    Welcome all.

    Hope that's not too LQ thread.

    I did read couple guides but still not sure ~~ about the proper strategy of shorteners. Currently making Tier 1 of pyramid structure.

    Is it better to:
    - use shorteners pointing to your money site, and then make tier 1 of web 2.0s to shorteners, then shorteners to web 2.0s and continue with tier 2 of backlinks etc

    Or:
    - use web 2.0s to money site, and shorteners to web 2.0s and additional tiers (but not to money site directly)

    And/or:
    - use one of the ways above with that difference you point shorteners to shorteners that point to money site/web 2.0s

    Also how many shorteners should I get in any above case (money site/tier 1/tier 2/tier 3)?

    Thanks

    I shorten my money site and share it on social media (looks natural). I usually build some links to those URL shotners, but no a lot. I focus more on building a good web20 to my money site rather than shortners.

    From what i've read

    Money Site
    Tier 1: 2.0's, PBN's
    Tier 2: shorteners
    Tier 3: sensible amount of gsa links

    Although I have tried this in the last few weeks and nothing has happened. I've been advised to wait more time for an effect though.

    How are your indexing your GSA links? And are you building tiers?

    I'm not indexing my gsa links. I don't know how
    I have only been using one tier of shorteners as a tier 2 linking to the PBN's, 40 shorteners to each PBN post, then hitting the shorteners with 1k links each.

    If you build any contextual links like articles, wikis, or social networks you're going to need to index them somehow or Google will never put it into its index.

    Either build a tier of blog comments, guestbook, and image comments to your contextual GSA links

    Or use an indexer service like Elite Link Indexer or Express Indexer. Both aren't that expensive to start off with. Test both of them and see which one works best.

    FYI if the OP was thinking of using shorteners as a filter to spammier links, he should think again. That tactic was really abused a couple years back and Google is wise to it. I can only recommend using shorteners is reasonable amounts and is more natural situations (they are still really common on social networks).

    If I'm understanding this right, you are creating PBN links, wrapping them up in URL shorteners 40 times each, and then slamming 1k links to each shortened URL, right? If so, just be sure your project is a churn and burn project because that is definitely going to get Google's attention reasonably soon.

    Just checked out elite link indexer.

    $99 per month for 300k links. The blasts that I've been getting are 400k at a time, so that isn't workable. Thanks anyway.

    I would index them using blog comments and such then. I've been getting pretty good indexing rates and they stayed indexed over 10 days now.

    Build like 2k links and track the indexing rate.
