Advanced Web 2.0 guide: A Complete Ranking Strategy

advanced web 2.0 guide
Written by Evan Derek

If you’re on this page from a Search Engine, you probably already know what Web2.0’s are, and are just confused a bit about it. Or if you’re here directly from Social Media then there’s a possibility that you don’t know what Web2.0’s are, well in any case let me take the liberty of explaining what it is in brief to you.

10 years ago, the guys who started their blogs or sites, didn’t have to worry about rankings. All they had to do was, write a post, and forget about it and it was ranked.

Well, it isn’t the case anymore, back in that age there was no competition, yes almost 0 competition for most of the keywords, and that’s why those blogs are ranking even today because they acquired their rankings at a time when there wasn’t competition + they now have a domain age of around 10-12 years, right?

But now, that just simply won’t work. Writing a quality post is good, and as Neil Patel says, content length is one of the most important aspects of getting content ranked too, but writing a “quality, long post” and waiting for it to rank in Google in the next 231223 days isn’t really the best success strategy out there.

And backlinks don’t work anymore, atleast not those typical “Hey Admin, Great post, really liked it” kind of comments. You need to take it up a notch.

Before reading this 3800 words+ guide, let me tell you a secret, read the guide in full and by no means miss the “Over to you” section, that’s the last one, I’ve got something special for you over there.

What Are Web2.0’s, and why you need them ?

A very good question indeed, and I always feel it’s better to start from the bottom. So…

what are web 2.0 sites

Web 2.0’s are just websites, websites built on Free, high Authority, Top level domains, which let you build your site on a subdomain on the TLD . You get your site for “Free” that’s the best part about it. These sites function on User Generated Content, meaning these sites let users create, edit and generate the content for the platforms.

A good example is something.blogspot.com, the user or the owner generates the content and manages the site right?

That was “what” web2.0’s are. But why do you need them? What’s special in them? The specialty is, Web2.0’s Gain authority super fast! Meaning, if you know how to do it, then your Web2.0 will gain immense authority in no time, and then you can pass a lot of other metrics, including the authority and trust to your primary site.

Another reason why Web2.0’s are my favorite is, these links are extremely powerful, that being said, you are the owner, and in-charge of the backlinks you give yourselves from the Web2.0’s, and not any other third person.

I’ll explain the benefits later, but for now it’s safe to say that Web2.0’s are like owning a Condo, rather then renting an apartment.(Wow, my examples have begun to be impressive ! Just kidding )

Okay so for the time being, you now know that Web2,0’s work, they can greatly boost your SERP ( if done right, ofcourse. And that’s exactly what I’m covering in this piece) , and that they’re free! Right?

But hey sweet talks don’t prove anything, right?  so here’s a Live example for you to show how easily you can rank your Web 2.0, and as you might already be knowing, if you get a do-follow backlink from a Google top result, your SERP is going to be skyrocketed !

Web2.0 ranking a site.,

See? Those blogspot blogs are ranking super high (4th and 5th position ) for such a broad and profitable keyword. And I can write it down for you that, those links are for sure passing some link juice to another site.

So now probably you do believe that it does work ! Right?

What treasures do Web 2.0’s hold for you :

Why should you invest your time and efforts into Web2.0’s? I mean after all they’re just subdomains, right? A total waste of time. Think Again !

  • Fast Authority:- First of all, because of their strong “parent domains”, they acquire authority quite fast. Meaning you can get your Web2.0 ranked on the first page of Google in less then a week if you know how to do it right.
  • Free:- Secondly, they are free ! Normally, people have to pay hundreds of dollars to get a single do-follow link from a Top ranking keyword domain, right? But in this case, you can get your Web2.0 ranked, and then pass a link to yourself totally free !
  • No limit:- How many do-follow backlinks would a guy owning a Top rank on google for any certain keyword give you? One ? Two? Three? Not more then that for sure, but guess what, with your Web2.0’s, you can pass out as many links as you wish to !
  • No Penalty, Ever ! :- This is the best of all the above ! One of the major drawbacks when you go for PBN’s or Web2.0’s is that, you’re afraid that you’ll be hit by the next Google update that rolls out, well guess what, this isn’t the case anymore. Why? If an update rolls out, and you’re hit by the penalty, all you’ve to do is, delete the links, simple right?
  • You’re the Boss:- This is just like a summary of all the above points. You control the backlinks, their number, their diversity and when and how to edit or remove them.

So that was about it. How about getting some real shit done? I’ll show you how to create a Web2.0 on tumblr, and then you can follow the same steps, on all the other Web2.0’s you want to create, cause the basic layout is about the same on all of them.

