Web 2.0 Backlinks Ranking Strategy

Rank no.1 with Web 2.0 BacklinksUsing Web 2.0 backlinks is a super easy and quick way to rank low competition keywords.

To prove how well it works I am going to rank this page using Web 2.0 backlinks.

To find out my complete ranking strategy go to my do it yourself seo guide.

If you really want to know how to make a passive income online you should check out Online Dimes.

I owe this strategy to Franklin, it was his site that set me off to ranking success.

Today I am going to show you how to:

  • Find easy to rank keywords

  • How to create content that will rank

  • Use expired Web 2.0s to rank number 1

  • How to index your backlinks

You can simply sign up for Web 2.0 sites for free, add some content with a backlink and you are good to go.

The only problem with this method is new Web 2.0 sites do not have any Page Authority or existing backlinks.

The fastest way to rank is to use expired Web 2.0 sites that already have page authority and backlinks.

You can find these yourself for free using G Scraper. This takes time, and you need to know a little about what you are doing. Not to mention the G Scraper learning curve.

The Web 2.0 Ranking StrategyThe quickest way to get things done is to buy expired high page authority Web 2.0 sites.

You can buy expired Web 2.0 sites using the links below. You can get 7 high page authority Tumblr blogs for just $1.

While you wait for your order to be delivered you can be getting on with writing your content for them.

In the Web 2.0 packages you will get at least 7 expired Web 2.0s with high page authority and existing backlinks.

People will scrape and deliver you expired Web 2.0s rather cheap. Some will even register them for you and provide you with all the log in details. Saves you loads of time.

You can then use these expired Web 2.0s to rank your websites. I use my private blog network of Web 2.0 sites to rank and bank for many affiliate and adsense sites.

You can use each Web 2.0 to create backlinks to more than one money site. They are a great little investment.

Expired high PA Web 2.0 backlinks are the cheapest and fastest way to rank web sites.

This is the perfect ranking strategy for the individual site webmaster, or small business owner who has a small SEO budget.

Find Easy To Rank Keywords

One super easy way to find keywords that are easy to rank is to use keywordrevealer.com.


I also like to use KWFinder.com instead of Keyword Revealer or along side it. If I had to recommend just one tool for keyword seo competition score analysis I would go for KW Finder.

First of all, set up your Keyword Revealer account:

Keyword Revealer is free to use, you get seven free keyword analysis each day. For this process that is all we are going to require.

Log in and select “Tools”, then select “Keyword Tool” as pictured below:

Keyword Revealer Tools

Then enter a seed keyword based on your niche, select location and then hit the submit button.

Enter a word to describe your niche

Now you will have a whole load of potential keywords based around your niche. Pick one that you like the look of and hit the evaluate button.

Click evaluate keyword

I like the look of “Web 2.0 Backlinks”, the evaluate button will let us know how difficult it is to rank for this keyword.

Web 2.0 Backlinks has a low keyword difficulty

The keyword difficulty is 15, which is extremely low, and is therefore ideal for this ranking tutorial.

Backlinks to top ranking sites

As you can see, Keyword Revealer analyses the top ten ranking websites in Google for your selected keyword.

Not one of the top ten sites have the keyword in the Title, Description or H1 tags. Also, page authority is low, as are the number of backlinks to the top ranking sites.

I am certain that aged Web 2.0 backlinks with high page authority will rank my site number one on Google for the keyword “Web 2.0 Backlinks”.

You should also work out how much money your keyword is worth in monetary terms. There is no point building backlinks for 3 months to hit the top spot only to earn $3 a month from it.

How easy was that?

Now we have a super easy keyword that we are confident we can rank number one for. The Web 2.0 backlinks strategy works for Keyword Difficulty 30 and below. It will even work for harder keywords, but I have not tested that.

Before we start building backlinks we need to make sure our content is fully optimized to beat the competition.

You will find below details of how you need to optimize your money site content. This has to be done before you start to build backlinks.

How To Optimize Your Content

Backlinks are a highly important ranking factor, however we need to make sure our content is optimized first.

Keyword Revealer has given us some big tips on how to optimize our content.

This is what needs to be done:

  • Make sure your content is focused around a particular keyword. Mention the keyword in the top, middle and bottom of your content. Do not over do Keyword density, I am always around or below 1%. This post is 0.6%.

  • Top ranking sites have long content posts. Make sure your content is in depth and around or more than 2000 words long.

  • Put images in your content. One image should have your keyword in the ALT tag.

  • Put your keyword in your main (H1) heading.

  • Have your exact keyword in your URL extension.

  • Put the keyword in the Title and Description Tags.

  • Have at least one outbound link to an authority site in your niche. (Do not link to a competitor for your keyword)

I always do some internal links to my new content. Go through the rest of the content on your site and link to your new content if related words appear in the text. I sometimes add to existing posts to get an internal link to my new content.

That’s it. Stick to these six simple steps and you will certainly rank number one in the search engines with the powerful Web 2.0 backlinks we are now going to build.

Build Web 2.0 Backlinks

Now it is time to build the powerful Web 2.0 Backlinks to our awesome highly optimized content.

The key is to use aged high page authority Web 2.0 sites. You can use new Web 2.0 sites, this takes a lot longer because you will need to power them up with backlinks.

The fastest way to rank in Google is to buy aged Web 2.0 sites. Scraping them yourself takes time.

Some people just use Tumblr blogs, I like to use a mix. You can buy aged Web 2.0 sites really cheap. You can use them to rank more than one site, they are great value for money.

Try one of the guys below to get started. The lower the keyword difficulty the less Web 2.0 backlinks you are going to require to rank number one in Google.

What you need:

$1 will get you an expired Tumblr blog with at least 10 backlinks pointing to it. You have to register them yourself, this is not a problem at such a low price. You can use this guy on seoclerk.com.

$5 will get you 50 expired Tumblr blogs with PA 30+. Again you have to register them yourself. You can use this guy for these.

Now for the social signals. You can use this service to get 4000 social signals for just $10. I have also used this guy for social siganls, you get 1000 for $4.

So basically, with the use of seoclerk.com you can rank a website no.1 for less than $10.

What I used to rank this post:

For just $5 I got 5 high page authority Weebly and 5 high page authority Tumblr blogs from here. The best part is that they are registered for you, they have a PA 28+. I used the 2350 social signals for $3 as mentioned above.

I always get people to find the expired Weebly and Tumblr blogs for me. This saves me loads of time, it’s worth it with them being so cheap.

While I wait for my order to be completed I get on with writing the content.

Because the keyword selected for this post has an extremely low keyword difficulty score of 15, I am going to use just 10 web 2.0 backlinks.

5 high page authority Tumblrs and 5 high page authority expired Weeblys combined with 2350 social signals to this page will easily be enough to rank it.

If 10 Web 2.0 backlinks does not rank this page number one for my selected keywords, I will simply add more backlinks using web 2s until I rank first. This process is super simple.

How To Build Your Backlinks

It is very important that you read this part on how to build your Web 2.0 backlinks in the right way. You do not want to have your keyword in the backlink anchor text everytime.

Each time your create a backlink from your Web 2.0 sites, you need to think about the text that is used inside the link.

This is what works really well for me:

  • Keyword
  • URL
  • Click Here
  • Brand

So your first backlink from a Web 2.0 site will contain your keyword in the anchor text.

Your second lot of content on your second Web 2.0 will use your money site URL for the anchor text.

The third Web 2.0 backlink will have “click here” as the anchor text. Your fourth Web 2.0 backlink will use your brand name as the anchor text.

On your fifth Web 2.0 you will go back to the beginning of the process and use your keyword as the anchor text and so on and so forth until you have used all your Web 2 sites.

Sometimes I do not bother with the branded anchor text if I am not going to create many backlinks. I will not use the branded anchor text in this tutorial as I am only going to create 10 Web 2.0 backlinks.

Remember you are trying to make your backlink profile look as natural as possible. Do not miss this step.

I always log all my Web 2.0 backlinks in an Excel file. I note down the Web 2.0 backlink url, the anchor text used and the date it was published.

How To Get Backlinks From Tumblr

Now that you have your expired high page authority Web 2.0 sites, it is time to get some backlinks from them.

We will start with Tumblr because they are quick and easy to do. You do not need to add a lot of content to each post. I like to add around 200 words, you can do less if you are pushed for time.

Tumblr have recently started to do a redirect, which might just kill your backlink juice. If you put a small description of your blog post in the Tumblr Site Description, you will get a backlink to your site without the redirect. I will show you how to do this below.

Get into your Tumblr account

First of all, log into your Tumblr account with the email address and password that we provide you with.

Click on the pencil to add a post

Click on the pencil icon in the top right corner of the screen to add your first post.

Now click on the Aa text icon

Now click on the Text icon. Don’t worry, you can add links, videos and other media too.

Add title, tags and URL

Use your keywords that you want to rank for in the post Title, Custom URL (get to by clicking on the tools icon) and Tags.

Highlight text to add your Tumblr backlink

Add your content (around 200 words will do), then highlight the text that you want to use as your anchor for your backlink. Now, select the link icon and then add the URL back to your money site.

You can also link out to another authority site in your niche. Just do not link out to a competitor that ranks in the top 10 search results for your selected keyword.

Now hit the post button to get your content live

Now hit the post button, you now have your first powerful Web 2.0 backlink in place. We are not finished yet, we now have a Tumblr redirect backlink, now let’s get a direct backlink from Tumblr.

Select edit appearance option

Click the person tab in the top right of your screen, then click on “edit appearance”.

click on the edit theme button

Next you need to click on the edit theme button.

Add code into the description area

You will need to add some basic HTML code into the description area to get your direct backlink from Tumblr.

I add a “Blog Posts” section to my site description area. So I will copy the first few lines of the content we created earlier that includes the link to our money site.

Add this html code to your Tumblr description

Now add the html code to the description area. Your code will look something like above. Take a note of the link to your money site and Tumblr post.

You can copy and paste the code below:

<h1>Blog Posts</h1>
<h2>Your Blog Post Title (keyword)</h2>

<a href=”http://www.yourmoneysite.com/”>your anchor text</a>

<p><a href=”http://yourtumblrblogname.tumblr.com/your-blog-post-url”>Continue

Problems with code:

Some people have experienced problems with the code above.

Make sure that your quotation marks look like they do in the image above (the code in red).

Check that your quotation marks are facing the right way round 🙂 You can go here to copy a working code for HTML Links.

Add your content around the code.

After you have added the code, hit the save button on the top left of your screen. Then hit the exit button.

Now check out your Tumblr site. You will have a redirect link to your money site from a blog post, and a direct link from the description section at the top of your Tumblr site just underneath your blog icon.

That’s it. Repeat this process over and over again on all your different Tumblr blogs. You can use each blog over and over again to rank as many money sites as you wish.

Get Backlinks From Weebly Web 2.0

Let’s go right ahead and get some sweet backlinks from our high page authority Weebly Web 2.0 sites. I usually write around 300 to 500 words of content for my Weebly sites.

Always write unique content for your Web 2.0 sites as they are sure to get picked up by Google. This is by far the best way to go.

Enter your email address to log into Weebly

Enter your email address and password that we give you to log into your expired Weebly account.

Select your Weebly blog theme

Then select your Weebly theme. Make sure that you select a Blog Theme. This is important, you want all your posts to show on the high page authority home page. This means that all the backlinks you create from this Web 2.0 site will come from a high authority page.

Click Add Post Button

Click the “New Post” button at the bottom right hand corner of the screen.

Add your keywords to your post title

Add your post title, use your keyword like I have in the picture shown above. Then drag an element from the left hand side panel into the content section. First I drag an image element across, and then a text element, which we will add our content to. Click in the text element area and write some content in there.

Highlight text to add your Web 2.0 backlink

Highlight the text that you want to use as your anchor text in your backlink. Then click the link icon on the tool bar and enter the URL that you want the link to go to. I will add a link back to this page and also another link to an authority site in the Web 2.0 niche.

Click the post button to publish your backlink

Click the “Post” button in the top right hand corner of your screen, you will now have a live Weebly Web 2.0 backlink to your site.

Make sure Google indexes your Weebly link

Before you leave Weebly there is one last thing you need to do. By default, all Weebly sites are hidden from the search engines. Google will not find your backlink unless you cover this step.

Click the “settings tab” at the top of the screen. Then select “SEO” from the left hand nav bar. Scroll down until you see the “hide site from search engines” toggle. Toggle it to “off” and then hit the save button at the bottom left hand corner of your screen.

That’s it. You can now go ahead and create Tumblr and Weebly Web 2.0 backlinks to rank any site you want to.

Your work is not finished yet. You need to get your backlinks indexed in Google search in order for them to improve your ranking.

Get Your Backlinks Indexed

The last step in the ranking process is to get all your Web 2.0 backlinks indexed in Google search. There are many ways to do this, my way is fast and easy.

I used to fire Social Bookmarks and social signals to my Web 2.0 sites in order to get the backlinks indexed by Google. This process took way too long, my new strategy is below.

UPDATE: I do not use Link Centaur any more, it is a waste of time. All you have to do is submit URL to Google search, all is outlined below.

Some expired web 2.0 sites just will not index, you can use the same content on a different web 2, it’s not the content, it’s the web 2 site sub domain itself. If the web 2 does not index after doing a Google submit it is not going to index. You need to bin that web 2 and move onto another one. Sometimes a Spam expired web 2 will not index at all.

To check if your web 2.0 site is indexed simply pop the full web 2 URL into Google search.

Use Link Centaur to get your backlinks indexed fast

The first thing I do is add my Web 2.0 URL’s to LinkCentaur.com. This site will get your backlinks indexed by Google. The best part is it is free to use. Well, on the free account you can add 50 URL’s per day, perfect.

Click "add a campaign" button

After you have confirmed your account click on the “Add a Campaign” button.

Add your campaign name and hit the save button

Add your campaign name. I always name each campaign by the keywords that I am looking to rank for. Then hit the “Save Campaign” button.

Now click the "details" button to add your backlink URL

Now click on the “Details” button. This is where we will add our Web 2.0 URL to get our backlink indexed.

Now click on the "Add Links" tab

Now click on the “Add Links” tab and then enter your Web 2.0 URLs into the text area. Then click the “Add Links” button at the bottom of the screen.

Link Centaur does not guarantee that your Web 2.0 sites will get indexed. This is why I always add another step into the process. I will manually submit my Web 2.0 sites to Google, you need to visit the add url to Google page to do this.

Add your Web 2.0 site to Google

Simply enter your Web 2.0 URL and hit the “Submit Request” button. If your content is unique, it is sure to hit the Google index. Sometimes my Web 2.0 sites get indexed in the Google search results within minutes of pressing the submit button.

There you have it, a complete ranking strategy. Follow this process to the letter and you will be ranking sites high in Google in no time at all.

When Will You See The Results

This is different for every site that I have ranked. I normally see some search engine movement with this technique within a week or so.

To rank a new page from scratch at number one in Google using this system it can take 2 or 3 months. Don’t worry if you don’t see instant results, just keep building the backlinks and you will most definitely improve your ranking.

The important thing to do is not to quit. Don’t build two backlinks and stop, keep going with them until you reach number one. This process does work, I have used it over and over again.

What I Have Achieved With This System

I used just 10 high page authority expired Web 2.0 backlinks to rank number one in Google search. This was for my dog breeds site, my chosen keyword has a difficulty score of 20 on the Keyword Revealer site.

I used just 28 Web 2.0 backlinks to rank number one in Google for another dog breeds keyword. This keyword gets over 2000 searches per month, it has a Keyword Revealer difficulty score of 20.

I have ranked so many other sites using this system. It takes a little work, but it is well worth doing if you pick the right keywords to focus your time on.

The Results

I will log the ranking results here. I will keep track of when each backlink is created and post the dates here for all to see.

A good piece of free software to use to track your ranking is called “Rank Tracker” by SEO Power Suite. I use this all the time, this software will analyse keyword difficulty for you, worth knowing for when you run out of free daily Keyword Revealer tries.

Day the post is published:

This Post was published on Friday 18/03/2016. Google ranking: N/A. Zero backlinks created.

After submitting this post to “Google add url” in less than 30 minutes after the post was published the post is indexed in Google search. Google.com ranking is: 41 and Google.co.uk ranking is: 49. This is with zero backlinks created.

Sunday March 20th 2016:

Added 1 Tumblr and 1 Weebly backlink. Google.com ranking is: 22 and Google.co.uk ranking is: 25. That’s a whopping improvement of 19 places on Google.com and 24 places on Google.co.uk. Lot’s of movement in just 2 days with just 2 backlinks created.

Monday March 21st 2016:

Added 4 Tumblr Web 2.0 Backlinks. No change to ranking.

Tuesday March 22nd 2016:

Added 4 Weebly backlinks. Now we have a total of 10 Web 2.0 backlinks pointing to this page. Google.com ranking is: 23 and Google.co.uk ranking is: 26. A ranking drop of 1, this is only natural. I always see a small drop in ranking before a big rise. When the social signals kick in we will get a big improvement in ranking.

So far I have 4 Weebly and 4 Tumblr Web 2.0 backlinks indexed in Google search. For some reason 1 Weebly and 1 Tumblr did not index. I will create another Weebly and Tumblr post so that we have ten backlinks indexed.

I have added one extra Tumblr and one extra Weebly. Both of these backlinks have been indexed. We now have ten backlinks from web 2.0 sites indexed. Let’s wait to see how this affects the rankings.

Tuesday March 29th 2016:

2350 mixed social signals added. This page has dropped from the Google index altogether. This is because it is a new site and I built backlinks to it too quickly. The page will sit in the Google sandbox for a little time and will eventually return to the index. This is only natural for a new site like this.

Thursday March 31st 2016:

This page is now back in the Google search result pages. On Google.com it’s ranked: 24 and on Google.co.uk it’s ranked: 26. It will probably remain in that position for while, if it does I will add some more web 2.0 backlinks.

Saturday April 9th 2016:

Ranking update: Google.com: 20, Google.co.uk: 20. Ranking is now climbing, not added any more backlinks. Still climbing with the original 10 high page authority Weebly and Tumblr backlinks. This goes to prove, ranking any site is a long term project and takes time, patience is required, the results do come. This method never fails.

Sunday April 17th 2016:

Ranking update: Google.com: 8, Google.co.uk: 8. Ranking has improved significantly by 12 places in just one week. I have not added any extra backlinks. This ranking has been achieved with just 5 Weebly and 5 Tumblr backlinks and some social signals. I am sure the ranking will continue to rise. When it settles in a particular spot I will add more backlinks until no.1 rank is attained, however, this might not be required.

Monday April 18th 2016: One Month Ranking Update

This page has been live for exactly one month now. We have gone from zero to Google rank 8 in just one month. We are on the first page of Google with just 10 Web 2.0 backlinks.

Wednesday April 27th 2016:

Search engine movement has levelled off. I have added some of these free backlinks to power up the page. If ranking does not improve I will add more high page authority web 2.0 backlinks.

Sunday May 1st 2016:

In just 4 days, the free backlinks that I added has improved the ranking of this page. Google.com: 6 and Google.co.uk: 7. That’s a two place ranking rise on Google.com and a one place rise for Google.co.uk. I am sure those free backlinks will continue to improve the ranking of this page over the next few weeks.

Wednesday May 4th 2016:

Today I have added 8 more high page authority Tumblr backlinks. Current rank is Google.com: 6 and Google.co.uk: 7. Let’s see how these web 2.0 backlinks take affect over the next few weeks.

Friday May 6th 2016:

I have added 7 more Tumblr posts with backlinks included. Ranking has not changed since May 4th.

Sunday May 15th 2016:

Google.com: 3 and Google.co.uk: 3. Now ranked in position no. 3 on Google search. The page now has a total of 5 Weebly and 20 Tumblr expired web 2 blogs pointing at it. Give this a few more weeks and no. 1 ranking will be achieved. This has taken nearly 2 months to achieve. Ranking no. 1 usually takes around 3 months to do, so I am on track here.

Sunday June 5th 2016:

This page is now ranked at Google.com: 2 and Google.co.uk 2. Just one more place to go and we have hit the top spot.

I have not added any more backlinks since my last ranking report.

Thursday June 9th 2016: No. 1 Ranking Achieved

This page is now ranked no. 1 on Google search using just web 2.0 backlinks

Today this page hit the no. 1 spot in Google search. So how long has it taken to rank this page no. 1 with just web 2.0 backlinks?

Took exactly 83 days to rank no. 1 in Google search UK and USA. Just under 3 months.

How many expired web 2 sites did I use?

5 Weebly and 20 Tumblr blogs. That’s all it took, it’s just a game of patience and building the backlinks at a steady rate. Now it is your turn to go ahead and Rank no. 1.

Proof on no. Google ranking with Rank Tracker software

Web 2.0 Backlinks Ranking Schedule

Below is the exact schedule I used to rank this page no. 1 in Google search.

Follow part 1 of my web 2.0 backlinks ranking schedule

As you can see, you start off slowly building the web 2.0 backlinks at a steady rate.

Web 2.0 ranking schedule part 2

After the end of your first week you should be ranked close to or at the bottom of page 1.

Backlink ranking schedule period 3

Ranking no. 1 will take you 3 months with this strategy. Slow and steady always wins the race with SEO.

Last backlinks to build before you hit the no. 1 spot

Not every strategy will be the same, but you can use this as a loose guide to how it is done.

Of course high competition keywords will require more backlinks in this time to rank at the top spot.

This is what needs to be done:

Month 1: 5 Weebly and 5 Tumblr Posts. All done on different Tumblr/Weebly sub domains. Add 2350 social signals.

Rank check at end of month one; should be at bottom of Google page one or top of page two.

Month 2: New web 2.0 linkwheel (not expired web 2s). See my free backlinks page for information on how to do this.

Rank check at end of month two; should be ranked number 3 or 4.

Month 3: 15 Tumblr posts. All done on different Tumblr sub domain properties.

Rank check at end of month three; should be ranked numer 1.

To use the exact same strategy I have used here just click on the links below. The results are here for you to see, if you use this system you will rank number one on Google search.

How To Find Expired Tumblr Blogs With Backlinks For Free No Proxies No VPN Required

You are going to love me for this;

You are never going to have to pay for expired Tumblr blogs again.

You can now find expired Tumblr blogs without Gscraper or Scrapebox.

I have discovered free software that you can download to find niche relevant expired Tumblr blogs with backlinks.

I have used this software and it really does work. You can thank me in the comments 🙂

The software is called Expired Tumblr Hunter. Follow the link to get your free copy.

This is how to use the software to find good quality expired Tumblr blogs that will help you rank.

After downloading expired Tumblr Hunter open the free software

After downloading the free software open it up. You can find niche related expired Tumblr blogs by selecting the “Niche related” tab. Then you will need to enter your keywords.

This software is so good because you do not need any proxies or VPN.

