    Hi everyone, I'm just curious about 2 things when we're talking about Web2.0s.

    1. Do you guys put the post where do you will put the Link embed on the homepage (the URL will be exactly of the propriety: www.propriety.com) or just post as a blog roll and make sure that that post is placed on the homepage (the URL will be www.propriety.com/post-name).


    2. How do you do the Distribution of the links on that Web2? A Percent of the links to homepage and some to the Post where we will place the link, or all the links to the post where link will be placed?


    3. Do you really think that to having more posts than 1 it's better? My conception about this is that even if you have more posts like 4-5, it won't help since at a manual verification you will get penalized for sure, even if you have 1 post or 5, it won't make a big difference.


    4. What additional pages do you guys use? Do you add Privacy Policy, About US, Contact US and things like that as well? )



    I'm really curious of what answers I will get and what do you fellas think about this.

    Back in the day I used to think I made my PBN sites look so real that I would be able to fool a Google manual review. Not any more. If you have maybe a couple of PBN links to a money site, yeah, maybe. But if you have 10, 20, 50? No way. A smart person, trained to look for signs of a PBN, is going to figure it out.

    With that said, I still do put more than one article on a PBN site. I make the sites look real to hopefully make them pass whatever algorithm checks Google is doing. No one knows what those checks would be, but it seems pretty simple for Google to come up with a basic list of what things a real site has. A contact form (what real site doesn't allow visitors to contact them?). A privacy or terms of service page (most real businesses want to protect themselves legally). At least a few pages of content (how many real businesses can make a sale with a single page?).

    I don't know if it's required or not, but I also add some kind of means of monetizing each PBN site. Because, how many people put time and effort into a website without trying to make some money from it? Almost no one. Include a fake ad. Even just a newsletter sign-up plug in (a lot of real sites exist just to develop mailing lists to use or sell). Something, anything, to look like it's a site that's hoping to make money (even though it isn't).

    1. I do both homepage and post page. If you're using expired Web 2.0 then put it only on the homepage.

    2. Build links to both to appear more natural, but if you have your "good" article on the homepage then that'll make it easier as you'll only need to build links to the homepage.

    3. I add more posts to look better to the Web 2.0 provider, not to look better for Google. If your competitor tries to report your Web 2.0 to wordpress, I'd feel safer having 5 articles on there instead of just 1. The Web 2.0 provider will delete your hard work if it looks like it's been set up to simply post a link to your site.

    4. Yes add all those pages, but keep it random. Don't use the exact same privacy policy on each 2.0 etc

    Pretty much what BigStar20 said. I would just like to add that you'd do yourself a favor by producing good content even for your web 2.0 properties. It's tempting to take shortcuts and use spun content. In my experience, however, taking the time to write good content proves a better investment in the long term. If you really want to spin, I suggest you take the manual route and avoid those one-click spinners.

    That really depends on what you want those web2.0 properties for. If you build them exclusively for SEO, I don't see anything wrong with spun content (especially because it saves you lots of time and money)
    If you like to rank your tier 1 sites and potentially want to drive traffic from them to your moneysite -> use handwritten content.

    I don't really try driving traffic to my web 2.0 properties. I just want to boost their relevancy. And I am of the opinion that the best way to achieve that is by writing the articles myself. I still use spun content, but never for my tier 1 properties. And by spun content I mean manually spun content. It takes time, yes. And I have enjoyed the best success by taking this route.

    For every money site I build a branded web 2,0 network that is 100% legit and white hat. Then I scrape expired web 2.0s and load the accounts into RankerX for posting. I have a pretty big network built up and it works well.

    For expired tumblrs, one trick I learned is to edit the html of the theme and use your profile pic as a link back to your money site. This will remove the tumblr redirect. This is really only works if you're doing things manually. If you have 1000 expired tumblrs it would be a real project to edit the html of every account theme.

    1. I generally point to Homepage, but sometimes I point to a specific post/page.
    2. Home page and post. Whenever I point to a post, I ensure that the web20 post and the linked post takes a direct opposite approach and many a times I "quote" some paragraph and rebut it or reword the same using a spinner.
    3. Yes. Having more than one post should be done. Who would just write one post and leave it at that? This itself is a big flag.
    4. Yes. I use all of them. To ensure long term relevancy, I 'brand' them too.

    The important thing here is to not leave any footprints. So do not follow a particular format, just vary everything.
