Hi Nick,

Would you say this technique still works in 2020?

$1 Expired Tumblr blogs –> Money Site
$5 Private blog network backlinks –> Money Site
$1 Social signals –> Money Site
$1 Traffic –> Money Site

I am going to try this on one of my local lead gen sites and I will let you know how it goes. Also, would you continue using those Tumblr blogs for other sites or are they a one use type of thing?


Hi Joseph, yes it still works in 2020. Don’t bother with the traffic, yes you can use the Tumblr blogs again to rank other sites and other pages on the same site.

Let me know how it goes, make sure the Tumblrs are indexed or they will not have any effect at all.

First of all very very informative blog. I really appreciate the help.
Quick questions. I am little confused about linking process.
Based on your other blog “Free Backlinks”. You were generated back links to tumblr, private blog etc.

But, I will in this case, all links are going to Money Site

$1 Expired Tumblr blogs –> Money Site
$5 Private blog network backlinks –> Money Site
$1 Social signals –> Money Site
$1 Traffic –> Money Site


Yes, send all your links to your money site, make sure you mix up your anchor text and you will improve your rankings.

Thank you so much for the response. I think you are doing a great job. Do you mind if I email you with couple of specific questions ? We got stuck and feel like wasting time and not getting any momentum.

Your help is already appreciated.

Sure, send me an email any time, I am happy to help 🙂

Hi Nick,

I don’t know if this is the right address. But I sent it to here

That’s the right email 🙂 I will get back to you ASAP.

Been trying to do SEO myself for a while now, wish I had seen this post before I started. I had to change a few things with the way I have been working, your guide has helped me rank higher.

Good to hear you are ranking higher, keep testing and trying and you will hit the top.

my visitors number is very less, i have followed your suggestions, its improving.but verys slow

It takes time I’m afraid, you need to stick with it. Make sure you select a good keyword to ensure all your efforts are worthwhile.

Thanks for your suggestion. It means a lot to help out like us newbies.

No problem, if you need any help just let me know.

Since last week I am feeling significant drop in my visitor count. Is there any solution to know why and how to fix it

Take a look in Google Webmaster Tools, could be done to one of many things. Maybe you have seen a drop in ranking for a specific keyword, someone may have hit your sites. You can discover the problem in Google Webmaster account 🙂

Hello Nick,

How do you check exact number of searches for keywords nowadays if planner shows only overall numbers like 1000-10000

I use Long Tail Pro but it is paid for, the best free tool to check keyword search volume right now is

I am lucky that I found rankersparadise and Nick on the web because some of the lesser known facts were brought above the surface only by Nick.

I wish Nick could have some more posts here because I have gone through every post on RankersParadise.

I want some more awesome posts loaded with some more super advanced dirty secrets that the authorities hide from us….

Hi Ankeet, I am working on some more posts right now. You will be getting some more dirty seo rank pushing secrets very soon 🙂

I’ve only recently found your site but it is a great read, keep up the good work and articles incoming !

I have a question though. For a new site which I want to rank it’s inner pages for low comp keywords should I build backlinks to the homepage as well ?

I don’t want the homepage to rank for anything because there is only all articles listed there, but I thought maybe I have to build some links to it too without any keywords just naked url generic etc. and that will help inner pages as well.

What is your opinion ?

Thanks Dimitar, I will keep delivering the content 🙂

No need to build backlinks to your homepage, it will help if you have your page flow set up correctly. If your homepage interlinks with your inner money pages then it will be good to drop some high PA backlinks to it. The juice will pass to your inner pages. However the main ranking impact will come from the backlinks that point to the inner pages. If you have time, then drop some backlinks to your homepage, however it is not going to be needed.

Is this a legitimate way to help boost my earnings on Amazon affiliate sites? I have two sites, each with three pillar articles of 2,000 words+. So far, I’ve been dropping links on forums and places like Quora. Reddit is difficult because everyone automatically assumes you’re spamming on there.

But I’d also like to use your method. I’ve only earned $0.84 so far from Amazon, but that first injection of cash is all I needed to see to understand how this kind of thing can make money. With dedicated weekly attempts at your strategy, do you think I can boost my Amazon affiliate income?

First of all read my anchor text ratio guide, then use the Web 2.0 backlink strategy to rank affiliate sites.

If you start building backlinks to your site, slow and steady of course, your site will rise in the SERPs and your Amazon commission cheques will grow.

