So, I just created 30 min of HQ niche related video content. Time for a break - and practise my written English a bit... As usual, I spear you the lengthy blabla (cause I dont get payed and "likes" for that like seogurubloggers do). I thought, hell, like everything BH I did in the past was working (https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/3...-link-blasts-pbn-posts-social-signals.899966/ and https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/case-study-link-pyramid-to-fiverr-gig.905160/ ) for lowcomp keywords (for ya KBjockies here, everything around 20-30 KWdiff kwfinder) to move them up some places or even to #1. why not try EXPIRED web2.0!!! so, how do heck do I get them? I did not take the usual route here scraping with scrapebox.. I used ahrefs (cant tell you the secret sauce now, k?).. it does take some while. so would no be for most of u lazy glorious basterds . so, I got me like a bunch, I guess 10, ran them to different sites, different niches, different pages and shit.. stuff like RD20, UR15-25, some even with social signals !! in this test, I used "clean" web2s, and some definetly spammed web2s with the usual GSA SER blast on them.. as time passed, I got some data. how I created them: scraped some expired blogs. registered them I wrote a REAL 250w article for it. did not care for spelling errors or grammar. but it was a real article with some value. popped a EM anchor into it to target url. waited for 1 week to see movement (which happend!!!), and will report back in 4 weeks to see if rankings solidified. I make it short: IT WORKS thats, btw the reason I spend approx 5-10h per week to find those and analzyse data. some stats. sporting site: #3>1 for 1word KW "somesportequipmentplural" https://gyazo.com/fc21de96923770e220368f3dc8dc7a4a web2 created 21. january, UR11, RD12. (nothing special, just average intresting here, the singular form did not move a bit hardwareniche #18-20>11 in 6 days. kw "somefancycomputerhardware" https://gyazo.com/7753e8afbea57f56d67ff6d0fcc90ab5 web 2, UR17, RD14. interesting here: target site does NOT HAVE CONTENT, just title, heading + embed video. ->but, If I have time, I will write a lenghty article to prove you DONT NEED CONTENT to rank shit... (but it is better to have ...) outdourstuff: highly competitive kw! seems "easy", but 3-10 is ranked full of online shops. and ya got 3 pages full of ads (dudes know those basic "how easy is it" signals") - I spare you the techinal stats know.. this one shot from #3-5 to #2 (cant get higher cause #1 is my other site... so much for "ya cant rank two sites" sciencestuff -did not help move ranking for article - I guess in this case google decided to show up some alternative page cause it seems more related.. k.. you get it. I finish here. my cats want to play.. more data will come in next days. but I imagine, it will be the same ... I did this with approx 10 or 15 freeblogs.
