The Omega SEO Link Strategy Guide (Pro Link Building Explained)

Hey guys Becker here,

Today I want to teach you somethings that has made me a lot of money

You see by listening to you I have noticed that I have made a big mistake This is assuming that everyone here simply knows how to build good backlinks. Funny enough I forgot how tough it was to get started making links

I would sit around making crappy ezine articles for hours (with no results) I would hear about “link pyramids”, “Buffer sites” and “link wheels” It all sounded very cool, but no one ever showed me how to get started

If only someone had put together a guide on all of this and explained in detail how to do it…

Well guess what I decided to do…



I am starting what I am calling the Omega SEO Guides. These guides will be EXTREMELY in depth guide explaining aspects of SEO

This is the first one and it is ALL about link strategies! Enjoy!


The Omega SEO Link Strategy Guide Of T-Rex Like Epicness

(Short Name: Omega T-Rex SEO Guide)

You laugh now but people will be searching for T-Rex SEO very soon


What This Guide Is

What I intend to do with this guide is write down every “advanced SEO strategy I have come across.I will then in great detail explain to exactly what this strategy is, why it works, and how to do it. (If you are TOTALLY new to SEO check out our beginners course here)

Why Do All This?

2 reasons…

A) This stuff confused the hell out of me when I first got started. People always say stuff like “link pyramid” but then never explain exactly what it is. This leaves you having to turn to resources like the Warrior Forum where every idiot is a self proclaimed SEO master and freely spews mis information like a drunk preacher.

Long story short : I want you to have a resource that is just easy and trustworthy


B) When you are buying links, there are a ton of vendors who go around throwing out these big SEO words. The funny thing is most of these vendors don’t even know what the hell they are talking about.

I want you to be able to know what you are buying and be able to spot winner and loser SEO services


 So Lets Get Started!

The first thing I want to cover is basic link building theories and terminologies. This way when I dive into more advanced stuff it will make sense


Link Building Theories and Principles




The Theory Of “Juice” Transferal

What It Is

Juice transfer is one of the main concepts you need to understand before you dig into any type of back linking strategy. Link pyramids, circles and everything in between use this method as one of the main ways to build link power.


How It Works

When a site links to a website it transfers “link juice” to that site. That in turn increases its rank in Google. However, not only does the link juice go to the initial site, it ALSO goes to all the site the initial site is linking to.

For example : 1000 links go to a website. That website then links to Source Wave. The power of those 1000 links is then transferred from the middle site to Source Wave

In short, if a site links to your site, you not only gain juice from the link, but you also gain juice from the links linking to that site

Make sense?


The Theory Of Buffer Sites

 What It Is

One question that I constantly wondered when I got into this was “Why the heck don’t people just send all of their links to their main site”

Well the reason is because Google hates this more than Justin Bieber fans hate death metal. If a site is brand new it makes absolutely zero sense for it to be getting thousands of links. This will almost always trigger a Google slap.

Remember the last theory though? The one about the “juice”? Well this is one of the most basic ways it is applied.

You see it makes perfect sense for thousands of links to be going to E-Zine articles. The site is massive and has millions of visitors. So we take advantage of this by creating a page with a link to our site on a larger “makes sense” site.

We then send tons of links to he larger sites page, thus safely transferring all the link juice to our site without triggering any Google alarms. Clever eh?



Link Strategies


Link Pyramid


What it is

A link pyramid…is a pyramid…of links…(Crazy Right?!)

But it is much more than that. It is a demonstration of one the cores of SEO. This is  the “juice transferal” we talked about earlier.


Why It Works

At first you might be thinking “Why not just send all your links to one site”

Well…the main reason is Google hates it…A lot. In fact sending a ton of links to your site to quickly will get your slapped faster than a dog that made a no-no in the house.

This is why instead of linking directly to your site, you instead build mass amount of links pointing to a bigger site that is linking  to your site. This way you gain all the “juice” without risking a red flag in Google.

But it gets deeper than that.

You can then build 1000 links to all of the links pointing at the bigger site. Mass links point to links that point to a big site that points to your site. This creates a “pyramid” like effect. (See I told you it was a pyramid of links..)


How To Do It

Step 1: Make a website (hopefully you have done that..if not check out the beginners course)

Step 2: Make a article/blog on a much larger site then link back to your site from it. Here are a few to get started WORDPRESS, E-ZINE ARTICLES, BLOGSPOT

Step 3: Create 200 links of any kind pointing to your page on these sites. The best links for this are wiki links, 2.0 links, and High PR Social Bookmarks (Can be purchased at Source Links)

Step 4: Create 1000 links pointing to the 200 links pointing to the pages. The best links for these are high pr comments, social bookmarks,wikis, and forum profile links,


My Favorite Pyramid For Post Penguin

I personally build a wordpress blog. I then build 70 2.0s sites using Senuke XCR. I then build 1000 wikis and 500 high PR comments that link to them.


Overall Effectiveness

Google is VERY aware of this strategy. This is why buying a couple of low quality Fiverr gigs is not the best idea. The “favorite” outline I listed above is what currently works extremely well for me.



Link Chains

What It Is

A link wheel…Is a circle (aka wheel) of links. Similar to a pyramid, it involves transferring link juice to pages to make them more powerful.


How It Works

Remember the powerful base links we made for the pyramid? Not only can we transfer the juice from mass links, we can also transfer the power of these bigger links to other big links.

What happens is everytime we create a page on a bigger site, we not only link to our site, but we also link to another big page we created on another site. The following big page ALSO links to our site, and then again links to another big site page. This can go on indefinitley

The end result is all these sites keep transferring link juice not only to your site, but the next big site. This transfer of link juice makes every link in the chain more powerful as the chain grows. For example if we did a chain of 50 sites, the links near the end of the chain would be extremely potent



It is very important to not close the chain. This will set off Google alarms and get your site pushed down a flight of stairs.

By closing the chain I mean linking the final or any sequential site to a site earlier in the chain. Only link forward, never backwards

How To Do This

This is somewhat similar to creating a link pyramid

Step 1: Create a page on any of the following sites WORDPRESSE-ZINE ARTICLESBLOGSPOT

Step 2: Create a page on another article directory or 2.0 Sites. For directories I consistently use a list put together By Glenn Allsop on Viperchill. Here it is

Step 3: Link the first page to your website, and the 2nd page you just created.

Step 4: Repeat this same process over and over. Link your 2nd page to your site and a 3rd page. Link your 3rd page to your site and your 4th page


My Favorite Chain Post Penguin

I am much more of a pyramid guy, however I routinely do this with Web 2.0s I create.


Overall Effectivness

While this is still a popular tactic, it is hard and time consuming to set up because of the manual submission to big sites. Go for pyramids.


Link Wheels

What It Is

A link wheel is virtually identical to a link chain except it closes the link trail. The final site in the chain links back to the first site, making a “wheel” of links. The BIG difference is that in order to make it safe you cannot link every site to your main site.


How It Works

The way a link wheel works is by making a turbo charged wheel of links. Then one to a few sites ( I suggest only 1) links to your main site.

REMEMBER: Making a link chain wheel (aka every site linking to your site) is SUPER dangerous. If you do this, do not blame me when your site gets beaten by a sack of pennies.

Anyhoo, when the link gets placed to your site, all of the massive amount of juice being transferred trough the wheel gets sent to your site. This can result in a dramatic climb in rankings if you have enough sites in the wheel.


How To Do It

This is very similar to the link chain

Step 1: Create a link chain. However, do not link to your site.

Step 2: Close the link chain by linking the end site to first site

Step 3: Link one of the sites in the chain to your main site.


My Favorite Wheel Post Penguin

I prefer to do this with 3/5 wordpress 2.0s sites. Huge link wheels are dangerous, but small targeted ones work great.


Overall Effectiveness

When paired with other strategy I am about to get to, it can be extremely potent




Tier Linking

What It Is

Tier linking is one of the most potent and popular linking strategies. In fact Pat Flynn of SPI used this type of strategy almost exclusively to rank one of his website sites. (Check it out here)

This is basically building a tier of quality links to your site, and then making a second tier of less quality links that points at the first tier. It is basically creating a bunch of link pyramids that are pointing at your site


How It Works

Currently, it is not a great idea to send many “crummy links to your site”. Now while the definition of “crummy links” can be debated, it is usually best to only send super high quality links to your site.

These high quality links make up the first tier. These are usually  made up of 2.0s, social platforms, high PR social bookmarks, high PR wikis and high pr Article sites.

You then build a 2nd tier of low quality 2.0s, bookmarks and other links of the sort. These links then all go the the 1st tier.

