    I have a few basic questions I'm hoping someone can give me some insight on about link pyramids.
    For the example of this post, tier 0 is money site, tier 1 is web 2.0, etc.

    1. Is it viable to make your tier 1 sites essentially micro niche sites if you have a large authority site?

    2. Should you create multiple link pyramids, having each one target a couple keywords? Is this viable?

    3. Does anyone have an example of what kind of content should go on a tier 1 site? I keep trying to think of why a site like that would occur naturally on the web, and I can't think of an idea what it even provides to the user. I want something that close to my money site to be useful to Google and the user.

    1. Yes. I do this.

    2. Yes. Again, I do this. Also helps you monetize your tier 1 microniche sites, because they will rank higher.

    3. Just do a wordpress blog, and blog about the keyword you are targeting. If you're really out of ideas, you can just post youtube videos and do a quick review of them.

    To put it as simple as possible: Your tier 1's should be websites that talk about the keywords you're targeting. So if your website is about boats, then throw up a few pages about boats and link to your site as a reference on the created site.

    Basically you want to have your tier 1's as funnel sites, driving traffic to your main money site. Tier 1's for this purpose will allow you more control and more diversity when Google rolls another update. So instead of your site getting hit and loosing everything, maybe 30 of your funnel sites get hit.

    To your tier 1 funnel sites, just spam them with whatever you can and see which ones come out alive. After all, it should take you a few minutes to create each one and it doesn't matter much if they don't come out. It also gives you the flexibility to test what is working at the moment instead of listening to the 90% of garbage that is out here online. Not just BHW, EVERYWHERE!

    Make the funnel sites pretty because people will see them. These are not for linking purposes but just driving traffic. You will actually gain some PR on these if you do it right. Think of it as your mini network. Make sure to use sites that won't delete because those are a pain.

    Start with 300, you can use 2.0s and your own private sites. I use a mix of the both. I spam shitty links to the 2.0s because i dont care about them and I am a little more careful with the privates. Either way, I dont care if they get hit because I know they will eventually.

    Dont make the same mistake that I did and many others on this forum have made. Learn the hard way and you will be sure to never do it again. Good luck!

    Another question on tier 1 sites:

    Is the point of making them on web 2.0 sites to gain the already established PR of said site?
    What if, instead of 2.0's, or in addition to them, I used aged, high PR domains?

    There's so much out there of people getting google slapped that I'm almost afraid to experiment. I dont want to lose the work I put into this first big project. I'm trying to make my sites natural looking and actually provide use to the user. As long as I'm doing this, I should be okay right?

    Fail. Google doesn't care about that shit. Google doesn't care about your good content or anything of that nature. They will destroy you in a heartbeat.

    Your an idiot. Where did I say SEO was bad? You obviously don't know anything about SEO as shown in your response. SEO is not dead and it is actually alive as ever. Ranking is easy. Did i ever say anything about ranking? Keeping a site from getting slapped is another story.

    Again, dont chime in unless you actually have something of value to add otherwise your just wasting space

    And a dumb response like that to someone who knows what they are talking about and who was helping you is just plain retarded. Good luck! Peace

    I appreciate your help. I interpreted your post as saying, quality doesn't matter, google will slap you no matter what. And while I am no SEO expert, I highly doubt that is the case and tend to get a little sarcastic when people try to impress that notion to me, so sorry if I offended you.
    I'm going to pose one more question for this thread:

    Long term, is white hat possible? I see so much about how SEO lasts 3 months maximum and how any little action WILL get you google slapped. It just doesnt make sense to me if you are providing content to the user because Google will still be making money off you if you are decent site. So why remove the people who do it right?

    1.yeah I start out building 10-12 Web2s per keyword, doing this about every week. I create them with FCS Networker, which automatically creates them and then updates them so they look original. Then I use FCS Networker to post unique content to these properties.

    2. Yeah for sure.

    3. I would say just iWriter articles or get stuff rewritten on MTurks or find a bulk content provider on here or another forum. Content is freaking expensive but your tier 1s are integral.