Creating a Tumblr Web2.0

Go to Tumblr, and SignUp (Which is pretty easy, and free ! )

Now, after completing the SignUp process, you’d be taken to your dashboard, which would be looking something like shown below. Focus on the option highlighted in the screenshot.

tumblr account

Yes, you need to click on the small [+] button, that’s the button to create a new Tumblr blog.

After clicking on it, you’d be taken to this page, where you need to play the real game. So let’s work on filling the form up…

3

So, fill in a title, and a URL. For now, just take this as an example, worry not I’ll be explaining the whole science behind selecting the right keywords and title and getting your blog ranked in the coming up sections . This is just to explain that you have to make use of your Title, and URL in those fields.

For eg. in the above post I am making the Web2.0 for my latest, 7000 word long, detailed article on Affiliate Marketing Guide, ( Which apparently was also appreciated by Neil Patel in his comments !) . So I’m keeping the URL and Title related to the keyword I’m targeting, right?

So that’s it, you click on Create Blog option, and your blog is all set and running.

Ofcourse you need to fill in new content, but that’s a whole different story, this above part was just a basic sneak-peak into what you’re going to do and where to start. So once you’ve created the blog your Web2.0 is ready, now we can move on to more pressing matters.

“Get it ranked” kind of Content-science for your Web2.0’s.

This is the most important part of all, the content.

This is what will decide the fate of your 2.0, and your keyword. So here’s what kind of content exactly you need for your 2.0, and where to get it from.

Just getting an EMD URL, and setting the keywords won’t work, you need to work hard to make Google actually believe that it’s a legit site and worth getting ranked. As I already said, it’s not 2000 anymore, so it’s harder to fool Google right now.

So the best way to fool the Search Engine Giant, is to not fool it. Didn’t get me? Meaning, instead of “pretending” to work hard, actually do work hard, actually make your 2.0 worth getting ranked and it will be ranked, simple as that. Although there are shortcuts and that’s what I’m discussing over here.

Keep the below discussed factors in mind when next working on your 2.0 and everything should be fine!

Unique Content:-

No matter if it’s long term, short term, Event blog or a niche site. Nothing beats your competition like Unique content. So, get google what it’s hungry for.

The point is, Google just loves Unique content, content that has not been seen anywhere. I know it’s a bit hard to come up with Unique ideas and sentences and research for each and every post, but try to atleast keep it as fresh as possible.

Content Length & No. of posts:-

You don’t need to write Essays on the certain keyword, you just need enough content to make the site look legit, and not something short term.

As you might already know, content length is a major ranking factor, but you don’t need 5000 word long articles to rank a Web2.0’s nope.

300-500 Word articles are fine ! Yes, but they need to be good enough, don’t worry by the end of this section you’ll understand what “good enough” means for a Web2.0

And try to include atleast 4- 5 articles on every 2.0 , this gives google the idea that it isn’t just a site you created with a piece of content, and left forever, instead that it’s a real site with some page weight atleast.

Related Keywords:-

Ever heard about LSI ? Or the Rankbrain update?

If yes, then good you can ignore this section, if not keep reading. Rankbrain update from Google was just the update which made Google almost into an A.I (Artificial Intelligence)

Meaning, now Google can detect which word means what, what are the similar keywords of that keyword, in short it can sense what you’re talking about.

And after this update, Keyword stuffing was almost banned. Using the same keyword again and again now hurts the pages, more than it helps. So instead, switch to LSI.

Meaning, switch to related keywords, don’t worry Google will understand it.

For eg. if you need to target “ Make Money”, you can use keywords like “Get rich”, “financial stability” etc, because they all technically mean the same thing, right? And google has the power to detect it.

So instead of stuffing your article, start using related keywords . ( And hey, this isn’t just about Web 2.o’s, you should start doing this on your long term blogs too.)

Build Authority:-

This is the part that will tell Google that your site is rankable, that the data you’ve put is worth trusting and it isn’t just another ghost story you spun up by yourself.

For that, you need to link to  high authority sites, sites like Wikipedia, Google News etc from within your article.

Well, if you’re writing a fact about something, always try to incorporate Data, Quotes, or Images, and use sentences like  ” according to Wikipedia, 98% of ………” and in that sentence, insert your link to that site.

It’s a clear indicator that you’ve proof of what you’re writing, and Google trusts such kind of sites, so make good use of it.

Some sites you can outlink to:-

  • Wikipedia
  • Lifehacker
  • forbes
  • HuffingtonPost
  • About.com

Photos , Images & Videos:-

Anybody can copy paste hundreds of articles a day, well that won’t just work here.

