    so I'm trying to get my website higher in rankings however it's a family business and I need to be completely white hat to avoid the wrath of Google!

    The other problem is that the site doesn't change much because of the type of business so really I need to do much of my SEO off site.

    At the moment I'm hammering out articles onto web 2.0 sites and linking them back to my homepage. Most advice articles online suggest having a 2nd tier of links going to my web 2.0 properties - HOWEVER if I'm doing nothing except writing unique content and posting it do I need to bother having that second tier or would I benefit more just having all my articles, blogs and sites going directly to my homepage?

    You are actually writing every 2.0 by hand? What I do is I write 1 approx 400 word article. I throw the keyword im trying to optimize for somewhere in the first paragraph, link it to my site. Then I use a spinner, spinnerchief is free. I spin the article a bunch of times, and use blog sites to post it too. Heres a link to get places to post the 2.0s http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...ree-current-web2-0-blog-list-60-websites.html

    This woulnt require much writing at all. You really only need 5-10 of those. If you wrote extra articles you can use them to submit to directories and ezinearticles. Next you want to go to the download section here and grab a big pack of PLR articles. You then want to pick one out that you can sneak a sentence in to link to your first tier 2.0s, spin that like crazy and use that same list of places to post blogs, and post somewhere between 5-10 spun versions to connect back to your first tier 2.0. Do this for each first tier 2.0. Make sure to change things up so that it looks natural. Like maybe 4 going back to 1 of your 1st tiers, and like 10 or 12 going back to the next.


    Btw you can hit those first and second tiers with anything you would like to, and dont have to worry about the wrath of google. You can even scrapebox those like crazy, as they arnt done straight to your money site you will be fine.

    Thanks so much for your help - the problem was that my family rely on the business to live on, its' no like a micro niche site that I can experiment with.

    However I think I'm giving Google too much credit... I keep forgetting that Google isn't an actual real person going through every article online checking that's it reads well enough - you can actually cut corners!! So yeah up until now I've been writing each article by hand but it's time consuming and frustrating :(

    You know it's a bit of an oxymoron to say White hat backlinking.

    You'll have to forgive me I'm totally new to all this

    Do you mean it's black hat in the sense that it's attempting to manually create something that is supposed to happen naturally to a good site?

    Any type of linking is blackhat when it's not done naturally.

    No problem on the help man thats what we are here for. I like to call this Grey Hat. We are making sure to be totally whitehat on the pages, so that google cannot ban us for anything, but creating backlinks instead of letting them happen naturally is blackhat. Technically google does have a spam team, but as long as your site is a legit business, there is no reason to worry. Besides that the odds are very slim that they will manually review yoursite anytime soon considering there are millions of sites out there.
