Hi guys Matthew Woodward here and welcome to part 3 of the ultimate guide to tiered link building.
In this video I’m going to show you how to setup and schedule all of your tier 1 links over my shoulder.
I’m also going to show you some advanced spinning techniques that will help you stand out from the crowd and get more out of your campaigns as well as some of my personal tips and tricks which I know you’re going to love.
If you watched the last video then you should have prepared and spun-
- 3 x 500 word articles
- 1 set of social bookmark titles and descriptions
- 1 set of web directory titles and descriptions
- 1 set of related keywords and tags
- 1 video with titles and descriptions
- and imported all of your target sites into ultimate demon
If you don’t have all of this ready then get to work otherwise carry on watching.
Also in the last video we setup our global proxies, ping servers and captcha solving services so make sure you’ve done those before you carry on. Once you’ve done that on the projects tab here click new and name your project in this im going to call it video tutorial and press save.
Then open the project and the first thing we are going to do is create the web 2.0 sites so come up to task here, click on new select web 2.0 tasks and wait for that to open. Make that fullscreen and the first thing that we need to do is select sites that we want to post to. So to do that hit the green plus and just from the top here I’m going to scroll down and select a few hundred of them, that’ll do and click add.
The next thing that we need to do is add in our author bio and account information. So to do that you click the green plus here and let’s just maximise this and you can see that it’s already filled out a lot of the information that we need such as first name, last name and username and things like that. So we can come straight to e-mail here, click on the e-mail button and paste in the email address your going to use and our template in this case is live.com or hotmail. And that automatically fills in the mail servers for us and we put in the username and password and it’s always a good idea to test these settings before you continue. And as you can see that’s connected fine.
We then need to fill out the rest of the fields, as you can see the address information is already done. We have the miscellaneous section here which is used to fill out any author profiles on sites it signs up to where available. So let’s paste the author bio in, the title of our website, our website url for the phone number we can just hit the red dice button, the company name which I wouldn’t worry too much about just make sure it is well spun so it’s always unique and the job title just hit the red dice over here.
We then have the web 2.0 properties so the sub domain it’s going to use e.g. www.yourdomain.blogspot.com, the title of the web 2.0 property and the sub title of the web 2.0 property. I have already got all of that prepared, the sub domain you should try and use your keywords where possible so I’ve just got a list of keywords here with spaces removed and just tagged numbers on the end, spin some numbers in.
The main title again that should be well spun, here I’ve just used a one line example but you should probably be 3 or 4 sentences deep and spin that out. And the sub title and once you’ve got all of that in place you can just press save.
So now we’ve selected the sites that we are going to post to and we have setup our account profile. The last thing that we need to do is paste in our article for submission but before we do that there are a couple of things that we need to do. Because we are posting to web 2 sites we can actually include images and videos in our posts. It takes a bit more time to prepare but it does make your posts look less spammy, improves the overall uniqueness and gives the link more weight in Google’s eyes.
So if you head over to Google Images and just tap in your keyword and hit enter. That’ll return lots of images that we can use in our blog post, but here’s a little trick. Most of these are going to be to big when you post them on your blog so they are going to overlap and not look very good at all. So a trick I use is if you come down to any size here and click medium, and then in the URL you can see where it says I S Z which I guess means is size colon M. If we change that M to and S and hit enter we actually get lots of small images and these are going to be of dimensions around 200×300 and so forth.
So what we need to do is open as many of these in a new tab as possible, about 50 or 60 in total just for this example I’m going to show you how I do it with a few so we’ll open a few up like that and then we can close the image search and across here full size image and we can skip through the tabs clicking full size image. And as you can see we’ve now got some images that we can use in our web 2 submissions. To export all of these urls you could go through and copy and paste them all but there’s a nice little firefox add-on called URL Lister which just gives you a list of the URLs of all your open tabs. So we will copy that and keep it somewhere safe.
Now we just need a list of YouTube video URLs so if we come across to YouTube, search for payday loans and open a couple of these in new tabs. You’re going to need about 50 videos in total, I’m only going to do a few to show you the process. Pause the videos before they start annoying me. Ok, and then again it’s just URL lister and we don’t want that top one we just want these 3 here and put those somewhere safe.
To do that first of all we need to come back to excel and remove everything except the unique video ID that you can see here. So if we make a copy of that, hit ctrl + f and replace that with nothing and we get a list of the video ID’s there. So looking at the code here we can see that the first part of the code needs to be this line right up until the unique video ID. So that means these need to go in this column and we can paste that in there. Then we need to select from here right up until the unique video ID again, copy. And then the next part of the code is the unique video ID which we already have here so just paste those there. And the final bit of the code is this. So now if we do equals, that and that, and that, and that you will see this outputs this code here. Which you can see is identical to the code before the only difference are the unique video ID’s here.
