How To Build The Ultimate PR Network (Rank For Anything)

Hey guys what is happening…It is Becker..

And if you have been around Source Wave recently you’ll notice I am breaking away from screaming/ranting at you via video to write another SEO Omega Guide

 

What Is An Omega Guide?

OmegaIf your a Source Wave virgin (how cute) , SEO Omega Guides are my attempt to make the ultimate resource on a topic of SEO. This is where I cover topics like keyword research, back linking  monetization in such detail that you will literally be an expert by the time you are done reading.

I also want to make it so that you will never have to look anywhere else for this info. One of the biggest issues I had when I first got started was that SEO info is never put in one place intelligently  making learning like a scavenger hunt.

The answer to this scavenger hunt? Source Wave Omega Guides.

 

The Most Effective Link Building Tactic

Today I am going to be going into the most effective link building tactic you can ever learn. If you master this, you can rank your clients and yourself for literally WHATEVER you want. (Notice how I bolded literally)

This is setting up your own high PR themed sites. Most people call this making a blog network.

The funny thing is this is something very few SEO’s know how to do. I have worked with and directed multiple SEO’s yet never met anyone who knows how to build a basic network. Ironically building a solid network is not hard,  nor time consuming, and requires basic knowledge.

What I am about to teach you has allowed me to out class other SEO’s and get my clients results that no one else can. So get excited!

(Also if you appreciate this, go to the like box in the sidebar and give us a thumbs up)

 

SEO Omega Guide : Blog Networks

First off if your brand new to SEO, this will not make sense to you..Go read our free beginners course.

With that being said you need to first understand what the two biggest factors that go into how powerful a link is. These are PR + Relevance. This is heavily explained in THIS Omega guide.

To sum it all up though if you can get a link from a high PR site that is relevant to your site your gonna see VERY large rank increases. Now if you get a ton of these links your gonna see your site dominate Google

PERIOD. I don’t care what hippie SEO theory you have heard, but if you master high PR relevant link building your going to win at SEO. This is also the current algorithms BIGGEST weak spot 

 

Keep In Mind : A PR links can still be good if its not relevant, and a relevant link can still be good if its not super high PR. They are just not PERFECT links.

 

But Heres The Issue

Where the hell are you gonna get a bunch of high PR relevant sites linking to in a timely manner. White hat hippies will tell you by networking with people and guest posting..

News flash: We are SEO’s not public relations experts so good luck getting a link on the home pages of a PR 5 relevant site consistently. On top of that if you guest post your post will go on a inner page of a site that has no PR…In short this crap does not work

So in short..If your pretty much screwed if you want PR+relevant links…

 

UNLESS

You go out there and make your own high PR relevant sites and place links to your money site. This is why blog networks are SO insanely powerful. It gives us the powerhouse links that we would have to work our butts off to get, at a whim.

Using just this method I was able to get a new site of mine (that is shown of in Infinitum) to a PR 4 and crush huge searches in just one month.

In short…Its the beez kneez

 

So How Do We Do This?

Building a good power link base is pretty simple. In fact its comically easy when compared to some of the white hat “quality content” hippy BS out there.

It is done in 4 simple steps

  1. Identifying, scanning and buying high PR domains
  2. Setting up the domains safely
  3. Making the PR domains relevant to your site
  4. Placing links strategically on these domains

So without further adue lets get into that

 

PR Site Links Are Like The Hulk Hogan of SEO..brotha

PR Site Links Are Like The Hulk Hogan of SEO..brotha

 

 

Step 1 : Finding/Buying high PR domains

First off building a blog network is not free. If are strapped for cash either

A) Get a job…

B) Use cheaper SEO methods to give you budget money (Which is not as fast as getting a job)

C) Follow our quick guide on how to make “grunt” money online

 

How Much To Buy Sites For

So yeah..Sorry, this does take some investment depending on the network.

If your just starting, getting a few PR 2-3 sites will cost you about $200 and get you GREAT results as long as you do good keyword research

If your a vet or have a big client budget, you can pick up solid PR 5′s for about $150 to $200 a pop. Then it is just  how powerful you want your network to be. If your doing good research $2k worth of sites with rank you for about whatever you want.

Now if you want to get REALLY competitive, aka your client is paying you 10k+ a month to rank for some serious keywords, then spending 5-10k on a network is a way to ensure they will always have results.

 

How To Find Sites

There are a ton of different ways to find sites. Here are a few

 

1) PR Powershot

If you want to save some money and just want some basic PR 2′s to 3′s then this is the way to go. PR Powershot basically goes out and finds expiring high PR domains on Godaddy. It then allows you to jump in and buy them at the last second.

This takes some time and your going to have to dig to find some winners however I have found and built many small reliable networks using this. The great thing is you can get most pr2 to pr3 sites for about $20 bucks. This lets you get started fairly cheaply.

You are almost never going to find anything higher than a PR 3 on here though..

 

2) Domain vendors

A lot of people will go out there and bid on high PR domains. They will then sell them for profit. These are called domain brokers.

Now there are a few ways to find them..Also when your making mass PR networks having your own private list of domain brokers is very important. Its like having the “hook up”

The best places to look are

 

Google : Do a bunch of related Google searches. You will have to dig but vendors will show up

The digital point buy/sell forum : This is where you will find a lot more underground vendors

 

Other than that you might have to stick to using some tools to find the really high PR domains. A decent one is Fresh Drop

 

How To Choose The Best Sites

I AM BOLDING THIS AND PUTTING IT IN RED BECAUSE ITS VERY VERY IMPORTANT

Choosing the best sites is not hard, but if you do not know what your doing your going to lose hundreds of dollars. Just follow these steps and you will be fine

 

1) Scan the sites backlinks

This is done by throwing the site into majestic SEO. What we want to see is large amount of links coming from good sources.

This is because when a domain expires, if it does not have a healthy link profile it loses PR fast when the content changes. We will be changing the content, so it is super important that the site has good links.

On top of this, the links ALSO effect the amount of link juice the site will give. A PR 5 with 100k links will give more juice than a PR 5 with 40 links. This also depends on where the links are coming from, and the PR of the links, this can be a pain to find out though.

In short though, a good amount of links with a good trust and citation flow (10+) is a good sign.

 

Here is my criteria for PR domains. Feel totally free to break this, as I do all the time. These are simply my best practices to be 100% safe

PR 3 – 100+ links

Pr 4 – 800+ links

Pr 5 – 1500+ links

 

2) Make sure the PR is real

The next thing we need to do is make sure this is not a fake PR domain

 

Fake PR domain: When you 301 redirect a high PR domain to another site, the site gains the PR of the redirected site. A lot of people will do this, then sell the site that gain the “fake PR”. Then as soon as it is sold they will remove the redirect, thus wiping out the sold sites PR

 

This is very easy to check for. Simply go to this fake PR checker. Throw the domain in and look at the results.

 

3) Make sure the site is healthy

The last thing we want do is make sure the site is 1)indexed and 2) healthy

A lot of people will go to google and enter “site: (the url). If the site is indexed it will show up.

I go one step further though. I simply to put in the domain name (Source-wave.com). If the site is healthy and has PR it will show up due to it exact match-ness. If it is not showing up this is usually a sign the site stinks. It might be indexed, but that does not mean its not penalized.

 

Voila, You Now Know How To Buy High Pr Domains

As long as you make sure to follow the info above, you are pretty much guaranteed to be an effective domain buyer..Now onto the next step

 

 

 

Step 2: Setting Up Domains Safely

If you do not know, Google does not like blog networks. This is because they work REALLY well and are very hard to find without a manual review..IF they are done right.

Now if Google finds your network your PR sites will get deindexed and your money sites will get a penalty. We want to avoid this. The good news is that if you follow a few simple steps it is highly unlikely that your PR sites will ever be found.

These are those simple steps and things to avoid

 

Set Your Sites Up On Different IP Addresses

While I personally believe this is a tad overkill, it is basic practice to put your sites on what is called “different class C ip hosting”.

We do this so that Google cannot simply check a single IP and find all of your PR sites. Though keep in mind, if someone is manually checking your IPs your probably screwed anyways unless you have a very natural looking network.

If you are not very technical, don’t worry. Simply sign up for SEO hosting here. It is a fairly inexpensive way to have all your sites on different IP addresses.

Then simply install WordPress and hosting as usual..If you do not know how to do that, then go to our beginners course.

This will give you very basic IP protection. I would not dive any deeper than this though. Your IP addresses won’t usually get looked at until you’ve made some other mistakes.

 

Do Not Interlink Your PR Sites

This means if you have two PR sites linking to your money site do not link them together. This leaves a huge footprint and sets off a ton of red flags

 

Do Not Publicly Sell Links

Doi…First off (and I don’t care what any sales letter tells you), there is no such thing as a safe advertised network and there never will be ever again.

What drives me nuts is that people think Google is clever enough to track their analytics, hosting, etc but is to stupid to read the huge SEO forums online when it comes to combatting spam.

If you advertise selling your networks links on forums or BIG public places your gonna catch a spanking. This also puts your network at a huge risk. Do not do this OR if you want to do it privately.

With that being said, if your thinking about joining a network ask yourself “Could Google easily find this”

 

Make Your Sites Semi Unique

By this I mean different wordpress themes, unique content and different layouts.

Now take this a far as you want. This actually does not make your network any less trackable from a “technical” side. It also does not effect how powerful the links are.

The reason we do this is to make our sites not so obvious at first glance. If all your sites are just on a blank wordpress theme with the same content, its very easy to spot it as a blog network.

Now if you want your network to even be able to pass a manual review, go all out with this. Make your sites look legit, put decent content to them and format them differently.

I am somewhat in the middle with this. I make most my network sites “video style” sites or add a few 150 word articles. I also try to make the sites seems like real sites.

 

REMEMBER: The chance of your network getting a manual review are slim to none. If your brand new to this, it is more important to take action and just get the network up. Do not spend all night trying to make your network “pretty”. It truly does not matter when your network is in its “baby” stage.

 

Just Don’t Be Stupid

If you go on any forum, your going to see people endlessly debating about the stuff above. Just remember these people are stupid…Like really stupid.

As long as you don’t do anything blatantly stupid your chances of getting busted are pretty unlikey if you have a small personal network.

Focus more on taking action and don’t let paranoia stop you. Now lets move to the next step

 

 

 

We are 2k words into this..Take a break and watch a funny video

 

Step 3 : Making Your Sites Relevant

So this is where we make our network like 3x more effective. This is because we are going to turn our sites into “perfect link farms”. We are going to do this by making the sites relevant to your niche.

 

So What Does It Mean To Be Relevant?

Being “relevant” is actually pretty simple. Google looks at some very basic things when determining what a site is “relevant” too.

Its looks at things like

-Title and meta tags

-The content on the page

-Image titles

 

Whatever you fill the above areas with will determine what your site is “relevant:” to.

