got hit by any google penalty.

Its just that the network that you are using and building has to be good and followed by Google's guidelines.

Rest the strategies you have mentioned are all good and will consider or add in my current link building strategy.

Well, as for the PBN... What about this Neil Pattel's article: https://neilpatel.com/blog/google-visitors-hacks/

Look what he said:


I buy blogs purely for the traffic referrals.

It’s true.
I’m not getting all of that traffic based on organic SEO. I buy blogs in the marketing space, and I drive their traffic back to my site.

If you’re thinking, “That’s not something I can do,” don’t write yourself off too soon.

Even if you don’t have thousands of dollars lying around to buy up random blogs, you can still get into the “blog real estate” game if you have some income.

Classical reply, Thanks for the information.

But, I do have a question.

Only Press release ?
No other links along with Press release ?
