    Hi Guys,

    I didn't know much abuout web 2.0 Buffers,but somebody offered this service to me said to me this.

    "Web2 blog are most authority links we use on tier1, it helps to improve your rankings and visibility as well. We can provide social signals and press release as well. Web2 buffers are like PBN, you can add content, image video what ever you want. And then you can build tons of links around them, so your main website will be 100% safe."

    I want to ask is this safe?

    Thanks,
    Imran

    Web2.0s are one of the safest tier1 links. But this depends on how you use this. There service here that offer web2.0s with spun/spin articles, to me, that is not safe for a long term project.

    I like them with unique handwritten content, with other pages/videos. Yes, this type is OK for a money site.

    I think it might be safe in terms of algorithmic penalty, but if you want to survive manual review you need to very very careful with what you doing for your seo.

    Web 2.0s are definitely safe as your tier1 links if they are of high quality and properly created.

    A popular T1, yes. Safe? I'd hardly say that, it highly depends on what web2.0s and how they are made, as well as HOW MANY you use. If all your T1 links are web2.0 do you think thats safe? Truth is they aren't "safe" or "dangerous" because it all depends on other factors. The only T1 that I would ever feel comfortable calling "safe" would be an earned authority link from a site like the NY Times. And even then you can spam it into the ground if you're dumb with your T2.

    Others know more than me but I don't see how they'd be safe if you got a manual review, high quality or not. How many legit sites have a load of web 2.0s with 1 link pointing to them? Or even if you add a couple of extra random outbound links, would still surely look blatantly obvious to be link building to a google employee whos sole job is to look for people building links

    Yes, it's safe but also depends on how we build it. If the web2.0's filled with 2 or more unique articles and relevant images/videos then it will look more natural, and also it will boost your main site authority when further backlinked.

    It depends on the content you use.

    Web 2.0 buffers can be safe if you use DECENT (not superb) QUALITY content on them.

    If you are going to fill them with spun junk, you might be in trouble with Google sooner rather than later.

    Web 2.0 are safe when done properly. BUT EACH Backlink is safe when done properly and in the right mix!

    The good thing with WEB2.0 is that there are part of a very high authority domain, so yes, u can go very wild with T2 Links.

    As the others say, there is no big risk. But if you point several hundreds web 2.0 links to a fresh site in a few days it might trigger some unwanted attention. Go slow and use quality content for a long term result.

    Web 2.0 buffers are very safe if done properly. Though having a web 2.0 buffer between your site and backlinks dilutes the effect of backlinks a bit.
    So you can point high quality links directly to your money site and add web 2.0 buffer for low quality links.

    Of course, It's really safe and right way to get backlinks but also you should have unique and high quality content and just publishing one content on Web 2.0 to just get backlink won't help.

    Thanks.

    Yes, web 2.0 links as tier 1 are safe. You need to have good content posted on the web 2.0 buffer sites so that you don't look as a spammer making shitty web 2.0 links by blasting different web 2.0 sites.

    The only thing that is safe is doing nothing.

    As with anything, look for quality and use common sense. If someone offers you 4 million web 2.0's with unique content for $4, then you will probably want to be a little suspicious of the effect it would have on your main site.
