    And till now, all the backlinks you acquired (from crowdo, rhinorank and ranking results) don't have any tier 2 links?

    I see you write 2-3 articles each day. How are you able to research and come up with so many topics each day? Do you do this full-time?

    Nope, I dont really do tiered linkbuilding anymore.

    I do this full time and I write about niches that I am interest in or are already my hobbies. I have been growing my knowledge in them for years so it cuts down on the research time.

    Hey Shaun,

    Thanks for answering my question. In regards to link building, do you buy links and/or have a link building strategy for each post to have it move up in the serps or just wait for it to rank naturally?

    Income is from my full money site network.​
    • Article 1 - 1847 Words.
    • Checked my Pinterest analytics and impressions are starting to climb up steadily so hoping it continues, traffic from Pinterest is around 15 right now where traffic from Google is only about 4 for this new project.
    • My main project seems to have seen a little climb in its SERP ranks so I think that the last few days of falling was just the Google dance more than anything to worry about.
    • So I started planning the 30 videos in 30 days project for YouTube for next month and it initially started as just general videos but its starting to come together as more of a video guide to blogging than just random videos. It's going to take a bunch of time to do it well so I am planning on pushing it to July and making it a 31 videos in 31 days project so I have more time to plan it out and get it as I want it. I am considering deleting the content of my personal blog and rebranding it to help with the YouTube side of things too as I dont really use the GSA toolkit anymore. I am planning on keeping the higher potential Quora posts for once I have rebranded my blog as I can actually check it with my analytics for my own domains rather than YouTube pages to see the traffic it pulls.
    Yea I pay agents to do the link building for me, this is my reply from a while back going over it.

    I'm migrating to AAWP today, and the site is still very fast A 100%, 1 sec or less with loading Amazon images through the API. So AAWP is not supposed to slow the site down too much.
    Whereas recommendation ads slowed it down considerably, so I removed them, they didn't bring me too much anyway.
    Hope AAWP works for me.
    I already had API access, since my account is very old.
    Also, AFAIK, to keep having access to API orders should go through the links generated by the API, with at least 3 orders through the API per month, and as many as you can to get more API calls (they are limited by Amazon).

    • Article 1 - 1500 Words - Outsourced.
    • Article 2 - 2208 Words.
    • Article 3 - 1505 Words.
    • Had another writer complete their job today and say they are going back to their regular job, expecting this to continue as more places re-open.
    • Sold my bitcoin and used the cash to order 3 x niche edit test links from MisterF and WebMinati to test their service as I am hearing nothing but bad things about RhinoRank right now so I am looking to move my niche edits to another service provider.
    • Planning to spend tomorrow publishing answers on Quora again to see if I can get traffic to my YouTube project.

    • Article 1 - 1003 Words - Outsourced.
    • A writer missed their deadline with zero comms from them so I think they might have went back to their regular job and stopped writing. I think this is the 5th or 6th writer to do this over the last few days as more and more people go back to work. Going to look at other options for outsourcing content over the coming week.
    • The guest post order from the start of the month has been delivered, DA 56, DA 53, and DA 66 all with solid predicted keyword counts ranking in Google and >10,000 predicted monthly organic search. Heres my review of the service in the sales thread.

    Cheers dude.

    Cheers dude, just seen people saying the quality has gone down, there were a few people saying it in this thread a week or so back.

    • No content out today, with so many freelancer writers going back to work I have basically spent the day looking at reviews of other writing agencies and trying to find more freelancers. Sent three jobs out on iWriter, I had a writer referred to me on Upwork and I will send her a job when she replies to my messages and I have uploaded a few test articles to buyselltext to see how it goes. I think I am at a stage where I rather just pay more and not have to waste time chasing writers up or having them flake on me now. If iwriter or buyselltext goes well I will probably just pay their rates rather than use Upwork.

    Cheers dude :).

    Have you had any fluctuations in rankings today?
    I had regained all my rankings and traffic after the update over last weekend, the update ended two days ago, everything was going well, and today I had a sharp fall of some keywords, with absolutely irrelevant results or Pinterest taking the top spots. Some keywords are still fine, but I lost a couple of my biggest ones.:weep:

    How much did you earn this month? Looks like you are at 200-300$/ day. You might hit 5k/month soon and I'm very happy for you and hope I will catch up soon.

    Cheers dude, on track for around $7000 this month, I know the screenshot above says 1st-21st but the onelink dashboard hasn't actually updated for last night yet so there is just over another $200 to be added to the count above this month so far.

    Yea, there's some good info from another user on Pinterest a few pages back where he goes into what he is doing and answering some questions and stuff too.
