    Hi guys,

    Lets say I have an article on ezine or goarticles. Lets say that for a certain keyword it ranks number 15. Can I use the same process that I would for a website to improve its position? i.e can I get backlinks/make a linkwheel/social bookmark it etc etc to improve its ranking?

    Probably a stupid question but thought id ask.

    Thanks!

    Yep, works great. Just build up some backlinks to it and it should climb. Of course this all depends on the power of the sites above it.

    Thanks again :)

    It will work over time. The part of using EZA that is important to remember is the ranking of the site. This is why it works with them. If your site/blog was also PR6, you could do this all day with your site and outrank them.

    I answered a similar question in another thread. Here's part of what I suggested...

    1. Spin the two original articles and submit them to as many article directories as possible. Important: The spun article you created from the EZA article should link back to the original EZA article and the spun article from the goarticle article should point to the original goarticles article. This way you get many backlinks right from the beginning.

    2. Get as many additional one-way backlinks from authority sites as possible linking to the EZA and goarticles articles (Try even to get a few QUALITY backlinks from .edu and/or .gov sites). Check amount and quality of the backlinks that point to the highly ranked competitor articles and get more and better backlinks.

    3. Create several linkwheels for each of the original articles.

    4. And, of course, bookmark and ping everything and submit the rss feeds.

    This should enable you to outrank the competitor's articles. You have even 2 chances (EZA and goarticles). And, since both articles point to your money site, it will get good rankings eventually too.

    Hope this helps.

    So you link from article 1 to article 2, even though they are the same article, just spun (so similar)?
    This is obvious spam though. The people who go to article 2 will think
    "Hold on a minute this is the same article, just worded a bit differently"

    What use to the reader would linking them together have? And as they will surely see it that the linking together doesn't make any sense, won't they report/flag it?

    I can understand linking an article to your money site; and linking an article to another article which is on theme, but different. But linking 2 articles together that are about the same thing, sounds like something that doesn't have much longevity in it.

    This is meant for backlink purposes only and it works!

    Where abouts in article 1 would you have the link to article 2?
    As I assume you place the link where you don't want someone to click it. Because if they do, like I've said above, they will know it's the same article just reworded.

    This doesn't come across as White Hat, really. Probably more Grey Hat as the link is being placed for SEO purposes only, not to help the user/reader, which I think is something you do for more long term success.

    Let me try to explain it again.

    Say you submit an article to EZA. In the resource box you link to your money site.

    Then you submit a spun article (or a complete different one) to as many article directories as possible and in the resource box you link back to your EZA article = many instant backlinks for your EZA article.

    And, since many article directories allow 2 links you can also link to your money site.

    And, again, this is mostly done for a better serp's ranking of your EZA article. Finally, since links from article directories are solid backlinks it's also a long term strategy.

    Thanks Peter, this certainly sounds like a great way.

    Now, for the Web 2.0 - which ones in your opinion are the best?
    Which do Google tend to rank higher compared to other Web 2.0 or is the difference only in the speed they get ranked, and not, how much Google favour them for ranking purposes?
