    Hey Guys, I was just wondering at what level tiers become ineffective? Let's say you have your anchor text links on the first tier, scrapebox/xrumer on the second tier (pointing to the anchor text pages), would a third tier of scrapebox/xrummer pointing to the second tier be at all effective? :confused:

    IMHO, these tiers can go for ever, but tier 1 & 2 (web2.0's) --> tier 3 the buffers for tier 2. Anything past tier 3 hasn't much value

    The more complicated the tiers the higher the value the links will be. It all depends what you do with it. You don't really need more than 2-3 tiers. The main point of the tiers is to build the quality of the links that eventually go to the money page. And the first tier are usually low value, so you try and increase the value of it.
    So you have

    Money site
    ^
    1. Web 2.0s (these don't have much value, so you can blast these)
    ^
    2. Profiles, Comments (these don't have much value so it's sending the web2.0s very little juice, so the point is to blast these links with another tier.
    ^
    3. Comments, Profiles, etc

    Think of each tier as a 0. You want to build the strength of #1 as high as possible. To do that, we want to get #2 high. So you take a ton of tier #3 and hope you can change the links in #2 from a 0 to 1s. Then you hope all those 1s make the value of the web2.0s a 2. In turn, you hope the 2s to the money site give results.

    Awesome guys, thanks for the help. I'll stick around the 3 tier mark then and vary it up. Thanks again.
