    Hello,

    It has been difficult in a way to understand how to go by building backlinks, reading and researching all around there are tons of pages saying same the same thing, and some that goes the opposite way of what the last page said.

    A few weeks back I found this great website that explains alot by JacobKing and MatthewWoodward, but they use paid software such as Scrapebox which It great and I haven't been able to find a good alternative.

    Somewhat from this image I can understand the base of tiered link building, but from so little information that I could find, it's a little hard to understand everything.

    So if anybody could answer a few questions that I have to clear up some confusion it would be greatly appreciated.

    1) Is it worth doing tiered link building manually, without using GSA and other tools used by these SEO "experts".

    2) Are there any free tools to accomplish what scrapebox does without the commenting part, just the google scrapping with pagerank checker, domain outbound weight, etcetera..

    3) If I were to follow this image below, I'd create TIER 1 with everything above PageRank 2+, then create TIER 2, that links back to TIER 1, and so on.. how many tiers should be created over the course of one week as in is there a limit? (considering the fact that you'd need to do blog comments, guestbooks and stuff of the such which would take forever.. )

    What is the way to backlink building? I apologize for this question once again, it's just completely confusing with outdated sources all over.

    Yes it is worth creating tier 1 links manually (web2.0), but there is no point of working manually on other low tiers if you can do it with software such as GSA, Magic Submitter etc..

    For ex: In manual work, you go to the site link, register and submit the content/link and same you can do this with software.

    NOTE: I wouldn't suggest you to use software for first tier.


    2) Are there any free tools to accomplish what scrapebox does without the commenting part, just the google scrapping with pagerank checker, domain outbound weight, etcetera..
    I've seen a software a long ago namely "Comment Kahuna" that does the blog commenting work, but doesn't have much features as SB.

    3) If I were to follow this image below, I'd create TIER 1 with everything above PageRank 2+, then create TIER 2, that links back to TIER 1, and so on.. how many tiers should be created over the course of one week as in is there a limit?

    No anyone can answer it, it depends on your niche and how hard is your keywords competition. Keep doing your work until you reach at your goal.

    I am on same page.

    So here is what I understand:

    Tier 1 --> consists of Web 2.0 (done manually, preferably while using something like HMA VPN)
    Tier 2 --> also consists of Web 2.0 + Article directories but can be created with software if available.

    Blog commenting, trackbacks, guest books can be created to any tier (except money site) also using software if available.

    Is that accurate?

    Also do we create those automated links to web 2.0 property's homepage or post that contains link to our money site?

    Thanks!

    I don't see the point in doing a tiered-linkbuilding strategy without SEO tools.

    The whole basis of that system is to leverage the software to build a shit-ton of links to send juice to your tier 1 properties.

    If you're going to not have access to tools and are going to be building stuff manually, why not just build good links and not even use a tiered system?

    Create a really good website with good content and then look for authoritative sites in your niche and see if they will link to you or let you guest post etc. Your rankings will be a lot better this way, and probably come quicker/safer to boot.

    If you're going to be doing all this manually anyway, why not just build good stuff and forget tiered linking, which is a 2nd rate strategy anyway.

    Well social media is one of the channels you should be focusing on. You can get organic links from your social relationships, plus the social signals are most valuable these days. Focus on social on on link building. Just my 2 cents.

    Tier 1 is the "clean" stuff, ie the manual web 2.0s you build that have good original content (not spun). You don't need to use HMA VPN if you're building these by hand.

    Tier 2 consists of basically all the "crappier links" you send to these web 2.0 properties you built for your tier 1. You use software like GSA, Scrapebox, Xrumer, Senuke etc. for this tier. This tier can consists of any sort of property including web 2.0s, blog comments, forum profiles, social bookmarks, article directories or whatever types of links you can build in massive amounts.

    The links are built to whatever URL where the article that has your link is. So it can be either the homepage or post, but generally these are the same url anyway.

    Im staying away from tiered linkbuilding for a while, Im guessing the next google update will target this as in their opinion tiered link building is getting out of control. Again this is my own speculation so tier build away but dont put all your eggs in the same basket.

    If they penalize tiered links, everyone just builds tiered link to their favorite competitor....

    Gyuman, thanks for detailed answer. I started this adventure just yesterday, someone here gave me a link to a blog post that suggested to use HMA VPN for "not leaving footprints". Although I don't completely understand what footprints I would leave by creating clean quality blogs from my home IP I listened to his advice and got VPN package.

    I have several white hat sites, two of them have decent traffic but I want to test things out a bit and see if I can take them to the next level.

    Thanks again.

    Remove articles and directories as tier 1, the rest is fine.

    No different then how people used to build links via blog comments directly to their money site, now competitors build these links to negative seo their competitors.

    That's exactly right. And anyone looking to stay safe should just dock the bullets, cuz SEO has become a loose canon under google's monopoly.

    The big four factors for ranking remain 1) low SEO competition (LSC) keywords, 2) quality organic backlinks, 3) social media signals and 4) links with good page authority and domain authority. Link tiers and wheels still work as a quick way to build a backweb for a farm of sites you may be working on, but it may be best to cloak the links in redirects and point them to 301's for safety.

    There are a lot of free bots (or bots shared on BHW) that can be used in a system to build backlinks or conduct blasts to tier 2/3 properties with, so not using SEO tools can merely mean not paying for SEO tools to help in one's backlinking.
