    I have seen absolutely everybody talk about them, but i have never understood what they are, how you make them, what they do etc.

    Im sure there are plenty of SEO noobs here wondering the same thing, so any informative posts will make this thread a success in educating me and many others who read it.

    Thanks!

    Why create a thread about it..

    Use Google.

    An example is a Squidoo Lens, Weebly, Wordpress..

    Freewebs etc.

    Web 2.0 is a term usually related to Social Networking/Social Media.

    Thanks!

    When people use web 2.0s for SEO purposes, what do they do with them? Load them up with content and put a backlink to their money site on it??

    P.S there are hundreds of thousands of threads in BHW with the word web 2.0 in. It will take me donkeys years to find out what i want.

    well why don't u ask more specific questions rather then "Oh what is a web 2.0"

    might as well ask what is a social bookmarking
    What's a backlink

    As for what they use it for as people say above use search button. Don't get spoonfed. How can u have 175 posts and not know i think you are trolling people.

    Web 2.0's can be used for buffer sites. Backlinks on them to site, backlinks through them to site. etc. Go look in the marketplace you'll find a lot of uses.

    Thanks Supamanjon!

    But as i said in the post before, there are thousands of threads with the word web 2.0 in. You search it and it will come up with loads of irrelevant crap, wasting my time! I was hoping to create a thread that was a simple, straight forward answer for me and people who also don't know the answer!

    I have got that, along with a few flames!

    Try Google. I did it for you this time.

    Query: what is a web 2.0 site
    1st result:
    Code:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_2.0
    Time it took to find the answer: 12 seconds

    Not trying to be a dick but you could have got a more complete answer for yourself in less time. By doing these things for you, no one is helping you. Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach him how to fish and...well you know the rest of the story.

    You won't find a concise definition as there isn't one. It's a vague term to save a lot of explaining. Facebook is considered web 2.0, blackhatworld is not. A blog on blogspot is a 'web 2.0 property', a reply on a blog is not. On a property you have a lot more freedom when styling and presenting content. You are a micro moderator of sorts. With time you'll be able to give the same answer as 80% of experienced IMers when they are asked whether something is 2.0 or not. The remaining 20% will fight with each other like wikipedia admins.

    Kind of like 'lesion' as a medical term.

    web 2.0 is a mix of things. its not flash, but it looks it sometimes (animations) like menues and whatnot. its not all flat and point and click like html. think rich media

    Once you feel you've had enough web 2.0 backlinks, its time to boost those. start back-linking them. As there authority increases, they'll give authority to your money site.

    Now I have a question: Can we add say via blog comments backlinks to web 2.0 properties on same pages where say we were backlinking our money site?

    Thanks