Enter your niche keywords and hit the start button

Input your niche keywords and then hit the “start” button.

You do not have to search for niche related expired Tumblr blogs if you do not want to.

Do not select the “Niche related” tab if you do not require niche related Tumblr blogs. Just open the software and hit the start button.

Take a look at the expired Tumblr blogs available to register

After a couple of minutes I get a list of expired Tumblr blogs ready to register.

The software even lets you know if the Tumblr is available to register or not.

Right click and copy the Tumblr URL

When you have a good list of expired Tumblr blogs we need to check the backlinks pointing to them. We need to make sure that they are worth registering.

A Tumblr without any backlinks is worthless to us, it will not pass on a great deal of ranking juice.

Select a Tumblr that is available to register and right click on the URL and copy it.

We are going to paste the URL into a few free backlink checker tools to analyse the backlinks.

Paste the Tumblr URL into the free online backlink checker tool

Paste the Tumblr URL into this free backlink checker tool. I use this one because it finds the most amount of backlinks.

Take a look at the backlinks pointing to your expired Tumblr blog

Take a look at the backlinks pointing to your expired Tumblr. This one has lots of Pinterest and other Web 2 backlinks. It’s not the strongest Tumblr ever, so I would not register this one.

We are looking for an expired Tumblr with lots of backlinks from good authority domains.

To check the authority of the backlinks pointing to the Tumblr blog just visit the URL and use MozBar.

Check the quality of the backlinks pointing to the Tumblr

Use MozBar to check the quality of the backlinks pointing to the Tumblr.

As you can see, this one is poor. We are looking for backlinks to the Tumblr from pages with high PA with backlinks pointing to them too. This will pass on some serious ranking juice.

Now let’s check if the backlinks that point to the Tumblr still exist.

Now check if the backlinks are still live

Now paste the URL into the RankSignals.com backlink checker tool. It is free to use, however you do need to sign up for an account.

This tool lets us know if the backlinks pointing to the Tumblr still exist. If the backlinks have been removed then there will be no ranking juice passed onto our money site.

That’s it. Go and get the tool and find yourself some expired Tumblr blogs with loads of backlinks for free.

You have no excuses for not ranking sites no. 1 now.

Just take your time finding a Tumblr with some decent backlinks. It will pay off big time if you do.

I just found an expired Tumblr using the Expired Tumblr Hunter software that has a backlink from a PA 65 with 9000 backlinks pointing to it. This particular Tumblr has 6 more strong backlinks pointing to it. This is some serious ranking juice that I got for free, wahooo.

How To Register Expired Tumblr Blogs

This is a quick tutorial on how to register expired Tumblr blogs. Sometimes when you buy expired Web 2.0 sites you need to register them yourself.

This is how you do it:

First of all sign up for a free email address. I use mail.com or Yahoo.

You can register all expired Tumbly blogs under 1 email address if you like.

I like to use a new email address for every Tumblr blog. This way, if one gets shut down, you do not lose them all.

You can mask your IP address when you register them, you can use a free IP masking service. I do not do this, if you are concerned about footprints then you might want to do this.

Click on the "GET STARTED" button

Click on the “Get Started” button.

Add your email, password and username to sign up

Add the email address that you just signed up for. Add your password. Now, for the username use the name of the expired Tumblr blog that you were given. So in my case here it was happyprincekoala.tumblr.com. Then hit the sign up button.

Now enter your age and accept the terms of service

Now enter your age and accept the terms of service. Click the “Next” button.

Then select 5 subjects that you are into

Then select 5 things that you are into and hit the next button.

Go ahead and verify your Tumblr email address

Then you need to go ahead and verify your Tumblr email address that you used on sign up.

You will now get the Tumblr email verified page

You have now verified your email. Now go to your Tumblr dashboard. You can visit your Tumblr site URL to check you are up and running. Now you can add some content to your new expired Tumblr blog and get those Web 2.0 backlinks to your money site.

If you want to register an expired Tumblr URL to an existing account do the following:

Register an expired Tumblr domain to an existing account

From your dashboard click on the little person icon in the top right of the screen. Then click on “+New”.

Enter the expired Tumblr blog URL

Pop in your blog title and enter the URL of the expired high page authority Tumblr blog. Then click “Create Blog” and you are done. It’s fast and easy to add an expired Tumblr blog to an exiting account.

This is the message you get if someone has registered the Tumblr before you

Every now and again someone will beat you to registering the expired Tumbly blog. This is what you will see if this happens. I know it’s annoying, but it does happen.

Most sellers of expired Tumblr blogs will replace them if they have already been registered by someone else before you get there. The guy that sells them for $1, as featured above, will replace them if you get back to him before 3 days after the order was delivered.

Now you have the Tumblr registered it’s time to get your powerful Web 2.0 backlinks and start ranking.

  • Can I operate the blogs all from the same IP address and still rank?
    thanks for this a great tutorial by the way.

    • Yes you can, I do not mask my ip and the method works for me. If you want to remove all footprints, then you can hide your ip. I do not, however there are some good free ways to hide your ip. I have used free-hideip.com, I stopped because it makes your browser run too slow.

    Great post indeed! I am really surprised to see this Nick because people have almost written off web2.0 backlinks and their efficacy citing as dated, but I would just like to see some more case studies to rank Amazon niche sites with keyword competition around 30. That would be really interesting. Keep up the good work!

    • Hi Kajol, thanks for stopping by. I have ranked Amazon niche sites. Takes a bit of work. I am going to write a tutorial as soon as I can. The process is pretty simple. You are going to need more expired Tumblrs, around 30 or so, it’s important to make sure that your expired Tumblrs have backlinks to them otherwise they are useless. Then of course you add the social signals. After that I usually add some free backlinks for diversity (which is what my next post is about). Then finally I add private blog network posts, how many of these you will require all depends on how many backlinks the top ranking sites have and the quality of these links. With a keyword competition of 30 or below you might only need 10 decent private blog backlinks. I will let you know who I use at seoclerks for this in my next post. Web 2.0 backlinks work really well, if done the right way of course.

  • Hey Nick – Excellent write up here.
    Is there any way to NOT have the tumblr redirect links in the actual posts/articles on the tumblr blog?
    I’m not sure if I read/understand your post correct here… is the only good (for seo backlink) link the one you add in your actual description area? Or can you continue posting natural looking articles with keywords, anchors etc. linking to different parts of your money site?

    • Thanks Bo. There is no way to not have the re-direct on the links in the Tumblr posts. As I understand, the re-direct links still pass on the juice and will help your search engine ranking. I just add the link in the description to make sure my site is certain to get a boost. I have got improved my ranking with just links in the blog posts and not in the description area. Yes you can continue posting articles linking to different pages on your money site on the same Tumblr blog, I do this all the time and it certainly helps improve my search engine ranking. Take a look at my free backlinks post and use those links with the Tumblr links and you will be ranking no. 1 in no time at all. If you need an extra ranking boost, if you are trying to rank a difficult keyword you will have to then get some private blog network links, my next post will let you know how to get this done. Thanks for stopping by. Hope I have helped.

  • Hey Nick,
    Great article! Lots of info, Thank you!
    I am a little bit surprise because i just checked your site and this domain is brand new, So what about the google sandbox theory? I have 3 new Amazon niche site and i am thinking about build link slow because of the sandbox? I have 1 month old website with 30k great original content and my main keyword did not show up all in the GSRPS, But i will star build web 2.0 links to my site, I think i will twist the method a little bit for each site, For my old site (3 months old) I will use NEW web 2.0 for Tier1 and expired web 2.0 for tier 2, (Maybe around 30 Link) Will update you my result


    • Hi Akram,
      Yes you need to take things slowly with new sites. I would most definitely start with free backlinks. Like you say, go for new web 2.0 in tier 1. Try to make things look as natural as possible. Add some doc share and image share backlinks in there too. If you build backlinks slowly to a new site you will not hit the Google sandbox. I recommend no more than three links a day. Also, don’t use your keyword as anchor text for new sites, stick to your URL. Then when your site has aged a little, around 3 months will do, hit it with good private blog network backlinks using your main keyword as anchor text only. This works a treat. Let me know how you get on. Good luck.

  • Hi, thanks Nick for the case study .

    I have a question,

    I’ve some 30+ expired tumblr blogs ,5 weebly , i want to rank a site that has competition of 12 on keyword revealer . The site sits at #6 without SEO done ( its more 3 years old site ) .

    I’ve built some High authority Profile links, ( with URL, generic ) anchors,

    I’m creating tumblr blogs with Keyword variations and some exact match keywords , as of now i’ve not seeing any SERP movements.

    I’ve added some social signals too , regarding Tumblr links, i’ve not added it to google to index .

    Can i add URL on single google account ? i mean, 3 tumblr blogs on google site submitter per day ?

    Thanks .

    • Hi Mani, You need to get your web 2.0 backlinks noticed by Google. This means that you need them indexed. Just pop your web 2.0 site URL into google search to find out if they are indexed or not. If they are not indexed then use pingbomb.com (free) and linkcentaur.com (free). I also pop the web 2 url into alexa .com. Then I add the web 2 URL to “submit Url to Google”, I have 11 Google accounts that I log into alternately to submit my web 2 URL to. I never mask my IP by the way, it works for me. So, you need to submit your web 2 URLs to Google search. Set up about 5 google accounts and get cracking. As Google acknowledges your backlinks your ranking will improve. It is a long process, and can take around 2 months to rank no. 1. With a keyword difficulty of just 12 ranking no. 1 will be very easy. Just keep building the backlinks and it will happen. Make sure that your content is superior to the rest of the top 10 ranking sites too. Hope this helps. If you need any more help feel free to ask any time. You can add 3 Tumblr blogs on Google site submitter per day, no problem.

  • Your article is very good and detailed. I’ll get to work building your links now and experience the results. Thank you for sharing this very useful! I hope that you constantly update the results!

    • Thanks for the feedback Harold. You will certainly improve your ranking if you build these backlinks steadily in the right way. I will certainly keep the results updated. Keep checking back for more. Thanks for stopping by.

  • Holy crap! This is an awesome TUT! Many thanks for your efforts.

    • My pleasure. Give it a try, it will certainly improve your Google ranking.

    Nice share Nick, I will try this method.. Big thanks..

    • No problem. Hope it helps a few people out there to start ranking. Enjoy!!!

  • Hi Nick,

    Great TUT and well written, it has helped me a lot. Thanks for your efforts.

    Would you mind to elaborate a little more on social signals? What is the procedure for these?



    • Thanks Alen, social signals let Google know that your content is popular. Social signals are a ranking factor, I have seen improvements in ranking with social signals alone. You can buy social signals cheap enough, or you can have a crack at adding them yourself using this site: addmefast.com/. Hope this helps.

  • Thanks for the tut Nick! Just one question: I tried adding my direct link on my new Tumblr site to my money site (using the “edit theme” trick) but when I save it, and test the link it just redirects back to my Tumblr site. Any suggestions?

    • Hi Alex, the code in your “edit theme” – “description area” of your Tumblr can’t be right. Check it, the code should look like this:

      Tumblr Backlink Code

      This trick still works, I have just tested it on one of my Tumblr’s. All is good, give it a go.

      • Yes, it’s exactly like that – check it out here: posihellokitty.tumblr.com and check out the source code. I’m not sure what the issue is – maybe they made some recent changes?

        • Apologies for the late reply, I missed your comment. Everything is still working okay on Tumblr. I have just checked your Tumblr blog and the code is incorrect:
          This is what you have done:
          Correct Tumblr Code
          I have highlighted in red where you have gone wrong.
          Your quotation marks are incorrect and your domain name is wrong. Only one “d” in there and not two.
          Change it over and let me know if you have it working.

          I have also noticed that your Tumblr is not indexed in Google search.

          My advise is to add an image to each post together with a video. It does not have to be your video, just grab any related video off YouTube. Make sure your content is unique too, then you can be certain it will get indexed in Google search.

          I only add around 100 words to each Tumblr post, with an image and a related video off youtube. They get indexed everytime without fail.

          If your Tumblr does not get indexed it will have no affect on your money site ranking.

          Your Tumblr has a serious amount of backlinks, that’s some super ranking juice you have right there with a PA 94….good find.

          • Thanks a lot Nick! I missed that! And thanks for the additional advice…I appreciate it : ) Keep up the good work here…we all appreciate the time you take to reply to our questions – no matter how stupid they are. Cheers!

            • No problem, happy to help. No question is stupid, it’s stupid if you don’t ask for help. Good luck ranking your site :-).

  • Hello,

    LinkCentaur is a great tool, thanks for the recommendation.

    The campaign thats in LinkCentaur is all complete with filled “green” rows (i.e., my links have been crawled).

    Should i be able to see these crawled links back in my Google Search Console?

    • I love LinkCentaur too, I use it everyday. You will not always see the backlinks to your site in Google Search Console. I use SEO SpyGlass to check backlinks pointing to my site, it’s awesome and free. It picks up on so many more backlinks than any other backlink checker that I have ever used. If you want to know if your backlink has been indexed just pop the URL into Google search. Hope this helps.

  • Hey Nick,

    First off… cheers for the awesome tutorials. I’ve been reading all of your content and loving your blog so far.

    That being said… I have a couple questions pertaining to this method.

    1. What’s the MAX competition score you would recommend going after if you’re only implementing the expired web 2.0 technique?

    2. How long does it take to achieve rankings on an already established domain using just this method? i.e. sites with 20+ DA, good amount of content, etc.

    • Hi Brad, thanks for stopping by. The max competition score I would go for is 30, you would need anywhere between 30 and 40 Tumblrs to rank no. 1. I know you can go up to around competition score 40 and rank no. 1 with around 40 Tumblrs. The trick is to use quality expired Tumblrs with lots of backlinks pointing to them, the links pass on the ranking juice. An expired Tumblr with high page authority but no backlinks is useless, the page authority will drop too. It’s all about the backlinks. To achieve a number one ranking it takes 3 months tops, it all depends on how many backlinks you build each day and the quality of those links. Domain authority helps, but it’s more important to publish in depth quality content, quality over quantity is better. You need to build a good variety of backlinks to add some diversity in there. Take a look at my latest post to see my weekly backlink building schedule that works: http://www.rankersparadise.com/do-it-yourself-seo-guide/ if you need any more help feel free to ask. Remember, never quit, jumping from one project to another is a big mistake, stick with it and you will rank no. 1 eventually.

  • Thanks for the reply, Nick.

    And, yeah, I try to out-do the competition in terms of content quality all the time. My real question, though, is how long does it take just to hit page one with this strategy? I know #1 is the ultimate goal, but my short-term goal for each piece of content I put out is just hitting page 1 in general.

    I’m mainly targeting KWs with competition scores in the 10-25 range to keep myself from having to fight for months for spots (I need those affiliate sales now lol). I’m using a mix of properties, too. A good 20+ strong Tumblrs, plus some strong Weebly, Blogspot, etc.

    In addition to that I build social signals of my own (branded FB pages, Twitter accounts, Pinterest, etc) and a few bookmarks for every page.

    I’m also testing this strategy on a newer site (~3 months old) and have built about 15 expired web 2.0 links to the pages for it. These are for very low competition KWs (in the 5-10 range). I was building about 3-6 links a day for about 2 weeks. I saw some nice bumps, but haven’t made it past page 3 yet. And, yes, the links are indexed. I’ve checked manually on Google.

    So, yeah, my ultimate question is how long does it take for this strategy to push you just to page 1 (position 8, 9, or even 10)?

    • When I first publish a new post I usually hit the top of page 3 or bottom of page 2 without any backlinks at all, that’s just pure on page optimization. With a few internal links I push up to the middle of page 2. To get on page 1 with this strategy it takes me around 1 month, this page took exactly 1 month to hit the first page with just 10 high page authority web 2.0 backlinks and some social signals.
      Have you got Google analytics on your site? I was having a problem moving a site recently and noticed that I had an 80% bounce rate, so I purchased some keyword target traffic to bring it down, and sure enough I saw a jump onto the first page. With 15 expired web 2s pointing to a page with keyword competition 5 to 10 you should be on the first page. Is your on page optimised? Without taking a look at your site and reviewing your keywords I can’t be exact what the problem might be.
      It does sound like you are spreading yourself a little thin. Pick out one keyword that you are going to get the best return on and focus on that until you hit no. 1. If it is an Amazon affiliate site I always go for products over $100, you can then work out what monthly return you will get on your time investment. To do this you just need your keyword monthly search number and your Amazon conversion rate. You also have to bear in mind that the top ranking site gets 33% of that traffic, no. 2 gets 17%, no. 3 gets 11%. You can see all the google traffic position stats here. This is why keyword selection is so important, you need to evaluate if it is the best use of your time. My advice is to focus on one keyword and try to rank that first. You need to look for an opportunity in the search results, is there a weak spot on the first page…a site with poor content and very few links that you can knock down. If you follow my do it yourself seo strategy step by step you will be able to hit the first page every time. If you need any further help please feel free to email me.

      • If that’s the case I may just need to wait it out a little longer to see results. I initially started this strategy back on April 26th. So, it’s been roughly 2 1/2 weeks. One of my sites that I’ve been working on (an aged site with good content) is bouncing around a lot. Another has had subtle movements. On another I’ve literally seen no movement at all. So perhaps I’m being a bit impatient.

        I’m able to write up a lot of unique content relatively quickly for these web 2.0 properties and I have about 10 sites that are fleshed out already. Most are already sitting on page 2-3 mainly from, as you said, good on-page efforts.

        So, I’m just trying to start shooting quality backlinks at my pages to get them moving up. Testing this strategy out on a few different sites to see how it pans out. I’ll probably wind up doing the entire DIY SEO plan that you have written up as it sounds like a cheap and effective way to do things.

        I will, however, take your advice and try to focus on the most profitable non-competitive keywords first. Hopefully that will lead to some quick success and good sales. I’m working with a few different things in terms of monetization. Some Amazon, ShareaSale, Clickbank, and even Adsense. I like to keep my portfolio diverse.

        But, yeah, looks like I mainly just need to keep chugging along, tracking results, and being a bit more patient. I just need to get sales rolling so I’m being a bit quick on the trigger probably lol

        • Yeah, keep chugging along and you will see the results soon. You certainly have to be patient when ranking sites, it’s a long term goal. You definitely need to focus your time on one profitable keyword. Stick with it, never quit…just one good backlink can change the game big time. Try step 9 on my free backlinks page, you might get lucky and find a powerful ranking boost backlink. It’s a bit labour intensive, I have had some good results with it. If you wait you will hit page one, it sounds like you are on the right track at the moment….give it another 2 weeks and let me know how you are getting on…it’s pretty certain you will be on page one by then, you will be asking me how to make that final push into the no. 1 spot. I always find that a site that bounces around a lot is a good sign, right after the Google dance I always see a massive jump in ranking. Your ranking will then settle, then it all starts again, good fun though. My diy seo plan is definitely the cheapest way to go, the PBN network links are an awesome price considering the price of the ones here for $200. Keep on trucking, the sales will come, never quit and you will succeed…don’t make the same mistakes twice and don’t keep doing the same thing over and over if it isn’t having any effect. Hope you rank no. 1 soon…let me know how you get on.

          • Yeah, I’m hoping the big dips on one of my sites is just the Google dance and it’ll bounce back big time soon. Just in the past day or so it dropped nearly 20 positions. Sometimes that’s a bad sign, other times it just means you need to keep going and it’ll come back stronger than ever. Hopefully in this case the latter will happen.

            I’ll keep going at it. Might toss some more social signals, bookmarks, and such at it to diversify the links and just keep chugging along. May give the targeted keyword traffic a try, too. I’ve never used anything like that before, but it sounds like something that could definitely help.

            I’ll report back with my results in a week or two. Hopefully everything works out for the best.

            Thanks again for the tutorials and for the replies. I will definitely be keeping an eye on your blog for future updates. Your content has been awesome and provides a lot more value than most other sites. Cheers for that.

            • If you have been varying your anchor text then your ranking is sure to improve after the Google dance. Don’t worry about the big drop, if you have been building the backlinks in the right way you are going to see a big improvement in your ranking shortly. I would not use targeted traffic on Adsense sites, might get banned. I use it on all other affiliate sites. Let me know any developments, I am glad to help.

  • Nick, how do tumblr or any web 2.0 sub-domains become expired,
    and how can this be prevented.

    also, how much content should we add to the web 2.0 so it will last a long time as a good back link.


    • Hi Jeremy, good question. Web 2s become expired due to inactivity or spam. The web admin team over at Tumblr, Weebly or whatever web 2 site you use will decided to drop the domain. The sub domain then becomes up for grabs, it’s available again, and if they have lots of backlinks and high page authority they are perfect for backlinks.

      The key to success with web 2 sites is to only publish unique content on them, add a video, picture and a heading. I add about 100 words to my Tumblrs, I go for about 300 to 500 words on Weebly.

      If you use your web 2 sites to rank many sites, use them as an asset, you will not get them dropped for inactivity, you will be posting on them on a monthly basis.

      Also if you add unique content it will not get removed as spam.

      It’s good to build up a portfolio of web 2’s with awesome metrics, lots of backlinks and use them like a private blog network to rank all your affiliate sites.

      They are great because you have nothing to pay, no domain name renewals or hosting costs.

      Grab some and give it a go.

      Take a look at my do it yourself ranking guide, if you use these links in the right way you can utilise the power of them to rank no. 1 for your selected keyword.

  • Hey Nick,

    The site wouldn’t let me reply to your last comment on our comment thread for some reason. The big dips were a bit concerning to me, but I’m just moving forward. I’m varying my anchors a good bit with the URL, keyword variations, and the primary keyword. I try to use my properties with the highest PA for the main KW and the others for bare URLs, generics, and KW variations.

    I’ve actually used a similar strategy in the past to rank sites. The only difference being that I actually created brand new web 2.0 properties, put up a unique content with my links, and then built links to those properties. Some are now in the 35-40 PA range and the sites I’ve used those for do pretty well.

    Do you have any suggestions for building tier 2 links to the expired web 2.0s? In the past I’ve basically just used contextual GSA blasts to get everything indexed and provide link juice boosts. I’ve also used PBN blasts. A guy I’ve bought from many times does 300 blogposts on a 4-30 day drip for $21 and that’s always done well for passing link juice for me. Just wanted to know your thoughts?

    I’m also going to diversify the backlink profiles with high PR web 2.0 profiles, videos, PDFs, infographics, high PR bookmarks, and perhaps some manual comments on good relevant properties. I’ve always found these to be a solid base, especially when used just for partial match keyword variations, branded, and generic links.

    • I only ever build backlinks to my expired web 2s if they do not index, and I only use new web 2 sites. If that does does not index them I will throw a backlink to them from my private blog network that I have.

      Are you using shared hosting?

