    So I don't quite understand pyramid/tier backlinking. Lets say I made a tier 1 backlink going straight to my money site at " djaksldjdsakdljask.com/backlink " . and than wanted to make a tier 2 backlink going to that. Would i just simply put " djaksldjdsakdljask.com/backlink " as the link instead of my money site? If so, wouldn't it give all the other posts/backlinks posted by other users tier 2? I'm sorry I'm new to this, hopefully someone can answer this question.

    Thank you, I've read a couple of them and they all say " Link back to tier 1 account ". They are talking about social media, I'm talking about tier 2 for like wordpress/blog posts which don't have any accounts.

    OP, there are plenty of videos on YouTube and tons of posts on here that will answer your question. W130SN did your first step for you in finding them.

    But yes, I think you understand correctly. If you want to juice up abc.com via a tiered linking method, then you would have your first tier links point to abc.com. Perhaps the URL of that backlink is defg.com. So your second tier backlinks would point to defg.com.

    Does some of the juice get lost on the way up? That depends on what types of links you're building. If one of your tier 1 backlinks is a blog comment on a page with 500 other comments listed, then yes, a lot of the tier 2 juice to that tier 1 backlink is going to go to those other links on that page.

    Learn about different types of backlinks (blog comments, image comments, directory submissions, social bookmarks, social network posts, article directories, etc.) and what they look like when they're complete. Pay attention to OBL and do/nofollow ratio of links on the page. This will help you formulate a good tiered link building plan.

    Everyone has their own way of tiered link building. Some people build only ******** backlinks for the sake of passing optimal link juice to the money site, while others do a mix of do and nofollow backlinks for the sake of appearing more "natural". Some people build links with PR of 1 and above, while others don't really care.

    The best way for you to find out what works is to test across a few sites for a bunch of keywords and tweak your strategy as needed.

    Thank you for the great response :) I understand now. Currently trying to rank a low comp niche that's making me $30 a day with just a youtube video on the first page. Hopefully that will double once my site is on the very top as well.

    $30 a day from just a YouTube video is really good. Good luck in your tiered linking.
