“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.