The result is a bunch of high quality, turbo charged links pointing at your site. This transfer of link juice allows you to keep a squeaky clean link profile, while also building a mass amount of links.


How To Do It

This is very similar to a link pyramid

Step 1: The most basic way to do this is to go and create pages on WORDPRESSE-ZINE ARTICLESBLOGSPOT. Then link to your site.  This will be the first tier. You can link them in chain if you like. Just do not make a link circle.

Step 2: Create mass links from tools, Fiverr, or Source Links to all of these pages

Step 3: Rinse and repeat


My Favorite Way To Do This

Post penguin I am all about doing this with social platforms and 2.0s. I will create youtube, facebook, and twitter pages. Then I will abuse this strategy all day. I will get into this in a sec


Overall Effectiveness

This is your bread and butter linking strategy. It is fairly easy to do and works great for even tough keywords.




Social Tiered Linking

What It Is

Social Tiered linking is the exact same thing as tiered linking except we are using social platforms.


How It Works

Google is ALL about social right now. People also link MUCH more to social sites than they do other types of sites. So what we do is use this to our advantage and create social pages. We then use them in place of other tier sites and link to them.

At the moment, Google pays WAY more attention to social sites because they are true signs of popularity. On top of this, it is great for us because Google cannot truly track what is going on behind the scenes on these sites.

This means can create HUGE boosts in rankings and creates a much more natural image in Googles eyes. (If you can’t be popular, fake it!)


How To Do It

Fairly simple instead of building 2.0s and article page, we instead build pages on social sites.

For normal niches I make a

  • Yotube channel and video (EXTREMELY basic, just film a powerpoint)
  • Facebook fan page
  • Twitter page
  • Google Plus Page
You then link to your sites in the obvious areas. For example, on the Facebook website details section…Enter your website details (DUR). We can also link to our site in our Youtube video description.


Once done creating the properties I then buy views, tweets, and likes for the relevant platforms. DO NOT buy plus’s as Google can track these. (These can be bought on Fiverr or Source Links)
We will then build mass amounts of links to these pages just like did for the basic tiered linking strategy.


My Favorite Way To Do This

I have outlined how I do this above. I am one of the few people I know who does this, and you are one of the few people I tell about it =)


Overall Effectiveness

This just freaking works. Combining social tiered linking and basic tiered linking is one of the cores of SEO.


Justified Linking

What  It Is

This right here is something I came up with after spending a lot of time with top black hatters (aka 300k-1 million dollar SEO earners) after the penguin patch. It is one of the nastier loop holes in the Google search engine and so far I am the only person I know personally who does this.


How It Works


Alright, so you just made a new site. Then you hit it with 10,000 links.


In Googles eyes this is totally unjustifiable. There is no way a new site or ANY site would get this many links so fast… unless…It was going viral.


Ever wonder why sites going viral:


A) Never get penalized even though they are literally being spammed with links from people


B) Someone show up in the search engine immediately


This is because Google algorithm makes SEVERE room for sites going viral. If Google did not have a algorithm in place to rank  sites going viral quickly, it would be IRRELEVANT (AKA Googles nightmare)


Because of this Google breaks almost all of its ranking rules as long as it is JUSTIFIED (aka backed by social signals)


So our goal is to justify our mass linking. If we do this we can get away with literal murder. We justify our linking by imitating a site going viral


How To Do This

This is semi complicated at first, but pretty easy once you do it once or twice

Step 1 : Make “base” links. These are 2.0s and social pages. Point them at your main site

Step 2: Wait 2 weeks

Step 3: Imitate your site be going viral on Facebook and twitter.  We do this by blasting it every few days with 200-1000 likes and reweets

Step 4: As we build these social signals we match them with 200-1000 links a day. This is A LOT of links, but they are justified by the social signals

Step 5: Googles sees your site going viral and believes the links are being created as a results. It rewards you with increases in rank.


Overall Effectivness

This just works. It is an extremely black hat method that I have used to slingshot many sites LITERALLY to the first spot in Google. Your site WILL get smacked if you mess this up though, so be careful




Guest Posting


What It Is

Guest posting is where you contact a blog and ask if you can make a guest post on it. 9/10 you the blog owner will let you leave a link back to your site.


How It Works

Basically you get link juice from a legitimate blog in exchange for guest post.


How to do it

Find blogs in your niche. You can do this with Google searches. Just type in (your niche) blog. Fairly easy. Contact the owner and propose a guest post


Overall Effectiveness

In my opinion this is a WAY over rated strategy when it comes to niche sites. You will see people on forums say this is the only way now….Be aware these people are IDIOTS

9/10 times the sites you can get a link from carries less weight than the links you can get from a Source Links high pr comment package. On top of this it is EXTREMELY time consuming.

When It Can Work

This is a different story when it comes to authority sites though.

If you have a small random site, chances are big authority sites will not let you guest post. However, if you have a long term authority type site yourself this is totally possible. Getting links from news site, big time blogs and generally HUGE sites is a very real possibility.

An example is me getting myself featured on Pro Blogger. Links from sites like this carry a ton of weight. They also provide great traffic.

So in short : For random niche sites, NO! For legitimate long term sites YES!



Link Baiting

Justin Biebers Haircut : Worlds Best Link Bait

What It Is

Link baiting is a very skillful advanced form of white hat SEO (It actually has more to do with public relations). This is where you create content that “baits” people into linking to you


How It Works

By baiting people into linking to us we can gain a huge amount of extremely high quality links fast. Depending on the potency of the bait, we can end up not only blasting our site to the top of Google AND also getting a surge of traffic.


How To Do It

So lets imagine we had a car related site and we wanted links from legitimate car dealer sites. We could, for example, make a top 10 list of dealership sites. We then email the sites we put in the list and say “Holy crap you made our top 10!”

We then provide them with “top 10″ badges they can put on their site that link to us. Boom, by stroking their ego we now have a ton of very legitimate links.


It Doesn’t Stop There

Now..This is just a simple example. I have seen this used in all sorts of ways. Interviewing a celebrity, doing something highly controversial, or creating something very useful all are ways to get links from people.


Overall Effectiveness

EXTREMELY effective…IF…You are clever.  Think of stuff that people will link to and create it.

Also, this is usually only worthwhile if you are building a long term site. It is also much easier if this site is a site that has news (business, celebrity, sports).



That is everything off the top of my head that I can come up with. Don’t worry I plan on adding MUCH more as I keep learning. I am also putting a link in the side bar so you can quick reference this.

ALSO I plan on adding many more guides like this..I am calling it the Omega Guide series!

    Great article as usual. No longer curious about wheels and chains. Wish I would have had this information back when I was SENuking…



    • Becker September 23, 2012 at 6:19 am #

      Ha the new version of SENuke is just AMAZING….Like offensively good

      • Iulian April 30, 2013 at 2:23 pm #

        One question about social tier link scheme. You buy likes/retweets for the FB and twitter page/account, or for the website itself? Shouldn’t the site also get likes and retweets?

        • David February 25, 2014 at 12:39 am #

          Fantastic stuff this, loved reading it. Apart from SENuke, is there another software that automates social platforms?
          I shall certainly be joining your monthly subscription plan.

    • Boris C. January 22, 2013 at 8:17 pm #

      What happened you’re no longer nukeing?

  2. Diggy September 23, 2012 at 8:23 am #

    Fantastic resource Becker!
    I guess there will only be a handful of people who read this who will actually apply this (one of those people is me).

    As a benchmark, how much do you spend on a single site to get it to the top of google? A dozen or so fiverr orders?

    • Becker September 23, 2012 at 8:49 pm #

      It really just depends Dirk, just hit me up on skype if you have anymore questions

  3. Jeff September 23, 2012 at 12:22 pm #

    Good shit!

    • Becker September 23, 2012 at 8:50 pm #

      Thanks Jeff!

  4. Lonnie September 23, 2012 at 6:01 pm #

    Another damn good post

  5. Amitav September 23, 2012 at 8:45 pm #

    Hi Becker…

    That’s just pure gold you shared!

    “Multi-Tiered Linking” is the only answer to all those Google creatures.
    I guess we just need to keep the quality high as far as our contents and sites are concern. I am also following the “content syndication” model that I got from Kim Roach. I am liking it now. The only issue is you nee to work your back off with that, as you have to get out some good real content in a regular basis, in various formats! But we have to remember that there is nothing called “free lunch” in here. We just have to pay the price for it!

    Anyways, Awesome stuff. Can’t thank you enough!

    Keep up with the good karma.. ;) :)

  6. Magick Johnson September 23, 2012 at 8:47 pm #

    Dude, I don’t know anyone else who offers so much insanely useful info, and for free. Thanks man!

