    Hi guys/girls,

    I have been looking into Web 2.0 Properties a lot the past few weeks. We all know that their rootdomain has a High PR as well as DA etc.

    So in theory should they not be easier to rank when applying the same onsite/offsite seo to them as you would with your own site? Why don't more people use them as their main/money site for ranking?

    The only reason I can thing of is the design and look and of course the URL that looks 'cheap'.
    Your thoughts and input on this subject as well as experience doing this would be awesume.

    Thanks :)

    i seen local businesses do this, the thing is it gets annoying seeing these pages instead of "real websites" on the first and second pages just taken up space with a blogger or wordpress or other kind of site.

    But it friggen works some people can make it nice, others don't give a crap and just do it for a back link and the 2.0 actually goes to page 1.

    You get much less control with them compared to your own site and they are harder to sell if you decide to do so.

    Thank you thisismymp3 for the input mate... I want to actually give this a go and see how good it works for a fairly competitive keyword + added links, social signals to it....

    Wordpress is PR9 and the top one if I am not mistaken right? I also think its the easiest to customize???

    I'm aware of a BHW member who makes 30k+ a month on strictly web2.0s. They do rank better then freshly purchased domains, and using them as your money site isn't a bad idea.

    Keep them frequently updated with fresh content. NO SPUN CONTENT, all manually 100% unique content must be used. Basically just treat them like its your own website.

    even if the root domain is a pr9 your getting a fresh subdomain, in theory it will rank better then a fresh website.

    The problem is you don't have any control!

    The web 2.0 MODs could delete your blog and account at any time.

    But if you are prepared to take that risk then go for it :)

    that's the point i now remember why i never went that route, as soon as you start putting sales stuff, or if it looks to much like a click bank offer page they take it down without warning.

    I know the details about this. There are SOME people do this html pages. The reason why they get ranking, you can see the backlinks of this page are huge. The way of this method is hack the root domain, and upload the html to the root. And then flood the backlinks to the page. just like that. but it get ranking fast and get lost quickly ....

    Use a web 2.0 like Weebly where you can upgrade to the pro version or something. If you pay them they won't delete your blog. About the design part, if you play a little bit more with the poor customization they got you can get some really nice kick ass design. People choose web 2.0s to rank because they can take a large amount of backlinks without getting a penalty (don't know if this is still the case, haven't done this since summer) and they can be ranked very fast. I used to rank web 2.0s in 3-4 weeks and I'm not talking easy keywords.
