Tier 1 & Tier 2 Contextual Links

edited January 2013 in Need Help
I am re-organising many many projects.

I've noticed that on my contextual tier 1, links, there are at least 50% of these are author profiles, or profile pages amongst my contextual tier 1 verified links, that are used by tier 2. 

Now, it seems that tier 2, is building links to these profile pages and it seems like such a waste of resources. Theoretically, over 50% of my tier 2 resources are being wasted on author profiles.

How do you get around this?


  • i manually sort them out by using select by mask *profile*; *user*; *member* and delete them. this will delete most of these profile links.

    How do you do this on 100 projects??
  • you can edit them all at once. select all projects you want to edit --> show verified links and use the select by mask.

    Thanks...would be nice if it was automated to remove profiles and place them seperately, so we don't build links to these urls.
  • May I ask why you do not wish to build links to (I am assuming) your own author profiles? I have quite a few personal author profiles on high PR sites that have "dofollow" links back to my moneysite. By building links to those (obviously in addition to other Tier 1 links), am I not increasing overall link juice and ranking to my money site? 

    If I am wrong, someone please correct me.

    Profile links still work, im usually use it for tier 2, but make sure it have some content related to your site (fill in bio/about me form), at least 300 words.
  • oh thanks for this tip @d3ad
  • @zenn Yes, agree about relevant content. I should have pointed out that I was building links to web 2.0 profile of a REAL profile of website I personally use...for example...using my company Facebook page as T1, or Pinterest profile page, etc...if they have dofollow links and you are actually using those sites, I see no reason not to build backlinks to them to power them up.