 

How Do We Use This?

So ideally if we are trying to rank a site for a keyword like “Light Sabers for sale” we want to make our PR network links relevant to “lightsabers”

So we could go out and buy five PR5 sites. We would then fill these sites with lightsaber related info.

Ideally, we would want a site with a relevant URL. This is VERY hard to do though, and is not that important. So in short, do not let a PR sites url be a factor.

 

For example 

Title : Reviews of Lighsabers

Content: A 150 word article talking about why Dart Vaders lightsaber should of been pink

Images : Titled “lightsabers” and preferably of lightsabers

 

Boom The Site Is Relevant

Now this is the bare minimum you have to do to get maximum results. If you want to make your PR sites seem more legitimate go crazy. Overall though, this will make your sites the perfect place to get links from.

 

Does The Site HAVE To Be Relevant

Look…It would be a HUGE waste of money if you could only use one PR site for one money site/site your trying to rank. For example, you might have other sites you want to rank in Google but your “lightsaber” site is not relevant

Remember what I said in the beginning though…PR links are still very powerful even if they are not relevant.

So, what I do is build a PR network around the most competitive niches I am targeting. This way the links give me a lot of ground in the TOUGH niches. Then I will add a few other links on the PR site to my easier niches.

This way my tough niche sites still rank and my lower competitive niche sites also rank even though they do not have the most “relevant” links.

 

Step 4 : Strategically Linking

Okay now that we have our sites set up, time to just slap links all over them…NO!

If you have spent any time here you already know there are a ton of factors that effect how much juice a link passes on. You also know that Google has some pretty sharp over optimization rules.

If you don’t know these things, then here is EXACTLY how you need to link from your sites.

 

The Rule Of 3

One thing you got to keep in mind is that you do not just have to place one link per money site on your PR sites. Each link will send more juice to your site, with diminishing returns.

This basically means each links is less powerful, but is still powerful since it is coming from a high PR relevant site.

 

So what I like to do is build 3 links per money site. I do it in the following pattern

-The first link is an exact anchor text link (lightsabers for sale)

- The 2nd link ia relevant anchor text link (star wars)

- The 3rd link is either a url link (http://lightsabersforsale.com) or a picture link..Like the one below

 

fat_jedi

Yes this was neccesary

 

 

Too Many Links = Bad

Having too many links on your PR site will not totally ruin the power of your links, however for optimal results try to keep your outbound links under 10.

If your running a link selling business, try to keep it under 80 and there will still be decent juice. After 100 your gonna start to see a huge decline in juice.

 

Get It On The Page With The PR

You must must must get your links on the page with the PR. This will always be the home page. There are a few ways to do this.

-In the side bar

-In the footer

-In the content

 

The best place to place the link is at the start of the content. A cool thing about sidebar link though, is you will get multiple (site wide) links from it. This gets you a solid amount of link juice.

 

It Is Pretty Simple

As long as you follow the simple guidelines above your gonna have a hard time messing up.

 

 

Bam..Get Ready To Sell A Ton Of Lightsabers!

I am hoping your niche is not lightsabers, but you get the point.

By following what I laid out above you can be as competitive as you want to be OR just crush smaller niches left and right. High PR relevant links ARE the most powerful links you can create efficiently.

 

So What Now?

Well if you are new to this I suggest you first get REALLY good at keyword research. Feel free to subscribe for our free “24 hour” SEO keyword research guide.

Then you should go out and try using PR power shot to find a few cheap PR2-3s.

If you did good keyword research your going to see almost overnight results. Then make some money from those sites and rinse/repeate

Pretty easy =)

 

And if your a veteran..Well I am sure you already have all sorts of idea!

    When making a PR link site, can it rank and build PR even if it did not have previous PR? I have a .com domain that is purely the keyword I am trying to rank for, so I am putting relevant things all over it in a hope for it to rank. Do I need links to rank no matter what? Do sites with perfect content relevance/perfect domain relevance rank without backlinks?

    Hey Becker!

    This was an absolutely Awesome article! Really appreciate all of the SEO guides you write for us!

    Cheers,

    Ps. I noticed that you url for this page is missing the ‘k’, just a heads up :P……..

    I actually forgot to post my two questions!

    How many pages do you generally have on your High PR site? Just a Homepage and about page, or some other relevant pages as well?

    If you’re just relying on the homepage for ‘relevance’ – do you only use ONE of the 150 word article you talk about? (In addition to some quick, image/video content)

    Thanks in Advance Becker :)

    The odds are that if your competitors who spent tons of money on SEO check your backlinks they will find out quickly you are running such network. So what they will do, they will report your site as spam and this will trigger manual review.

    So protect your links from major competition spying tools (bots).

    William:
    You CAN do that… but its a lot easier, faster, and cheaper to just buy high PR sites and make them relevant. You would need to put a lot of effort into pushing up a site’s page rank that didn’t previously have PR.

    Yes, you pretty much do need links of some sort to rank in almost any niche. The days of getting a good ranking with an EMD only are long gone.

    No, perfect content doesn’t matter for getting your initial rankings, but it helps a lot to keep the SERP rankings high for a longer time. And you can’t get the initial rankings very quickly (if at all) without at least a few links.

    Hi Alex,

    thank you again for a nice article! :) I knew that something different than a video is coming this time :D

    As for the blog network – are the blogs somehow linked together like a linkwheel or are they just standalone blogs that link to the money site?

    Also, can you build these blogs on web 2.0 blogging platforms or do they have to be set up on regular domains?

    Best regards,
    Jan

    Hey Becker, great and detailed post! Does it matter if a domain has been dropped? I see some sites with pr5 that were dropped and re-registered in 2012 and 2013. They have a good backlinks, but I’m worried that the pr would drop to 0 after the next update.

    We have noticed that even if you buy a great domain that has a great history and PR- no red flags, and then populate it with content that is not the same as the original subject, the PR rank simply falls off after a few months (as soon as Google catches on). So, the question is- if I can take a PR 0 and make it a PR 4 in months time that will last forever, ( and we CAN do this), wouldn’t that be better than having a PR 5 that goes down to a PR 1 in 4 months, even if we do everything right? I find that building the rank is better long term than buying the rank and having it fall off. Your take?

    I am so inspired Becker. Thanks a Million. If I use 10 PR 2 sites, does that equivalent to Two PR 5 Sites? What do you think?
    Thanks.

  22. March 4, 2013

    Hey Becker,

    So I would need to host my network sites on a completely different IP then my money site right?

    So it is worth buying 5 pr 3 domains, setting up the sites to be relevant etc……rather than just buying 5 page rank 3 contextual links?

  23. Joe
    March 4, 2013

    Becker,

    You mentioned different IP’s. What if for the sake of site speed as well as masking IP’s you were to use Cloudflare DNS servers?

    I run a dedicated server with 6 different C class IP’s and all my WP sites are on the Cloudflare network.

    Is that good or bad? I’m sure they can run a PTR though.

  24. March 4, 2013

    I like your videos. I enjoy your upbeat attitude and detailed information, from someone who seems to know what you are talking about. So bring on the videos. Not that I won’t enjoy this article when i read it later today. (didn’t do it yet)

    So more videos!!!

    What a great resource! so you mean, even if a domain has a record of being dropped, it’s still good? Dropped domains are pretty cheap!
    One more question, which tool to use to get those data like
    PR 3 – 100+ links
    Pr 4 – 800+ links
    Pr 5 – 1500+ links

    Thanks a lot!

    If a registrar gives free hosting with a domain purchase, could we just host our network sites there? I think each site would be on a different IP?

    March 4, 2013

    Hey Becker

    Do you have to send backlinks to your high pr blogs to keep there high pr or just adding new content will be enough?

    Thanks Gav

  29. March 4, 2013

    Nice article and something I have been wanting to do for awhile.

    If I wanted to do local SEO, can my sites be a general them of small business? Or do I have to choose particular niches such as plumbing, insurance, etc.?

    Thank you,

  34. March 4, 2013

    Should a tool like Digi Link Doctor help us with all of those links that now have no page once we take over the new domain?

    It somehow takes care of the 404 error codes.

  37. March 4, 2013

    Would it leave a footprint if I host all of my money sites on one IP and use my private blog network (hosted on separate C-class IPs) to all link to those money sites?
    If so, I would have to get spearate hosting for all of my money sites. SEOHost could start to get rather pricey! Are any other cheaper and safe options available i.e. a GoDaddy package?

  38. March 4, 2013

    I shared that video with almost everybody in my social circles. That was one of the funniest videos I have seen in ages. Awesome find, Becker!

  39. March 4, 2013

    Becker have you ever used web 2.0 sites to host your domains?? Some are free and this way you could keep your ip’s different also. Just wanted to get your opinion on this.

  40. Chuck
    March 4, 2013

    Hey Becker,

    Great cumulative knowledge and skillsets you are relating to us!

    Regarding a past Omega guide: you mention that when you purchase high PR links, one of the criteria was that they not come from a site with porn or gambling links. What if, however, the site you are trying to rank is in fact an adult content site. As you have hinted in some of your courses, they ARE very easy to rank, even without high PR links (from what I hear, wink wink nudge nudge.) However, where would you recommend getting link juice for these types of sites. On a private blog network as outlined here?

    Thank You,
    Chuck

  41. March 4, 2013

    After buying the high PR site and throwing links on it, do you add that site into your SENuke campaigns and work on backlinks to it as well, to keep the PR up or do you basically set it and forget it?

    Also, the 10 link limit and 3 links per site, is that 10 links total with each site getting 3, so about 3 sites can be promoted with each high PR site, or is that 10 sites total, with 3 links each, so it ends up to being about 30 links?

  42. March 4, 2013

    First of all great content….. I really appreciate it!

    I too have had problems with buying aged domains with a PR of 4 or 5 and they lose PageRank even though they are hosted on a private c class at seohosting.com and have new content put on them that was related to the content that was there before the domain was bought…. (checked out at http://archive.org/web/web.php)
    Can you recommend the best way to try and stop the pagerank from deteriorating over time please?

    Thanks

    Man I am so thankful that you don’t charge for this info!! This will help me get ahead for sure. Thanks.

  44. March 4, 2013

    It doesn’t matter how much you try to explain, there are always more questions! And I have 2 more-
    Is there an average number of sites you try to include in your networks pointing back to your money site? Or does it depend on the results and the competition?
    And there was a comment up above about the PR sites that you have purchased losing their rank after a couple months. Is that because of not using a 301 re-direct?

  45. March 4, 2013

    Hey Becker:

    Another great post full of great information for newbies, intermediates and those who think they know it all.

    I have been doing this on and off for a few years, and I get something new or a new twist on something old from all of your posts and videos.

    I have been recommending you as a MUST read to a lot of the people I know in the industry.

