I am going to show you how to build a web 2.0 link wheel manually and with the use of software too.
This ranking strategy got me a Google page 1 ranking on day 1.
In around 30 days the strategy got me a Google.com and Google.co.uk rank 1 for my selected keyword.
I am going to show you how I did it for free.
You can do it yourself for free or……..
You can get the strategy done for you right here in the Rankers Paradise SEO store.
I have logged the results below, this is a proven strategy you can use yourself.
You can even check my results for yourself to know for certain that it will work for you too.
Most importantly I am going to show you the rank effects of a powerful link wheel like this.
You can follow the tutorial to build your very own link wheel.
So what is a link wheel?
It’s simply linking up your sites one by one into a wheel formation so that they are not orphaned pages.
The seo link wheel can be a very powerful rank strategy when done the right way.
I am going to point the backlinks to this post to see the rank effects.
I will do a small 5 site web 2.0 link wheel on tier 1.
On tier 2 I will point 10 high PA Tumblrs to each of the 5 web 2.0 posts.
I am not going to write any of the content myself for any of the sites.
I am going to use SEO Content Machine to generate some unique content.
Let’s get right into it;
Web 2.0 Link Wheel Tutorial
First of all we need to set up 5 web 2.0 sites.
To do that we are going to require a fresh email.
You can set up a free email account at the following sites:
Go ahead and get yourself a free email, you only require one. We can use the one email address to set up all five web 2.0 sites.
Now you have your email set up you need to register five Web 2.0 sites for use in the link wheel.
The five Web 2.0 sites I am going to use on tier 1 are;
Go to each Web 2.0 site and set up an account. If you want a list of other web 2.0 sites that you can use go to my free backlinks post.
Make sure you get your keyword into the Web 2.0 sub domain.
I am looking to rank this page for the keyword “Web 2.0 Link Wheel” so I will make sure it sits in the blog sub domain URL.
For example, if you have the keyword “best epilator” you would want your Web 2.0 URL to look like this:
If the exact match keyword blog URL is taken add another word to the end, so you will have something like this:
bestepilatorsite.tumblr.com or even bestepilatorblog.tumblr.com
I think you know what I mean.
Now that you have your Web 2.0 blogs set up you need to get some content to post onto them.
I am going to use SEO Content Machine to generate the content for me.
If you do not have SEO Content Machine you have a few other options available.
You can either write the content yourself by hand, which is by far the best method, but the most time consuming.
You can go ahead and use the free blog content generators outlined in one of my previous posts.
Or you can buy some content for use on your blogs. You can use this service here to get the job done.
Generate Unique Content
I am going to show you how to generate unique content using SEO Content Machine.
I want these sites up and live as fast as possible, so I am going to generate the content.
Go ahead and fire up your copy of the SEO Content Machine software.
Click on the “Generate Articles” icon.
Add your keyword into the “Keywords” box.
Make sure you select the article quality to be “Unique”, this is very important.
We want the content to be as long as possible. So I set the Paragraph count from 25 to 50 and have paragraph Min Words set to 50.
Use the in built spinner “Soft Spin”, which is very good. Then set your article count to 5.
Make sure you select “No Spintax” and choose a folder on your pc to save your content to.
Now you can hit the “Run Task” button. Make sure the “Run Immediately” radio box is checked.
When the content is complete we will optimise it for posting onto our web 2.0 sites. I will show you exactly how to do this right now.
How To Optimise Your Web 2.0 Content
We will optimise the content as we drop it onto our web 2.0 sites.
Before you drop the content onto the web 2.0 sites you need some images. You need around 10 images, make sure you get your keyword into the file name of the image.
The anchor text I will use for the Tier 1 backlinks will be;
- TITLE TAG
- Full Open URL
- Long Tail Exact
You can check out my perfect anchor text ratio post to understand why I chose these anchors.
Right, let’s drop the content onto the web 2.0 sites, to get the most benefit from it you need to do the following things.
- Add your keyword at the beginning of the title
- Put your keyword at the top, in the middle and at the end of the content. (if it’s a long piece of content drop the keyword in there a few more times). Make sure one of the keywords is in bold type.
- Put the keyword in a heading on the page.
- Add the images to your post. Make sure the images have the keyword in the file name, also add the keyword to the image ALT TAG if it is possible.
- Add the backlink to your money site above the fold. I always put the backlinks in the first paragraph. If you are not using exact match anchors make sure your chosen keyword is close to your anchor, this is very important.
- Add another backlink to an authority site. Google your keyword, go to page 4 or 5 and find a site that has high domain authority and drop a backlink to it, do not use exact match anchors, use generic anchors for these.
- Go to youtube and pop your keyword in the search box. Use a different video on each web 2.0. Use the top 5, whichever ones you choose.
That’s it, go ahead and drop the content on all 5 web 2.0 sites. Make sure you optimise each site as suggested above.
Now your web 2.0 sites will have fully otpomised content on them with a backlink to your money site.
