What is Tiered Link Building For SEO
« on: 02-26-2020, 10:18:50 »
Tiered link building is known to be a method mostly utilized by black hat SEOs. It can however be used by white hats in a more effective way. What I’ll discuss in this post is mainly what tiered link building is, how it’s mainly used right now, and how you can use it in a white hat way.

What’s Tiered Link Building?
Tiered link building has been loved by black hat SEOs since ages. It’s basically the process of building multiple tiers of links to a target site. How does that work?

Suppose, you’re a black hat SEO who’s just trying to grow a churn and burn site. So, you’d build relatively high-quality links as the first tier. Like, hand-written articles on 10-20 sites which’d give you nice contextual backlinks to your own site.

So, to make those posts on your tier 1 more powerful, you point a few hundred tier 2 links at the tier 1’s. Then you point a few thousand links at your tier 2’s and it can go on, but I don’t see a need to using tier 4 and up in most cases.

So, in short, all of these links make your tier 1’s powerful. So, effectively, your own site will get a much better boost from those tier 1 links.

A good thing about this technique is that when you receive a warning (if you spammed) or get penalized, you can always cut-off the supply by removing those tier 1 links.

Anyway, this post isn’t much about the black hat side of things. Now that you know about tiered link building,
Let’s say, I’m really proud of this post, InMotion Hosting review, and I want to boost its Page Authority by using tiered link building.

Now, tiered link building can be implemented in a completely white hat SEO campaign. Basically, the tier 1’s in this case would be your guest posts on other sites, and other important sites linking to your site.

No, the next tiers won’t be made up of spammy sites. This is an interesting part of the process. For your tier 2’s, you should actually look for sites with lots of Domain Authority (better) or PageRank (inaccurate reflection of authority in many cases) sites.

You can either approach them to try to get a link, try broken link building (by suggesting them something from your own site to replace a broken link) or try to get a guest post published. They shouldn’t be that strict about accepting guest posts. Why? Probably because they’re badly in need of content or their overall performances are declining. You don’t care about that.

The next step would be to link to your tier 1’s. If it’s just a single link, you can directly link to a related guest post of yours. If it’s a guest post, you can utilize the much-dreaded author bio area to link to your other posts or even your author profiles in other sites.

Suppose, you wrote a pretty awesome post for a top notch blog in your niche. Now, you write 4-5 posts to build some tier 2 links to either that post or your profile in that site. What this’ll do is dramatically boost the Page Authority of that great post of yours.