It’s important, that you integrate some Media files, like images or videos with your articles on the 2.0’s . This tells Google that your pieces aren’t full of all crap, and they have a variety of formats, making it more trust worthy.

Infact, you’re going to get considerable amount of traffic even on your Web2.0, so in order to avoid pogo sticking In case you don’t know, Pogo Sticking is when users arrive on a site, and hit the back button because the content wasn’t relevant, or interesting, which is a negative ranking metric) you need to make sure that the page looks interesting and worth reading.

Another aspect to keep in mind while integrating media files on your articles is, don’t follow the same pattern every time, like don’t always just include a cover image, and an image in the next paragraph. Instead, break this up. If you’re including an image, in an article on the first paragraph, include one in the last, in the next article.

Do it as you wish, the only point is, diversify it, make it look different and real.

So, that was about what kind of content you should put, but just content can’t get you ranked either. ( Ah duh ! I thought it was easy! ) always keep in mind that, there’s nothing called free bread, so there are certain other angles you need to cover before actually making your web 2,0 live, and scrapping the benefits off it.

Getting the 2.0’s Indexed !

Hey guess what, those multimedia things will help you get indexed faster too ! Specially if you include a video in there, I don’t exactly know why it’s so, but maybe Videos are a priority for Google, so make sure there’s atleast 1 video content in the articles.

And additionally, tweet your 2.0’s on your twitter, no matter how absurd it sounds , it does get it indexed immediately.

Update your Web 2.0’s Regularly

I said you need 4-5 posts minimum on the 2.0′,s right? But make sure you don’t create all of them in a day, it will just be a waste. Instead, 1 post on a 2.0 in the week is fine, this way by the end of a month you’ll have completed a 2.0, and in a natural way.

Also it would tell Google that the site has not been forgotten about, and is frequently updated.

You can also post more posts, and update it more frequently, but the point is you have to keep the trend up, yes Google monitors it. Meaning, if you create 4 posts today, and leave the site for a month, even a 5th grader can identify it as spam.

So just keep the continuity, if you’re posting 2 posts a day in a week, make sure you do so for the whole month, or till the site gets ranked.

Important Pages to Create for your Web 2.0

It’s not just the content that can make your Web2.0 Google famous, there certainly are other aspects you can’t ignore. And these aspects are important, not only for your 2.0’s, but also for your long term blogs.

There are certain pages that you blog must have, in order to prove that it’s not a scam, or a short term blog rather a long one.

  • About Us Page
  • Contact Page
  • Privacy Policy

About Us Page-

You already know what an About US page is, right? It’s the page that contains your story or probably about your company. It’s an indicator for Google that there is a real guy who’s responsible for the contents on the site and that it’s not another anonymous site.

Hey wait, you can’t just go along and write “Hey Guys, I’m Mr x. and I was born at place Y” in all the about us pages, you need to keep it clean too, clean and diversified, and here’s how to do it.

  • Names:– While creating your web2.0, don’t use the same name on every Web2.0 . This tells Google that the same owner is not operating those sites, and so it’s not a scam. But using the same name would definitely trigger a spam alert.
  • Picture:- Make sure there atleast is one picture of you ( or just about any picture, because Google doesn’t have eyes), but make sure the Image is named something like:- AboutUsImage.jpg , yourname.jpg. Meaning, if you’re just putting any random picture of a cat or a dog, it doesn’t matter, but make sure it sounds like wpengineteam.jpg or in my case, Evan.jpg , the relevancy of the image name to the URL or the Web2.0 keyword confirms to Google that your About page contains an image, and it’s either your or your companies.

Again the point is, include whatever you like, just make sure it looks real.

Contact Page:-

Guess what? Contact pages are more important then you think ! Not having a contact page triggers a Spam alert to Google , while having the same greatly reduces the chances of your site being penalized.

For eg. if you checkout a site with OpenSearchExplorer, if the contact page is missing, it’s flagged as a “spam factor” so I’m pretty sure it’s important.

domain

A contact page of course guarantees that there is a way to contact the owner or the webmaster, and thus if there’s any issue there is somebody who can be contacted, and thus it’s valued so much.

Well, certain guidelines follow even for your Contact page, so make sure you follow them all:-

  • Have a working Contact form, for sure.
  • Have the contact page accessible from all the places on the Web2.0 .Meaning, don’t put it in some corner that it shows only on some specific pages or locations. The best way to overcome this is to put it either on the Top bar, Menu bar or the SideBar.
  • It’s best if you can have a separate page for the form, instead of some pop up or just a link, meaning try to have the page something like yoursite.blogspot.com/contact or whatever format your 2.0 might be supporting. If it doesn’t support an additional page, then just create a new post, and use the Title:- Contact , and put in your Email Id ( Any Email ID actually ) and stuff.