    • Becker September 23, 2012 at 8:57 pm #

      No Problem bud!

  7. BarbaraP September 23, 2012 at 9:07 pm #

    Hey Becker…thanks for the ez explanations,
    ez to follow “maps” for us, and the candid advice.

    You are a much appreciated man!

  8. Mark September 23, 2012 at 9:23 pm #

    Hey Alex,

    Great article!



  9. Fontella September 23, 2012 at 10:21 pm #

    This post is just pure gold. Thank you so much for sharing everything. So many “gurus” don’t, so I commend you guys on that. Out of all these strategies you mentioned, what is your favorite or the one you use the most.
    If I’m starting a new niche/website, which would you recommend I use?

  10. Fontella September 23, 2012 at 10:24 pm #

    Oh one more thing, since you asked, I would love to see a guide on picking a good niche. And I’m sure you;’re working on this, but a case study of you taking one or more of these strategies and building a site, getting to 1st of Google and in profit.

    • Becker September 24, 2012 at 4:23 pm #

      I am actually doing that on our next SW TV episode. Be sure to tune in!

  11. Erhard September 23, 2012 at 10:32 pm #

    Hey Alex

    Great stuff bro. Just one thing that messes me up. I belong to a private blog network of about 70 High PR sites ( and growing) at this moment. Can you please explain to me what the best strategy is on how to use such a lot of blogs.
    How many links must go to my money site (page) and how many links must go to my posts? Which of the above link strategies do you suggest I use?

    Another thing that I struggle with is what the actual link must look like that link to the buffer sites and all the sites linking to them. It sounds simple but I really struggle with this. Is there a way that I can test that all the links in the line is pointing to my money site?

    Must all the strategies above ends up pointing to your money site,or must you link some of them to the pages on your site?

    Keep on Rocking


    • Becker September 24, 2012 at 4:22 pm #

      Hey Erhard,

      I instead of looking for a carbon copy of what I think, I think you should take the strategies above and mix them in ways with your blog network

      It sounds like your big issue is thinking way to much. Like the buffer site question. Just put a anchor text link on the site dude! Thats it!

      Just reasonably spread them out from your site. I don’t really have a good answer for that because I dont really think about all the stuff you just listed, neither should you!

  12. Stephen Veit September 23, 2012 at 11:11 pm #


    Awesome article! I am looking forward to the rest of the articles in this series. Thanks!


    • Becker September 24, 2012 at 4:20 pm #

      Looking forward to you reading them!

  13. Ed Guerena September 23, 2012 at 11:43 pm #

    Great article! This is the keys to the kingdom. Thanks for sharing. I’d like to see information on how to exploit Wiki’s.


    • Becker September 24, 2012 at 4:20 pm #

      Not much more to it. Just put your links on them =P

  14. Catherine September 23, 2012 at 11:44 pm #

    Thanks so much for this article. Other people would charge for this kind of info. I am definitely going to put it to use. I have put so much work into writing quality IM reviews for my website, but what’s the point if no one sees it? Hopefully after implementing some of these strategies I will improve my ranking.

    • Becker September 24, 2012 at 4:20 pm #

      =) thanks Catherine

  15. Theodore Jacobson September 23, 2012 at 11:51 pm #

    Few question bro

    Social Tiered Linking

    Once done creating the properties I then buy views, tweets, and likes for the relevant platforms. DO NOT buy plus’s as Google can track these. (These can be bought on Fiverr or Source Links)

    Do you mean profile pages or wordpress blog?

    Justified Linking

    Step 3: Imitate your site be going viral on Facebook and twitter. We do this by blasting it every few days with 200-1000 likes and reweets

    Do you mean profile pages or wordpress blog?

    • Becker September 24, 2012 at 4:19 pm #

      Profile pages

      WordPress blog

      Hope that clears stuff up!

  16. will kenderdine September 24, 2012 at 12:58 am #

    Awesome content!! Thanks for straightening out my brain on all these SEO goodies.

    Question — > You only mentioned YouTube 2 or 3 times… is it dying or fading in importance?

    …I’m hoping there are more YouTUbe tricks, as my best friend has great content we can post to Yt, Vimeo, DailyMotion, etc.

    So if there’s cool linkjuice to be had from video sites, then I’m all about it.

    Thanks Alex!!

    • Becker September 24, 2012 at 4:18 pm #

      No its not fading out, its just people make it way more complicated that it needs to be. Ranking a youtube video is virtually the same as ranking a site!

  17. Harry Salvin September 24, 2012 at 3:55 am #


    This is better then I thought it would be. I just read (3) nights ago about a method of the closed link wheel and social where you make 7 article titles and 7 different reviews for an affiliate product, paste them in a software and it does the rest. Of course you have to have set up 7 accounts in the high pr article sites they recommend.

    Thank you for the share. I will bookmark your blog for future reference and to see what else you wright about.

    Whew…! I’m glad you broke it down cause I was semi wondering had I been doing it right all this time all along….Turns out I’m a genius….ha!

    • Becker September 24, 2012 at 4:17 pm #

      Ha nice Mark =)

By the way Alex, you made our #1 best internet marketing blog ever. I will send you a badge to put on your home page right away. LMAO. Thanks Alex, your a long breath of fresh air man.

    Follow all your courses, Alex, and want to see more on Types of Links, Quantities and Scheduling.


    • Becker September 24, 2012 at 4:17 pm #

      I can get into that, thanks for the tip Sam

  20. Leigh September 24, 2012 at 7:01 am #

    TRex – SEO love it Alex. you have done a great job again here explaining all the different types of link building. I know loads of people are well confused about all this when they first start out so you just put this topic to bed for a change. Nice one and all the best ;-)

    • Becker September 24, 2012 at 4:16 pm #

      Thanks Leigh!

  21. John September 24, 2012 at 8:32 am #


    Great article!

    I have one question: When you say that you build 70 2.0s sites using Senuke XCR, are you using both social networks and web 2.0 profiles? Exactly what kind of pages are you using?

    • Becker September 24, 2012 at 4:16 pm #

      Social networks (what its called on XCR) I also use demon, as XCR is a bit limited with the amount of sites you can post too

  22. Tobi September 24, 2012 at 8:38 am #

    Alex, great post as always.
    Keep on over delivering, non of us will complain.

    • Becker September 24, 2012 at 4:16 pm #

    Senuke xcr or ultimate demon to create the tiered links. Which is better?

    And do you still recommend sending a variety of links to money site, like wikis and profile links?

    • Becker September 24, 2012 at 4:15 pm #

      XCR is ridiculously awesome

  26. Mike September 24, 2012 at 5:35 pm #

    Hey Becker,
    Love this post, it contains a lot of valuable resources! For one of my niche sites I have tried applying a sort of similar technique for sites to go viral. The variant I have used started out with a press release, tweets / likes to the main site and followed by 2.0′s, edu’s, etc. In the end it did work, but the site disappeared from the results for about two weeks. I guess the mistake was building everything at once… When the site got back I built wiki’s and social bm’s to my social profiles. After that step the site jumped to #5 :-) .

    Good to read some additional information on how to improve things, learning new stuff is always cool!

    Omega seo wow its like an medicine pill for seo because omega is one of that pill which used for indigestion.

  28. Wendy Owen September 26, 2012 at 11:58 pm #

    So glad this page is back up, came yesterday for a second read and couldn’t access.

    Thank you so much for all this advice Becker. There is so much confusion post Penguin about what works and what doesn’t. A lot of people (including me) are frozen into doing totally nothing!

    I can now move forwards with confidence. You are awesome!


    • Becker September 27, 2012 at 1:10 am #

      Glad I could help Wendy

  29. Karen September 27, 2012 at 11:51 am #

    This is amazing! Really like your social tiered linking diagram – I know you have talked about that in previous posts, but the visual really helped cement that in my mind!

    • Becker September 27, 2012 at 2:01 pm #

      Glad you enjoyed my drawings =)

  30. Eric September 27, 2012 at 4:25 pm #

    You are amazing, I’ve watched every video on your site today, I can’t believe I wasted all this time on a blackhat forum.
    One question I’ve always had is, for example on link pyramid link building what is the time frame?
    EX. I launch my website today with content, then do I wait 2 days and start building backlinks?, and two weeks later backlinks to those backlinks? and then a week after that etc etc?

    What is a good timeframe?

    Thank you again!.


    • Becker September 27, 2012 at 4:45 pm #

      Hey Eric I am getting into this in the next Omega guide. Should be out tonight or tomorrow!

      • Eric September 27, 2012 at 5:12 pm #

        Sweet! Your enthusiasm for this is so contagious! I am basically clapping myself now haha.

