    Hey Guy's,

    First off let me start by saying I'm a Newbie using GSA SER but I thought I had this down. lol Here was my plan.. I build a bunch of Web 2.0's on the High Authority sites like I've been reading about. I posted a few articles, two of which had links. One link to authority domain (Wiki) on one article and another article with one link to money site. These are my Tier 1 sites, starting to build Tier 2 properties now. Now the FUN begins...

    So now I do the following: I get GSA with a good list and I start blasting the Web 2.0's. After the first couple of days ahrefs is showing that there are about 1.5k backlinks from 300+ ref domains etc... My money site starts ranking immediately for those terms... they are very very low ranking search terms. Anything should be able to rank these right?

    Now I read NOT to send that many links per day to these Web 2.0 sites... doesn't look natural etc.. So I cleaned my list for PR3+ only sites and I only index the (DO) Follow links. On top of that I'm only sending 60 or so links to the Web 2.0's per day. Now my results have gone from "Not So Good" to "No Results at All" !!!

    The second I stopped sending all the GSA SER links and dropped it down to only 60+/- Links a day my rankings dropped like a Rock!!!

    What the Heck am I doing Wrong? Should I continue blasting? Check out the Crappy keywords below... anything should be able to rank these right?

    I keep reading contradicting info on how to run these campaigns so I'm a little lost here.

    Is it to early to see what is really happening? Thoughts please..

    Man it's not like I even ranked well for these things ever... I have dozens of keywords exactly like this!!

    Can someone please help here?

    Thanks for any help in advance... :)



    Sorry it wont let me post the screen shots because I'm still a Newbie on the Forum!!!

    1 - Breathe and relax. This is blackhat SEO, you are going to have lots of WTF situations so get used to it.

    2. It could be the Google dance

    3. It could be that your links were indexed then not indexed.

    4. It could be too much volume

    5. It could be not enough volume

    You are just going to have to keep testing and take it one day at a time.

    Good luck

    your problem is with the 60 +/- links. That's not the setting for "confirmed links", but submissions. And depending on your list and other settings the amount of submits that will turn into confirmed links varies wildly

    Can you share any info on how to exactly do that? I have GScraper that right now I'm using basically just to clean (use only high PR) the lists I get.

    Thanks

    I having GSA post until it gets 60+/- 15 Verified per day... Is that not enough to send to a web 2.0?

    I'm not sure of anything Bro... I just want to make sure I'm not screwing things up. Like they say I'm only sure of "Death and Taxes", maybe I just have the Newbie jitters.

    First if you used gsa for tier 1 web 2.0 check if they are alive, second if you made many we 2.0 with GSA then blast them, there is no point going 60 something a day, because if you made a lot of web 2.0 and used spinned content, they will get deleted, so your best bet is to blast these links until they get deleted and start over. Slow and steady link building is meant for hand built tier 1

    Will doing this over and over again hurt my money site or just burn the web 2.0 sites?

    Using shared GSA lists is always risky, I use these type of lists are only on tier 3/4. IMO I think it is just a Big G dance, wait for some days to see if it appears back to its position, I wish you best of luck.

    the first thing I would do is check that your web 2's are even indexed in google, you'd be surprised nowadays.

    You might be sending a 60 links daily to pages that are not indexed and have no way of passing juice to your money site. It sound crazy but check that first.

    If that checks out it could be simple math

    High link velocity to web 2's and you see a rise, you cut that link velocity by 80% and you see a drop.

    If u dont want to hammer those web 2's too much go build some different web 2's and hammer those like you did the first batch and then slowly drop those down to 60 a day also...see if that gives you a bump

    It may and it may not, I have done it, I can't say if doing only this will hurt because I never use only web 2.0, but sometimes you get slapped. If you want authority and long running web sites you should use hand written content for tier 1 that is readable, because if you use spinned content you're never safe, because the web 2.0 might be deleted and you have to start over again

    Can your Tier 1 sites actually be related niche sites that sell for example Amazon products as an affiliate. These would be real sites... Would this be a waste because of all the link juice going out to Amazon because of the products? Or do you run the risk of having your Amazon affiliate being pulled by Amazon. Any thoughts on that?

    I guess it's all about Testing and Waiting... Testing and more Testing. Can we usually see these moves within a couple of months for testing purposes?

    Getting many links doesn't mean to get ranked.
    What I could recommend is:

    1. Create manually links almost 300 links in high pr websites and use strategies such as Press Release, Image, video, article, audio, logo submissions etc. (pm me for the list of manual links)
    2. Do Tier 2 on these links, but please use real content name images for manual link building. Tier 2 should be done using these strategies from GSA SER (Article, social network, bookmark & wiki)
    3. Do Link building using GSA tools which you have daily maximum 150 links and index them using good indexing services like (onehoureindexing, or instant linkindexer etc)

    Check the rankings :)
    I think this will help mostly it depends on market and keyword ranges. Note calculate correctly the keyword density and usage of them during link building. Use main keyword in Manual link building and partial 40%+ natural 40% +brand 10% + main 10% >>> during link building using automated softwares