Privacy Policy:-

Every site you make, will use some stuff from the User, either with or without their knowledge. A popular and common example of “stuff” is “cookies” . Sites use Cookies in order to speed up the next session load time for the users.

I don’t exactly know how this works but I’ve talked to some really Top level guys about this, and they all recommended setting up a Privacy Policy page on the Web2.0.

I know it sounds complicated to some of you, so just head over to any Privacy Generator Tool and it’ll let you generate your privacy policy for free ! All you need to do after that is copy paste it on your page.

That was about what your Web2.0 should look like, now let’s work on the basics, meaning some thing which need attention, and it’s better if I clear them right here.

Web 2.0 URL selection

Okay so you’re targeting a niche, let’s say Hunting Knife. Alright?

Now, you can create as many 2.0’s as you like for it, but, using the same keyword for all the 2.0’s will just ruin it. Meaning, if you go for besthuntingknieves.blogspot.com and besthuntingkniieves.tumblr.com , it just won’t work.

Instead, make sure the links are diversified , and remember the thing I told you about LSI’s. Meaning, if you can’t come up with new ideas, using something like the below examples would work too, infact it would work better then using the same keyword a hundred times:-

  • SharpHuntingknives.blgspot.com
  • BestHuntingKnives.tumblr.com
  • goodhuntingknives.weebly.com

So you got that clear? Now, you don’t always need focus keywords in the URL. Meaning, you can also target extremely specific keywords. Something like:-

  • Deerhuntingknives.jimdo.com
  • pointedhuntingknife.something.com

Here again the point is, to make Google believe that all the links you are receiving aren’t from a very narrow spaced keyword, because Google is intelligent enough to sense lot’s of things, so just keeping it as natural as possible will do the trick.

Web 2.0 Linking Strategy

Wow, finally the treasure you’ve been waiting for, right?

How would you exactly link to your main site, in order to reap the benefits of all this hardwork? Because link building strategy has changed a lot, and I mean a lot over the years and now something as slight as a wrong placement of the link might scrap it off all it’s benefits.

And as MattCutts’ popular saying goes

image402

So let’s cut the chase, and here’s the story, always link to your money site in the first paragraph of the articles. Well, you’ve done considerable hardwork, so I suppose you deserve that !

Anchor Text Variation:-

While linking, try to use a Variation of keywords as the anchor text , this is a very important step that you don’t overcrowd the same keyword with links. Here’s an example of how you should go about it:-

Example keyword:- Wp Engine Review

  • Wpenginereview ( Exact match Anchor text ).
  • Review of Wpengine + (related text )
  • fast web hosting (related, broader keyword ).
  • hosting for wordpress image sites (very specific keyword )
  • Click Here ( Generic Keyword )
  • Get Wp Engine ( Generic ).

And now let’s work a bit on internal linking, when creating a 2.0 , do make sure you link to other articles of the same 2.0 keyword, this is an indicator that the posts are related, and it gives Google a strong sense of the total central idea of the 2.0 , and also it’s a good practice as far as Google is concerned.

Of course, don’t miss that thing I talked about linking to Authority Sites in the earlier sections !

Web 2.0: The “Ghost” mode

Well, Google knows your ID’s, right? And Specially Gmail ID’s. So first of all, try not to use GMAIL to create the Web2.0 accounts.

But again, I talked to some leaders and even they said that there’s no fixed answer to the above confusion, but what’s wrong in playing it safe? So make sure you choose Unique and different ID for each 2.0

You can use the same ID for “one keyword 2.0’s”. Like you can use the same account for a set like “something.blogspot.com ” “something.tumblr.com” etc, but when you’re targeting another set of keywords, use another ID for all the 2.0’s on that keyword !

Or if you’re feeling bold, go out and use the same ID’s, and let us know the results in the comments, if you succeed I’d be more then happy to update this post for you.

List of Sites to create potential Web2.0’s

  • Jigsy.com
  • WordPress.com
  • Tumblr.com
  • Jimdo.com
  • Weebly.com
  • Blogger.com
  • Wix.com
  • YolaSite.com
  • Sites.google.com
  • LiveJournal.com

Over to you

So here’s the complete blueprint of what you must be doing in order to get success with Web 2.0’s

Advanced Web 2.0 blueprint

So that was pretty much of it Folks ! I hope I did cover almost everything you need to start building your 2.0’s .

Oh and another thing, that “2.0’s and PBN’s don’t work”  is bullshit. It’s like  a way of keeping the competition down. Go out and try it out, if it’s gets penalized, you’d still be in control right? So just remove the links then, but there’s only  a very rare chance of it getting penalized if you did it right.