    Now for my daily begging session….Dude! Let me in on Source Wave Autopilot. I made the mistake of getting in at the Lazy Ace Level instead of going Nuclear right off the bat. Okay, so 10 lashes for me with a wet noodle…send me to Singapore where I will get caned, call me an IDIOT as much as you want (I’ve already been beating myself over the head and doing that over and over)…but let me upgrade, please! There’s the magic word. Does it still work?

    My best!

    All my money sites are on a Hostgator reseller package ($24/month). You get many different IP addresses. The trick is not to add your domains at the same time. Add one today, the next tomorrow and so on and all your money sites will be on different ip addresses. But I would not use this for building a network.

    Also, for a blog network, your sites don’t NEED to be hosted on a hosting service as good as SEOhost. There are cheaper ones. If you think about it, you don’t need 99.9% up time for these websites because you won’t have customers coming in and buying goods from these sites right?

    There is a cheap one on WF, it’s called something like ‘turnkey hosting’. Very good prices and there are coupons if you search thoroughly enough!

    And yes, thank you team source-wave for a great article!

    My Last Question, I promise ;)

    When you buy multiple High-PR sites do you use them to link multiple domains….

    Let me explain. You have 3 H-PR sites (A, B and C).

    Is it safe to be linking to three money sites (1, 2 and 3 )using all of these H-PR’s?

    ie. A, B and C links to 1
    A, B and C links to 2
    A, B and C links to 3

    So, will google find it suspicious that the three H-PR’s just happen to be linking to the same three money sites?

    Cheers Again Becker.

    Josh.

    Hi Becker.

    Valerie had a very salient (critical) question about whether PR drops off after a few months if the content changes.

    Is this true?

    If it is, your strategy won’t work.

    Thanks a ton, man! I have been commenting all over the place…including FB, and generally trying to make myself a pest so I can grab your attention.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I will submit a ticket and wait for a response from you guys.

    BTW, I took your advice on foreign language websites, and I am ranking a 3 month-old website: 33 top 10s in Google & 19 top 3s, 458 Bing top 10s with 291 top 3s. The basic work was there, just had to give it a bit of love per your suggestions. I have moved on to other niches, but I will let you know how that pans out.

    Oh, and I won’t beg anymore.

    Thanks a ton!

  61. March 5, 2013

    If you’re that worried, why not link to a site that you don’t own, but relevant, authoritative, and non-competitive with one of the 3 sites? That way their OBL profile is not homogenous. Linking out to good sites is never a bad thing.

  62. Becker

    When buying expiring domains does it matter if you allowed it to expire then re-registered it?

  66. March 5, 2013

    does it matter where the domain is bought from, such as, godaddy or namecheap. and can you have them all registered to yourself?

  67. March 5, 2013

    What are your thoughts on linking strategies to those(PBN) sites.
    EG
    Relevant links(anchor text ABC)—>(PBN)(anchor text or just URL)—>(money site)
    Who gives a rats ass—>(PBN)((anchor text or just URL)—>(money site)

    One, Becker you need to stop doing this. This is too valuable.

    Two, since your giving a ton away, i might as well say this, most people wont do it anyway. I set up all of my blogs in my network properly, i install like allinone seo, related posts, new theme stuff like that.

    Then i post spun but readable articles to all of them. Link to my money site through images, place youtube videos on them etc. I have software to do this.

    Anyway, right now i am dominating a keyword, ranking #1, which makes me around $200 a day from the one ranking (Although its hard to tell, my money site ranks for a bunch of longtails too). Anyway, I have about 75 PR domains set up like this.

    I also have a PR blog network of around 200 web 2.0′s that i post the same content to.

    For each of my sites, i have my VA build SEnuke links to the sites. Then i blast them the fuck out of with Xrumer. Virtually all my blogs keep there PR and massively increase there DA/PA.

    This is how im gonna get to $20k month.

    Ironically im outranking people who are spending 5 or 10k a month in link buys. I figure my whole network cost me a total of $10k to make. But as you see, results are worth it.

  87. March 5, 2013

    Awesome article! I have two questions tho.

    Can I put a Link in a sidebar? As I heard especially for new sites it would look “unnatural” especially if the site has a big index.

    Nother thing: Sounds maybe strange but doesn’t google SEE that you all registered those domains at the same time? Or is it flawless?

  88. March 5, 2013

    This newbie would like to know if any of the automated tools work. Have they been rendered useless by all the Google Updates.

    I noticed that the tips I’ve read so far have to do with manual applications of your strategies. Where does a person find the time?

  89. Becker

    Hello Becker,
    Very good article.
    I enjoyed the article with lots of tricks of the trade and valuable strategies.

    I need a clarification from you.

    What is wrong in having articles published in sub domains of sites like tumblr,posterous etc..and use them for contextual links to the money site.Won’t this serve the purpose of having links from different IP addresses?

    Can Google find out the ownership of these sub domains?

  94. March 6, 2013

    Andy,

    Those 2.0′s, are they the ones you get from automated tools (SENuke for instance) or did you manually create (re outsource) 2.0′s through Squidoo etc?

  95. Oli
    March 6, 2013

    Noooo our precious Source Infinitum knowledge, nooooooo ;)

    Wicked post Becker, and that video is hilarious, people are taking it too seriously.

    Anyways have a few questions.

    1. In regard to making your High PR Blog Titles / Meta’s relevant to your money site, I noticed whilst (sneakily) trawling through your Sourcetabs link profile, one of your blogs is something like ‘Guitar playing, Dallas taxi driver’. So I’m assuming you can make your High PR blog relevant to several things at once by getting creative with the titles and metas? Any advice on implementing this correctly?

    2. What are your thoughts on using spun content for you High PR Blog posts? I normally write a 150 word post and spin it, then reuse it over the 4-5 blogs I currently have. Is this ok? Or is it better to just write a fresh one each time? I might be overthinking this..

    Cheers for the good stuff Becker

  96. March 6, 2013

    Video was funny as shit lol Great content becker. I already got a network of 4 set up pr 3 a few pr 4s and one pr5. Might need more to rank for a term like “car donation new york”

    So far im creeping though ,let see how things pan out.

    Hi Becker, always appriciate for awsome info,
    I feel so lucky that i found SourceWave, after taking few SEO courses on the internet.
    Most of courses were pretty helpful, but i think Source Wave is the best!!!!
    so, i was wondering, how many pages/posts have to be ranked on first place on google,
    in order to become a high authority site, which enables rank any page/post high without any backlink support? is it different on every niches?? I would appriciate for your thought
    Thanks in advance

    You’re way too young to know -

    REAL 60s Hippies don’t wear White Hats! maybe Tie-dye or DayGlo, flowers in their hair, etc.

    I think you meant the 80s New Agers who do meetings, get in touch with their feelings, “network”

  99. March 6, 2013

    Good article but you missed some important points if you want to build a network the right way that google won’t find:

    - IP diversity is important for good domain trust. Plus SEO hosting is a footprint in and of itself. You should use multiple shared hosting accounts across many companies. 2 or 3 domains on each host.

    -Use multiple registrars with private whois or fake data (don’t use fake data on domains you care about)

    -Vary the themes, plugins, permalinks, and design

    -Don’t use analytics, adsense, webmaster tools, or any other google service. Or any 3rd party service for that matter that could be used to identify your network.

    -Link to competitors with keywords you don’t want to rank for or that you know they won’t rank for. Make the linking seem natural.

    There’s probably some other stuff but that’s all I can think of. Don’t underestimate google’s ability to find your network.

    For a small private network this is a tad overkill and I want people to not think so much and get out there n start testing!

  102. March 6, 2013

    Thanks Adam for the addition links to competitors with anchor text you don’t care about is
    a very good idea.
    Very good

  103. March 6, 2013

    Becker,

    Great report your stuff is awesome.

    My question is, say you purchase a PR 2 or 3 or higher then only put a 150 word article on it isn’t that classed as thin content and surely when Google has another look at the site they will remove the PR.
    Or maybe I’ve missed something.

    Steve

  104. hemi427
    March 6, 2013

    Adam, could you explain a bit more: – “Link to competitors with keywords you don’t want to rank for or that you know they won’t rank for. Make the linking seem natural. ” thanks

  105. March 6, 2013

    Hi,

    I have a question. Let’s say my money site is about cars. Then, I buy a high PR domain about burgers which has lots of burger-related links pointing to it.

    According to this guide, I would have to replace the content of my burger site into content about cars to make it relevant enough to link to my money site about cars.

    The question is, wouldn’t the burger-related backlinks to the high PR former burger site make it irrelevant? I mean wouldn’t burger-related backlinks pointing to the now car site make the site seem odd and raise red flags in G (e.g. burger anchor text pointing to a car site, a burger image-link pointing to a car site) ?

    I hope I made my question clear.

    - Pogi

  106. Gez
    March 7, 2013

    You could also use wayback machine and build the site as it once was, so if you find a PR4 domain on photography build the site around photography and not weight loss, this also minimizes PR loss, just make sure you don`t use the original content as it would be copyrighted.

  107. March 7, 2013

    In Majestic, do you think it´s relevant that often you see this:
    http://www.domain.com – 20 000 links (great)
    http://domain.com – 6 links (not so great)

    Just wondering cause some of my PR domains have killed it and some have not helped at all.

    Hey Becker,

    This is a super post! Backlinking is so freakin huge, especially if you suck at keyword research OR you want to take on more competitive niches.

    I have been registering and RANKING domains ever since I found out about you and Source Wave. Every time I have a hurdle, I just head over here and find the post you probably made about that particular subject.

    Where to find good backlinks was a great hurdle, until I found a few of your posts.
    Then I found a post on how to Monetize. I was using Adsense, but now I almost feel ashamed after reading your monetization post!

    I’m WELL on my way to finally making some money because I’ve worked hard on mastering the steps one at a time.

    1. Keyword Research Methods DONE
    2. On Page SEO Methods DONE
    3. Back linking. DONE
    4. Monetization – STILL LEARNING
    5. Scaling – CAN’T WAIT!

    Check out these results man….

    Domain Registered Jan 23, 2013. *8 days to #5 Google*
    EMD.com with 9900 searches/month [exact match] & $5 EPC in iPhone niche.
    I ranked #5 after 8 days, and now about a week later
    Currently I sit at #3 or #4 depending on the day.

    Domain Registered Jan 30, 2013. *7 Days to #16 Google*
    EMD.com with 9900 searches/month [exact match] in the Tattoo niche

    Page 1 is 100% Tumblr sites….is that easy to beat?

    Domain Registered Feb 21, 2013. *4 Days to #7 Yahoo & #4 Bing*
    EMD.com with 33,100 searches/month [exact match] in the Gaming Niche
    I placed a backlink to the site before Google indexed it, and I think they
    sandboxed me as I’m not in Google yet. HOWEVER
    Ranked #7 in Yahoo.com & #4 in Bing.com

    AND THE GRAND DADDY!!!!
    Domain Registered Feb 24th, 2013. *48 Hours To #4 Google**, #1 Bing, #2 Yahoo!*
    EMD.com with 4,400 searches/month [exact match] with $9 EPC in Software Niche
    I waited for indexing this time before my first and only backlink.

