Check This Out: A Solid Lower Level Link Building Tool

How is that link building going for you? Still a pain in the ass?

Building the lower layer of links can be a royal pain the behind.

Lately I’ve come across this tool that can automate a lot of the painful routines for you or your contractors.

Specifically:

* Create worpdress blogs in WPMU hosts
* Create blogspot blogs
* Create tumblr blogs
* Post comments on Pligg hosts

It does it automatically too. Creates the email accounts, fills the forms, breaks the captchas, pretty much everything.

You can also enter your own {spun | creatively written | machine generated} content on it using the typical content spinner export format.

If you spend some time mastering the tool you can create networks of blogs and manage them using a blog network manager. Haven’t tried this yet but looks pretty decent. This means you can build different layers of link equity without worrying about your own self hosted domains.

Check these videos for some more detail:

Managing your blog farm:

Managing Blogs from LFE on Vimeo.

This tool could work wonders for spammers trying to build the bottom layer of their link pyramids. Don’t be a lazy ass, do a good job avoiding footprints and generating good quality content.

I’m told Version 2.0 is being worked on. The big promise is a task manager/scheduler with which you will be able to set up your projects and forget about them for as long as you like.

Spammy Links Are Good For . . .

After reading Kamihr’s Story Yesterday, You may be wondering why you would ever want to use spammy links or a link spamming tool. So today we’ll cover 2 of the ways spammy links can be useful.

When you throw thousands of spammy links at a Web Page over the course of a few days, 2 things are very likely to happen:

1. A Burst Upwards in the SERPs for a Few Days

Followed By

2. A Decline in overall site Trust / Rankings / Search Traffic

Now think critically: How could you benefit from each of those effects?

Let’s take the first effect first:

How could you benefit by having a Page Rank Number 1 for a few days for very competitive terms?

That’s easy enough: if you rank for competitive terms, you can cash in through affiliate offers, PPC or direct sales. But if it’s not worth it to risk your site’s long-term trust for those quick gains, how can we use those links?

Answer:

The Parasite Host

Fortunately we don’t have to risk our White Hat Site’s reputation or Trust. There are Hundreds of thousands of place on the Net where you can upload, edit, or create your own pages. Some obvious examples are Wordpress.com or Blogger. Any place where you can put your content and leach off of someone else’s trust is called a parasite host.

The Best Parasite hosts incidentally are usually Pages on University Websites (those sweet .edu TLDs).

Find the hosts that have not already been discounted too heavily, upload your landing page, spam your links and profit. Who cares if the site only stays at #1 for a few days? A few days should be all you need. In the meantime, you are repeating the process elsewhere.

The 2nd part of the problem: How could we benefit from having links that we spam take down the rank of a website?

Answer:

Google Bowling

If spamming links will bring down a site’s rankings, then I want my competitors to have spammy links. If they rank lower, I’ll rank higher. Why not point that tool you just picked up at a competitors throat?

This part of the equation is trickier than the first. Some sites just have too much trust to ever be banned. If you spam links at them, they will just rank better.

Large Companies who want to manage the top 10 Google results for a term are paying in the $500k – $3 Million range per year for the service. I know people who perform this service and do it well. It’s worth it to many companies for you never to find out about that lawsuit or claim that is currently ranking #4 in Google.

It’s actually rather complicated to control the top 10 results. I don’t want you walking away from this article thinking you can own the top 10 results for any SERP just by Google bowling your competitors with off the shelf software.

But in Kahmir’s Example, his competitors (many of them) had a similar number of natural links. If he would have pointed that Chainsaw at his competitors, I’d bet dollars to donuts that he’d be ranking higher than them today.

That covers some of what to do with huge bursts of spamming links. Tomorrow I’ll go over how to intelligently use spammy links to build up your white hat link farm (or link onion or Link Pyramid – whatever you wanna call it!)

Kahmir’s Story: Link Spamming Gone Wrong

Yesterday, you saw the video on what a link spamming program like what Xrumer can do.

You may have even registered to try it out.

As long as you have an idea of what link spamming software can do, we can proceed. Because today we’re gonna cover some of the things NOT to do when link spamming.

To Illustrate, we’ll start with

The story of Kamihr

Kamihr is a web entrepreneur. He built his online shoe store over the past 4 years mainly through link buying, directory listings, and manual spamming Q&As / Press Releases (You know: White hat SEO ;) ). Kamihr had 5k visitors per day from Google that was making him roughly $5k per month in profits.

