    • August 29th, 2012 at 10:18 pm

      No there will be one more in this series and then I'm going to cover some other stuff, like how I semi automate guestposting and so other tidbits. Got a surprise or two lined up over the next month as well 😉

  4. Rex Stan

      There are a few decent xrumer tutorials out there if you look around, loads on youtube mate

    • August 30th, 2012 at 6:17 pm

      I have xrumer but haven't kept up my subscription used it back in the day for direct linking my money site with forum profiles, there are some good xrumer tutorials on BHW –

    • August 30th, 2012 at 6:18 pm

      Is there no way to live link on these FB comments Matt?

    • August 31st, 2012 at 9:06 am

      Tbh I thought they did live link :S

    • September 12th, 2012 at 10:54 pm

      Matt, as Michael has mentioned forum profiles above, could you clarify if it is acceptable to still use these, I have used large numbers of profiles pointing to videos pointing to my articles on my website and this has worked well prior to penguin, I can switch to web2.0 as suggested, but wanted to know if the use of profiles is still acceptable and how to use them now post penguin?

    • September 13th, 2012 at 11:48 am

      Hey Matt, as Michael mentioned forum profile backlinks, thought to ask your opinion of them post penguin, and whether they can be in used in one of the layers and what volume, but ran into problems with these recently with our site getting slapped ?

    • September 13th, 2012 at 2:27 pm


      Personally I dont use them anymore

  5. Anonymous

    Is it me or does video start breaking up 5 mins in?

    Also Matt, why don't you allow normal WP comments on your blog, I have some detailed questions on tiered backlinking I would like to ask, i.e would you carry out this one campaign for only 1 url on your money site, or would you link tier1 to many url's on your money site, sorry but you didn't make this clear from the first vid. By the way great tutorial you are a natural teacher and thanks for all the effort you put into this, I have all the tools, apart from CS and LWB, which I will get from you link when I decide to go for them.

    • August 31st, 2012 at 9:06 am

      I would for the most part only link to one page on the money site but mixing it up here and there wont hurt.

      I like the Facebook comment system better, looks pretty n stuff :)

      Thanks for your kind words I've never tried to teach before and this is new territory for me, glad it has helped you out :)

    So Guestbook psoting will be in the next video (I show you how to do it with Scrapebox/GSA in the tutorial)?

  8. Hardvard Andrew

    do you index all link in 1 time? not with drip feed?

    • September 10th, 2012 at 7:02 am

      I just index the lowers the tiers which will auto index the upper tiers over a period of time

  9. Luke Ilechuku

    Matt, do you normally use a VPS? Is there a VPS service you could recommend?

    • September 13th, 2012 at 2:26 pm

      Hi Luke,

      I self host everything but had good experience with in the past – they look expensive but look at the discount codes under the prices.

      They are on 1gbps line as well ^^

    • Luke Ilechuku
      September 14th, 2012 at 1:56 pm

      Matt, many thanks for that. I think I saw that site recently in the PPP WSO so I've been looking at that one. Didn't know about the discount codes though; will check if those are for life.

      When you say you self host, how does that work? Is it a spare PC in your home office? That's the other possible option I'm looking at.

    • September 17th, 2012 at 9:54 pm

      Yeah its just a couple of machines in the office that I remote into, nothing special at all but I'm on a 24 meg line which performs consistently which helps although I think I'm going to need a VPS or two soon looking at the project I've just mapped out

  10. Spencer Padway

    When do you do the guestbook/comment indexing? Since linkwheel bandit never ends, how long do you wait before going through with that?

    • September 15th, 2012 at 10:37 am

      Just leave LWB running for a week or two, you can click on the projects to see how many of the tiers it has built out.

      • October 1st, 2013 at 12:45 am

        Great info. Do you just let Scrapebox continuously make comments on blogs (since you said that you have 3+ million entries on your master list)? I mean, don’t stop until there are 3+ million comments to your Tiers 2, 3, and 4? Is this correct? Thanks.

  11. Rex Stan

    Thanks for all your tutorials. In response to your reply to Luke. What do you mean by you self host..can you plese shed more light on that. Also regarding xrumer, I have searched all through the internet and non seem to deal with guestbook posting. Would you still be making a video on using Xrumer for guestbook posting (your tutorials are the best)?

