great stuff, quick question though should we be using spun content for our tier 1 like this? I thought the use of software would be best for tiers 2 and 3.
Also great vids keep up the awesome job, I just wish video 4 was ready :)

Hi,

If you watch video 2 you will see how I advise you to spin the base set of content you use. A high quality hand spun article on the sentence and word/phrase level is more than good enough to use on the first tier of links.

Not all spun content is equal ^^

Hi Matthew,

These videos are excellent. I've never quite got my head around tiered link building but your videos have just helped my understanding greatly. Thanks for the taking the time to put them together. It's made me excited to realise the possibilities of ranking sites in competitive niches with this!

Quick question: The projects are scheduled in UD over 2 weeks – can I pause the submitter without disrupting the process? I don't run UD on a VPS (is that even possible?) and can't leave laptop running constantly for 2 weeks as I have to take it back and forward to various places. How does this work?

Also, have you tried the new 'Link Tree' (beta) function in UD? Could this be used to make the whole process you showed us easier to manage?

Thanks!

Luke

Hi Luke,

I'm glad you have taken something from my videos =D It really isn't that complicated when you take a step back and look at things in a simple way.

You can pause the projects in UD, in fact you can schedule them so they only run during certain hours if you wanted to. Alternatively you can throw Ultimate Demon onto a VPS which you will need for tier 2 and 3 anyway.

I have looked at the new link tree function but it doesn't really excite me, while Ultimate Demon is great for tier 1 links it is a bit to controlled for tier 2 and beyond. I will have a play with it but I dont see it becoming part of my process.

Cheers!

Luke Bremner Reply:

Yes, agreed. Everything is simple when broken down in to logical steps and your videos do exactly that.

Ok, thanks for clarifying that. Will you be providing more information aboutsetting up a VPS and tier's 2 and 3 in the next videos? I just run my tools on my laptop but have been looking into a VPS for a while now.

It'll be interesting to see how the Link Tree function develops. I also have scrapebox so hopefully that'll be enough for tier 3?

Thanks again.

Matthew Woodward Reply:

Setting up a VPS is as easy as rent one and install software. Personally I don't use a VPS I have a couple of machines locally with various tools that i just remote desktop in, local dedicated servers in a way I suppose.

Scrapebox has its use for posting links, but not in video 4 :P probably in video 5 ^^

Video 4 is live btw

Hi Matt,
I’ve looked at VPS and it seems like it would cost between $200 and $300 per year. I could get a pretty decent second hand desktop computer for about 500 quid. Is there any other advantage to using VPS over a local machine?
Also do you need a certain amount of computing power for UD to work on the different tiers? I have a Windows laptop that I only use for spinning and have a couple of Macs for everything else. Would the laptop be enough for UD?

Cheers,

Chris

Matthew Woodward Reply:

Hi,

Yes you can do that, and that is what I do but im on an 80mb fibre line that can deal with that kind of bandwidth.

I have since had to upgrade with some VPS’s though as I was more than over capacity on my local box.

You need to be a bit more specific on specifications :)

Reply

Chris Reply:

Yeah, the more I’m looking into this the more I’m leaning towards a VPS. Did a bit of research and there seem to be some basic ones for $10 to $15 per month.
I expect to be able to get 2 to 3 UD projects ready per month, plus the accompanying GSA, until I get the hang of it and hopefully start seeing results.
Do you think that 1.5 GHz, !GB RAM and unlimited network traffic would be adequate?

Cheers,

Chris

Hi Chris,

Yeah there isn’t really a right or wrong answer here, just whichever glove fits you best.

Another great video Mathew! Have you checked out Seo Content Machine? It allows you to paste a keyword in and it will scrape either videos or pictures and then it combines them in spintax. It does a bunch of other things also…google it. The last I checked it was in beta also. It may speed up the video and picture process of your workflow.

Reply

Matthew Woodward Reply:

Hi,

I have found that most tools that scrape image URL's dont obey the 'small' rule in my tutorial which means when you post them out they don't look great when they overlap.

To be honest doing it manually only takes a few minutes if you blaze through it with keyboard shortcuts.

