    In terms of trying to rank web 2.0 properties such as a hubpages or a squidoo or an article such as ezinearticles for affiliate sales such as "keyword" review does anyone have any experience with how easily they are to rank compared to an exact keyword in domain, fresh domain. Will I see faster results by directly blasting them or can I still get the site sandboxed and thus should do linkwheels for them. Thanks for any input and anecdotal experience!

    I don't notice much difference to be honest. All I can say is that a web 2.0 or article from a big authority site is a LOT less likely to ever get hit by a penalty /sandbox or whatever for excessive linking.

    In terms of getting them to rank, no, I have not found them to be any easier than a standard domain.

    My experience is some Web 2.0 properties are easier to get ranked for. I find Ezine articles and Squidoo best as long as they are optimised for the target keyword. I usually create a Blog post on the keyword and then link back from Squidoo / Ezine to that page. I need fewer links to Ezine / Squidoo to get it ranked than the Blog post.

    The exception to the rule (for me) is if I post on one of my authority sites (aged with decent PR) the Blog post will rank better.

    Some of my best money spinners have been aged Squidoo lenses with a decent amount of back links flowing into them.

    Thanks for the replies, this definitely has clarified some stuff regarding web 2.0 property/articles propensity to get hit by big G penalties etc.

    Most Web 2.0 sites won't rank for competitive keywords.
    Find properties that rank high like Ezine, Yahoo Answers, etc.

    Squidoo doesn't seem to do as well anymore. I've found hubpages to be the easiest to rank lately. Google seems to like that site. It's a little bit easier than ranking your own domain because it's already an authority site and you don't have to worry about adding more content like you would if it was your website.