This do it yourself guide is aimed at established sites, if you want me to tell you if it is right for your site you can send me an email with your site URL and keywords.

Hi Nick, this was very great article and I am going to use your strategy. I have one site that I am ranking now – I started last month. First I bought diversity and I jumped for my main kw on 33 position. I have 5 web 2.0 that I have created – they are not expired like from your strategy, I am planning to use them next week or something like that. I have a question for you. I need tier 2 for those 5 web 2.0 websites. What are you suggesting me? Can I use these PBN links from your article? Are they safe, because I don’t want to use them on my money website. What do you think how many of them per site is enough to get indexed?

Thanks! 🙂

Or instead of PBNs I can use expired tumblr and weebly (or wordpress) + social signals. For example 3 tumblr + 2 others + 200-300 social signals for just one web 2.0. Is that enough? 🙂

Yes, expired Tumblrs would work too…do 5 Tumblrs to each post…just drop 50 to 100 words on each Tumblr and make sure that they are already indexed in Google search, this will definitely get your new web 2.0 sites indexed. Don’t bother with the social signals to your web 2.0 sites, just do them to your money site.

Yes you can use those PBN links as tier 2 for your 5 web 2.0 sites. These PBN links are safe, I use them all the time…however there is always some risk using PBN links. If you use them to your web 2.0 sites then there is no risk at all to your money site. This service would be good for you, you can do 8 PBN backlinks to each web 2.0 site using this gig only….you can supply many URL and keywords 🙂

Thanks for the answer, Nick! 🙂 I will use those PBN links as tier 2 for my web 2.0 sites. It’s much easier and that will be the best test of those PBNs. Thanks again! I will leave review here if someone is interested for that service.

Yeah definitely let us know how it goes.

Yes, bounce rate. 1 month old domain, won’t google penalize the site with what I showed you?

It’s unlikely.

hello, thanks for your great tuts here, what can you say about this analytics, am really new to this all and wont want to get spam problems from google again.

What do you want to know? How old is the site? Bounce rate is very low but so are your number of visitors, the obviously does not get any organic search traffic yet.

Hello Nick,

Another interesting post.

Can we do this strategy while working on weekly building of Web 2.0, PBN and social media links? Is this strategy a once off strategy or ongoing ?

I don’t want to over build.


This is an ongoing strategy to build the backlinks nice and slow and steady. This is something you can do every week along side most other strategies. You can add Web 2.0 and PBN links along side this method, index the backlinks slowly, mix up your anchor text and you will be set to rank 🙂

Thanks Nick! Your the BEST!!

Keep you posted on outcome.


Okay….looking forward to it 🙂

I love all of your content. Can you please do a guide on how to effectively use Senuke for doing your own SEO? Also is it advisable to use Senuke? If yes, why? If no, why not? Thanks!

Thanks Shannon….I am just preparing to do a tutorial using the Money Robot software. I have most ranking success with web 2.0 backlinks, Money Robot automates the process….build web 2.0 tiered links….does social signals and even pulls content and spins it to make it unique for you plus much more..I will reveal all in the tutorial which I am about to start work on. Money Robot and Senuke cost the same per month…however you can actually get Money Robot for a one off fee unlike Senuke. Money Robot is completely web 2.0 focused and is a great seo tool if you can afford it. I will try and fit an Senuke tutorial in if I can 🙂 You can manage your PBN with Senuke and blast tiered links to them to power them up.

Ok. Thanks for your reply. I will really like to see a Senuke tutorial here because I know they have been out for a long time and they just released the latest version fit for 2016. There are no proper tutorials or anything for Senuke so I want to compare and contrast and see which one to go with.

Thanks for this guide bro. SEO is not easy task without the guide of a pro blogger like you.

I’ve spent some hours on your blog, extracting and learning.

its high time I apply those tricks and see how it goes.

I will check other posts also… thanks

No problem, it’s time to put it into action and start improving your rank and most importantly your income 🙂

This plus the in-depth article on web 2.0 links is a killer combo.

You don’t find some of those 1,500 social signal packages might send off spammy warnings to google?

Yeah, it works for me.

I have not had any problems with the social signals so far…always get great results using them.

