feeling like an idiot because i cant count... speaking of pyramid linking, people talk about tier 1,2,3,..etc. i understand that tiers are meant for strength of links. however if you focus on the link strength, you sacrifice the quantity. a youtube thread talks about 7000 backlinks using pyramid. that would need thousands of pyramids? if so, that would be very costly. what i understand is: e.g., 10 tier 1 linking to money site, 10 tier 2 links go to each tier 1. i would end up with just 10 backlinks to my money site (even though i build a total of 100 links). to get 7000 backlinks, i will need 700 pyramids. what i dont understand: fiverr gig - 1 pyramid gives me 300 links, with only 20 web2.0 in tier 1? whats going on? can someone explain?