    Thank you thank you thank you for your amazing free info! As SOON as my blogs start pulling consistent income, I’ll be joining Source-Wave paid membership.

    Hello,

    thanks so much for you valuable article! Some of my websites could really need a kick.

    Can you pls clarify something?

    YOU WROTE:

    3) Make sure the site is healthy
    I simply to put in the domain name (Source-wave.com). If the site is healthy and has PR it will show up due to it exact match-ness.

    Just to clarify, what has to show up, something like that:
    beinventful.com
    beinventful.com/
    NOTICE: This domain name expired on 01/28/2013 and is pending renewal or deletion. Welcome to beinventful.com. This Web page is parked FREE, courtesy …

    or the “real” “old” version of the website, which rarely happens.

    Another question, seems I found a good PR website, but after some investigation I found out that the expired domain (real PR) redirects to a valid domain. Is it worth the effort?

    Thanks for your help

    Thanks a lot!

    Hey Becker,

    Fantastic post (as usual). As a matter of fact, I earlier followed these steps (from your WSO) and got straight onto page 1 for a low-competition keyword.

    My question is now this: how do I get my target page to rank for 20 other relevant keywords? Do I have to buy 2-3 high-PR sites for each keyword + arrange for additional SEO hosting to house those sites? (might it be cheaper to just go out and buy the first SERP positions with Adwords?)

    I look forward to your reply, bro —

    Best,

  117. March 10, 2013

    Hey Brad,

    That’s a great question. I would like to know the same thing.

    HOWEVER, I’m pretty sure that the whole point of getting SEO Host is so it does NOT get pricey. With their $19.95/mo. account, you get dedicated IPs for all of your domains. That means you just need one account for unlimited domains (all your money sites and your blog network sites).

    Someone please correct me if I am mistaken.

    Thanks,

    Jeroen

    Hey Beckinator!

    I can’t believe you share this stuff with us for free :) I shared it on FB and G+.

    Question: If I’m hosting sites on HostGator, do I have to ‘move’ them to SEOHost or do I just input the domains to change their IPs?

    I mean… do I need to then transfer all the WP files over etc and completely change hosting to SEO Host or do they work together…?

    Know what I mean?

    10 pdf
    25 wiki links
    20 social bookmarking
    10 web 2.0

    Will google consider it same links coming to a website again and again. Will it help websites to get PR because it is the same process every week.

    Hey Becker. Great post man! I have one question. I’ve seen you say 10 posts per PR. On here you said 10 outbound links, which would be only 3ish posts with your “rule of 3.”

    Could you clarify please? Thank you, sir!

    Hi Becker,

    First thanks for these valuable SEO posts.

    I had a look at http://sourceautopilot.com/ and saw that all the 3 packages are closed, kindly let me know when there will be a gap to subscribe (for a project I have).

    I want to tell you more about this project, how can I contact you?

    Thanks.

    Im currently looking for sites to put my text link on.
    I found a PR6 site with over 4,3 million backlinks and 6700 referring domains.
    55% of anchor text is just one keyword so i think its terribly over-optimized.

    So naturally I think most backlinks are of low value but im wondering if its still better than a PR3 site with real and healthy 20k backlinks?

    Thanks

    Alex,

    What would you recommend to someone that wants to host 3 HI PR sites per money site Virtual Private Server or Dedicated C Class IP Hosting or Shared SEO Hosting.

    And do money sites as well as HI PR sites need to go on seo-hosting or just the HI PR sites?

    Thanks

    Hey Becker, I was looking into blog networks and I cam across this on the Warrior Forum…

    It looks really good but I wanted to ask you what you thought before I went and spent any money..

    Thanks in advance!

    Hey becker,

    thinking about buying some pr 5 links,

    how about if i mash some pr 1+ links (10/day) from seNuke as tier2

    will this increase the value of the juice or is it just not worth it?

    cheers

  132. March 29, 2013

    pr 5 domains* ofc

    I finally got a few of these. Not only is this easy as hell but a PR3 from Godaddy only costs $20 if you know where/how to look.

    Real PR too!

  134. April 1, 2013

    Becker,
    Thank you for all your instruction. We’ve begun researching and purchasing PR2-4 domains and have successfully navigated the auction process on several now.

    What this path is leading to is a handful of new hosts. The lazy man in me would prefer to host everything on our own servers where hosting costs are greatly reduced. Yes, we can get different IPs for each site, but…

    What about domain registrant information? We started setting everything to the same registrant details, but then realized this could be a red flag.

    Additionally, what of DNS settings? Any concerns for using the same DNS settings for all these new sites coming in?

    We’re prepared to use archive.org to model the sites based on their historic posts (when we can), but all this work is for naught if we lose PR because of identical registrant details.

    Thoughts? Thanks in advance.
    M

    Thank you, Adam!! This answered my questions!!

  136. April 3, 2013

    Becker,

    With respect to PR and Relevancy, once I have purchased my PR sites to link to product review sites, am I limited to linking to only 1 product review site or can I use the PR sites to link to 5 review sites in separate review articles, YouTube pictures, etc.

    Thanks,
    Sean Hussey

  137. April 3, 2013

    Becker,

    One more thing.

    I am an Infinitum & SEO Underdog subscriber. In the Underdog course following the Product Review segment, you mentioned “Non-Authority” niches and information that you were making available in a separate course regarding how to pursue. Now that the Underdog site has been taken down where do I find that information?

    Thanks for your help.

    Sean Hussey

  138. April 4, 2013

    Becker, what is up?
    I just bought a domain that has the following fresh data from majestic:
    CF:44
    TF:43
    backlinks: 134k
    historic backlinks: 332k

    OSE – PA:35

    But when I click through to the top dozen links pointing to it (in ahrefs), the links are no where to be found.

    I checked the PR to make sure it’s valid, which it is.

    I feel like I got scammed somehow but now sure.
    Can all these links just disappear? no way right?

    Your thoughts here would be greatly appreciated.

  139. April 4, 2013

    Nevermind Dude,
    A quick follow up to my comment from a few minutes ago.

    I found out what this guy was doing.
    He has his link hidden at the very bottom of the page’s source code.
    I can’t really figure out how he got it there on hundreds of thousands of sites but who cares. At least I know the links are “legit”

    Thanks.

    Do you also “SEO” your PR sites ie continue to link to PR with, for example, ultimate demon campaign?

    April 6, 2013

    Yo Becker Great post dude. :-)

    Do you or anyone you trust/recommend sell networks like this? My skill set lies else where and if I could buy some networks like this at a fair price my time could be better targeted at on other jobs.

    I checked out your autopilot service but don’t want the high numbers of links, I just need a small number of high PR relevant links.

    Also do you ever sell high PR links..? Again these would be of use and I’d rather buy them off someone I trust :-)

    Thanks again for the info!

  142. Tim

    April 8, 2013

    one more question on this if i may. i want to throw a lot of backlinks at these new sites i buy to mainstain and improve their PR. I buy from a fellow 40,000 backlinks a month to big PR sites like youtube that don’t get penalized, so my question is since these blog network sites aren’t trying to rank, the penalty google might give them, is that a penalty just to not make them rank well (which i could care a less since they are just for link juice) or would it be a penalty that could delist the site or put it in a category of a ‘bad neighborhood’ site

  145. Damien
    April 8, 2013

    When you use majestic seo to check the links and you say 100+ for pr3 do you mean 100+ links in the fresh index or historical index as the fresh index indicates links made in the last 30 days? is this what should be over a hundred links as i have found domains with only 20 links in fresh index yet 6000+ links in historical?

    its 19.95/mo only for 10 domains = only 10 different ip addresses

    I am stuck trying to buy a high PR domain. PR Powershot seems limited to me. There is just one domain for sale with lots of backlinks >10000 and PR3 but it is by its domain name acting in the auto insurance segment which is nothing I am inclined to do. Price tag 185 USD for a PR3!!! And what if I change the content to my nutritional supplements theme? I suppose this domain has a lot of junk backlinks (considering this industry)??
    Where can I find somewhat related or at least neutral domains to buy?

  150. Jake
    April 17, 2013

    I have a quick question:

    When buying high PR domain names for the purposes of ranking, Is it worthwhile to set up 301 redirects for some of the inbound internal links?

    My thought here is that this will pass the juice on indefinitely.

    Thanks for all the great information provided here on Source Wave!

  151. April 19, 2013

    Totally agree with everything that – Except for the EMD part. I have been killing it with EMD’s for a long time.. even after the EMD update, but with a major strategic change in how I carry it out. I just ranked a brand new .org EMD yesterday on the 1st page in less than 24 hours. But yes, you are totally right, the cowboy days of that are over for the most part.

    Great info Becker.

    Best,

    Josh S.

  152. April 25, 2013

    Hi Becker
    Great post.
    I’m aiming at providing SEO services for local businesses.
    If I was to buy .com domains, would that be appropriate to change all content on that site to different language, to target it locally?
    How significant would it be?
    Many thanks,
    Keep rocking!

    April 27, 2013

    Becker, I’ve bought a PR3 dropped domain which has a healthy looking backlinks profile (according to ahrefs.com), but it HAS BEEN DETECTED as having FAKE PR. However, the owner simply changed the DNS of the domain to point to her new WP blog.

    When I found this out, I tought it cant be PR manipulation, right? The site is: http://laultimareina.com

    I got it for $5 from Godaddy xD please tell me it’s a catch, and not a mistake! :(

  154. April 29, 2013

    Nice read. Didn’t think that PR5 sites would cost $150 – 200 a pop.

  155. Jeff
    May 1, 2013

    Valerie’s question was not answered. I tend to agree with her, if you replace the original content with new ‘relevant’ content, don’t you destroy the link profile that got the original page rank to begin with? In this light this doesn’t seem like such a good investment does it?

  156. May 1, 2013

    I am trying to create an authority site and rank the pages. Not just a single EMD site and just rank for one keyword.
    My question is how does that work with the PR backlink sites. If I was to buy 3 PR-3 sites to start off with. I can’t just have a link going from the PR sites to every page I want to rank for on my authority site. Will the link juice travel from the home page of my authority site to all the other pages on the site? If that even makes sense.

    Would love to hear from anyone or if they know a good post on this site that will help me. I’m trying to catch up reading what i’ve missed the last couple months!

    Cheers

    Does ‘retheming’ a site make is lose PR?

    So if I buy a general sounding domain, but the previous site was Jewerly…and now I ‘retheme’ it to Shoes, would it lose some PR as a result or be less effective?

    Do you know of any hardcore testing that has been done on this retheming issue?

    Thanks man love your stuff!

    Each increase in PR is worth 10X the previous one; ie. 1 PR3 = 10 x a PR2, etc.

