Web 2 0 Link Wheel Tutorial

Comments 219

Hi Nick, will this link wheel technique still work in 2020. I still have doubts.

Hi syarif, yes the link wheel still works in 2020. We still use it for clients, just make sure you get the links indexed and you will rank up.

Hey Nick great site, What software would you recommend now as FCS Networker has closed down?

For Tumblr posting only I recommend Tumbling Jazz and for any other web 2.0 posting do for Rank Wyz, Money Robot or Magic Submitter. If you are doing a 5 site link wheel then I recommend you do the tier 1 brand new sites manually and use Tumbling Jazz for the tier 2 high PA/DA Tumblr backlinks.

Hi Nick,

when linking from Tier 2 to Tier1, can we place the link in the description section of the Tum acc? Or would you suggest we link out from a post page instead, and implement that additional step you mentioned else on this website to help change the link from a nofollow to a do follow?

Yes, you can place the link in the Tumblr description area, however, it’s not required. Just a link from the post page is enough, nofollow and dofollow links help, you need a good mix. It’s not necessary to remove the Tumblr redirect, the juice will pass anyway. If you want to remove the redirect you can follow this to do so: https://www.rankersparadise.com/remove-tumblr-url-redirect/

Hi Nick,

you write some really good posts.

Each of the 5 web 2.0 are already receiving 10 exp tumblr backlinks (each). Based on your experience does linking all 5 web 2.0 entities into a wheel make that much of a difference, given they are no longer orphaned pages?

Putting the sites into a link wheel makes a huge difference, this not only helps them index faster in Google it also ensures the Tier 2 juice passes right across all the domains, this means that if one of the web 2 sites does not index all the juice still flows to your website and none of the Tier 2 links are wasted.

Also, the longtail keywords that im ranking for all contain a ‘city’ at the end, like piano lessons in london. Im only using youtube videos to rank, so will your strategy work for youtube videos using location keywords alone, or will i have to do more to get ranked?

Yes it works for local search terms too, make sure you have the keywords in the TITLE of each post and drop the location keyword quite a lot within the content “London” will need to be mentioned a lot within the text. It’s also good to drop a Google MAP embed of the location into the content too. make sure you embed the video into the web 2 post and also link to it using exact match anchors.

Great, sorry for so many questions. I have managed to scrape many expired tumblrs for tier 2 using scrpaebox/vanity cheker and my own bot to check registration. My question is shall i point some of the 60+ tumblrs direct to my videos that are niche related but not exact keyword matches. Or do it keep them on tier 2? I read that some people point more than 1 high PA tumblr to videos. I also scraped high PA blogger blogs that are niche related but not exactly keywords mathes. What shall i point them to ?

No problem ask as many questions as you need to. When it’s to a video you should use a mix of exact match anchors and the full YouTube video URL as anchors (use this mostly – 60% of the time). You can use them all on Tier 1, it looks natural as Tumblr is a social platform and will look like people are seeing the video and sharing it. Most definitely use the Blogger sites on Tier 1, do a mix of video embeds and anchor text backlinks.

Ok great, so how would i maintain a good bounce rate for tier 1 and tier 2 articles? Just good quality content?

Yes and filter traffic with good call to action so the traffic either leaves the site to another website or goes to another page on the site.

Great thanks mate. Do you use expired high DA domains on these web 2.0’s or just the default subdomains?

Just use new default domains, get your keyword into the sub domain URL. If you do Tier 2 from expired Tumblrs that will boost the PA.

Hi Nick, I blasted my tier 2 tumblr blogs with blog comments from scrapebox and gsa. After a few days alot my tier 2 blogs where indexed, but then after another 4-5 days they appear to be deindexed ? Can you explain why this is?

Yes they jump in and out of the index, when they index if bounce rate is high they will drop out and that is purely down to your content.

Hi Nick, hope your well. Which T1 sites are you currently posting to?

For a 5 site link wheel I usually go with:

1. wordpress.com
2. weebly.com
3. webnode.com
4. strikingly.com
5. site123.com

Great, and for a 15 link wheel?

Use any of the 20 web 2.0 sites on this list: https://www.rankersparadise.com/web-2-0-blog-list/

Hello Nick, I just discovered this blog. Very insightful and comprehensive. Can you please explain, what is meant by “Full Open Url” for the anchor text? Do you mean http://www.moneysite.com. If this is the case, would it show up in the search engine just right underneath our own website, over time?

Yes that is the full open URL. I have described all anchor text variations here: https://www.rankersparadise.com/perfect-anchor-text-ratio/ it’s possible that a website with a full open URL anchor may show in the search results pages if someone searches for your brand yes.

I have some autoapprove blog comment lists i scraped on scrapbox and i have the blog comment list from https://autoapprovemarketplace.com (loopline). Are these kind of cheap comments ok to fire at the youtube url ???

Yes most definitely, YouTube is a authority site these links will not harm ranking only improve it. Also, exact match anchors are good but still mix them up, mostly use exact match.