        Thank you!

  31. Jerome September 29, 2012 at 1:28 am #

    Wow I dont know how I found you but I’m so glad I did. Just read every thing and man I’m blown away. You made it seem so simple. All that $$ and time i’ve wasted and still didn’t quite understand what how and when and here you are giving “the keys to the kingdom” . Thanks. Looking forward to everthing I can learn from you.

  32. Dean September 30, 2012 at 2:15 pm #

    Great stuff Becker, will be using this for sure. Question, I had a site on first page for main keyword at # 1 to 3 for the past several months. Now am buried at 600 or so since Google emd update. But, isnt exact match it has a couple letters on end of domain, also has 60 plus pages on it. Blows my mind, anyway would thee strategies get me back to page one? Thanks in advance for reply

    • Becker September 30, 2012 at 9:56 pm #

      Ha its not so much that these are SECRET STRATEGIES THAT FIX SEO…They are just about the only strategies that are out there

      Also the EMD update didnt punish sites for being a EMD. It is punishing them for having low quality link profiles

  33. Derek October 2, 2012 at 4:53 am #


    I don’t usually leave replies, but I really wanted to thank you for putting this out (and for FREE no less). Your guide is the most condensed and easy to understand summery of good SEO and link building practices I’ve ever found. Just what I was looking for, now I feel I’m beginning to understand. Subscribed to your Youtube channel. Thank You!

  34. Aldin October 3, 2012 at 12:28 am #

    sweet!!! thanx a bunch for these free strategies and courses you’re putting up… do you know how does SEnukeXCr work for foreign sites and keywords in other languages?

    • Becker October 3, 2012 at 1:49 pm #

      Yes it works

      • Alexandre October 17, 2013 at 2:26 pm #

        Becker, in reality for me it didn’t worked very well.

        I couldn’t grab to much content in portuguese, and I think I used english content, just to use the Turbo feature.

        Or, if I’m wrong, I used a super-hyper-broad keyword to it.

        And, none of my links that I build with the SENuke XCR Turbo showed on MajesticSEO =/

        Well I just used out of the box, and did nothing more than that (besides alredy create my social profiles, bith withou backlinks…)

  35. Howie October 3, 2012 at 10:18 pm #


    You are the sh*t!
    I have spent lots time studying / reading this internet making money thing and SEO.
    We need more people like you who are obviously value oriented and gives high high high quality content that’s no fluff.
    I love your posts and videos!! keep them coming!!

  36. Barry October 7, 2012 at 2:45 pm #

    Hi Becker

    Thanks for the insightful information.

    I wanted to ask you if you could tell us what content exactly do you use to build the base web 2.0 properties?
    Is it just an empty WordPress/Blog-post blog with one page where you put a link to your main site?



  37. sholly October 8, 2012 at 12:01 am #

    I just want to say thank you for all the great stuff. The information you alway put in your article can easily go for a $1000.

    Thanks again


  38. Derek October 8, 2012 at 4:45 am #

    Hey Becker,

    So when you create your 2.0 sites and your wiki’s do you just use a spun article? Or several spun articles?

    Do they need to be spun? I’ve heard both ways, but I know there’s a lot of misinformation about duplicate content versus syndication. Do you need to spin the article or would using the same article on different sites be considered “syndication” and therefore not be a problem?

    • Becker October 8, 2012 at 7:55 pm #

      I spin past 200% so my articles are untraceable =)

      • Derek October 8, 2012 at 8:14 pm #

        If you spin to that level are you then able to use that same article on thousands of sites?

  39. Derek October 8, 2012 at 4:50 am #

    I also had a question about linking. When you link to all the sites via wiki’s, high pr comments, etc. are you using your keyword as anchor text? Your website URL? General terms like “site”, “click here”, etc. A mixture of all of those? Or since you’re not linking directly to your money website, can you just use your one keyword over and over again?

    That’s another “report” I wouldn’t mind seeing…the right way to use anchor text and anchor text variations in your linking.

    • Becker October 8, 2012 at 7:56 pm #

      Always diversify your anchor text a ton Derek, even when indirect linking

  40. Mark Reimers October 8, 2012 at 2:09 pm #

    This is the best, most valuable free info I’ve ever seen marketer just give away.

    Thanks a bunch!

    • Becker October 8, 2012 at 8:25 pm #

      No problem Mark =)

  41. Derek October 9, 2012 at 2:41 am #

    Hey Becker,

    Do you spin your social bookmark titles and descriptions?

    • Becker October 9, 2012 at 3:17 am #


  42. Tony October 11, 2012 at 6:57 am #

    Becker you are the MAN! Keep it up! Much Love and Good Vibes are coming your way!! :)

  43. Svetto October 11, 2012 at 6:34 pm #

    Awesome stuff man! Do you have any kind of template for SEnuke XCR that automates any of the strategies that you’ve described above? If yes, can you share it? :)

    • Becker October 12, 2012 at 12:23 am #

      I do, not sure how to share them thought!

      • Svetto October 12, 2012 at 6:18 am #

        Skype, dropbox?

      • Svetto October 12, 2012 at 4:01 pm #

        and I think you should have my email :)

  44. Ray October 12, 2012 at 11:15 am #

    As many have already commented, very informative easy to understand article.

    Thanks a lot Becker, you really have helped me to figure out this SEO stuff!

  45. Vannie October 12, 2012 at 1:31 pm #

    Hi Becker,

    Awesome free information you share with us!

    I looked at your link packages but they seem quite different than these….

    Are you planning on selling all these strategies for us as well?

    (some of us could not afford the new senuke :) )


  46. Vinny October 13, 2012 at 8:15 am #

    As a newbie I have to thank you for saving me money on buying crap wso’s from that site that people just talk crap on.

    You have written another useful post that has soooo much value.

    I love the linking strategies and Ive been using Pat Flynn’s method and it works like a charm. Im going to try the social bookmarking strategy for a new site and see if it works.

    I would love to see a case study of a new site being built from scratch and getting ranked 1st on G. Its probably a bit too much to ask, but it would help so many people to see how you approach content creation, list building, plugins you use, advanced monetization tricks etc?

    btw, I tried out a mesa mark v today…..its absolutely killer…have you tried one? What amp are you using on your videos?

    • Becker October 15, 2012 at 2:49 am #

      Hey Vinny,

      I have a good old fender mustang. I want to get a mark v, but I live in a apartment in the middle of uptown dallas. I would piss A LOT of people off lol.

      With that being said, the fender mustangs is beyond awesome for lazy guitarist like me ( I play a ton, but I truly dont know that much about guitar or the tech..need to work on it)

  47. Fieha Tran October 22, 2012 at 1:08 am #

    My website load 2 months ago , It have few backlink , but I’t not in 1000s SERP , even though easy keyword , which backlink strategy should I use?


    • Becker October 22, 2012 at 10:35 pm #

      A combination of them all Fieha!

  48. Lee October 22, 2012 at 1:36 am #

    Well, thank you, thank you. You were talking six hours for making the videos and I was panic stricken that my bandwidth wouldn’t handle it but, you kindly chopped it up into reasonable segments that we can savour at out leisure.

    I know what Wiki’s are but don’t quite understand how to use them. I’m sure there are a lot of other people in the same situation – how about some instruction on that next time?

    Really, thank you. So much of what is available is, what is the hackney phrase, re-cycled and out of date cr^p. Put out by someone just to make a buck, no value at all.

    • Becker October 22, 2012 at 10:35 pm #

      Glad to have help you out Lee!

  49. Peter Phillips October 22, 2012 at 3:52 am #

    Really liked the bit about link baiting.
    I have a site, where I list the top ten lawyers in Canberra.
    I can’t make any headway with moving it up the Google rankings, so perhaps I’ll try this approach – can’t do any worse than I’m doing now!



    • Becker October 22, 2012 at 10:35 pm #

      Great to hear Peter!

      • Boris C. January 22, 2013 at 8:19 pm #

        Link baiting? “Link biebering” fits more for term because I see his photo there.

  50. Len October 22, 2012 at 3:57 am #

    Great as usual Becker, I just have one question though. In the tiered linking and the social tiered linking, the 3rd tier doesn’t seem to be joined anywhere,so how would this help or work?


    • Becker October 22, 2012 at 10:36 pm #

      the 3rd tier hits the fb profiles and such. With social linking everything gets transferred around naturally

      • wo May 22, 2013 at 1:47 pm #

        you da man! Thank you.
        The social tier image has 3rd tier links to each other(the links with red lines) but not linking to the 2nd tier. i don’t understand how this would work.