  12. Rex Stan

    Thanks for the link I have watched the videos and iv got a hang of it now. Regarding self host, do you mind sharing all that you use. I'd prefer self-hosting to paying for a server to host my softwares.. please matt share what sort of computers you use, the web connection/broadband service you use (im equally here in the Uk) and anything else that will help.


    • October 2nd, 2012 at 11:48 am

      Hi Rex,

      I just use a couple of old machines – I think one is something like a dual core x2 with a couple gig of ram and the other is an old core 2 duo with 4gb of ram on a 24meg line although recently I have started to use VPS's again as i'm running my home based machines/bandwidth at near 100% capacity.

    • Rex Stan
      October 3rd, 2012 at 7:28 pm

      Thanks for the headsup.I really enjoy coming back to your blog.. A couple of questions though.Iv got a couple of machines myself (2 to be precise) and i have upped their ram, what internet provider/package would you recommend in the Uk {BT, Sky or Virgin}that would allow me pump all the threads i can without any complaints or getting banned. Also, do you make use of proxies {public or private}and vpn's to protect your IP..


    • October 4th, 2012 at 4:50 pm

      Hi Rex,

      I'm with Be broadband who used to offer an unlimited 24meg package but don't anymore although my friend just got his installed and is running near to that anyway :S

      I use 50x semi dedicated private proxies from

    • Rex Stan
      October 9th, 2012 at 9:52 pm

      Thanks mate. i really do appreciate your being open with the resources you make use of. i was able to find some broadband provider on moneysupermarket that offer 24meg.gonna try one and see what happens.

    Hi Matt,

    What is your opinions on using indexing programs/services like Lindexed?

    • November 2nd, 2012 at 9:45 am

      Waste of time & money – just build more links to them

    Hi Matt, thank you for having this around mate! I'm sure we could benefit from all of it.

  18. Marcus Ochoa

    Thanks for the video Matthew! Where can I find someone that I can pay to do all of this for me if I don't have the time? Do you have a service that you offer?

    • November 21st, 2012 at 10:10 am

      I dont offer a service sorry and only work on a consultancy basis – I could put together a strategy for you covering the setup of the system as well as any required technical/human resources to implement this so you still have full control over what happens without doing any of the work etc

    Hi Matt, You are really the man! Thanks so much for the in-depth tutorials. One thing though for me is that I have not been able to access or download any of the foot prints and many other resources you mentioned in the video. I have shared the video by going to share and inbed but still can't get the link to download the mentioned resources. Please help me. I need them, in particular, the image spinning template, the auto approve list and the scrapebox foot prints. Once a gain thanks so much!

    • November 30th, 2012 at 11:09 am

      Thanks for your kind words

      Drop me an email and I'll send them all over to you – not sure why its not working for you =

  20. Brent

    Thanks mate! This was probably the best tutorial I have seen (and I have seen many over the years).

    One question. Why did you have the LWB post an article every hour? Isn’t that like overkill? And wouldn’t you run out of unique articles at some point? I saw you only loaded 52 in LWB. At the rate of every hour, that would run out pretty darn fast!

    Also, for the target URL’s, does LWB create separate pyramids for each target URL? If you load 10 target URLS, does that mean, 10 separate pyramids?

    Thanks again for putting in the time and effort to teach the rest of us. Now take down the videos, so it remains a secret! :)

    • January 17th, 2013 at 8:54 am


      Because the link structures it makes are massive and if it wasn’t posting every hour it would take months. The 52 articles I loaded are all super high spun content.

      No it just creates one monster pyramid across all of the URLs

      I’m just playing with LWB 2 now – very impressive so far!

      • Brent
        January 17th, 2013 at 10:46 pm

        Yeah, I’m playing around with it as well.

        Maybe its a question that should be directed at the developers, but posting one article every hour means to each property? And is there a way we can export all the built links?

        not to worry, I will give your reference when I contact the developers with my questions. You have pushed their product better than them!

        • January 18th, 2013 at 7:59 am


          Yes I believe that is the case. You can export reports in the File menu.

          Haha the dev is a cool guy – but he is a dev and not a marketer :)

  21. choikh

    Hi Matt,
    Can you share how do you find the auto approve blog list in you use in scrapebox?

