A Web 2.0 link wheel is the easiest and most efficient way to get high-quality Web 2.0 backlinks. You can scale them to rank multiple pages for multiple keywords (of almost any difficulty) and create them without cost or labour. Web 2.0 describes any website that emphasises user-generated content.
Any platform that allows users to create and customise their blog or personal website, upload their content, or heavily contribute to the site is classed as Web 2.0. Web 2.0 sites generally have high domain authority, meaning Google trusts them and will rank them higher in the SERPs.
Subsequently, a high domain authority makes it easier to increase the page authority of sub-domains hosted on these platforms – both of which increase the perceived value of the site. In addition to this, you can use Web 2.0s to create contextual backlinks to your main website by using high-quality, relevant content. Google views relevancy as a significant ranking factor.
Some of the other benefits are; Full control over the content of the Web 2.0 sites linking to your money site. You can create as many high-quality backlinks as you want, the only limiting factor is time. Having full control means you can remove the Web 2.0 if you incur a penalty. Online reputation management and building brand authority. And many more! Many Web 2.0 sites fall under a category of websites referred to as parasites or leecher sites.
These sites often dominate the SERPs and “leech” traffic. The method of using parasites to rank may also be referred to as “The Piggyback Method” – which I will also show you in this post – because you are piggybacking off their authority.
For each Web 2.0 site in the first tier, you’ll need a unique article of 1000+ words. I HIGHLY recommend writing this article by hand (or outsourcing it), but if you’re on a low budget, you can scrape some content and spin it. If you decide to turn the articles, thoroughly check them to ensure they make sense and are readable by humans. You should also test them for plagiarism as they must be unique.
Spinning articles for tier-one is usually more time-consuming than writing them by hand, and if done incorrectly will render ALL of your linked Web 2.0 sites useless, so if you decide to go this route, take extra care and put in the effort required to make the articles as realistic and unique as possible.
