Well well, I have been sharing in the JR VIP section (You JR VIP's, you may want to check the section out, as I personally know I gave away my EASIEST ranking method that made me a good amount of money) and was thinking of what other cool stuff I could share. Well, after Berkay shared his method for ranking easy KWs, and I made a guide on how to rank easy KWs already, I decided to dig deeper on how I did SEO before I had money or a PBN to invest into SEO. So, although the methods may be alike other methods you have read, I decided to explain how I did things, exactly, step by boring step. This is a fast cash method using Web 2.0s. This methods works on Medium KWs. I have not tried it on hard or high competition KWs. When I was a noob I thought the KWs I used this on were Easy. Most were Medium competition. Domain was about a month old when I started to spam this method to great success. Guess what? It still works! Step One: Aged / Expired Web 2.0s Contextual links are the foundation of ranking. Even before google smacked other link types, contextual links always did the best. Just like I always preach, my first course of action when I started was to buy scrapebox and start reclaiming web 2.0s. It was not talked about back then. You really could not buy them like you can now, only Tumblrs were really sold. This is step one, a good small network of Web 2.0s with existing back links. If you do not have money, you can go ahead and make new ones. That is fine. The only problem is new ones tend to get taken down quicker using this method. Web 2.0s act as a Parasite and help things rank easier. What I did with these Web 2.0s is I put an offer on them. Made them into a landing page. Some Web 2.0s, such as Weebly, allow you to add text boxes, images, tables, etc. This allows for you to very easily create a nice landing page. Types of offers which convert well? Clickbank is not the best way. The best way was always my own product or an affiliate link not in click bank. Click bank, although it is great, takes knowing new and upcoming products to get a good ROI. They also can be spammed to death already in most niches which can hurt conversions, so I do not suggest it for a newbie. You can use this as a SEO pyramid and the Web 2.0 would be your tier one. I have done it both ways to great success. Step Two: Diverse 301 URL Shorteners I hope by now you know where I am going with this. Some 301 URL Shorteners allow you to put your KW in a custom title, which I advise. The 301s I use are: Bitly Tiny URL Tiny CC Goo.gl Cutt.us I build two of each URL shortener I am using and want about twenty when all is said and done. Step Three: More 301 URL Shorteners By now you have about 20 URL Shorteners. You then want to build about 20 URL Shortener links to each. You can use a bulk shortener service such as: https://www.hostingkingdom.com/blog/bitly-bulk-url-shortener-tool/ http://301.dripapps.com/ http://cutt.us/smarts/ So tier one / money site is a Web 2.0 Tier two is a set of twenty 301s Tier three is a set of about four hundred 301s Step Four: Spam the S*** out of them. Here is the good part for you budget SEO's. First you get a list of all KWs you may rank for including Long Tails and LSI. I put anchor ratio at 40% Money KW, 30% LSI / Long Tail and 30% Naked URL. How do I blast them? When I was on a real tight budget I would use: 1. Xrummer Blast from BHW 2. Scrapebox Blast from Fiverr 3. Social Book Mark Blast from BHW / Fiverr 4. GSA Blast from anywhere How many links do you want? I always wanted at least 10,000 links. Step Five: Tips and Tricks Well, I need to make this guide different than the other guides, so I will explain a bit and give my tips. First of all, expired Web 2.0s or Aged Web 2.0s take a beating better than most other Parasites so that is why I use them. If you are making a NEW Web 2.0 you NEED to make a Wordpress. Why? Wordpress has a built in 301 shortener in there Web 2.0s. It is a 301 shortener and looks as natural as fresh snow. It also saves you a LOT of work when building the 301 shortener links yourself. Social Bookmarks and signals should be the first thing you use 301s for. Why? When a real company posts on social media or create a bookmark, they use a shortened URL. Go to facebook or twitter and you will see the vast majority of companies use a shortener. No one will ever think your 301 is spam when 99% of real companies are sending social bookmarks to the 301s. I went over that point a bit in my 'how to rank for newbies' guide, but I need to stress it again. Make the 301 look legit. Bookmarks and Social Signals are an easy way to do this and they work. What can you rank with these simple pyramids? As I said, medium comp and below. So, for under $10 bucks and some hard work, you can rank a KW. Step Six: Using this with other Methods I do not want to steal any ones thunder, as this method has been shared recently. Why make my own post? To explain how I use this in combination with other link building methods (Which is how this method can help more advanced guys). I use 301 shorteners to my PBN and blast social signals and bookmarks to my website. I use 301 shorteners to spam my PBN and money site links on social media to get new pages indexed. I use this exact method to pump up every Web 2.0 property I buy on BHW. I use this method to pump up many PBN posts I buy on and off BHW. I use this method to pump up every Guest Post I earn or purchase. No one will ever bat an eye at a couple different and unique URL shortener links pointing at there website. I never would. Especially when I use them myself for social sharing. You can easily power an existing link or earned link up without risking anything. In my experience, when using this for Guest Posts, it works best to use a 301 commonly used on social media. The two most popular I have seen are bitly and googl. This is in part due to tracking abilities and the capacity to have a custom URL. So if you are going to blast a Guest Post, I suggest you go with one of those. 301 shorteners do not get as much love as they should for being very useful and versatile in SEO.
