    Hi everyone


    We all know that GSA is an automated link building tool and can be pretty powerful if used correctly. I want to use it for my money site which I have built white hat links to, but I DONT want to risk getting penalized by google for using GSA

    Would building links with GSA to a completely separate site then linking to my money site from it help reduce the risk? The plan is that if I were to ever get penalized, I'd simply remove the link from the second site and my money site would return to how it was prior. (I'd have total control of both sites, but one used for GSA links so that I avoid linking directly to my moneysite)

    Thanks in advance bros

    First, There is nothing called as "White Hat Links".

    Secondly, Gsa Links on the separate site which links to your Money site becomes your Tier 1. You might want Multiple Tier 1 Sites and Power them up with GSA for better results.

    It is Kind of PBN, Powering them all with GSA links will leave footprints.

    1) I understand, I actually just wrote white hat so people understood that the links built weren't automated or spammy :)
    2) If G were to penalize the tier 1 site, would my money site take a beating as well? Assuming I remove the link soon after the penalty kicks in

    The good thing with GSA is that if you keep the projects saved, there's an option to remove all links it created.

    There is always a risk involved, If you go and Build links to your tier 1 in full swing, They will get penalized. And ultimately that may affect your Money site.

    It is better to use GSA links in Tier 3.

    Tier 1: Web 2.0, Blog Posts, Article Directories (Contextual Links)
    Tier 2: Wiki, Bookmarks, Comments Etc.

    This Tier Link building Strategy is 2013.

    People are using PBNs these days.

    You can do that - I would suggest you link out to your money site once the new site starts ranking. Once it's ranking for anything, you'll know Google trusts it, the rest is up to the links built to it.

    Well, I'm not even using tier 3.. and this is my results for 10 web 2.0's for one specific keyword that has never budged once.. after almost 1 year..

    tier 1: high pr web 2
    tier 2: contextual links blast

    For a 200k high competition keyword, you cannot say that tiered link building does not work.. in 2 weeks after link building this is the result that I've gotten, and it's going to go much higher in few more weeks, it'll reach page 2. but once it does, only PBN or sape will push it to the first page.

    GSA still works well, it all depends on how well versed you are with the tool.

    I use it for Tier link building every day, even use it to build my T1's (contextual links focusing on brand and URL). GSA can even be used to power up my buffer sites (Money Site <- Buffer Site <- GSA tier linked building).

    In your case I would definitely use GSA to building links to my buffer sites and if there's any issues, jut remove the link on the buffer sites.

    There's no fixed set of rules that you can follow in SEO. The experts here speak from experience and what's worked for them. Chances are that it may work for you too if you do it right. Maybe not.

    Coming to GSA, since its the money site, you'd be better off controlling the links you throw at it. Keep automated links for the lower tiers. And yes, ensure that you can remove anything you point at the site.