Hey, first I would like to thank you for your amazing guide I really don’t have the words to thank you enough for your valuable content. Please I have one question about building links and if you have ever tried to rank multiple pages at the same time for different keywords. I know we have to focus on one thing but the question is: let’s say I have 5 articles published on my site, what if I build it slowly and steady on the long run and use the same strategy u showed here for every page I have which are 5 pages with fiver unique articles. would that be safe ? if not I suppose the only solution for this is to create another website as you did with your other website. Thanks in advance

I quite often rank multiple pages at the same time for different keyword. The best option with link building is always slow and steady, doing this strategy for 5 pages on the same site would definitely work.

If i have just taken up an seo project and I want to check on which google page the website is ranking for certain keywords, how do i go about? I did check on Rank Tracker tool for a number of keywords that are used on the site but it says ‘Not in top 50’. If I want to know on which page it is currently then how to check? I want to know this so that I can track the progress as I do seo for the website.

You can use free version, pop the URL in there and click on the “organic keywords” tab in the top menu and you will see every keyword that your site is ranking for and in what position they lie in.

I blog frequently and I seriously appreciate your information. This article
has really peaked my interest. I’m going to take a note of your blog and
keep checking for new information about once per week.
I subscribed to your Feed too.

This do it yourself seo guide will certainly help improve your ranking. Thanks for stopping by Debs.

Hello, i buyed the traffic from seoclerks and it is so bad. People is only staying like 0-10 seconds in my website. So bad…

Which gig did you use Pedro? Could you post the link here. The gig that I recommend always works great for me, they have long 2 to 4 minute visit duration’s and move through 4 to 5 pages, bounce rate shoots down too below 40 and 30%.

I used your link

Ah, I don’t normally experience any problems with that gig, it has great reviews too. There are other providers on seo clerk that you might want to try. Let me know if you find any good ones 🙂

Finnaly a good read Thanx.. 🙂

Glad you enjoyed it, let me know when you put it into action and how it goes 🙂

I want to work with you but my websit’s are arabic, how you can help me ?
Will you insert my anchors in arabic letters in your english article?
Or you can insert only links?
I have 4 websits all are with arabic language.
Also, I think that your social signals service will not working with me, will it?
Waiting your replay urgent.

Hi Zu, I don’t offer any seo services for sale here on this site, I only recommend other peoples seo gigs for sale on the SEO Clerk site that I have used myself. You can contact the gig sellers over at seo clerks to find out if the social signals gig will work for Arabic sites.

Hello Nick,

Great article, I love how you made such a daunting task so simple in link building.

I have been following your method with the Tumblr links, blog links and social media mentions. I saw a great rise in the ranks ( 5th on page #1 ) but recently experienced a 7 position down drop ( second page )

I then have been buying the website visits, do you think it’s because of bounce rate that the website had a huge drop? ( the bounce rate was around 67% )

Do you suggest any ideas for me to achieve the rankings I originally had?

Thank you.

Hi Shannon,

When you start building backlinks to a site you will experience what is known as the Google dance, your page will move up and down the SERPs a lot. The key is to stick with it, set yourself a 3 month ranking strategy as shown on my web 2.0 backlinks page. If you build the backlinks at a steady rate over 90 days you will hot the top spot if you have the correct keyword to focus on and of course all your on page is optimised.

How long have you been building the backlinks for?

If you have just started I would stop buying the traffic for now and focus on a 3 month ranking plan using expired and new web 2 backlinks combined with some Doc share and image share backlinks.

If you need a more detailed analysis of what you need to do, just send me an email.

Thanks Nick,

I think I might send you an email, thank you for your insight so far.


No problem. Email me anytime 🙂

I don’t quite understand why writing content is so important if the top of the line spinners can do such a good job now days? Would you recommend any spinners for the 1st tier?

I don’t use spinners for tier 1. I treat all backlinks that I create as an asset, I like to write the content myself so that it has some value. This way the content is guaranteed to get indexed and stay indexed.

Thanks… Do you worry about your VA’s stealing your system details from you?

No, it’s only what I reveal here on Rankers Paradise. The system does work, I just wanted to offer a service for you guys so that you have time to write content for your money site and leave the seo work to someone else knowing that it is going to get done in the right way 🙂

Thanks for the info! Do you have a maintenance guide that goes over the ongoing work you do for the tier1 links, social, and traffic? Also do you have a visual diagram for your DIY method described on this page?

