Web 2.0 Link Wheel Tutorial

Web 2 0 Link Wheel TutorialI am going to show you how to build a web 2.0 link wheel manually and with the use of software too.

This ranking strategy got me a Google page 1 ranking on day 1.

In around 30 days the strategy got me a Google.com and Google.co.uk rank 1 for my selected keyword.

I am going to show you how I did it for free.

You can do it yourself for free or……..

You can get the strategy done for you right here in the Rankers Paradise SEO store.

I have logged the results below, this is a proven strategy you can use yourself.

You can even check my results for yourself to know for certain that it will work for you too.

Most importantly I am going to show you the rank effects of a powerful link wheel like this.

You can follow the tutorial to build your very own link wheel.

So what is a link wheel?

It’s simply linking up your sites one by one into a wheel formation so that they are not orphaned pages.

The seo link wheel can be a very powerful rank strategy when done the right way.

I am going to point the backlinks to this post to see the rank effects.

I will do a small 5 site web 2.0 link wheel on tier 1.

On tier 2 I will point 10 high PA Tumblrs to each of the 5 web 2.0 posts.

I am not going to write any of the content myself for any of the sites.

I am going to use SEO Content Machine to generate some unique content.

Let’s get right into it;

Web 2.0 Link Wheel Tutorial

First of all we need to set up 5 web 2.0 sites.

To do that we are going to require a fresh email.

You can set up a free email account at the following sites:

  1. Mail.com
  2. gmx.co.uk
  3. Yandex.com

Go ahead and get yourself a free email, you only require one. We can use the one email address to set up all five web 2.0 sites.

Now you have your email set up you need to register five Web 2.0 sites for use in the link wheel.

The five Web 2.0 sites I am going to use on tier 1 are;

  1. Tumblr.com
  2. Weebly.com
  3. WordPress.com
  4. Kinja.com
  5. Blogger.com

Go to each Web 2.0 site and set up an account. If you want a list of other web 2.0 sites that you can use go to my free backlinks post.

Make sure you get your keyword into the Web 2.0 sub domain.

I am looking to rank this page for the keyword “Web 2.0 Link Wheel” so I will make sure it sits in the blog sub domain URL.

For example, if you have the keyword “best epilator” you would want your Web 2.0 URL to look like this:


If the exact match keyword blog URL is taken add another word to the end, so you will have something like this:

bestepilatorsite.tumblr.com or even bestepilatorblog.tumblr.com

I think you know what I mean.

Now that you have your Web 2.0 blogs set up you need to get some content to post onto them.

I am going to use SEO Content Machine to generate the content for me.

If you do not have SEO Content Machine you have a few other options available.

You can either write the content yourself by hand, which is by far the best method, but the most time consuming.

You can go ahead and use the free blog content generators outlined in one of my previous posts.

Or you can buy some content for use on your blogs. You can use this service here to get the job done.

Web 2 Link Wheel Strategy Done For You

Generate Unique Content

I am going to show you how to generate unique content using SEO Content Machine.

I want these sites up and live as fast as possible, so I am going to generate the content.

Go ahead and fire up your copy of the SEO Content Machine software.

Generate Articles for your web 2.0 sites

Click on the “Generate Articles” icon.

Go ahead and set up your content settings

Add your keyword into the “Keywords” box.

Make sure you select the article quality to be “Unique”, this is very important.

We want the content to be as long as possible. So I set the Paragraph count from 25 to 50 and have paragraph Min Words set to 50.

Use the in built spinner “Soft Spin”, which is very good. Then set your article count to 5.

Make sure you select “No Spintax” and choose a folder on your pc to save your content to.

Now you can hit the “Run Task” button. Make sure the “Run Immediately” radio box is checked.

When the content is complete we will optimise it for posting onto our web 2.0 sites. I will show you exactly how to do this right now.

How To Optimise Your Web 2.0 Content

We will optimise the content as we drop it onto our web 2.0 sites.

Before you drop the content onto the web 2.0 sites you need some images. You need around 10 images, make sure you get your keyword into the file name of the image.

The anchor text I will use for the Tier 1 backlinks will be;

  • Brand
  • Full Open URL
  • Brand
  • Long Tail Exact

You can check out my perfect anchor text ratio post to understand why I chose these anchors.

Optimise the content on your Web 2.0 sites like this

Right, let’s drop the content onto the web 2.0 sites, to get the most benefit from it you need to do the following things.