Let me tell you, there will always be people who’ll tell you it doesn’t work, there will always be people who might have failed on this thing, but you aren’t them, right? And the funny thing is, Google isn’t yet perfect.

Meaning, your friend might get totally screwed on his 2.0 and you might get a skyrocket success following the same strategy, because it depends on a lot of other factors which we can’t cover or understand basically, after all Google is hundreds of Millions of lines of codes, it isn’t always easy to fool around , right?

Oh and if there’s something I missed, or if something still isn’t clear, do make use of the comment box over here, I  try to  reply to all the comments no matter how many, which I picked up from Neil Patel, if a guy of that level can reply to hundreds of comments a day,  without getting tired, then I surely don’t have an excuse.

    I have seen many sites which are ranked in Google With low backlinks. i think this the reason for those ranking.
    Once Again Thanks for The ranking. 🙂

  • Great Article Evan.
    Very well written And I think it’s one of the best guide On web2.0 blogs for Ranking strategy.
    Thanks

  • What a great post this is! I really have appreciate for this awesome post.

  • Had a lot of PBN PBN stuff on Internet and i am still loving ranking my sites with web 2.0, this post is a solid proof that there are more guys like me 🙂 . Interesting and powerful article to people who are ignoring web 2.0 for PBN if they are under budget 🙂

  • Its the one of the best post about web2.0 and i really loved it as it covered all the things, but still i have a question. Like i own a 1 web2.0 and i post 4-5 articles on it then when to link money site and how much links we can make from 1 web2.0 for our money site.

  • And that’s what you call an Advanced Guide! Great job again Evan!
    Some things you could include :-
    I’ve been using services like mail.com to get separate emails for my different Web 2.0 domains and if I’m in a mood to create ‘tons’ of them, I use disposable email. Trust me, you can. Yes!
    I maintain all records in excel spreadsheet. Yes, that’s how I keep everything organised.
    I’ll be writing something cool on Web 2.0s on my site soon… 3:)

  • Really Good Post. The first time I read this much on 2.0. Keep writing articles like this. I have some issues with my writing style. Hope I will find some kind of solution on this website. Thank You

  • Hats off to you for writing such a big post. I am really shocked to see this long post and content is also too good and useful.

    Thanks a lot for sharing this useful information.

  • Hey Evan,
    The post was amazing, and I got a lot to learn but have a few doubts out there 🙂

    -obviously, we won’t work like an ass whole month for every other post on our money site…so whats your insight on it? on what type of posts shall we use this 2.0 technique? those targetting high search volume keywords? if yes, then around how much search volume kws?

    – how many 2.0s shall we create for one money post? the blueprint suggests me 5 🙂

    – how many links shall we pass from each 2.0 ?

    – you have mentioned that adding a video to our posts can boost our rankings? shall that video be our own or can we embed a related video from youtube?

    -if the 2.0swork so well? then, can we create several 2.0s like these and earn via adsense and affiliate over them and also by selling links?

    answers would be appreciated 🙂

    • 1. Use it on your “money posts”, meaning posts that are bound to make you money. For eg. you can checkout Suprabhat’s post on how he made 4000$+ on black friday last year.
      2. As many as you want to, or till the post get’s ranked. If you run out of platforms, just update your posts.
      3. 1-2 links
      4. Youtube works too Saksham 🙂
      5. That was the whole point 😀

  • Great work. Web 2.0 can give great authority too + better traffic, you can use web 2.0 with IFTTT. I had done one experiment with it and goes well. It put my blog on Alexa rank near 1Lac worldwide & under 9K in India. With the good amount of traffic.

  • Won’t it be a footprint if you are using the partial match keywords on all web 2.0 URLs as you have listed?

    Shouldn’t the number of posts per web 2.0s differ? 4-5 in all web 2.0 would ofcourse be a footprint. Won’t it be?

    Linking to your money site from the first paragraph of all 10 web 2.0 is again a footprint. Don’t you think so?

    I saw Matt Cutts saying that 300-400 words articles used for link building would get the google serpbots triggered.

    What about the link building to the web 2.0s?

    • Hey Ashin, 4-5 is just an approximation, you can change it too.
      Also, google doesn’t count posts as humans, it counts the “text weight”, so it’s not a footprint exactly . But yes different numbers is cool 🙂

      No Ashin, you CAN link to all money sites from first paragraph, just make sure the number of lines in the paragraph are varied.