    Ed eh?

    Hey Becker as always great FREE stuff. I am following you as from your very beginning so cheers for both.. :)

    I was looking at your previous post where you talk about your favorite backlinking tools (http://source-wave.com/seo-tools-tutorials/ ) and i saw that with Ultimate Daemon you build wiki backlinks pointing directly to the money site + to the the 2-3 tier backlinks.

    At the moment writing this, i’ve readed that creating wiki links that point directly to your money site will do something bad. How do you feel about this one.

    Another thing, I saw you SILOED website and damn you did that right.. ;). Hign Pr on almoust every page there…heheh, nice, nice, that is the SILO power.. :).
    At the moment i have website about kw with medium competition and 10 000+ exact searches, sitting on page 3.

    The website have couple of backlinks using Pat’s backlink strategy. The website have few article directories posting and 4-5 web 2.0′s backlinks also siloed and already on page 3, #1. Some people as Pat him self say that the strategy do not work which is not true. Every backlinking strategy works perfect if you know how to do it.

    I thing creating such siloed backlinks and using this blog network strategy will give nasty ranking power.. :). Of course anchor text variation still plays.

    PS. Do you remember when i’ve asked you to check for me a keyword from your place/IP and tell me it’s ranking? Check again, see in your facebook conversation about what i am talking and write me if you want to see how i am able to rank a product name website for all its keywords on page one. That’s what siloing your website can do, but siloing as google want’s and already precalculated not as people want.

    Now the problem still is having backlinks if you want to rank it quickly, just siloing takes time.

    Goran, Macedonia

    The biggest problem I have with high PR networks is the very fact that Google gets registration info for all domains. In other words, they are a registrant. So, how can you possibly hide a network from Google? Privately registering domain names will not hide any network from Google. They know exactly who registers each domain since they are registrants. Their algos are getting better and better. I know this may work for now (especially smaller networks) but it’s days of effectiveness may be numbered just like all the other link schemes. Just a thought.

  166. May 7, 2013

    Great information, Becker. Do you think that PR 3 level domains come that cheap? I don’t think so. But, overall a great post.

    Hi,

    I found really interesting. But I have some doubts.
    Can I build my own blog network with new domains?
    For example, my site domain is factorquemagrasa.com.mx
    if I buy .mx domains would it works to rank mi site in google.com.mx?

    Thanks for your help.

    May 7, 2013

    I totally get that you cannot use a linking service that is actively promoting it’s business in forums and what not. Makes sense. Having said that could someone give me a few tips on just how to find these private networks that you can buy high PR links from.

    I had a company call me today (first page publishing) or something that told me for $2,700 they would spend 40 hours a month getting me 12 back-links. I laughed and hung up on him. My point here is that most people will just search google and if avoiding paid link services that are highly visible is the protocol then I don’t want to use Google to find them.

    Becker isn’t going to give up his sources and he shouldn’t be I want to do this the right way so any real suggestions or ideas other than ‘go do some searching’ would be highly valuable. Thx.

  171. May 7, 2013

    Found about about SourceWave and Alex about 3 weeks ago. Started digging into what is offered on Friday. Lots of good info that I wish I would have found earlier.

    I got into all of this after entering into Network Marketing version of affiliate marketing. Free training is offered by the elites who have also joined. Eventually ended up getting “sold” on many of the “tools” that are out there while not even knowing what panda or penquin was. Fortunately I did not buy many of those tools but did buy WP Syndicator 2.6 and one named after a Monkee.

    Before finding this site I was becoming wise to how SEO works and learning of the panda and penguin stuff that I still do not fully understand but it is evident to me that many of those tools that are still being sold can hurt more than help.

    So now I gotta start fresh at developing a process that is safe and solid to use.

    One note: I loaded SeoQuake and used it the other day for keyword research and eventually got warnings from Google that “unusual activity was detected from my computer network”. Had to keep entering capta to go past page one on any search. Immediately did research to see that Google is banning any use of non google keyword research tools if detected.

    Comments or thoughts on this would be appreciated.

  172. May 8, 2013

    Hey Becker, thought i would chime in here and ask a pertenant question regarding the pr of a site. I have recently got my hands on some pr5+ sites and some with backlinks that i can use and one with no links whatsover but an expetionally clean history. I am wondering if using that site as a type of news portal which i belive it was before and keep content rlevancy high. Is it fair to say the pr should stick.

    Great article as always. I was wondering what sort of Citation and Trust flow you look at when you look at a domain?

    Video funny? A kid throwing himself on the floor and smashing bottles of milk NO sorry

  175. May 8, 2013

    Hi Becker

    Sorry about the last comment just reread the article and see you are saying 10 + is ok.

  176. May 9, 2013

    Hi,

    I have a couple of questions regarding PR domains.

    - Which page contains the video where you show how you use PR Powershot to find the best domains?

    - Is it better to buy and expiring domain or bid for a domain?

    Thanks,

  177. May 11, 2013

    Everything is very open with a very clear clarification of the issues.
    It was truly informative. Your website is extremely helpful.
    Many thanks for sharing!

  178. May 13, 2013

    Hey Alex
    For hosting with seo host, it should be dedcated IP hosting not shared, right?

    or what do you recommend?

  179. Alex
    May 13, 2013

    How would you use an PR 5 domain for an authority site if you want to get as much out of your High PR domain as possible? I’m looking to rank the homepage as well as some inner pages for some competetive high search volume keywords.

    1 article with 3 links in it? (pointing to 1 url)

    3 articles with 3 links in each? (pointing to a total of 3 urls)

    1 long article with 10 links in it? (pointing to a total of 3 urls)

    And the domain is obviously expensive so I want to make sure that I get every penny worth.

  180. Fernando
    May 14, 2013

    Great article thanks for sharing. One question thought. I am from The Netherlands and does it make sense for me to buy .com/net/org high PR domains – which were previously written in English and have an English domain name- to put other content on it in DUTCH and linking it to my DUTCH money website?
    Does Google not see this as weird? English websites linking to a dutch written website?

    Most apreciate your thoughts on this one.

  183. May 19, 2013

    Point was you still need links to rank, there’s no such thing as a non- SEO site on the first page of Google anymore… Well a couple very long tail or obscure niches, but for anything worth money generally not.

  184. May 21, 2013

    This is a fantastic strategy. This by itself is a viable business model by itself. Pairing this with a link building solution & anything else is VALUE heaven!

  185. May 24, 2013

    Besker,
    When doing a blog network, or something closely related, should we try and hide the who is it info, guess that is what it is called. (Actually can it be hidden)
    Does google use that info to track blogs ergo discovering our network?

    Hi Becker

    Great info and it’s finally prompted me to look at building my own network. I’m on a budget so will be starting small to begin with and I had a couple questions if that’s okay?

    1 – if you had more than one money site in the same niche, and let’s say that these money sites were on the same IP, I’m assuming that you wouldn’t want to link to both sites from the same PR sites as this would create a footprint that Google could find?

    2 – if you had totally different money sites, on totally different hosting and IPs, I take it there’s no reason why you couldn’t add more than one PR site to each of your C class IPs, as long as you kept all the linking completely separate? So if you have SEO hosting with 5 IPs, you could add one PR site onto each IP for your/a client’s weight loss money site, and then you could also add a second PR site onto each IP for your/a client’s totally different dog training money site?

    Hope that makes sense and thanks for all the great info.

    Matt

    May 27, 2013

    Hey Alex,

    You haven’t addressed Valerie’s question yet. She makes a valid point. How do you deal with the rapid loss of PR on a site after you have changed the link profile? Do you just keep buying new ones and adding the same links to balance out the loss of PR on the older ones? Would that be the same approach you would use on a high PR link service as well?

  189. jojo

  190. May 28, 2013

    Becker,

    Great article. Very informable and helped me a lot with knowing the science behind how it works. I also wanted to ADD that after buying the domain name, be careful to check the back links going to sub pages of the domain. When you get the new domain the old content will not be there and Google will see 404 pages. So any sub pages with back links to them put 301 redirects on them and point them to the home page. This will keep the linking structure and also maintain the PR that your root is getting credit for.

    .: cheers :.

  191. May 28, 2013

    Yes SEO these days has become SO easy that I now rank sites just by visualizing the keywords I want to rank for!

    Btw, this guy : http://www.0hemorrhoids.com is making it even easier ;) See him #10 for hemorrhoids and #1 or #2 for hemorrhoids treatment.

    TREMENDOUS VALUE!!!!

    Thanks a lot.

  193. May 28, 2013

    Unless it’s already been said – people need to be extremely careful buying up used domains nowadays. A lot of blog networks have been hit, and a lot of sites have been penalized – with people offloading their sites for pretty cheap on domain auction sites. Be sure to check archive.org to see if it was used as a blog network, as well as the quality of the backlinks. You can tell right off if the domain was used in some sort of tiered / PR pumper site by just checking the backlinks. I only buy websites / domains with 100% relevant, natural, and legitimate backlinks. Why?? Because there are literally thousands of them everywhere. There’s no reason to settle on a so-so domain when there’s a huge supply of wonderful domains, with very good backlinks and history.

    My favorite way of snapping up good domains is get a list of domains that are on page 2-3+ for the terms you’re going for. Search for websites that look a bit neglected and/or are non-monetized. If their not monetized and on page 2-3+ for a bunch of terms, chances are they’ll unload the domains for cheap. Not only can you repurpose them and use these for awesome and relevant backlinks, but you can rank them and get multiple positions on Google for pennies on the dollar.

    Just be careful with all the penalties going around. People are getting rid of and selling their penalized sites in the truck-loads – and unless you do some proper due-diligence, you could be left with a bag of crummy domains that will do more harm than good!

    even if you hide your whois info google can see it as google is a registrar. So the who “private” registration is good for your competitors but not google.

    If you’re building a blog network your best bet is registration a “fake” name with a real address (not yours) and real email (not gmail) that you can check and a real phone number that you get for $1 from twilo – that way it’s a fake registration info but you receive emails sent and you leave a message on the voice mail if you ever get called

    That is the best way to do it

  197. dan

    no. google does not care about alexa rating

  198. May 30, 2013

    Hi Beck,

    Great Info. However, just one question here, how can we tell a PR site has a healthy link profile?

    That video was WAY too funny, I had to comment before reading the rest. I guess it’s only the younger generation who find that kind of thing funny, I know most of my friends would like it.

  203. June 5, 2013

    OK, that video just made my day.

    I didn’t realize it was the same guy and he was doing it on purpose until about half way in and then I just bust a gut. It got more outrageous each time.

    Thanks for getting me out of a funky mood. Now, on to more SEO-learnin’.

    You tell a good backlink profile is PR 3 – 100+ links, Pr 4 – 800+ links and Pr 5 – 1500+ links.

