Why you should always give your money site a small blast...

    For years the common wisdom has been to never blast your money site...

    But always give it at least one small blast. Meaning about 500 to 1,000 AA blogs and profiles. You can go more than this, but it gets more risky.

    There's two reasons for this.

    1. It increases your IP and link diversity, just not your link juice. If you're doing no direct blasts, it's hard to get great IP/link diversity compared to an older website or one getting natural backlinks. These are ranking factors.
    2. A small blast isn't enough to get penalized unless you're terribly unlucky. You can even do major blasts and never get a penalty, because G is inconsistent.

    Not sure this is a good idea for new domains.

    I like to break my money site blasts to like 50-100 sites per day for a few weeks, after the site is around a month old. I have never been penalized, and as long as you are consistent it seems natural in my experience.

    Yeah i occasionally do something similar as well but usually drip feed the blasts over a month or so, keeping the amount fairly small still, but is handy for diversity anyway

    I do up to 5k maximum without a problem. I mainly do that to vary my anchor texts.

    Good to know that you guys are doing this without problems. I always thought that blasts to money site (even small ones) were a no-no

    I always blast the main site....make sure you hit the entire index....and better yet anchor each page to what its about.

    Really good idea. I thought any type of SB blast to your money sites was a big no.... I like the idea of drip feeding maybe 100 to 300 or so over the space of a month, etc.

    And the link diversity is a great tip as well. Interesting; gonna test...

    I also do this for all my money sites.

    But I tend to do it very slowly, avoid keyword-based blast, and when using SB, use personal or pen name as the keyword.

    It makes an impression that I'm commenting everywhere (although obviously it doesn't make sense in a 5,223 comments blog post), not trying to modify serps. I guess it minimizes the footprints.

    I have done this to my main site about 2 months ago. It actually helped me gain ranks for some keywords and kept me stable there for some time. It was around 1,000 links. I didn't ping them, just left them for G to find by itself.

    It is pretty funny how much I have read other people saying blasting main site is just dumb, risky, etc

    I agree with the people drip feeding it over the course of a month with a low amount of posts and on blogs with low OBL!

    Definitely going to do this...and i'm guessing it's also a good idea to make sure the sites PR ranges but maybe not if it's a low amount of links ?

    This sentence always make me laugh :) If you don't ping them then it doesn't mean nobody will ping them. In reality they will get pinged each and every day (if not each and every hour!) by various spammers. No offence mate!

    Yeah, good advice. Maybe try dripping it in a month's course. This also helps you diversify your anchor texts.
