Hi guys Ive been doing some research on tiered linking and ranking your website. First of all th3 oldschool method of checking what the comp is doing always works. Try to emulate that. Social signals play a huge part nowadays. When your do tiered linking always use quality. Ive got a new project and this is what im going to do. Checking the comp and see if i can get any of his links. Maby see if there are some broken links email the website telling em about it and trying to get my own link in. Or maby pay them to get it done. For tier one im not gonna use web 2.o because i think the are going to be degraded. So im only gonna use quality on yhis on3. My own private blog network. Or some guest posts. For tier 2 i try to get some authority to link out to tier 1.. still in mind that the tier2 is still used as buffer. So only quality content here. Also with private network or guest posts. for tier 3 im gonna use private blog netwerks buy them from the usual places. Moz authority pr and majestic trust/citation As you can see im not using any spam on this strategie. I think your chain is as strong as the weakest link. Yes this way of doing it is tim3 consuming. Because you want only good articles and quality links. So the appropriate research is involved. after this i will send social signals to tier2. Cause they are fake and i still need some buffer before it hits my site. For my moneysite i will use real facebook ads to get the fanpage likes. Maby after time get some social signals but deffinitly not before the rest. Diversify for low footprint..ip's cms hosting nameservers. Also diverse anchortext. Lsi versions only Also i will build this out over time. Matt cutts sayong quality is the new thing so why not try that. tell me what you think. Anyone tried this, or know a better way without spam. I hope to learn from this.
