Three Tier or Pyramid Link Building Technique

“After the panda and penguin update what link building are you still considering that works and will work?”

A question from an old SEO customer, I want to share with you my answer to this  question. Maybe you can share your thoughts and answer also in this  question.

After the two updates, all seo practitioner  believes that to rank your site in google SERP you need a quality back links. It is no longer the  more back link you have the higher rank your site will get. But of course the more high quality back link you get the better your ranking.

This is the reason why guest blogging become very popular to SEO world. The advantage of this  technique is that you will surely get a quality back links from sites that related to your site.  Also if the blog that accept your article is famous and have
tones of traffic, for sure you will get traffic from the blog also.

The only problem with this technique is that you  need to write a super high quality article that impress the blog owner. Having an article with high quality content is not an assurance that the owner of the blog will accept and publish your article.

Guest blogging is a long process, it’s a waiting game.

Why not create your own seo backbone?

Instead of begging blog owners to post your high quality article, why not use those article to build your own seo backbone?
For me I prefer to create my own blogs from web 2.0 sites. I will post articles on them at least twice a month put some back link on them to build their authority.

Many SEO gurus called this as three tier or pyramid type of link building.

You will focus on building the authority of the site where your link is located.

Here is an example of this technique that works  and I believe will still work in the future.

Let’s say you build 20 blogs from 20 web 2.0 sites like blogger, wordpress, livejournal, tumblr, etc. Post at least 2 initial content of the blogs, submit the blog rss feeds to at least 10 rss feed directories.

Now build the second tier, create 2 or 3 blogs  that will point back link to each blog in the first tier blogs. That is 3 X 20 equals 60 blogs.  Also I suggest that you will submit the first tier to at least 20 sbm each, and 20 authority sites.

On the third tier, submit the rss feeds of those 60 blogs to rss feed directories, bookmark them to at least 20 top sbm, and 10 authority sites.

While time goes, you can increase the back link of the blogs in the second tier. And also post from time to time on both first and second tier.  These blogs will be your SEO backbone in the long run.

You can create new blog in the first tier in the future, and use the blogs in the second tier to
get back links on them.

It is a long process, but it is worth to invest  your time and money.

That is my first answer to the question above.

On my next post I will tell you my second answer  to that question.

If you have any questions or comment regarding my first answer I will be happy to hear.

  1. Hi I have gone through your above mentioned process, see below points which i got from your blogs
    1) We need to create web 2.o submit our articles on it
    2) We need to create do popularize these blogs by SB and other authorized off page initiatives.
    3)We need to linked them to our main blogs which we created in firs tier
    4) And finally submit these in different submissions including rss, sbm etc.

    I am quite confuse how you say that we get 60 blogs for me it will be 23 blogs and where our main website is linked on it. And how our website will getting ranking on our targeted keywords within your suggested article. Please let me clear.

    1. Hi Faisal,

      Thanks for the comment, there are 60 blogs because in your first tier or first line there are 20 blogs, and on the second line you need to create 3 blogs pointing to each blog in the first line so that is 20 X 3 = 60 blogs.

      The first line of the pyramid will send back link to your website, and since you build the authority of these blogs they will send authority link to your main site.

      This day we need to focus on quality back links not quantity, but of course the more high quality back link the better.

  2. Hi !!! Ya its a good thinking. Of course, when we talk about guest post, it seems like just begging in front of the blog admin.The strategy which u gave for the substitute is nice strategy to crate a chain of interconnected back links.So in my view The title which u used for this post is fully satisfied with the content.!!!!
    We need guys like u in seo industry who spend a lot of time in finding a new thing and do the research work.
    We are benefited a lot by this type of useful information.

    Thanks a lot….!!!!!

  3. Hi Admin,

    Thx for your clarification, I highly appreciate it. Can you share me some example on which the website is getting ranked within your suggested method, because as i understand that Google can easily find out the sites on which we don’t get back links genuinely and I have heard lots these techniques are supported to be spam.

    1. Hi Faisal,

      Yes, if you do it wrongly surely they will caught you faking your back links. As I mentioned you need to do it right. Do not use those web 2.0 blogs to spam else you are wasting your time. Create high quality content, share to social media as what you are doing to your real website.

      In our experience, blogspot, livejournal, wordpress, tumblr, and other authority web 2.0 are very powerful sites to start your blog.

  4. Hi Sir Ed,

    Can you please give me a sample of the authority site you’re referring on this statement:

    “Now build the second tier, create 2 or 3 blogs that will point back link to each blog in the first tier blogs. That is 3 X 20 equals 60 blogs. Also I suggest that you will submit the first tier to at least 20 sbm each, and 20 authority sites.”