  51. Jase October 22, 2012 at 10:14 am #

    Hi Becker,

    I am the smartest SEO of all time. There is no other form of SEO outside my own knowledge. I will take everything said in this article at face value and assume that this is all false without looking deeper into it

    I am very smart

    • Becker October 22, 2012 at 11:30 am #

      Oh my!

    • Stephen February 28, 2013 at 6:38 am #

      remove this idiot – just spam. Why give him the link juice

      • Robbin May 15, 2013 at 9:40 am #

        You’re not getting link juice m8 – rel=”external nofollow”

  52. Gill October 22, 2012 at 10:42 am #

    Great content Becker. Honestly, I’m getting a bit tired of fighting Google. I’ve been looking in to other methods to drive traffic, such as solo ads. But I will give your methods a try.

    • Becker October 22, 2012 at 10:38 pm #

      Thanks Gill

  53. Anom October 22, 2012 at 3:01 pm #

    Where do you find the better quality Facebook likes, Fiverr, Wicked Fire or Black Hat World? Or, do you suggest a different source? I use SYNND for G+ votes, but they limited to 2 per day, so a more robust system would be nice.

    • Becker October 22, 2012 at 10:39 pm #

      I use fiverr. Lotta good sellers on there

  54. Jerry October 22, 2012 at 3:24 pm #

    Listen to Alex, guys. I am a hardcore seo myself.
    I watch his posts, even adopted one of his techniques, and I can say this:
    He knows what he’s talking about! In SW you will stuff and tips that work in the real world, period. If you can’t implement it, then find someone who can.

    • Becker October 22, 2012 at 10:39 pm #

  56. George October 22, 2012 at 10:17 pm #

    Hey Becker. Love to watch your stuff. I’m from the Austin area also though I now live in Vegas. Your methods make sense and I’m very interested in your service. I see that for the basic service you don’t provide coaching. How would I know that my site is worth promoting with your service and that the money I would be investing would give me a return that would make the investment viable?

    • Becker October 22, 2012 at 10:39 pm #

      Just shoot me an email =P

  57. Domi October 23, 2012 at 3:02 pm #

    hi becker, thanks for the article.

    i have a question about the Tier Linking-Strategy. The 4 sites in tier1: can backlink from them within a day or should i wait some time or is that irrelevant because google doesnt crawl them at the same time.

    im just afraid that when im backling from wordpress, ezine, blogger etc. at the same day and then build the tier2 links that im getting sandboxed.

    whats your opinion about that?

    • Becker October 27, 2012 at 11:20 pm #

      Does not really matter because of Google indexing!

  58. Jamie October 24, 2012 at 10:48 am #

    Here’s a question for you Becker…..

    If I make a wordpress site, should I add links to my main pages that sell the goods, or just put one link on the wordpress site that links to my homepage?

    Could you explain why also?

    Also I have read that Google now does not respect and grant much authority to ezine sites and other article directories as they are often “spammy”. Can you give me your thoughts on that please?

    Great post…. white hat, black hat….. a really good read!

    Thanks for your input and thoughts Becker, I look forward to more of the same.

  59. Niklas Nyhlén October 26, 2012 at 2:42 pm #

    Thanks Becker, you got me started with SEO.

    I’ve got a simple question. I have a swedish site with 7 pages. What if I would link all of my 7 pages on the wordpress buffersite. Would all of my pages get the sweet link juice or will the juice be decreased?

  60. DR@AlphabetsforKids October 29, 2012 at 7:20 pm #

    Awesome info usual. Great content ALWAYS!

    Much appreciated!

    Thank man..

  61. DR@AlphabetsforKids October 29, 2012 at 7:48 pm #

    So i am trying to FULLY get this. a link wheel or link chain is when blogs, or aticle pages or 2.0 properties between different websites link to eachother correct?

    So, I have a squidoo account and i have a bunch of different related lenses that link to each other back and forth (for exposure in squidoo) Linking these lenses back and forth doesn’t make them link wheels or link chains correct??

    A proper link wheel or link chain would be all on different properties? In other words..Wordpress property to Hubpages -ezine article etc. correct??

    I’m not doing something stupid that is going to hurt my websites by linking my squidoo lenses together back and forth am I? Because they are all on the same property?

    I hope you know what I mean.. I just don’t want to be hurting my self and not even realizing it.

    **Now i know that in link wheels and chains you do not close the link chain or whell by linking backwards.

    Just wondering if linking my different squidoo lenses back and forth is hurting me? that wouldn’t be considered a link wheel right?????

    Please clarify for the sake of my sanity…
    Thanks.. :)

    Hi Becker,

    I really found it very useful about the linking strategies. You explained everything in a great detail and with examples. Thank you so much.

  65. Michael November 12, 2012 at 12:43 pm #

    Hey Becker, gitar hero hehe.

    Great post helped me a lot all on one info :)

    I have a Q trugh. I have made a facebook page, twitter and a youtube vid. I also got my googe+ but that a diffent story.

    1. Aim now making links to them, likes and such. But the links are no follow on it all exept google+ so how do you get the link juice?

    2. Do you connect them all together ?

    3. Do you connect them to you page?

    I did connect the google + page but thats it.

    Thanks for all the grt posts :)

    • Becker November 12, 2012 at 6:15 pm #

      Hey Michael

      1. Google still sees no follow links so dont worry about that

      2. Check out your Google + profile editor

      3. I connected them to my website (if thats what your asking)

      Hope that helps!

  66. Michael November 13, 2012 at 9:22 am #

    Thanks Becker it helped. I enjoy the reading :)

  67. Sam November 17, 2012 at 2:10 pm #

    Hi Alex & Alex,

    I am very proud of you for sharing such quality information gained from experiences. Thank you very much. This shows there some human beings like you who really do care for people less knowledgable.

    Would it be possible to give a simple advice to people who have a crappy linking all their sites together without much of SEO knowledge. If we go and relinks as your course recommended, do you think Mr. Google will be kind or become more mean?

    Keep up good work and remain Blessed.
    Thanks & Regards,
    Sam O.

    • Becker November 19, 2012 at 4:58 pm #

      Hey Sam I am proud to be able to earn the trust of such great people (like yourself)

      Well sam, it really depends on the situation. If your site has been blasted with bad links, reviving it might be out of the question. Even with the best links in the world cannot fix a site that google has crushed

      The only way to really fix it is to remove the links and hope it works (not to common)

      My best advice is grab a new domain and push the content over and start linking the right way. With this current algorithm you can get ranks back FAST

      • Sam November 19, 2012 at 8:10 pm #

        Hi Alex,

        Many many thanks for the speedy response. I really do appreciate it

    Astonishing information and well explained so even I get it :-)
    I like the short too the point explanations but I think I go to fiver and source links
    to get some sauce…

  70. The insider November 19, 2012 at 1:15 pm #

    Very intersting but over my head as a complete gummie with the seo ttactics and it seems to be too easy, is it that simple?

  71. Vincent Benedict November 21, 2012 at 4:37 pm #

    I recently bought your course from warrior and it has been a wonderful investment for me. I have learned about google authorship etc and have now started implementing your advice. I have a question:

    I have 2 websites and
    As per your advice, I want to buy some PR domain names so that I can link to them. My websites deal with hypnotherapy and weightloss. If I buy these domains, do their names have to have something to do with hypnotherapy/weightloss?

  72. Kevin November 23, 2012 at 1:02 pm #

    Hi Becks
    Great amount of info and so simply laid out – thanks man!
    Just one quickie – can we create any amount of blogs on say or blogspot under the same account and it would not flag up anything to google, just as long as the juice is being transferred??

    I have decided to do two things in my business, which will keep me focused
    1. – follow Alex Becker very closely for all my seo endeavours and
    2. – follow only Dan Kennedy at Planet Dan (which I have been doing for 2 years)

    I have unfollowed/unsubcribed/deleted and just dumped all other gurus/experts/hauncoes/masters to the bin.

    No pressure then . ..

    Thanks Again

    • Becker November 23, 2012 at 11:36 pm #

      Haha thanks a ton for your vote of confidence Kevin. We wont let you down =)

  73. Keith Wilks November 25, 2012 at 9:19 am #

    This stuff is awsome, i’m’s like reading a foreighn book to me though !
    All these people seem to understand what your talking about, and are very effervesant
    in wanting to try it!
    Soo i feel rather embarrassed in saying ” how can a complete newbie find how to implenent this stuff?
    Is there an a-z directory in terminology and what it means?
    How do you build a web 2.0 site and what does that even mean?
    Mmmm me thinks i’m in over my head..can a complete Dinosaur learn to implement this stuff and where can he find the …how to page ?

    Thanks Keith.

  74. Martin November 26, 2012 at 6:52 pm #

    What about deep links to internal blog posts?