      There is a sweet little trick I learned to add a few sites to the same shared hosting. You use cloud flare to change the DNS. So the site sits on your shared hosting but big G thinks that it’s on a different server. You can find out how to use cloud flare to build a private blog network here.

      I do not use GSA any more, it’s just spam really and does not have a massive effect, and in the end it will have a negative effect. I do everything manually now. I suppose it all depends on how you use it.

      It sounds like you are on the right track.

      I just ranked a keyword difficulty 26 no. 1 without expired web 2s, just used new sites.

      It only took:

      2 Youtube videos
      4 private blog network backlinks
      2 academia.edu posts
      10 new web 2 sites: wordpress, jigsy, weebly, jimdo, bravesites. 2 posts on each site.
      12 doc shares: issuu, google drive, scribd, app box, mediafire, docdroid all done twice over.
      105 Google Plus shares
      8 Niche relevant blog comments
      15 PR 2+ blog comments
      2 image shares: imgur and flickr
      200 social bookmarks

      Tier 2:
      3000 wiki articles to the new web 2 sites and the doc shares. You can get the 3000 wiki articles done on seoclerks here for $1.

      That’s all it took. I added completely unique articles to all web 2 sites. Now that particular Adsense page is popping me a few hundreds bucks a month.

      Not loads of money, but if you focus down on one keyword and keep at it until you rank no. 1 it will happen. Get loads of these keywords ranking and you have a nice monthly passive revenue.

      I do not build any more backlinks when I rank no. 1 unless I slip. But I never do, because when you hit no. 1 backlinks then come natural and the ranking always sticks.

      Hope this helps. I have provided links to who you can use on seoclerks to speed things up.

      • I haven’t hit the expired web 2.0s with any GSA or anything other than some bookmarks yet. I don’t own a PBN right now. I don’t have the cash for it at the moment. I do plan to do that once I have some extra money, though. I already have a list of viable domains. I’ll probably just pick them up one at a time. They’re all expired and ready for registration so it’d only cost ~$10 a pop. And, yeah, I’d be using shared hosting for them. I think that’s the most natural anyway. Just have a different package for each with a unique IP / server.

        I’m also going to start spreading my links out to more inner pages within my sites, too. Noticing on one site that pages that aren’t even getting links are dipping which is odd. I think it may be because I’m focusing all the links on two pages which may look unnatural. So I’m going to toss a few to other pages as well just to spread it out a bit.

        Definitely going to forge ahead with the expired web 2.0s, social signals, profiles, videos, PDF submits, and such for now. I’ll work on getting some pages ranked that way, collect the profits, and invest in a real PBN and such to keep building up passive income.

        Are you using unique content on all of the doc sharing sites, too?

        • I use cloudflare for PBN and then use $1 hosting, freecpanelsharedhosting.com and quickclickhosting.com are few that I use, very cheap. Just Google “$1 hosting” for more :-).

          When I build out a site I have one main keyword in mind that I want to rank no. 1 for. I always power all backlinks to that one page until I hit no. 1. When one page on your site gets to no. 1 the rest of your pages will get backlinks naturally and they will start ranking too. It does look more natural to have links pointing to all pages on your site, yes.

          For my doc share sites I spin the content that I wrote for my web 2 sites. I use spinbot.com which is pretty good for a free spinner.

          It’s time consuming writing unique content all the time, but it certainly pays off in the long term. It’s worth doing.

          Use my do it yourself guide, it works for me :-).

          • It’s not too hard writing up all unique content, but it definitely takes up a good amount of time. Nevertheless, it has been proven to be much more effective than spun content, especially for tier 1 backlinks.

            I’ll try to do readable spins using the software I have for the doc shares and such. I use SpinnerChief. It’s free, too.

            As far as sites go, I usually make a site for a general niche and put up a ton of content and target several different keywords using different pages. They act more as authority sites than micro-niche sites. I typically have no fewer than 30 pages on any given site. Not all are targeted at keywords. Some are general niche content that I use for getting internal links to posts I want to rank.

            I do, however, have specific keywords that I want to rank more than others due to their profit potential. I’ll work on those first and then work on the lesser ones later down the road. But I think I will point the occasional link or two toward other inner pages just to have a more natural backlink profile.

        Thanks for sharing gigs Nick.But I think wiki links are nofollow right ? If yes how they will power up the new web 2.0’s ? And how many day it took to rank for keyword competition 26 keyword ?

        • Wikipedia and other Wiki links are no-follow yes, it’s still a great backlink to get from a high authority site, it also helps mix up your backlink profile (need no-follow and do-follow backlinks). They will help let big G know what your content is about and give it some extra authority. It will take around 3 months to rank for Keyword Revealer keyword competition 26, possibly 4 months depending on the quality of the content and backlinks that the top ranking sites have. It also depends whether or not those sites also get backlinks while you are getting yours, it could take longer…too many variables to be precise.

  • Hi,
    It was nice to go through as I have been thinking of Web2.0 links and have been thinking how to use. Your article has given me a good insight of how to use and I will definitely try it.

    But I do have a confusion, all you have told here is expired tumblr blog, does that mean a free blog on tumblr domain like “AnyBlogName.Tumblr.com” or a direct domain using Tumblr like “AnyBloname.com”?

    Also, you have mentioned a overview but does this suits for all the niche? I mean should we use the niche specific tumblr blogs or we can use a general niche for any niche and get the ranking you have mentioned?

    I tried to search through both on Seoclearks and Fiverr to get niche specific expired tumblr blogs but it was difficult to get.

    Instead how if I create a new blog on tumblr, wordpress, weebly, blogspot say “mykeyword.tumblr.com”, mykeyword1.wordpress.com and so on for about 10 to 15 web 2.0 links and then blast some tier 2 links for these web 2.0 and use some other links like DocShare, Videos, PPT without any PBN? If not got the results then getting some PBN?

    Your advice is appreciated.

    • Yes it’s a free to register expired Tumblr blog that has been dropped e.g backlinkstoday.tumblr.com, use expired web blogs because they have backlinks pointing to them, which of course will help you rank. You do not need to use a Tumblr or any web 2 that is niche specific, just grab a web 2 site that has lots of backlinks pointing to it. You do not have to worry about the backlinks, as long as the blog has high page authority you will be good to rank. People will not get you niche specific expired web 2 sites on seoclerks or fiverr, it does not matter. All we are bothered about is the backlinks that pass on the ranking juice.

      Yes you can rank sites using brand new niche specific web 2 sites along side doc share and image share backlinks, it just takes a bit longer. If you have a low competition keywords you should be expecting to hit the no. 1 spot after about 3 months.

      I would definitely go down the free new web 2 sites route first, if you feel you need a ranking boost then hit your site with some PBN links.

  • Thanks Nick,

    Your advice is appreciated, now it is clear to me about expired web 2.0. I will surely try this on my own sites and client sites I have and see how it gives me the result.

    Thanks again.

  • hi thanks nick for this very good post.

    i just scraped few expired domain but due moz not showing PA of web 2.0 i am not able decided which matrics to look.
    Few tumbler blog has 500+ backlinks and referring domains.
    is this tumblr blogs are good?

    • Hi, MOZ PA is not showing for web 2.0 sub domains. All we are concerned about is the backlinks anyway to pass on the ranking juice. There is no other metrics to consider other than the amount of backlinks the site has, they do not even have to be niche relevant.

      If you want to look at metrics you could use https://majestic.com/ and sign up for a free account. Go to “site explorer results” and enter your Tumblr URL and make sure that you select “Subdomain” after you hit the search button. You will then get a “Trust Flow” and “Citation Flow” score, however, all you need to be concerned about is the no. of backlinks from many referring IPs, which is also displayed.You get all this information from the “Summary” tab.

      Tumblrs with 500 backlinks are great, get some content on them and a backlink to your money site. Remember to mix up your anchor text, I am having some good results using unique long anchor text e.g (find out how to use web 2.0 backlinks to rank no. 1 on Google). All of this text would be used in the link, it’s working a treat at the moment. Use some open URL anchor text and a few (click here, go here etc) and you will be good to rank.

      All Tumblrs with backlinks are good. Give them a go, remember to track your ranking and keep note of all your backlinks. Use Rank Tracker to keep track of your ranking improvements.

      Good Luck.

        Hi Nick, Do you have any suggestions on where i can get tumblr blogs with at least 500 backlinks please. The ones I got from the link you provided above are betwen 12 to 99. Thanks in advance.

        • I use these guys….they advertise as 10+ backlinks but I always message them before I order. I have had Tumblrs from them with over 5000 backlinks. Tell them what you want and they will try and do it for you. It all depends on the quality of the backlinks anyway, if you get a Tumblr with 10 quality backlinks pointing to it from authority sites they are more powerful than a Tumblr with 500 poor quality backlinks. I just put the order through and I get what I get, you can’t go wrong for $1.

  • Great write-up, I’m going to be a regular visitor for a long time. I am going to go ahead and try these web 2.o backlinks tomorrow and see how it goes. I am sure that it will work.

    • Great, get cracking, this method certainly works. Make sure you mix up your anchor text to make things look as natural as possible. Happy ranking.

  • Hi, Really amazing article for complete procedure on how to rank site with web 2.0 links. I have one question, As you mentioned for $1 or $3 they give us more than 28 PA tumblr and weekly blogs but on what niches are they? If they are expired then too isn’t it necessary to be of same niche or related niche of our money site?

    • Hi Brij, they do not need to be in the same niche as your money site. We are not bothered about the PA either, it’s all about the backlinks and the ranking juice that they pass on to boost your site up the rankings. You need to get expired web 2 sites with backlinks, any backlinks will do, they do not have to be niche related. Of course if you get an expired web 2 with a backlink from Huffington post or some other high authority news site, snap it up, it is going to rank you like crazy. Give it a go, I am rocking it with this method as are many other people. Be sure to mix up your anchor text. I am working and ranking no. 1 with:

      40% unique long anchor
      30% Brand
      20% URL – use the different variations eg http://www.rankersparadise.com and rankersparadise.com
      5% Webmasters name – use your name in blog comments – check my free backlinks page to get them right now
      4% Click here or go here or visit site etc
      1% Exact match keyword anchor

      Don’t get too hung up on the exact match keyword anchor. I have ranked sites with 5% and a lot higher exact match keyword anchor.

      It certainly works, don’t miss out. Tumblrs are fast and easy to do, just pop an image on there with a few lines of text with your backlink and you are good to rank.

      You are going to need at least 30 to see movement unless you have a really easy keyword.

      Thanks for stopping by.

      • Hey Nick thanks for these tips,

        I have one more question what if I use new web 2.0s for tier 1 and expired web 2.0s with backlinks as tier 2? How does that sound to you?

        Even I’m confused with social signals, do I have to give social signals to my money site or to tier 1 or tier 2 sites? Please explain…

        Thank you.

        • The concept of using expired web 2.0 sites with backlinks pointing to them eliminates the need to create tier 2 links, they already have backlinks pointing to them and are ready to go. Using web 2 with backlinks speeds up the whole ranking process, you do not need to create a second tier of links.

          If you want to use new niche relevant web 2s for tier 1 and expired web 2s for tier 2 go ahead, it will certainly not hurt your rankings. However I don’t have the time for that, I just drop a link to my money site from the Tumblr that has decent backlinks pointing to it.

          You need to have the social signals pointing to your money site, Google Plus and Facebook are the most influential. Social signals are a ranking factor and will boost you up the SERPs.

          • Thank you so much Nick, I will try this and keep you posted about it here.. 🙂

            • No problem Brij. Keep us posted on how you get on. Hope you rank no. 1 soon.

      • U really don’t understand what you mean by don’t get too hung up on exact match keyword. Some where at the post beginning, you said and I quote you

        This is what works really well for me:

        Click Here

        So your first backlink from a Web 2.0 site will contain your keyword in the anchor text.

        Your second lot of content on your second Web 2.0 will use your money site URL for the anchor text.

        The third Web 2.0 backlink will have “click here” as the anchor text. Your fourth Web 2.0 backlink will use your brand name as the anchor text.

        On your fifth Web 2.0 you will go back to the beginning of the process and use your keyword as the anchor text and so on and so forth until you have used all your Web 2 sites.

        Now my question is , how does this correspond with the % you are giving us. Some people say URL,main keyword(which is exact match) and generic(click here) should be kept at 33% each, do you agree with this? Am confused with your % of anchor text

  • I love this strategy for ranking my sites. Thanks for this info, I have seen some good movement in my rankings in a week. I can’t thank you enough.

  • Hi Nick! I was amazed by your strategy with just less budget for seo ranking. I’ll be using this maybe next week.I have question about the expired tumblr domains. Can I used it all over again for another niche or it is only for a certain one? And Can I use this strategy for parasite sites? Thanks!

    • Hi, Donald…good question…yes you can use the Tumblr over and over to rank other niche sites, this is what I do all the time. You can use this strategy for any sites. Just make sure that you mix up your anchor text and get Tumblrs with lots of backlinks. Have fun….

      • Thanks for the response nick. One more question, Where do you get your articles for your tumblr domains? Do you outsource it?

        • I always write them myself. I first open my text document and create 50 unique headings. To get the unique headings I just pop my seed keyword into keywordtool.io. I then write a two or three sentences under each heading, sometimes I pop in a sub heading if I’m not feeling too lazy lol. Then I grab a load of related pics. Then I open Tumblr and copy and paste the text in there, add the image and the backlink. I sometimes pop a random related youtube video into the post too. I never out source my content, I need to be certain that it is unique. I will save my 50 headings and articles and then I will spin them using spinbot.com and pop them on my next lot of Tumblrs. I just get my head down and get writing, when you get cracking it doesn’t take too long. It’s certainly worth the effort if you have selected the right keyword to rank for.

          • Nick, I came here again because of your update. My question is can I outsource all of your steps? Like buying backlinks(expired/new) from reputable seller on Seoclerks. Thanks again Nick 🙂

            • I really do advise that you do this yourself. It’s very fast to wrote content for your Tumblr blogs, you only need a few sentences. But you can use these gigs, however I have not used any of them so I can’t vouch for them. Use them at your own risk.

              This gig will create you a new web 2.0 link wheel, something that I did in month 2.

              This service will also give you a new web 2.0 link wheel.

              I always do it myself to ensure I use good expired Tumblr and Weebly blogs with great backlinks to them. This way I know that the content is unique, the article titles are all different, this ensures that the backlinks get indexed and your rank improves.

              If you try any of these services let us know if any of them are any good 🙂

          • Okay Sir , I ordered tumblr blogs. http://a.seoclerks.com/linkin/310540/social-points/440650/I-will-give-you-expired-Tumblr-Blogs-with-10-Backlinks . He change his description and I didnt notice it. He will just give 1 expired tumblr blog with 10 or 10+ Backlinks. (registered by unique email) I thought it was 7 expired blogs. Please edit your description to sir Nick! Any seller who sells many tumblr blogs that is not expensive? thanks

            • Thanks for pointing that out to me Donald, I will update the description shortly.

              ALL IS NOW UP TO DATE.

            Hi. Nick. Sorry, I have 1 more question

            You said that you wrote your own content for expired web 2.0 sites. How about:

            – New web 2 site: Did you write content for them? If yes, did you write serveral articles and spinned to use?

            – Docs Share: you said you spinned from web 2.0. Was they contents of new or expired web 2.0?


            • Yes, I wrote the content for the new web 2 sites myself. You can get some one to wrote the articles for you. You can buy 30 articles (400 words each) here for just $14. I wrote 8 unique articles for tier 1, then I spun them for tier 2 using spinbot. The content for the Doc share backlinks came from the new web 2 sites, you can take parts of each of the 8 articles and put them into spin bot to make a completely new unique article. To check that you have a unique article pop it into plagium.com (free).

          • Anh Thai
            2 years ago

            For example of ranking kw “web 2.0 backlinks”, the articles of expired web 2.0, you also wrote about “web 2.0 backlinks”.

            How about the articles of new web 2.0, are they general topics? Actually, writers cann’t write 30 articles with $14. I saw that they know some expired articles resource.

            • For the new web 2 I wrote about “web 2.0 backlinks” too, keep on topic for the page that you want to rank. You use the new web 2 sites to get the keyword that you want to rank for in the sub domain URL. This way you get a good mix of backlinks from expired and new web 2 sites.

      • Hi Nick, Im back to say to you that I rank 18 now from 92 with your method. I’m so happy that it works like a charm. By the way my niche is low competition niche. Can I rank niches with medium to high competition with your expired web 2.0 ranking strategy? thanks

        • Hi Donald, good news!!! Keep going and you will rank no. 1 in around 3 months. It works for me every time. This method works for up to Competition score of 30 (medium to high) yes, I have not tried it for any keyword higher than this. I always find low competition long tail buying keywords that are sure to covert high for a great return on my backlink building efforts. Let me know when you hit no. 1 🙂

          • hi nick, im here again. im stuck with rank 16 now for almost 5 days. any advice to make it on the first page. thanks

            • Sorry for the late reply Donald, I missed your comment. It takes time to hit the first page, it all depends on your keyword too. Like I say, check your ranking every 30 days. Keep focused on building the backlinks at a steady rate. Add 10 in your first month, do the new web 2 backlinks in your second month and then drop 15 to 20 expired Tumblr backlinks in month 3 and you will most definitely be on the first page.

          • Hello Nick, It’s okay upon waiting for your response. I’m on page 1 rank 5 now. I will rest for a while now backlinking my site. I will try to build another niche for next project. Can I ask for advice for a growing/trending niche sir nick? Thanks

            • Page 1, Rank 5, Great News!!! Keep on going…you will hit the top spot.
              Yeah no problem, just drop me an email and I will help you out 🙂

          • I drop you an email Nick. Please check. Thank you 😀

            Hi nick, thanks for the response in my email. Good news! The niche I was ranking was already rank 3. I rest it for 2 weeks. I will try to add some expired 2.0. I’ll be updating here again if it goes up to page 1.

          • Hi Nick, Im back here. I got #3 for the one I ranked but sadly I got hit by google. I am trying to 301 redirect my site hope I can get back to the position. What are your thoughts of latest googles algorithm?

            • I have not been penalised by Google using this method at all yet. I think that your site will return to the index if you have only just started building backlinks to this particular site you are trying to rank. The latest Google algorithm changes have not affected the web 2 backlinks method, it still works.

              Quick question. Do you have a mobile friendly site?

              Also, have you been mixing up your anchor text and made sure that all the backlinks are getting indexed. Remember to build the backlinks slow and steady over 3 months.

  • Tumble is probably dead, PA is 97 when checked with moz bar plugin and back links is millions on each and every tumble, please tell me how to build pbn in less than 15$ for each with cloud flare. Thanks

    • Tumblr is not dead, MozBar just not showing the metrics for sub domain. It’s all about the backlinks that the Tumblr has. If the Tumblr has lots of backlinks with high PA pointing to it then it will all pass onto your site and improve your ranking. There is an article here for using cloudflare to build PBN backlinks.

  • let me ask this noob question about pbn and footprints, i have a 14 post wordpress website which i want to rank, will i be leaving footprints if i put all 14 posts on 1 pbn site?
    like this


    TO 1 pbn site


    maybe in 1 post on the pbn site or in different posts,

    to better understand this , example
    walmart is my website and amazon is the pbn website,
    can i put all my posts from walmart to amazon pbn ? will it leave footprint?

    • Hi Gids, I would not do that, that is a big footprint yes. You need to put your 14 posts on different sites for maximum effect. The 14 sites will need to have unique IPs, use different themes and be published on different platforms and not be interlinked. Try not to mix up the expired web 2.0 backlink startegy with a PBN ranking startegy. You can use the same web 2 site to rank different pages on the same money site.

      So putting all your posts on one site and linking them to your money site will be pointless. Use the guys that sell PBN backlinks that I have recommended on my do it yourself seo guide, I have used them successfully to rank sites. They are great, and it’s cheaper than building your own PBN. For the price of one domain name you can get 5 PBN links, they are well worth the money. If you do go ahead make sure that you mix up your anchor text as I have suggested on the site.

  • OK, thanks, I just bought 5 tumblrs now but there’s no way to see the tumblrs backlinks anymore, unlike before you can use moz and see Firefox plugin and see it instantly , I have tried majestic and it fail. Any suggestion ?

    • Yep, you have two options, both are free online tools, so no software to download 🙂 This one will find the most backlinks (no sign up required), just pop the URL in there and it will find all the backlinks pointing to the Tumblr. I also use the backlink checker over at RankSignals.com because it lets you know if the backlink has been removed or not, if the backlink has been removed then there is no ranking juice passed on and it will not have a great affect on your ranking status. With RankSignals you do need to sign up for an account, but it is free and is well worth doing so.

  • OK thanks

  • I just noticed this morning that MOZ BAR FIREFOX PLUGIN IS NOLONGER WORKING NOR SHOWING METRICS again, bad and hard thing is happening now

    • That’s no big deal, it’s all about the backlinks anyway. Make sure your expired web 2 site has great backlinks pointing to it and you will be ranking in no time at all. Look at the MOZ Metrics for the sites that give a backlink to your expired web 2. If the sites that backlink to your expired web 2 have good metrics then your expired web 2 sure will too.

  • Hi Nick,

    First off, great article. I’ve been purchasing and using expired tumblr blogs using this guide and bought 1 expired tumblr account to experiment but I have a question and something I can’t seem to find a direct answer to if you can give me a hand and clarify.

    1) I’ve added the html code in the description to add a link to my website (without the redirect) and two things happen.
    – When i’m previewing my own blog, I see a “denied:” tag right before my targetted URL. When I click on it, it obviously doesn’t work and is just a dead link.

    – When I preview my blog under a cached browser as a guest and hover over the link, it changes to the domain of my tumblr followed by “target URL” which also doesn’t work.

    Is this something that was just updated on tumblr to combat direct backlinks or am I doing something wrong?
    the tumblr username is gobirdcagesforsaleblr.tumblr.com if you want to see and it’s really confusing me.

    2) Also I’ve noticed that tumblr does have redirects on any urls present on blog posts. Is that going to affect the amount of link juice it passes? Or does the redirect not pass it at all?

    Thanks and hope to hear back soon.

    • 1. Your code must be wrong. Send me an email of your Tumblr blog and I will take a look for you. You also need to verify your email used for the Tumblr to allow the backlinks in the description to work.

      It definitely sounds like your code is wrong, take a look over it and make sure it looks exactly like it does in my tutorial. The backlinks on Tumblr are still working I have just checked.

      Just had a look at your Tumblr. The code is wrong.

      You appear to have a link tag within your H1 tag.

      Delete everything in your Tumblr descritpion area and copy this into it exactly:

      Correct code for Tumblr web 2.0 backlink

      2. The re-direct still passes on the ranking juice, you do not even have to do the added link in the description if you don’t want to. Make sure you get your backlinks indexed to see their effect.

      • Hi Nick

        Thanks for the reply. I’ve went ahead and did the changes (seems like i forgot the

        under the header portion.

