    In the past month i have had several people ask me how to build tier 1 and tier 2 etc. etc. I keep such things to myself but their has been too much crap about tiered linking lately. The pros don't tell anyone about what to do and the newbs stick to softwares and their money site and ask what am i doing wrong? (and let's not forget the on going fight about spun content blah blah long term blah blah theories about authority). Also the stupid affiliates who don't know crap about ranking but make these tutorials about how to rank and how to build tiered links.

    I will just tell you that in past i used to rank my movie sites above original brands (like 2 years back) and have also ranked for keywords like "buy backlinks" , "seo company" (top 3). But i had to give that up because half my staff was from freelancer and they never completed anything in time. My focus shifted to applications and i enjoy that now.

    Something that still works :

    Answer one question to yourself - Can you beat amazon for keyword amazon ?

    Answer - Yes. IMO google does not have a keyword url combo that someone who types amazon should see that site at top but it's just that the "top 100 sites on keyword amazon link to amazon.com"

    But let's be real and not logical - You would need millions of links to your website to beat them.

    Case Study 1 : Pokemon video website

    I had adsense on my site then. The original website had 50,000 links to it (2 years back). My website only had 64 and still i was at top

    Case study 2 : Dragon ball z videos

    Original website had 11,000 links to it but mine had only 82 and still i was ranking on top (adsense like $300-$400 per day on both websites)

    Recent Studies : Have ranked lose weight fast, get ripped and few others

    I have 12 niche sites making me money from health to entertainment. I do only seo - none of that social is this that crap.

    One line definition of what google wants :

    " Your backlinks should be natural, should have authority, and should be niche relevant"

    What i give them :

    Your backlinks should be natural - I build tier 1 links from guest posts, blog posts, web 20s (yup they will always work) etc. etc. (basically different hosting, geo-location etc.)

    should have authority - Ofcourse - High PA, DA and authority.

    should be niche relevant - I buy links from niche relevant blog sites only (they are costly but work very well)

    What i give them as a blackhatter

    Nothing special - I just rank my tier 1 links in top 100 and my website ranks on top 10 automatically :)

    The basic guide to rank high no matter what keyword you target is :

    " Your tier 1 links should always have the main keyword in their title, original content and should be lengthy + informative. Now all you need to do is rank these posts (guest posts or blog posts or web 20s) in top 100 and see the magic"

    Recent case study about "weight loss" website

    1) I bought 20 guest posts from someone (not here on bhw)

    2) All guest posts had the main keyword in title

    3) I loaded up magic submitter and build few campaigns to these posts (please confirm with your providers if backlinking is allowed or not). Then the usual GSA campaign to these MS links indexing etc. etc.

    In 2 weeks my website was in top 80 and 5-6 posts were in top 100. After 4 weeks all posts were in top 80 and my website was in top 30. 7 weeks of constant MS + GSA my guest posts were in top 50 and my site was 5th rank on page one.

    Now i am enjoying rank 1 (beating medicine, web md, wikihow etc. for that keyword). I have 65 guest posts from different providers and 53 are in top 100.

    Have you ever wondered why blog comments, profile links etc. just never help your website rank? Why is it that contextual links always succeed over everything else? Why is it that google can find footprint among your backlinks? With this strat it's almost as safe as it gets in the game. Yes i have suffered blows of penguin and panda but not that big. Especially if i rank for medical keywords without much spam under 60 days.

    Notes :

    1) This is easy rank system and can be used with Amazon, youtube, clickbank, CPA etc. etc.

    2) Tier 1 links are supposed to have authority (rank high themselves) be niche relevant (ofcourse lol) and authority (back them up with more links)

    3) Never waste too much energy trying to game Google. It's very easy.

    4) I have successful records of over 56 websites in top 5 since July 2013. 10 of them were built in Dec 2013. This shit works.

    5) I never use anchor text or keyword links :). I link on 3 things : whole title, naked url and main domain without extension like if site is bhw.com then bhw.

    Tiered link building always works provided you understand the meaning of word tier 1. I myself never ask my clients or users to link directly to their website using spun content. Save it for lower tiers.

    So in short : "Build 20-30 contextual links to your websites and rank them in top 100. Guest posts and blog posts are fantastic but if you are not making that much money stick to web 20s"

    Any questions do not PM me. It's irritating. Ask here and i will help you.

    P.S. Do not try for keyword amazon. Let's keep thing Real. Your websites can still go down but who cares - just build another one.
    P.P.S. No "OP is idiot" thing please. Try and keep it professional for everybody.