    Do you recommend creating a new pyramid for each internal blog post?

  75. Craig Frazier November 29, 2012 at 6:14 pm #

    Thanks for the info Becker…found you recently and am just starting to dig into the goodness. I especially liked the link baiting strategy…now to come up with a way to use it for my site.

  76. Lloyd November 29, 2012 at 10:31 pm #

    Amazing article. Thank you so much for sharing it. Just started following you the other day with SEO Underdog and I’m so glad.

    This is why I STAY on your list. Quality content baby! Thanks for the awesome post!

    • Becker December 1, 2012 at 12:36 am #

      Thanks for reading Jerry, glad your hear

  78. Lloyd December 1, 2012 at 6:31 am #

    Got a question. For example, in the link pyramid explanation you say “Step 3: Create 200 links of any kind pointing to your page on these sites.” Just to confirm you’re suggesting (and I know this is just rough numbers) to create 200 UNIQUE links to EACH of the sites. So if we have 5 sites we’ve created, 200 links for each for a total of 1,000 links. And all of those links should be unique (different sources, mix of anchors, etc.).

    Also, I think an article that would be really helpful is how to use Fiverr appropriately. Especially for those of us who can’t justify purchasing software like SENuke at this point, how should we use Fiverr for some of this link building the RIGHT way.

    Thanks so much. Can’t believe all I’ve learned in the past few days.

    Very informative and thanks for the clear concise strategy. Just a thought, aren’t we all here trying to each build solid websites which will rank with authority, and aren’t then we all each a cog of a bigger wheel which is the internet? How many are we and why don’t we come up with an organized method of linking to one another? Just a thought..

    This is just like that Sonic commercial. Whoa I just had my mind blown! I wish I would have found you guys eight months ago. Oh well, half the fun is in the journey. Thank you so much for all of your help.


    • Becker December 2, 2012 at 9:39 pm #

      Loving the sonic reference =)

  81. Lloyd December 3, 2012 at 9:06 am #

    In the social tiered linking strategy, when you “We will then build mass amounts of links to these pages just like did for the basic tiered linking strategy”, what pages are you referring to. Are we building links to the social site pages, or to our website? I’m assuming we build links to the social site pages since you’re saying it’s okay to use lower quality links but I’ve never thought about linking to social profile pages like my facebook page or twitter account.

  82. Jason Faughnan December 5, 2012 at 7:49 pm #

    Love the post Becker, Ive been going through all your underdog methods recently and this is like the icing on the cake to get it all up and running.
    One question when you are linking from Tier 2 to Tier 1 with your “less valuable” links do you make them niche specific or just from any sort of random sites?
    Also when linking from Tier 1 to main site, i imagine it is definitely better at this point to use links from niche markets?

  83. SEO Gladiator December 13, 2012 at 4:40 pm #

    Becker, your content rocks and I love your lack of Warrior Forum “Mental Masturbation”! When you said….I personally build a wordpress blog. I then build 70 2.0s sites using Senuke XCR. I then build 1000 wikis and 500 high PR comments that link to them.”…what is your time frame for building these links? 1 week…1 day….etc.

    You rock man keep up the amazing content!

      Hey Gladiator,

      I will actually be making a huge post explaining the ins and outs of using tools!

    Alex Hi

    Fan-f#$king-tastic information. And free! You are the man.

    I’m not getting through on the source links link ( its showing server not found for me.

    I want to get started on this straight away and I have so many projects I’m going to apply this to, how can I order links packages? (Boy I’m buzzing!)

    Notice the Autopilot is never available as well, I even emailed back to your last invite, but no luck so far. Is there a secret way I can get in? Pretty please? Might even throw in access to my sister if that would help (page 3 Sun model in the UK!!!) :) (Only kidding sis – sort of!)

    Really want to spend some money with you – you’ve earned my trust and my respect many times over.

    Thanks again for everything so far and keep it coming.

  85. Philip Kleudgen December 15, 2012 at 10:37 am #

    Hi Becker,

    to find your blog was my highlight of the month. An early christmas present you could name it :-)

    I am happy to get all these informations on backlinking, because I focused more on onpage SEO the last time and did next to no backlinking.

  86. paddy December 22, 2012 at 11:16 am #

    Hi Becker,
    That’s a BIG SHARING!!
    I will start to follow your update..Thx!

  87. Harish December 23, 2012 at 5:33 am #

    I have had Senuke XCr since the beginning of its launch a few months back. I never really figured out how to proceed. I searched forums, help desks etc and all I got was jargon one after the other. It was like learning to read newspaper as a child. My father always told me to keep a dictionary besides me. Every time I used to find a word I didn’t understand, I had to look into the dictionary and try to understand the intent of the news and correlated the appropriate meaning. Reading a single news used to be a nightmare to start off. Same thing happened with using SenukeXCr. All I got was JARGON which I had tough time deciphering with limited success. With the information you have just provided, I am now see everything in a clearer perspective. With this information I can go about link building appropriately. THANKS A LOT for making things clearer for me and many others who are on your list. Your information is most invaluable.

  88. Jacoby December 27, 2012 at 10:29 pm #

    It’s refreshing to read someone explain things so frankly. Thanks!

    I appreciate the theory explanation followed by the step by step a lot!

    One question if I could.

    What about linking to a squidoo page? Since that is already a huge site is it okay to just send links and likes straight to your page, or should you stick to the tiered linking, wheels and chains and what not there too?

    Thanks holmes!

  89. Jacoby December 29, 2012 at 12:50 pm #

    any chance you could answer my question…..:)

    sorry to bother I just am working on this pretty hard and don’t really wanna get slapt..

  90. Jason January 6, 2013 at 5:49 am #

    Man you’ve done it again…lots of info. I have used personally the Buffer Site method for some of my sites, but having now seen the Link Pyramid wheel…hmmm will need some Omega 3 and late nights to try it out. Do you recommend Senuke as a valuable tool having to help not having to do it all manually?

  91. randi January 9, 2013 at 7:32 pm #

    Thanks for all the backlinking methods. I have been a little afraid to use spinning, tiered links, and senuke or fiverr because of issues you can have if you get caught. I will try these on a smaller scale using unique content. It should still work, I really want to use the social one, it should really be powerful. My next big project is focusing on video for my links as they seem to be taking over the front pages of google.


  92. zak January 12, 2013 at 11:19 am #

    Great post again Alex. I am amazed with a ton of materials you are giving here.
    However I have a question.
    Why we should bother to create back-links of the back-links, isn’t more logical to spend more time in finding good ranking pages where we can leave a link to our page, as those websites already have a strong back-link profile by default? Otherwise they wouldn’t rank well.

  93. Nicki January 18, 2013 at 11:07 am #

    Finally a man that comes clean and really explains things.. Thankssssssssssssss

  94. Wayne Beale January 25, 2013 at 7:25 am #

    I am a six/6 year newbie.. that’s how it’s taken me just to understand the things you are explaining…however I would like to see example as you write put together a complete project and show how that project would look based on your explanations for each step… I know this would be time consuming but teaching by examples would be a great way to go… if you need to outsource some of what I’m saying let me know… I might could help…

  95. Antti January 25, 2013 at 7:43 pm #

    Alex, do you buy those pr5 links also with keyword domains or it doesn’t really matter.
    just post related content there ?

  96. Roger Gordon January 26, 2013 at 2:23 pm #

    Excellent information. Tend to find that guest posting and purchased high pr links backed up with mass linking tends to work well with authority sites.

  97. Kamdro January 29, 2013 at 5:01 am #

    Another of your masterpiece article like your 24 hour ranking guide. I am still very new to it. I am confused about what is 2.0 sites and how to build wiki links and concept.

    Thanks once again

  98. SEO for Michigan Businesses January 29, 2013 at 10:53 pm #

    Hey Becker,

    This is a really great post that you have put together on how to do backlinking. Better content then what I have paid good money for in the past.

    A couple of questions:

    1. Would these linking strategies work just as well with local markets? i.e. dentist boston ma or plumber midland tx. Or do you have another method that you use for these types of sites?

    2. I tried going to your Source Links site ( but it states that the server can’t be found. Is this service no longer available? Or was it just a WSO at one time (as I found a link to the WF for it when I searched on Google)?

    Keep bringing the great content Becker and as you state much throughout your site, I’m going to start putting this into action and testing things out on my own.


  99. Greg Taylor February 1, 2013 at 1:30 pm #


    This is outstanding thorough huge value FREE content Man! You are one of the few Internet marketers who over delivers on everything you offer. Source Wave site is walking the walk and talking the talk.

