Step 3 – Build ‘Powerful’ manual Web 2.0’s

Filed in Blog, How I rank My Sites, Tutorials by on October 11, 2013 30 Comments

Welcome to Step 3 of my SEO BluePrint, guide/course or whatever you want to call it, I don’t care as long as we get the rankings we want!

Now in the introduction I gave you the plan that you should follow to gain the results that you desire. In the next few steps of this “Absolutely amazingly brilliant Bible of SEO” I am going to go into more detail of everything I mentioned in step 3, and I will show you exactly how to do it.

Building Manual Web 2.0’s gives a solid foundation

When starting a new link building campaign for a site or clients site, the first thing I do is to set up and build manual web 2.0’s. Now i know you can create them using software or get some shit gig off fiverr that does it, but I don’t want any of this crap!

I want quality blogs that actually look like real blogs and there for pass more link juice and go unnoticed with Googles mystical super physic robots!

There are some rules that I follow and it’s imperative that you follow them too, down to a tee!

Doing this alone can rocket your site to the first page

Yes, I have seen cases where just by creating a few of these manual web 2.0’s a site has climbed the SERP’s, and that’s without doing anything else. This is extremely powerful stuff, but let me warn you. It’s not something you can do in  a few minutes. This takes around 4 hours per Web 2.0 property, and that’s once you’ve got the hang of it.

I like to create a minimum of 5, but I try to aim for at least 10. So sit back, grab a coffee and lets begin!

Firstly you will need to prepare your content. It is vital that all of this content is hand written by you!. This way we can be assured that it is totally unique, it is not spun and it is relevant to our subject. Here is what you will need for each web 2.0 that you make:

Think of a name for your blog that is related to your money site/keyword. You’ve got to make it seem genuine. So lets say you were targeting the keyword ‘Cheap Lawnmowers’, you wouldn’t call your web 2.0 ‘cheap because this just looks to obvious and spammy.

You need to think outside of the box a little. Something like:

– The Grass is greener…

– The Perfect Lawn

– The Lawnmower man


……. Ok, not great but you get the drift!


Now you need to register brand new email address, just pop over to hotmail or live .com and make one up. We want this to look as real as possible so its advisable to have a unique email address for each Web 2.0.

The Content

1 x 300 word Welcome article

Just a brief description of what the blog is about. Do not include any links here!

1 x 500+ word Article (Main)

This is the main article where you will place the link back to your money site. Make sure you spend the most time on this one and assure that it is well written and formatted. Also include a couple of contextual links to other sites in the same niche (preferably high pr). Add at least 1 image or an image and a youtube video. Include your link within the first paragraph.

6-8 x related Articles (Filler content)

These are smaller articles of around 250 – 350 words. Just write these really quickly and make sure it is related to the topic of your site. It doesn’t have to be brilliant but it does have to be hand written. Just find articles and paragraphs off other websites and simply re-write them so they are unique. It should take you no more than 15 minutes per article.

1 x About me page

A simple paragraph or 2 about you. (not actually you but a made up person). You can even include the email address on here so that your web 2.0 looks even more authentic.

10-20 images

4-8 Youtube Videos

5-10 Authority links (But not your direct competitors)

A list of relevant keywords that are similar to our main keyword. This site will actually look pretty good when it’s done and it might pick up some long tail keywords, so make sure you include these long tail keywords in your articles!


Don’t leave any trace!  hma

Now that you have all of your content ready, we need to set up our web 2.0, but before this it is recommended that you login to a VPN service so that your I.P address cannot be traced, this way there is no footprint leading back to you, so all of your web 2.0’s will be completely unique.

Now Im not going to spend too much time talking about VPN’s but the one I use is called HMA pro VN (It stands for Hide My Ass!) I think it’s about a Tenner per month but is well worth it! You can select I.P addressed from anywhere in the world!