      That’s because Matt Probably meant 300-400 words are mostly CRAP, that’s my whole point of stressing upon UNIQUE content 🙂 If the content is unique, you can rank a 200 word post too 🙂 “UNIQUENESS” works much better then we expect it to 🙂

      That’s what Second Tier link building is, building links to the web2.0 🙂 And I’ll be discussing it shortly on my next post 🙂

  • Really a Superb Great Post @Evan .. Make my day !!
    This post really helps me alot to rank my website & build authority to my newly blogs ..
    Thanks again …!!!

  • Thanks for sharing this article and guide.
    Evan, you are really awesome by learning this post I have cleared many doubts and get tips about ranking from you.

  • First of all, thanks but would like to know how much time you spent in writing this post. secondly you mentioned four web 2.0’s only are they your favourites? Please respond thanks IFTI once again.
    This post has cleared many of my doubts but would ask here again if any doubt arises. Thats all for now. Take care. Bye.

    • Hey Prabhu,
      Well I’ve been working only on computers since I was 13, so it took me roughly 2 hours to “write” the content in all. If you’re talking about the research it’s around 4-5hours approx.
      And thanks 🙂

  • i don’t know much about web 2.0’s but through this guide i got some extra knowledge regarding web 2.0’s and wow such a lengthy post and thanks ifti and Evan Bro

  • Hey Evan, no doubt it’s a great strategy to rank a site, but what happen when our PBN or one of my 2.0 blog penalized by google? Will it also affect my main money site’s ranking ?

  • Hey Evan,
    That was a wonderful guide about Web 2.0s.
    I can see lots of questions in the comment section. I just want to add one more question.

    I have read in several blogs that building links for web 2.0s is a must else its just a waste of time.

    What you say about building links for web 2.0 sites? Anything we need to keep in mind before building links to these sites?

    Any answer would be appricited 🙂

    • That’s second tier link building Rabin, and yes if you want to boost your 2.0 rankings too, then you can go for it 🙂
      Thanks for the feedback.

  • First of all thank you to Evan bro. I was just planning to create web 2.0, but saw the post of ifti bro that a advance guide on web 2.0 is coming soon. So that I hold my work.
    Now I have learnt lot of more things about web 2.0.
    Now I have more confidence to rank my sites with web 2.0
    Tons of thanks once again.
    Regards

  • Hi Evan,
    It was really a long post but it was worth reading. I really got some new information about web 2.0.
    Thanks for the share.

  • Evan Bro, You Nailed it Bro, I never Tried it but Now i will Try, One Question is it that is there no need to create links for Web 2.0 blogs…. or they will get natural authority …. please clear it.

  • Hey Evan,
    You did a great job, I would love to add some thing.

    I think these web 2.0 sites without any backlinks can’t be much effective. So, I suggest to provide social signals and some backlinks from relevant sources to make these web 2.0 pages even more powerful.

    Thanks for your nice explanation. Have a nice day!

    • Yup Sakib, I agree.
      Second tier link building is needed, this was just a starters guide including that here might have complicated things.
      I’m surely including that in a more advanced guide 🙂
      Thanks for the feedback

  • Hey Even ,

    Very nice and clean information you shared here. One question i wan to ask that is while creating about us , contact us privacy policy etc pages. should i use same content? Because suppose i am into astro niche and want to create web2.o for that, about us related to my business who we are, right!

    So in that condition what is the solution for should i use same content on each “About us page and main page like what you read above ” ?

    Waiting for your valuable answer…

    Thanks

    • Hey Sanjay,

      You are talking About us (or me) page. Well! You should write about yourself generally in that page if you can’t write anything else. It’s simple.

      • No Sanjay,
        just spin up any story and and any name, it doesn’t matter. But try not to use the same content.

  • Hey Evan,
    This is a compact guide. It will clear doubts about WEB 2.0 link building. Also, You didn’t mention what Sakib said just above. You writing is superb nevertheless. I wanna read more for sure.

  • Awesome guide on web 2.0 .. Before I have many confusion about it but this article clear many doubts. Thanks for this buddy!!

  • first of all thank you so much to write about web 2.0 from long time i am looking for this kind of stuff.
    you made my day with that level of article.

    one thing i want to know is while create different web 2.0 should i use the same ip or different.
    please tell me in detail

  • Hi,
    This is a very informative guide about Web 2.0 sites but I want to know how I can find expired web2.0 domains for free? Are they effective?

  • Hi Evan

    Truly a Great Post…. Web 2.0 is really ah good static to get dofollow links.. But can it be used for Event Niche ?

  • wow nice i started doing now nice wow thanks lot Iftikhar Bhaiya and Evan nice this is wonderfull
    thanks a lot

  • Thanks a lot for this lengthy and informative post. I want to ask a question.
    Should We use an IP changer or VPN while posting/submitting content on web 2.0 website?

