Ultimate Demon New Linking Strategy – Part 2

Part one is here

I’m guessing many of you who have been in SEO for a while have seen linking diagrams such as the one pictured below.

Ultimate Demon is of course perfectly capable of making structures such as these. In fact it’s probably the easiest sort to make. You would first task it to create around 60  Web 2.0 sites as your tier one links, and then move on from there. Link pyramids, link rings or perhaps “push” linking.

Ultimate Demon. Example of a poor link structure

It’s a little unfair to pick this picture, and it’s not my own work. I’m hoping that the site that promotes this is using it as an example of what used to work rather than the services that they are providing now, because the simple fact is this is no longer anywhere near as effective a system and method as it used to be. You can certainly make Ultimate Demon do far more than this.

First ask yourself this question. Do you think Google knows what Web 2.0 site is?

I’ll answer that for you, yes, it almost definitely does.

Now five points for the person who spots the rather massive footprint that the diagram above has.

Right, every site that has direct link contact with the money site is a Web 2.0 URL.

Why is this a problem?

There are two main reasons why you want sites to link to you. Firstly to pass traffic onto your site. So a visitor first arrives at a Squidoo lens or a Hubpage or whatever, sees your link clicks on it and arrives at your site.

But the main purpose of the structures is to actually add SERPS power to your own web pages. And to do that you want lots of links from lots of different sources. (Something Ultimate Demon is excellent at).

Articles, directories, bookmarks, and of course Web 2.0. In addition, as I mentioned in part one there is nothing wrong with having high PR forum profiles and blog comments as well. In fact anything that adds value to your site.

But there is another level of complexity here. How realistic are linking profile do you think it would be for only high PR links are directly connecting to your website’s URL’s?

Again, the answer is not very realistic at all.

If nothing other than PR three or higher URLs are directly linking to your site this is in itself a footprint. And today’s linking strategies should all be about obfuscating your linking structure. Perhaps making it that complicated over a period of time that even you can’t fully understand it.

Ultimate Demon used to make complex backlink structures from high PR sites

So, here is where Ultimate Demon comes in again.

Following the video above and repeating the steps taken in it for each type of site you can initially pick out those with a PR high enough or an Alexa ranking low enough to be considered as your first-tier proper.

Do this regardless of the type of site it is. I can’t stress this enough. There is this strange and wonderful idea that Web2 sites are the “glory boys”, and should be the only ones with direct links to your money pages.

This is not only untrue, it also giving your linking structure a very large footprint. As we mentioned above Google and the other search engines are well aware of what a Web 2.0 site is, and if that’s the only sort that is linking to you then there’s your easily spotted footprint right there.

For those who don’t get this. A footprint that looks “unnatural” is likely to get penalized by the search engines. Why? Because they will make the assumption that to have this very formulaic looking structure you must have “done it yourself” or hired/subscribed to a link making service to make these links for you.

That’s self promotion, and the search engines HATE self promotion. They want to see a natural linking structure caused by individuals finding your work and linking to it themselves because they believe that it adds value and is useful to visitors of their own websites.

They don’t want evidence that you just made a ton of links yourself.

A footprint like the one in the top diagram looks openly and overtly self promotional and un-natural. It’s a link pyramid, and like link rings and push linking it’s an obviously artificial structure.

You can maybe guess what’s in part three of the Ultimate Demon linking strategy, but there will probably be at least a part for and possibly even a part five as we look into it in a little bit more depth. I hope then to do a couple of case studies to show you how this works in comparison with traditional linking pyramids, link rings and the 2011 buzzword “push” linking.

The great thing about Ultimate Demon is it allows you to do any or all of these relatively easily as long as you understand the administrative features that come with this product.

Now I’m not saying your site will fail if you use an old-fashioned linking technique, what I’m saying is use these ideas and come up with a unique linking profile just you. Disguise your footprint and make the most of Ultimate Demon and the other SEO tools you have at your disposal.

Coming soon Are several videos concerned with scraping, a few case studies and the last two or three parts of the linking strategy. I hope to have perhaps 20 or 30 more videos up by the middle of March making this as complete a tutorial guide is possible. Take care, and keep linking.

Linking Strategy Part 3

PS Thanks to the competitor on Youtube who has flagged every single one of my videos over the last weekend. I’ve had an email from Youtube admin this morning telling me that the temporary “hold” on my videos has been removed and that the account that created the false flags has been banned.

I am sure it was a brand new account made just for the purpose of flagging my videos, but I’m also pretty sure who is behind it and I’m not going to retaliate with that sort of stupidity – I’m going to beat you on quality of new content over a very long period. How do you like those apples?