I've tried Wicked Article Creator as well but still not found a suitable bit of kit to automate what I want to do specifically.

hi Mathew, this is great, you sharing youre strategys, as a newbie , this may seem a bit nieve, but when you spin the anchor text for all those phrases, does this not mess up the quality of the carefully hand spun at sentence , word and phrase level article, I understand its importance, due to penguin. thanks again, on another note, as I'm on a very low budget, and I work of an old mac, which is to slow to run parallels, are there any equivalents in mac version , everyhing is pc, :)

Reply

Matthew Woodward Reply:

Hi Tony,

When you spin your article you need to keep in mind what kind of words/phrases your going to be linking so it makes sense on the final output.

Ahhh Mac's really aren't that great when it comes to SEO. I would recommend getting a cheap VPS which will build links all day everyday for you.

Yes I'll be doing it but the basic principle is to build them like mini sites complete with images, videos, unique articles and links to other relevant sites.

Hey Matthew,

as I can't buy the best article spinner (they have only 1 payment option which I can't use – doh) and my current spinner doesn't have "Spin together" option (double doh), could I just spin videos and images manually? For images there isn't much of a problem, I can simply spin http's and insert them in SRC tag, but what can I do about videos? Replacing every video code two times and then spinning them all together would be very painful :)

Why do you need GSA also? Why not just use UMD to build to the first tier links?

Reply

Matthew Woodward Reply:

The reason is because UltimateDemon only supports 10-15 platforms which means we have a fairly limited target list of sites that we can post to.

GSA on the other hand has about 120 platforms which gives us an endless amount of link targets to use in the lower tiers which require an awful lot more volume.

Also you dont want to end up with the same site been used as a tier 3 link as a tier 2 link and so forth.

That's why I just use Ultimate Demon for tier 1 links and nothing else, and GSA which has a much wider scope for everything else.

Hey Matthew, if you are wanting to target say 4 keywords, how many web 2.0s are you going to set up and will you use the same ones and just keep posting content to them with your links in the articles.

Is that 4 keywords for 1 landing page? or 4 keywords across 4 pages?

Hi Matthew,

Thanks for the response above. Just another quick question if you don't mind. Are all of your tier 1 links on external sites. Is there a case for creating a 'Tier 0' of privately hosted domains with web 2.0 sites on that then point to the main target? I'm thinking of the control to switch off or retarget these sites if needed. How do you then 'switch off' the tier 1 sites in this set up?

Thanks a lot again!

Reply

Matthew Woodward Reply:

Hi,

I'm not sure what you mean – but you can use privately hosted domains and web 2.0 mini sites to support your tier 1 link profile.

I assume by switch off a link you mean remove it, if you have created it with UD you can get the login details to remove it or if you own the domain just do it that way.

Reply

10.16.2012

Hi,

How does this work across multiple domains and keyword targeting? By adding all the urls to one large list do you not mix up the keyword targeting effects? Is there a way to put different url lists into unique groups so you only pull from this group when pushing a particular domain?

Thanks.

Then i spent hours and hours to spin all of this content properly like you show in your “advanced spinning techniques video ” …

I have now 2 articles spun to word, sentences level including images , videos, money site link and contextual links… and 1 articles spun to word and sentence level…

tell me if I am correct :

1 article spun with video and image for web 2.0
1 article for wiki’s ( including image and video ?? )
1 article ( the same ) for article directories and press release

One last thing should your Video contain your money site link or should just describe your industry related to your keyword?

Hi Matt, excellent content. Things are starting to make sense :)

I understand each campaign should target 1 page/keyword.

But I am trying to figure this out:

1. In the articles/content we are using the targeted keywords and we are spinning the anchor text – but we are always linking back to the main URL and NOT the page that we are optimizing. Should we sometimes link back to the optimized page instead of the root URL (to increase the PR of that page)? If so what would be the best way of doing it? A different task in UD using the same article (spun) with links to that internal page?

2. What if I target 2-3 keywords on one page on my site? We only have 1 backlink in the article using one keyword. Should I write the article using all 3 keywords OR do I need a separate article targeting only 1 keyword per article. Would I need to create separate tasks in UD for each keyword?

3. Once I scraped my list of sites based on a specific keyword I chose to optimize, should I categorize those sites in UD, so I know those sites where for that keyword? Because I have another site that has nothing to do with this niche. For this keyword/site I will be scraping a new set of sites, correct? I will probably end up with a huge list of sites in UD. Do you categorize them so you know which ones you scraped for what website? And when running campaigns, you choose the proper sites category?

4. When choosing sites to post to, I see that you just took the top 400 sites each time. How about the other sites you scraped into UD? When do you use them? For other keywords? Do you keep track which you already submitted to and try using other ones? Or do you try to use only the ones you have a high success rate?

