When tiered link building worked like a charm, I dominated the SERPs for a quite difficult niche. Semi slow link building could make my pages last for 6-12 months (10 new domains linking in per day on average). Now, it seems like you only have two options depending on strategy: 1. Slow and steady link building in order to stay on top for a long time. 2. Fast, churn'n'burn, in order to stay for a couple of weeks. I'm doing pretty well as far as 1. is concerned, but I would like to know how the Churn'n'Burn bad boys do it in order to achieve 2. as a complement. I always rank top when there're no black hat sites in the SERPs but that is only 1 week out of 12 on average so a mix would be good I started a Black Hat GSA project a week ago approximately, pretty sloppy with multi targeted keywords, no real quality, just focus on quantity. This was what I achieved in terms of new linking domains (ahrefs.com) 29 dec - 14 domains 30 dec - 13 domains 31 dec - 19 domains 1 jan - 31 domains 2 jan - 49 domains 3 jan - 37 domains 4 jan - 17 domains Whereas the bad boys in the niche have the following: Site 1: 30 dec - 27 domains 31 dec - 53 domains 1 jan - 137 domains 2 jan - 177 domains 3 jan - 124 domains 4 jan - 103 domains Site 2: 18 dec - 59 domains 19 dec - 48 domains 21 dec - 94 domains 22 dec - 124 domains 26 dec - 252 domains 27 dec - 99 domains 28 dec - 102 domains 29 dec - 41 domains 30 dec - 53 domains 31 dec - 51 domains 1 jan - 86 domains 2 jan - 84 domains 3 jan - 64 domains 4 jan - 31 domains My question is of course how you think they do it. I would also be interested in outsourcing this job so if someone can achieve something similar, I gladly pay for it as I spend most time on White Hat jobs nowadays. PM me in that case.