So once you have that you can fill these down and you will need a list of about 50 of these I’ve only done 3 as an example. So if we make a copy of these and bring it into The Best Spinner, paste it in we can select all, spin together and choose not to include a blank paragraph. And you’ll see here this spins out a different video each time. So make a copy of this and let’s put it somewhere safe because we’ll need it later and now we can move onto preparing the images.
So let me show you how I go about preparing spun images for use in our articles. I actually have a template that I created a while ago that looks like this and it randomly assigns a border, randomly aligns it left and right and it randomly move the html elements around completely. So if we look at a spun article you can see here it goes in order of src, border and align click new spin, border, align, source, border, align source again. Alt, border, src, align and so forth. So you can see how just spinning the HTML elements there helps with uniqueness and moves things around. It might not make a difference but I like to spin everything that I can and that’s just one thing that is really easy to spin. So I’ll include this template underneath the video for you and I’ll show you how to go about using it right now.
So if you paste this into your preferred text editor, we are first going to replace all of the src equals bits. So to do that we need come and get our list of our images, copy them into The Best Spinner, paste and then spin them all together without a blank paragraph and if we just cut that and come back into our text editor we can then do replace src equals and replace it with our list of spun images there. So you can see src equals. Hit replace all and you can see what that’s done there and the next bit is the alt tags and to use that we are going to reference our list of keywords that we created earlier. So let me just open those one moment, there they are ok so we select all again bring them into The Best Spinner, paste, select all, spin together, no, cut, back to our text editor and this time we are going to replace alt equals with alt equals list of our keywords, close that off and hit replace all.
So to check it works if we copy it all into the best spinner and have a look at the spun article and we can see img, border equals 1, align left, src equals with a link to the image. Let’s check one with the alt tag, there we go payday loans scams, border. So that is how we prepare the spun elements of our images, so if we take that, cut it out, bring it back to our spreadsheet, paste it there for safe keeping.
Now select your video and images, copy those and bring them across to The Best Spinner, paste them in, select all, spin together but this time we want to include a blank paragraph in the spin so click yes. Now what this had done, it has spun the video embed code and the image embed code and a blank paragraph. So a third of the time we are going to see an image, a third of the time we are going to see a video and a third of the time we are going to see nothing. And then we can use this base set of spun images and video and blanks to help fill out our articles a bit. So make a copy of this somewhere safe, I’m just going to make a copy of it in my text editor here and now we can go about adding this into our article.
So open up article 1 that you prepared earlier and you can see here that I’ve not sentence spun this or anything in fact this is just auto generated content that I’m using for the purpose of this video tutorial. So ignore the fact that it’s not sentence spun, its only done on the word/phrase level and it makes no sense at all its just for the purpose of this video. So if we take our spun block of video and images and blanks and copy that we can just randomly insert that in-between a paragraph obviously your going to have 50 videos and 50 images to choose from so you might choose to include that block twice. Really what I’ve done here just take as a guideline, think out of the box there’s loads more things that you can do with this you can just have a video block here or a just images down here, or videos and images here just let your mind run wild with the possibilities of how you can spin images and videos into your content.
But once you’ve done that then all you need to do is add the backlinks into your article itself. So first of all let’s find our keyword highlighted and see where we can insert our links. That looks like a good one, advanced payday loan online so a href equals, and close that off there. And add your website in there and probably spin that a little bit to really diverse the anchor text that we use and we bring that back to our text editor there so our link is going to use a wide range of anchor texts, cash advance online, payday loan on the net, payday cash loan on the web, payday loan on the net. So while these terms are all relevant to payday loans we are not overly spamming the exact match anchor text that penguin’s been penalising people for. So make sure that you mix your anchor texts up like that.
And don’t forget when you have sentence spun something you will actually need to insert the link 3 times, once into the first sentence, once into the second alternative sentence and once into the third alternative sentence to make sure that you link appears on every output of the spin so remember to do that its important.
So now we can come back to Ultimate Demon and paste in the article that we have just finished preparing. So the title can go there and then the article body down here and then we can just put in a list of your related keywords. You can spin these if you want to, you probably should but for this video I’m not going to. Also it’s worth talking about the contextual links here, now what Ultimate Demon allows you to do is add a niche set of links based on keywords and urls. So we could enter a big long list of keywords all to do with payday loans and cash advance loans and everything like that and then enter a list of relevant links that we’ve scraped from scrapebox and once you’ve done that, when Ultimate Demon is posting the articles you can tell it to randomly insert any number of your contextual links as well as your actual link that we actually include in the article. Think I’ve lost where it’s at, there it is.