  • Add your keyword at the beginning of the title
  • Put your keyword at the top, in the middle and at the end of the content. (if it’s a long piece of content drop the keyword in there a few more times). Make sure one of the keywords is in bold type.
  • Put the keyword in a heading on the page.
  • Add the images to your post. Make sure the images have the keyword in the file name, also add the keyword to the image ALT TAG if it is possible.
  • Add the backlink to your money site above the fold. I always put the backlinks in the first paragraph. If you are not using exact match anchors make sure your chosen keyword is close to your anchor, this is very important.
  • Add another backlink to an authority site. Google your keyword, go to page 4 or 5 and find a site that has high domain authority and drop a backlink to it, do not use exact match anchors, use generic anchors for these.
  • Go to youtube and pop your keyword in the search box. Use a different video on each web 2.0. Use the top 5, whichever ones you choose.

That’s it, go ahead and drop the content on all 5 web 2.0 sites. Make sure you optimise each site as suggested above.

Now your web 2.0 sites will have fully otpomised content on them with a backlink to your money site.

Now it is time to link the 5 web 2.0 sites together into what is know as a link wheel.

Create The Web 2.0 Link Wheel

Now we need to go ahead and develop the web 2.0 link wheel. It is really very easy to do, this is how you do it;

How to set up your web 2.0 link wheel

This is how you set up your link wheel;

  • Tumblr links to Weebly
  • Weebly links to WordPress
  • WordPress links to Kinja
  • Kinja links to Blogger
  • Blogger links to Tumblr

Go ahead and link up your web 2.0 blogs. Use all long tail exact anchors, this means you must have your exact keyword in the anchor.

Here is an example of a long tail exact anchor:

If my keyword is “best fishing knife” then a long tail exact anchor for this would be “see this best fishing knife guide here”.

Get thise 5 web 2s linked up now. This ensures your money site gets backlinks and your web 2.0 sites gets backlinks. This ensures your web 2s are not orphaned pages, which is very important.

Also, make sure you link to the web 2.0 post page, not the web 2.0 home page.

Make sure you index those tier 1 backlinks too, you can use Google Console for this. Do not worry if the links do not remain in the index, the tier 2 backlinks will help sort that little problem out.

Now I have my tier 1 web 2.0 backlinks set up, it is time to pump out some tier 2 backlinks.

Tier 2 Backlinks

On tier 2 I am going to build 10 high PA Tumblr backlinks to each tier 1 web 2.0 site.

I am going to use FCS Networker to get my tier 2 backlinks, of course you can do this manually.

Or you can use an seo clerks service for it. The service here offers 50 high PA Tumblr backlinks, and you can split the URLs, which means you can give the seller your 5 tier 1 URLs and get 10 backlinks to each of them.

This is how you can get Tumblr backlinks fast using FCS Networker;

Go ahead and log into your FCS Networker account.

If you are completely new to FCS Networker you will need to add your Tumblr blogs into the system. I have covered this in my FCS Networker guide, so I won’t go over that again here.

I assume that you have your Tumblr blogs loaded into FCS Networker and you are ready to roll out the backlinks.

I am going to use FCS Networker to generate the content for the web 2.0 tier 2 backlinks, it actually produces really good content.

Set up your web 2.0 link sets in FCS Networker

Select “Link Sets” and click on the “Add Link Set” tab.

This is how we are going to set up the anchors used on the backlinks to our tier 1 web 2.0 sites.

We are going to set up 5 link sets.

All tier 2 backlinks will point to the tier 1 post page, not the home page.

All 10 anchors are going to be long tail exact match anchors. You will need to enter 10 different long tail anchors into the system.

web 2.0 tier 2 anchor text to use

You are going to create 5 link sets, one for each web 2.0 site on tier 1.

Enter your link set name.

Enter the URL of the web 2.0 site on tier 1.

Then drop 10 long tail exact match anchors in the “Main Anchors” text box.

Next you need to scroll down and hit the “Add Links” button.

Create your web 2.0 blog project

Click on “Create Projects” (circled red) and give your project a name.

Make sure that “Submission Style” is set to “Post Amount Per Project” and that you have the “Evenly” radio tab selected for “Submit Posts Across Accounts”.

Select Your Web 2 Link Sets

Scroll down the page and select the “Linking” tab.

Click on the “Choose Links Sets” button and select one of your link sets that you set up earlier. Leave everything else set on default.