Then a few weeks ago Kamihr sends me this frantic email:

Hi Quads,

My name is Kamihr and I own the site ***.com. I was in the top ten for all these terms:

*********
*********
*********
*********

and was pulling in more than $5k per month. Then all of a sudden my Google traffic went to almost nothing!! I still get like 100 visits per day, but Google was sending 4k visitors per day.

I don’t know what happened. I just want to get my rankings back; you gotta help me!

-Kahihr

If you’re high profile in the SEO space, I’m sure you’ve gotten more than your fair share of similar emails. So I check out his site and the backlinks and the first thing I notice is that he’s got thousands of Garbage links from forums in every language imaginable that all share one of 10 different text and backlink combinations.

Moreover, the dates from this link spam is all from the last 60 days according to the boards they were posted on. I asked him about it and he says:

“I bought XYZ link spamming software and gave it a try.”

What he did was spam 30,000+ links in under 2 months to his white Hat site that had only 2000 links to begin with. He used 10 different anchor texts (all the ones he wanted to rank for) and spammed them to the pages he wanted to rank.

Shit Like That Gives Link Spamming a Bad Name

It’s people like that who say things like “SEO / Link Spamming Doesn’t Work” or “You can’t beat Google” or “Black Hat SEO Sucks – stick to white hat”.

Why? Because they’re doing it all wrong.

Link Spamming Software (like Xrumer) is a Tool. It’s a powerful tool – like a chainsaw. If you don’t know how to use the tool correctly, you’re probably gonna get hurt. However, if you use it correctly, it will help you complete your mission much more quickly and effectively.

1. Don’t shoot off thousands of Spammy links directly to your White hat site.
2. Anchor text matching is a huge spam Signal.

Right now, many of you are scratching your head and wondering “If I’m not suppose to spam thousands of the same anchor text links to my White Hat Site, what is Link Spamming Good For?!?

Well stay tuned, because I’ll get into some of the right ways to link spam tomorrow!

You lazy bastard, Get back to work! Fortune Cookie.

Want a link?

1. Download the blank,
2. Write in your own clever comment
3. Post it on your blog.

Then let me know about it (comment, trackback, contact form).

I’ll link up all the best ones later this week.

Destone’s Referral Spammer

Destone has released the code for a referral spammer to the public.

Referral spamming is the action of sending multiple requests to a web site with a “referral url” that you want to promote (like your latest viagra spam site for example). Then, you want either a webmaster to be curious about who is sending them traffic and visit the site by inspeting the logs, or (more often) you want the websites referral logs to be published (thereby creating free backlinks).

Survey: What’s Your Dream Anchor Text?

Assuming it couldn’t be Porn or Pills, If you could get 1000 Quality links to your site (Page Rank 4-8: Trusted sites), what would be your dream anchor text?

30 Character Max: What would it be? What page on your site would it link to?

The Google “PDA Hack” Was Great While it Lasted!

About 4 weeks ago, one of the posts on the private SEO Black Hat Forum showed how to get your content indexed on a Google Domain AND have backlinks that counted from the big G.

Here was the original post:

I call this the Google PDA Hack as that is simply what it is. A small breach in Googlebot makes it index it’s own PDA search results.

This will probably not last for a whole lot longer as more and more people are starting to use it but anyhow here is a quick guide on how to.

1. Let’s first see it in action
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=round+and+brown&
btnG=Google+Search

Second listing
http://www.google.com/pda%3F&as_q%3DRound+N+Brown+site:
kimosabi.en.wanad oo.es&num%3D20

2. To get your site listed with the PDA hack its important that the site you want listed is already indexed by Googlebot otherwise it wont show and even more important it is that your domain don’t get banned. F.x last week some guy refspammed the [heck] out of this gimmick and he was 3rd on Viagra so his domain was listed under the PDA search pages but no pages was indexed as he was banned. Don’t make that mistake. Just get your pages indexed don’t get them ranking. The PDA hack will do that for you.

3. Now we change the pda search string. It’s easy as ABC.
http://www.google.com/pda%3F&as_q%3DSearch+Term
+site:domain.com&num%3D20

4. Ok now you ready with your PDA search string. Simply take it and get it linked from somewhere and you should be in the SERPs in no time.