 Sign up to HMA here


Set up the blog once , and let the rest take care of it’s self


  • Login into VPN
  • Go to
  • Click get started and away you go. Make sure to use the mail address you created!
  • Delete the ‘Hello’ post and example page.
  • Set permalinks to /%postname%/
  • Change the WordPress theme and get into the habit of having a different theme with each web 2.0

Install the following plugins:


Google xml sitemap


With WordPress you can actually schedule your posts, so we can upload all of them at once and forget about it. I always upload my About page (make this a page) and my welcome post right away. I then Schedule all of my other articles for once a week. It doesn’t really matter what order you place them in.

You want to make sure that each article contains an image or an image and video. Format the text with bold where applicable. On some of your posts you want to link out other sites. This will make your blog appear more realistic and not look so obvious (like if you only linked to your money site). Fill in the Title and descriptions with the SEO plugin!


Here are some other useful tips that I apply:

  • Include internal links. I.e, Link to your other posts!
  • add a ‘Contact me’ page ( A great plugin is ‘Contact for 7’)
  • Install W3Cache to speed up the blog


By now you should have a pretty good looking site, and over the next couple of months the posts will publish themselves and you will have created a strong backlink to your money site that not only offers a lot of link juice but it’s extremely relevant!

Almost done!


To make your new powerful web 2.0 even better you can open a new twitter account and include the URL in your Twitter bio. Send a few general tweets out over a week, and then include the link again in one of the tweets!

This will help to get the blog indexed quicker and again, it will like a perfectly normal blog! (Actually, It is a perfectly normal blog, or is it not! hmmm)

You can also purchase a few Facebook likes and other social media links. But nothing over the top and spammy!

Fiverr is ok for things like this


Pheww! That’s it

Just rinse and repeat this process using the different blog platforms, here is a list that you can use:

Later in this SEO blue print we will be looking at building links to your web 2.0’s to boost the authority which will in turn have a positive affect on your money site and shoot up them SERP’s


p.s. Keep a list of all of your manual Web 2.0’s in an Excel sheet for later!

Update: If you want me to build manual web 2.0’s of this quality for you just drop me an email to discuss! I have a team of VA’s that build web 2.0’s for me if you’d like to take advantage just let me know!!

  1. Hey Jason,

    Hope you had a Merry Christmas. Had a question for you. I was reading somewhere else I can remember. So for my clients I add about 50 pages of content for there website and keywords for landing pages. Is it ok to use some of the content for a keyword and spin in and use that for link building purposes instead of going and purchasing another article just for link building?

    Hey David

    Thanks, I would suggest using a completely new article for link building purposes, and also make sure it is well spun!

    I have a question.
    My friend can get me 10 sites that have PR3 (tumblr)..
    Is that any good? I mean posting my content on it and getting them links as backlinks?

    Please let me know,


    Jason Chesters

    Jason Chesters Reply:

    Yes they will be good if you add relevant content. But make sure you diversify your back links with other sources too, don’t just use tumblr! oh, and make sure you use different content for each site


  3. e says:

  4. Jack says:

    Good stuff here Jason.

    I take it the (Welcome) Article goes on the homepage. But does the (Main) article go on the hompage as well or can we make a seperate page for it and all the links to money site:

    ie: –
    -welcome article 300 words
    -internal link to page (/best-lawn-mowers/)
    -500 word article
    -OBL’s to your money site (

    Or is this like a PBN where all the OBL’s to money site NEED to be on the homepage? I assume since these 2.0 sites have no PR because there new it doesnt matter. But I wanted to ask.

    Jason Chesters Reply:

    Create each article as a new post 9therefore it has its own page), however, set up your blog so that your home page displays your recent posts. This way your posts will be on the home page, and you can blast some links directly to your web 2.0 url

    just put your money link in 1 of the articles!

    Hey Jason

    What do you think of using Article builder articles on Tier 1 web 2.0s?


    Jason Chesters

    Jason Chesters Reply:


    I would stick with manual written content for web 2.0’s as you want them to be totally unique


  6. Alex says:

    Of the 10 manual 2.0 sites will all the links back to your site be naked url anchors or do you vary it?