Otherwise everything seems to be clear, for now :)

Thanks a lot for all your hard work.

Reply

Matthew Woodward Reply:

Hi Lou,

Thanks :)

The campaign should target 1 page for multiple keywords.

1) You link to the page you want to rank, whether thats the home page or an inner url

2) You should be targeting 3 at a bare minimum – the more the better

3) You can if you want, I don’t

4) I select 400 to allow for failures etc and to ensure the link profile is always different and no footprint is left

Thanks

First of all, I think you’re incredible. (And I’m not just saying that to be a kiss a**)

I have one big (and possibly ridiculous) question. I’m not up to building the mini-sites just yet so … the first round of links I’m building using UD … should they be pointing to my money site or to buffer web 2.0 pages that I build manually to act as buffers?

I’ve gone over everything a 100 times and still can’t seem to figure it out. Thanks in advance, I’d really hate to screw this up right from the beginning!

Hi Matt

I do Seo for local business and love the process of what your doing.
Regarding writing the articles would it matter if they were not 500 words if writing about a local business, say a plumber or electrician. Or would it be still advisable to go for the full 500 words.
Also would you do it like a press release and write as if your recommending that company or would you write about yourself.
Great videos BTW.

Should this be the actual site I’m promoting or just random spun urls?
Thanks again & hope I can return the favor.
Best
Yohan

Hi,

Your tier 1 links should link to you and also other relevant sites, but always you :)

You say prepare 3 articles, but it looks like you only use one. Are you using a different article with the article directory submissions than you are with the web2.0 submissions? Where do you use the 3rd article?

Matthew Woodward Reply:

Hi,

1 for web 2.0s, 1 for ad/pr’s and 1 for wikis.

Matt, would you recommend sending Tier 1 links to a blog network (about 3 blogs, PR 5, owned and managed by myself) for more juice or are those PR 5′s (already directly linked to my websites) already doing me enough good, and should I diversify to other links?

Thanks!

Matthew Woodward Reply:

HI Carl,

They are good enough already – be better off turning those PR1s into tier 1s

Hi Matt,

Why do you use TheBestSpinner if there’s already a built-in spinner in UD?

Matthew I want to say thank you for the video, SEO is explained really clearly here.

Can you tell me how do you which types of sites from UD accept anchor links/images/embedded videos and which ones don’t?

Matthew Woodward Reply:

Web 2.0s for images/videos/links, just links for everything else

Hi Matthew,

In your video at 3.27 – In the UltimateDemon software.

What Web address URL should be entered in this field? Should it be your main Money website?

Or should it be randomly spun websites?

Thanks!

Matthew Woodward Reply:

Hi,

Either your money site url or any other URL you want – this is just what appears in your profile.

Hi Matt, this is by far the best step by step guide to tiered link building I have come accross. Well done! I just have a couple of questions.

1. How many alternative titles and subtitles would you suggest for the the web 2.0, articles and press release? So far I have 3 that are all highly spun. Do you think this is enough?

2. Can you put images and video in the articles and press releases also? So far I have only done the web 2.0

Thanks
Greg

Matthew Woodward Reply:

Hi Matt, it’s me again :D
I currently get SB and UD from your affiliate link to support you. :)
Later I will also get GSA and captha sniper from your affiliate too.
So right now I have found a site list and imported many site into it. Some of them I have scraped from scrape box. But I have very high fail rate.
If I just choose a few hundred of site to post on, no matter which type, I think I cannot end up with 100 posts go live.
So I am doing in this way, I don’t use the schedule in UD. I choose all site for every campaign and everyday before I do anything else, I change to abort number (add 10 everyday). In this way, I can make sure that I have around 10 backlinks go live everyday. However, I think it is too stupid. Do you have any suggestion to make this work flow better and can be set then hand off?

Reply

Matthew Woodward Reply:

Hi,

Thanks very much :)

So lets break this down. You have found a list of sites online to import into UD. Some of the sites imported but many failed (this is normal).

The problem you have is when you actually come to using the sites to submit links to?

Reply

choikh Reply:

oh! maybe I present it badly cuz English isn’t something I good at :P
Actually when submitting to UD, there are high failure rate. So the scheduler isn’t something good for me to use. For example, I schedule 300 sites through 7 days and expecting at least 50 successful submission. Finally there maybe only 20 successful :(
To solve this problem, I don’t use the scheduler. I just select a few hundred sites to submit to, then stop after 10 complete. Next day when I wake up, I make it to stop after 20 complete, etc. But I just think this is stupid. Do you have any suggestion?