        I copied & pasted the code you provided on the blog description but I still see the same issue and I checked to make sure my email is verified on tumblr and it is.

        I sent you an email with my tumblr blog if you still don’t mind looking at it for me. I would really like to see what the issue is and I’m sure it’ll help others who may have the same problem in the future.

  • Hi! Someone in my Facebook group shared this site with us so

    Hi Nick

    Congrats for ranking no. 1. Would you please tell us how you find low competition keywords. I use keyword revealer but it is a slow process as you are not automatically provided the keyword difficulty.

    • I cover this in my do it yourself seo guide. Using MozBar alone is a quick way to give you a rough idea how easy it is to rank for a keyword. Go for long tail keywords, you are looking for sites ranking high for that long tail keyword that have low page authority and very few backlinks. Also take a look at the top ranking site, if the content is thin then you know that you can beat it for sure. If no site has the long tail keyword exactly in the Title, Description or URL then you are onto a winner. You can assess a keyword fast just with the use of MozBar and by doing the keyword Google search. You do not need to use KeywordRevealer at all. Grab a load of long tail keywords from the Adwords keywords tool, Google them and use MozBar to assess the competition, quick and easy.

  • But I told you mozbar is not working since few days ago, so how come you still refer us to mozbar?

    • MozBar does not work for Tumblr sub domains. MozBar works for calculating keyword competition in the SERPs, which covers Samuel question.

      Don’t use MozBar to evaluate the authority of a web 2, take a look at the backlinks that point to the web 2. You can use MozBar to evaluate the sites that backlink to the web 2 (if they are not web 2s of course), if those sites have high page authority then you can be sure your web 2 will have high PA too.

      It’s all about the backlinks that point to the web 2 site, volume and quality. All that lovely link juice will pass onto your money site and rank you no. 1.

      It works a treat, I use it over and over. It’s a shame it takes 3 months to achieve, but if you hit the right keywords you can be raking in the cash on auto pilot.

      Give it a go and let us know how you get on. 🙂

    are you talking about the mozbar firefox plugin? if so its not even showing any PA and DA at all

    • Yep, it’s working for me in FireFox and Chrome. There has been an update recently. Maybe you should go to Add-ons in FireFox and completely remove MozBar and then re-install the latest version. Just tested on all browsers and it’s definitely working in the SERPs and on individual web pages.

  • OK, its not working for me here even when I have removed and re-install, what’s the latest version you are using and also Firefox version? So I know where am going wrong

    • I am using the latest Version, which is MozBar 3.1.66 maybe you need to update your browser for it to work with the latest version? If you still experience problems then you can get help from their developers here. I am also using the latest version of FireFox.

    This is so awesome TUT, many thanks i;ll implement this for sure 🙂

    Just one thing that keep me wondering, sorry if i did’nt understand enough,

    1. How much article that you wrote for “each” property (tumblr, weebly, etc) and how much link did you put on each property ?

    Usualy i only put “one” link to my money site, since i heard that multiple link on the same property will only count as 1 backlink by thet great G.

    Is that true?

    2. About posting post on day 4 here :

    Are you posting those post on the “same” property or on different property for “each” post ?

    Thanks for the answer, and i definitely bookmark your site for another great tutorial =)

    • No problem Yunita.

      1. I write about 100 words for each Tumblr article post, I also put an image and video on there with one link to my money site. I write a bit more for Weebly, between 300 and 500 words.

      I only put one link from each Tumblr/Weebly to a page on my money site. You can link from a single Weebly/Tumblr blog to many different pages on your money site, if that makes sense? There is no point in using the same Tumblr/Weebly to build backlinks to the same page on your money site over and over. But you can use the same Tumblr/Weebly to build backlinks to many different pages on your money site.

      If you write a piece of content for your Tumblr and put many backlinks within that one piece of content to the same page on your money site then only one of those links will count yes. I only ever put one link in each piece of content to my money site.

      2. I am posting the content on different Tumblr properties yes. I used 20 different sub domain Tumblrs to rank this page no. 1.

      Glad I could be of help. If you have any more questions please ask. If I can help you rank no. 1 too I will. Drop me an email if you need further assistance. Thanks for stopping by.

  • which software you use for hiding ip address?

    • I did use free-hideip.com and it is free. However it makes your browser run really slow, so I stopped. I do not mask my IP anymore, I have not had any problems so far. Just make sure that you do not register too many expired Tumblr sub domains in the same account, I register 6 per account without any problems at all. You could also try hidemyass.com which comes highly rated, not used it myself though.

  • hey nick,

    thanks a lot bro after searching a lot now i found a good teacher here you are my hero man …awesome…..superb…chanceless…i like u very much man…waiting for your next article…

    • No problem Sam, glad you find my ranking techniques useful.

  • hi nick,

    I have one doubt may i use this system for brand new site or any criteria is there for using this system please reply me..

    • Hi Sam, yes you can use this system for brand new sites. When I started building backlinks to this particular page Rankers Paradise was a brand new site. Build the backlinks slow and steady to new sites, no more than 3 a day. After about 2 weeks new sites might drop out of the Google index altogether, do not worry, your site will return in a much better position. This is called the Google dance, which happens to new sites every now and again. If it happens, do not panic, keep building web 2 backlinks at a steady rate and you will rank no. 1 after about 3 months. Just follow my ranking schedule and you will be okay.

      • Thanks a lot nick i will follow your guidelines in case any problem face i will let u know…


        • No problem, let me know if you need any further help 🙂

  • Hey Nick,

    Thanks for helping me with the description portion as I finally got it fixed. I just have another question.

    I think I stumbled across a goldmine on finding my own expired tumblr account that has an extremely high PR and ridiculous amount of backlinks and I have a stupid question. Once you register the account, it’s obvious going to be blank and empty right?

    Only reason I asked is because all the expired accounts i purchased usually has content so I don’t know if it’s existing from the previous blogger or if the person who sold it added links in the past and let it age.

    • No problem Alan. After you register an expired Tumblr account the blog will be empty yes. The person that you purchased the Tumblr off will have added the content.

      • Got it.

        Just letting you know, the MOZ bar is no longer working for checking the PA of any site. After investigating the reason it just seems that it doesn’t work on certain browsers including firefox. I even tried using scrapebox and their PA checker addon and scrapebox support responded that MOZ API is now blocking third party apps.

        Is there any other sources you’d recommend for checking the PA of expired tumblr blogs? Most website that check “PA” usually checks the ROOT tumblr.com site (which is always 99) and not the individual tumblr pages which is what we’re looking for.


        • The PA of your Tumblr is something that you do not need to be concerned about, it’s the backlinks that pass on the ranking juice, it’s the backlinks pointing to the Tumblr that will improve your money sites ranking.

          To check whether a Tumblr is worth having or not you need to check how many backlinks the Tumblr has. I show you which free tools to use in my tutorial. They are:

          smallseotools.com/backlink-checker for the no. of backlinks.
          ranksignals.com to find out if the backlinks are still live.

          You can then visit the sites that backlink to your expired Tumblr and use MozBar to check their PA and DA. You can be certain that your expired Tumblr will have a high PA if it has lots of backlinks from high PA domains.

          Like I say, all you need is a Tumblr with lots of backlinks. A Tumblr with 10 backlinks will be useful in ranking your money site no. 1. A Tumblr with one high quality backlink can be very effective too.

          • Hello Nick,

            I have over 500 expired tumblr accounts i scrapped so checking them 1 by 1 would be rather time consuming. Is there a free bulk backlink checker website that you could recommend?

            Thanks & I really appreciate the help so far.

            • This one is free and will check 500 URLs at once. This one requires proxies but is free to use too. I like to check the backlinks to each Tumblr one by one, I check a few of the sites that backlink to each Tumblr using MozBar, if you get a few sites that backlink to you Tumblr with high PA and many backlinks to it you are onto a winner. It takes time but is well worth it, you won’t need to check all 500, just go through them and register them one by one. It’s worth taking your time so that you can be confident that when you use them to backlink to your money site you are definitely going to get a jump in the SERPs.

    I have recently started a blog, the info you offer on this site has helped me greatly. Thanks for all of your time & work.

    • No problem Julene, glad I can help. Get building those web 2.0 backlinks and start ranking high.

  • Thanks for sharing your info. I truly appreciate your efforts and I will
    be waiting for your next post thanks once again.

  • Hey Nick! Another question.

    As far as using tumblr and weebly to produce content for backlinks, should we be making it as humanly natural as possible? Or do they just need to have content to avoid being “inactive” and flagged for removal?

    After finding expired 2.0s, what do you think is better to do as far as productivity and saving time

    A) Spend time to make the blog look like a real person (multiple filler post, profile photo, background, bio, scheduled post) while adding your articles/backlinks every few posts
    B) Don’t bother, just post your unique content + backlink and post once a month to avoid inactivity

    I’ve been doing option A but it gets kind of time consuming. Your guide sort of seems like option B and some gigs on fiverr (the 5/5 tumblr/weebly you recommended) seems to do option B as well so I just wanted your opinion.


    • I always go for option B. Make sure you get your unique content on the blog with an image and a video and of course your backlink. Then the most important part, get your new post indexed in Google search. I post on my blogs at least once every 3 months, I am always setting up new niche sites so I am constantly building backlinks. I always use gigs on Fiverr and SEOClerks to find my blogs, saves me loads of time. You can speed things up by writing 3 pieces of unique content and then spinning them using spinbot.com. If you are short on time just add a few lines of text on a Tumblr, an image and a video, really quick to do and easy to index too.

      • Gotcha. I’ll go ahead and start doing that then.

        So for the last part for the image and video… Is that all on one post? Or separate individual posts?

        • Coolio. It’s all on one post. Image at the top of the posts, a few lines of text with your backlink, then a video at the end of the post. I always pop a heading in there too, pop that before your few lines of text. My Tumblr posts index every time. Have fun 🙂

  • Hi Nick,

    Great post! I got a question, I’m building some web 2.0 backlinks for my site.
    Is it ok, if the expired web 2.0 like tumblr is not relevant to my site or not the same niche to my site?

    Thank you.

    • Your expired web 2 does not have to be niche relevant. We are only interested in the link juice. Not one of my expired Tumblrs or Weeblys are niche relevant. Just make sure that they have a decent amount of links pointing at them, get your content on there, get it indexed and your ranking will improve.

  • when you post a tumblr blog and index it, how long before you see improvements?
    my money site posts that serplab says are ranking in position 15-20 are not there when i check on google, and not even in top 100, any idea whats wrong?

    i have build over 35 tumblrs and weebly for a keyword difficulty of 19 and below and my site is 1 month and 6 days plus social signals and 10 pbn posts, with few comments and diversity , the best so far are 2 posts ranking at 18 and 17 which i dont see in google search when i search.

    • You will see real movement at the end of month one. It all depends on how many and when you build and index the backlinks. This post saw movement after one week with just 10 web 2 backlinks in place, after month one you will be at the bottom of page two, or top of page three. It also depends on how competitive your keyword is, there are many variables in play, you also need to consider the other sites around you in the SERPs gather more backlinks too.

      To answer your ranking problem, are you checking your ranking on Google.com, Google.co.uk or any other. You will be ranked in different positions for different locational Google search results. Use Rank Tracker to check your ranking (it’s free) you can select your location using this software.

      If you want me to check your ranking just email me your URL and keyword from my contact page.

      Sounds like you have built enough backlinks to that page, just rest now for a while. You should be ranked on the first page of the SERPs after month 2. Then at the end of month 3 you will hit the no. 1 spot. I wouldn’t build any more backlinks to that page for now, just wait and do a ranking check in another month. If you are on page one then add a few more expired Tumblr backlinks and you will rank no. 1 after month 3.

    Thanks for web 2.0 links, this is my website – web-design-chennai.in I’m building some web 2.0 backlinks for my site. thanks…………………………….

    • It’s a cheap strategy for ranking a web site without having to build an expensive large PBN.

      • lingesh
        2 years ago

        If i do, like you it will come at first page for my keyword ?

        • Sure will. There are many factors in play to consider, like the other sites listed in the SERPs building and gaining backlinks along side you adding some to your site. If you pick an easy keyword then this strategy will work for you. Keyword selection is very important, you want a keyword that will provide a good return on your backlink building investment.

  • It’s awesome to pay a quick visit to this site and reading the views in
    all the comments concerning this web 2 backlinks ranking strategy, I am eager of getting experience in SEO so a big thank you. You have helped me a great deal. It’s good to see people are sharing their results here, it is a big help to know that it works. I will give it a go now. 🙂

  • Yes checking in google.com with serplab but will try rank tracker . another keyword just jumped from position 81 – 20th position, and am happy for this. Well since tumblr is free , I think I can outrank people with 50 pbn using 200 expired tumblrs ? What you think, thanks

    • It all depends on your competition as to how many PBN backlinks you will require. Go with the expired web 2.0 backlinks strategy first, give it three months for each keyword. If you are not ranked no. 1 after 3 months then power your site up with PBN backlinks, do them as a last resort. In most cases the expired web 2 sites will rank you no. 1.

  • Hi Nick,
    The keywords that I was targetting have now disappeared from google search results after some good progress. One of them moved from no. 61 to 30 last week. Is this normal or have i just been penalised by Google.
    I have used 10 tumblrs and I bought one of the fiver gigs that you mentioned in one of your blogs and everything went on well until this week. Please advise.

    • Hi Samuel, in some cases this is normal yes. It happened to this page, just wait a few days and it will return to the Google index in a much better position than it was when it left. If you have done 10 Tumblrs and mixed up your anchor text everything will be okay. This is more likely to happen with new sites, but it can happen to any site, it is called the Google dance. Do not worry, your site will re-appear, just keep building the backlinks at a steady rate and you will hit the top spot after around 3 months.

    • I had this happen to one of my pages today. I have seen it happen in the past, though. Most of the time it does come back. Sometimes within 24 hours. Sometimes a week later. And, yeah, it usually comes back stronger than before. Just gotta wait it out and keep trucking along.

  • lol, what could be wrong with my site ? i used to get 18 to 25 visits a day recently, but yesterday and today it dropped weirdly to 2 visits only and some pages are at 2nd page now. am very very annoyed.
    so far i have 42 tumblrs and 5 weeblys pointing to my site and 37 more tumblrs to go , probably will add more than that if need be. i dont know what could be the problem of my traffic

    • Hi Juli,
      You can email me your keywords that you are targeting and your money site URL if you need my help. Maybe you have picked keywords with low search volume? The traffic you were getting before might have been from social sites and not from Google organic search results.

      Like I say, ranking takes time, you need to be patient for the backlinks to take effect.

      You need to build the backlinks at a steady rate over 3 months. Just 5 Weebly and 5 Tumblr backlinks in the first month will do the trick.

      Do 15 more the next month and then 15 more the next month. Do not build loads in your first month, spread them out over 3 months, slow and steady wins the race.

      Your traffic will improve as your ranking does.

  • And now one of my keyword went from 12 to 47 since 2days ago. Seo can be frustrating a times

    • It gets less frustrating with experience, ranking takes time. If you have mixed up your anchor text and made sure that your content has been indexed in Google search you will certainly improve your ranking.

      • Everything is mixed and indexed on Google , well probably because when I build tumblr backlinks , it takes less than 48 hrs to see some movement, that makes me think things are slow on my end a bit. Seems like it take days longer to see real result. Well some other pages are popping up to 13th 15th 16th 17th 18th 19th 21st and 23rd positions . wish I will get to 1 soon . I have a 22000 Monthly search keyword at 31st position. My keywords are purely researched from keyword planner to keyword revealer , and moz bar together with ahrefs. So am sure for them to even come to 2nd page , in 1 month and 9 days, I think am on track. Thanks, will keep you posted, traffic returned back today and may supersede the old 18 visits a day cause am already at 16 now

        • You probably won’t see movement in a few days every time. I check my ranking every 30 days for each keyword I am trying to rank. After the first 30 days I aim to be ranked around position 10, after 60 days around position 3 and after 90 days in position 1.

          Keep us all posted on how you are doing.

  • Do I need to vary my anchor text with brand, naked url, click here etc if I am NOT targeting the main keywords of that page but rather other long tail keywords with much lower search volume?

    For example if my main keyword is web 2.0 backlinks, but I’d like to target other keywords that were ranking, like free backlinks, web 2.0 link wheel, expired web 2.0 sites etc, can I just use those keywords as anchor text?

    • Hi Owen, the content on your money site should be focused around one particular keyword….this will be in your page Title, Description and mentioned on page two or three times. This makes it easy to rank for that particular keyword, if you then try to rank that same page for different keywords it becomes harder to hit the top spot because those keywords are not in the Title, Description etc….you could go for other keywords but they would have to have very low competition to rank no. 1. I always focus around 1 keyword that I have researched and know for certain will be worth my backlinking efforts. You will always pick up extra traffic naturally for long tail keywords without any backlink building at all. If your google analytics account states that your page is ranking high for a keyword that you did not target that page to rank for, then yes you could boost it up the SERPs by adding some backlinks to it.

      • I understand what you mean.

        I do target the main keywords with other link building methods like PBNs and paid link-building.

        I’m asking because I have some keywords that are ranking in the low page 1 and high page 2 without me targeting them. These are very long tail keywords with low search volume and rather easy competition. Using free web 2.0s can save me some money and this is more like a “side project”.

        With these different non-main keywords pointing to the SAME URL, do I still need to drip feed the links over few months?

        What about long tail keywords pointing to DIFFERENT URLs, can I point many web 2.0s at the same time or do I still have to drip feed them over months? (regarding a sudden inflow of backlinks)

        • It’s not natural to get a huge surge of backlinks from a PBN in one month to a new site or a site with low authority. It’s okay to get a huge surge of Tumblr backlinks or even social signals because that could happen. Anything that will set alarm bells ringing avoid doing.

          I would definitely build the non-main keywords at a steady rate over two or three months. You have to be patient in the SEO game, if you target the right keywords monetary/traffic success will follow.

          Always drip feed your web 2.0 backlinks for long tail keywords. Like I say, slow and steady wins the race.

          If you need me to take closer look at what you are doing just shoot me an email.

  • Awesome to see all the new comments on here.

    Just wanted to drop by and note a few things.

    1. The Moz bar (as of today) is working again for checking Tumblr PAs.
    2. A few days back I hit page 1 for one of my keywords using this strategy. Only at #10 so far and it does bounce to #11 or #12 here and there, but keeps coming back to #10. This has been about 3 weeks after my Tumblr links were indexed.
    3. If you’re looking to mask your IP for registering Tumblrs I highly recommend using Private Internet Access (PIN). I’ve used it for months and it’s only like $7/mo and works a treat.

    I’m currently scraping more Tumblrs and building backlinks to other pages. I’ll report back if I see anything significant worth giving an update on.

    Just wanted to let people know that this does work, but it doesn’t happen overnight. The content creation is the biggest thing, honestly. But if you just sit down and focus you can get it done.

    • That’s good to know that MozBar is working again, thanks for letting us know Brad, I had not noticed.

      It’s great news that you are creeping onto page one. Have you had a go at the new web 2 link wheel that I used in month 2 to rank this page?

      Thanks for the PIN tip, I will take a look 🙂

      I am happy that it is working out for you, I know for a fact in a few months time you will be reporting back to me that you are now in the top spot.

      I agree that it is time consuming, with good planning you can work on 5 or 6 keywords at the same time. This is why I stress how important keyword research is, getting a good profitable keyword that is easy to rank for makes it all worthwhile. When you get one keyword at the top spot you can’t stop, you get the bug and this system works every time.

      Good to hear from you again Brad. Keep on pumping out the content…..

    • Moz bar for Firefox? Cause mine is not working. Am using it on crome only which is not convinent for me

      • I’m referring to Chrome. I use Chrome as my primary browser. I use Firefox (with CCleaner and such) for backlink building, but I use Mozbar on Chrome to check out the Tumblrs I scrape.

  • Just got some tumblr blogs with backlinks…so one of them has over 2k external backlinks and 98% of the anchor text is the name of the blog (the domain without .tumblr.com). sooooooo thats pretty spammy and back i think?

    What do you think?

    • Hi Bobby, that’s not a problem. The anchor text used to the Tumblr is not important, it’s good that most of the anchor text is the name of the blog rather than an un related keyword to your money site. I would definitely register that Tumblr.

  • Fantastic blog you have here but I was curious if you
    knew of any message boards that cover the same topics discussed here?
    I’d really love to be a part of online community where I can get responses from other
    knowledgeable individuals that share the same interest.

    If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Bless

    • Anyone? I don’t use any seo message boards, I do my own testing.

    • There was one years ago, but it’s not around anymore. Most of the major ones (DigitalPoint, Warrior Forum, etc) aren’t worth your time. There’s a lot of junk info and complete garbage there. There are FB groups that are helpful. But not much else.

  • Hi Nick,
    I left you an email regarding a question but I don’t know if you received it or not but I’ll throw it here too so everyone can also see it if they have the same question.

    If we were to further power up the links with a tier 2 & 3, should we be powering up the main url page of the tumblr account or should it be the individual post url?

    For example,
    should we be adding tiers to abcde.tumblr.com or abcde.tumblr.com/post/1234(the post where the backlink is)

    • I would power up the main url page of your Tumble abcde.tumblr.com. All the links included in your blog posts sit on the main page too.

    • I actually do both, but it’s rather methodical.

      I dedicate web 2.0s to broad niches (i.e. 50 Tumblrs for weight loss, 50 for home goods, 50 for electronics, etc) rather than posting a bunch of links to varying niches on each one.

      So when I go to juice up my web 2.0s I send PBN posts, bookmarks, other web 2.0s, etc as backlinks to them with the blog URL as anchors, as well as mix in some generic niche terms. So if I were doing weight loss, for example, I’d have a small portion of the anchors for my web 2.0s main url be like “great blog about weight loss”, “inspiring weight loss journey”, “awesome healthy living blog”, etc.

      And then I also send PBN posts, bookmarks, etc to my actual post URLs as well. This is mostly URLs, generics (click here, this, source, etc), and also a few long-tails related to the keyword I’m trying to rank for that specific submission.

      I’ve done this quite successfully in the past. And I’ve actually got web 2.0s that I created from scratch (brand new registered ones) that are now PA 40-50 from doing that. And I’m ranking on page 1 for some moderately difficult keywords – even out ranking some big authority sites.

      It’s not always necessary to boost your web 2.0s, but I find that as long as you do it intelligently – it never hurts.

      • If I was going to build tier 2 backlinks to expired web 2s I would do both too. Simply because your Tumblr homepage with have a lot of outbound links on there and therefore the ranking juice will be watered down so to speak. If you fire backlinks at the actual post page it will pass on more ranking juice as there will be less outbound links on there.

        However, I take my time to scrape expired web 2s with really good backlinks pointing to them so that I do not need to add a tier 2. If you are building web 2 sites from scratch then you do need a second tier, the link wheel shown on my free backlinks page works really well.

