Recently I discovered loads of niche site case studies all over the net. Everybody is talking about Niche Sites, Amazon Affiliate Programm, layered link building and last but not least PBNs which stays for Private Blog Network. I’ve never been that good at SEO and especially link building because I’m a lazy Dude. So what can I do? There’s still my day job and I know I can’t cut off even more family time to speed up link building for my niche sites.

That’s why I decided to test out how I can reduce the amount of time for link building while still get the rankings my sites deserve to make money. So far there are several methods I already tested with more or less success and I will share them below. Keep reading till the end to know what my actual case study is (like I announced in the title!) ;-)

Lazy Link Building – Still Effective?

Back in the good ol’ days there was a way you could rank a niche site alone with a handful of Fiverr Gigs. This wouldn’t be possible today or you would need to know exactly what Gigs to use, how many of them and in which order. I don’t know…

This means we have to come up with another solution. And here’s my try:

1. Paid SEO Services – How to find a good one?

For one of my niche sites I recently decided to go with paid links only. But how do you find a reliable SEO provider? My suggestion is to head over to either the WarriorForum or search at BlackHatWorld. There are plenty of Link builders out there, but most of them are useless.

Choose wisely and read all of the reviews before you give it a try. I bought one Service for a one time fee of about $125.00 and it got me decent rankings on Yahoo and Bing but next to nothing in Google. It was a mixture of social signals, Web2.0 blogs and some higher PR links with a second tier of spam comments. I didn’t get penalized so it was still worth a try.

After that I purchased 90 spun articles on high PR pages over at the WarriorForum and these wwere drip-fed over ten days. Got me another ranking boost and many of my keywords are now on the second page of Google.

Let’s see what I find next, I will keep you updated!

2. Private Blog Networks

From my experience these links are great and they will work as long as Google doesn’t detect your network. So if you can afford it get a service like RankHero from Spencer at NichePursuits.com or something similar. The other (and cheaper) method involves more work, but can be even more effective. I’m talking about your own PBN, so learn how to do it on Jon’s Blog and make it right now. I haven’t built my own network yet due to the fact that I’m not able to decide which niche to dive into.

What I wanna do is have a PBN that can be used for several niche sites, this way I don’t have to build a new PBN every time I start a new niche site. That’s hard to do if you are a product focussed Amazon Affiliate marketer like I am, so I’m still thinking about it. Wether I should dive into the Computer/ Tech market or not for example. If I do there are loads of products at a reasonable price available, but Amazon only pays 4% comission on these Items… other niches would be even harder to tackle. For example the Fitness niche is a nice one and probably you could combine it with the diet niche or healthy eating, but I have never worked in this niche before and don’t know much about it.

3. 301 Redirects (Case Study)

Recently I saw Jon Havers project paymystudentloans.com and decided to go for the loan niche with one of my sites. I bought a nice domain and set up some content with CPA offers. So far it gets about 20 visits a day (according to Awstats) and I didn’t do any SEO. It made a whopping $8.90 through Peerfly that’s all.

For this reason I thought I would need some rankings to make more sales/conversions, but I’m a lazy guy. That’s why I had the idea of redirecting some quality domains to the site instead of building out a PBN. I bought four domains with high Page Authority, clean history and so on and redirected all of them to my brand new loan niche site. This was done about two days ago and I can’t see any results yet.

Come back here to read about my progress in the future, I will keep you updated on my SEO effords and tell you what works best!

4. Automated Backlinks

For now I will try somethiong new. I don’t have any SEO Software I work with, but very often I thought it would be useful. That’S why I will purchase some Xrumer SCR campaigns for YouTube videos or even some of my sites. Let’s just wait how this turns out and if it’s worth the money. Let’s go blackhat! ;-) *muhahahaha*

Summary

Now do you now how I try to rank my sites, what’s your approach on link building? Are you the outsourcer type or do you do everything yourself? I’d like to hear about your favourite backlink building strategies, so please leave a comment below!