Reply

Matthew Woodward Reply:

Hi,

Ahhh I understand – so when you get that very high fail rate and look at the task log for the campaign. What are all the reasons they have failed?

Reply

choikh Reply:

There are many different fail reason.
Mainly are “no activation email receive” “unable to detect footprint” “sign up page not found”
The lowest successful rate is Wiki site. I submit to 550 and only get 10 complete. Article is also poor, 17 complete for 200 submission.
Is my fail rate really high? I am thinking my site list is not good. I need to clean up bad site.

Matthew Woodward Reply:

Hi,

A lot of article and wiki sites have disabled registration/article submission because of spam.

Great article as usual Matthew.

I am trying to follow all this process for a website of mine. Most of your links go to the home page, I image it is to make it simple for us, but how would you do it for inner pages? It is also important, isn’t it? You would create a new article for each inner page and spin it again? And then submit it? 100 links also?

And do I also have to buy the author bio program you mention some comments above? Can it be done with the best spinner?

What are your thoughts?

Thank you!

Hi Matt, Why don’t you use Captcha Sniper in Ultimate Demon?
Also, do you have the coupon code of Captcha Sniper? I get $20 discount if I buy from UD. If you also have, I’ll buy from you.

Reply

Matthew Woodward Reply:

Because it doesn’t support recaptcha and most of the sites UD posts to use recaptcha. Use http://www.matthewwoodward.co.uk/get/gsacaptchabreaker/ instead though its much better than CS

Reply

choikh Reply:

So, do you mean Captcha Breaker is better? I will use it for both GSA and UD. But UD seems doesn’t support Captcha Breaker

You can use it with any software that supports decaptcher or death by captcha including UD ^^

Hello Matthew,
you refer to “tier 1 links” and having 3 tiers of links that you are using ud for, but you say that the tier 1 links are linking to your blogspot url etc, so in effect there are 4 tiers below the money site, 3 tiers done by ud , which are below the web 2.0 etc i.e. blogspot, – is this correct ? and it doesnt mention anything about the web 2.0′s (or whatever terminology is used to describe them) when these would have to be done first in order for ud to be able to link to them – is that right ?

Reply

Matthew Woodward Reply:

Hi,

No tier 1 links only ever point to your money site and tier 1 is done by UD.

Tier 2 and tier 3 are done by GSA.

I think you need to watch video 1 again to refresh the theory

Hello Matthew,
At 3.25 minutes (3 minutes 25 seconds approx it says
‘we then have the web 2.0 properties its going to use e.g. yourdomain.blogspot.com”
and ud doesnt post to blogspot – so it infers and states that it is posting to tiers below the blogspot web 2.,o url .
I wasnt confused, i have taken this from your video.
ps
why dont you split the ud targets into high + low pr
or high + medium + low pr and use these as different tiers ?
(maybe add gsa as well ?)

Reply

Matthew Woodward Reply:

Hi,

That was just a subdomain example to people understand what that field actually creates.

Spliting it down in UD like that would create an unnatural looking profile. Watch the later videos, I use GSA :)

Hi Matt, when I check my links in UD, none of the directory links are showing. I checked the log and they all say “waiting on approval” or something along those lines. Is this normal? How long does the approval normally take for directory submissions?

Hi,

Are you doing it without proxies? I have heard of similar issue from someone else recently, might be worth checking in with UD support?

Vladimir Reply:

I use proxies like you suggested. I found out that for me is best to have footprints in a set like Elgg separatly from Jcow an so on. And then I run them in UD each set for themselves and receive good results.
It looks like my bandwidth or my computer is too slow. :)

Thanx for the help.

Some sites have like 2000 or 3000 links. To outrank them you create the same amount of links or more with UD?

Thank you

Hi Matthew,

very great guide!

I´m a SEO newbie and I just watched Part 3 once again and the following quisetion may Sound stupid. Butjust to be sure: You do not use the same spun article for the web 2.0 task and article directories task, do you? In my opinion otherwise there would be DC on the entire Tier 1 web 2.0 properties and the Tier 1 article directories.

Another question (very important for me): As I am going to become a german IM, is Ultimate Demon suited for german webprojects particularly with regard to the platforms supported by UD and especially with regard to T1 links?