    Hi Nick,
    I return to your blog off and on not only to read your detailed helpful posts, which are awesome by the way, but also to read the replies at the end where you explain to everyone in detail about the problems they are facing and discuss relevant points so that everyone can benefit from them. I have got so much from your blog that I feel it would have been much better had I stumbled onto your blog much earlier!

    I just would like to know if I can use the same email account to register all 10 or 20 tumblr sites, because I can neither afford a private internet access or VPN to avoid footprints. Besides, I have heard that if you open accounts with same email ids , all the tumblr web2.0 s will be banned after a few days and your links will evaporate as well. Your thoughts on this.

    • Thank you for your kind words Kajol. The most Tumblrs I have registered in one account is 8, this is without the use of VPN and I have not had any accounts banned. If one account gets banned you will lose all those Tumblrs registered in that account yes. Of course you could just re-register them in another account, but you would lose all the backlinks and content that you have created.

      So to answer your question, register no more than 8 per email address. I use mail.com, quick and easy to set up.

      To be careful you could use CCleaner (free) before you login every time to clear your cache and cookies. I do not do this, I have not had any problems at all so far, fingers crossed 🙂

    • Personally, I wouldn’t do anymore than 3 blogs to an email. Like Nick said, if the email gets banned you’ll lose all of that progress which can be a pain in the rear to re-create.

      You can buy a crapload of mail.ru emails off Fiverr pretty cheap that work great for registering web 2.0s. I bought 700 for $5 a while ago and only used about 10 of them so far. Works a treat.

      • I suppose it all comes down to how much you are willing to lose if your account gets banned. You minimise the damage with less Tumblrs registered per account. Purchasing a ton of email addresses off Fiverr can save loads of time.

  • i noticed something recently, when i add tumblrs , my rank depreciates badly from 12 to 75 now, and few other keywords loss 1 or 2 positions

    • I am currently working on 5 sites, all of which are on the first page of Google with 5 Tumblr and 5 Weebly backlinks alone. Well one is at the top of page two, but it’s about in the right spot. My ranking has never fallen using Tumblr backlinks, do you have your on page seo aspects optimised? Keyword in the TITLE TAG, DESCRIPTION TAG and URL. Do you have the keyword in the H1 tag and within the content two or three times. Backlinks alone will not get you a no. 1 ranking, you need great content too that is completely unique. If you want me to take a look at your site just send me an email with your URLs and keywords. I will be happy to help spot the problem for you.

      • Everything is set up properly setup on page is good, what I mean Is that I had a bounce when i added tumblrs since few days now, dont know what the problem might be, from 12 to 47 and I added another tumblr and it jumped to 70+ position. Well any software to get niche and keyword ideas for CPA?

        • Not sure about CPA, take a look at this. If you want to email me your URLs and keywords I can tell you exactly what is wrong. Without them I am just hunting in the dark. Have you run the keywords that you are targeting through my low competition keywords check list yet? This might well help you find the problem.

          • i will try these suggested and give you my keywords and urls

            • Okay, I will take a look for you when I get time to do so. We will get to the bottom of it 🙂 and get you ranked no. 1.

          • This happened to me too but I realized my keywords were just dancing between ranks every now and then. One of my keywords originally sat at 30 but jumped to 49, then disappeared completely, then 40, 32, and now it’s currently sitting in the sandbox again gone from the index.

            I think it’s due to the backlinks being created in a relatively quick pace. I made 10 backlinks in three days from high PR tumblrs and weeblys from this guide and I remember Nick mentioning that the kw disappears if you create links too fast.

            • That’s right Alan, you need to build the backlinks at a slow pace to a new site or new piece of content, make everything look as natural as possible. Create 10 expired web 2s in your first month, slow and steady, spread them out over the month mixing up your anchor text.

              This page disappeared from the index 2 weeks after it was first published, two days later it was back with a slight drop in ranking. I had to wait another week after that before the ranking improved.

              Don’t check your ranking on a daily basis, just check your ranking every 30 days to check if you are on track. This method works really well if done the right way.

  • Hey i’m bulding one web 2.0 everyday (have some awesome tumblr blogs with pa35+ and with over 1k external backlinks hehe) and i have some questions.

    1) what about the set up of the web 2.0 blogs? only 1 short post with picture/video + 200 words + one backlinks to money site + one backlink to wikipedia or so?

    because i heard about super web 2.0 blog with many filler posts and one longer post (about 500 words) with only one backlink to the moneysite. and only 2 backlinks to the money site per 1 tumblr blog…i am confused now…

    2) social signals. just bought 2350 signals for 3$ like you. and they need a description and keywords. how are you doing this? exact keyword and long discription…? please help me 🙂

    3) is it ok to build one web 2.0 every day? my site is not so old (about 3 months) and already on page 1 and 2 for most of my keywords (used theHOTH for some web 2.0 blogs and some blog commenting).

    thanks for your held 🙂

    • 1. Tumblrs I put two lines of text (backlink included). Then I put an image in the posts. Then I put a heading with the keyword in there. Then I drop a few more lines of text. Then I add a video.

      Don’t be fooled by the super web 2.0 blogs, they are going to take your more time to complete with the same outcome. If you don’t need to do all that extra work then why bother.

      Tumblr is an image sharing site, so you do not need a lot of content and the backlinks index real easy.

      Weebly I add 300 to 500 words with a video and image, keyword in the heading.

      2. I used exact keyword for social signals and just do a few lines of text for your description with the keyword in there somewhere.

      3. One web 2 a day is fine. I always build 10 in the first month. Take it steady and you will hit the number 1 spot after 3 months.

  • Hey Nick,
    I have another question that I’ve been wondering.

    So these expired Web 2.0 properties especially tumblr all seem to already be indexed in google. If the web 2.0 is already in the google index then we don’t need to spent time submitting it to pingbomb, link centaur, or submit the site to google right? Or is there another reason for doing so.


    • In some cases the index page will be indexed (abc.tumblr.com) yes, so you do not need to submit that to Linkcentaur, Pingbomg and Google Submit. However every time you do a new post it will need to be indexed (abc.tumblr.com/web-2-0-backlinks), submit your new post url to Google Submit. I usually only use Google Submit, if the url does not index then I will use pingbomb and Linkcentaur. Just about every time Google Submit works, cuts down on a little work 🙂

      • Okay great thanks for the reply. I completely forgot about the individual post being indexed as well. I’ll try using google submit first then check back in a week to see the status of it before I use the other services

        • You need to remember to index all individual posts to make sure all backlinks have maximum ranking affect.

  • i sent you my keywords and urls via contact page.

    please try to check before i conclude

    • I have sent you an email 🙂 you have some easy to rank keywords there. I have listed a few things that you need to do to improve your ranking.

      • ok, i have seen it thank, but why is one of my websites main page not ranked and the ABOUT US page is ranked at 27?

        • Possibly a duplicate content issue???

          • yes my about us page is a duplicated page on one of my websites. so must i change about us page regularly?

            • You do not need to change it regular. You just need to write new content for each page that is not published anywhere else on the net. Google will not index content that is already out there, you need to add something different that will be useful to people.

  • Hi Nick, I had a question,specifically over private blog networks.I want to know if it’s something I should strictly work onow or if I would be okay without using them. I am mainly concerned because I don’t want my back links deindexed by Google. So,with this being said, do you think all previous efforts with private blog networks will be worthless in the future because Google will catch on? Also, is a 500 word article notrankable by Google?

    • A web 2.0 network is a good safe option for backlinks. I would stay away from PBN backlinks to start off with, I only use them to power up the SERPs if expired web 2 backlinks aren’t cutting it. Most of the time you will rank no. 1 with web 2s alone.

      If PBN sites are set up in the right way and no footprints are left behind then there is no way for Google to catch on. This is why you have to be super careful when setting up a PBN, you even need to register hosting and domains under fake names and never inter link them.

      PBN backlinks will always be useful if they are set up right. They are a great little investment if you make sure that you do not leave any footprints.

    You are a nice guy, Nick. You answered all of comments.
    May I also ask you some questions?

    + I checked Google Keyword Tool and saw that web 2.0 backlinks is not a high competition keyword. Only 20 search per month for Google.com

    + For your affiliate and adsense site, how can you avoid thin content? Do you add different pages with different keywords?


    • 🙂
      Do not use Google Adwords Keyword tool to check competition, it is not SEO competition (how easy it is to rank) it is actually advertiser competition. I chose this keyword as a ranking example for the tutorial, I was not concerned with how many searches it has per month.

      To avoid thin content make sure your posts are 2000 words long, it doesn’t matter too much about how many pages you have….a micro niche site can have just 5 pages, just make sure that your content is the best for each selected keyword.

      • Anh Thai
        2 years ago

        Yes, you’re right. I shouldn’t use Google Adwords Keyword to check competition. May I have some other questions?

        + If I build a micro niche site for affiliate marketing with 5 pages, can all 5 pages optimize for buyer keywords? May I put affiliate links in all 5 pages. I heard that Google dislikes affiliate sites. In 5 pages, shoud I have have 1-2 pages for tip/trick articles (not buyer keywords) ?

        + When you build web 2.0, sharing docs or guest post, which kind of articles do you use?

        or Do you use some related articles as link building, seo?

        Thanks so much

        • Yes you can optimize all 5 pages for buyer keywords. It’s not a problem to have affiliate links on all pages. Google does not have a problem with well written problem solving useful affiliate sites. If you add diversity to the SERPs then you will rank high for your selected keywords, content quality and good backlinks always wins the day.

          You could just go for 5 buyer keywords if you can find them, if you only have 3 then fill the site out with tips and tricks pages.

          I will always get my keywords in the web 2 URL yes, if that is what you mean? I will write an article around the selected keyword and publish that on my web 2 site.

          • Anh Thai
            2 years ago

            Thanks Nick

            – Assume that you can find 5 keywords. Will you use 1 keyword for each page?

            – I wonder that if you get your KWs in web 2.0 url, you make Google to have an attention to you. Because you will have a lot of web 2.0 with same kws in urls that points to your money pages.

            – For beginning, do we need to have all 5 pages? Or Can we schedule per week/month per pages?

            – I saw that you have some new articles that mention about the diversity backlinks (not only web 2.0). Do you mean that now we should follow new strategies with diversity backlinks? Because in this article, you only use web 2.0 + social signal to rank your sites.

            • I always write content around 1 keyword to keep focused. So yes, 1 keyword per page.

              The keywords in the web 2 URL has not been a problem for me. The keyword will not be in the sub domain for your expired Weebly and Tumblr blogs, just in the sub domain for your new web 2 sites, so everything looks natural, you have a good mix.

              You can publish one page per week, some even pump out five pages to get the site started and then add a new article once a month. It really all depends on the project and how many keywords that you have.

              A good array of different backlink sources looks more natural. I used web 2s, social signals, 5x doc share, a video, an image share and a blog comment to rank this page. Go to the “Web 2.0 Backlinks Ranking Schedule” heading on this page to see exactly what I did including the anchor texts that I used.

        • Anh Thai

          Thanks Nick so much. I got almost of your points after reading the whole comment contents. I will try to apply your strategies in this blog.

  • Hey Nick,

    Awesome article. I have been using the tumblr backlinking strategy for a while now, but never knew that you could add backlinks in the description to avoid he redirect. So thanks for that!

    P.S. You might want to edit the code you provided for the description. I tried to use it but wasn’t getting the links to redirect. Looks like the problem was the ” “.

    • Thanks Nathan. Yeah the problem is with the quotation marks, they look perfect in my WordPress code, when I publish it is incorrect. I have tried to change it, no luck. I have put a foot note to let people know underneath the code. The code in the picture in the tutorial is correct, people can take a look at that for the working code 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by…

  • If I understand properly, for example am ranking for web 2.0 as keyword, to use the anchor text properly, I will start like this

    1 web 2.0
    2 web20.com
    3 click here
    4 jassons web 2.0
    5 web 2.0
    6 web20.com
    7 click here
    8 jassons web 2.0

    Is that what you meant?

  • Hey Nick,

    Have you had the problem of tumblrs no showing up on the webmaster tools?

    I built some tumblrs a few weeks ago, but I don’t see them being registered in my webmaster tools section. Is there another way to check them? Thanks

    • It does not matter if the Tumblr does not show in your Webmaster tools. Just pop your Tumblr blog post URL into Google search, if it is indexed then Google is aware of your backlink and your ranking will eventually improve. Make sure that you mix up your anchor text.

  • Hey Nick,
    Let’s say for example I have a real estate website I am trying to set up for SEO on low competition keywords.
    There’s a keyword optimized for each page. However, the page that has the most content is the “About” page. The home page just shows a slide show of a house or something.
    My question here is, does content have to be a certain size for the Google bot to consider it as ranking material or would a good rule of thumb with the content be as long as it is on the Google index and has low competition keywords optimized, it’s rankable?

    • Websites with unique long content posts of around 2000 words do perform better in Google SERPs. I suppose it all depends on the keyword, but if we are talking about affiliate review sites and even real estate sites you are going to need long content posts to rank well in the SERPs.

  • Hi Nick, I found this article around one month ago and I’m surprised with how practical this tutorial is. I bought the recommended 2350 social signals and just placed two backlinks from one Tumblr and one Weebly. My page was on page 8 before. Not sure if it’s caused by the backlinks or else, now the ranking dropped to nowhere. I browsed until page 20 still can’t find my website. I googled site:mywebsite.com and saw the page still indexes in the Google database. It seems like not the case mentioned in your tutorial that the page disappears from indexing. Any thought of my case? At last, I would like to thank you for your work. You are an inspiration to me. Thank you!

    • This page dropped from the index too, it’s called the Google dance. Do not panic your site will return to the index in a better position. If you have only created 2 backlinks you will need to add more in order to mix up your anchor text (just using your keyword as the anchor text all the time will hurt your ranking). Patience is key, it is going to take around 90 days to see a no. 1 ranking achieved. Also, use Rank Tracker to check your ranking it’s free.

  • i tried to delete 3 of my tumblr blogs post and did a new post to each tumblr, but the tumblrs failed to reindex and they are still showing my old headings/titles and redirects when searched on google, dont know why

    • That’s no problem, the posts have been deleted and so have the backlinks that you created. Just Google “Submit URL to Google” and submit each URL and they will index. Also you can change the Tumblr blog Title and Description in the “edit appearance” area, just click on the little person icon at the top right of your screen to get to it when you are logged into Tumblr.

      • That’s what am saying, I changed everything and then i submitted the site to Google submit url, and yet its still showing old headings and title on google search but when once I click on it , then I see the new post. Wonder if this new posts will index and if this tumblrs will pass link juice?

        • Old Title’s will not change in the Google search results for some time. When I change a Title tag on my sites it takes some time to take effect. Just wait a while and it will change. Your new posts will most likely index and certainly pass on that lovely ranking juice 🙂

  • Is it alright if I use this web 2.0 method for different pages from the same domain at the same time (a few days apart)?

    So for example in month 1, instead of 10 links to 1 page, i have 30 links to 3 pages. Will it be too many links all of a sudden?

    • Yes, I do this all the time. As long as you don’t build too many backlinks to the same page you will be okay. Slow and steady 🙂

  • Hi Nick, Thanks for your reply for my last question. I can’t thank you from the last comment because the reply feature for it doesn’t work. Not sure why. Anyway, I have one more question, which keyword density analyzer do you use for checking the keyword density? Thanks again.

    • For WordPress sites I use the Yoast SEO Plugin. For the content that I write for the web 2 sites I don’t check it, I just drop the keyword at the beginning, middle and end of the post.

  • Hello Nick, good day. Well something strange is happening, I deleted all my tumblr posts for the website I gave you via email, so as to properly optimise my anchor texts for all pages and make them look better than spammy , it was done last week and my site will be 2months by 16th, now I rebuilt the backlinks and my site dropped off , no keyword is even on top hundred , I have also indexed the tumblrs. I don’t know what and when this keywords will be back if they will, on the other hand I started two separate sites the same day I built those tumble backlinks and added them to the tumblr , now they are ranked at 18th and 24th respectively under 1week, I don’t know, any advice will do. Thanks

    • Hi Juli, just keep building the backlinks slow and steady and they will have a positive effect on your ranking. Just make sure that you follow the tutorial correctly. Sites that drop out of Google index usually return in a better position. Just don’t expect results right away, it takes 3 months to rank no. 1 using this method and there are many variables to consider like other people (your competitors) building backlinks too. No-one can ever say that a particular method will definitely rank you no. 1 or improve your ranking. This method does work, just stick with it….make sure all your on site optimization is done right…internal links, quality content etc.

  • Nick, my web 2.0 backlinks deindexed by Google, how come? And my ranking drops dramatically. Is this normal?

    • You are going to have to email me your Web 2 URLs for me to answer this. Ranking does drop at first, then it will improve if you build the backlinks at a steady rate mixing up your anchor text as suggested in the post.

  • Hi nick great article. I’m very lucky that I got your article very easy explained. After making Web 2.0 backlinks, will it appears in ahrefs when we search for that url?
    Sorry for the bad English 🙂

  • Hi Nike Good post.
    I have a question that, after putting


    this code and i hit the save button after clicking on continue reading it shows The URL you requested could not be found.

    • Your code is wrong. Please email me your Tumblr URL and I will email you what it needs to be 🙂

    Thanks for helping us bro, but something keeps baffling me, my site ranks keeps going from 20 to 70 , after applying your strategy, this has happened in almost 5 of my websites, I don’t know the reason.

    • In what time frame? It takes 3 months for this to work building the backlinks at a steady rate. I am using this strategy right now on five affiliate sites and they are all ranked on page 1 after one month. I have used this on many other sites, it works every time. Are you mixing up the anchor text as suggested?

      • Markson
        2 years ago

        Yes, they anchor text is properly mixed. Today marks the 7th day of this site that am talking about. Am not sure why its so , but it happens to my other sites too. At first it went from 40 to 25th to 75th position now. Taught the drop was supposed to be low like +1-5 drops maximum, but mine keeps jumping. I used keyword ,URL and generic anchor texts.

        • 7 days is such a short time. Do a rank check after 30 days. In your first 30 days build 5 expired weebly and 5 expired tumblr together with the social signals and then wait. This page dropped from the index all together at first, ranking does improve. You need to make sure that all the URLs get indexed, if one does not do another post with the same anchor text until it is indexed. All have to be indexed for the anchor text mix to take affect, too many exact match anchors will hurt your ranking.

  • Markson

    And some of my pages are indexed using Google submit URL , though I also submit to webmaster tool. But they have no rank since 7days now and keyword is very low just competiton of 10 ,checked with mozbar as well. Well, I keep finding 42k monthly search keywords, with competition of 11 and 10 and the sites are not properly optimized, no H1 ,URL, etc keywords on them. But my pages don’t show ranks

    • It takes around 90 days to rank no. 1. You have to build the backlinks at a steady rate, even more so to a new site or it can hurt your ranking. Make sure all the URLs get indexed.

      • Markson
        2 years ago

        I mean on serplab, my posts rank is still N/A after 8 days, I don’t know why. I see no rank on serplab.

        • 8 days is way too early to see any significant effect. There are many variables in play here, your competitors might be picking up backlinks too. To fully understand your situation you need to email me your URL and keyword.

  • Hi Nick,

    First of all, you article is superb!
    I just bought to one of the guys you recommended and I would just like to know whether you still bother to build followers on your tumblr accounts or you just leave it as it is when you acquire it?

    Thank you very much for sharing your knowledge man.
    May good karma return the favor to you well.

    • Thanks Steve. I do not build followers to the Tumblr, I just add the content and the backlink and then move on 🙂

      Have fun…

  • Hello Boss,
    I have been following your blog post for a long time now and i have decided to take action. I did a few keyword research and got 8 keywords with average of 27% competition and CPC of $3.50

    Boss please i want you to advise me if i would need A pbn for the ranking. if possible, can you give me approach to follow to enable me be at page One. Thanks and hope to hear from you.

    • Do not go for PBN backlinks at first. Start with expired web 2s in your first month. Second month do the new web 2 link wheel. Third month do 20 to 30 expired Tumblr backlinks. Only use the PBN backlinks to boost you to the top spot if you are not no. 1 after 90 days using web 2 backlinks.

  • Thanks for writing such an in-depth article on this particular topic. I had heard that Tumblr links were basically useless in today’s SEO climate, but I guess that just ain’t true; it probably means that many people just aren’t doing it right!

    Thanks again!

    • Tumblr backlinks work wonders if used the right way. You have to mix up your anchor text, build them at a steady rate and you are sure to improve your ranking.

    Hi Nick. I followed your tips to rank my site and it really improves my ranking.
    But I had an issue with indexing.

    – I use Google Submit URL to index backlinks. They indexed for several days after that they disappeared and couldn’t index again.

    – I checked Google indexing by typing this syntax on Google.com:
    site: urloftumblr.com

    Have you seen the same issue as me?

    • I have not had any issues will my web 2 backlinks being de-indexed. I would fire some social signals at them, go to Google Plus and Facebook and do a few posts about your web 2 sites with a backlink. Check out addmefast if you want to add more social signals for free to your web 2 sites to get them indexed.

  • hi nick,

    This is sam your loving fan i launched a new site on 14th of this month and i checked in google site:website.com i see all of my posts are indexed and see the posts in page 9, 10,11,15. but now on 19th i search with this command site:website.com 5 posts is gone from indexing and also i didn’t find nowhere.. what happen did u have any idea and also still i didn’t build any backlinks…?

    P.S I am eagerly waiting for your reply…

    • Hi Sam, sorry for the late reply, been on holiday 🙂

      Sometimes a new site will disappear from the index for a few weeks, don’t panic, it will most likely return in a better position than where it started. Remember it takes 90 days of steady link building to rank no. 1. If you need a detailed analysis of your site just send me an email.

    Hey Nick,

    I have a blog that I am focused on building a brand with for comedy, self help niche and building a youtube channel.

    Can I build web 2.0’s in certain niches and update them month after month and continually use them for all the blog articles that I create on my brand website?

    I plan on creating a new blog article on my website once a week for a new keyword each time.

    My plan would be to create like 5 to 10 new web 2.0’s for each of the different niches that I talk about with my brand money website. For instance, 5 web 2.0’s for fitness, 6 web 2.0’s for nutriton, 5 web 2.0’s for wealth building, 7 web 2.0’s for pick up arts, 6 web 2.0’s for daily fantasy sports and so on….

    Can I continually update these web 2.0s that i created weekly with new content and then use them to link to my blog articles every time I create one in that niche? Say I make a fitness article in March and use these the correlated web 2.0’s niches to link to that article. Can I then create a fitness article in august and use these same web 2.0’s to link to the august article too so as I continually update the web 2.0’s during this time with weekly content that doesn’t point to my website but to other non competitive websites?

