    Hi guys,

    We are currently working on a 2 month old site which is an ecommerce site (not affiliate site) and we want to solely use one strategy for link building which is creating blogs for the site and drop links there, (we have some budgets)

    has anyone ever done this before and does it help serp going up? or it's not a good idea for a 2 month old site?

    Thanks

    What do you mean by dropping links there? Creating a few blogs all over the internet and link it back to your site? I don't think that works well if the blogs you created have no pagerank, it'll just be treated as link spam.

    dropping links on those blogs and pointing to my money site.

    Well, I don't agree with you, a simple test would be trying to target a less competitive keyword and create some blogs and backlinks to the page, I am sure you will see the serp going up after a while, a link is a link, also, I've seen numerous case that this works, but I don't know the details such as how fast you should build it, how much of a weight you should expect from a link.

    I mean this is basically a topic of link quality vs. link popularity, but I am asking if without the high authority links also created AND solely link popularity, would that alone help serp at all?

    We are testing it right now, and of course a link is a link and it helps, but by how much? that's what I am trying to discuss here.

    Well no doubt that it can definitely help if you anchor it. It will help you rank in certain keywords but not necessarily high. It's a good start and you can definitely build from there.

    Sounds like what your describing is almos a link push type scenario. Are you creating these 'blogs' on web 2.0 platforms like wordpress, blog.com, weebly etc?

    If so then yes, this can work, its effectiveness depends on a few things.

    1 - it must look natural
    2 - your blogs should have other content aswell, not just single post blogs
    3 - Your content should be original and therefore have some value
    4 - your blogs should also receive backlinks from other sources

    The trick really is in mixing it up, spend less time exclusively making blogs, and more time mashin up your links.

    To answer your question, yes as long as these pages get indexed.

    The key is building out from there. You can make these links a lot more valuable if you build links to those links. Think of it like a tree and your site is the trunk.

    If you build quality blogs and then link to them via bookmarking etc,e.g google finds you money links secondary not primary it can be very powerful.Use a different host for each blog,google is clamping down on this type of thing.

    Well, I was debating with my partners on the topic of backlinking the backlink pages, is this called "link pyramid method"? we are just thinking if you have the resources to use to link to your backlink pages, why not just use them and pointing to the money site?

    one way, you get the higher possibility of having google index the backlink pages.

    another way, you get higher counts of backlinks to the money site.

    that's a trade off, and it's like a 50/50 chance for me, or is it soooo much different if you do one way or another?

    Also, is there some instruction or tutorial or video to show how to PROPERLY utilizing web2.0 properties to backlink the backlink pages?

    Thanks

    OP your strategy of making web 2.0 or blogs is correct for getting backlinks and it will def help your site to perform better in SERPs...

    Although if you can make backlinks for those blogs it will further push your campaign... You can use SB or other similar software to create backlinks for your backlinks... This ensures your backlinks get indexed and pass more link juice to your main site and some times with luck and proper work you might find those feeder sites also ranking in search engines and passing traffic to your main site...

    If you don't know about it, atleast don't mislead others with information which you just made up without any experience...

    @OP..
    Yes it will work, it also depends on the backlinks to these blog themselves and they should also get indexed by G. You can try some horizontal link scheme in order to heighten the effect of it on your money site....

    Sorry but I said nothing wrong about it. If it was just creating a bunch of blogs and pointing links to his site, it wouldn't work except for maybe getting those anchored keywords indexed. All you guys did was just saying how he should build more content and backlinks to those blogs while at the same time diversify and making it look natural to make it work, which proved my original point.

    He asked whether you can get better position based solely on a high number of links, while you guys told him to increase the quality of his links. Great answers. =)

    yes, you were wrong at few things you said, let me point the out for you......

    Why not? I have ranked for many keywords solely relying on blogs and social bookmarking...

    They will still assist in SERP acsent.... All my new blog farms are 0 PR but still get my rankings to page 1-3 easily for healthy competition keywords....

    As long as you don't have some industry default, old as Adam linking scheme, I am very skeptical why this will happen....

    he never mentioned anything about doing anything to it.

    I did assume that he is going this way

    because of what he said

    while you assumed that he would build backlinks to those blogs while doing social bookmarking when social bookmarking and multiple levels of web 2.0 link wheeling isn't mentioned at all in the first place.

    Yes, I agree that it would work if he fulfilled certain conditions like what you guys suggested while it certainly doesn't make me wrong when I say that it won't work if he did just as what he said.