    Such as naked url, partial match keyword, some LSI term, etc?



    Jason Chesters

    Jason Chesters Reply:

    Hi Alex

    I mix it up as much as possible, mainly naked URL and LSI 🙂


  7. Harvie says:

    Great site and good article. dont you think time is better spent outsourcing the articles expect the main one with our money site? I mean I dont think I have 4 hours+ to spend writing generic spun articles and making a site.

    I was thinking about using Odesk and getting someone the create me the 2.0 site and do it for me?

    what do you think of that? Or should I really do it myself?

    As for VPN, have you heard of Tor? can we not use that instead of using a VPN service?



  8. MEga mAn says:

    Can you provide us some of blog host powered by wordpress like

    blog host give free blog on word press platform


  9. Anton says:

    Hello, first of all thank you for your article. I have a question though.

    When I visit my pr tool says the website is PR 9 but say when I visit a website like it says it is PR 0 does that mean a back link from would count as a PR 9 or a PR 0 backlink ?

    Thanks, Hopefully you can help me 🙂 I subscribed to your list.


    Jason Chesters

    Jason Chesters Reply:

    Hey Anton

    It would count as a PR 0 but it would carry good domain authority!


  10. Bruce says:

    Hey Jason. What is the difference between VPN and Private proxies? I read in a forum that account creations has to be done using private proxies only. What is your take on this?


  11. Bruce says:

    *account creations for web 2.0s*


  12. anton says:

    Thanks for the reply. Just bought the with HMA vpn with your link

    Thanks Anton… Much appreciated!!


  13. Lalit says:

    Hey Jason

    Very detailed and awesome article you added.

    In nutshell we should treat these web 2.0 like as our second assets after our money site.

    I do have few queries –

    If a person have many websites on same niche than should he use same set of web 2.0 for all the websites ? Like – Adding fresh content on regular basis and on some articles linked to site A and after few posts linked to sites B.

    I do not find any harm on it.

    Please update your web 2.0 list as well. Some of them are closed.


    Jason Chesters

    Jason Chesters Reply:

    Thank you..

    Yes I’ve been meaning to update the list. I’ll make sure I get it done. If you have many sites in the same niche it is ok to link to them from the same web 2.0’s. However, do not link from every web 2.0 to every site because this could leave a footprint.

    Make sure you link out to other authority sites and mix your links up as much as possible!


  14. Lalit says:

    Did not get you exactly on this …

    However, do not link from every web 2.0 to every site because this could leave a footprint.

    Kindly explain with an example.


    Jason Chesters

    Jason Chesters Reply:

    Please read this post on private blog networks, it talks about leaving footprints!

    Basically, if you have 10 sites in the same niche and they all have exactly the same back links from the same web 2.0’s it may look a little suspicious!!


  15. Mike says:

    Jason, does it really matter about the IP? I mean, search engines don’t know what IP address created the web 2 site because the web 2 sites (WordPress, LJ, Tumblr etc) don’t reveal that to a search engine anyway.

    What you say about that?



  16. Kenneth Tabor says:

    Mike has a good question. I’d like to know about the IP Creation too. How does Google know what IP Address is used to create a blogger or WordPress site?

    It might be a problem on the platform itself, but initial creation shouldn’t be an issue. Can you elaborate on this?


  17. Terry says:

    Hi Jason,
    Thanks for such an informative site 🙂 Can i kindly check with you on this. Once i created the wordpress blog with a newly created email say, you mentioned to rinse and repeat it with other web 2.0 site right? do i use the same email to create other blogs on other platform or use different emails?

    Also, does that mean i need ot hve say 10 different emails with 10 different blog?

    Sorry for the confusing question. am rather new in this 🙂


    Jason Chesters

    Jason Chesters Reply:

    Hey Terry, Yes I recommend setting up a different email address for each manual web 2.0


  18. rajveer singh says:

    thank you very much for web 2.0 links information


  19. Matheus Beck says:

    WOW! Great post.

    Thank you so much!