    Are these backlinks from google source backlinks or majestic backlinks data ? I’m asking this because I see a lot of difference between these metrics …

    Just discovered this site .. I’m very impressed for the quality of the info here !

    thanks a million

    Love the info!! I have some questions…If I have one client who wants to rank for 10 keywords do I just put the one link on the main home page of each blog and that’s it?…or, do I need to do a new post to each blog once a month with the keywords….so on-going posting on the blog network with the keywords or one time on the home page for each keyword (footer, sidebar, article, image, etc)?

    Also, regarding PR maintenance, do I NEED to post content to each blog network weekly or monthly to keep the PR up….so if Im at PR3 I dont want to drop to PR2 so to ensure this does not happen what should I do? I can auto blog or schedule medium content to be posted if needed or course. Also, is content curation acceptable to keep PR (or PLR…spun articles, etc)?

    Thanks for the help!!!!

  206. June 9, 2013

    Hello Alex and everybody,

    First, thanks a lot for all these information and guides, very useful…

    Wanted to ask a question to you (or others who can have an answer :) : How many sites do you assign to a unique IP Class when speaking about SEO Hosting ?

    Do you think we have to assign a unique IP for every PR site ? Or Maybe several which are not related (for example 2 PR sites for 2 different niche sites on a unique IP) ?

    I would say that second solution is possible but I would like to know your idea about it.

    Thanks everybody for your help, and sorry for my poor english…

  207. June 19, 2013

    Maintaining the PR is going to be the key.

    @Richard Thompson has mentioned a great tip but would love to hear from Becker too.

    I lately found a PR2 site with a number of Edu and Gov links. Alexa rank, nice Majestic Citation and Trust flow etc. but the site has about 2000 indexed pages according to majestic. So, the PR might take a blow once the number of indexed pages fall from 2000 to almost noting.

    But I guess that’s pretty much the scenario for all legit high PR domains that have just expired. It would be great if Becker could comment on how to address this issue.

  208. June 22, 2013

    Becker, I have been using your link strategies and I have steadily increased my ranking for my keywords from bottom first page (just based on keyword research) to #1 and #2 for multiple keywords per site. Great Info. As I get a little bigger I will work to get into more of your advanced classes!

  209. June 24, 2013

    Hi Becker,

    I’ve only just discovered you & this amazing website full of information! So glad I have :)

    Just a quick question – what are your thoughts on getting a high pr link from a gig on Fiverr?

    Thanks…off to read the rest of your website now!

  210. June 29, 2013

    Dude, epic stuff! Yes, a lot of thought goes into this… ALWAYS research the domains you are buying and make sure they have not been used and abused by spammers. It’s VERY important you do your homework (backlinks, archives, whois.domaintools, drops, etc) before you buy anything.

    * Will they keep their PR on the next update? If the backlinks are solid and you have 301 redirected the indexed pages, you should be good regardless if the content is new/different/fresh.

    Was lucky enough to survive the last PR update, pretty much everything stayed intact.

    I use about 10 different hosts and registrars to host my 100+ network (hard to find footprint).

    Becker knows his stuff, just look at his sites in the serps – proof he practices what he preaches and it WORKS.

    Ranking multiple #1′s for 15k+ exact search terms with a few videos and pages – unreal! I’m stealing that!!

    Hello Becker,

    Could you please clarify something.

    Lets say your moneysite is http://www.moneysite.com and you buy 3 PR2 domains and you host them on seohost.

    Do you have to host each of the PR2 Domains on a seperate C Class ip or you can have like 3-5 of the high pr domains on the same ip that are backlinking to the same moneysite?

    I will be waiting for your response.

    Thank you very much.

  213. Andy V
    June 29, 2013

    Hay, Alex

    Love the stuff awesome material. Have a quick question about the seo hosting. . .

    Hi Alex, man you have great stuff in here, but i have a question about youtube,

    can you apply this to videos for ranking them higher, i mean if i point 3 PR5 links to a video

    would the affect be the same as a website?

  216. Herman
    June 30, 2013

    “Then i post spun but readable articles to all of them. Link to my money site through images, place youtube videos on them etc. I have software to do this.”

    Could you share with us what software do you use for this?

  217. Donna
    July 2, 2013

    I have bought your courses and love them. I have just acquired Register Compass as I want to buy a domain. BUT…everyone that I look at says that is it already registered. So, I must be missing a step on “how to buy”. Do I go to GoDaddy and put the domain name on reserve somewhere?

    Sorry to be so daft. I have found a couple that I want to buy, but I just can’t figure out where to place the order/bid. Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

  218. July 2, 2013

    Hey Lucky, I think that is why Becker suggests that you build an authority site. By that I mean pick a broad niche keyword that is your main keyword you would eventually like to rank for, and then pick lower competition keywords to rank for short term. When you follow Becker’s blueprint, this will cause all of those less competitive keywords to rank along with your authority site passively. Hit the top keyword with the link and the juice goes to the entire site.

  219. Rick
    July 2, 2013

    Hey Becker
    I missed out on “Auto pilot” due to time zone cock up lol.

    I have a question regarding Majestic SEO use. Do you only use the Fresh Data or do you use the historic Data? Specifically on domains that are pending release or in expiring mode.

  220. Bob
    July 4, 2013

    I find the video a bit optimistic and simplistic. It’s just not that easy to do what he is describing to make 3k in 60 days. There are tons of small details that will derail you if you are not aware of them and buying PR domains and getting them to retain their PR after
    you’ve changed out the content is hard to do.

    I’m not saying this can’t be done, but it’s not as simple and easy as it is portrayed.

  221. July 4, 2013

    I’m just going over this info for the first time. I was thinking of building several local PR networks and selling the links but before I do I was wondering if you would respond to Valerie’s statement because I was wondering the same thing.

    if I buy a PR3 and I change the on page content to say sedation dentists or emergency roof repair wouldn’t I eventually loose some or all of the PR over time?

  222. James Ng
    July 5, 2013

    Great! Let link it to competitor’s site and report to Google and let Google penalty your competitors! hahahaa

  223. July 6, 2013

    Hey Becker,

    Awesome article, i’ve signed up to freshdot and have been monitoring domains based on your criteria for awhile now. I am not sure if i’m doing it wrong as most of the PR3 domains are costing more than $100 each.

    Am i looking at the wrong spot or is that the average price now for a PR3?

    Also, saw a comment in this article, what are your thoughts on whether the PR will stay the same after purchase if content of the website differs? Do you know roughly how long the PR will last before it stop dropping?

    Regards,
    JL

    I bought a PR site and I made money site and made links from the PR site to the money site, both sites are submitted and crawled. But after 1 week google still haven’t recognized the links to the money site. Does anyone have the same problem and do you know how to speed up the process?

    July 9, 2013

    My question exactly! I was reading through to see if anyone else had asked.

    Also, it says 10 max to keep it juice-y, but right below that it says if you’re selling links under 80 links, 100 max. I’m confused about that part,

    What do you say Becker?

  227. July 10, 2013

    You should use whois guard!

  228. July 12, 2013

    I wouldn’t mind getting an answer to this as well. I have recently purchased my first pr domain and it is a pr5. I’m wondering whether i should duplicate the content that was previously on the website or build new content. I’d prefer to build new content but if its going to cost me my pr ranking I only have one option really.

  229. July 13, 2013

    Hey Becker.

    Love your stuff, man!

    I’m a bit puzzled, though. I bought your SEO Omega course about 3 weeks ago, and in one of the video modules, you map out the strategy of buying a PR 5 domain, then selling links on that domain to recoup your costs for buying the site, and also to make money on an ongoing basis.

    However, in the article above, you say that this is a good way to get penalized by google.

    So which is it? I’d been scouting PR 4 and 5 domains since watching that video module, but now I’m torn on whether or not this is a viable strategy.

    I’d love to hear your thoughts on it.

  230. July 14, 2013

    Hi Becker,

    I am one of your The500klifestyle member.

    May I know the link that we are selling for example the $99 The Lazy Ace to agency.

    This product can rank one domain for agency’s client website.

    If Agency have 5 clients would like to rank for 5 domain, he purchase 5 X $99 The Lazy Ace from me.

    Do i need to build 5 blog domains?

    I am not understand the blog network how it works.

    In your blog post “Too Many Links = Bad

    Having too many links on your PR site will not totally ruin the power of your links, however for optimal results try to keep your outbound links under 10.

    If your running a link selling business, try to keep it under 80 and there will still be decent juice. After 100 your gonna start to see a huge decline in juice.”

    It means one Blog Network we can use for ranking about 80 clients domain?

    Thanks

  231. July 15, 2013

    Hi Becker,

    I think from my understanding … The $99 Lazy ACE can rank maximum 80 different clients websites.

    The $297 also can rank maximum 80 different clients websites. And this also rank medium hard keywords as well.

    The $497 also can rank maximum 80 different clients websites with very competitive keywords.

    Correct? [Yes/No]

    Thanks

    Hi Alex,

    going through all your videos and posts I havent yet quite grasp how you feel about “long tailed EMDs” so lets say you wanna rank for “watch bleach online” and the com/org/net are all taken. Do you then go to a long tail version of it like watchbleachonlinefree.com or not?

    Thanks for clearing that up.

    Sincerely, Buyseech

  233. July 16, 2013

    Hi Becker,

    I love this post man. I tripped across your content about 6 months ago and it has taken me to the next level.

    I have been using http://registrycompass.com/ to buy expired domains that already have page rank. It has worked wonders for me.

    Thanks again man!
    Brian

  234. July 17, 2013

    Good post Becker – Have tried all this before but always struggled to retain the PR value on the site I have purchased despite making sure all the links are sticky etc.
    I would say that within 3 months I have lost all PR value despite changing the meta tags, description etc as would normally be required when buying PR domains.

    Perhaps the fact I am purchasing from Digital Forum is the problem.

    Any tips.

    Hi, thanks for your article. But I have 2 questions I would like to get your opinion.

    Can I build some of my network sites on the same bluehost account as my money site?
    Can I build the network site on free hosting services like 000webhost.com?

    Cheers

    Yo Becks,

    If I have 1 amazon review site with say 50 reviews posts on, each post targeting a keyword and I can only have 10 outgoing links per PR site, that’s going to need a lot of PR sites…

    How would you combat this?

    Cheers

    Thanks

  238. Richard
    July 20, 2013

    I got an Amazon review site, so if I want to rank those pages (about 100 review pages) that is going to require a lot of PR sites right?

    10 in fact. Anyway around this?

  239. SpikedCollar
    July 29, 2013

    I’ve been looking into buying PR 5 domains. Where are these magical $150-200 PR 5 domains? I go to digital point and find them for that price – all of them are fake and absolutely rubbish. If you track them down via registers with expiring domains, bidding always goes up to $600+, usually $650+ for legitimate, high-quality PR 5 domains. PR 6 domains then go for $1000+, usually more.

  240. Jim
    July 30, 2013

    Hey Becker,

    First off THANKS so much for the information.