I don’t have a maintenance guide. I just keep track of rankings using Rank Tracker software, if my no. 1 ranking drops I will do another round of backlinks. You could fire 5 expired Tumblr blog backlinks to a page every month if you want to, just to keep rankings at the top. I find for low competition keywords ranking holds for a long time. You see, when you hit the top spot, you find that backlinks come naturally and you do not need to build them yourself anymore 🙂

I don’t have a visual diagram for my DIY SEO method. I should probably do one, don’t have enough time at the moment. I am training VA’s my ranking system, with the possibility of selling the service to you guys if you want it. Not sure yet, see how it develops, might just use the VA’s on my own sites.

nick u are star

🙂 Thanks.

oh hi Nick,

for new sites with new domain,(not expired domain) we should manually create the web2 stuff right?

can i start to build the link on day 1 once i set up the site?if need to wait then how long is it?

No more than 5 links per day like what u teach?

And usually to start the hanky panky expired tumblr,pbn,socal signal blast after how long?(abt 2 months?)

By thwe way to play safe,whats your advice if i use pbn and social signals blasting to tier1 (the web2 sites) rather than to my money site directly?That means using pbn and socual signals as tier2.

seriously speaking,please do not scold me.i kinda worry the services because its way too cheap (cant help but doubt the quality especially the pbn and socal signals and expired tumblr $1??)Thats why i like to test it out as tier 2 links instead.

i think u got a kid here pestering you and please dont get annoyed LOL.

Thank You

Hi Jeff, yes you can build backlinks from day one to a new site. I always start off with web 2 backlinks, 5 links a day will be fine as long as you mix up the anchor text.

To a new site I stay away from PBN backlinks. Just follow my web 2.0 backlinks ranking schedule, 10 expired web 2s in your first month together with social signals will work.

Second month you can build the new web 2.0 link wheel, which will be 16 backlinks to your money site. You can also throw in 5 Doc share backlinks too.

Month three get back on the expired Tumblr backlinks, add 15 more of those.

Keep track of your ranking, use Rank Tracker at the end of each month to check that you are in line with my schedule.

Remember to rank no. 1 it takes around 3 months, do not rush it.

If you are not no. 1 after 3 months you can then try some PBN backlinks to a new web site, this will give it that final boost up the SERPs that you will be after.

Hi Nick. i revisit this post again.
Just to confirm, expired domains for a new site is it ok?i mean setting up a site but buying an expired domain for my new affiliate project.

Btw, for domain selection, if the site is say, a tech blog with relevant backlinks, is it ok to buy and rebrand as my new site?

What about the backlinks that are linked to the tech blog?(they are irrelevant to my niche.)

I ve read before it doesnt matter whether links are relevant to your niche as long as they are non spammy (no porn,foreign languages, spammy blog comment, etc)
And the link juice will still pass to my new rebranded site?

So if this is the case, then why i still need to build backlinks like your DIY guide for my new project?

Kinda confused here. so to speak, your DIY guide is for aged site?

My common sense tells me it seem so. its not for a new domain but aged domain with powerful metrics.

So is one dumb to register own domain with buying an expired one?

Is your rankersparadise an expired domain you bought and you use the tactics herein to rank?

Please pardon my ignorance. i just want to clarify coz i starting an affiliate niche soon. To buy or not to Buy?(expired domains)

Thank you again.

Expired domains are great if you can find one with a good backlink profile. Just be sure to do your homework before you go ahead and buy an expired domain, many will be on the Google blacklist and will not re-index in the SERPs because they have been spammed with many exact match anchor texts from poor domains.

When buying an expired domain check the backlink profile with SEO SpyGlass, make sure exact match anchors are low and URL anchors and random words are high.

I would always buy a niche relevant expired domain, but I know that you can re-brand them as long as the backlink profile is okay.

My DIY guide is not just for aged sites, you can use it on new sites too, just build the backlinks slowly.

You can use a new domain for your niche site, however you get a head start if you can find a decent expired domain with backlinks already.

Rankers Paradise is a new domain, I wanted a brand for this site. I was not interested in an expired domain for this site because I wanted to generate the backlink profile myself. Whether or not I go for an aged domain all depends on the project.

This will be your tactic:

Take a look for an expired domain on and get a niche relevant domain with a good backlinks profile.

If you can’t find anything good enough then go for a new domain. I always like to Brand my sites, Google loves a brand, I make sure part of my keyword is in there too. You can check out to come up with a branded domain name for your new site.

Going with an aged domain will really rest on if you can find one with good backlinks for your budget.

