    Hi Im new to this forum.

    Google checks backlink diversity. This term refers to the overall view of your backlinks and considers a wide range of link attributes including the linking page types, content types, domain names, IP address, anchor usage, PR, degree of relevancy, follow/nofollow, and more.

    linking page type is only one of these factors, so you can easily meet all the others.

    If you think about it, articles, blogs, directory, and social bookmarking are all a similar niche. They are all user posted information websites. Basically all just websites that are controlled by users and moderators.

    Google probably picks up a similar / same type of website between blogs and social bookmarking, and most likely picks up the same for articles and directories (also pretty much the same thing for everything except length.

    Do you think just blogs and directories will do the job?

    They are the only/best 2 types of backlinks that will provide you with a high pr backlinks.


    Whats your input on this?

    I know most big companies use mostly blogs.

    I've been doing only web 2.0 and blog posts for some of my newer sites and they seem to be doing well. I stopped using wiki's, article directories because they seem to be platforms that are commonly spammed. I think if you are using different platforms of blogs (real websites, custom web 2.0, elgg, etc.) you should be fine in terms of diversity. I've only been doing trying this new style for a few months so I can't say for sure, but so far my sites are holding strong (stronger than the ones with lots of diversity -> wikis, bookmarks, articles, web 2.0, profiles, etc.)

    I also feel like my backlink profile is less spammy this way. And if google is looking for the "average" black hat seo footprints, they won't find it from me.

    totally depends on your competition. I have ranked sites with just one or two blog posts (but these keywords usually enter the serps on page 1-2 anyway). If your comp. is high enough that it needs 100's of backlinks, then I would diversify as it looks more natural.

    Blog's and Web 2.0's are user generated content. But in some niches the dominant authority sites use blogging software, I can think of a couple authority sites in my niche which utilize various blogging solutions. Diversity includes; domains, server IP's, anchor text diversity and type of site. You would be best off if you could diversify all of these, personal I concentrate mainly on domain diversity.
