    Hi all,

    By way of introduction, I'm a relatively new member to the SEO community - 5 months to be exact. However, it really intrigues me and I'm interested in taking things further. I have made 2 sites so far which have been somewhat of a failure, but I'm currently setting up two new sites to see which one will work best for me.

    1. White Hat Authority Site
    2. Black Hat Niche Site

    My questions now are mostly related to the Black Hat Niche Site

    I have bought a new brandable domain. My plan to start ranking is as follows:

    1. Use a 301 redirect to the domain to give it some age
    2. Use a press release, Web 2.0 service to blast links at it with variations of the brand anchor text
    3. Use PBN links to prop up the power pages that I'm trying to rank in Google - I'll point these to the 301 so that I can remove the 301 if things go wrong
    4. This is a similar technique that Alex Becker used on his Online Guitar Lessons website

    My questions are as follows:

    1. Do these techniques still work or will they just get me penalized by Google right away?
    2. How long should I wait before I start blasting links at it?
    3. Are there any better ways to achieve this?

    Any help from you guys is appreciated!

    You're asking THE forum that Alex Becker hates if an Alex Becker (stolen) method works? GTFO There is a reason that guy thinks we're all trolls that don't like his shit. If you're serious about SEO, then stop listening to sales people in front of a camera and start networking with real SEOs.

    Thanks for the warm welcome JournoNick.

    Ok, so other than ignoring Alex Becker do you have any other suggestions to add to the discussion? Thought I might find some like minded individuals individuals here that would be willing to lend a hand, but maybe I was wrong.

    With that attitude, you're probably right. Make an effort mate, people won't come to you because you're offering nothing and made 1 post.

    I'm not offering anything because I'm new to the SEO community and am asking for advice. Isn't that what forums are for?

    Ill be happy to share my experiences once I get further, but right now there isn't much to share. What I have outlined is my plan of attack and all I'm wondering is whether this is a sensible one or not.

    Trial and error is your best friend here! Its a fucking drag, but you learn how to do it right. Set up 3 or more projects, use different approaches, collect the data and do it all over again with your new knowlegde. It doesent take long, just be systematic and test, test, test.

    Exactly what I was going to say. Each industry is different - each country is different - and anyone on here will not give you an accurate answer by only knowing a strategy.

    I see this kind of thread almost everyday. My advice to you is to stop wondering whether a method would work or not and just try it. If it works, scale it and make lots of money till it stops working. If it doesn't work, try another method.

    Thanks for the advice guys.

    I actually have two projects on the go already. One is a white-hat authority site (the methods of with I'm fairly confident with, but which take a lot longer to implement), and the other is a more short-term black-hat site that I'm trying to set up (with which I have less experience). Was just wondering whether there were any particular methods you guys had success with recently. I guess I'll get crackin' myself and figure it out.
