    I'm sharing my SEO strategy that I use to rank my innerpages for low competition keywords in less than 4 weeks. I'm doing this for 3 reasons: First, so I can get feedback from you guys. I'm always ready to change, add and improve my strategy so feel free to comment. Second, helping out newbies and people that are stuck is a great thing to do and what BHW is all about. And third, to shut up the people that are spreading that awfull saying "SEO is dead". Honestly, I really don't see the big fuzz about SEO and why it's difficult? I ranked my first 5 keywords a month after I started IM and I pretty much knew from the start that SEO all boils down to quality links in your tier1. Sure I'm only making a couple of bucks a day with Adsense of these 5 keywords but it's all about scale, right? Just don't get lazy and don't be affraid to spend some cash.

    Now, don't expect anything ground breaking or super new. Like I said, it's a simple but effective strategy. Also note, my complete strategy is based on services here on BHW. Most of it is outsourced in other words. So here we go..


    Step #1 - web2.0 blogs
    Create 15 quality web2.0 blogs with at least 400 words of content. It's really important that you vary these web2.0 blogs. Vary in word count, amount of posts (between 1 - 3) and used platform. Use videos, images and create an about page on some of these web2.0s. And only unique content of course! No spun, scraped or unreadable crap in your 1th tier! It's important that you put some time in this step as this part of your 1th tier will carry the most weight. Don't forget to add only 1 link to your site and another one to a related web2.0 or authority site. I actually prefer to link back to other web2.0's of the same platform because it looks like you are interacting with the whole "community" idea.

    Step #2 - doc sharing
    Pretty simple step. Create a simple article with some fancy images and stuff and submit it to 5 - 10 high pr doc sharing sites. No big deal or hassle about this. Just do it ;)

    Step #3 - bookmarking
    Throw 200 general bookmarks to your money site and 15 high pr bookmarks (folkd, technocati, ect.)
    Make sure the 200 general ones are decently spun. 2 sentence rewrites + word spun is the minimum I use. The 15 high pr bookmarks should be unique.

    Step #4 - high pr blog comments
    20 - 40 ONPAGE pr3 - pr7 comments. There are great services here on BHW that deliver these at affordable prices. Just a quick search will get you what you need.

    Step #5 - video sharing
    Create or outsource a video that talks about your site or keyword. Vid should be at least 30 - 45 seconds. Not saying longer is better but it just looks better. Put the video on youtube, vimeo, etc.

    {Optional} Step #6 - high pr blog network
    The reason this step is optional is because often the first 5 steps are enough to get you on page 1. Since networks tend to be more costly, I consider this overkill and unneccessary costs. But I'm going to try to include this step for harder keywords and see if this is the missing link. People with experience in this field will be able to tell you more about this.


    This is our 1th tier. Time for backing these links up with a tier 2 for some link juice :)
    I'm not going to make this too complicated since the 2th tier consists of bookmarks and wikis. I start with sending 1200 bookmarks to the web2.0's, video links and doc sharing sites. This ensure very fast indexing and after that I hit the Web2.0's and doc sharing links with 4000 wikis. These wikis get an additional tier 3 of 20.000 blog comments and basically that is it.

    Like I said, nothing ground breaking.. just simple and effective :) The overall costs for a campaign like this are about $100. The more tools you have and the better your content writer rates are, the less expensive it gets. Feel free to advice, comment and ask questions.

    Linkdiversity is always good for the sites. Getting links from different sources with mixed anchor texts will still working.

    Are you saying I should put more wikis, bookmarks and comments in my tiers? You know, somehow I feel like these web2.0 blogs don't show ALL the potential power they have.. Like something is missing to give them that little extra

    That's actually the beauty of it. I go through the whole checklist in 5 - 7 days and then give it 2 weeks. If I'm not in the first page after 2 weeks I usually give it an extra boost with some more high pr blog comments and another 5 web2.0 blogs with the same tier2 and 3 structure. First page guaranteed :bigeyes2:

    This strategy definitely works and I use it all the time. One thing I am missing is an inexpensive but effective private blog network service. Can you recommend anything particular on bhw or fiverr.

    Great post. Does this kind of linking survive the google monthly updates? I used to use a similar linking and the pages would rank, but get slapped by the updates. I've changed it up now to use contextual links on all tiers and no longer get slapped anymore (takes longer to rank though).

    Would love to hear your experience on this.

    So far they have survived.. Don't wanna get ahead of things but I think this is pretty safe since we're not throwing tons of uncontextual links at the money site. And besides, the focus is more on the web2.0 blogs anyways. I think the reason for getting slapped could have something to do with the quality of your tier 1.. Like I said, the web2.0's are really nice and not your average spammy web2.0
    You could always skip step 2 or 5 if you worry about to many uncontextual links.
    Ohw yeah and about using contextual links in higher tiers.. I only use wikis (contextual) and bookmarks (semi-contextual)
    A scrapebox blast to those wikis is safe, but don't directly blast your tier 1 links

    Contextual links are links to your site that are surrounded with relevant content

    Very simple but I thought blog networks have proven to be no longer effective?

    If it is low competition why so many links needed? I ranked first without any backlinks for low competition keyword.
    Just do the proper on-page seo, offer relevant content and that's it....

    I heard similar things but I always like to confirm things like that myself. I guess it's still working but you just gotta get into a solid private one. I'm planning on contacting a few network owners here and ask whether they also have smaller ones with less site but also less users. Like I said, I'm just starting to play around with this so I've got no idea of how it's going to work out

    Low competition doesn't mean NO competition dude. Not saying you can't rank a page with only using on-page seo and relavent content but keywords like this are
    A. Very low searched keywords with barely any monthly searches
    B. The keyword has no commercial value, ergo no advertisers, ergo no decent cpc (that is if you are monetizing with Adsense)
    Most of my low competition pages get indexed on page 3 or even 2 sometimes but on a 1k monthly searched keyword you gotta go for #1 or you'll barely get any traffic. Just on-page seo doesn't cut it anymore these days (unfortunately)

    Great post. I agree, and I am finding anchor variation to be hugely important. Ive even been having success with bulk comments to my money site as long as the anchor text is varied. I mean seriously varied.

    talking about doc sharing, are you expecting to have someone to link to those docs? do you have good personal experience with it?
