    A few days ago I considered makeing a BST of this method, but personally for me the cut was too low and to much manual work involved, so I skipped it. But I did several test runs on this. Now you can get the results and rinse and repeat.

    Local Exact Searches: 2,900
    Results for this keyword in Quotes: 4,520,000
    Results for this keyword without Quotes: 388,000,000

    (Additionally it is a SEO relevant term and a hot topic at the moment.)

    Target Site: Freshly published blogpost, optimized for the keyword. The whole domain never got any backlinking, but is related for that keyword. It has been published on 2012/02/26 and I waited with the start until it got indexed one day later and has been on
    Initially rankend on Spot #164

    Step1: I researched for dropped domains that have age, indexed pages and backlinks. Main factor has been that they should contain parts of my keyword combination or synonyms / relevant words (in this example seo or internet marketing, one was also with social network in it).

    Step2: I ordered a set of 5 LSI articles from ContentYogi (no I am not affiliated, but he gave me the articles for the test run at the time I wanted to make a BST of it and we were looking for a JV) for that keyword.

    Then I posted them to the new domains, each on a several host, with its own design, and with rich media content in the postings. I think it would be even more powerful when you throw up some simple HTML sites for the articles, but I was too lazy for that.

    Step3: Now I spreaded a random amount of tweets, likes, diggs, +1s to all the postings (but not the money site)

    Step4: I built for each blog posting a linkwheel. Each property contains three links. 1 to the blog post, 1 to the money site and 1 to the next property. I left the wheels open. Here I used relevant keywords, synonyms, the actual keyword itself and generic stuff like the domain or click here to read more about (Keyword). Those wheels have been really chaotic.

    Step5: I sent 300 Social Bookmarks to blog posts and the site itself . Again: Here I used relevant keywords, synonyms, the actual keyword itself and generic stuff like the domain or click here to read more about (Keyword).

    Step6: I used Sanjays 5K Trackback comments and 5k Forum Posts from High PR Forums spread over the linkwheels with relevant keywords, synonyms, the actual keyword itself and generic stuff like the domain or click here to read more about (Keyword).

    Then I waited.:yawn:

    And waited.


    And today I was totally surprised when I checked the rankings, as I almost own the first site!

    First Results after 9 days:

    Blogpost Ranks:

    Post1: Not in top100 ( I was dumb and added that to network additionally to earn credits, before that it has been on #21)

    Post2: #11

    Post3: #10

    Post4: #5

    Post5: #3 (!!)

    Targeted Site: #13

    (Results for search without quotes)

    I will keep you updated & hope that helps to improve or create your own blog network strategy.

    Post1, Post2, Post3, Post4, Post 5 are all domains (new websites)? Or they are just postings on your blog. I didn't understand very well because my english is sick

    Thanks

    So you build a mini blog network with dropped domains to rank for a 2700 exact search keyword, uh oh wait 2900 searches :confused: This number of competing pages doesn't mean shit btw.

    Anyway, there is nothing unique about building a network of own sites to rank the main money site.

    Well, for long term, it's not a good way. Dropped domains will lose their pr and you need a lot of work to get them back. Why not just use ALN and spend time for other work??

    I don't understand why you felt the need to create a rather silly sensationalist title about blog networks being dead.

    Of course they're not dead, they'll never be dead. A blog network is just a bunch of your own sites that you juice up and use as backlinks. As long as backlinks are responsible for ranking sites, blog networks will always be alive and well.

    Additionally, what makes this really bizarre is that you go on to describe a link wheel. Link wheels ARE dead. Link wheels are easy for Google to detect as a greedy network and subsequently devalue.


    The whole thing is a bit weird. I especially find it weird the way you link out to someone's BST and someone elses site.

    If I were a betting man I would say you're either friends with them, or you've offered to create this to drum them up business in exchange for a free copy.

    It just doesn't smell right to me.

    2,900 might be not the tightest competion, but it is a fighted seo keyword indeed. The search volume might not be much, but it is relevant traffic for a niche in this market - we are not talking about an aff site or a MNS.

    PR? Who talked about PR? I dont mind it, when it has good, if not good too. I do care about the link profile and the domain pop when I buy an expired.

    I just want to test things out and this seems to work very well. I link to the other BSTs because I want to do a great seller a favour. We did not JV, but he does not want to take money from me, which I find very kind.

    This is not the usual link wheel think. This is a link wheel used as second tier in a process and the title is relevant if you read about all the threads here in BHW.

    Damn, you really don't get it. Do you know that feeling if somebody comes to you, laughs and you know he just did not get it because of his own low-minded life?

    2,900 exact searches for a keyword. This tells you that an average amount of 2,000 people are searching for this keyword per month. Period. This might be important if you try to push your shitty MNS site with affiliate crap, but that is not my game. Imagine you have a client that is selling Yachts for example. There might not be many people searching for "buy yacht", but those who do will let you bank if you get found. Additionally you competition knows about the internet, too (wow - yes people are talking about that thing called internet) and recognize how important a good position is, not to mention the affiliate and "niche sites for rent" competition crap. So a keyword with 2,900 exacts can get hard, too my friend because the amount of searches has nothing to do if a particular keyword is hard or not (of course the higher the search volume the higher is THE CHANCE the keyword is hard to crack).

    Thank you Dr. Wisenheimer - you are another reason for not to share any methods anymore.Gobshite.

    Agreed, people that laugh at small amount of searches are idiots. They can't realize if your keyword banks it doesn't need a lot of searches.

    Oh and I just wanted to drop some words abput the blame I would be payed or somewhat for posting the BST thread in OP. I am guerilla marketer, yes thats right. And that would be a way not to do it and the first rule is not do it in forums where others of my kind are.

    Content Yogi provided me free articles for this test run and as I told him that I wont start a BST he did not want my money as I told him I would pay for them. So I wanted do him a favour. Same for virtual08 aka Sanjay from scrapebox blast.

    Just for the records...

    Btw: My mini net is still scattered over pages 1 and 2 (I think the social proof from the tweets and likes has done very well) and my main site is sitting now on #9 (from nowhere).

    digging out this thread for an update after long time. the experiment did not went well: the satelite blogs with the lsi content and the social signals are all on page one, the money site is on page three. working now to get it with more direct links with lsi anchors also to first page, that would let me "own" six first page spots. will update once goal is reached.