I hope you (or other ones reading this) can give me some advice in this issue. Thanks to you and all the other ones answering.

Reply

Matthew Woodward Reply:

Hi Holger,

No – you use 1 on the web 2.0s, 1 on the ad/prs and 1 on the wikis.

Yes you can post german content without a problem, although some sites/admins may delete it on manual review.

Hi Matt,

I couldn’t find answer for those questions, or they were not clear enough for me:

1. Im planning to use the tiered link structure on a new website. You built in video 3 the tier 1 structure: http://imgur.com/Uom5TRd (screenshot off the links).

Sending something like 2000 links in 2 weeks (like you do in the screenshot) to of a website is in my opinion a big redflag for google? Why not building it up slowly?

2. Especially when you stop building those links when you hit the number one spot?

3. You say, you want to build every set of links to one main keyword, with deversity of anchor texts. Isn’t this also a red flag? Only the mainpage will have loads of links (Im planning to do this for an EMD) and my posts are just without links?

Hopefully you will clear up things a bit.

Reply

Matthew Woodward Reply:

Hi,

1) Well 2,000 over 2 weeks is only 142 per day. You have also have to account for around a 40% fail rate bringing it down to 85 a day ish.

2) Not sure if thats a question or statement?

3) Just create a new project for each page you want to rank

Followed your guide for the image spinning and UD is putting in my contextual links into my spun image HTML causing it all to break. Have you experienced this and do you know of any way to get around it?

e.g. if I have a certain keyword in the image alt area, and that keyword matches a contextual link KW, it will insert a link into the image alt area..

Reply

Matthew Woodward Reply:

Hi,

Is that because it is replacing ALT text? Just don’t have the same words set to replace as contextual links as you have in the alt text

Hi Matt,

Couple questions:

-Im running UD site detector for a couple days now (something like 50.000 urls done by now), but Im not getting any press releases detected. Do you have some advice for this?

-Also Im getting hardly a ‘video’ website detected, do you have advice for this? Because with this speed I need to detect websites for 3 months before I will get enough video websites to post to:(

-How to exactly run a google index check? You say you have to export the websites in UD. But when I export them as csv file (only possibility) I get it like this: 365liveradio.com,”WEB20″,”YOURJCOW”,”http://365liveradio.com”,”-1″,”-1″,”",”UNKNOWN”,”False”,”False”,”False”,”False”,”",”365liveradio.com”. Scrapebox is not working with this type of file. How do you get only the URL out of it?

Reply

Matthew Woodward Reply:

Hi,

You could just do a dedicated scrape for press release/video sites – perhaps try updated footprints from http://www.matthewwoodward.co.uk/reviews/ultimate-demon-review-tutorial/

Just open the CSV in excel, copy the domains/urls and paste into a txt file to index check with Scrapebox.

Hi Matthew, I have seen all these videos. You did so much handwork and effort on this stuff to help people out there. I just have a question. How can I compete my competitors? if they are also using the same software and same resources. I mean If I want to rank for a keyword, like “acne tips”. How Can I crush my competitors, I mean I am using GSA, SEnuke the other person also using GSA, and SEnuke, the third person using the same software even the whole world is using these software’s. So, How can I leave everybody behind to get the top spot.

Hi Matthew

Hi, Matthew. I just watched your video on Kontent Machine 3. How do its Tier 1 articles compare with your manually spun ones? Are they comparable or are manually spun ones much, much better?

Hey Matthew,

Can I just ask is it that important to remove sites that have not been indexed (according to the index tool in scrapebox)? If we create links on sites that have not been indexed will they not been seen once we start creating our tier 2 links later on?

Also, maybe some of the sites are not indexed at the moment but will be in the future. Will creating links on these non indexed sites hurt our site?

Reply

Matthew Woodward Reply:

I wouldn’t like to have a site link to my site if it wasn’t indexed in Google. Think of indexing as a quality indication. In general if its good enough to be in googles index, its probably good enough to link to your site.

When building web 2.0 with UMD will the one article per page be enough? It doesn’t seem very natural to me. (altough very convenient!)

Reply

Matthew Woodward Reply:

Thanks :)

The web 2.0s that UD builds aren’t traditional wen 2.0s like your thinknig. They are sites like elgg/jcow that allow users to contribute articles rather than fully dedicated sites on their own subdomain.
