    hi guys

    quick one: what needs to happen before you decide that you should move on and start a new parasite? do you wait 1 week/2 weeks/3 months etc?

    of course the best is to have like 20 parasites at the same time and gather data from there. but for newbies that won't be an option.

    the longest i've held on to a parasite is 3 months and that cost me around $500 in sape costs. sometimes the rankings get delayed and i only see rankings after a couple of months. sometimes i shoot straight to the top 2 pages then get kicked out in 2 weeks or less.

    feel free to add your own personal observations

    I'm still quite new to parasite SEO but so far I've found I need to wait about 1/2 weeks to rank (online movie niche) and my parasite gets tanked about 2 weeks later.

    How did the parasite with $500 in sape costs work out for you? Sounds interesting

    tanked in 2 weeks? wow that's fast. but it's normal with churn n burn. the $500 parasite was set up as follows:

    sape -> expired domain with authority links -> PR8 parasite

    i bought the expired domain from one of the sellers here. oh and the sape is from here also

    You do realise that if you keep moving on you won't make any money, right? I'm not a fan of parasite SEO as they have proven to be just as difficult to rank as pages on a domain you own. Parasites only rank faster when they have internal links from other pages on the same domain.

    parasites are not my main source of income, i use them to get cash to fund other projects. and as far as parasites not ranking quickly, the fastest i got a parasite to the second page was in 3 days using 301 redirect 2 weeks after penguin 3. so it is possible to get fast rankings with parasites, but i agree with you that it's not dependable.

    i haven't been able to do it consistently so far. but that's just me, the more experienced members would know how to do it.

    Don't over-complicate, or overload what parasites are for. This is what dooms a lot of techniques in IM, the over-hyping of a method, followed by deluxe 'packages' or over-spending on a schema that was supposed to be straightforward and no-cost in the first place. Remember the original, simple concept of link tiers and link wheels, which could be put together (or easily tweaked) to provide a safe, quick and dirty initial backweb for a MNS? The "deluxe packages" folks complicated that concept real quick, with expensive services.

    Big picture: There are certain properties that Google won't punish, de-rank or de-index, that you can link to your target page with no worries. These exceptions can then be blasted with all manner of mass submits, to provide a benefit to the target page in terms of ranking or direct traffic. Combined with changing re-directs and periodic re-blasts, this can be an ongoing benefit.

    That's it. Parasites are simple shields that make churning rankings and traffic to a site easier, and perhaps extends it longer. This tactic, like others before it, is not intended to be a digital ginsu knife that solves all possible problems indefinitely, nor does it require a dime of money to create or sustain. You could be sending parasite-driven traffic to a blogger blog or other such site without paying any SAPE, domain or hosting fees. K.I.S.S.--just keep it simple, SEOers.

    well, excuse my ignorance, but the way i use parasites is to actually rank for easy/medium keywords in an environment where authority sites get all the love. instead of relying on the strength on my own domain (which is weaker than say rebelmouse) i use parasites to borrow the authority of the root domain, so that i can get that traffic quicker.

    this is different from the tiered linking stuff where you create web2.0s just for their links.

    and it does cost money to do it, because i would need to tell google to rank my parasite over the other authority sites in the same niche. so high authority links.

    I don't deny that paid authority links makes things easier, it's just not required in order to get them. WH authority links can be obtained from a number of directions without paying for them, it just costs you a lot of time.

    totally agree with you there. and to me the whole purpose of churn n burn is to bank as fast as possible. and that's what i'm looking for from things like sape. faster results.