    • May 26th, 2013 at 10:51 am

      A quick and easy way it to just take them from forums, merge them all together, do an outbound link check and remove any that are majorly spammed

      • choikh
        May 26th, 2013 at 11:20 am

        What do you mean by an outbound link check?
        Can I do this in ScrapeBox?

        • May 27th, 2013 at 8:26 am


          Yes look in the addons section for the link checker tool. Basically if its got 4,000 outbound links, dont use it 😛

  22. Chris

    1.) Just curious on whether you purposely left out adding the “Target URL’s” in Scrapebox for teaching ‘Lazarus’ platform when posting?

    2.) Your awesome, btw I bought CS from you, will be purchasing UD, LWB, Inspyder from you. SB, GSA I already have, also I should’ve held out on Backlink Beast as they don’t have a drip feed option and don’t post to nearly as many as UD does.

  23. nicholgm

    Hi Matt, you did’nt really go into detail about where you got the lazarus list from. Could you please elaborate?

    • July 12th, 2013 at 9:51 am


      Just search ‘autoapprove list’ in Google, filter for discussions – eat your heart out!

  24. Andrew Edmonds

    Curious. When you check that tier2 links point to tier1 and create a tier2 found list, shouldn’t you use that new list when checking tier 3 links instead of your original tier2, else you may end up spending time indexing tier 3 links that point to tier2 when the tier 2 no longer point to tier1.

    Does that make sense?

  25. watekungsik

    Hi Matt,

    How long would you run the guestbook in GSA? And can I update the new tier 2 & 3 url in the same project?

  26. Waseem

    is their an alternative to link wheel ?

    • September 18th, 2013 at 11:54 am

      No its the only tool of its kind but you can do without it

  27. 10.6.2013

    Hi Matt, I’ve been trying to decide between Captcha Sniper and Captcha Breaker (of GSA fame). I’m curious: Besides price what made you pick CS over CB?

  28. 10.7.2013

    Hi Matt. I’m doing your Scrapebox (purchased with your link, BTW) blog comments right now. I have 2.5 million blogs to comment on, and it seems like 10% is going through so that once it gets done, I’ll conceivably have 250,000 comments. My question is, Do I have to do the guestbook submission IN ADDITION to my comment blasts or is it optional–like you can do one but not the other, etc.? Thanks.

    • October 8th, 2013 at 10:22 am


      Scrapebox doesn’t have an affiliate program but thank you anyway :)

      The guestbook stuff is optional but blast away with anything on those lower tiers!

      • October 8th, 2013 at 3:17 pm

        Thanks for the info. Scrapebox doesn’t have an affiliate link? Haha. Don’t I feel like a pandering a-hole. But seriously I did buy something with your link. Captcha Sniper maybe? Forgot what it was. Anyways, keep up the good work!

        • October 9th, 2013 at 10:19 am

          Haha I don’t care if you bought through my link or not, as long as its helped you out f*** everything else :)

  29. Nitin

    Hi Matthew! I am a great follower of you, and I must say you are one of the few whom I can call “G** of SEO”. As I have yet to understand, do Link wheels work as good as Link Pyramids? Can I get penalised using Link Wheels? Can you do a tutorial on link wheels using web 2.0s. Just the basics, and the advantages as well as the disadvantages. Not an actual tutorial using a software.

    • October 23rd, 2013 at 1:46 pm

      Thanks very much :)

      No you should stay away from link wheels – they worked a lot better a few years back :)

      • Nitin
        October 24th, 2013 at 2:27 am

        Okay, I shall stay away from it! Thanks Matthew!

  30. Chris

    Hi Matt, loving the videos I have a few questions do I need all the products you use? I mean is their not one piece of software that does it all?

  31. Sal

    Hello Matthew, your kick a** man!!! Needed to learn about link building desperately and you have provided me with a lot of knowledge thank you very very much. One question I would like to ask is once you have submitted your first round of links, tier 1, 2, 3, you say rinse and repeat, now does that mean that you submit to the same sites again in ultimate demon?

  32. 4.17.2014

    Hi Matt

    1, The TIERD LINK BUILDING IS the same as link wheel?

    2, Should I link all Tier 1 pages with one way link?

    • April 18th, 2014 at 9:51 am


      1) No – use google image search to spot the different

      2) not sure what you mean

  33. 10.1.2014

    Hi Matt,
    I am now watching your tutorials, and Link Wheel Bandit links seems to be broken ? how can I get the software ?
