    Hey guys,

    I've been doing some research and I see posts from people like Matthew Woodward and Jacob King that are great. And they usually show their Tier 1 diagrams with 3 different links such as a Web 2.0, Wiki, Social Bookmark, Article submission and so on. Jacob King had an article saying not to use Social Bookmarks though, i found it a little confusing as to why so I'll have to revisit the article.

    Do you agree with him?

    What are your favourite types of links for tier 1? And do you spam Tier 2 or do a clean Tier 2 and spam Tier 3?

    I notice a lot of guys ranking low competition sites using just 1 web 2.0 as Tier 1 and it looks like they are spamming a lot on their Tier 2.

    A great way to think about it is Tier 1 should be power properties.

    Create 1 at a time, and then shove lots of slightly lower quality stuff at it, then blast those links. Then create as many as needed to get to #1.

    Also diverse links is better than 2 or 3 types.

    Always have quality powerful backlinks from high PR DA blog post and guest post as your T1. Diversify your link building campaign to get good SERP. Try web 2.0, social bookmarking and other submission services as your T2.

    Op! Use T1 and T2 manually, and blast T3 with GSA -- Use T1 links as power links (Like, blog posts, web 2.0 site, article directories) -- T2 links for fast indexing like social book marketing sites.

    So article directories are recommended for Tier1?

    Which sites would you recommend?

    Thanks guys. So does a new web 2.0 property carry some juice already, or basically none until you link to it?

    I don't really know which article directories to use, so any tips there would be awesome. Also what about Wiki's? Are they harder to find for Tier 1?

    I want to get GSA and learn it soon so I can actually blast the Tier 3. Maybe until then I could buy blasts for my Tier 3?

    I use web 2 blogs + press releases for tier 1 and blog networks posts + contextual social network posts for tier 2.

    It really depends on how you long you plan to be in it for. I like to do all manual/quality all the time. I think it is a matter of time before Google catches onto tiered link pyramids that have spam links at the higher tiers. Web2.0 and guest posts to tier 1 are great for me. I will often throw some social bookmarks and signals at them for indexing/power. Everything is fine in moderation as long as it is unique, quality content (unless the domain is penalized).

    I do like to avoid links that could potentially become detrimental in the future. Ie. Blog comments, forum posts, guestbook, etc. If there could potentially be 1000 dildo website links on the page in the future then I will not try for the link.

    I've had my fair share of luck and profit with quick ranking strategies but it is really disheartening when you finally get the unnatural links notice.
