Link Building Series

Every website needs backlinks (votes) to win the "popularity contest" and appear at the top of the search results. Remember, only building links is not enough, we also need great Onpage SEO and a decent social presence. Links are a major part of the ranking algorithm though so this is a very important series to watch.

Hosting Your PBNs

After scraping your domains using Xenu (or any other method) you will need to host your domains on unique hosting accounts to ensure you don't leave a footprint with Google. Some people like to get multiple hosting accounts but there is an alternative and Ranking Rabbit's new favourite method is Easy Blog Networks. Their hosting is closed to the general public at the moment but we managed to get back-door access which you can access HERE. In this video watch as I setup a new blog on this host and then show some steps to creating additional pages to make your blog look more "real".

Optimising Your PBNs

Continuing on from the previous video watch as I get my articles back from ineedarticles and set up the blog including optimising each of the post to give me maximum relevancy for my PBNs. I discuss setting up RSS feeds, optimising your images and creating video sitemaps too.

Closeout Domains

Twice a week we post domains in the Facebook group directly from the Godaddy auctions. These domains are known as "Closeout" domains because they were not bought at auction and are soon to be expired. A number of decent domains slip through the auction's net which means there's a number of domains with good metrics to be found. Check the Facebook group every week to see the domains posted. It's normally on a Tuesday & Friday.
