SER & Tiers
Just thought I would show you guys what I do. A lot of people are visual, just as I am.
@Ozz did a very similar thing in the beginning which is here: https://forum.gsa-online.de/discussion/879/guide-high-quality-campaign where he goes into a lot of detail.
So here is my version...
The main point here is that contextual properties are able to accrue value with link juice much better than other type of properties.
- I am willing to bet that most people just stick everything in Tiers 2 & 3. That's the lazy way.
- Why would you ever build links to something like somebody else's blog post?
- Or to a guestbook comment that will roll off the front page?
- Some people like building links to bookmarks. In real life, do people link up to somebody's bookmark? Is that natural?
I try to keep my tiers 'pure'. Either pure goodness, or pure crap.
- Think of this system like Legos.
- You can add as many projects as you like.
- You can have T1B, T1C, etc. all pointed to T1, as an example.
- You can literally create any type of special purpose project - coming from any direction - to any project.
- You can add projects and shoot linkjuice from any tier...from any direction...to any set of links.
Since this is related to how the software works, I thought this might help people.
NOTE: You can shoot whatever you want at your moneysite. That is entirely up to you. I'm not going to advise you on what to do, and get involved with SEO questions.
If you need SEO help, go to an SEO forum. That really is not the purpose of this forum.
Do you limit the kitchen sink levels or just fire away?
High PR blogs I assume you talking about blog networks?
- That is where you need to experiment. New moneysites will obviously get less.
- Pretty much no limits
- It can be both high PR comments and blog networks.
how many submissions do you do per day for T1? rough number would suffice, like 20 or 150..
how many excact match keywords do you target? I guess it muss be something above 30 or 50 k searches a month, otherwise 3 tiers would be too much.
web 2.0 like wordpess, tumblr, webs?: do you do set them up manually?
would you mind posting some URls of your money site to spoon-feed us more ;-)
(but I still would enjoy some live sites as example)
Do you find contextual links (articles,web 2.0's, social networks) to be enough in terms of link diversity for your money site? What other platforms in GSA would you set up as separate projects pointing directly to your money site - if any?
@Domainer - I do that for all URLs that I am trying to rank. For unimportant urls, I group them together in one project, and create a more generic set of linkbuilding with just contextual links.
@gtsurfs - SER gets most of the job done, and many times it is enough. If it isn't, then that's where you need to expand your knowledge of seo. But whatever you do with direct links to your moneysite, you need to make sure it is safe and high quality. Some things need to be learned outside of this forum.
@ranknow - When you build links in bulk like we do, you can't get caught up in constantly making sure every link is alive and perfect. It defeats the purpose of building a zillion links. I just set the T1,T2,T3 in the diagram above to verify once per day. Once per week I re-verify those tiers. That is all I can be bothered doing...too many campaigns.
@thisisalex - For that answer, you will have to find my other posts because I have spilled the beans on that. But I can tell you that I build a lot less on the top tier than most people would expect.
Hi. Thanks for this post.
I am just curious if you use other tools than gsa for your linkbuilding? Or is gsa enough for getting good rankings?
I own a copy of xrumer, but I need to limit the time used on linkbuilding as I only have 24 hours a day. So if I can use only gsa and get good rankings (in niche market), then I would rather use my time finetuning gsa than use both gsa and xrumer.
What do you think?
other : you know, how the ROI is, and give everything! ;-)
I have used ser to rank in a number of difficult markets - with nothing else. It is completely worth your time to get into it.
Once you get going with ser, xrumer can still play a valuable role for you by helping to index your ser backlinks. You can do a dump everyday out of ser into xr and then you will really be rocking, with a minimal amount of interaction.
Yeah, I wish I had xr as a backend thing to help out in that way, yet I am able to make a fulltime income with just ser and nothing else.
But I could not make a full time income with just xr and no other software. So that tells you something right there. xr is at its best when you can leverage it against other software.
Thanks for this! Having just bought SER about a week ago, I'm trying to learn as much as I can before "unleashing the hounds".