    • Necessarily not not, here I want to make clear 2.o’s are NOT PBN’s.
      They’re on a different domain anyway, so your IP doesn’t really make a big difference here, although it’s better if you can use a fresh email for every 2.0 🙂
      Thanks for the feedback

  • Thank You, Man, Appreciate it, That’s All I’ve got to say. kudos, perfect explanation on web2.0s, nothing can get better than this.

    • Thanks Deepak Sir :p Those words from you mean a lot 🙂

  • Many many thanks for sharing this awesome and informative article on Web 2.0. I got lots of information from this article.
    I have some questions to you………

    – How many links should I put on an article?
    – Can I use the same youtube videos on different web 2.0 sites?
    – Should I use site logo for every web 2.0 sites?
    – Can I reuse the articles from the deleted site?

    Waiting for your great responds.

    • When should I put my money site link on the article of web 2.0, beginning or after few days? – beginning.
      – How many links should I put on an article? – 2-3 . But only 1 money site link, the rest should be links to authoritative sites.
      – Can I use the same youtube videos on different web 2.0 sites?- Try not to.
      – Should I use site logo for every web 2.0 sites? – Site logo doesn’t impact much, but the pages do.
      – Can I reuse the articles from the deleted site? – Dont do that, it might hurt you.
      Hope it helped Rubel 🙂

  • Hey Evan,

    Firstly, thank you so much for sharing such an informative post. It’s so new to me. I always had a confusion regarding the working of blogging arena, especially with starting blog with a sub domain and own domain. Now, I am quite familiar with its overall working. And I’m happy to know that possibilities are vast for domains of this kind as well.

    Once again, thank you so much for such a valuable take.

    Appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Rahul Ashok

    For eg- i created web 2.0 and after getting 3 links from web 2.0 to my money site. If i want to continue run that web 2.0 and getting links from them is good or not.

  • really awesome post thank you so much for sharing this post. I will definitely use web 2.0 now. Your post is very useful for newbie blogger.

  • WOW!

    Great write up, Evan.

    A detailed guide on Web 2.0

    Nothing can be like this post.

    I really enjoyed it.

    Thanks

    • “nothing can be like this post”, really thanks for those lines.
      Ah I see you’re trying to rank for Kontentmachine*******.com ? Great. Best Wishes

  • Hi Evan,

    Just In case, Google comes with a smarter way of detecting PBN, it nails your Money blog, you then remove the backlinks. Sounds great.

    But do you think Google will give you “that chance” to remove your backlink and not deindex/Demote your domain in SERP even before you realize it?

    I’ve pretty good ideas of utilizing Web2.0’s, but I am just too scared of losing it all. In fact, one of my Web2.0 blog who was supposed to be a test blog for me, God knows how has a PA(and of course DA) better than my Money blog. But it’s lagging behind when it comes to Trust Flow and Moz Trust. Do you think it would be a good idea to get a backlink from it to my Money Site?

  • Hi Evan,

    Very good & detailed guide you wrote on Web 2.0. But here your words are contradictory to each other I think there is some confusion due to a spelling mistake. Please check

    “While creating your web2.0, don’t use the same name on every Web2.0 . This tells Google that the same owner is not operating those sites, and so it’s not a scam. But using the same name would definitely trigger a spam alert.”

    • I believe your concern is rightly placed, but jsut to clearify things, here “This tells google that…” in this sentence, “THIS” = the act of “NOT” using the same name on every web2.0.
      🙂

  • What about getting generic names for the blog but the posts’ urls have keywords? Does that help w/seo?

  • Undoubtedly, one of the best article. Learned alot and you cleared a lot of my confusions about Anchor text variation.

    Thanks a lot

  • Hi,
    Thank You for this wonderful post and useful information. But i have a multiniche website(kinda latest news site) . how should i target keywords here?? Do i need to create mulit niche 2.0 sites?
    How should i gain from this process for latest news site?

    Waiting for your response which would help me a lot.

    Thanks.

  • Hi Evan,

    This is really a massive guide about web 2.0. I myself have seen people are ranking for major keywords using this strategy. Although your success depends upon how you build tier-2 backlinks.

    Most people just create web 2.0 and leave it as it is. They don’t build tier-2 links and got failed.

    I personally feel if you could also update the article and add some tips about building links for web 2.0. I think this change will make the guide perfect.

    Regards
    Tauseef Alam

  • Since everyone now follows web 2.0 link building will google start to penalize it.? Kindly update any warning signs regarding this when available.

  • Honestly saying it is 1st time I have been reading this guide. But don’t know how the idea came to my mind to use web2.0 for backlinking.
    Last year I did rank 3 educational events (they were pretty hard to rank usually) just with the help of the 2.0s.
    BTW you spiced up the things here. So we can dominate with this only if we do it in legit way. Thanks evan

  • First, of the I found this post after 10 mins of search on google and must say its the best of all!