    Your business model and strategy/philosophy works….I would have to be a f%#!ing idiot not to join Source Infinitum!!


  100. Stan February 2, 2013 at 3:15 am #

    Hey Becker:
    I’ve been messing around with SEO for about a year and really had no clue as to what all this tech terminology was about. I have bought about a hundred WSO’s and have gotten more out of your site than all those BS programs and methods put together. I also joined your infinitium program (47.00 version) and couldn’t be happier. Thanks for the great information. I feel that I can actually make some progress now that I have you on my side. By the way, I love your delivery style, laid back and natural instead of all the fake guru b.s. Your appreciated.

  101. Trey Rollo February 9, 2013 at 11:19 pm #

    That’s a lot of work.

    Do you offer a service that can do what you just explained?

    Awesome content

  102. Michael Milas February 25, 2013 at 10:26 pm #

    Love this post. I have spent countless hours pulling and picking information from various blogs and resources try to “crack” the SEO code. Until I found this website and even more specifically this post I felt like I was just running around in circles. Its nice to find someone who just lays it all out, right there, all in one post even. I will defiantly be back to cruise this site and check future posts. Really, I don’t think anyone has laid out SEO better than you have on this site. Thanks for the quality info.

  103. dioni ferlini March 4, 2013 at 12:11 am #

    Hey Becker!

    Great post and truly great info on what’s available out there and how to go about doing it the right way. @Trey Rollo – one of the services that Becker offers is Source Wave Auto Pilot with three different levels. I got in on the basic called Lazy Ace. I wasn’t thinking clearly and didn’t see what a huge advantage it would have been to get in at the top level – Nuclear.

    Unfortunately, you have to be on a waiting list to get in, and then wait until they open it back up to grab your spot. If you have read the videos this man puts out, you already know the quality of the service you will be receiving.

    Hey Becker, time for my daily request – how about letting me upgrade from Lazy Ace to Nuclear? I am going to keep bugging you until you do.

  104. Alex March 4, 2013 at 12:43 am #

    BRO! Whats up with source-links??? You link to it, but its been down for months. Best SEO post I have ever read btw

        Hey Becker,

        Lets say we are making a small link wheel and we wanted to rank for the term, “widgetwidget”

        Do we link all the wheel sites together with the KW “widgetwidget” and then link one wheel site with the KW “widgetwidget” to the money site?

        OR do we link the wheel sites together with random anchor texts and only use the KW we want to rank for to link to the money site?

        Thanks man

    Hi from the UK Becker -Great site by the way

    I’ve just bought an EMD with 3600 exact searches (US) and have set up the page as a skeleton site as you suggest. Its in the tough niche of dating and I intend to use it to build my first email list

    The search for the keyword shows that position 2 has 12 back links and the position 3 has no back links at all – neither have the entire keyword in title, URL or description.

    Two questions if i may=

    1 what and how many back links would you throw at the site and how fast
    2 would you suggest installing Analytics to track when the traffic increases so that I could react to adding more content to the site

    Cheers and keep up the good work on this great and refreshing site

  110. Nathan March 17, 2013 at 4:11 am #

    Hey Becker,

    I’ve basically just been devouring all this awesome information on your site. I am curious how you are able to get “Likes” so quickly, when simulating a viral post/video/tweet for example.


  111. Kat March 20, 2013 at 3:51 pm #

    I want more, definitely

  112. Peter G March 21, 2013 at 9:20 am #

    Hi Becker

    I’ve only recently become aware of your online presence and have been frankly blown away by your infectious enthusiasm for sharing your SEO knowledge with any one who cares to pay attention. I bought your 500k article too and like what you have to say.about
    selling myself as an SEO techie even though I don’t feel that confident about it just yet. After working on a few websites I still haven’t nailed the art of selling anything but I put that down more to the fact that I have difficulty in focusing on what needs to be done because I work at a typical day job and when I get home tend to read my emails instead
    of concentrating on my websites! My wife thinks I’m wasting my time but I just know that I’ll find success sooner rather than later, especially when you inspire me to keep going.
    Thanks for all your info so far & keep up the good work!

    Peter G

    Great guide! I will definitely put this into practice.
    Question: For all the types of backling strategies you went through, do you create templates for them in SeNuke?

  114. Chriss March 28, 2013 at 2:32 am #

    I would buy ANYTHING from you guys! And I have. But you know what, I am just now getting into the meat of your site and I have learned SO frickin’ much about SEO just in reading your blog over the past couple of days than I have in the past 1 1/2 years of studying it and buying bullshit WSO’s.
    Becker, will you marry me???? LOL

    Hey Becker,

    Awesome site my friend really enjoy reading your posts and your humor.

    After building out your main money site how many 1st tier links would you build for a medium competition niche to a local business website.

    I understand that I would then send lots more links to the 1st tier links.

    Two things…

    1) Can I have the 5 minutes of my life back after watching the Justin Bieber video on youtube,? xD

    2) Thanks for the info, do you recommend white hat or black hat for long term money making? I make $200.00 a month off of a white hate website which has taken a year to build, poor payout if you ask me. But I’ve tried this link building stuff and haven’t had any luck yet…

    Thanks for providing all of your knowledge, you are a smart dude.

    When some one searches for his required thing, thus he/she needs to be available that
    in detail, thus that thing is maintained over here.

  123. Rich April 29, 2013 at 2:41 am #

    Thanks for the linking details. I appreciate it!!

    Quick question. When creating Facebook and Google+ pages, do you set up a separate FB/G+ account to do that? I assume you would need to so you wouldn’t have all your FB pages tied to your own personal FB/G+ page. It’s easy enough to do on Twitter and YouTube, but wasn’t sure about that with these.

  124. Yev May 1, 2013 at 10:38 am #

    Alex, I love you as a person, but PLEASE don’t advertise products like Profit Sniper in your newsletter. Check their reviews first. I am your loyal customer and buy things you recommend, but that thing was awful with massive complaints from people (Warrior Forum).

    Do you have anything on “how to convert from SEO niche traffic?”

    This would benefit future study of 80% SEO rule.

    I would want a product on how to have MAXIMUM conversions from niche websites and that type of SEO traffic. I’d buy it in a snap and I’m sure many others would too.

    Great info you provide, especially for free. All that I have read since finding you a few days ago has been easy to understand. This one is a bit confusing. I will need to read it a few times to fully understand it. I am getting confused between what is your main site and your first site in the chain when you say don’t link to the first site or main site. I can’t even explain how I am confused so I will read it a few times.

  141. Chris June 19, 2013 at 4:27 pm #

    Thanks for making all this much clearer. I have also looked at your SENuke video and note you advocate ArticleBuilder. In my experience, these articles have been used so many times they invariably don’t ‘stick’, meaning they either don’t get indexed or get deindexed later. Are you using any special tools or indexing software to get a higher stick-rate?

  142. Rick Astley June 22, 2013 at 3:14 am #

    VERY in depth article Becker.. I plan on starting my blog network up soon. I’ve got a question though: is 150 backlinks enough on a PR4 domain if the backlinks seem to be well built and natural looking?

  143. jeff June 24, 2013 at 1:42 pm #

    Do you recommend any other product than senuke to do your linking strategy or with a website like fiverr or sourcelink and outsource almost everything or if i want to do it all myself what is the most effective strategy outline in your post?

    This is very cool and deep explanation, just wanna say : you really understand what other people looking for!!! Thanks for thie great posting :)

    Hey Becker there is this thing coming out about mobile sites with guys like Anik Sagal. Need some inside knowledge about how to build mobile sites. Also there needs to be a posts about public niche sites. I heard people are using them to make quick money. How does google treat public niche sites?

  152. Pal July 28, 2013 at 8:02 am #

    Great stuff, as ever

    Google is always playing catch up with sophisticated IM’ers -> not the other way round.

    By the time their techniques, obtained by testing Googles black box, filter down to the masses it becomes time for G to look at an algo change.

    I can see future G updates punishing sites with only quality backlinks as unnatural

    One reason they may not go there is that, somewhat ironically, that change would make link building even easier

    Great stuff, I’d like to know the answer to the above as well. thanks in advance.

    This is crazy. Finally I found a fantastic back-linking guide that I have been looking for the past 4 years where I only earned $512.38 which is really SAD! And I must thank you for this Alex and I thank Pat Flynn too for introducing me to you.

    And THANK YOU so much for making this Free! I purchased modules from 3 self proclaim IM Gurus for $5k++ in total for cow SH!T! At least cow sh!t are good fertilizers. You don’t even get a structured instructions on back-linking like this from those modules. I purchased those modules to keep getting more ads from them to purchase more from their affiliates!

