I've been working on ways to make my PBN sites stronger. Like unique ways of getting content done faster and faster. Which I'm getting pretty good at. But I've also been reading that quite a few guys backlink their networks. Which is something I've largely neglected up until now. So when I thought about doing it today, my brain completely locked up. This is exactly how my thoughts went... I have lots of huge, extremely well done spintax's I've put together over the years. Several that have never been used. The spun articles come out highly unique and readable and some are good for thousands of articles (they're HUGE). So why not set up some restrictive campaigns in GSA and try boosting my network with contextual links? The problem is, the facts. Here are the facts: These are expired domains I bought on here. They have very clean, virgin like backlink profiles and fairly good metrics. Problem - I'm in an isolated niche so when I registered them I "forced relevancy" by posting relevant & unique (non-spun) articles about my niche. These sites have no blog comments, no web2.0, no pdf links... or any type of GSA links. Like 95% of the links are straight from .coms. So naturally I'm thinking about doing some restrictive, contextual GSA links. My goal is long term rankings here, no churn & burn shit. So I would do it as slow and natural as possible. Here is the problem: EVEN IF I don't use GSA (I wanna see what other marketers say).... I'm still confused as hell about >>>anchor text. Many of the links on these sites are 5+ years old. Since I forced relevancy the anchor text isn't relevant to the content anymore. Let me clarify. The primary anchor text for most the sites is branded anchor text. So in that regard the primary anchor text is still relevant to the sites. But there is still non-branded anchor text. And by "forcing relevancy" to the anchor text.... or building any new types of links..... I'm gonna wind up with 2 completely different sets of anchor text. Which leaves me with 2 questions. 1) [General Question] Does anyone use GSA to boost their network sites? 2) What do I do about the new anchor text? Common sense says, "make it relevant to the new content". But common sense also says, "you're gonna confuse the shit out of Google". Any feedback on this would be highly appreciated.
