    I'm sorry for my ugly handwriting,if there's something you don't understand please don't hesitate to ask.

    With this strategy I have noticed some great jump in SERPS on Affected and Non-Affected websites by Penguin Update

    Please note that all the sites had this diagram I wrote about it here,done already

    Below are some pictures of Rankings





    None Affected Website

    Affected Website
    Edit: The blast was done for the second keyword only

    So,now that you saw another working strategy from me,let's write the backlink resume

    30+ High Quallity Web 2.0s with 3 Pages on each of them
    High Quallity Spunned content,using a method I think it's preatty rare.(I'm not going to discuss more about this,so please don't ask.You can use unique hand writen content insteed)
    Each Page contains a niche related image and a youtube Video
    The backlink is placed in contextual mode on the homepage and 3rd article

    Second Tier
    900 Wiki Pages created using the same content method
    Each Wiki Page haves only 1 backlink with anchor text like click here,read more,article source etc
    No Related keywords to the main sites

    400 Article directory pages with HQ Spunned Content
    Each Article Directory contains 1 link with a random anchor text
    No Related keywords to the main site


    If you have any questions,just ask.

    How are you linking in the web 2.0's? In only one of the three posts? Do you link only to your index page or inner's/random sites as well?

    Wait, so you don't do any blog commenting? What about Tier 2 Web 2.0's with spun content? Do you add links to the Web 2.0's right away or do you wait a little bit? Do you use keyword anchor texts for tier 1 -- or mixture with "click here" etc? Do you use any keyword anchor texts for Tier 2 etc (to link to the Web 2.0's)? Are you not building any other variety of backlinks to the money site AT all? Like perhaps some high PR wiki, .edu or blog comments?

    Thanks for the share, with all the tools I own I should be able to do this.

    How long did you span the linking building campaign for?
    How many different "Money" keywords did you target when the links pointed to your money site? 2-3,5?
    Is your web 2.0 content readable? I know you said it's spun but does HQ to you mean it's related content OR related and readable so it would stand up to non-auto approve directories and possible web 2.0 reviews?

    So in the end you recovered your penguin update affected websites with just 30 quality links? How you been able to replicate this on more penguin slapped sites? What was the competiotion ( average pr of top10 ) and exact monthly searches?

    Congratulation on beating the penguin, unfortunately I was unsuccesful with my affected websites...

    More importantly what is the anchor text diversification pointed towards the money site?

    I noticed that you are using SERPFox, congrats on that! Love that ranking tracker...

    Finally, I'd like to see the long term rankings of this. As you know, Google's been rolling out updates to the algorithm regularly and I'm seeing a lot of fluctuations like this in a variety of different niches.

    I have a few questions when you say "No Related keywords to the main site" Do you mean that you just dont use related anchor text for the links to web2.0s or that the articles used in the tier 2 wikis/article directories are not related to your main site?

    Also how did you make the article directory links? Did you use AMR or diffrent software or was it a service you puchased

    Also did you use raw urls to backlink your web 2.0s?

    Nice guide,I'd assume you use varied,related keywords from web 2.0 like samsung tv ,1080 samsung tv to money site.Then random from the lower tiers to web 2.0's and videos.Loopline has the sweetest trick for this with scrapebox enter your keyword and run keyword scraper with just google suggest to get a list of related keywords and sort as required.
    It's a solid strategy the video and images help alot.

    Honestly, I have always believed in the increasing power of web 2.0, this is really a primary link strategy for clients. I def need to start adding video and pictures to them as well though. How do you approach the keywords from web 2.0 to money site?

    Well, I add custom spintax to insert random images and videos while I create web 2.0s with Magic submitter...I guess my strategy would work better if I added more contnet... :)

    Hi, thanks for sharing

    So, would u please explain a bit more on the following two sentences?? Sorry, but i just bit confused

    So, on each web2.0, do u mean u post 3 articles? so, that is 90 articles in total for 30 web2.0??
    Or u mean u only post one article for each web2.0, then anchor link to 3 pages of ur money site, right??
    and also, please explain the second sentence as well
    thanks a lot in advance!

    I have a question or two.

    Whats the p box pointing to your web 2.0's?

    How competitive is the KWs your after. Also you'd sporting a emd or you doing an aged domain or something else?

    You building web 2.0's bye Hand again? Humanizing and all that? Also are they the same 10 web2.0's or are you using 30 different web2.0's?

    How long are you phasing these out? You creating 30 web 2.0's then spanking out your wikis then your article directories all in the same day?

    Last question, is this your sole way of linking said site or you doing other things?

    Dont get me wrong like your guides. This one is interesting and makes sense. Just feel its lacking a little bit.

    Rep thou bro keep em coming!!

    Mate i notice in your rank tracking results you're geo targeting uk and denmark i think?! I don't think it's down to the the results of your backlinking efforts that you've risen in serps post penguin.

    I have 5 sites in same niche all with same backlink profile and the 2 that are geo targeting google.co.uk have risen after penguin update and the rest targeting .com have all tanked. And i wouldn't even mind but the anchor text diversity on the one's targeting uk = 0 with one being a one page site!

    The two targeting google.co.uk are also EMD's so IMO google is going easier on the geo targeted sites, and probably especially the EMDs because they guess there is more chance of a site being a legitimate business since it's only targeting a local area.

    Just my 2 cents anyway but im seriously thinking of concentrating on only high local search volume geo targeting sites from now on.

    Byd way i didn't use any link wheels, link pyramids or web 2.0's on the two surviving sites, only quality high pr liinks

    Very nice guide. I'm going to implement this and see if I get a positive result. By the way, what's the "P" stands for under the web 2.0?

    I think he means the "P" are these pages. 3 Pages on each of them for each web 2.0.

    Couldn't you have just said web 2.0 pyramids worked for me? And probably one of the other threads?
    I don't know what's ground breaking about this? Or am I missing something?

    I think the "P"'s are profile links.

    I think the "P" denotes 3 INDIVIDUAL PAGES for that particular Web 2.0 Property/Site as mentioned by acotut.

    30+ High Quallity Web 2.0s with 3 Pages on each of them

    Best Regards.