    I do not buy much things from here. Recently i bought a service from a mod here. It's a private blog network. But i think most of the providers can give you what you need. 10 posts cost like $100. More than enough to test it. But i doubt anyone would allow you to spam them :)

    Thanks very much. I will be creating a thread soon about another study but with all real info and details. Keep reading bh seo section of BHW :)

    No problems. I understand the frustration. Everybody wants to charge something for their knowledge.

    so your T1 is guestpost/web2.0 (if new) then your T2 is Magic Submitter stuff (what exactly does this contain, never used it before) and then your T3 is a GSA campaign, which backlinks do you build in that ?

    Hey, OP.

    Nice post! I understand that you're using (and prefer) only unique content on your T1 links, but have you tried using spun content at least once?
    I have no experience with spun content whatsoever so I can't argue if it is or isn't worth it, but I think SEs don't mind it.
    I think they can tell if it is for example relevant, duplicated, how long it is, ..., but I can't imagine they will recognize if it's spun.
    But again - It is just my opinion with no proof.

    @gamingseo - Do you know about senuke or ultimate demon? Magic submitter is just like that. It builds web 20s, platform links etc. It's just a little too buggy for average person. But you can use it. They have paid trial but if you have any other such tool use it.

    1) I build web 20s (like tumblr, weebly wordpress etc.) and other contextual backlinks

    2) From GSA i avoid things like blog comments, profile links etc. Only use backlinks where the page only links to my site and have some text from my niche so bookmarks, web 20s, social networks etc.

    Regards,

    Ofcourse i have. I have tried tools directly to my site. They do rank but somehow every 2nd-3rd month they get stuck and then start falling in serps. I mean you eventually wait atleast 40-50 days to rank then why not use something which works? Also spun content can rank but not in top 10 because eventually visitors decide which ones stay at top.

    If visit bounce rate is too high then that page is gone. Since this strat is all about top ranks i keep spun content for lower tiers.

    It's all about testing and once you have found what works for you, scale the hell out of it. :)

    You have shared some good piece of info here

    How do you build your web2.0 ? do you fill them with content or just a single post does the job ?
    In case you fill it with content, do you keep it niche related or you just fill it with whatever comes to your mind ?

    Nice read. I have few questions:

    1. Do you blast the guestposts 1 link at a time? I mean 1 guestpost 1 blast?

    2. You Using ms for tier 1 right? What types of links you blast for them?

    3. What kind of articles you using for tier 1 and tier 2? Do you even go up to tier 3?

    So you rank the first tier for the same keyword you are after for your website? Right?

    Solid post James- I've been doing almost the very same thing with the added love of 301's..
    Very powerful and results don't lie. I like the way you stay away from socials as do I- never seen any evidence personally that it does anything.

    Never really filled them up with multiple posts but if you can afford then you should. Multiple posts per web 20 link to the page which links to your website or just single post to my site.

    1) No multiple links to each guest post at one time and all guest posts get links. So like 10-15 web 20s per guest post to all guest posts and then increase

    2) Tier 1 are guest posts and blog posts so ms is tier 2 and GSA is tier 3 :). This is why it gets tricky to understand.

    3) Read point 2 above. Tier 1 links are original content from guest posts and blog posts. Also for lower tiers i use my tool (signature).

    yup but don't think they will outrank you. I have myself seen some guest posts from PR 5 outranking my website but eventually as more guest posts point to my site the main website comes on top.

    Ahh 301's never tried them personally. There are so many different things which come to my mind like hosting, spam penalty etc. etc. But i see how good your strat is really. Also i always hated that hyped up selling of something. Social is new seo so buy likes, tweets etc. etc. That is pure selling crap (unless ofcourse all signals are real)

    Appreciate! I have some confusion and here they goes..
    1. What do you mean by blog post? Is this social networks blogs/blogs on drupal/joomla platforms or anything else?
    2. " I link on 3 things : whole title...." How to create link to title?
    3. What keywords/anchors to use in T2 ?
    4. What is the content source for T2?

    1) No platform posts. You know regular blog posts which you buy from someone offering service? Like if i have a wordpress website and sell link on it? So these are controlled by people and links stay for very long which is a good thing for your website.

    2) I meant if my page is "how to lose weight from your thighs" and i am targeting keyword "weight loss from thighs" then i would link to my page with these anchor texts - naked urls, domain name and "how to lose weight from your thighs". So all my anchor texts are non-keyword. By title i meant the whole title of my money site as my anchor text.

    3) General words (click ehre etc.) + main keywords + naked urls etc.

    4) scraped and Spun but highly spun like paragraph + words (20-30 paras in single para spintax all spun on word level)
