    Tried Lord Google but was not able to find what I needed, so I'm hoping you folks can help. What are the definitions of Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3 as used in SEO? I see a lot of references to them, but I have not been able to find their meanings.

    Thank you so much!

    Tier 1 = Pages that have links pointing DIRECTLY to your money site

    Tier 2 = Pages that have links pointing to your TIER 1 pages.

    Tier 3 = Pages that have links pointing to your TIER 2 pages.

    Tier 4....Etc....

    That's it. Nothing too complicated.

    Funny that, when you Google "what is tier 1 in seo" you get another BHW thread that explains the exact thing.

    Clearly didn't even bother searching did we?

    This has actually been shared, I forwarded it right to the part in the video where he explains the answer to your question. I would suggest you watch all of his videos. http://youtu.be/KyFsK8bu7g8?t=1m11s

    Strange you did not find what you wanted on Google. In simple terms, its layered backlinking whereby you build links to your links. Moneysite <-- Tier1<--Tier2<--Tier3

    I think the OP made an endeavour to do some research, but I believe the OP may have felt inundated by threads like the thread you were talking about. When I was new to Internet marketing, I was also looking for a clear and concise definition to tiered links. Instead of getting a simple definition like the one conrulez gave, I was given explanations such as:

    This is not a newbie-friendly definition of tiered links. This is a definition of tiered links by an Internet marketer, for an Internet marketer. Everything I changed to green font in that post would leave a newbie even more bewildered than before and cause them to either skim through the post or skip it entirely. I don't know if people who post like that are doing it to be ostentatious or if they're doing it by accident (it can be difficult to assess someone's skill level in Internet marketing. For example, they could be proficient in PPC but not know much about local SEO). Either way, I try to follow this quote when giving advice to new members of the forum and people new to Internet marketing:

    Google it link wheel process, search in Google images, you can find n number of images about Tire 1, 2 and 3. Simple and straight answer given by Conrulez (Thanks Conrulez). First try to understand the process, it will be very easy to start the process

    Thank you, Zwielicht. You hit the nail on the head. Some of the explanations are enough to make one's head explode. :eek:

    I appreciate everyone's input here. I've been looking at the suggested videos for quite a while now. Thank you again.

    simple, straight forward and meaningful "tier SEO" explanation we can get around.
