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 Lawnmowers.wordpress.org 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.
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.
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!
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!
Set up the blog once , and let the rest take care of it’s self
- Login into VPN
- Go to http://wordpress.com
- 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!
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:
