    A solid link building strategy is key for reaching SEO success. There are many different approaches, Can we discuss together?

    I will share an overview of my approach:

    * Tier 1: (MANUAL - I always do Tier 1 as manually and RankerX) + Expired domains/PBNs
    - Web 2.0 blogs:
    • I post the 20 re-written article in 20 web 2.0 websites(blogspot, weebly, Medium, tumblr.com, wordpress.com, livejournal.com, wix.com, fc2.com, tripod.com, angelfire.com, jimdo.com, ning.com, wikidot.com, over-blog.com, unblog.fr, edublog.org, hatenablog.com, jigsy.com, webnode, webs.com, canalblog.com).
    • Target 2-3 different keywords in an article.
    • Insert 2 Pictures/youtube video embed in an article.

    - Web 2.0 Profile:
    find relevant .gov and .edu sites, high quality websites
    • I post the a written article in a Web 2.0 Profile site

    - Document - PDF:
    • Create Article in Word/PDF files , Insert 1 HYPERLINK in the Article.
    • Post it in Document Sharing websites(scribd.com, slideshare.net, issuu.com,docstoc.com, en.calameo.com, authorstream.com, mediafire.com, zippyshare.com, adrive.com, fliiby.com, sharesend.com).
    • Use different Title, Keywords, Description.

    - Video:
    • Post it to YouTube and vimeo sharing websites
    • Use different Title, Keywords, Description

    - Social Sharing:

    • Google +1 - 5/day
    • Twitter Retweet - 10/day
    • Facebook Share - 10 articles/day
    • Pinterest Image sharing - 10 images/day
    • Instagram Image sharing - 10 images/day
    • YouTube - Likes, views, subscribers - 10 difference Channel related to my content

    - Comment
    • Google+ shares
    • Twitter Re-tweets
    • Social Bookmarking
    • YouTube Comment

    * Tier 2 (I use Ranker X - GSA) :


    - Use Spun content(WordAI , The Best Spinner, SEO Kontent Machine)
    - Use 1 link in the article.
    - Post it in Social Networking/Bookmarking sites(premium sites, BuddyPress, Elgg, Phpfox, Jcow)

    * Tier 3 (I use GSA - Scrapebox):

    - Use Spun content.(Auto Spun)
    - Use 1 link in the article
    - Post it in Blogs comment, Forum, Guestbook, Web 2.0 Profile sites


    *** Anchor Text ratio
    Naked URL's - 20%
    Branded Anchors (brand name, Phrase,..) - 70%
    Generic Anchors (any generic word) - 5%
    Partial Match/LSI Anchors - 3%
    Exact Anchors - 2%


    I hope this will help.

    anyone else stops reading such threads the moment web 20 is mentioned as tier 1? lol. It feels like someone tried ranking a keyword so easy that a tweet would rank for it.

    Cut everything out except the PBN part. Do what matters first and don't waste your time with salting the meal which doesn't exist yet.

    What did you mean by having "link building 2015" tag for thread named "Link building strategies for 2017"?

    Sorry of the wrong wording. I meant these posts are manually spun, quality one.

    For each tier
    Tier 1: I use unique articles (I hire a VA)
    Tier 2: I use SEO Kontent Machine, WordAI/The best Spinner service
    Tier 3: I also use SEO Kontent Machine, WordAI/The best Spinner service

    typo

    I share what works for me and those stuff are based on my experience. So just like anything else, take my opinions with consideration. Web 2.0 (well it is incorrect term people use lol) still works well for me and my SEO clients. It brings lots of diversity to the table. My Web 2.0 properties look very natural (I manually check the accounts and add stuff to them after creating accounts on auto pilot). My Web 2.0s are content rich not thin, one-post blogs. I do the content curation from lots of feeds to my Web 2.0. Once my Web 2.0s are indexed. I keep maintaining them for a long time just like a PBN blog so they age well

    This is what I wanted to wrote exactly. But more like 2013 - 14.

    However, the web 2.0s as tier 1 are not a problem, those are still fine as foundation. Rest is... you know.

    how do you post on web 2.0 profile - document (PDF) and Video ? - do you use RankerX

    Also you stated web2.0 you create on auto-pilot - you use some tool like AutoFillMagic

    It's all the same as years before. Only thing you need is more unique content, slower speed, more content overall and that's basically it.

    What would you 2 recommend for tier 1 links? I thought web 2.0's would still do the trick.

    They might, for some very easy keywords.

    Apart of that, guest posts and PBNs. Only two things still having shittons of firepower.

    Nah. Web 2.0 as tier 1 won't help you to to take a top spot of SERP. @Nargil said it perfectly. It may help you for low competition keyword.

    You need niche relevant guest post links and high authority domain PBN links as tier 1.

    I've actually ranked some decent keywords with buyer intent 1-4K MS using web2.0's alone, if you nurture them for months as if they're your little babies without abusing them too hard they can become quite beautiful

    Web 2.0 work fine if you treat them like a money site. I rank plenty of client websites using web 2.0 and pointing cheap PBN links at them. Obviously having good PBN links direct to the website also helps.

    - Yes. But I only select quality websites (Web 2.0, Web 2.0 Profile, PDF) and manually built Tier1 properties High DA backlinks as blogspot, weebly, wix,... to boost my website. Video sharing sites, I will manually create accounts, management and post links.
    - No, I don't use AutoFillMagic. I will auto-create accounts at these premium sites in RX(tumblr, wordpress, edublogs, etc) and I manually check the accounts - edit if needed

    I agree with your opinion

    I agree totally with you. We need niche relevant guest post links and high authority domain PBN links as tier 1. However, I think that backlinks should also come from a diverse range of sources like; organic mentions, resources, guest postings, e-books, editorial pieces. Too many links from a single source can be alarming and raises a red flag.

    So, Web 2.0 still effective to get backlinks. One thing more here you should take care like you're going to build back link, you should analysis/check twice that the website is relevant or not on which sites you are going to post your anchor text. There are many other tech ticks too but web 2.0s are budget in because we don't have to invest money in it! You can write content by yourself and manage it by yourself.