Hey Nick,

Quick question for you… do you know of any reason why a low competition keyword would get stuck on page 5-6? I’ve built 50+ links to it (expired web 2.0s, bookmarks, niche relevant comments), used the relevant long-phrase anchor technique, only 1 exact match… all that… and it’s been 1.5 months and it doesn’t seem to want to move at all.

The keyword has a 22 competition score in Keyword Revealer and the guy sitting at #3 for it has a pretty new site (DA only 14) and only 12 backlinks built. My content is also better for it.

I can’t seem to figure out why it won’t move.

Hi Brad,

Are all those backlinks indexed?
The site sitting at no. 3 might have a secret PBN pointing to it where the crawlers have been blocked. Use the PBN Hunter to find out if they have more links that you do not know about.

There are many variable to consider here. I can’t be precise without your keyword and URL.

You can email them to me if you want to.

What are the quality of the 12 backlinks? Pop the URL into SEO SpyGlass, visit the 12 sites and note down their PA and the amount of backlinks pointing to them. This is what you have to beat.

If you are stuck on page 5 your backlinks can’t be indexed.

Just went through and checked all the backlinks… about 20 aren’t indexed. I’ve put them all through Link Centaur before and it says they were crawled. And some of these are 1 1/2 months old.

What can I do to get them indexed? That’s a long time for these to not get indexed. And all of them have a good amount of unique content so it shouldn’t be having any issues like that.

For some reason LinkCentaur isn’t working as well as it used to.

Just Google “submit URL to Google” and pop your URL in there and submit. They will get indexed within a few minutes, I do this every time now. I use many different Google accounts, which is a bit annoying to set up.

Submit URL to Google

That sucks. Oh well, tools come and go sadly. I only have 3 Google accounts, but I’m submitting them a few at a time and that does seem to be working for getting them indexed. Hopefully that’ll help.

Gonna have to go back and check the other ones I’ve been working on as well. Not had much luck with this so far which is unfortunate. But maybe that’s due to the backlinks not getting noticed on my other pages as well.

I hope that’s all it is. That would be fantastic if that’s the only issue.

3 Google accounts will do. When you get them indexed you will certainly see a rise in your ranking, it will take a few weeks before you see any results. I always keep track of which links have and have not been indexed. Some don’t get indexed at all, so I just replace them with another post, be it a Tumblr or PBN link.

Your ranking will improve when you get the links indexed. Let me know how you get on.

Yeah, literally every link I do the URL submit on is getting indexed within a few minutes. I guess I’ll have to start keeping a “INDEXED/NOT-INDEXED” column on my backlink spreadsheets to keep an eye on that.

I’ll keep trucking along and report back in a couple weeks. Hopefully by then I’ll have made some decent progress.

Cheers for pointing out the indexing to me, Nick. Just after going through and submitting all the backlinks to the add to Google thing yesterday I’ve seen big movement today. Jumped from page 6 to page 2 to page 3. Clearly doing the Google dance, but that’s a much more positive outcome than I was having before.

Going to keep building these links and making sure they get indexed for the other keywords I’m chasing as well. Things are definitely looking up now.

They will settle on page 2 I would think. As you build the backlinks make sure you submit them right away and keep a log of all the ones that have been indexed. I like to color the links green when indexed, leave them black when not indexed. This way you can easily see what needs to be indexed.

If they don’t get indexed right away, leave it a few days and then add to Google again. If that does not do it just do a backlink to it from Pinterest or Google Plus, which works every time.

Things will improve as you keep building the backlinks, now you know how important it is for the big G to know that your backlinks exist.

Keep going with the anchor text profile that I suggested and you will hit the no. 1 spot. It works for me, I know it will work for you if you keep going as I have explained earlier.

It’s a game of patience, if you are not no. 1 after 3 months then you need to hit it with some serious PBN links that are used solely for pushing ranks. I will let you know where you can get them from if they are needed. They are not cheap, so I only recommend them if you are stuck at spot 2 or 3. In most cases they are not necessary.

Let me know how it goes.

Yeah, I’m building tier 2 links to them all regardless for better indexing / boosting the link juice from them. I use a PBN blogpost service on BHW for that. I’ve used this guys service for years as tier 2 and it works well every time.

But I will be building up my collection of expired web 2.0s as well. Definitely need a lot of them to rank all these pages I have on my sites.

Another little twist I usually throw in is writing up unique articles and posting them on niche-relevant community sites that allow users to have blogs. I’ve ranked sites with that technique alone in some cases.

