About ten days ago, I published Using Tumblr Links For Ultimate Rankings. Since then, I have received feedback from a few more clients who have seen their rankings shift in the positive direction.
A few of my keyphrases have shifted from pages 3 to pages 1 & 2 and some that were never in the top 100 have jumped in top 100.
You’ll see quite a few examples below but let me start with one:
[Edit: This is for 2500k searched term, Bing. Lots of dancing happening and finally at #5 :P It’s been jumping pages 2-4 in the last 3 months and now sticking Tumblr and Blogspot links to it (with PA).]
All from what? A few PBN links, but those were reserved for the main keyphrase only. As I’ve explained before, Tumblr, Pinterest, Instagram, and Weebly all seem to play an important role in sending those social signals that Google has come to love… but it can’t be denied that Tumblr links are especially delicious right now.
Why Do These Links Matter?
Because such links indicate viral content. Content that has taken off. Content that isn’t just good, but great. And search engines want to return results that are relevant (hence, great!)
As an SEO, it is my job to either:
A) Create viral content and give it the best chance to BE VIRAL OR
B) Mimic the strategy behind content that’s gone viral 😀
(We could go with either choice, depending on your budget, duh!)
And that’s what I’ve been doing. That’s what I offer to my clients too. You’ll see, in just a minute. As of now, way more Tumblr links have been added (PA 31+), Pinterest accounts are being readied, one Blogspot link I’m getting ready to restore, and a Weebly link as well. All of these links are hitting my one main site. I take care in keyphrase variation, targeting my main one, but also creating naked URLs, brand texts, and links to my inner pages as well.
I’ve become very comfortable creating these links on the daily. Pinterest accounts are image heavy, so they take some organization, but these two, by far are my favourites. Still, creating these in a drip feed manner is easy enough to do, not too time consuming, and the pay-off has been sweet.
I make it a point not to ping all of my posts. Some clients choose to. For my personal projects, I’ve chosen to submit half of them to Link Centaur for indexation purposes.
Now, here are some of the questions I receive from folks:
- What is the trust flow?
- How many backlinks exist for each Tumblr account?
- Can you do 4 links for $10?
Kindly, I will respond in generalities and specifics.
While I understand why you’re asking for Trust Flow, my current Tumblrs were once deleted and now re-registered and setup to go once again. The day I raise a few of my own accounts with a decent Trust Flow, I won’t be selling those links as cheap as I sell these. Consider that these are manual posts done by Yours Truly and so far, 99% client satisfaction. (I could’ve lied and said 100% and you’d never have known the truth, haha). One link on that account would be $25 at the very least… not 4-10 as I had been offering!
Backlinks… since these are deleted and re-registered Tumblrs, most backlinks are gone, finito. “But, Moon, won’t that hurt your sites in the long run?” Uh, if you’re ballin’ in the SEO World, Kid, there are no guaranteed long runs NOTHIN’. That’s the harsh truth. If you do good overall backlinking, you’re not gonna get hit hard, if at all. My rankings are climbing and I’m about to hit this shit, hard.
Every link has value and serves its purpose. If you can afford $500 of one type of link on some of the biggest sites your niche has to offer and it’s worth it to YOU, then by all means, go for it. These links are showing me some DAMN GOOD results which is why I’m offering these services in turn to my own clients. If I could offer guarantees (which other marketers outright lie about!), heck, I’d be rollin’ in it right now 😉 (Remember! If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!)
Okay, so not to sound condescending, but your $10 is not worth my time. That’s why I have packages. If you can’t test a $25 package, maybe you shouldn’t be in the SEO game. OR! Stick to Fiverr. I’m not knockin’ you NOR Fiverr. Been there, done that. I have found a couple of good providers there, as well as a couple other places. You just gotta know your shit, Kid.
So, let’s collectively take a look at a few of the rankings, from my own site that is making slow but steady (& lovely!) progress to client rankings, which I freakin’ looove.
Here we gooo 😛
Wanna find out more? Well, sign up! This is where I announce PBN sites and my Tumblr & Blogspot packages >:) :
More stuff that clients reported back. No more questions, because these little graphs are too pretty. Thank you!
This is all before my second set of Tumblr links are picked up by the search engines, plus a handful of Pinterests. As I’ve mentioned before, the PBN links only target one primary keyphrase, not the others.
I could paste another 10 images but what good will that do for ya? Are you ready to experiment? I will be posting live results on the Moon Hussain Ninja FB page here, if ye’d like to follow! Just like acquiring expired domains, there’s a bit of art to acquiring Tumblrs. By all means, if you’ve got the moolah, get some nice placements on some nice Tumblrs. My Tumblrs have pretty good Page Authority (PA) and now I’m building and selling equally decent Pinterest links.
Here are some benefits my clients have experienced from my Tumblr, Blogspot, and PBN services (I write the posts and articles manually, myself):
Seems to take a few weeks to catch on, but when they do, hell yes!
Like I mentioned before, just think: what kind of links would be coming in to your site if content from it went viral? Go & build those links or get them built! 😛
