    If you had 3 web 2.0s would you:

    1) Link all 3 Web 2.0s to the money site?
    2) Link two of them to one Web 2.0 that links to the money site?
    3) Link two of them to the money site and link the final Web 2.0 to one of those?

    I have an expired Tumblr and two fresh Wordpress sites and can't decide what to do with them.

    Well whatever you do with those 3 2.0s wont make much difference. Those things matter only when you are having hundreds of 2.0s.
    I would point tumblr to money site and that 2 fresh to tumblr.

    If you are going to be that paranoid just don't build any backlinks at all. Point them all to the money site, then make 30 more web 2.0s, diversify with some extra links and you have a solid foundation for a couple PBNs. Rank it using the PBNs (and the other links) and bank! :)

    Sell them and buy a couple cups of coffee. Use the energy from the coffee to rethink your SEO. As others have said, unless your niche is baby weak, three web2.0's won't likely put a dent in it. Maybe if they are 8 year old web2.0s with 250 pages each and thousands of visits a day... otherwise they sound like what is sold here on BHW everyday for $2-$5 each in bulk. If thats not the case then maybe explain a bit more here and we'll hash it out. Sounds like small potatoes though.

    Point all three to money site, create multiple url shorteners for each and carry on building links.

    Comments like this always make me laugh. People around here act as if "building an authority site" is as simple as throwing up a WP blog. It takes a lot of work and time to have what one would consider an "authority site".

    Got it cheers... It's kinda low comp. What link types do you use to diversify?

    And yeah I'm pretty paranoid lmao, I feel like Google might start slapping link types like doc shares and audio sharing as they seem rare in real link profiles. Same for profile links and comments to inner pages. Then you're just left with guest posts, web 2.0s and PBNs I believe.

    interesting reply that hints at much but as an answer it seems incomplete?


    ...whats he supposed to do once the url shorteners for each web2.0 have been built


    AND WHY?

    I guess you post them on social websites. When the Google crawler goes onto the URL shortener it is a 301 redirect, I'm assuming it passes some power from the root domain which would be quite high authority if it's something like bit.ly. I don't believe it's a technique that will last much longer for sustainable rankings though. Seems too easy to patch.

    If you ask me link all the Web 2.0s to money site. When you have more later then link them to the Web 2.0s.

    a url shortener is a 301 redirect? ahhh of course!!

    think you might have answered a different question for me to the one i posed earlier in this thread and im grateful for that - let me tell you why - ive been looking at the backlinks of a clients competitor who has circa 3,000 backlinks

    660 links are from images, 1159 are text links and 1382 are redirects and ive got to tell you when i saw how many redirects there were i had a "WTF?" moment

    like i say, i think youve just answered it, so thank you for the reply.

    I would first increase the web2.0s authority by adding several unique articles to them and building tiered links and then point to money site. But 3 would never be enough, you need more.

    by the way, for anyone who is interested in the significance of this information my client is generally ranked 4th for most kw's and their competitor is mostly ranked 2nd for the same kw's.

    my client has lots of good on page seo and internal linking whereas their competitor doesn't. my client has circa 400 backlinks - all text backlinks - compared to the mix of 3,000 backlinks the competitor has.

    i'll have a think about deploying the url shortener(s) as a result of this information. in the meantime and to get this thread back on track, the O.P. poses a reasonable question and from what i can understand of web2.0's, the low number being deployed (THREE) isn't going to cause any alarm bells to ring at google hq if theyre all pointed at the target domain, but equally, the fact that the 2 wordpress blogs are brand new means they're not going to push any juice across either, so if anything id be tempted to use them as CDN's

    install SNAP plugin on your main site (assuming its self hosted wordpress) and fire posts from there across to the wordpress.com sites via the SNAP plugin and have 'legit' backlinks pointing to your target domain from the 2 wordpress.com blogs - i think you'd get more bang for your buck that way.

    just means youve got to have content being posted semi-regularly on your target domain for this tactic to work well

    SNAP plugin is available FOC here:

    You need a lot more than 3 web 2.0s to even tickle your rankings bud.
