    I'm in the process of laying the foundations for scaling what's been working for me online. I've been building a private blog network to use as part of my SEO strategy for my niche sites. It's already working fantastically, but I'm trying to figure out a few of the intricacies of using it effectively on a large scale.

    My question is this: how should you be utilizing your network to avoid creating similar link-profiles for each of your money sites?

    Take an extreme example: lets say that you have 100 niche sites. You also have a blog network of 200 sites each on different hosting plans. If you put a link from every blog network site to each of your money sites, that's going to create 100 sites with the same link profiles - and so a big footprint for Google. This is an extreme example but it illustrates the point I'm trying to get at.

    I've been told that each of your money sites should be no more than 60% similar, in terms of links from your blog network, to any other of your money sites.

    I intend to diversify my link profiles with other forms of link-building but I'd be incredibly grateful for a bit of detailed advice on this from somebody who runs a blog network that links out to a lot of money sites.

    Cheers guys,
    Dan.

    Don't link all your website on each of the network blog. Just pick 5 random money site url's and link them on each blog network sites, sell 3-5 spots outside. Then buy some links from other network link providers for your money sites. Also, keep on building other variety of links.

    Hi danny,

    I'm just now getting into private blog/site networks and am afraid that I don't have complete info. Is there a good resource you read that explains the complete process?

    I'd love to PM but can't. Just registered here.
    TIA.

    Outgoing links from your blog networks can be mixed up with links to wikipedia and other authority sites. Also, some of the articles on your private blog network should not have any outgoing links at all. Incoming links to your moneysites can be mixed up with other type of links like bookmarks, web2.0, wiki, profiles etc. This way you will be safer.

    Hey TIA,

    I know it can be a little bit annoying getting all the info. I've done quite a lot of reading and one the best resources is a WSO (Warrior Special Offer) called Full Control SEO, it's a set of written and video training and a forum that will give you more or less everything you need to know. It's only $19 so I'd recommend picking it up. Just pop FullControlSEO into Google.

    Once you're up and running, Linkvana, if used properly, which I imagine it isn't a lot of the time, can be an excellent tool for quickly diversifying the profiles of the sites your linking to from your private blog network.)

    I've done a lot of experimenting with different services, and one I'd suggest is a monthly (think it's about $65) one called SEOFightback. I'm haven't got my head round it completely but the basic premise is as follows (as far as I'm aware): instead of having to build a private network of websites completely yourself, you give other people access to your own sites and they will give you access to theirs. Let's say you have a PR5 website, what you would do is get together with 10 other people who all have a PR5 website and everybody posts on each others sites. I'm going to be trying it out this week and it looks very promising, especially if you're on a a shoestring like me.

    The other advice I'd give is to get really acquainted with the metrics used by Seomoz (on their tool Open Site Explorer) and by MajesticSEO (I prefer Majestic because it has a bulk domain checker, Seomoz offers an API that I've got absolutely no idea how to use but is worth signing up for if you know how to use it.) Recognizing good sites is vital. For a full explanation of how to understand those metrics read and listen to everything on the post "How To Find High PR Expired Domains" by Hayden Miyakamoto. (Google search it)

    There we go, there's probably more to say but I think that's the bulk of it. Get yourself a copy of FullControlSEO and take it from there. Don't take everything in there at face value (I've been advised you need separate hosting, not different c-class IP addresses, for example) but the bulk of the info you need is there.

    I'll pm you my email address so you can ask me aything else,
    Let me know how it goes!
    Dan.
