    Hello,

    I have many questions that I want to ask but I`ll keep this short (i`ll try). Here are my questions:

    I am building my first link pyramid and I am sooo excited :).

    Tier 0: Money Site
    Tier 1: Article directories, Web 2.0, Wikis and Bookmarks (PR 1+)
    Tier 2: Links to tier 1 (all page rank sites)

    How many websites do I need in Tier 1. Will this be effective if I have lets say 10-15 Tier 1 websites which are
    hand build. For example, if I go and manually make 10 blogs on 2.0 websites and then do some Tier 2 on them. Will this be effective. (btw I have chosen a small keyword, not a very competitive one)

    Is it ok if I have just 1 article on my Tier 1 blogs? Does Google find this spammy?

    How much links should I send to my Tier 1. What is too much? I mean if I create a blog on WordPress and I send 500-1000 links to it in 2-3 days is Google going to find out? Is 500-100 overkill?

    What If I get slapped by Google. Does Google send you a message in Webmaster Tools informing you that you`ve been slapped?

    Does no-follow links pass link juice? I read that they dont, but I`ve also read that they do. So I am uncertain about that. If they dont, should i build my link pyramid only with do-follow links at all Tier levels? I am using Ultimate Demon for the link pyramid. Can anybody tell me how to check whether a website is do-follow or nofollow?

    As last, should I keep my money sites (those that I ranked with link pyramids) away from Google Analytics and Google Webmaster Tools? If Google slaps those websites will this affect my legit websites. I have a blog which is naturally ranked (without using a link pyramid) and I have a websites that I am going to rank with a link pyramid. If the one with the pyramid gets slapped, will this affect the other one?

    This one is not related to the link pyramid. How are all these people able to sell likes for Facebook? Can I use Ultimate Demon to create links to my Facebook page so that i`ll get likes? What about using ScrapeBox to
    send some comments with a links to my Facebook? Will this give me likes? What I do want to know is how people are able to sell likes for FB.

    Thanks in advance to anyone who will take time to read my questions and give me an answer.

    Wow you have really have some enthusiasm for this seo stuff. That's great, but I think you first need to address who your competition is in the first place, then and only then can you enter into a discussion about your back link strategy.

    I did that already. Right now I am on the 14th Place in Googles` SERP without any link building and my website is just about 2 weeks old. That already tells you that i am not targeting a competitive word.

    If that is the case, then 10-15 tiers with 500-1000 backlinks to each tier in 2-3 days is definitely overkill. Regarding all of this stuff, especially being new to all of this, start slow and build speed as you see how it goes.

    Build a couple tier 1 sites and manually make a handful of decent links to each. Wait a week or two and see if there is any change. Based on results, continue.

    Yes, you need more than one article on your tier one site.

    Nofollows don't pass link juice but that doesn't mean they're not part of a healthy link profile. If you can get a nofollow link from a strong page authority / domain authority, it's definitely still worth it.

    Look at your competitors in the top 5 spots. How many links do they have? What kind? How strong are they?

    Best of luck...

    If you're already 14th position with no backlinks, you will not need much to move up. Is your domain a keyword match?

    I would focus on social shares to start with, then high high PR social bookmarks. Write a few unique articles and post on squidoo etc. Also create some unique videos and post on YouTube, Vimeo, DailyMotion etc.

    Wait until this Tier 1 work in set up before you start Tier 2-ing. You'll find a lot of the social shares get indexed quickly anyway. Good luck.

    Perhaps its really worth looking into Video for Tier 1. However, YouTube has no-follow links
    in the description BUT it is an authority domain. (As YellowHats said) it is worth it if the domain
    is a high authority. Why is it worth it if Google passes no link juice except of course the people who
    will visit my site through that link?

    Yes, my domain is a keyword match. I have also included the keyword in H1, H2 tags, in the content with density about 1.5%, the image filename is the keyword as well as the alt tags. I`ve done pretty much everything i know about on-site SEO. :):)