You can add authority link into the mix if you want to, I am not going to do this. I want all the rank juice to flow to the web 2.0 sites.

Then click on the “Images/Videos” tab.

Add Image and Videos to your web 2.0 sites

Simply drop your keyword into the images section. The software will add web 2.0 related images into the tier 2 blog posts for me.

Ignore the rest of the tabs, we do not need to use them. Now scroll back to the top of the project page.

select web 2 blogs for tier 2

To select the Tumblr accounts that you want to use on tier 2, first select the “Accounts” tab and then click the “Add Accounts” button.

You will then be presented with a list of all the web 2.0 accounts you have in the software, check the radio button of the the 10 Tumblrs that you wish to use.

auto generate content for your web 2.0 blogs

Now click on the “Articles/Content” tab and click the “Auto-Gen Content” radio tab.

Pop your main keyword into the “keyword” text box and select a category for your content.

Make sure that you select the content quality to “Readable” and set how many paragraphs you wish to have.

Then check the “Submit To All Accounts Once” tab.

Scroll down and hit the “Save Project” button.

FCS Networker will now drop 10 Tumblr backlinks to your tier 1 site.

Repeat this process for the other tier 1 web 2.0 sites within the link wheel.

Make sure all the sites get 10 high PA Tumblr backlinks, that will be more than enough to get things moving, especially for easy to rank keyword.

That’s it, you now have a super powerful link wheel on tier 1 powered up with some dirty tier 2 rank juice. You can drop this link wheel into month 2 of my powerful web 2.0 backlinks strategy.

This is a great way to rank any website, or get a page moving up the SERPs again.

You can create the web 2.0 link wheel with FCS Networker software, I am going to show you how to do that right now.

SEO Link Wheel Software

If you have FCS Networker you can use it to build the tier 1 web 2.0 link wheel for you on complete auto pilot.

I will go through this step by step for you right now, you can also take a look at this video to get the job done also.

First of all you will need to load your web 2.0 accounts into the software.

FCS Networker even has a built in account creator option, so you don’t even have to do that manually these days.

You can have the software set up the web 2.0 accounts for you.

For this tutorial I am going to assume you have the web 2.0 accounts set and ready to roll, so lets get them loaded into the software and ready to post to onto.

Import Accounts For Link Wheel

First lets import your web 2.0 accounts into the software. Click on “Accounts” and then “Blog Accounts” and then select “Import Bulk Accounts”.

Add Web 2 Accounts

Now add your 5 web 2.0 accounts into the software that you are going to use in the link wheel.

You need to enter them in this format:


Pop them into a category and hit the “Add Accounts” button.

Add Link Wheel Link Sets

Before you start your link wheel project you are going to need to set up a link set for your money site. Select the “Link Sets” option and then hit the “Add Link Set” button.

Add Your Money Site Anchors

Go ahead and add your money site URL and main anchors. Drop the 5 anchors in there that you want to be used on each of the 5 web 2s in the link wheel.

Then scroll down and hit the “Add Links” button. Now you are ready to create the link wheel with the software.

Create Link Wheel Project

Click on “Create Projects” then “Create Blog Projects” and then give it a name.

Now scroll down to the link wheel section.

Select Link Wheel Option

Select the “Link Wheel” radio tab.

When you click the “Target Links” tab you can select the link set that you set up earlier, this will be the link to your money site.

Then you need to select the “Link Wheel Anchors” button, this is the 5 anchors you are going to use that link one web 2.0 blog to the other.

You can also select the “Authority Links” tab to get some links into your articles from authority sites within your niche.

Make sure you set the “Target Links Per Article” from 1 to 1.

Add Your Web 2 Accounts For Link Wheel

Select the “Accounts” tab and then click the “Add Accounts” button. Now select the 2 web 2.0 accounts that you are using in the link wheel.

Add Content For The Link Wheel

Now select the “Articles” tab and go ahead and get your content loaded into the software. You can Auto-Gen the content or upload your own articles, the choice is yours.

Now scroll down to add images and videos to your post.

Add Images and Videos Into The Link Wheel

Select the Images/Videos tab and select the options to add images and videos into your posts. You can use your own images and videos, or have the software get them for you.

Then hit the “Save Project” put and let the software build the web 2.0 link wheel for you on complete auto pilot.

I will log the rank results here for you all to see the effects of the link wheel. If I need to power it up I will add more tier 2 backlinks further down the line.

As it stands this will be enough to get me ranking high for such a easy keyword.

