Day 60 – How the other half live
One of the main reasons why I started this niche site challenge was all because of a little, unknown internet marketer going by the name of Pat Flynn 😉 You might have heard of him (sarc!). He started a Niche Site Duel and ended up building a monster site that earns him plenty of cash all year round. The case study, which is quite old now, was definitely something I would like to emulate, building an authority site.
Now, it seems that he is going to start the niche site duel 2, building a new site, looking for ways to ensure that it ranks well and quickly in Google. He also seems aware that you can no longer build the site, chuck out a load of crappy spun article backlinks and expect people to start arriving in droves.
On his Facebook page, he mentions enlisting the help of a chap called Alex Becker from Source-wave.com who can, apparently, rank sites pretty easily and offers it as a paid SEO service.
Looking around the source-wave.com site, I can see that Alex seems to rely on using tools such as SENukeXCR, Scrapebox and UltimateDemon to do some hands-off backlinking. This is quite an old strategy, but perhaps he does it with a few tweaks and twists here and there. This is also not dissimilar to what I do, using GSA Search Engine Ranker to build backlinks to my sites.
It will be interesting to see what Pat and Alex come up with over the next few months. I think the “duel” will be starting in June and I will definitely be keeping an eye on their plans.