    I was also going to create a bicycle wheel between all of these web 2.0’s linking them together for each niche to help build their page authorities (These are new web 2.0’s I have created). Do you recommend this tactic?

    I will also supplement every blog I create with your strategy of using expired tumbler and weebly domains and social signals in the beginning…

    Thanks for any insight you may have.

    This is my main website I am trying to do this with that will help me build a career and a following so my stand up comedy career. So the last thing I want to do is get a google penalty. But I also need to rank in google for my blogs to start getting traffic so I can build a following.

    • Hi Brian,

      Sorry for the late reply, I have been on holiday.

      Yes you can build web 2 sites around a particular niche and then backlink them to all your posts on your niche site. It’s great if you update them as often as possible, make them look as real as possible, build up some traffic to them, use them as an asset for your niche site and they will help you rank high.

      I do recommend the link wheel tactic, I am using it at the moment to rank 5 different web sites, it works a treat on the right keywords.

      Using expired web 2 sites along side the new web 2 sites is a great strategy when done the right way.

      I have not had a site penalized by Google using this tactic. Use your web 2 as assets, never spam, and you won’t have any problems. Look at the web 2 tactic as a way of promoting your niche site.
      It’s a great idea to add weekly relevant content to your web 2 sites, when I build my new web 2 link wheel I add the content and let it site on the site for 2 or 3 weeks, then I drop a backlink to one of my niche sites in there.

    How much weight does No-follow link carries compared to do-follow link?

    • A no-follow link does not pass on any link (ranking) juice, however it does get crawled. This means that a no-follow link can have a positive impact on your ranking. If the no follow link is contextual from a high authority site like Wikipedia it will most definitely help your push for the top ranking spot. You do need a good mix of do follow and no follow backlinks for sure.

        One of my sites have been stocked on 30th position , adding and removing 1 always and everyday, meaning 29/30. Then another hit 11 and went to 13th and its playing between 18 and 13th always , today marks one month, I have added some diversity few days back but no answer to break even into 1st page.
        The most important is that every time I create a post or page, it doesn’t seem to rank, even when the keyword difficulty is 0 and 1st page competitors are not even optimised at all.
        But you said whenever you create a post or site , you are seen in top 50 or so, mine is not the case, I don’t know why. I need your help.
        Meanwhile how do you know when a keyword levels up on serplab? Thanks

        • To hit the first page and eventually no. 1 you need good on and off page seo. Your posts need to be superior to the sites sitting in the top spots, just for starters you need to write more words, 2000 plus words always works for me. Get your on page right before you start to build backlinks, everything has to be done right for this to work. If you have thin content, visitors to your site will not hang around and your bounce rate will be high. Without taking a look at your site I can’t be exact, you can email me your URL and keyword for further advice. The backlinks have to be spread out over 90 days, start a spread sheet, make a link building plan and get started. My next post will cover this, it will detail a plan and show you how I ranked 5 different sites np. 1 in Google search over 3 months.

    hi nick i use your strategy for my site i wait one month to see the result:
    My result
    Kw1 1,competition score 22:
    I build 10 tumblr backlinks and for that kwd my site ranking increases from #7 spot to 3 spot
    Kw2 competition score 35:
    I build 23 tumblr backlinks and free backlinks and for that kwd my site ranking increase from #19 spot to 14 spot but again it decrees to # 25.
    Now what step i need to perform to increase my ranking ?

    • For your first keyword in spot no. 3 build the new web 2 link wheel I show on my free backlinks tutorial. Make sure that the web 2 sub domain has your keyword in there.

      In regards to your second keyword, I sometimes see a loss in rank, just keep building the backlinks as shown in my tutorial. It takes three months to rank no. 1. For your second keyword, have your built the new web 2 link wheel as suggested? If not, do that next. If you have already done this in the right way you can do 5 Doc Share backlinks. Then in your third month crank out 20 to 30 expired Tumblr backlinks.

    Hi Nick,

    Is there any risk in indexing url using google?

  • Hi Nick,

    This is SAM ur loving FAN!!!

    I hope you enjoy your holiday very well… i miss u lot…

    My site launched 10 days before now only i am going to start the backlinks building process i have doubts listed below pls give clear the doubt briefly..

    1.month 1st:-
    5 weebly and 5tumblr (different sub domain means).we only purchase expired tumblr and weebly right..this wants to niche related or any niches is ok…

    2. month 3:-
    15 Tumblr posts all are new tumblr or buy expired one?..

    Please solve this doubts incase any doubts popup my brain while doing this definitely i will disturb u…

    P.S:- Your one and only fan:)

    • Hi Sam,

      1. Yes, your 5 Weebly and 5 Tumblr need to be from different sub domains. They do not have to be niche related, they just need to have at least 30 backlinks pointing to them, the more the better. The niche related part starts in month 2 when you create the new web 2 link wheel, make sure that your keyword is in the sub domain.

      2. The 15 Tumblr posts are all done on expired Tumblr blogs with existing backlinks. These are all done on different Tumblr sub domains.

  • HI NIck,

    Thanks a lot for immediate response you are awesome bro!!!

    I will start the work…:):):)

    Well how long to index my 100 link wheels, 10 docs, 10 web 2, 10 different video on different platforms, 10 PDF, 10 articles ,10 blog comments etc.., am planning on doing this in 10 days, that’s indexing 10 everyday. What you think?

    • The new web 2 link wheel I do in month 2. I index 2 of those backlinks a day. The doc shares I do after the link wheel is complete, make sure all the pages are indexed, if not do another post. Then move onto indexing the doc shares in month 2, index 2 or 3 a day, slow and steady wins the race with seo.

      Then move onto the image share and blog comments, index one image share and do a blog comment per day. I personally would not do all that in 10 days. Follow my web 2 ranking schedule on this page, it takes 3 months, but it works.

    my site are getting thin content and spam messages from google , how to fix it? and where i can get good article writter?

    • Not sure about the spam thing. I only write my own content so I can’t advise on a good article writer.

  • Hey Nick,
    Here to report on my progress since I started reading this a month ago.

    So far I’ve made expired tumblr & weebly backlinks using the guide mentioned above and made sure the content was unique for each one. I experienced the google dance per usual with rank dropping, moving up & down the ranks, etc.

    Now that i’ve checked my backlinks with SEO spyglass it turns out my links were never indexed and added to help my rankings. I’ve been stuck at the same spot (+/- a few) since i started which is around page 3

    Does tumblr & weebly follow links even with the redirect? I remember discussing this with you but it just sucks my rank still hasn’t moved forward.

    Any suggestions on what I may be doing wrong? I can PM you my website details and tumblr pages if you don’t mind taking a look.


    • Hi Alan, Tumblr and Weebly links are crawled and will have a positive effect on your ranking if built the right way. Don’t worry about the backlinks showing on SEO Spyglass, you need to make sure that Google is aware of your backlinks, pop the web 2 url into Google search, if it is indexed then it will help your ranking, of course you need to get them all indexed in order to mix up your anchor text in the right way.

      You can drop me an email and I will take a look at your Tumblr pages.

  • This is an inspiring and motivational post!

  • Hi Nick, this really is a great article. I bookmarked it and I will be coming back many times in the future. 😉 I am really having trouble getting started with the backlinks thing for my amazon niche site but this seems like a really good way to go.

    One thing I don´t quite understand: What URLs do I have to index to get google to crawl the direct links in the Tumblr description sections?

    Thank you so much for this awesome resource.

    • Hi Jens, thanks for stopping by. You need to get your web 2 home page indexed in Google search (keyword.tumblr.com) and then you also need to index each and every post page that you add to your web 2 site (keyword.tumblr.com/post-about-web-2-site-backlinks).

      This lovely little ranking strategy is a great place to start. If you have the right keyword it will certainly rank you no. 1. If you have a tough keyword you might need to throw some PBN backlinks into the mix.

  • Hi Nick,

    I ordered 5 tumblr and 5 weebly backlinks as per your recommendation in this page..

    I got 5 tumblr & Weebly links but this tumblr & weebly blogs have PA 30+ but i check with Ranksignals.com all links are removed for all tumblr blogs and weebly blogs..

    so no link juice passed right…

    Now what action should i need to take again…

    P.S: Your one and only loving fan

    • That’s correct, expired web 2’s without backlinks will not have a massive effect on your ranking, it means you will have to build a tier 2, which defeats the object of using this ranking system. When I have ordered that particular gig in the past I always ask her for expired web 2s with lots of backlinks, if the backlinks no longer exist the expired web 2 will soon lose its PA. If you message Abigail she will more than likely replace the web 2 sites for you.

  • Hi Nick,

    I need one more doubt clarification how to analyse the tumblr & weebly blogs backlinks in Moz & majestic…

    Give one good analysis example for moz and majestic please..Kindly request…

    P.S:One and only fan SAM

    • Don’t bog yourself down with too many time consuming web 2 site tests. Just use the MozBar extension for Chrome or Firefox and take note of how many backlinks the web 2 has, the more the better. Then go to RankSignals to check that most of the links are still live, web 2’s without backlinks are useless in this strategy. Then you can visit a few of the sites that link to your web 2, if even just a few of those sites have a high DA and lots of backlinks pointing to them it is a great web 2 to snap up, all that ranking juice flows down to your money site through the backlinks. Don’t waste too much time on this step, if there are many backlinks pointing to the expired web 2 then get it registered and start using it’s ranking power. Have fun…

  • Frankly saying.. this post should rank naturally. It deserves 1st spot. I’m going to try your method for sure. For now i’m booking this post.

    Do think only expired domains are required or new domains also fine in ranking?

    • Thanks Arun. I use expired and new domains, they make a great combo. The expired domains do not have your keyword in the sub domain url, you can get your keyword into the sub url on new web 2 sites, works a treat. Mix them up for maximum effect.

  • Hi Nick

    You have awesome tutorials here 🙂 lately i got into the game of scraping my own expired tumblrs .I got a VPN so my laptop can be free to use for other tasks. I had installed there ScrapeBox V2. Other than PA i look for TF also and so i get some decent ones.
    Sometimes i get some expired tumblrs with PA over 60 and i checked with Scrapebox and it returns the 404 code and so i check them in the browser so tumblr returns that nothing in there but then when i come to register it says “this user name does already exist, the subdomain already exist ” but it’s not. Do you think Tumblr hold these Web 2.0 with high PA from registering?
    Did you ever experienced that?
    How to bypass this?

    • I do experience this problem, I don’t dwell on it. There is no way to get passed it, it’s rather annoying I know. I just move on and find a good Tumblr with lots of backlinks that is available to be registered.

    nice post it will very help full thank you very much i have one question

    how many back links will need tumblr expired page ?

    • I usually register expired Tumblrs with at least 30 backlinks pointing to them. However, if you find a Tumblr that has one backlink but it is from a very high domain authority site like Huffington Post or Wikipedia then I will snap that up too.

      • rajkumar
        1 year ago

        thank you very much for your support i have other question you saying you purchased 5 tumblrs back links

        but you posted Month 1: 5 Tumblr Posts. Month 3: 15 Tumblr posts how you do that.

        • Yeah that’s right, month one I did 5 Tumblr posts and in month three I did 15 more. So to rank this page no. 1 in Google search for my selected keyword it took 20 expired Tumblr blog posts all on different sub domain URLs. I need to change that in the post when I get time 🙂

            2. my site url was EX: rajkumar.com my target keyword : rajkumar how can post Anchor Text Variations

            • 1, yes this method will work for a site that is one year old. It will work for all sites no matter how old they are. For new sites, aged 0-3 months you have to build the backlinks less aggressively, 3 a day at the most.

              2, You will forget about the branded anchor text variation. So you will use:

    Nice post sir really athentic I have one question .

    Have u done tumblr’s and weebly’s with one ip or with different ips? Kindly explain it.

    Thanks in advance

    • All done on one ip without any problems at all 🙂

      • Abdul Nafay
        1 year ago

        so sir how many accounts u create for tumbler? per acc ho any tumbler?

        • Under one email I now register 3 or 5 Tumblr blogs. It is up to you really, it all depends on how much you are willing to lose should your account get closed. I have accounts with 20 expired Tumblrs in there. To play it safe register 3 per email.

  • Nick, I found a pattern that when I build links fast like 6 or 7 links a day no matter what links they are such as free backlinks, web 2.0, etc, my targeted page’s ranking will drop to nowhere. This happened last time and I changed the url and redirect the old url to the new one then the ranking comes back a week later. Now it happened for the second time I think what I do would only wait it comes back.

    My question is, how fast should we build the link. I know your strategy takes 3 months but is it cannot build more than 3 links a day? ( amount of 3 is what I assume which is the safe boundary) Also, is this normal anyway? Every time my page disappears from serps I worried I did something wrong.

    • It is normal for a site to drop from Google index and then return after it starts to get backlinks. You need to build the backlinks slow and steady to avoid a Google penalty, so 3 backlinks a day is perfect and will not do your site any harm. You have to make sure that you mix up the anchor text, and also make sure that each and every post that you do gets indexed in Google search to avoid exact match keyword anchor text over use.

  • Abdul Nafay
    1 year ago

    Sir Is same strategy with expired weebly? or only with tumblers?

  • Abdul Nafay
    1 year ago

    With high PA? or fresh

    • With high PA, but the most important thing is how many backlinks the expired Weebly and Tumblr has. These links filter down to your money site and boost you to the top spot in the SERPs.

  • Just wanted to drop an update…

    I have a few different keywords on page 1 in the 5th-10th positions right now.

    Even more impressive, however, is the fact that a URL I started this technique on just 2 weeks ago is currently ranking #33 for a keyword that gets 110,000 searches per month. I’m confident that I’ll at least hit page 1 for it, potentially the top 5. And that’s going to mean some serious cash for me.

    Cheers for the backlink method, Nick. It’s already increased my affiliate revenue and it’s about to get a whole lot sweeter.

    • That’s great news Brad, let’s hope you hit the first page for the big one. Keep building the backlinks and I am sure you will.

      • Yup, that’s the plan.

        Going to write up a bunch of articles for a new web 2.0 ring tonight/tomorrow (keyword-focused web 2.0s, not expireds) then blast all of my web 2.0s with some tier 2 links to boost them.

        Just going to keep rinsing and repeating the process the next couple months. It’ll take a bit, but I’ll get there.

  • Shabrish

    Hey really impressive post, I just want to know should we even use link centaur for indexing tumblr ??

    • Thanks Shabrish. I don’t use LinkCentaur for indexing anymore, I just use Google submit, works every time. If your Tumblr does not index after a few minutes then you need to bin that Tumblr, none of the posts will index ever. I have had a few recently that have not indexed, I just copy and paste the same post onto another Tumblr, then Google submit and then Google the URL, if it’s in the index I move on and grab loads more web 2.0 backlinks. It’s annoying that some Tumblrs do not index, but they are free and easy to find so who cares. Enjoy, and let us know how you get on 🙂

  • Hello mate.. let me say you congrats to make great tutorial, mate i get niche and make a site, but now google start dancing, my keyword show 90 position in rank, but when i ad 1-2 back link come to 41=42 in night,, but after 1-2 day again drop rank, can you analysts my site and give me any suggestion plz, i am also want 1 more fever from you,, you share tumbler hunter, can you share this type other soft.or online tool, to get all web 2.0 expired link.
    many thx

    • Your site will dance up the SERPs when you start to build the backlinks, just stick with the schedule posted on this page and you will be no. 1 after 3 months if you have the right keyword. The guy that developed Tumblr Hunter is doing an expired Weebly one too, just keep an eye on his site for when it appears.

      In all honesty, personally I would not go after those keywords.

      How do you plan to monetise your site?

  • Nick, when I use the code in red it shows my keyword and appears to work, but when I go to the tumblr site and click the links with my keyword and the continue reading it takes me to pages that cannot be found. Is this common?

    • Hi Lenny, yes there is a problem with the quotation marks. Change them, make sure they are facing the correct way and your code should work. You can email me your code and I will take a look at it for you if you are having problems.

  • Hello Nick, I’ve been doing a website with wordpress, and learning some seo (it’s the first time that i will do it but i already learned a lot in other websites. To submit Urls in google search console i need to use a gmail account, is there a problem that i submit all the tumblr accounts with the same gmail account? The keywords that im using are pressure washer and pressure washer reviews both have like score 35 in keyword revelear. Do you think that i can rank for those keywords with this method? Thank you for you time! And this is the best and most detailed tutorial i’ve seen about seo. Thanks

    • I would not submit all expired web 2 URLS through Google submit using just one gmail account, set up 5. If you only submit 3 expired web 2 URLs per day then one account will be okay, it all depends on how many URLs you are going to submit per day. If you are just trying to rank one site then one account will be fine, if you are going to submit 15 or more URLs per day then I would set up around 5 accounts.

      For the keyword “pressure washer” you will definitely hit the first page of Google.com search using this method, to hit the top spot you will have to get some PBN backlinks and then power them up with some expired Tumblr backlinks, which you can do in month 4.

      For “pressure washer reviews” this method will drop you on the first page too after 3 months, then you are going to have to get some pretty powerful PBN backlinks to hit the top spot in month 4.

      This method will not rank you no. 1 for your selected keywords, it will get you onto page 1. This method is a good place to start off for a new site. In month 4 you can start to build some PBN backlinks to your site to power you into the top spot.

  • Nice post. Can we rank amaozn product link, but not affilitated store using u method?

    • I haven’t tried it, but I don’t see why not. I am sure it will have the same effects.

      • Thanks for ur reply.
        I have two more questions for u.
        1, I submit the urls to google for indexing, it got indexed the first day.
        But when i check it few days later, i cant see that anymore.
        Does that means, the the urls or web2.0 got blocked?
        2, if i am doing amazon rank, do i use the direct url amazon.com/XXXX or 301 redirection url bilty.com/XXX. Which one will work better in ur method.

        • No problem. Sometimes the URLs do not get indexed, or they get indexed and then de-indexed a few days later. It’s annoying, but it does happen every now and again. You will just have to build another one, just keep going, most do stick in the index if you are adding unique content to them.

          I would use the direct URL and not do a 301 redirect bitly.

  • Punit Mahajan

    Hey nick,

    What if I use this method for ranking all my keywords?
    For 50+ Keywords, I will need 500 tumblrs or weebly…
    How safe is this for long term? As all backlinks are from one domain- Tumblr. com

    How will Google see this when done in Bulk? Like 500 tumblr links?

    • Hi Punit,

      It all depends on the time period. If you build 500 Tumblr and Weebly backlinks to the same site over a year or maybe a bit longer then it will be okay. If you blast your site with that many over 3 months it will look a little suspicious. I think it is a very safe long term strategy, even though it is building backlinks yourself, which you are not supposed to do. I like to look at it as promoting your site.

      It does not look natural if you blast 500 Tumblr backlinks at any site and that is all you have, you are sure to get slapped with a penalty. You need to have a good mix of backlinks, you can get that by getting backlinks from the sites on my free backlinks page.

      Use this web 2 strategy combined with the free backlinks and PBN backlinks and you have a very powerful ranking formula.

  • Great Post! I will definitely bookmark this one. My quick question is since we only have one description of each blog for direct url, suggesting we can rank one niche at one time. Am i right? Thanks in advance.

    • You can use one sub domain Tumblr and Weebly blogs to rank as many websites as you like. You can put as many links in the Tumblr description area as you wish.

    Awesome link building tips
    I have any PBN but never use web 2.0 backlinks
    However, after reading this tip, I will build the web2 backlinks now

  • Hi nick .
    First of all , thank you so much for this web 2.0 guide .
    I have a question , Can we use around 200 words article for the post ? and how many words description do we use for direct link ? and do we have to take care of keyword density and other on page seo rules in these web 2.0 posts ?

    And a most important thing Sir , The software which you have shown named ‘ Expired tumblr hunter ‘ , i am using it , but after the process completes , in result tab area , it doesn’t show any tumblr names and nothing to export from there . How to fix it to successfully hunt tumblr blogs for free sir ?

    • Yes you can use around 200 words for your article, in the description just do a few sentences, 50 words will do the job.

      Mention your keyword a few times in the post. Not sure about the Tumblr Hunter software, it works great for me, just open and click “start”, the expired Tumblr blogs will be listed in the results area. If you have a problem you should send an email to the developer, you might have found a bug.

  • And sir , Can we have your other contact options like fb or email , so that we can contact you if we have any queries about your most exciting web 2.0 guide ?

    There’s no days between Day 8 and Day 25. Does that mean to wait 17 days after Day 8 before starting Day 25? Thanks!

    I’m on Day 8 right now and it’s working great so far.

    • Hi Harold, That is correct, rest until day 25. If you want to do something in that time you can build some backlinks to your backlinks. Drop a few expired Tumblr backlinks to the Weebly and Tumblr backlinks that you have created to your money site. You can do tier 2 backlinks, however, if you have got expired Tumblr and Weebly blogs with lots of backlinks pointing to them you do not need to.

      You can use the time between day 8 and day 25 to prepare your content (articles and video) for your next lot of backlinks, which you will create doing the new web 2.0 link wheel.

  • Is there any penalize risk involved in the future for using web 2.0 properties?

    I am not sure about it and having a little bit of fear…

    • There is always a risk when building backlinks to your site yourself, you are not supposed to. It certainly beats sitting and waiting for it to happen, because it won’t. I like to think of it as promoting my content, when you get ranked the backlinks then come naturally. Web 2.0 properties are good because you can go back and remove the content or change the anchor text whenever you want to. Don’t fear success, go and get it 🙂

  • Awsome, but i am confused too some extent. I am focusing on Trust flow, cause i believe it is more authentic then PA DA, (its my saying only as a new bie). I have large no of expired tumblr with TF 10+ and PA 27+ registered on diffrent mails such as gmx or mail.ru. All IPs are diffrent cause i dont want to leave foot prints..
    Issue is that my backlinks are not indexing. I have tried backlinkindexr , linklicious etc. I am afraid, if i put theme in search console, they would probably leave foot prints. So what should i do to index them

    • Hi Talha, I use “Google submit” without any problems, they index within a few minutes. If you do not want to do that you can drop a backlink to your new web 2.0 post on Google Plus (hide your IP), this usually does the job. Also do Twitter and Facebook if you want to try and speed it up a little. This way you are still going to have to wait a few days, or even a week for it to happen, it will though. Like I say, never had a problem using “Google Submit”.

  • Hello, Thank you for this topic, but i have question- My money site is talking about 4 services A,B,C,D when i want to start create my link wheel I will create Ex:4 blogs – blog A talking about specific service with it’s web2.0 wheel, and blog B talking about other service with it’s web2.0 wheel, same action with blog3 and blog 4.
    can I linking those blogs and pointer them to my money website every blog to same section on my money site ?
    is that ok ?

    • That’s right, backlink each blog to the related post on your money site. You will need to do a new link wheel for each separate piece of content on your money site.