Definitely going to spend some time building links to all of these URLs I have sitting on page 2-3 of Google. A good boost to those should definitely land me on page 1 and provide a good boost to my traffic in income.

I’ll keep going. Hopefully I keep seeing positive results. Just gonna keep cranking out posts till my fingers bleed.

Build those links steadily to those sites sat on page 2. When your fingers start to bleed go to the voice to text online dictation software…LOL. I know people use it to speed things up. In the next few months you will have some of those sites sitting at the top of page 1. Keep on writing… 🙂

Hey thanks for the info can you please email me at I wanted to take five min of your time with some help on ranking my page had a couple of questions thanks.

Yeah, I find it easier to just type honestly.

And I may have jumped the gun when I said something about big movement. The one keyword seems to be sticking to page 4 now. Only a 1 page jump. May just need to give it a couple weeks for the real jump to kick in, though. It’s only been a day since the backlinks actually got indexed now.

Hey Nick,

Do you have Skype by chance? If you don’t mind giving it out, that’d be a lot easier for questions and such. Or even email. I know you’ve mentioned emailing you, but I can’t seem to find your email on your site anywhere.


You can email me at: . I don’t have Skype, been asked that quite a few times lately, maybe I should get myself on there. You can email me any time, I check everyday without fail.

Awesome. Shot you an email. And, yeah, Skype is a pretty common messenger in this industry.

Very motivational and informative, excellent job! Thank you so much for this guide into SEO 🙂

No problem, put it into action and start ranking.

Thank you Nick. you are so busy and yet you left no questions unanswered.
Salute to you!
And i m really impressed there isnt any affiliate links to buy tools like keyword research.
You Truly understand a newbie struggle which is budget control.
The services you recommend are also ridiculously cheap yet i checked out the links and tonnes of positive reviews.
I have bookmarked your site and as i said b4

I look forward to your course and to enrol and thats my way of saying thanks.
I mean it man!

Yep I certainly know what it is like trying to rank sites on a tight budget, it does get easier when those affiliate sales start coming in and you can outsource some of your work load.

I only recommend services that I have used, tested and know work.

I’m not sure I have time to write a course, however my next post will be something special. When I get time to write it that is. 🙂

Nick. ThaNk You. its enlightenment for me when you mentioned if too many niche stores go for a review site and vice versa. Makes a lot of sense. i never thought of that.
I always think if serps showing more review sites i should go with the flow.
By the way, my Kudos to you for advising me to manually create the web2 stuff first for a new site, not rushing to buy pbn or high pr tumblr and immediately link to my money site.
This advice is Golden for me.
Imagine if i am lazy and just bought web2 high pr and pbn and blast to my new site?With the bought social signals as well
I will cry for sure.
Its really nice of you to warn the ignorant new site owners.
So many sites talk about buying high pr web2 and pbn but, A big But, didnt mention its supposed to be for an age site, at least 3 months old.
How dangerous it would be for newbies if they thought they can rank immediately for their new sites?
You definitely had got me enlightened. i m going to follow this guide step by step written by you.
Thanks a lot Nick.

No problem Jeff. I am only too happy to help. Google wants diversity in it’s results, too much of one thing is not good. Always go with something different. Working slowly on new sites is the key to success, build backlinks too quickly and your ranking will not last long term.

Don’t throw money at SEO services if you don’t have to. You have the right idea, do not be lazy. Build high quality new web 2 backlinks and they will pay off for you. Ranking is a long term goal, so take your time and it will happen if you have selected the right keywords and made a plan on how to get the backlinks that you need to rank.

Good to hear you are going to follow my guide, it works for me.

Good luck.

Nick. sorry its me again.
I folloeed your guide to use moz and spy glass and pretty confident to outrank two e comm sites ( amazon and walmart,) so nw whats spinning me is to cteate a niche store or blog site.
Sorry for the trouble.

No problem Jeff, take a look at the search results pages. If there is a lot of review sites go for a niche store. If there are many stores go for a review site.

For my Amazon and ebay niche stores I use Prosociate. It makes your wordpress affiliate site look just like a real store, it’s awesome. You can even spin the descriptions on the product pages to get them indexed with ease. It’s not free, but well worth the price.

