    So I've been doing a lot of reading on this forum (so much golden content by some members btw)...

    I have my money site...

    I have a number of web 2.0 properties pointing to it...

    Then I've been building up backlinks to those properties (mass article submissions, bookmarking, etc.)

    Now I have 2 questions in regards to doing this type of seo campaign...

    /// QUESTION #1 ///

    For all your web 2.0 structures, are you going after the same phrase? Or is each web 2.0 structure targeting a different phrase? Or do you just vary everything up and go after different keywords, in different 2.0 properties and just mix it up.

    I guess my question is what is your outbound linking strategy for your web 2.0 properties (where you are pointing your links to and what your anchor is)



    /// QUESTION #2 ///

    Likewise, what is your outbound linking strategy for your 2nd tier backlinks (backlinks pointing to your 2.0 properties)?

    Say you have a wordpress.com blog on "how to approach a girl"

    And then you have a post on there called "how to approach a girl - a 5 step technique"

    Say you have something like Article Marketing Robot that blasts hundreds of articles to that wordpress.com blog.

    Would ALL your articles have links with anchor text that includes "how to approach a girl" or would you vary it up a bit...

    I guess my question is what is your outbound linking strategy for 2nd tier backlinks?

    Confused... :confused:

    For my networks, I take the level of focus down 1 notch as I go down 1 tier in the structure.

    So if the central site is about "make money trading forex", i'll make the supporting level sites (level 2) half about forex in general, and half about making money in general. Each will have a mix of articles present. The article which links to the central site will be the most "on-topic".

    Going down to level 3, the topic would be general foreign currency issues, business, making money etc.

    Don't be too exact with your site titles and article titles. It leaves a potential footprint.

    Google will get that the sites are relevant to the central site, without you naming everything exactly. This is unnatural and could raise a flag. Make it look like a real, organic linking structure.

    Always very the anchor texts, but you do not have to do this too much. Even 50 or 60% exact match is ok, but the rest should be variations, and even throw in a few "click here" and "this article" for good measure.

    Got it... Awesome bro. Few more things...

    Do you usually go deep or wide with your web 2.0 structures?

    Meaning... Do you look to continually add posts to the W2.0's that you currently have? If so, how often do you update those sites?

    Or do you focus more of your time building more W2.0's?

    Also...

    Do you ever go "3 or more tier" with your link structure?

    I'd rather have 1 web 2.0 that has lots of posts, looking like an authority on the subject and thus giving a highly targeted and authoritative backlink than 10 web 2.0's that unnaturally have only 1 post each...

    Yup. Like the earlier member said, would make sense to have multiple posts on each Web 2.0 rather than have a thousand new ones with just one article each. Makes the Tier II that much more effective too!