    I have a question about purchasing high PR domains. Does the TLD matter? Do you stick with .com .net & .org? And what about “foreign” domains? If you purchase a .eu domain for instance, and put links to USA sites, would Google see that as a red flag? If a domain was previously populated with Chinese characters, and you purchase the domain and replace the content with English, and link to a USA business – would that raise a red flag in Google’s eyes?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

  241. July 31, 2013

    Becker I have a question?

    When i have my pr domain is it safe to add text link ads to generate income or is this a bad idea for it being just a blog network?

  242. August 6, 2013

    Alex, you recommend above when checking the backlinks to try and stick with around 100+ links for PR3 and 800+ for PR4 etc

    Do you check referring domains too?

    Do you have any recommendations for a minimum amount of referring domains for the likes of PR2, 3, 4, 5 etc

    When checking at auctions there are many domains that fall within your guidelines, but many of them lack a decent amount of referring domains and that always puts me off bidding or buying as the links could easily be taken down at any time and I’d imagine that would lose quite a bit of juice…

    Or am I being too cautious?

  243. August 19, 2013

    Hi Becker,
    I have been studying SEO for a while and the info you provide is top rate with no BS. Thanks! I have a question- I found and checked a PR-5 website for purchase (mbaml.com). The checker said it was indeed a true PR5 site but it was only 1 year old and had 0 backlinks..how can that be?

  244. September 9, 2013

    @Dwight: Probably a 301 redirect. I wouldn’t buy that site. Also, the game has apparently changed. Please check out Becker’s State of the SREPs vids. Hopefully he’ll update this page soon with the new information….

  245. Don Bosco
    September 9, 2013

    Hello, Becker;

    I have a question.

    You mentioned in the new Star Wars video that G can identify PBNs via hosting — even if the PBN sites have different C class IPs and private nameservers.

    What method of hosting do you recommend for PBNs and money sites to prevent server identification by G?

    Thanks!

  246. Rich
    September 9, 2013

    I think it is now best to buy 1 years hosting per each new domain. I would guess it is probably better to have each domain at a different host. at least have like 5 at one hosting company 5 at another something like this. Dunno if it matters to much.

    maybe becker can clarify this?

  247. Don Bosco
    September 9, 2013

    I took another look at the “grey hat” video in which Becker discusses this.

    I believe he is saying that it is OK to use SEO Hosting, et al, for your PBNs, but that money sites should be hosted elsewhere.

    However, I am far from certain that is what he meant.

    The first time I watched it, I got the impression that each PBN site must be hosted separately as well as the money sites.

    Hopefully, we’ll get clarification on this.

    Thanks, Rich.

  248. Thomas
    September 10, 2013

    All your sites need to be on different hosts, especially the PBN sites (aka not SEO host)

  253. Oliver
    September 11, 2013

    Does it also matter for “domain center services” such as Godaddy or Namecheap or the like, where you could redirect each domain to your actual hosting server. Is it wise to transfer each domains separately then to the different hosts? Or is it okay to let them all together at Godaddy or Namecheap?

  254. September 13, 2013

    First thank you fo you very usefull Omega Guide.:-)
    I have stat my own blog network with 11 doamins Frome PR 1 – PR 4.
    I have a question that goes like this: If e.g. Now I am trying to rank a niche site about “dog obedience training” so my content on my blog network relate to “dog obedience training” Now I want to rank a new niche site about “weight loss” can I do that on the same blog network ? If yes what do I do ? “build new web 2.0 an soo one ?

    I have only used 4 host for my 11 domains will that do or is it to risky ?

    Hi becker, I’ve had an issue where I purchased a pr 5 site and google wont index it. I even made it look like the old site and did a reconsideration request. Moving forward should I not put these sites on my webmaster, analytics or adsense accounts.

    What sucks is this site i bought there are still people creating quality links for it but it’s not getting indexed.

    Hey Alex,

    What would be the best way to rank for about 100-200 different but related long tail keywords using this high PR network technique? Is it better to link to the home page of the money site or to the internal pages targeting specific long tail keywords?

    So far I’m having good success by linking directly to internal pages, but I’m wondering how effective it can be to link to the home page and this will affect internal page’s rankings if at all?

    Thanks!

    Google has not update their page rank in over 6 months… stop looking at the obvious. Check the moz trust and rank of these websites then do basic majestic seo on it…if you see that the moz trust and rank is above a 4 it is a great website especially if it has a ton of backlinks that are good quality. You can buy these so called “Pr 0′s and 1′s” but are really 4′s and 5′s for a great bargain because google has not update their Page ranks.

  260. Kevin
    September 23, 2013

    I suggest using just American Websites the reason being…is that it would look weird that some random chinese, EU or whatever website is all of a sudden doing american business. Plus if you are going to sell links to other SEO companies they want american, not some foreign shit. And i personally prefer .com because they rule to internet…but in all honestly if it has a good PR, and a solid backlink foundation it does not matter.

    You are using your PR network to boost your “money website,” hence why it is called your money website. Your PR network is simply used for boosting the “money website.” So no, unless you are trying to rank your PR network websites which I find is silly since you are using them to rank other websites.

  263. Kevin
    September 23, 2013

    Did you research the backlink profile, moz trust and rank?
    If you didn’t you may have made a fatal error. You always have to analyze those stats, because if you blindly march into the field you will probably get destroyed. I suggest next time with buying a PR website to always look up the backlink profile, make sure the moz trust and rank is over 4 and you should be good to go.

    Quick question: You recommend seohost here, however I noticed in your “State Of The SERPS” videos you are now saying don’t use them because even with different c-class ips the effects won’t be as good.

    So what is the solution?

    Thanks,

    hey becker, cool as hell stuff as usual. im ignoring all other seo forums and sticking with your site. one question: do i need to buy relevant domains if im pushing a music site could i buy babygifts.com if it was pr 5. and put music content on the site. u see my point or do i have to look for domains only relevant to music, etc. i need a reply b4 i kick this off. thks in advance a loyal reader

    Putting your sites on different hosting :P

  268. September 27, 2013

    Becker,
    Awesome post as usual!!!!!

    So all this talk about different IP’s and different hosting providers. In all your videos about this you say things like “you can go out and find hosting for 2 bucks everywhere.” I have searched google high and low and all I can find is $5 and above if I pay for a year in advance. I don’t mind paying for 10 site hostings for a year at $24/year, but 10 site hostings for $50/year is a big difference for me right now.

    I am just starting to set up my network and just getting started. I understand that having 5 sites at $2/month is only $10/month for my network for 1 money site. When you start getting into $5/month a piece, this can get pricey real quick.

    For Example:

    point 3 pr links from different pr sites at a youtube video – pr site 1,2, & 3
    point 3 pr links at a site homepage – pr site 4, 5, and 6
    point 3 more pr links at a site homepage – pr site 7, 8, 9

    So just for that one site and youtube video for the site at $5/month, you are talking $45/month?

    Is this right or would you do it this way…

    point 1 pr link to youtube vid – pr site 1
    point 2 pr links to money site homepage – pr site 1

    point 1 pr link to youtube vid – pr site 2
    point 2 pr links to money site homepage – pr site 2

    point 1 pr link to youtube vid – pr site 3
    point 2 pr links to money site homepage – pr site 3

    This method would be like $15/month.

    I know you are going to say I am over-complicating this, but I am just getting started, don’t have clients yet, and money is a huge concern at the moment until I get at least 1 client.

    Thanks in advance for any info.

    Awesome articles, I am already reading back and forth, tfel and right for a few times. On the topic SEO, truly the best resource, THANKS a 7,895,589 times.

    Now but comes my confusion and I am sure you can educate my ignorance so even I get it 100%.

    I own a website with;
    873 external back-links
    19 referring domains
    15 referring IPs
    15 referring sub-nets
    19 citation flow
    12 trust flow

    and yet, my PR is only 1.

    What am I missing here?

    Hi Becker,

    Thanks great info, I’m blown away by what I’ve learned from the State of the SERPS and the SEO Omega course, straight sh..! Infinitum is next

    In your “State of the Serps!” Grey Hat video you mention picking up sites based on their Moz Domain Authority score. You mentioned free software that would filter for Moz Authority but didn’t say what it was? Do you remember what it was?

    Also you mentioned Register Compass and PR Powershot. It looks like PR Powershot ranks by PR?

    I’m not sure if Register Compass filters by Moz Authority, I didn’t see anything about that in their product description??

    Can you give some more details about how you filter for MOZ Authority. If there’s a free way, that’s better.

    Thanks again,

    Jim M

    Hey!

    What if I want to use this method of purchasing high PR domains and I only have a single money site? Its doing pretty damn well at the moment and its gaining pretty decent exposure on social media and in Google.

    However, lets say I go out and purchase a PR2 domain and make it relevant. Should I only build 3 links from the domain to my article I write? In other words, its going to cost me (at minimum) about $15 ($5 per website, if I am very lucky) to build 9 links to the article I write and then thats it? If I had a number of websites in this niche then I could justify it.

    Whats your suggestion if you have a single money site and want to use this method?

    Thanks!

  273. October 12, 2013

    Hey Becker, Any thoughts on the importance of DIGIlink Doctor? I bought PR powershot and they keep pushing that product. Cheers!

  274. October 13, 2013

    Talking about blog networks, Links from Social Monkees are blog networks too? Most of them looks Spammy and no PR.

    Do you recommend us to use that Alex?

    Most of the seo companies on the first page of google in the uk use this method, but after 3 to 4 weeks google catches up with them, the next thing they have disappeared. is it because they use spamy links instead of a private network.

    Hey Becker, I have a doosy of a question. I have a client with a 12 year old domain and I’ve been doing paid search for them very successfully for 4 years. About 2 years ago I thought I’d be smart and do some SEO for them but I have to admit I was an idiot, had no idea what I was doing, and I did some of that cheap auto link stuff thinking I’d be helping them. Well it did help for a while but now I think it’s hurting. There are thousands of overly optimised links now going deep – and I’ve been tracking their site + some videos I did for them, and I just saw a video which was once No 1 on their best keyword slide out of the top 100 results (gulp). Their site organic was no 1 on this keyword once too and now it’s down to No 10 on that same keyword (just slide 2 last wk on back of video linking back to them sliding out of top 100). I’m worried. I can’t get autolink links to automated blogs taken down since its all bots! What can I do? I have another domain name for them with country domain (their site is currently a .com), do I need to scrap their site and start again? Feel’in pretty bad about this any advice would be much appreciated.

  278. October 19, 2013

    Hi Becker,
    Thanks a lot for all of this stuff its great!
    Is this not the exact “formula” set out in your seo omega product or am i confused?