  • Hello Nick , i have a question for you .
    When i pasted the code in description and saved changes. Now when i saw that tumblr from my other pc link was there but when i click on that link it gives a 404 page . because it is taking that link as internal page not external page. For example if you have a tumblr with URL “ABC.tumblr.com” and you are trying to add your website in the description “http://www.rankersparadise.com” , after clicking it is taking to ABC.tumblr.com/http://www.farkispot.com . Can you please suggest any solution ?

    • its fixed automatically after some minutes . 🙂 though i would like to thank you for such a valuable post 🙂

      • No problem FArki. There is a slight problem with the code. You need to make sure that the quotation marks are facing the right way round. All has been explained in the post. Follow the link in the post to w3schools.com and you will get a working HTML Hyperlink code…just pop your URL in there and you are done.

        If you need any help just send me an email, give me your Tumblr domain and I will correct the code for you. I will email you a working code to get your working backlink.

  • Oh sorry i mean ABC.tumblr.com/”rankerparadise.com” which shows a 404 page. Any solution to that ?

    • Drop me an email if you still need help with this 🙂

      • Hi, I got the same problem. the backlink shows something like it http://blog.tumblr.com/” http://myblog.com

        Is it normal?

        • No, your code is incorrect. It’s highly likely that your quotation marks are facing the wrong way round. You can email me your Tumblr URL and I will send you the correct code. You don’t have to do the link in the description area, the ranking juice still flows from the link in the post only.

    Is it okay to do this with your homepage? Send 2350 social signals straight to a brand new website homepage, and point all the Web 2.0 links at the naked homepage URL?

    I just ordered the 2350 social signals you linked to and pointed it at my homepage. I used low percentage exact match anchor text

    • Social signals are safe to send to a new site. It is far safer to use a naked URL as your anchor for new sites. Keep the exact match anchor to 1 in every 3 backlinks at the most and you will be okay.

        Shoot – I ended up sending the 2350 social signals to a page on my site. Should I do anything to even it out, or just let it go? Thanks!

    This method still works fine or not?
    I usually use the PBN method to get ranking
    I will try this tip

    • Yep it’s still working. Just used it to rank 5 more keywords no. 1 on some of my affiliate sites.

    • can you share the PBN method ?

      • Get these PBN backlinks here. Make sure you write the content, go for 1000 words plus, make sure you add at least one related image to the post. Get the PBN backlinks indexed. Then scrape 50 expired Tumblr blogs with losts of backlinks or buy them here. Then backlink 10 Tumblr blogs to each PBN post. Get the Tumblrs indexed and Boom, your ranking will shoot up.

  • Hello Nick . I send you a mail , Can you check it please ? i send it two days ago. I need a bit help with my site if you can help me in that . 🙂
    I hope you will check it soon 🙂
    waiting for your reply.

    • I have sent you an email. Sorry for the late reply, I have been away for a few days.

    Thanks for this valuable post.
    A few quick questions:
    1) From tubmlr blogs when you will create a backlink from post will you target homepage or your post url ?
    2) When you will create backlink from tumblr description , which page you should target ( Homepage or post url ) ?
    3) When you say “Submit URL in google ” , you recommend dummy account with fake ip ? or we can use our own ip and own ip ? or any other precaution you could recommend .

    Thanks again 🙂

    • 1. I do a backlink from the Tumblr to the post that I am trying to rank, that post will be highly optimised for a selected keyword. If you are trying to rank your homepage for a particular keyword then you will do a backlink from the Tumblr to your homepage.
      2. The backlink in the description goes to the page you are trying to rank, the post or your homepage. If you are trying to rank for a particular keyword in a post, then the backlink will point to the post page.
      3. When I “submit URK to Google” I do not mask my IP. You do not need to, it works for me every time. Although I do recommend setting up a few accounts. Only do 3 to 5 URL submissions per account per day. If you are only trying to rank one keyword, then one account is enough.

      Let me know how you get on Khalil. If you need any help just drop me an email.

    Do the Expired Tumblrs have to have good backlinks, or just be high PA?

    The Tumblrs I got from the fiverr gig you recommended are all high PA but don’t have many backlinks. I’m wondering because you said when you register your own Tumblrs you want them to have lots of good quality backlinks?

    These don’t have any backlinks but they have high PA – that’s enough, right?

    • It’s all about the backlinks, the more backlinks the better. Don’t worry too much about page authority at all, we want those lovely backlinks to flow down to our money site. If the sites that backlink to the Tumblr have backlinks too it is even better.

      If the Tumblr doesn’t have many backlinks it can still have power, the sites that backlink to the Tumblr will have lots of backlinks, which is most likely why it has a high PA with just a few backlinks pointing to it. I go for Tumblrs that have at least 30 backlinks pointing to it. But if I find a Tumblr with one backlink and that backlink is from Huffington post, then I will snap that up too. See how expensive Huffington post backlinks are here.

      Also if the Tumblr is not showing any backlinks on MozBar it is possible that it still has some, run the URL through SEO spyglass or even https://www.ranksignals.com/. If they don’t have backlinks they are still useful, however they are not that powerful. When you order them ask for as many backlinks as possible.

    youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu are the best! the best web 2.0 backlinks tutorial thank uuuuuuuuuuu… 🙂

  • Sorry for bothering you again nick . But i haven’t received any mail ( i check spam folder too ) . Can you please resend it to me . Make sure email is correct ( k.ahmed2k19@******) . Thanks for your continuous replies on my comments . I am just looking for the email you send to me , as that is a continuous problem in rankings.

    • I have re-sent the email 🙂 It was definitely in my sent box. Not sure what happened there.

  • please just i have 1 question:
    what’s the tier 1 tier 2 tier 3?

    • You do not require any extra tiers when you get expired Tumblrs and Weeblys with backlinks pointing to them. The tiers are already there, that’s the beauty of this strategy. It cuts down on your work load. This is why it is super important to get expired Tumblrs and Weeblys with lots of backlinks pointing to them, as many as possible. If the sites that backlink to your expired Tumblr and Weebly has backlinks too all the better. It’s all about the number of backlinks. Of course if you find an expired Tumblr or Weebly with one high quality backlink from a site like Wikipedia or Huffington post then snap that up too. The power will flow down to your money site and boost you up to the top of the SERPs.

  • Am stucked on position 10 for over a week now, no improvement, what should I do to break even?

    • How long have you been building the backlinks for?
      Have you got all your backlinks indexed in Google search?

      • 3 months now exactly I have used diversity, tumblrs and even your other blasting method with namecheap domains. The namecheap method is 3weeks now.

        • You should be ranking higher than that by now. Drop me an email with your money site URL and your keyword. I will tell you exactly what you need to do to hit the top spot.

  • hi again nick sir .
    Can we use two backlinks of money site on expired tumblrs ( one to homepage and another to internal post ) . Do the link juice flow will be same if we use two backlinks or do it will divide and give less link juice ?

    And another question sir , expired tumblr hunter is working but in result area it is not giving any tumblr domains , then how do we scrape them sir 🙁
    Please sir give any solution so that we can use this software without any errors ?

    • Yes you can use two links in each web 2 post pointing to 2 different pages on your money site, the juice will flow evenly. It’s not as good as having 2 separate posts, but if you are short on time that is the way to go.

      You can use the free version of G Scraper if “Tumblr Hunter” is not working. You will need proxies with G Scraper, they are not that expensive. You can also use Scrapebox (not free).

  • Hi Nick, i build some tumblr web2.0 almost one month back but could not find them in backlinks in seospy glass. ?

    Is ther any other way to get them indexed.

    • To know if your web 2.0 backlinks are indexed just pop the whole Tumblr or Weebly URL into “Google Search”. If that particular page appears in the SERPs then Google knows that you backlink exists and that’s all that matters.

      To get your backlinks indexed in minutes just Google “Submit URL to Google” and away you go. If they do not index this way then they are not going to. This means you have a bad Tumblr or bad Weebly (SPAM) so just drop that sub domain web 2 and crack on with another one. Some just don’t index, it is annoying, but that’s the way it is. You can use the same content on another web 2 site if the one that you used it on does not index….it’s not the content, it’s the site (sub URL).

  • Hey Nick, thank for the awesome content. It will help me a lot as a newbie.I emailed you a question to clear some doubts pertaining keyword research. please check. Thank you.

    • Thanks for stopping by David. I will take a look at your email now. If you need any further help I am just a quick message away. 🙂

      • Hey Nick,Please I haven’t received a reply to the email yet.

        • I sent you an email yesterday. Maybe in your spam folder? I will re-send now.

    Hi Nick,
    (Some Questions)

    Just want to know how much time it takes to juice up fresh web 2.0 sites?

    I blasted 20 web 2.0 one month ago and still haven’t seen any improvement in serps of my money site. No any increase in serps just as it is ? Is it possible the site have been sandboxed?

    The domain is just 1.5 month old and i first did was made free back links with generic and naked and mixed them up in link wheel and after 10 days later i created 20 web 2.0 and did naked generic and keyword variation. But still no improvement.

    What may be the Problem ?

    • Hi Shashank, what is your on page like? Over 2000 words? Do you mention the keyword in the content top, middle and bottom?

      You should see some movement in one month. Using new web 2 sites takes a little longer, I always see movement in the first month. If your site is in Google SERPs then you will not be in the sandbox.

      Your problem is more than likely your competitors getting backlinks too.

      You are going to need to be a little more aggressive with your backlink building and use an exact match anchor every third backlink that you create.

      Don’t give up, keep building the backlinks and your ranking will improve 🙂

      If you need me to take a look at your site and your selected keyword just drop me an email.

  • Quick question! I am on Day 25 and it’s going great.

    You mention on day 25 that you use the Free Backlinks from http://www.rankersparadise.com/free-backlinks/

    You also mention a Fiverr gig that is pretty much the same thing:

    My question is: Am I correct in assuming that this Fiverr gig fulfills everything for Day 25, 26, 27, 28, and 29?

    Or should we do something else in addition to the Fiverr gig mentioned on the Free Backlinks guide?

    Thanks SO much!!

    , 26, 27, 28, and 29. Going great so far.

    • The Fiverr gig will get you:

      10 high PR Tumblr blog posts. You do not get the login details, they are from their private Tumblr blogs.
      600 Social signals from Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter and Linkedln
      5 doc share backlinks

      You get 10 web 2 sites with content added and login details. These are the web 2 sites that they use:

      If you do order the gig make sure that you tell them to use your keyword in the web 2 sub domain URL. They will not do it unless you ask them too. The last time I used the gig they put my branded site name as the web 2 sub domain URL. When you order the gig make it clear that you want your keyword as the sub URL eg; bestbreastpump.tumblr.com.

      You will need to log into them and link them all up into a link wheel. You could do 5 on tier 1 and 5 on tier 2. If you wanted 10 on tier 1 and 10 on tier 2 you would need to order the gig twice. Or you could use this to build your tier 1, and do the second tier yourself using the sites I have suggested in my link wheel on my free backlinks page.

      You also get a video including backlink from youtube.

      day 25: you get the video yes.
      day 26: you get 10 web sites. They are not linked up, you will have to do this. However they add the content for you.
      day 27: Not included. Although you do get 200 profile and blog comment backlinks to your new web 2s in tier 2. They even do a tier 3 to your web 2s with over 2500 Wikis.
      day 28: is covered yes with 5 doc share backlinks from scribd, slideshare.net, 4shared.com, dropbox and mediafire.
      day 29: Not covered. You will have to do these yourself. They are quick and easy, can be done in 5 to 10 mins.

      It pretty much covers most of it. You do get a lot of work here for your money. Just make sure that you get those backlinks indexed when the work is done.

      I usually do all this part myself, but if you are short on time the fiverr gig will ceratinly help you.

      • Is there anything extra you have to do to create the linkwheels, or is it the same process as other content links?

        It looks like you just post 500 words of unique content and put a link back to your money site using the keyword formula you suggested, just like the other links we’re building. But when you say “linkwheel” it sounds like there’s more to it?

        • It is the same process as the content links. Drop 300 to 500 words on there with a backlink using the anchor text as before…1 in 3 exact match anchor.

          The “Link Wheel” part is linking up the web 2s into a wheel formation. Each web 2 passes the link juice round, it ensures all get indexed too. Every web 2 links out to your money site and to the next web 2 site that you create. This is why you add all the content to the web 2 sites first before you add in the backlinks.

          First of all drop all the content onto your web 2 sites. Do not index them yet. Then go back to the first web 2 that you created, drop a backlink to your money site and to the second web 2 site that your created. Then index that web 2 in Google search. Rinse and repeat until the link wheel is complete.

          • Oops — I already created all the Web 2.0’s, dropped the content in, linked to my money page, and indexed them.

            I’ll connect them in a wheel like you said to and ping them or something I guess?

            Also, 1 in 3 exact match anchor???? I thought it was 1 in 5, and then even less than that with your updated anchor text formula you outlined in the comments above.

            I used:

            1/8 exact match anchor
            2/8 exact match long tail
            2/8 related keywords
            2/8 click here
            1/8 misspelled URL

            Should I go back and make it 1/3 exact match anchor?


            • No problem if you have already created and indexed your web 2s. Just link them up now, no need to ping them.

              To rank this page I used 1 in 3 exact match anchor like this:

              exact match anchor
              click here

              You can go back and change your anchors if you want to. If it was me I would do that.

          • I’ll go back and change these to use 1 in 3 exact anchor text. Thank you!!

            Should ALL the links on the expired Tumblrs and Weeblys also be 1 in 3 exact anchor text?

            I used 1 in 5 exact anchor I think.

            • Yes, Tumblr and Weebly were 1 in 3 too.

              Tumblr were:

              click here

              Weebly were:

              go here
              click here

              So you actually have 2 exact match anchors in every 5 backlinks created.

      • “You will need to log into them and link them all up into a link wheel. You could do 5 on tier 1 and 5 on tier 2. If you wanted 10 on tier 1 and 10 on tier 2 you would need to order the gig twice. Or you could use this to build your tier 1, and do the second tier yourself using the sites I have suggested in my link wheel on my free backlinks page.”

        So the gig has been delivered. He did exactly what you said: put my money website domain name as the subdomain. Probably my fault for not asking right away – I asked a day after I ordered the gig.

        Question: So what I do is make a linkwheel out of all 10 of the properties from the fiverr gig? Or make TWO linkwheels out of them?

        I’m confused when you say “Tier 1” and “Tier 2” – I thought ALL these were Tier 1?

        Thanks so much!!!

        • Yeah you don’t really want your money site name as the web 2 sub domain, it really needs to be your keyword.

          5 can be tier 1
          5 can be tier 2

          If you look at the link wheel image on my free backlinks post it will help you understand the tier system.

          Tier 1 is the inner wheel.
          Tier 2 is the outer wheel.

          Tier 1 links to your money site.
          Tier 2 links to tier 1. I also linked tier 2 to my money site, but you do not have to.

  • i tried to rank one of my page who already ranked ranked on 4th to 5th page for few main keyword ( Low Competition). I tried with 10 expired tumblr with 35 to 42 PA. All tumblr have 200 words article with images and videos. Since i need fast ranking tha’ts why i submit to 3 GWT accounts for indexing after one day of putting article on tumblr Blog. After indexing the links the page ranking losses and now ( after 8 days) the page ranked on 6- 10th page. I used main keyword and keyword variation to linking the money site. can you confirm that am i doing any mistakes.
    According to me the reason behind for ranking drop.
    1. main Keyword and variation used to linking.
    2. 3 tumble used for Indexing in GWT.
    3. Index after one day of putting article on tumble.
    have you any suggestion.

    • Hi Bhati. Thanks for dropping by. Your page is doing the Google dance, your ranking will drop a little at first when backlinks start to flow. This is normal, your rise will come. You should drop an exact match anchor every third backlink that you create. 8 days is way too early for this to affect your ranking long term, it is a slow process. You can’t rush this method, slow and steady always wins. I only did 10 backlinks to this page in the first 30 days. Also, you need to use different Tumblr sub domains for all backlinks. I would not recommend indexing 10 backlinks in one day. I go for 3, 5 max. Your ranking will improve if your content is good, just sit it out. Keep me informed, you are going to have to wait until the end of the month to see any real ranking rise. Then it’s time to start building the backlinks again, slow and steady, 3 a day max.

  • Hi Nick,

    Awesome resource! Well done. You mentioned that building 3 links per day is relatively safe. Is this 3 links per site or per page? I have 8 cornerstone articles in my website that I am building links for. My site is about 4 months old and have plenty of high quality content. So, should I do 3 links or 24 links?


    • Hi Deniz, good to have you here. It is three links per page. You can go ahead and do 24 links per day, 3 to each piece of content. I am doing this right now to an Amazon affiliate site, 3 links per day to 5 different pieces of content on the same site. Works a treat for me. Let me know how you get on, I love to know how you guys are ranking. Thanks for stopping by.

  • Thanks Nick! You are the best.

  • Hey Nick, Nice tut
    I am afraid about leaving footprints. I have premium VPN . Should I mask my ip?
    And what about same email id for all tumblr account and one email id for all weebly accounts? Does that leave any footprints ?? Should I move them to separate email ids?

    • If you want to be ultra safe you can mask your IP and register each Tumblr and Weebly blog under a different email address, one email per blog. I do not mask my IP and I register about 5 Weebly and 5 Tumblr per email, have not had any problems at all. I would not move them to separate email ids, I don’t and it’s working a treat for me.

      • That means it is okay to use web 2.0 properties with one email id only , right? Thanks for quick reply 😉
        This is by far quickest reply I ever got on any blog, lol

        • yes you can set up many web 2 sites under one email. I set up all the web 2.0 properties in the link wheel featured on my free backlinks page using just one email. If you have the time you can set up each site under a different email, I never do that.

  • Hi, I’ve never read such a great post about web 2.0 backlinks. I’ve a question. Should the expired web 2.0 be related to our niche or anyone with some backlinks and good PA helps???

    • Thanks Lewis. Expired web 2 does not need to be niche related. Like you say, lots of backlinks is key, the more the better. I don’t care too much about PA, it’s the backlinks that push you up the SERPs.

  • Hi There,

    I have purchased 5 Tumblr & Weebly from your link but when i tried to place the links in the ‘Description’ box, the links can’t open properly.

    It shows’ The URL you requested could not be found.’

    Any idea?

    Many thanks in advance!

    • Yep, your code is in correct. Take a look at the update in my post. Make sure that your quotation marks are facing the right way round. You can email me your Tumblr URL and I will email you the code that you need to use.

  • On Day 29… How can I find a Weebly blog that will accept my comment?

    So far the only Weebly with comments I can find is the official Weebly blog and I don’t think they’ll let me post my URL as a link without it being canned as a spam message.


    • It’s all covered on my free backlinks page.

      Do this Google search:

      your keyword + weebly + comment

      It needs to be a free weebly blog, they accept comments without moderation, they go live right away.

      Use your name or URL for the anchor text. If you can’t find any with your exact keyword do a broader search, you should be able to find something there.

  • Hey Nick,

    Thought to share something with you and your readers here. You added so much value here that I felt compelled to come back and share it.

    I have been using Link Centaur to get my web 2.0s indexed for the past 3 weeks. Yesterday, I wanted to check if they were all indexed. To my surprise, other than WordPress.com links nothing got indexed. Not even 1 tumblr out of 100+.

    Having seen this, I submitted about 50 of those yesterday to Google Submit. I just woke up now to see that all of them are indexed.

    So, 1) Link Centaur doesn’t work (or at least for Tumblr and within 3 weeks)
    2) Google Submit works like a charm.


    • Thanks for the feedback Deniz. I should really update my post, I don’t use Link Centaur any more. I always google “submit url to Google” and do it that way, they index everytime within a few minutes. You do need to have a few accounts, I only recommend submitting 5 to 10 links per account per day. I don’t bother using any Ping tools now, Google submit does the job, fast and easy. Thanks for dropping by. Let me know how you are ranking, you should shoot up the SERPs now that your backlinks are indexed.

  • Fingers crossed they will rank better soon. Funny enough, 4 out of 8 articles rank exactly at 21st position for their respective keywords and the remaining 4 dont rank at all (yet).

    The social signals ad below, is it your own? Or do you vouch for the vendor? I need for my YT videos. Have 13 of them.

    best strategy i ever seen about web 2.0 backlinks..
    but i have little question:-
    if i have 100 tumblr with high page authority, and i has been used only 10 to my website
    and the other 90 used them to push the frist 10 tumblr, this will give me same results or not ?

    • Thanks Mohamed 🙂 It will help using the 90 as tier 2 yes. The main point of using expired Tumblr and Weebly blogs is so that you do not need to build a tier 2, cuts down your work. It’s not going to do you any harm, I think your time will be best utilised finding expired web 2s with lots of backlinks pointing to them and using them as tier 1 only.

      • Mohamed
        1 year ago

        Thanks Nick for your reply,
        and i have asked you this question because i know Tumblr not giving unique ip.. so ?

        and about expired web 2s with lots of backlinks
        when i check Tumblr domain in checkpagerank.net
        i got like 2K backlinks.. but with moz.com got 25 backlinks only !!

        • Yeah Moz does not find all backlinks. You know that if moz states a site has 100 backlinks it is sure to have a lot more. I find SEO Spyglass to be the best at picking up most backlinks (it’s free). Set yourself a rule, minimum of 30 backlinks showing in Moz then you will register, anything less forget.

    I’m doing this for two different money URLs. On my second money URL project, I’m on the 3 week waiting period after day 7 and everything’s going well.


    My 4 expired Weebly blogs were deleted! They banned the entire account. I did NOT order these from your recommended seller. These were from a seller on fiverr.

    I’m trying to figure out what to do?

    I’ve ordered the 5 expired weeblys + 5 expired tumblrs through YOUR suggested provider, so I’m just waiting for them to come in.

    When they arrive, can I just repost the same content that was on my original weeblys that were deleted? My concern is that the deleted weeblys are still indexed in Google, even though they are deleted.

    So if the old deleted weeblys are still indexed, will it be duplicate content when I put that same content on the new weeblys?

    Should I wait for Google to deindex the deleted weeblys before using that same content again?

    Thank you!

    • Yes you can post the same content that you used before 🙂 Ah, if they are still indexed that will be a problem. Just run the content through this free article spinner, it will create a relatively new article that you can post, it will create an article that will index anyway. This will avoid the duplicate content issue.

  • one thing… as i am seeing tumblr instead of providing do follow link, its redirect the link. I have checked your url which you have ranked, and i am unable to find any backlinks from tumblr. It seem getting backlinks from tumblr is not possible now. i my self used some tumblr and get them indexed, but i dont get any juice link

    • As long as the Tumblr URL is indexed in Google search it will help you rank. The Tumblr re-direct is not a problem. You can by pass the re-direct by dropping a link in the Tumblr description area.

