    For a new site or to improve rankings ?

    Quality over quantity, great genuine outreach guest posts and a proper PBN.

    You need a mix of diversity. It also depends on what type of site / keyword you're working on too to a degree.

    Link building technique always depends on what is needed for your site. You need analyse several factors before working on the strategy for your website.

    Proper on page, quality contents, niche relevant posts will be needed for all the sites. Additional links needed will be based on the requirements only.

    From my experience, getting backlinks from high quality contents posted on a genuinely outreached blog will definitely improve the rankings and get you decent traffic flow as well.

    Diversity is the way to go, one thing i have noticed on last couple of projects don't use your targeted keywords as anchors too often (imean a test i was running in which i made 120 links to a new website only 10 out of those links had my keywords and the rest for naked url and brand terms, i have seen some quick rankings almost ranking for all the terms on 1st page now all i need is some juicy links to push it to the top 3 spots. The aim is to go slow let all your links get indexed, meanwhile create some social signals and wait till the ranking gets stable (for me it usually takes 15-20 days) then i send couple of links every week.

    I also suggest you, guest posting. but if you have taken some variation of your backlink trick then you will take your result as soon as possible.

    the ugly truth about link acquisition:
    It is costly and time-consuming.
    To combat these two issues you must learn how to get the most out of every backlink.

    Here’s how you can accomplish that goal:

    • You must have a technically optimized site
    • You must have a strong site architecture
    • You must have valuable content

    relevant links to your site VERY LITTLE keyword linking naked links are best unless a DA over 60

    Did I say relevant links to your site ... stop trying to hack reddit for an automotive shop ... you should be trying to guest post on Car and Driver or posting all over the comments section.

    Google is still having a hard time telling comments from content a bit still so comments that are not spamming and provide relevant value to a site still bring some weight especially with a high TF domain/page.

    Be clever to get your webpage up think of relevant sites and get click through that helps as well especially with nofollow

    you need strong contextual links....
    real guestposts are the best followed by a well done PBN and web 2.0

    For me, nothing has changed. The combination of links still do the magic. But as @lilmasta said, instead of using rich anchors, go with brand, generic and naked anchors. A site of mine got tanked because of the too many keyword rich anchors I used months ago.
    When it comes to tier 1. Go with quality over quantity.

    The most used method for link building is a guest post, participate in some of the well-known discussion forum & social activity like twitter, facebook, google plus & Pinterest.

    Another thing i am testing on a new project, I am using 10 Web 2.0's as tier 1 (Unique content 4-5 articles not every article contain a link, 1 custom video and unique images) all the web 2.0's have their respective social media pages/account (Facebook, twitter and Gplus) i have setup a 2nd layer with another 20 web 2.0 this time spun content and using cheap Sape links to juice them up. so every tier 1 web 2.0 has two web 2.0's as second tier's which are juiced up with sape links.

    I am in process of creating another layer of web 2.0's which will be used as tier 3 but this time every web 2.0 will contain 2 links (link wheel for tier 2) i am plan to hit them with GSA contextual links and see how this goes.

    You must be thinking these are some really out dated technique's but lemme tell you if done right this still works like a charm.

    I am going to do the same thing, but not as deep as yours.
    I ranked a .wordpress page for a search term of 1000+ per month and other related KWs. And it has 1000 words article (100% unique). What I use is 301 redirects, cheap PBNs and then blasting those shortners with GSA. It is ranking for "blue widget 2017" on top 3.

    So I implement this in a brand new website.
    This time I created 10x web2.0s with spun content and using pbns and url shortners. No, I didn't create social media for each of the accounts :(.
    It was able to push the test sit to top 10 to 50 (see screenshot below)
    The site will be 3 months by 12 August.


    [​IMG]


    From what I can detect, the web2.0s were able to bring it to the top 10 and 20 for most of the KWs. I might need some stronger links to push it to the top 5. I am going for premium web2.0s like - cafemom, shewrites, hr.com etc. Or go for PBNs.

    New test loading:
    I am going to implement this in a new site again.
    But this time, I will be using 100% unique handwritten articles on the tier 1s. and creating tier 2s properties with spun content. I will then blast this tier 2s with cheap PBNs links and url shortner + GSA.

    Lets see if I will get the same result as above.

    Want to advice you not to copy your сompetitors backlinks list, make your own backlinks list more unique.

    This will indeed work, you can get initial ranking with method, get your MS into top 20's then let it stay there for a while generate some quality content. then start drip feeding juicy links (PBN's and Guest posts) but you gotta be slow i mean too many links in short time will burn the website.

    Couple of my MS that have been in the top 3 for almost two years had similar work done, although at that time i had alot of time so i have built up to 10 tiers :D i know this sounds crazy but it paid off very well. I have stopped making links to these sites for almost 6 months now and rankings are rock solid. You gotta make a strong foundation and rely on links that you control (don't buy PBN posts on long term projects) because eventually the posts will go into second page and you will loose rankings.

    Wow. Never heard of anyone building more than tier 4! 10? What are you on to :D I need some of those to stay motivated. Yeah, PBNs are not that great for long term project.(unless they are yours). But they work like magick if you buy from a powerful network.

    But the 10 tiers? I am going to re-plan my method of link building. Thank you!
