    Hello guys, this my first case study on BHW testing parasite pages. Let's get to the results:

    Storify - Did a page of 500+ word content targeting commercial keyword with 5,400 exact local searches a month.

    Ordered 100 blog posts from Fiverr, was a mistake!
    A month later built 50 private blog posts from my own network and used SocialAdr for some social love.

    Here's the results:
    Screen Shot 2015-05-18 at 00.53.31.png

    Currently ranking #3 with the main keyword. Around $150 profit so far. Earned my investments back.

    Have a few other Storify pages under testing, will update you soon.

    Academia.edu - Uploaded a paper with unique content targeting commercial term with 8100 US searches.

    Ordered 300 private blog posts from BHW. Spun network.
    Added some social love.
    Added 50 unique private blog posts from my own network.

    Here's the results:
    Screen Shot 2015-05-18 at 01.04.18.png

    Currently ranking #6 with the main keyword. This one haven't made me any money yet. CTR is horrible.

    Followed the similar strategy with Twitter page, Google site, Facebook fan page, Wix, Benzinga. They didn't work out for me. I also tested SAPE links on some of the pages. This also doesn't seem to work as it used to be. Looks like SAPE is slowly dying. I have an account there and most of the sites have become fake ones.

    If you have any questions please let me know. Will update this thread with new results soon :)

    Regards,
    Rait

    Thanks for sharing the results, Storify seems to be doing pretty well in other test results I've read.

    Thanks for sharing the results. So storify ranks well with PBNs? Worth giving it a try.

    Did you use adsense on storify to earn $150? or something else?

    So you used amazon links on that. Isn't that's against amazon TOS?

    Here's an update of one of my other Storify page:
    Screen Shot 2015-05-18 at 05.04.06.png
    2900 US searches.
    Currently at #22

    The only SEO i did was 50 private blog posts dripfeeding over one month. Used lot's of longtail anchors.

    This one is potential money maker. 40 clicks 8 sales this month. $25 profit.

    Such initiatives are adding real value to BHW not only because you point people to the right direction, but also because people who are just starting with IM can see that making money is not so difficult as it may seem. They only have to read a lot.

    I tried benzinga and for some reason I struggled to rank my posts there for any decent keyword.
    storify and rebelmouse seem to work better... go figure why :(

    OP, great case study.

    Thanks for mention the web2.0 Storify. How did you managed to find this? I'm too will be starting my venture into ranking parasite. just a tip OP, you gotta spam harder bro. 5 bucks for 50 post from Fiverr is a rip off. You could have gotten hundreds of thousand and thousands and complete pyramid link built for 5 bucks. Should have contacted those indian seo experts on fiverr. They always over delivery :D

    I find parasites using SEMRush statistics. If the site has lot's of stable or rising ranking positions then it's worth to try.

    I noticed web 2.0s that are inner pages are hard to rank, for example FB pages.

    FB pages are 100% hit or miss, no matter how good the links are they just simply wont rank sometimes and this seems to happen to most if not all inner page web 2.0s

    Subdomain web 2.0s act more like normal domains and are not unpredictable.

    This is what I noticed over 3+ months of testing web 2.0s