    Hi Nick,

    All right, i read your post one month ago and i took the action this week.

    Already built my first backlink to my page ( Yaay ! I’m a newbie and this is a big thing 😀 )

    Now for the second backlink, should i use the same tumblr and post a new post ( in this case i will get a redirect link ) or i use another tumblr account ?

    I’m a little bit confused though!

    From one Tumblr, how many backlinks can i get ? Just one backlink ( from the description ) or a lot of backlinks ( from the posts ) ?

    Thank’s mate , you are the best !!

    • Hi Marouane, you need to use a different sub domain Tumblr for each backlink that you create. For each Tumblr drop a backlink in the post. You do not have to do the backlink in the description area if you do not want to. Thanks for stopping by, if you have any problems just drop me an email….let me know how it goes.

  • Can you clarify the anchor text formula we should be using?

    In the article it says use:

    Click Here

    But in the comments you say to use:

    40% unique long anchor
    30% Brand
    20% URL – use the different variations eg http://www.rankersparadise.com and rankersparadise.com
    5% Webmasters name – use your name in blog comments – check my free backlinks page to get them right now
    4% Click here or go here or visit site etc
    1% Exact match keyword anchor

    And I think you told me to use 1/5 exact match anchor.

    Anyway, just wanted to see what you’re recommending now. I understand that you probably try new things at different times. I’m just scared to not use any misspellings and 1/5 exact match sounds like it’s going to get you sandboxed – just because I’ve always heard that you need to do like 1/10 exact match or something.

    Thanks a lot, sorry if this is rehashing for you, I just want to make sure I understand. Thank you!

    • You are correct, I do use a different anchor text formula all the time, it’s not a massive deal what you use as long as you do not over-do exact match. On most projects I go for:

      exact keyword
      click here

      Using an exact match once in every three links that you build is fine. Some so called gurus state that you need to be at 1% exact match, or below 2%, it is complete rubbish. There is no exact percentage that it needs to be, just do not build every single link with an exact match keyword anchor text.

      You can use the free version of ahrefs.com to take a look at what the top ranking sites for your selected keyword use for anchor text percentage.

      ahrefs.com states that this page is:

      exact match 30%
      go here 20%
      long tail 20%
      click here 10%
      full url 10%

      Take a look at what the top ranking sites are using in your niche. You will find a big fluctuation in the results, it does not really matter too much as long as you do not over do exact match.

    For next post on tumblr, what are the links in description area of theme of tumblr blog?

    • Not sure what you mean there. You do not have to do a link in the description area of your Tumblr blog theme if you do not want to. A backlink in the post only is enough to get your site ranking.

  • Great stuff,I need to try it out.But I have a question , while submiting the URLs to google console or linkcentuar do we have to submit the blog post url from which we have created backlinks from or the website’s domain.
    Thank you

    • Good question. Most of the time the homepage of your expired web 2 site will be indexed in Google search. Pop the Homepage URL eg “hghghnfn.tumblr.com” into Google search, if it is there then you do not need to index. If it is not there then index. Every time you add a new blog post go ahead and add the blog post URL to Google search console eg “hgjgjgjgj.tumblr.com/hghghg-jgjgjgj-ghghdksl”. Good to have you here, let me know how you get on when you give it a try.

      • If the homepage of web 2 is already indexed but the post url does not would this affect the overall ranking result?

        • The homepage is where the backlinks point to, so it is most important that the homepage will index. I like to get the homepage and the post URL indexed, if they do not I bin the Tumblr and use another one. However, the homepage is what passes on the ranking juice, so it will not affect the over ranking result if the post page does not index.

  • Hi Nick,

    while buying expired blog, Which is best Page authority or Trust floww


    • I only ever look at page authority. The most important thing is the number of backlinks that the expired web 2 blog has pointing to it.

    Nick, I am bit confused. I asked about links in description area of tumblr blogs.

    Suppose I added following code in description area for my money site 1

    Blog Posts

    Your Blog Post Title (keyword)

    your anchor text


    Now I want to post content and get backlink for another money site 2 from same tumblr blog.

    Now what are description area links? Should I Add link for money site 2? What about Read more link pointing to tumblr post? Have to remove that?

    • Yep, add another link in the description area to site 2. Also link to your new post too as you did before.

  • Hey Nick,

    Do you see your Tumblr backlinks at Search Console? It’s funny I only see my backlinks as subdomain.tumblr.com/rss.

    I am certain that I have over 100 tumblr links already indexed at Google but somehow I only have 2 Tumblr backlinks showing in Search Console and only from RSS feed. Is this normal?


    P.S. I am putting this in the comments instead of emailing to you so others would also see in case they have the same question.

    • Hi Deniz, I don’t see all Tumblr backlinks in search console. This does not matter, all that matters is that the tumblrs are indexed in Google search. If they are indexed they will have an affect on your ranking. Make sure you index them all.

  • hi nick i sent a mail 3days back throw contact us page can you please check it once

    • I sent you a reply 🙂 might be in your spam folder…

  • sorry to say this i check it didn’t get can you please send it again

  • Day 35, 8x Tumblr Posts. These are just tumblr posts, or do you also add a link in the tumblr theme like in the beginning?

    Just wanted to double check, thanks!

    • Yes they are just Tumblr posts, no link in the description area this time. Just drop a link in the post and you are done 🙂

      • Each Tumblr post is on a different expired Tumblr domain, right?

        You never post on the same Tumblr twice in this guide right?

        Cause I definitely posted 8x Tumblr Posts on Day 35 on the SAME expired Tumblrs that we used at the beginning. Looks like I need to back up and post this stuff on new Tumblrs?

        • That’s correct, each post is on a different Tumblr sub domain. I don’t backlink to the same money site from the same Tumblr more than once.

          Yeah, you need to go over what you have done, use different sub domains.

    Very useful Information. Really Appreciated, Looking forward to follow your subscription. It will boost my website for sure.

    • It works for me every time. Very powerful on the right keywords.

  • Hi Nick,

    For the Tumblr’s ‘description’ portion, do we use anchor text according to the anchor text used in the article?

    I.e. If we use “this site” as the anchor text in the article, do we also use “this site” in the description portion? Or do we stick to our real anchor text in the description portion?

    Thks in advance 🙂

    • Sure do, use the same anchor text as in the article.

    does this strategy up PA & DA or just ranking up in google ?

    • Both, it will push you up the SERPs and also improve DA and PA of your money site.

    • Just a mistake. Only do those links once over 🙂

      • Very cool! I thought I was losing my mind for a minute 😀

        Thanks so much Nick, will let you know what results I get. Working great so far! On page 2.

        • Nice one… keep going….. can’t wait to hear when you hit the top spot…

  • nice work . just keep it up and this is very help full for every one.

  • Which tools are best to find expired web 2.0 apart from free tool you mentioned above. Please also include any premium tools. Thanks

    • G Scraper and ScrapeBox. You can use the free version of G Scraper, just download and then buy some proxies to get up and running. You will need proxies for sure, they are cheap to buy.

      • Thanks. Whats your thought on domainhuntergatherer? Do you have used this.

        • I have heard of it, not used it though. It’s $17 a month for the expired web 2.0 gatherer, if you think it is worth the money then go for it. You could sell some on seoclerk to cover the monthly cost. Do a gig for a mixed bag of expired web 2.0 sites for $10, you only need to sell two to cover your costs. You really need to consider how much you are going to use it each month.

          Only you will know if it for you or not. This will help:

          How many sites are you trying to rank in Google search?
          How many expired web 2.0 sites do you actually need each month?

          If you only have 1 site then I wouldn’t bother. However if you plan on selling the web 2s then that’s a different matter. I have used G scraper and it works really well, it’s cheap too with no monthly ongoing costs…it’s a no brainer for me.

      • Nick, can you recommend some quality cheap proxies?

  • Thanks for sharing valuable information and I will try these tactics and will check how it will work.

  • Hi Nick,

    Thank you for the information Nick, I have followed what you have preached about quality web 2.0 properties to build backlinks.

    1. I got some high PA tumblr sites, have quality content posted (over 200 words),
    2. added html code on the “edit appearance” description section,
    3. used “Google’s url submit” to index the links

    The tumblr main site and content urls are indexed and is ranking for the anchor keywords. In fact, I already have two PA30 tumblrs ranking in page 3, but the main site is still yet to be seen. So I went to check the backlinks for the main site and I realise that the anchor text links are not indexed. I built these about two weeks ago.
    I understand that I need to keep doing it, which i will, but would you be able to give me an advice or two if I need to change a strategy?

    • Hi Alex, thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment. Keep building the backlinks, your main site will show in the SERPs soon enough. Did you buy an expired domain name for your money site, or is it a brand new domain that has not been used before? I think you are referring to your money site when you say “main site”?
      Some expired Tumblr blogs just do not index at all, you need to bin them, they have been spammed and nothing will index from them. You can re-blog the content that is on them easily onto another expired Tumblr. Keep going and make sure you get those backlinks indexed. If you need any advise just drop me an email, I am only too happy to help 🙂

      • Hi Nick, thanks for the feedback. I used scrape box to get the tumblr links, most are PA 30+. Yes I was referring to money site.

        I will try your reblogging suggestion and see how it will work out. Yes I will definitely drop you an email. Look out for my emails in the future. Thanks man!

        Just one question though, about reblogging, I was looking at the codes of the tumblr pages, and saids “noindex nofollow”, link juice will still be able to pass on after the steps you have taught?

        • No problem, I will keep an eye out for your email coming through. Yes the juice still flows, I am using this strategy at the moment on a few sites and it’s pushing them up the SERPs.

          • Thanks Nick for your confirmation. I have sent you an email. You are super responsive man! Much appreciative!

  • How do you register and manage so many Tumblrs and Weeblys without getting the accounts banned? You never mentioned using proxies for this so I’m wondering.

    • I don’t use proxies, I have had a few Tumblr accounts banned just recently. I don’t register too many in the same account so very little is lost if they go down. It’s not a big deal if they go, I keep all the content in a Text file and pop it onto another expired Tumblr or Weebly if they go down. I only lose a few here and there, more stay than go, which is the main thing. If this changes then I will have to start using proxies, I am good for the moment though.

      • Ok, thanks for clarifying.

        • No problem. It basically boils down to how much you are prepared to lose if they get banned.

  • Hi Nick,

    Thanks for great share. From the stats shown on different posts, you can easily rank a site with $30 to $50 budget. I know you are doing from some time now but my main question is how long such sites run before getting hit by Google.

    If they run more than 1 year then it can give us a great ROI. But i am waiting for your answer because no one answer better than you. Thanks

    • My sites have never been hit by Google. The web 2.0 backlinks strategy can be reversed if any problems arise in the future. You just remove the links, job done. If you build the links as I have suggested you will not have any problems ranking your sites with this method. I have sites over 4 years old and still pushing high rankings with web 2.0 backlinks.

    Heads up: I ordered 5 Tumblr and 5 Weebly expired blogs from the fiverr gig you recommended – and my 5 Weebly blogs were deleted! Obviously this is not your fault, I’m just letting it be known.

    Previously I told you I thought I ordered from another seller, not your recommended seller. But I was mistaken.

    Anyway, just a heads up. I’m going to use the seller you recommend on Seo Clerks for replacement Weeblys. Do you have any other recommended sellers for expired Weeblys?

    Thanks Nick!!!

  • Nice article Nick, thanks for sharing. I just have a quick questions in terms of web20 PBN and footprints.

    Isn’t adding web 20 links to Google’s search console (in order to get them indexed) a footprint. You have to be logged into your webmaster’s account after all. Or do you use different webmaster accounts for each link that you submit?


    • Adding your web 2.0 URL into Google console is a footprint yes, however I have not had any problems doing so. If you do not want to leave a footprint you can do some social bookmarks and Facebook and Twitter backlinks to your web 2.0 sites to get them indexed. Google crawls Facebook and Twitter on a regular basis so your links will be discovered rather quickly this way. I have quite a few Google accounts that I use, using Google console just speeds up the process. You could do a backlink to your web 2.0 blog from Twitter and then add the Twitter URL to Google console to avoid the footprint.

      • Thanks for the reply Nick. I was thinking of creating an IFTTT with Twitter as a trigger and maybe spinning some links through there, in hopes to get them indexed. Funny thing is, these are all decent web20s, with good content on them on websites like storify, livejournal, etc… and they are not indexing. I had their creation outsourced to a service provider, so maybe Google has caught up with that service provider’s IPs and is no longer indexing web20s created by them. Or maybe I am just being paranoid after 10 days of no indexing 🙂


        • Using IFTTT is a good option, i think you are being paranoid LOL. Maybe link them up into a link wheel and then use Google console to index just one of them, the rest will follow 🙂

  • Great Share!
    I have a question regarding the tumblr Redirect.
    In the Redirect you put in the Root Domain of your Money site and additionaly the blog post you are trying to get indexed. Could you explain why you Chose those two?

    I personaly would have expected to put the link to the page on the moneysite into the link instead of the root Domain and further I am wondering why to put the blog post URL into the description code as well.

    Would be great to get some Background Infos. Thank you!

    • I always link to my money site from the Tumblr blog post. I put the Tumblr blog post URL in description to make it look like a real blog posts reel, you do not have to do this if you do not want to. Just drop a link to your money site in the description area if you want to.

    How to index those social signals we bought from seller?
    How Google will come to know about social signals of my site?

    • You do not need to index those social signals. Google spider crawls social sites on a regular basis, your links will get found naturally.

  • Hey Nick,

    I sent you an email awhile back, hope you can help me out with that.


    • I sent you a reply when you first sent your email, please check your spam folder 🙂 If not I will have to re-send.

  • Hi Nick,

    I’ve almost completed the link wheel and gonna start Doc share now.
    Seems like I might need to get more web 2.0s.
    Do you write unique contents for the 15 other Tumblrs you bought?
    Or simply spin them?

    Thanks in advance!

    • To rank this post I did write unique content for the 15 Tumblr posts. You can spin some content if you are short on time, as long as the backlinks index that’s all that matters 🙂

    • Hi Mandy, you need to get some new expired Tumblr blogs yes. Use different sub domain Tumblr blogs when ranking pages on the same site. You can re-use the blogs to rank other sites. Great to have you here, let me know how you get on 🙂

    I wanna asking again to you Nick. Sorry I asking you many question nick.
    My website age is almost 9 month. But I create content 3 months ago. You said before to start SEO with this guide Web 2.0 Backlinks Ranking Strategy. Can I using web 2 backlink each article my website at same time like your schedule? Can I get penalty If I doing social signal and web 2 to each my article? I have 10 articles in my website. But My articles only have more 500 words. You suggest better article with 2000 words. I will increase my article to be 2000 words. How many LSI keyword using If I using 2000 words? Where I can get my LSI Keywords related with my keywords? Can I create content with Kontent Machine or Smartarticlegenerator to this web 2 backlink ranking strategy? In article you only said you create article by yourself to your web.2 backlink.

    Hi Nick,

    I started website near about 10 month ago and after publishing one article
    i left it now again after reading your post started this week. can you suggest when i can start back link. I want to earn I have also low budget due to my earning is zero. Please suggest me method so i can earn earning with in next 1-2 months.
    My site is about different nice (baby,home, garden sports). All keywords kc is <25.
    2. Also can you suggest quality article writer. Thanks in advance.

    • You can start building the backlinks right away. In your first month do 10 Tumblr blogs, use the free expired Tumblr Hunter software to get them. You don’t need to have any money at all to rank a web site optimised for low seo competition score keywords. In month 2 build the new web 2.0 link wheel shown on my free backlinks page. In month 3 do some more Tumblr backlinks 10 to 20 will do the job. I write all content myself, however you could try this seo clerks content writing service. I have not used it so I don’t know if it will be any good or not.

  • Muhammad Shahzad

    Thanks for quick response. For 10 Tumblr backlink use unique content or spin content .

    • To rank this post I wrote the content myself. I have ranked many sites using this method with spun content on the web 2.0 sites, as long as they index that’s all that matters.

  • Hey Nick,

    I’ve just came across your blog and I’m binge reading the posts. Amazing value you’re giving us man!!!…so really a BIG thank you!

    I have one Q: as I don’t have an established site, can I use a web 2:0 property as the ‘money site’ for the main URL/keyword I’m trying to rank and then build to it all the links as described?

    And if yes, which web 2:0s do you suggest to choose for the primary post to rank (meaning which ones do you think have a better potential to rank)?

    Thanks again for sharing all this with us man. Your site is awesome!

    • You can use a web 2.0 as your money site, however to rank a web 2.0 site number 1 in Google search you are going to require some very low seo competition keywords. It’s most definitely possible.

      I would use a free WordPress blog as my money site if I had to.

      Thanks for dropping by, let me know how you get on. Drop me an email if you need any help 🙂

  • Thanks, Nick!

    Yes, I’m planning to use them to rank several low competition KWs (but targeted and hopefully high converting).

    I’ll test this out. My idea is actually to have ranked a lot of such low compet Web 2s (building for eg. 10 -20 links to each of them), eg. a few hundreds.

    It’s a lot of work, but if each of them brings $1-2/month, it’s a nice additional revenue stream.


    • No problem. Hope it goes well for you. Let me know how it goes 🙂

    I have to do with you tell but tumbler not given direct backlink for curl. I see Tumblr do backlink to some redirect URL. Do you have any options for fix this?

    • Don’t worry about the Tumblr re-direct, it still passes ranking juice and will push your sites up the SERPs. You can pop a link in the description area of the Tumblr, which will not give a re-direct.

      • channa
        1 year ago


        Please review this and let is this correct?

        • Remove the links from your description area, they do not work and are not necessary. I don’t bother with the links in the description area anymore, a link in the post is enough, the re-direct is not a problem, the ranking juice still flows.

          You need more content on each post. This is how I set up my Tumblr posts.

          1. Few lines of text under the main TITLE with backlink to money site included.

          2. Then I have another heading with my keyword in there.

          3. Another few lines of text.

          4. Drop a related image into the post.

          5. Drop 300 to 400 words after the image.

          6. Then pop a related youtube video into the post, does not have to be one of yours…any will do.

          7. Then I do another heading with the keyword in there.

          8. Then finish off with a few sentences.

          Remember to have your keyword at the top, middle and bottom of your content.

    I see your screenshot web.2 backlink on Days 2, you said : do internal backlink, what its means? 1 Tumblr backlink do internal linking too to other tumblr backlink, Nick? I am confused. Each post in tumblr baclink add picture and video too or not? Title in tumblr backlink and PBN backlink must using my keyword or not? I try purchase PBN backlink, but I see title in PBN with my keyword not exist. I am confused. Please give me direction Nick. Thank you for your reply

    • Internal backlinks are links from other pages on your money site (related content) to the page on the same money site that you are trying to rank no. 1 in Google search. For example, if I was trying to rank this particular page, I would take a look around the rest of the posts on Rankers Paradise and drop a link in the content to this page with exact match anchor text. The internal links are nothing to do with the Tumblr or Weebly blogs.

      I always add a related youtube video and an image in all my Tumblr and Weebly posts. Always make sure that your Weebly and Tumblr TITLE’s have your keyword in them.

      Which PBN backlink package did you buy?

  • Hey Nick, what an awesome tutorial, congratulations. This is something that I’ve been looking for this whole time.

    I have a question for you.

    I have a keyword with competition of 34-36 and I want to rank #1 using web 2.0. This is my 6th time reading this article and I can tell you that I’ve learned everything. However, my question is this:
    When I ran for a certain keyword, let’s say that keyword is “blue bag”, I want all my tumblr posts and weebly posts to be with “blue bag” title and “blue bag” keyword or I can write about bags in general and I can add my keyword as a brand anchor text?

    Thank you for the answer in advance. I have 2-3 more questions but I won’t spam right away.

    • Yes you need to have your keyword in the Tumblr and Weebly TITLE and make sure you pop the keyword in at least one heading in the post and have your keyword mentioned at the top, middle and bottom of your content. Forget the brand anchor if your keyword is exact match domain. Just use this anchor text:

      blue bag
      click here

      Fire away with your questions. I am happy to help 🙂

      • But would’t that be sort of a spam? I mean, if I try to rank keyword with difficulty of 40 for example, I’ll need like 100 Web 2.0 properties. And 100 titles with the same keyword, would’t that be considered as a spam?
        Maybe I can make some changes, for example, if I go for ‘leg workout’, I’ll name the title, ‘Simple leg workout’; ‘How to build bigger quads’? Maybe those variations or should I stick to the ‘leg workout’?

        Thank you for your kindness!

        • It’s not spam…you are promoting your site…I ranked this page posting unique content on each Tumblr and Weebly adding something of value in each piece of content…each and every title was different…they all had my keyword in there. I don’t ever try and rank keywords with seo competition score of 40…why make it hard for yourself? Keyword research is the most important part of any online affiliate project, finding low seo competition keywords is the difference between success and failure. Always add your keyword in the Title like you say but vary it, pop some other words in there too so every title is different yet all have your keyword in there. E.G if you keyword is “leg workout” 5 titles you could use would be:

          • I totally agree about the low competition keyword thing.
            But hear my thoughts. I’m in a fitness niche, and the product I want to rank has like 1900 searches a month. It’s a great product. However, If I rank with the same name of the product, it has 1900 searches, but when I put in the broad keyword of the program is like 50k+. So you suggest to build Web 2.0 for the whole name of the product (1900 searcher)?
            Would that be worth the work I’ll put into?

            Thank you very much for your replies..!

            • This all depends on the sites that are ranking number 1 for each keyword. You can email me the keywords and I will take a look for you. To answer this I need to take a look at the SERPs.

      • I’ve sent you an email. Thank you!

        • Okay. I have sent you reply.

          • I still got nothing.. Maybe it wasn’t sent.

          • Thank you very much!

            One more question though.

            When I send the social signals, I send them over to the URL I try to rank or to the Web 2.0 properties?

            • Send the social signals to the page you are trying to rank, not the web 2.0 sites.

          • Okay, thank you!

          • Oww sorry Nick, I forgot… I need one more answer..

            When I buy expired weebly, wordpress or tumblr whatever, if the names are not in my niche it’s not important right? Or should I search for a niche-suitable expired Web 2.0?

            This one is last, thank you very much.

            • No problem, ask as many questions as you need to. Expired web 2.0 sites do not need to have your keyword in the sub domain URL. The web 2.0 sites do not need to be niche specific, all you are interested in is the backlinks that point to the expired web 2. The backlinks pass on the ranking juice and push your sites up the SERPs.

          • Thank you very much! I’ve found 3 tumblrs with around 100 do-follow backlinks, but when I fire them in the backlink tool it says that they are removed. So I guess this backlinks are not good and not to activate the Web 2.0?

            • Yes they are no good if the backlinks have been removed, the PA will drop quick and there is no ranking juice to flow and push your money site up in the SERPs. Try to find expired Tumblrs with live backlinks.