That’s all folks!

It’s funny, because a couple of people PM me saying they can’t find anything to use in the forum – while others tell me it’s far and away the best forum they’ve seen.

Most of us knew the Google PDA Hack was incredible; we also knew it would not be around forever. Alas! The exploit has been fixed — but it was great while it lasted! Several people IMed me about how they were raking in the cash on very competitive SERPs because of this Google PDA hack.

Indeed, Black Hat SEO is a constantly evolving art form. That’s why if you have the tools and knowledge to take advantage of an exploit when it becomes available, you want to be one of the first to know about it.

Is this kind of information worth paying money for? Well, not for everyone. Clearly my Grandmother would not have benefited from having this information 4 weeks ago. On the other hand, many of our members were able to abuse this exploit before it was patched up and made more than enough to pay for YEARS of membership to the Private SEO Black Hat Forum.

Will joining the forum be worthwhile for you? Maybe. Maybe not. It’s definiately not for everyone. However, your opportunity to “peek under the hood” for $100 will soon be coming to a close . . .

The Most Cutting Edge SEO Exploits No One is Publishing

You know that the best SEO Black Hats are doing something more than scraping, using a site generator, comment spamming, and pinging to be raking in more than $100k per month.

But what is it?

Right now, there is way too much good stuff that I simply can’t publish on the SEO Black Hat blog. If I posted these tactics and exploits they would immediately get all the wrong kind of attention. The detailed conversations about how exactly to abuse search engine algorithms, generate massive traffic, and what other Black Hats are doing must remain underground to retain their effectiveness.

But what if I told you that you could discuss these exploits with me without paying my $500 an hour consulting fee? What if I told you there was a way to join in on the private, cutting edge discussions with some of the best Black Hats and web entrepreneurs in the world?

Would you be interested?

Because now you can . . .

Today is the official launch of the resource you’ve looked everywhere for but never found:

The Private SEO Black Hat Forum

Normally what you get on forums are people who don’t know anything talking with people who don’t want to say anything. You can occasionally find amazing tips on some forums: but you have to dig through 400 crappy posts just to find one post that is useful. That becomes a huge time sink.

How are the SEO Black Hat forums different?

Quality: We’re not going to have any contests to see who can make the most posts. That just creates tons of crap that no one wants to read. Our focus is on quality over quantity. Our primary concern is with succinctly answering one question: “What works?”

Sophisticated: Many of the topics we discuss are very advanced and require a high level of technical or business acumen to appreciate.

Expert Discussions: The SEO Black Hat forums are not for everyone and they may not be right for you. If you are relatively new to SEO or building websites, then do not join the SEO Black Hat Forums: you will be in way over your head. There are plenty of newbie forums out there for you – this is not one of them. Our forums are for successful web entrepreneurs to develop strategies that drive more traffic and generate more revenues.

Free Word Press Comment Spamming Script

I used technorati today to find another site about seach engine spamming. Here’s what I found:

The script does the following things:

A – look for WP blogs in Yahoo
B – post a comment

A) The script has a basic list of 100 most popular words in english language. It takes 2 random words, then queries Yahoo for WP blogs containing those words. Normally spammers take Google results. But I don’t wanna mess with my Biggest Friend.

B) Every post on WP has an ID. We don’t really wanna be bothered with extracting it… we just take a random number between 10 and 30, and try to comment on post with that ID.

Just select the text below, save it as commenter.php, put it on the server and you can start your career as a comment spammer.

Greasemonkey Script for XSS Link Building

In the spirt of putting more guns in the hands of children, we bring you more ways to create inbound links with cross site scipting.

Rsnake must have finished moving and unpacked his computers because he has created a Grease Monkey Detection Script for XSS (Cross Site Scripting).

Here’s the crappy redirect detection Greasemonkey script. I don’t recommend using it, because it sucks, but it was a good proof of concept.

Now granted a good chunk of these do not work, but that actually shouldn’t matter much. Without even testing, sending multiple possible attempts to Google, even if 80% of them fail, it’s not like you are giving anything up, you are sending valid links that probably have some custom error logic. It just looks like you are linking to a lot of custom error pages, potentially. So pruning the redirect attack list may or may not help.

SEO by spray and pray. Hat tip to v7n.
