    I have read many articles where people don't even use Tier 2 linking. I understand that Tier 1 links point to your money sites and Tier 2's point to the site or links that point to your money sites.

    What are some good Tier 2 linking strategies that you use? Are Tier 2's necessary? I have been looking and can't find any good services that provide ONLY Tier 2's.

    It depends whether they are important or not. If your tier 1 links are strong enough, they you do not need tier 2 links. If your tier 1 links do not have any links , then building some links for them are important.

    What if you are using an expired domain in a PBN to link to your money site? Should you build Tier 2's to that domain if it already has good TF and CF, DA etc?

    PBN links are strong enough, so you wouldn't need a tier 2 in my opinion & testing. Web 2.0's on the other hand can in most cases use a tier 2.

    Fresh web 2.0s need tiers to make them strong, on the other hand expired web2.0 and PBN don't need any because they are strong by themselves because they already have links pointing to them.

    GSA, RankerX/Turbo Web2.0/FCS are good for Tier 2 as also many others. These two are good for a start. As for whether they are necessary, then no they are not necessary if you use expired stuff. But they would definitely help in increasing the power of Tier 1.

    You should buy or make PBN links and point them to your money site, then you won't have to make tier 2 links. I made the mistake of trying to rank with web 2.0s and tier 2/3 backlinks. I ranked pretty high but the links haven't busted me to the first page

    If You Need To Get TF And CF To Your Tier 1 Then You Have To Build Tier 2

    If you wanna increase the value for the backlink you build, Just do add links to it. If you add proper and relevant links then it gives proper value. So tier 2 is good when you build non spammy links to it to be honest.

    You can do GSA + web2.0 network for tier2 - just plain old tier2 contextual links, tier3 everything else.

    I understand that the general consensus is that PBN links don't need an extra push, i disagree with that consensus, do think you should power-up your PBN domains with a strong tier two, making your PBN links even stronger in time, i always give my PBN domains a portion of tiered links, like i would do with a "normal" moneysite, but then again my PBN sites are not only promoted but they also build to look as real moneysite.

    So yeah i would advice to give your PBN links some extra tiered power, it can never hurt :)

    Tier 2 links are not very important for your site. But you can create tier 2 links for better traffic. You can use any paid services for doing this.

    What if the PBN has DA 10 or less?

    You will probably need Tier 2 links if you create a fresh Web 2.0 as your Tier 1 link.