Link Wheel Service

  • do I need to worry if big g detect my 2.0 sites using the same email?

  • Hi. Great post, I have been wondering how to set this up…I do think Im overthinking a few things though.
    When you have chosen the 5 anchors to use for the tier 1, would that be all 5 anchors in each post or one anchor per post?

    Full Open URL
    Long Tail Exact

    • It’s one anchor per post.

        Hi Nick,

        fantastic post you make it sound so easy. I am trying to follow your post to the letter and may be over thinking this. But can you clarify…with the link wheel are we building out a super web 2.0 for each of the sites or is it simply 1 page per web 2.0?

        • It’s simply 1 page per web 2.0, you can add more content to them in the future, however a one page site is good enough to get things moving.

    Hi Nick,

    another question. I have found a bunch of expired Tumblr, which you taught us how to power up each of the web 2.0 in the link wheel. For example:

    DA 99
    PA 32
    Backlinks 995
    Referring domains 427
    Trust Flow (TF) 0
    Citation Flow (CF) 0

    Would you consider this for your tier 1 or 2, given that TF & CF are both 0? Is TF & CF all that important and relevant, or would you consider the most important being the number of backlinks & referring domains. Please explain.

    • Those are great for Tier 1, TF and CF will improve as you put content on the blogs and build niche related backlinks to them anyway. The backlinks they have in place already will certainly help boost your sites.

  • hello , thx for this great articles , i have 1 question when i make the web2.0 do i need vpn to hide my footprint from google or no

  • Also can you tell me what is the straegy i used to index backlink , means
    week 1 : index trie 1 ( The 10 articles)

    week 2 : index trie 2 ( The 50 tumblr link)

    • The 50 Tumblr backlinks on tier 2 should index your Tier 1 sites. Leave it 2 weeks or so. If they do not index that way then drop a link to all 5 web 2 sites from Google Plus, Facebook and Twitter…..then wait for them to index naturally….Google bot crawls social sites often and it will ensure your sites are found and indexed. If that does not work then you can force index your sites with Google console.

    hello . thx for this great articles . thx alot

    so my question can i use the some tumblr (50) the ather page ofcourse with differnt web 2.0 for trie 1 plz help me

    • If you are using the same this strategy on the same page then you should use different web 2 platforms on tier 1, if it is a different page but on the same site you can use the same web 2s for tier 1. Yes you can use the same 50 Tumblr on Tier 2, they are just there to help index tier 1.

        i can said anather word . you are great men . this is my favorite site . i like you and your site and i ‘m waiting your new post i will share this site and this post with all my friend i’m arabic and you know there are million arab can speak english i will tell them about this great site . keep helping us . thx

        • No problem Ahmed, glad I can help. My new post has been published today, drop a comment and let me know what you think. It’s all about ranking tiered link building and one strategy to rank multiple urls and keywords on the same site, you can see it here.

  • ahmed cherif
    8 months ago

    just final question and i’m sorry . i ask my friend and he tell me that if i create new web 2.0 like worpress. blogger…. and in the some day i create backlink from them google will be penalize my sites . the right way is to wait 30 days when you build new web 2.0 and in that month put some article and index them after that create backlink . plz help to don’t know what i do

    • Google will not penilize your site if you go ahead and create 100 new web 2 sites/backlinks in one day, this is because Google does not know they exist on day one. Google bot only knows they exist when they are indexed. You can build 2000 new web 2.0 properties on day one and index them slowly over 2, 3, 4 or 5 months. Your site will not get penalised from web 2.0 backlinks unless you index a whole load in one day using exact match anchors. Build your sites and add your content and backlink right away, add tier 2 and let the tier 2 links index your tier 1 backlinks naturally. The number of tier 1 backlinks you build all depends on your keyword. Don’t really listen too much about what others are telling you (even me), get out there and get testing. I show you the results of the strategies here, nothing is hidden. All you have to do is copy what I have done and you will have success if you stick to the formula and use it on the right keywords. If you need any help just drop me an email or send me a message here 🙂

  • Hi Nick,

    In relation to forcing Big “G” to index our backlinks, do we simply use the 1 account for the 50 Tum Accs? Would this leave a footprint? Or would recommend say 10 “G” accounts?

    • Yes use different Gooogle accounts to index your links. It does leave a very big footprint if you only use one account. I have around 12 accounts I think, 10 will be enough for you.