    Hi Becker,
    So are you saying SEO Omega is the updated “version” of the “concepts” discussed in the post? Sorry for all the quesitons but I am just trying to orientate myself a bit.
    Regards,

  281. October 21, 2013

    Hi Becker,

    I have been reading a few of your articles and have a simple question which I have not seen covered. I want to create 1x private blog network to service all my clients websites on a variety of non-related services. Can I create say 5 x PR blogs and then with every client site I create publish 5 x articles and repeat with each client site I then create?

    The problem I envisage is that I will have 5 x PR sites linking to the same (say 15-20) client websites which seems to me to shout out that it is a network and surely it would be penalised? Do you think this would work or do you really have to create a new network for each website?

    Many thanks – hope that is clear!

  282. October 23, 2013

    Hey Becker,

    Another great post, thank you so much!

    One other thing I check when buying a domain is I go to archive.org so I can see if they have any old pages indexed, just to see if I can see what *was* on the site years ago. Sometimes it may be a huge disconnect so I found it good to add to the checklist.

    Thanks for all your info, I am working through all your training, videos, etc.

    Best,

    -Martin

  283. October 23, 2013

    Becker,

    As usual, that was pure value, a core positioning difference you have created for yourself there, Sir!

    There is just one thing I would want some light on. I just got a PR 6 blog done as suggested by you and I have started adding niche content to it. For a keyword which has medium competition, how much time do you think would it make for me to see a rank jump through 3-4 backlinks from the PR-6 site?

    The top 10 rankings are currently held by brands but their pages relevant to the particular keyword in question have no backlinks. They have ranked only on brand authority.

    Thanks,

    Bhavya

    Hi Becker,

    In your introduction to the Omega guide you say:

    ” First off if your brand new to SEO, this will not make sense to you..Go read our free beginners course.”

    There are references to the beginners course all over your website but it no longer exists! What is a newbie suppose to do?

    Regards,

    Hello Becker,
    I am eager to know, do you register the purchased expired domains in google webmaster tools? If yes, then registering all of them under 1 account does leave a huge footprint. What do you think? Shall I register the blog network in GWT?

    Hey Alex I have a Quick Question.

    When i look at the Links on Majestic Seo Do i want High Referring
    Domains? Or Alot of External Backlinks? Which? Thank you

    Here is my criteria for PR domains. Feel totally free to break this, as I do all the time. These are simply my best practices to be 100% safe

    PR 3 – 100+ links

    Pr 4 – 800+ links

    Pr 5 – 1500+ links

  287. November 4, 2013

    Does the blog network site have to be a .com? I’m thinking that this wouldn’t be necessary.
    Also, is there any way to get a notice that you’ve been outbid on the domain, like when dealing with GoDaddy Auctions?

  288. Rhonda
    November 22, 2013

    Hey Alex I have a Quick Question.

    You mention “Do Not Publicly Sell Links” What is the better way of selling links if I have a PR5 website..?

  289. November 26, 2013

    Hey Becker! Always love the info. you put out. I am always anxiously waiting for the next email. I just have one question. Is it my imagination or are expiring domains starting to get just a little expensive these days. I use prpowershot and picked up some domain names pretty cheap around 6 months ago for my network. Now I am using the same service and some of the asking prices are absolutely ridiculous. Your thoughts?

  290. December 10, 2013

    Hey Becker:

    I stumbled on your site about a week or so ago and I haven’t been able to stop watching your videos. I just wanted to say thank you for the awesome information!

    In regards to managing several pr sites, I know that they should all be on different hosts, but can these sites all be managed from one WordPress account and still be safe from Google’s penalties?

    Finally, just as an example so I am understanding this correct: say I wanted to provide SEO services for lawyers in Cleveland. Would the best way to make their sites rank higher be through my pr network of several pr2-3 sites, all relevant to lawyers?

    Thank you,
    Greg L

  293. December 17, 2013

    Do the money sites also have to be on different IPs?

    Great article. Finally a good blog network post worth reading. Spent a few hours on your site now watching videos. Thanks.

    We are in the midst of setting up a multi site for bloggers to sell our concept. The Domain name is blognetwork he he. Multi site – all on one wordpress install. How does it affect page rankings and individual backlinks? Whats Googles take on Multi Sites?

  295. January 3, 2014

    Hey Becker. Thanks for this great blog post, im a student of source wave and i know this stuff works, i tested a site now just as you mentioned and my new site jumped from 0 to 3rd page in 2 day just with only 2 pr4 backlinks i bought.

    My question is, if i buy a pr 5 domain and make it relevant. what about the site content that was indexed before? when a visitor hit does links they will reflect 404 page not found and i think this is what is killing the pr of the sites after some months of making it relevant.

    Please, is there any plugin to redirect does previous indexed pages and post to your home page instead of showing page not found? Pls help…

    N:B
    —-
    One of ur empty site you use for demo is now pr4, dont forget to keep an eye on it…

  296. January 10, 2014

    hi becker,
    just wanted to check with you: i have bought to pr3 domains on godaddy auction & want to now sign up for seo hosting. Do actually have to transfer the domains form godaddy to the seo host or can i just leave them there and “point” them to the seo host – what would you suggest?
    Thanks in advance,
    regards
    Stephen

  297. Malablues

    Have you tried the Redirection plugin?

  298. January 15, 2014

    there is a wordpress plugin called 404 redirection that redirects all 404′s to the home page to salvage the link juice

  299. January 16, 2014

    I think Becker said that sites with a huge amount of backlinks get to keep their PR update after update. I might be wrong though, but there was a note of that somewhere.

  300. dermarokkanah
    January 24, 2014

    I have exactly the same question on how to keep the PR after buying a domain, setting it up and filling it with relevant content, but Alex doesn’t seem to be willing to answer that one unfortunately despite the numerous folks asking about it ;(

  301. January 24, 2014

    Great tips to start a high PR network. just bought couple of products from Source-Wave so spending some time researching the techniques for best results.

    hello Becker,

    Is something wrong if we buy domains, are from other countries or languages​​?

    regards

  303. February 2, 2014

    Becker,

    Valerie’s question on March 4 was not completely answered in my mind. Do you recommend

    1. checking archive.org for backlink profiles,
    2. adding new web pages/links for the most abundant past backlinks, and
    3. doing a 301 redirect for for pages that seemed somewhat important enough so as to not end in a 404?

    These steps were alluded to by other posts, but not reflected upon by you.

    I have bought PR3 and PR4 domains for a network and want to protect their page rank.

    Are there any more steps that can be taken, and/or are all 3 of these steps necessary?

    Thanks, Robert

  304. February 8, 2014

    After watching this video I went and bought 20 PR 4-7 pages, and changed them all to local market content. These where all super high quality trust and flow sites with great link profiles.

    After 6 months I now have 7 PR 2-5 pages, and the other 13 are 1 or 0 PR. The ones that are least related dropped the fastest, and the ones vaguely related in content are staying for now.

    It wasn’t a very good investment now that most of the sites have 200,000 backlinks and PR 0, they are just waiting to expire on my domain host.

    The site I pointed most of these to did go from PR 0 to PR 4 in that time, but the entire network decays fast, so make the most of it quickly, and don’t use this as a long term strategy.

  305. February 13, 2014

    Confused because I see people saying “buy a PR site and MAKE it relevant”. If you buy a PR site and then change the content, etc. won’t it lose it’s PR? Example, if I buy a high PR site focused on Goonies, and I then change the title and all content to focus on Chiropractors………… does it retain it’s PR status?

  306. February 15, 2014

    You show some tips about high PR site . It’s best.

    Thanks

  307. February 16, 2014

    I agree with Valerie even if it took 8 months to build up pr with your own domains it would be worth it.

    stevepmd

  308. February 17, 2014

    Awesome guide, but there are many questions left unanswered. I have been trying to find some cheap and reliable hosting for the different network sites and have come across this page if anyone else is in the same boat.

    http://pbnhosting.com

  309. February 26, 2014

    Well I did an experiment like this to.
    I bought a domain name that had pr 3 and change the content. But after 6 months it became pr 0.
    I think even if you buy a domain name and you change the content you will lose the pr.
    Your content need’s to be the same and eventually add more content to it and get rankings on your new content.

  310. Becker
    February 26, 2014

    No it doesnt, the links needs to remain the same

  311. Bec
    February 28, 2014

    Hi Becker,

    When you wrote above that “No it doesn’t, the links needs to remain the same” in response to “Your content need’s to be the same and eventually add more content to it and get rankings on your new content”, do you mean the link pointing to the original site? As in the original backlink profile? Also, do most of the original page names need to stay the same?

    These may be dumb questions, but I would love clarification.

  312. March 11, 2014

    Hey Becker I was just curious, in this guide you stated not to sell the links publicly on forums but in the 100 dollars a day video you said to go to places like digital point and warrior forum to sell my links I just got a little confused and wanted a clearer understanding of this. Thanks

    I have a quick question in regard to link building. Is the rule of 3 still effective? Say I link a PR5 to three PR2s. Should I have three links coming from each of the three blogs to my money site?

    Also, should my PR2 sites be optimized for the keywords I’m trying to rank for?

  316. March 20, 2014

    Thank Becker,

    Hello Becker,

    Thank you for the cool post. I have a few long-standing doubts, if you could please help.

    Why are we not talking about DA here? I think DA is more precise measure of site’s quality than PR.

    Do the backlinks matter to make a site relevant to a specific niche? Or only the on-page content? In short, does only link juice matters, or relevant link juice? How I can call a site relevant to tech niche by changing its on-page, if it’s backlinks are not from tech blogs etc?

    Thanks.

    Hi,
    great artcicle. I have some casino related websites and i want to built some high quality links to them. However, i am not sure if it is better to built them High PR home page links or contexual links from a high PR network.

    I am not interested in PR,only in SERP. What is your opinion?

  322. April 3, 2014

    Hey Becker how are you sir? Quick Question, do you index pr links also or just wait until they are indexed naturally?

  323. Afonso
    April 13, 2014

    Man, if I hire a different host for each site that I have, I still run the risk of being on the same ip?

    Or the same IP is only for the same hosting?

  325. Shaddow
    April 27, 2014

    I’m not speaking for Becker but I think if you bought a high PR site that lost its value relatively quickly I think the PR might have been artificially inflated by spammed links or other methods. Link degradation is normal but if a high PR site is built on good solid links that have been in place for a long time I don’t think its going to lose PR value.

  326. May 1, 2014

    Hi Backer, Im very excited with this article and decided to build a network based on your guide. I do some researchs with Freshdrop, and find an interesting domain. Should I buy a France or India domain with pr=4 and Trust Flow >20?

  330. May 14, 2014

    The information the Becker gives away for free is priceless, but if you are going to reap the rewards you have to be willing to put in the time!

    When I started SEO in 2008 I spent at least eighteen hours per day to get my sites ranked well. In less than two years using methods quite similar to Beckers, I had one website making upwards of one hundred fifty thousands dollars… per month!

    Put the time in, knowledge is great, but only if applied.

    Can we rank website without Private blog network.
