    Tier 1 link building refers to establishing links between various websites and the website you are trying to optimize for search engines. This is the most common type of link building.

    Example: Website A -> SEO Target Website

    In some cases, especially when building links that might not be considered high quality, it makes sense to build the links to an intermediary website before establishing a link from that website and on to the website you are trying to optimize for search engines.

    Example: Website A -> Website B -> SEO Target Website

    Tier 3 link building is the same concept, just with a third layer of intermediary websites to further negate the risk of passing on 'bad link juice' to the website you are trying to optimize for search engines.

    Example: Website A -> Website B -> Website C -> SEO Target Website

    Google "Matthew Woodward Tiered Link Building" .. He has given a detailed list and though the posts are pretty old, you can still get some value out of it..

    • Tier 1 link building is establishing the links between various websites and the website you are trying to optimize for search engines. This is the most common type of link building.
    • When building links that might not be considered high quality, it makes sense to build the links to an intermediary website before establishing a link from that website and on to the website you are trying to optimize for search engines. Such link building are called three tier link building
    • Tier 3 link building is similar to two tier but with a third layer of intermediary websites to further negate the risk of passing on 'bad link juice' to the website you are trying to optimize for search engines.
