    its what i keep saying, the old tactics still work, its just that there are so many rumors around by self proclaimed "gurus" who just talk all day and "assume" things without actually trying.
    even if its hard to read, but still a good field test :)

    @jefis - site for USA is down (mass google niche cleaning; not connected with linking at all) , but those one for .pl is still standing and morover - I've made another one with the same method.

    @still trying It depends man, because:

    1 - in most cases for ads you need greater starting budget; in seo - some basic cost + knowledge and time

    2 - it depends what kind of earnings you like - SEO give you passive income, even when you stop looking over your site/sites; in ads - there is no money on account - there are no ads

    3 - not all industries are welcome in ads, for example porn, gambling, loans, etc. (and they are branches connected with great money), but seo still can handle with them

    4 - organic traffic converts better than ads - people are tired by flood made by many various kinds of ads; in other hand - they don't understand seo too well (or even don't know nothing about it), so they think, that their pick of site is made only by their own choice - without any advertaising

    5 - few other reasons (don't want create too long elaborate)

    So, as you see - it depends what you are looking for in seo/cpc and from perspective.

    @jefis what kind of images you would like to see?

    @fb3003 no problem - at last I've decided to make some contribution to BHW community + be a little bit more active user since now on (I am reading this forum since years already, long time before my registration here)

    About your question - I am not using MOZ or Majestic; I prefer to use Ahrefs since a few years - imho - both mentioned tools are kinda weak in comparision to Ahrefs.

    This is actually a bit misleading. Of course, you can get results when you blast. It did, it does and it will in the future too. Back in the day, this method gave long term results, from 2013-14 onwards, this only yields short term benefits. It lasts till the big G catches up with you...and catch up it will, especially if you have that many blasted links and too little substance on your site. If you are planning a 'hit and run' campaign and don't mind gambling with your time and money, you can do this...but even then, the time between the 'hit' and the 'run' is extremely iffy. Not a good bet for people who are just beginning or are trying to establish a regular source of income.

    Great share :)
    Thanks !
    But now my question is : Is it still relevant after all those big G updates ?
    A more recent case study would be great.
    And for those who can tell too : can you still use those kind of stuffs on non-English websites ? As all my websites are in French.

    Analytics from 2018 & 2019 to prove that backlink blasts work in the long-term.

    Sure you can get a spike in ranking with a blast, but will it last in the long run?

    @jefis , @SwitchMitch , @Sweetrevenge - below - answers for your questions (my latest site made by this kind of blasts) - started around April 2018:

    Jump of reff pages and domains:
    https://imgur.com/a/0amBKnf

    Jump of traffic and KW's:
    https://imgur.com/a/fLfTDIT

    GA data connected with blast; provided in weeks (site has 95 % traffic from organic source) :
    https://imgur.com/a/i3IW4aS

    So... yes - blast was done and the traffic is still there, even when a year already have passed by. Of course - traffic is dropping, same as links, but as I mentioned at start - I treat those sites as SEO tests/cases and my side projects, not main source of income, so... whatever.

    Enough as answer I guess?

    In last past years I've already made such blasts for USA, DE, PL and one more (I don't remember which one already) - alyways works same way as you see in screensshoots. I supposed then - it will fit for sites in any kind of language.

    What kind of blast are we talking? Scrapebox, GSA, Senuke, Web 2.0, PBNs?

    I could, but I Am afraid, that it could look as some sort of buzz marketing. PM, then I will give you a proper search term/link to website.

    So are you saying that an Xrumer forum profile link blast produces these kind of results? I call BS. Post some proof of the kind of links you are blasting your site with.

    No it doesn't answer my questions. You say it works on ALL your sites? I find that extremely hard to believe. Any IM'er worth his salt will find that hard to believe. I'll leave it right there bud. Good luck with whatever you're trying to do here.
