    I've had this blueprint spinning in my head for a while inspired by Jacob King's post on broken link pyramids. I'd just like to see what BHW thinks of what I've come up with, and whether you guys can come up with any refinements/improvements.

    Tier 1


    Meat and Potatoes (Exact Anchors)
    40-50 Web 2.0 Properties, 5 articles with images and videos each on big sites using FCS Networker, high authority domains like Weebly, Tumblr, Blogspot, etc. Updated with one article a month linking towards a content post.
    25 PR2+ Homepage links from personal PBN, more as the size of my network increases


    Fluff (Branding, Direct traffic, Anchor Diversity, etc)

    Guest Posting
    Social Media Profiles (Twitter, FB, Pinterest, etc)
    Monthly Press Release
    Paid business directories
    PR3+ Social Bookmarks
    Content marketing with answer sites, infographic doc sharing, videos, and forums (outsource this work to VA).

    Tier 2 (to web 2.0s)
    Mass blog post service (YAFBPS, etc) - ~50 posts per web 2.0
    GSA PR2+ <200 OBL Contextual Links to tier 1 Web 2.0s (Wikis, Articles, Social Networks, Web 2.0s)
    NHSEO PR1+ <500 OBL Noncontextual Links (Trackbacks, Blog Comments, Guestbooks etc)

    Tier 3

    GSA full throttle to tier 2 contextual links with filters of PR0+ and <1000 OBL

    Anchors
    10% main keywords, 20% money keywords, 40% brand variations, 10% generic, 20% raw url variations, exact match anchors will be mostly on contextual links.

    Onsite will follow phpbuilt's guidelines

    Looks good overall. I don't do tier 3 anymore.

    PHP built's guidelines have serious flaws. ie not using categories. My Categories rank on Google and bring me traffic.

    His gripe was that categories as they are inadvertently introduce duplicate content. I've replaced the category permalinks on most of my sites with silo'd landing pages :)

    I'm working on something really really similar. I'm gonna be investing some decent money into HQ content, VA for building web 2.0's and PBN. My backlinks strategy is kinda similar.

    It's my first time building an authority site as well... Hope we are on the right path!

    Good luck!

    I've got two planned ahead, and two built so far. One is almost totally built now following this blueprint but it's been sort of cockblocked by payday loans 2.0 and stuck on the fourth page for the main 74k m/s keyword. The other got penalized when I went a little too crazy with tier 2 links (or at least I think that was it).

    I'm planning to do something like what you're going to do.. but I'm a bit confused because my site is like an "ecommerce" and I have different products and I don't know if I should do all this SEO work in each product page (domain.com/product-one.html).

    Anyways, good luck man, it looks great!!

    eCommerce seo is a bitch, but i've managed to do it for a friend before. Go out of the way to attach a blog to your site, it'll make your life much, much easier

    Yea, I mean all I sent to my penalized authority were Web 2.0s, Press Release links, High PR manual blog comments, and High PR manual bookmarks. I kind of went ham on the links I funneled through the web 2.0s though

    They're related to your site/content?

    General niche and niche-related ones where I can get them, my criteria is (PR * 10) + CF + TF + PA + DA > 90 and that's it

    Changed the noncontextual filter for Tier 2 to PR3+ OBL <100, also kind of feel silly for including OBL in the contextual links once I realized you create an entirely new page for those links.
    Also added an unfiltered 4th tier for the third tier contextuals

    I'm probably going to do 30% Raw URL, 10% generics, 60% Longtails for the second tier and 100% longtails for the third and fourth tier.

    Your tier 1 links looks good, you can also send some social signals (retweets, FB shares etc) to your money site.

    Feel free to use my service for building links to your tier 1 web 2.0.

    n category garner me pageviews/traffic. No need to replace category pages just make sure you are using excerpts not full posts on those pages. that's it.
