The content in one of my blog niches is highly educational, but there is almost few IN ARTICLE backlinks even for the Wikipedia pages. So, almost all the blogs in my niche is lacking quality backlinks.

But my competitors still manage to have manual backlinks from many different resources (I've checked using Ahrefs). So, my website is struggling to rank on Google. As per content quality, I'm in TOP 2-3, but most of my pages are in the second page.

I tried few methods,

Guest posting: I've contacted almost all the sites, related to my website. Only few have even replied to my email and some of them even ask for money for it. However, I wrote few guest posts. But I stopped doing it for two reasons. First is, since I need more than 10-20 backlinks per article, it seems like not enough. The second thing is, it's really exhausting for me to write guest posts.

Skyscraper Technique: This one seems better for me. But as I said earlier, when I looking at my competitors backlink profiles, those are not from good contents. Most of their backlinks are from sites, which seems to have spinned articles.

TLD PBN (Top-level domain Private Blog Network) Method: Building an unique blog network costs a lot, according to my calculations. Even if I made an one, all those blogs need to renew each year, and I need hosting for each of them. So, if I couldn't renew them, I'll loose many backlinks, and it can negatively affect my rankings in the future.

So, I decided to build a Web 2.0 Blog Network

Since it has NO renew fees, web 2.0 seems nice for my project. But when I searching on internet and on BHW, I couldn't find any trustworthy resources posted in 2021 that confirms it's effectiveness.

Is web 2.0 PBN still works in 2021? What are the SEO disadvantages compared to TLD PBNs?

What are the techniques you used to give some authority to web 2.0 network.

And, what are the other SEO techniques that I can used to build more backlinks.


I posted this same thred on Black Hat SEO thread, and nobody replied.

web 2.0 is becoming more difficult to index these days. your best bet is TLD. you have total control over it. worse thing is that you build out your pbn on web 2.0, you nurture it, maintain it, make it stronger, and suddenly it gets deleted. you are shit out of luck then. stick with tld as PBN. you can use web 2.0 in parallel for diversity.

Web 2.0s have 0 authority. They don't rank when compared to PBNs. You need quality links whether you buy them or build them yourself. Based on your description, it looks like your competitors are building spam links with spun content. You can beat them if you build quality links with quality content.

You need understand the both type of links impact

Web 2.0
Impact => Low
Spam Risk => Low

Owned PBN (TLD)
Impact => High
Spam Risk => High

If You buy pbn links from others

Third Party PBN (TLD)
Impact => Medium
Risk => High


Good strategy is combine both type of links & diversify link profile to reduce spam risk.

Web 2.0 is always better because it is more safe.

but is it worth something? Some web2.0 can get you traffic but not because of SEO and indexed backlinks, but just people on those web2.0 finding the links and maybe clicking, and that really depends if u have an audience or not.

Majority of sites charge to publish a guest post.

If you competitors have crappy spun backlinks, then you need to find better links.

A good PBN will cost you $thousands and that's often just for the domains.

You don't 'own' these sites, even if you register them.

I had trouble ranking for anything with slightly higher competition using web 2.0 network. And that was back in the day, can't image now.

However, since you are on the budget, go for it. Start with lower competition keywords. You can even power it up with tier 2 links they should take it (don't spam them too much).