So taking advantage of these contextual links helps make your link building look a bit more natural because all of your 1 links are not just linking to your site, they are linking to your site and other relevant sites based on the keywords here. I’m not going to take you through setting this up, it’s just a case of loading scrapebox up with a load of keywords, scraping some URL’s and then dropping them into this window here, clicking save. I usually pick to randomly insert between 1 and 3 contextual links but play with this number there is no really set rule for it it’s just another way to help increase the uniqueness of your articles and make things blend in a little more so it’s not overly obvious you are just promoting yourself and no one else in the links that you build.
And last but not least are the project settings here, so task name I like to keep things nice and organised so I’m going to call them Tier 1 – Web 2 we are going to schedule them for later, retry the submission 5 times after 20 minutes and verify the account confirmation emails after 60 minutes and we are going to stop on roughly 100 completed items. We are going to schedule the task over 14 days and spread that evenly, enable account protection and bring the submission speed down to the average.
So once we click save this will automatically schedule 100 of our web 2 submissions over the next 14 days and we can move on to setting up the other types of links.
Next we are going to prepare the article directory submission pretty much in the same way. New task, this time select article task, make this full screen, select sites. This time we need to add a comma separate list of categories so loans, money, finance, business and choose set category. I’m going to select a few hundred of these again, that’ll do click on add and wait for it to add those through. Then come across and add our account profile, fill it in exactly the same way as we did before and I’m going to pause the video and fill it out quickly because it’s pretty boring.
Ok so all of that’s filled out, hit save and we’ll just come across here and make sure we are using the right account profile which we are. And then it’s just a case of pasting in our title, summary, body, resource box and keywords so I’m going to do that quickly one moment. Ok I’ve filled all of that out, don’t forget to include your link in the resource box don’t include any links in the article body but do make sure you come to the contextual links area and use this drop down to pick your niche and randomly insert 0 to 2 contextual links. Where possible Ultimate Demon will submit articles with links in the body. Some directories allow this, some don’t but Ultimate Demon actually takes care of this for us anyway.
And then last but not least, again up to task name, keep things nice and organised Tier 1 – Article Directories, excuse my spelling there we go. Schedule for later, retry 5 times after 20 minutes, verify the e-mails after an hour, stop on roughly 100 completed items and we are going to schedule it over 14 days, enable account protection and bring submission speed to the average and just hit save.
So now the web 2 and the article directories are setup, next we are going to do that bookmarks so if we click on new, bookmark task. Select sites as we did before, enter our categories separated by commas. general, new, misc, set category and I’m going to select a few hundred of these again. Ooop not 2000 of them, or that many, there that’s a better number and click add. Then straight up to the green plus here so we can setup our account profile, that’s pretty much already setup we just need to hit the drop down box to get our email which I’ve now put in there and click save. Oops its having a think about that, ok and just come over here and double check that’s the right email and profile to be using which it is and when we come over to this window it works a little differently than the others.
First of all we need to add our money site I’m just going to use Google as an example, click on start and that automatically goes out and scrapes the current title, description and tags from the page but you should have already prepared your own set of bookmark titles, descriptions and tags which you just need to copy and paste in here. So I’m going to pause the video and do that quickly. Ok I have filled all of that out and up to the project settings here Tier 1 bookmarks, you should know the drill by now. Schedule for later, retry 5 times after 20 minutes, verify emails after an hour, stop on roughly 100 completed items, schedule over 14 days, spread evenly, account protection enabled and bring that down to the average and hit save.
Now all you need to do is repeat the entire process that you’ve just seen for the Wiki’s, press releases, the directories and the videos. I’m not going to step you through every single one of those because it will take all day and it’s pretty much the same process regardless of which task you’ve done. So I’m going to go ahead and set all of those up and I’ll be back once there done. Ok so now you can see that I’ve finished setting up the rest of the project its only taken about 10 minutes to do in total and you can see it’s already started to submit some of the tasks and work its way through those.
Over the next 2 weeks Ultimate Demons going to be building out our diverse tier 1 link profile which we can then use a solid base to build our tier 2 links to. All we need to do in the mean time is sit back and relax.
In the next video I’m going to show you how to export a live list of your links and check they are still live and valid. How to automatically generate all of the content you need for tiers 2 and 3 at the click of a button as well as exploring advanced spinning techniques such as character spinning, precisely how and where to use that content for the best results and how to setup and fully automate tier 2 and 3 link building forever in 10 minutes flat.