  • Hi Nick,

    Just came across your site. Love the explanation. However, I am new to all this. You mention that we point 10 backlinks from 10 Tumblr accounts to each web 2.0 property. Do we point the 10 backlinks at the post page or at the homepage of web 2.0 property? Is there any difference?

    • Doesn’t really matter, the rank juice will pass to your tier 1 links and then onto your money site either way. Of course the link to your tier 1 site needs to be on the homepage, or a link to the article needs to be on the homepage.

  • NIck, thank you very much for all of this content.

    I have some questions about it though. Can you help me please?

    1. how many e-mail accounts do I need to have in order to get the 50 Tumblr Web 2s?
    2. What about the structure of the tier 2 posts? Do I only add one post per Tumblr?
    3. Do I need to talk about my money site on the Tumblr ”edit theme”

    Thank you one more time and I am a big fan of yours

    • Not a problem, and yes I can help.

      1. Go for 5 emails, put 10 Tumblrs under each account. Make sure you add a header image and a profile image to each account to ensure they do not get banned right away.

      2. Yes, just one post per Tumblr. You can use the Tumblr blogs again to rank other pages further down the line. So they are worth the time setting up correctly.

      3. You do not need to add a backlink in the description of the Tumblr or even mention your money site.

  • Hey Nick, how are you?

    I have done all this strategy and I was wondering: what if I won’t be able to get on the 1st page with this strategy? What else can I do? Do I have to keep adding Expired Tumblr Backlinks on the tier 1?


    • Hi Carlito, If you don’t get top rank with this strategy (you will if you have selected the right keyword) you can get a rank boost by powering up your tier 1 blogs with GSA. GSA blog comment backlinks are good for tier 2 here, get links from sites that are already indexed this way, so you will rank up fast. If you do not have GSA I recommend you get it, if you can’t afford right now we have a service in our store to cover you right here. You can also go ahead and get quality blog comment backlinks to your money site, make sure they are niche related. Just search for blogs in your niche and drop a comment and backlink, we also have a service in our store for this if you do not have the time, which is here.

  • Hey, Nick! How are you?

    I am about to buy FCS Networker as you recommended. It seems to be worthwhile.

    Before I indeed purchase it, I would like to know what are the max posts which can I do per Tumblr linking for the same money site?

    Because I have a money site where I am affiliate and I would like to make a lot of posts about different products and keywords from the same niche.

    Thank you very much, Nick!

    PS: if you also have a discount code to buy this product, it would be awesome!

  • And how can I avoid being banned with FCS Networker?

  • Hi Nick,

    Amazing Post! Just trying to implement some of the concepts you taught and have the following questions:

    1. Tier 1 – if the post page is also on the home page, do we link tier 2 (Tumblr) to the home page of tier 1, or to the post page of tier 1? is there any difference?

    2. Tier 2 content – does content on tier 2 (tumblr) have to be optimized to the same detail as tier 1? eg. title tag, headings.subheadings etc need to have the main keyword? does it have to be relevant content?

    3. link from tumblr (tier 2) to Tier 1 (web 2.0 entites) – it is showing the full open url and not the anchor text for mine. Has anything changed on Tumblr? have you noticed this?

    • Hi Peter,

      1. This doesn’t really matter, the link back to your money site is on the homepage and the post page so the link juice flows no matter what. I usually do the links to the post page, it doesn’t make a difference.

      2. The Tier 2 content does not have to be optimized to the same level as your Tier posts, you do not need the keyword in the TITLE, SUB TITLES etc, they are only really done to index the tier 1 links and to pass on some rank juice. Yes the content does need to be relevant in some way.

      3. No it is still working as normal, you can get backlinks from Tumblr using any anchor text you want to use.

  • hey nick can we use 2 wordpress websites to this link wheel?

    • It’s better to use different web 2 platforms, you need backlinks from many different IPs. Backlinks from the same IP only count as 1 no matter how many you have from that IP.

  • Thanks for the reply also while creating tumbler links should i provide the link of my web 2.0 site or money site in the tumblr description to pass the link juice

    • Put the link to your web 2.0 in the description for the Tier 2 Tumblr links.

  • and which web 2.0 index faster other than wordpress, tumblr, strikingly, weebly

    • Some other good web 2 platforms to use that index fast include:


  • hey nick should i provide tumbr links to my web 2.0 site or post?

    • You do the Tumblrs to your Web 2.0 post page 🙂 It doesn’t really matter, the juice will flow to your money site either way. I always do the Tumblrs to the post page.
