    I am working on an authority site. I reviewed several services here on BHW and outside as well and picked the best parts in my view and based on what I am reading on SEO.

    If you are an expert, can you review this and provide your feedback? I will truly appreciate it.

    Do you think I have it covered?
    Any link types I should not be going after as they are waste of time?
    Any service recommendation for services which cover all / most of it ?


    Target Anchor text profile

    Anchor type Example
    10% - Brand Match widgetexpert
    10% - Exact Match red widgets
    10% - URL Match widgetexpert.com
    20% - Partial Match where to buy red widgets, best red widgets
    20% - Related keyword where can I buy colred widgets?, the best types of widgets
    30% - Random click here, vist us, etc.

    Social Profile
    Create profile with pseudo name
    Twitter
    FB page
    G+ Profile

    Tier 1
    20 Manual bookmarking to root domain:
    - Unique titles
    - Unique (Spun) descriptions
    - Related and Partial match Anchor text
    - Target PR3+ Sites

    10 Manual bookmarking each to 5 inner:
    - Unique titles
    - Unique (Spun) descriptions
    - Related and Partial match Anchor text
    - Target PR3+ Sites

    50 Manual directory submissions:
    - High PR (Will target PR 4+, but at least PR 3+)
    - These should take some time to get approved.
    - So natural drip feed
    - Brand, Related and Partial match Anchor text.

    20 Manual comments:
    - I will personally make 20 comments using the name of the profile I specifically created for this site.
    - Will use overall high DA sites, not concerned about follow / nofollow.
    - Drip feed

    10 Manual high-quality Web 2.0 creation:
    -Non Keyword based url. Instead of keyword.wordpress.com I will get kellyonmoney.wordpress.com type names but which can still be niche relevant.
    - Start with a 300+ word unique+original article unrelated to my site. Let it sit for a week.
    - Add one article with 2-4 links. 1 to my site and 1-4 to other authoritative, noncompeting sites. Let it sit for a week.
    - Add one more article link to one of my inner pages.

    I will modify this based on the guide PHPBUILT is going to publish. But this seems to be the best practice as of now.

    5 Expired domain
    - Niche relevant
    - DA > 20
    - Built in a similar way to web 2.0s except will only link to my site. To capture maximum link juice.

    10 Manual document submission
    - Mix of links to root and inner pages. Re-purpose articles on web 2.0s
    - Related anchor text

    5 Manual article directory submission to top five sites
    - Likes of Ezine, Goarticles,
    - URL anchor text

    10 Posts on PBN (purchased)
    - Exact Match Anchor

    1 Press Release

    - Well written
    - Paid distribution using fiverr or a service from BST
    - URL + Brand linking to root

    10 High PR profiles
    - Built in a non-spammy way.

    10 Yahoo answers
    - Mix of links to root and inner pages.

    1 Video on multiple sites
    - Sites like youtuve, Vimeo, dailymotion
    - URL as anchor text

    Tier 2
    Using automation tools such has Ultimate Demon, Scrapebox, GSA or Fivver Gigs I will boost the following in tier 1

    10 Manual high-quality Web 2.0 creation:
    5 Expired domain
    10 Manual document submission
    5 Manual article directory submission to top five sites
    10 Posts on PBN (purchased) (Only if allowed, possible and not already boosted)
    1 Press Release
    10 Yahoo answers
    1 Video on multiple sites

    Spun article submission
    - UD, GSA or Fivver or a service link spindistribute.
    - Target 1000
    - Spun article (from leading article) or self created ultra spun but still readable.
    - Possible content sourced from WAC or Kontent Machine

    Web 2.0
    - Using UD, GSA or fivver
    - Target 100

    Wiki
    - Using UD, GSA or fivver
    - Target 500

    Booomarks
    - Using UD, GSA or fivver
    - Target 10-20 each page

    Comments
    - Scrape box using an auto approve list or Fiverr
    - 10K target

    Tier 3
    - Wait for 1 week to 1 month to see which tier 2 stick
    - Bookmarks and Comments (20K) to index
    - Indexing service

    PS: I already own most of the tools I have mentioned about but I do not have lists, proxies or know how of using them.

    Sounds Good to me..

    edit: I see you are just learning some of the tools, I suggest you make sure you are doing it right cause one messy blast can ruin your rather decent plan. Imagine having a lot of anchor texts like this %anchor_text% or something to that effect.

    A true authority site doesn't need to build links like that. They attract natural links simply by the way the site is structured. I think you should start by learning what an authority site actually is.

    1. Throw out that list of numbers and properties.

    2. Focus on creating a site full of content that people will actually want to interact with.

    3. Let it build naturally and see where it stands after a bit

    4. Don't be so quick to just fire links

    Yes letting natural links come is technically the best way to do it since it's really hard to get penalized with natural links. But building backlinks is a viable option to speed up the ranking process tremendously. So if I was you, I would follow that plan but heres some tips on how I would do it.

    1. Don't start building all those links on a brand new domain. I would let it age a couple weeks and then slowly start building all those links.
    2. Make sure you don't overdo exact keyword anchor text. If you follow that plan you should be solid
    3. Use those weaker links (blog comments, maybe some web 2.0's, ect) to diversify anchor text, and use the more powerful links (expired domains, PBN links) to focus on your keywords.

    Will mostly be using tools on Tier 2 and Tier 3. At least till get a hang of it.

    Thanks. I am worried that I may be going the wrong kind of links if they don't have any value.

    Catch 22 problem. I need some sort of promotion for people to find the site. The are is not where a lot of people are discussing things.

    1. The plan is to create a diversified anchor text profile.
    2. I have content. Pages are not ranking
    3. Not an area where people would naturally link to it.
    4. 9 months old domain.

    1. My domain is over 9 months old now
    2. Agree. Thanks
    3. Thats what I intend to do.

    Social signals, high quality web 2.0s and PBN that is? Imo that should do the trick to get you up in the rankings in the beginning, and once you ranked the authority does the job by itself.

    Well I guess you should stop calling your plan an authority site. That's why they call us the 2%, the rest of you just don't get it.

    This is BS. If you start from scratch, then you need to expose and promote your site. And it doesn't matter if you do it via social interactions or by building links, thus getting traffic from SE.

    Everything you think you know is BS. It's sad that you've been misled but what's important is that you start fresh and learn the difference.

    Guys quit fighting. I am aiming for a "low risk" link building method. I do realize that low-risk does not mean no-risk and people & sites who are able to get it done naturally should go that way.

    The site I am building is in my view the best in the domain, so if I get exposure, I may attract natural links. Just want to aide the process.

    Plus there are some niche people just don't link to that often: For example, industry / news site for shipping container providers companies. No blogs / communities (that I know of) focused on that.

    I would increase your brand anchors to 40%, naked urls to 30%, generic to 20% and the rest 10% you can use for keywords. Penguin is much more sensitive now to keywords. You can still rank with just naked urls/brand urls for your keywords, just make sure you on-site is tight. I've done this with ONLY automated software and the occasional high PR post and remained safe while others got slapped.

    maheshsingh, good to see you're going well with your plans. I am doing a very similar link building strategy, although I know I am not building a authority site. I know you will probably be replicating this (or something similar) for more than one website, and your enemy will be TIME! And paying for it is also not viable.

    I did the same as you; trawl the BST's for cool services I can replicate. The strategy is good IMO (regardless of what people say about authority sites), try to cut out the things that take lots of time, and try to cut out things that may cost loads of money.

    with a slightly slimmed down version of that strategy I am already on page 2 for a 22k searches keyword and I barely started on tier 2.