Hi Nick. What do you think of a commercial keyword which shows all serps on pg1 are e coomerce drop shipping sites ? Say 8 are niche related and 1 amszon 1 walmart?
Shall i creatr a niche store( affiliate links) or like a blog style type with quality contents for the audience?
Because i read that Google does givr Ecommerce sites a priority for commercial keywords.
I kinda worry if i create a blog like site Google will categorize my site with review site which aint a lot of searches monthly
Please pardon my ignorance.
Thank you.
I m addicted to your info by the way and i had subscribee to your email.

I would take a look at the backlinks pointing to those sites. Can you match the quantity and quality of those backlinks? It’s easy to match the content, you need to get as many quality backlinks as the top ranking sites.

I use niche stores and blog review sites, if the search engine results pages are congested with review sites, then I will create an Amazon affiliate store. If there are many stores but very little review sites, I would go with with a review site. Google wants a diverse range of sites in the top 10 results, if there isn’t any of one kind then most definitely go for that option.

Thank’s for stopping by. Glad I can be of help.

Hi. Nick. What do you mean with Amazon Affiliate store? I don’t know about it. Do you have any example of this kind of site?

An Amazon affiliate review site is different to an Amazon affiliate store. An Amazon store looks like a regular ecommerce site, you would not know that it is an Amazon affiliate store, you can add products to cart, you only get referred to Amazon for the payment when you checkout. Go to the Prosociate WordPress Plugin site and take a look at their blog section to find some sites that use this plugin to create Amazon affiliate stores.

Just wanted to say fantastic blog! I will use your guide to rank my site, thanks for the free info it has been a great help.

Thanks Curt, glad you find the site useful. Keep checking back for more ranking ideas.

Thanks for providing this great information. There are few doubts, if you would clear those i shall be very pleased;

1). You have mentioned 7 tumblr backlinks, some free backlinks and 5 PBN backlinks. There are nearly 20 links and out of 20, five links are exact match anchor. This will not make it over optimized anchor text ratio? I have heard exact match should be less than 1%. Please specify the ratio.

2). Do we need to send backlinks to the homepage also or just to specific posts?

3). I have a site over 200 posts. I am trying to rank my one of post who was at 8th page of Google. I hit with exact mach anchor and within one week it land at page 3. It then drop to page 4. I now started again building backlinks one month ago and send one exact match and 10 to 12 other mix of backlinks but could not get any improvement. Please guide what should i do.


Hi Jeff, great question.

1). There is no specific ratio, I have used a different ratio on every project that I have done, the main thing to keep in mind is to not to over do exact match anchor text and you will be okay. The best thing to do is to pop the top ranking site URL into SEO SpyGlass, from there you will see the anchor text used in their backlink profile, you can then take note of what percentage they use for exact match keyword anchor text to rank no. 1 for that keyword. Everything I advise here I have tried and tested and it works for me. I do all the free backlinks without exact match keyword anchor. I do these first and I only use my URL and other words like “click here” and “go here” as the anchor text. You can add as many of these free backlinks as you require, they are endless, use them to diversify your anchor text, you can have a 1% exact keyword anchor text match using this system if you want to.
2). When I research a site I have a bunch of keyword that I know I am going to rank for, then I have some filler keywords that I will not do SEO for, I just use them to build out the site. Then I will calculate which keyword my time is best spent on first, then I will build backlinks to that particular post until I have achieved a decent first page ranking. Then I will move onto the next post on my site and build backlinks to that post. Start off where you calculate the money to be, where your time will be best spent.
3). I can’t really be exact unless I see your site. You can email it to me with your keywords and I can help from there. It’s all about how competitive the keyword is. When you first start to build backlinks to a page your ranking will move around a lot, take a look at the kind of backlinks the top ranking sites have for your selected keyword using SEO SpyGlass and move on from there. You need to find a keyword to focus on that you know is going to be profitable and easy to rank, that will be the best way to use your time. If you want me to take a look for you just drop me an email using the contact page. I will be happy to help.

Thanks for stopping by Jeff.

There really is money to be made doing this as I have confirmed over the
last few years (even for those who only do it in your
free-time like I do).

Sure is Nina, I started off building affiliate sites in my spare time and developed this seo strategy to rank no. 1 on Google search. It works for me and will for you too. It takes a bit of work, but if you choose the correct keywords your labour can pay off big time.

Some genuinely interesting information, well written and broadly user pleasant. I will use this do it yourself seo guide to improve my ranking. I am excited to get started right away.

Glad you enjoyed it, get cracking with the guide and you will be ranking no. 1 in no time at all.
