    I seem to get my properties and back links indexed pretty much immediately using link indexing services. I haven't bothered too much with tier 2 stuff. Does tier 2 really benefit that much ? Assuming your throwing cheap cost effective links at tier two, will it really pass any link juice to the money site?

    Tier links are the bases where the links pointing to your money site
    get or start getting PR otherwise those PR0 pages by theirselves
    are nonsense.

    Tiers are great, allows you to build up link juice, and the best thing about blasting your first tier is you can spam the hell out of it iwth no worries, if somethign happens to it, who cares? its just a web2.0 or other first tier link

    If I'm going to spend money, I want it pointed to my money site. I only use free stuff to build links to my links.

    Tier 1 links are the most important to me. Tier 2 are around 50% less important to me, but still important. I usually send some high pr wiki links or some social bookmarks and lindexed them for tier 2's.

    But does pointing low quality spam links (affordable) such as blog comments, social book marks and wikis actually give your web 2.0 enough PR to then pass to your money site? Seems unlikely unless you point blog networks or something at the web 2.0s which isn't that cost effective it seems.

    To me it's more important to keep 2nd tier content fresh and updated with internal links from the authority site by tagging and adding images. It can provdide great traffic and link juice - much more than external spam.

    I don't get 1 point:
    -If it is not effective to blast your money site with thousands of spamny non-valuable links, then why is it effective to boost the Authority of those Tier 1 links anyhow?

    Tier 2 links help boost the PR of your Tier 1 links which means in the long run they'll be stronger :)

    On top of that it just appears a little more natural

    Usually these websites have a bit more authority than your own website so it's not near as fishy

    Tier 2 links are still important for your money sites, how? These tier 2 links passes some link juice to tier 1 that increase the PR and authority of tier 1 link. If tier 1 get more value, it automatically boost your money site value also.

    But you can build tier 2 links are also have some PR; if you build tier 2 links in PR 0 or N/A means it will not help anymore to your tier 2 links. In long-term process these tier type links are more valuable and stable forever to your money site.

    These tier 2 links are consider as spammy links that you mentioned here, so you don't try to directly links to your money site that may be affect your money site. If you build these in tier 1 means it may be affect the value of tier 1 not to your money site.

    Yeah it's correct. You can spend your money for build high quality links in Tier 1 that directly point to your money site. Then build tier 2 links for your tier 1 links with free of stuffs. It will definitely help to get your money site on top positions in SEs.