    Well, anyhoo… Now that I’ve let it out… *relief… I thank you again Alex. If I do well in future, I’ll book a flight and fly to the USA to shake your hands.

    Hi Alex,

    Got a quest for Social Tiered Linking. On the first tier, do we have to make a link chain or it is ok if we link it all together?

  156. Brent August 5, 2013 at 6:39 pm #

    Hey Alex,

    Thanks for laying out the basics of linking in such detail…something most people would charge for!

    Much like you, when I started building my sites a couple years ago, I had to figure it out on my own, when most of those teaching SEO overlooked these simple basic steps.

    I’m absolutely loving the value of training I’m receiving from your Infinitum webinars as well! Anybody reading this who isn’t in Infinitum, I’ll plug it for Becker, you want to get in there.

    Question for you. Are you still using SENuke at this time? I just got on your list recently and received your follow-up email sending me to this page, but I know you made it in 2012, so wondering if it’s still good to use SENuke today.

    Thanks man!

  157. racer stopwatches August 5, 2013 at 7:50 pm #

    According to you what will be the best ways of promoting a very new website ? Will high PR back links work ?

    BTW your article is really very educative and SEO video tutorials are one of it’s kind. They are really the BEST.

  158. Michael Dantzie August 11, 2013 at 5:42 pm # doesn’t work anymore? There’s just one page with no content and a search bar and that’s it.

  159. jamal August 15, 2013 at 6:40 pm #

    hello alex , you are really awesome , it’s really about taking it easy and simple , I ranked this in about 2 month with a little to no baclklink !! really awesome

  160. Joehann August 19, 2013 at 11:41 am #

    Thanks for clearing this up for me.

    Appreciate it.

    Build tiers (blogs) and link to them!

  161. Rick Martinez August 22, 2013 at 5:32 pm #

    Hey Becker, you really kicked a** with this epic post, really good stuff, i have couple of questions, I am going to do the social tier linking for 4 of my sites, I already had a facebook for some, and all videos are on same youtube channel, i built 4 new google plus pages,
    my plan of action is as follows, and let me know if i am doing anything wrong, or advice you can give me,
    I will hire from fiverr to get views for the youtube video (specific to site),
    tweets, and facebook likes (specific to site)
    and also google plus page, (not the actual google + button)

    Then, at same time, since gig would probably take about 3 days to complete
    I will backlink with link wheel, to the actual social sites, fb page, google + page,
    video url,

    question 1, do you see any problems with it being the same you tube channel, although they are going to be 4 different videos

    question 2, why do i have to wait 2 weeks, although I think i know why, just wanted to know your reasoning,

    any other important tips or advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks for all you do, keep rocking, it, you dont have to answer me here, if you can email that will be cool,

  162. Dustin Rich August 23, 2013 at 9:27 pm #

    Thanks again for these really helpful articles Alex! I am in the process of building up one of my sites and this is really helpful.

    I especially like the details of what not to do like “closing the link.” That’s going to be really helpful as I move forward.

    Thanks again!

  163. Julian August 26, 2013 at 1:59 pm #

    Awesome stuff Alex.

    The social tiered linking section blew things out the water for me. I guess testing and just DOING it does pay off! Oh and pissed myself at that Justin Biebers haircut pic. “Worlds Best Link Bait”


    Thanks dude

  164. Dave September 12, 2013 at 5:06 pm #

    Thanks for the awesome information, Alex. I am going to go through this with a fine-toothed comb once again and begin to implement TODAY!

    One question I have is regarding websites that have already had extensive SEO/linkbuilding work completed previously… For example, a bad link profile for a name brand site because of a previous SEO…

    How can I correct this? Simply by building a better link profile to bring the BAD link profile back into acceptable ranges (anchor text, high pr backlinks, referring domains, referring ips, etc)?

    Thanks again,


  165. James September 13, 2013 at 2:45 pm #

    Great resource Becker! I hope you make a video on these techniques with more details.

    Thanks again!


  166. onlinebroker September 23, 2013 at 10:26 pm #

    Interesting, I never thought about building links for the tier 1 Article linksites. Is it really necessary to do this with automated tools for 100s of links, or can this also be done effectively without those. (kinda like I am trying right now).
    Do you have to make new accounts for the tier 2 links for every tier 1 site?

  167. Amanda Castillo September 26, 2013 at 10:12 am #

    Hey Alex!

    Thanks for sharing this awesome content. We are in 2013 and this is working like a charm. I have one simple question about this strategy. How big should web 2.0 (wordpress, blogger, bligoo etc.) have to be?

    I mean…how many articles should each web 2.0 have and how many links should we point to our money site.

    Thanks in advance

  168. Maria Pinho October 10, 2013 at 11:58 am #

    This is incredible stuff, thanks Becker! I haven’t found the “trick” to getting our new Press Release distribution site ranked, but now I know how!

    I’ll be joining one of your monthly programs soon…


  170. Martin Walker October 13, 2013 at 11:19 pm #

    Hey Alex,

    Awesome post here thank you!

    If I am creating a WordPress blog that links to my money site, should I also create new blog identity? I saw on that if I login using my most common email address that it looks like all of the blogs are from the same person, like an authorship thing. Should we make different WP account for each niche?

    I just bought SEOZen, SEOOmega courses and SEO Enlightenment, and am working through them, thanks for your 2 cents on this!


  171. Dragos Cojocaru October 14, 2013 at 6:42 am #

    Hi Alex,

    Today is 14 october 2013, a week after Penguin 2.1 release. I understand from Matt Cutts that this update is aiming the LINK SCHEMES.
    I use the TIER LINK method that you have exposed in this article? It still works? It will be consider like a link scheme after Panguin 2.1?
    Thank you for your reply.

  172. mike cooper October 14, 2013 at 9:50 pm #

    Hi Alex,

    Awesome content!! the value you are giving will return to you tenfold!! Today’s date 14 October 2013 now post Penguin 2.1 now in your honest opinion which of the above strategies is still going to cut it?

  173. drew November 10, 2013 at 5:25 pm #

    This is some awesome info but I have a question about social tiered linking. Facebook and twitter use no follow on the majority of their links does this affect anything?

  174. Syed November 13, 2013 at 6:18 am #

    Your sourcewave links URL’s are not working. Maybe you have moved the site. Kindly update the links in this blog post. The rest of the blog post is simply awesome. I loved reading it.

  175. Sunny November 25, 2013 at 1:18 pm #

    Its a great resource, this took me 30 minutes to read the complete post. I’m following you since I purchased SEO Omega & I’m building links to my site as you asked in the course. But its 1 month & my site is still on top 3 pages of google. Anyway I’ll continuously build links to my pages to increase my rankings. Anyway, thanks for the awesome post & I’ll try to build links as you mentioned in the post here.

  176. Jason December 5, 2013 at 10:20 am #


    This is a life saver as I had just launched my website before realizing we are going to be pretty much in the dark for 2 months because no one can see us (even though I’m so ready to have the world see what we are offering).

    This is Thanksgiving-like generosity, you earned my FB like!

  177. Leigh December 31, 2013 at 7:06 pm #

    Hey Becker,

    Thank you so much for this information! I am brand new to this stuff, and only learning to help sell my own products. I now realize I can use this to make money purely online. Much appreciated!

  178. nazeem January 3, 2014 at 6:41 pm #

    I don’t understand the difference between tiered linking and pyramid linking

  179. Samir January 12, 2014 at 8:20 pm #

    Hey Becker,

    Thank you so much! You’ve been such a big help for me !

    My question is …is it possible to use a combination of all the link building strategies you mentioned above, meaning would it work when combining two strategies together to build link to your site? or Do you recommend using one strategy at a time ?

  180. stopwatches January 20, 2014 at 3:06 pm #

    Epic post dude. Awesome. But any tips an unused old domain ? Anyway this article rocks.

  181. edson February 2, 2014 at 3:32 am #

    After picking up a lot without learning anything right, I guess now I can make a profit and only work with internet.
    I will put into practice and see what happens.
    Many thanks Becker.
    Big hug and much success.

  182. Jack February 5, 2014 at 12:59 am #

    This is what I was looking for, I take it pyramid and tiered are the best.

    Alex I take it that now its 2014 you reccommend PR Blog Networks over all of these? Or are some of these methods still effective?

  183. Emily Jenifer February 9, 2014 at 6:54 pm #

    Hi Alex,
    I have been a great fan of your instructions methods and the knowledge you share with SEO community. I personally endorse tiered backlinking strategies which is keeping me aside from google wrath.
    I believe, Tiered link building is one of the most effective methods of link building at the moment. It offers a huge range of benefits which can help protect you from future Google Algorithm updates.
