    I first found about this method a couple of months back after coming across this.

    Anybody who has worked with AWS before can figure this method out in 5 minutes.

    First of all, let's get a glimpse of what you'll be able to achieve once you're done reading this.
    [​IMG]

    The URL will be something like https://s3.amazonaws.com/xyz/keyword.html

    You can either use this as a parasite or simply for a backlink. Whatever floats your boat. If you don't know what a parasite is, check out this amazing guide by @710fla

    It's also quite easy to index these kinds of pages, just use 'Request Indexing' after adding to the Search Console.

    When I figured this out, I thought I'll offer this as a service on BHW but I figured I'll be too busy with college till May 19' and after that, I'll be working on starting my own SEO Agency. So here's how you do this.

    Firstly, make an account on AWS and add your credit card information. This should be pretty easy to achieve.

    After logging into your account navigate to S3
    [​IMG]

    You should see something like this
    [​IMG]

    Click on '+Create Bucket' button and use the following settings
    [​IMG]

    The name of the bucket is important, use your primary keyword here. Also, make sure to select N. Virginia as the region or you'll end up with a domain with lesser authority.

    Now, hit next two times and use the following settings
    [​IMG]
    Keep hitting next and finish creating your bucket.

    Next, click on your bucket once and hit 'Permissions'
    [​IMG]

    You'll end up on this page, click 'Access Control List'
    [​IMG]

    Scroll down and click on the highlighted portion as shown
    [​IMG]

    After doing this, copy the following settings and hit 'Save'
    [​IMG]

    If you are seeing this, you've done everything correctly as of now
    [​IMG]

    Now, you need a static HTML page, you can get by either coding it yourself or hiring someone to do it for you. You can also use some plugin which converts WP to static code (haven't tried this though).

    Once you have this, you need to upload these files.

    First, go to the 'Overview' tab and hit the 'Upload' button, then, upload all the necessary files for you static web page
    [​IMG]

    Hit 'Next' and again, copy my settings (lol)
    [​IMG]

    Hit 'Upload' and your files will be uploaded. If you see this kind of screen then you're doing everything correctly
    [​IMG]

    That's it you're done. Here is the webpage:http://s3.amazonaws.com/enter-your-keyword-here/index.html

    You can get really creative with this method, in my college internet access is restricted by disabling certain domains like youtube by the administrator. I used this as a reference (XD) for one of my exams as AWS wasn't banned lol.

    https://s3.amazonaws.com/cajunb/important.pdf

    This means that you can even create PDF backlinks using this. If you have a unique idea using this method, I'd love to hear it from you in this thread.

    As I said, you can add this in the Search Console and index it within hours. Just upload the verification file as well.

    I hope this helped you, if you run into some troubles, please don't PM me, post it in the thread instead.

    It's a really good guide you write but the method is fairly old news, Google seem to have got on top of this in 2018.

    Other parasites will give you a stronger result, like Github wiki pages.

    I like this method because I can create a custom Schema for my parasite.

    True, but if Google are filtering out the people who take advantage of the platform (like it seems they are from ahrefs) then that's a waste of time.

    The things that rank well on S3 seem to be pages that are iframed into other sites and PDFs. I can export and share the keywords/urls if you want?

    I'm not knocking your method, this is a good thread.

    You're most welcome, people~

    Crap, I only searched the Junior VIP forum to see if this was shared before, however, with my method you can get a better subdomain. :anyway:

    Just go to Google Search Console and click 'Add Property' after that enter the URL https://s3.amazonaws.com/enter-your-keyword-here/

    Then when it asks you to verify, choose the download file option and upload that file on S3 the same way as described in the method.

    You can also go the extra mile and purchase a domain name and point it to the s3 bucket.

    I have most of my new sites on s3 because its cheap. Depending on your content, a large html with css site will cost less than $2 a month on s3.

    I know wordpress is the bees knees tho.

    That sort of defeats the purpose of a parasite. The reason you'd want to use the AWS domain is that you'll be able to leverage the authority and spam the shit out of it without getting penalized.
    You're welcome, mate.

    I'll be 100% transparent with you. I believe to have something known as 'Shiny Object Syndrome', which kind of sucks because I tend to start new ventures and abandon them quickly. This is the reason why I'm only focusing 100% of my efforts towards client SEO and one of my affiliate websites.

    The only progress I've made on an S3 parasite is getting it indexed and using a little bit of RankerX on that. I started my affiliate site after that lol.

    It's being spammed to death. Looks like it's PDF paradise though.