Actually 4 of the 16 tier 1 sites have no been indexed yet, so im not sure if that makes a difference?

If you have 12 indexed then it will move up in ranks soon, 3 weeks max. You can hit the YouTube URL with blog comment links too, that will get it moving.

Great, thanks for that. Right so i have tried your process from start to finish. I have 16 web 2.0s (all with video embeds) pointing to my video. I have set up the web 2.0 like in this article, but with Kontent Machine using high quality spins from The Best Spinner API. I have pointed approx 120 tumblr accounts at them, so approx 8 tumblrs pointing at each web 2.0. I then sprayed thousands of blog comments using scrapebox to the tier 2. Everything worked well, as the blog comments indexed the tumblrs which indexed the web 2.0s. It all got indexed today. My question is how long before i see my video ranking increase? its a long tail local keyword and its on page 4. Its hasnt moved yet, so how long usually?

On Google you need to treat it the same as a website, you will see results in 3 weeks or so. Doing some Blogger and Google Sites on Tier 1 will help 🙂

I did notice that my older accounts only got terminate a few days after i put in your custom html. I’m wandering if this is the issue and thats why i’m wandering if you have had this issue.

Yes I had that issues after using the custom html to remove the Tumblr redirect link. To stop it from happening you need to remove this from the code:

I think the creator has complained, even though I left the credit in the code. It’s not my code, I discovered it to share so you guys can remove the URL redirect too. If that part is removed the Tumblrs will not drop.

Ok great. How do you increase the quality of tumblr posts? I’m using Kontent Machine for spun articles with an image and video link. I will point links to them. Anything else i can do this increase the quality?

You can remove the redirect on the Tumblr links: https://www.rankersparadise.com/remove-tumblr-url-redirect/ adding an outbound link to a niche related site other than your own helps too.

Ok great. I only have 1 issue, which is all 120 of my tumblr accounts were suddenly terminated. Even the ones i had no posted on yet were terminated. Do you have this issue? and how do you resolve it?

Yes sometimes the Tumblr blogs drop, I try to put a few in each account to avoid losing a lot in one go. I post from the same IP, which helps to stop them from dropping.

Thanks for this info. I’m looking to rank tons of videos using long tail keywords. I assume this method is the same. My question is, can i just create 2-5 tier 2 tumblr accounts instead of 10 ?. Will it be less powerful with 2-5 pointing to each tier 1?. Also, i use GSA SER and i have scapebox. I guess your method does not require either or them, but could i still use them for tier 2 or 3 links or is it not worth the bother?


Yes this will work the same on videos too, make sure you link to the video and also embed the video in the blog posts. Yes you can create 2 to 5 tier 2 Tumblr accounts, they are there to index the tier 1 and pass some juice down. Try and make sure you use decent Tumblrs on Tier 2 with lots of backlinks pointing to them if you are using fewer. Yes you can use GSA and Scrapebox on Tier 3, use blog comment backlinks to boost the Tumblrs and help index the Tumblr post URLs.

But Kinja provide Nofollow link.
Is it worth to make link wheel by kinja or should go with other web 2.0 which provide dofollow ?

One more question.

Why not we use temp mail to create web 2.0 ?

Temp mail are easy.

Yes you can use a Temp mail if it makes things easier. Sometimes you might need to change your password, Tumblr did it with me recently, and to do that they send you a confirmation email, which of course you can’t do with a Temp email so you will lose the account.

you can replace Kinja, it never indexes either. It’s good to have a mix of dofollow and nofollow links, but yes you can replace Kinja with another platform that is dofollow.

hey nick that as an amazing article, i just wanted to ask can we do the link wheel process as many times as possible to one site but other keywords or limited times??

Yes you can do it as many times as you want to, if you do it more than once to the same page go ahead and use different web 2.0 sites so you get backlinks from many different IPs.

Hello Nick ,
Ranker I am asking about keyword ranking I have purchased link wheel service for my keyword which has keyword difficulty score 28 I used keyword revealer.
you have provided 5 links and all these 5 links are indexed in google search engine but my keyword is not shown in Top 100.
I have checked my competitor Backlinks they have only 2 to 3 backlinks then why my keyword is not in top 100
Is this normal ?
plz guide me

Hi, your order has only just been complete, you need to wait at least two weeks for rank change. You will most definitely rank up for your keyword.

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.

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:


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.

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.

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.

And how can I avoid being banned with FCS Networker?

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 🙂

hello . thx for this great articles . thx alot
but i read all the comment and i have problem when someone ask you if i can use the expired tumblr to rank anather page ofcourse different web 2.0 for trie 1 you said yes you reused the some 50 tumblr but in the some question you answer ather no you must you different web2.0 for trie 1 and ather 50 tumblr for trie2

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.

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 , i have 1 question when i make the web2.0 do i need vpn to hide my footprint from google or no

You do not need to use a vpn.

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.

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.

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

Never been a problem for me 🙂