    And the last para ! Aw .. U made me a bit emotional!

    thanks once again for this awesome guide on Web 2.0.

  • Hello Evan, thank you for this amazing post, it’s really helpful. I have 1 microniche site in English, my question is:

    Can i create my web 2.0 PBN in Spanish and English?
    For example. 2 blogs in English and the other 2 in Spanish

    Again thank you so much.

  • Very good article… Thank You.

    I have one question: How many links to the money site PER 2.0 ?

    I’ve heard no more than 3…

    What’s your opinion?

    • There’s no fixed no. as such Anthony. But yes 3 cuts the deal.
      Simply because more no. of links will reduce the overall link juice from the same link.

  • I have a question! If we make a 2.0 network and we want to use it for multiple money sites, can we do that if yes then how?

  • You told just tweet every new post of Web 2.0 and add 1 video in each post of 2.0. Will that be sufficient to index our Web 2.0 Because only when it will appear in top pages of Google and user comes then only he will go to the money site.

    So my question is, Is tweeting and adding video is sufficient for indexing 2.0 or we should do something else also?

    • The purpose of the 2.0’s isn’t to bring direct traffic, but to act as “backlinks” from the perspective of optimization of the money site.
      So well yes they get indexed even if you don’t tweet or share them, because “indexation” doesn’t really have any special requirements. 🙂

  • Hello,
    The post looks awesome and informative. But i have a question and that is suppose I have created a web 2.0 on tumblr and i posted 4 articles there. SO should i link back to the money site from each articles or only from one?
    Thanks in Advance

  • This was very helpful! I got a few questions, though:

    1. How many backlinks per article? (I usually use two)

    2. Which (and how many) of these tier 2 submissions (linking to the 2.0) should one do to avoid being penalised (only if there’s a limit):
    a. Social Bookmarking
    b. Content Syndication
    c. Image Submission

    3. I have previously done a lot of submissions on a few other 2.0’s besides the ones you mentioned. (For eg. hubpages, uberant, iamfaceplate). Should I delete the ones I have done on these and post it on the one’s you mentioned.

    (I am new to SEO so my apologies if my queries sound absurd).

  • Hello,
    I have one question in my mind:

    Suppose I created a web 2.0 of the same keyword (mykeyword.tumblr.com) on different sites with same email id.
    So I have one about us page in one web2.0.
    My question is I have to add the same about us page on all web2.0 of a similar keyword or I have to add differently?

  • Hello, Awesome guide.
    I have a question. Suppose I create a Web 2.0 on WordPress.com
    Now how can I block Ahrefs, MOZ crwaler

  • Hello Evan,
    I have one doubt, In the article, you said that to diversify your web 2.0 URL with keywords in a sub-domain.
    And later you said that

    “You can use the same ID for “one keyword 2.0’s”. Like you can use the same account for a set like “something.blogspot.com ” “something.tumblr.com” etc, but when you’re targeting another set of keywords, use another ID for all the 2.0’s on that keyword !”

    I don’t get your exact point?

    Please explain

  • It’s an awesome article! I have already read this article for many time and I bookmarked it on my firefox. But I have some questions for you. Please answer me.
    1. If I use the premium indexer to crawl my 2.0s, have any trouble?
    2. You say, for quick indexing share the 2.0 on the tweeter. But if I share on my own tweeter account, have any trouble? Because I have already shared my money site on my tweeter account.
    3. I love event blogging 🙂 How much time before I should add my money site on my 2.0?
    4. If I build backlinks on my all 2.0 in a day; Is it bad for my ranking or bad for my 2.0s?
    5. I have 2/3 top label domain and all the domains are submitted on the webmaster tools. So If I get backlinks from my all the 2.0s for my all (4/5) the webmaster submitted domain; any trouble?

    Advanced thank you for answer 🙂

  • Can we use only web 2.0 without third party domain as a money blog of a particular keyword ??

    some people suggested me to go for third party domain instead of *****.blogspot.com

  • Just an amazing post Iftikhar like, i never ranked my sites using web 2.0 but after reading this post I’ll surely create a web 2.0 PBN.
    Thanks for sharing your secret trick buddy!!!

  • Awesome tutorial for beginners like me. Got here by Rajan Gohil. Thanks again for this valuable info. 🙂

  • Hey, Evan!

    Best tips, buddy!

    And the easy ones to let the newbs understand the technical part of these complexed steps! 🙂

    I am gonna check out all and act accordingly.

    Thanks again, buddy!
