Hey guys. I'm new here so please bear with me. Iv read a tonne of great posts here on public and private blog networks. I trying to formulate a plan to building a private network I can use myself. This is what I have so far: 1. Buy some EMD's. Write 3 - 10 articles and build a site on each EMD. Ensure each site is hosted on a different sever, with different ips, different or private whois, no Google analytics's or other footprints. 2. Create a series of web 2.0 sites on sites like Squidoo or Tumblr. Write some content for each and use different accounts for each site. 3. Create a main money site designed for max conversions. An authority site. 4. Point the tier two sites and web 2.0 sites at the money site as well as authority sites. 5. Use a primarily white hat link bait strategy to supplement the moneys sites link profile. 6. Build links to the tier two sites and web 2.0 sites. Hopefully been as the sites have EMD's I will see some traction the SERPS for the tier two sites which I can use for lead gen/cpa etc... The main problem I have is finding the most time/cost effective strategy to build links to the tier two sites in sufficient quantity as to pass enough link juice to get both the tier two site ranking AND the money site. My initial thought was your typical manual blog commenting and forum member pages posting. However I also had the thought of using some lesser known public blog networks (that are hopefully flying under goggles radar for the moment, rip BMR) to send links to my tier 2 pages and build up their pagerank. This way if for some reason one of the sites in the network loses page rank because they are linked to by a slapped public blog network. I can just pull the link to the main site. Very controllable. Any thoughts, suggestions, sorry if I rambled a bit or not making sense. Just trying to get an overall strategy I can commit to! Feel free to grab me by the shoulders and steer me in the right direction!