Now it is time to link the 5 web 2.0 sites together into what is know as a link wheel.
Create The Web 2.0 Link Wheel
Now we need to go ahead and develop the web 2.0 link wheel. It is really very easy to do, this is how you do it;
This is how you set up your link wheel;
- Tumblr links to Weebly
- Weebly links to WordPress
- WordPress links to Kinja
- Kinja links to Blogger
- Blogger links to Tumblr
Go ahead and link up your web 2.0 blogs. Use all long tail exact anchors, this means you must have your exact keyword in the anchor.
Here is an example of a long tail exact anchor:
If my keyword is “best fishing knife” then a long tail exact anchor for this would be “see this best fishing knife guide here”.
Get thise 5 web 2s linked up now. This ensures your money site gets backlinks and your web 2.0 sites gets backlinks. This ensures your web 2s are not orphaned pages, which is very important.
Also, make sure you link to the web 2.0 post page, not the web 2.0 home page.
Make sure you index those tier 1 backlinks too, you can use Google Console for this. Do not worry if the links do not remain in the index, the tier 2 backlinks will help sort that little problem out.
Now I have my tier 1 web 2.0 backlinks set up, it is time to pump out some tier 2 backlinks.
Tier 2 Backlinks
On tier 2 I am going to build 10 high PA Tumblr backlinks to each tier 1 web 2.0 site.
I am going to use FCS Networker to get my tier 2 backlinks, of course you can do this manually.
Or you can use an seo clerks service for it. The service here offers 50 high PA Tumblr backlinks, and you can split the URLs, which means you can give the seller your 5 tier 1 URLs and get 10 backlinks to each of them.
This is how you can get Tumblr backlinks fast using FCS Networker;
Go ahead and log into your FCS Networker account.
If you are completely new to FCS Networker you will need to add your Tumblr blogs into the system. I have covered this in my FCS Networker guide, so I won’t go over that again here.
I assume that you have your Tumblr blogs loaded into FCS Networker and you are ready to roll out the backlinks.
I am going to use FCS Networker to generate the content for the web 2.0 tier 2 backlinks, it actually produces really good content.
Select “Link Sets” and click on the “Add Link Set” tab.
This is how we are going to set up the anchors used on the backlinks to our tier 1 web 2.0 sites.
We are going to set up 5 link sets.
All tier 2 backlinks will point to the tier 1 post page, not the home page.
All 10 anchors are going to be long tail exact match anchors. You will need to enter 10 different long tail anchors into the system.
You are going to create 5 link sets, one for each web 2.0 site on tier 1.
Enter your link set name.
Enter the URL of the web 2.0 site on tier 1.
Then drop 10 long tail exact match anchors in the “Main Anchors” text box.
Next you need to scroll down and hit the “Add Links” button.
Click on “Create Projects” (circled red) and give your project a name.
Make sure that “Submission Style” is set to “Post Amount Per Project” and that you have the “Evenly” radio tab selected for “Submit Posts Across Accounts”.
Scroll down the page and select the “Linking” tab.
Click on the “Choose Links Sets” button and select one of your link sets that you set up earlier. Leave everything else set on default.
You can add authority link into the mix if you want to, I am not going to do this. I want all the rank juice to flow to the web 2.0 sites.
Then click on the “Images/Videos” tab.
Simply drop your keyword into the images section. The software will add web 2.0 related images into the tier 2 blog posts for me.
Ignore the rest of the tabs, we do not need to use them. Now scroll back to the top of the project page.
To select the Tumblr accounts that you want to use on tier 2, first select the “Accounts” tab and then click the “Add Accounts” button.
You will then be presented with a list of all the web 2.0 accounts you have in the software, check the radio button of the the 10 Tumblrs that you wish to use.
Now click on the “Articles/Content” tab and click the “Auto-Gen Content” radio tab.
Pop your main keyword into the “keyword” text box and select a category for your content.
Make sure that you select the content quality to “Readable” and set how many paragraphs you wish to have.
Then check the “Submit To All Accounts Once” tab.
Scroll down and hit the “Save Project” button.
FCS Networker will now drop 10 Tumblr backlinks to your tier 1 site.
Repeat this process for the other tier 1 web 2.0 sites within the link wheel.
Make sure all the sites get 10 high PA Tumblr backlinks, that will be more than enough to get things moving, especially for easy to rank keyword.
That’s it, you now have a super powerful link wheel on tier 1 powered up with some dirty tier 2 rank juice. You can drop this link wheel into month 2 of my powerful web 2.0 backlinks strategy.
This is a great way to rank any website, or get a page moving up the SERPs again.
You can create the web 2.0 link wheel with FCS Networker software, I am going to show you how to do that right now.
SEO Link Wheel Software
If you have FCS Networker you can use it to build the tier 1 web 2.0 link wheel for you on complete auto pilot.
I will go through this step by step for you right now, you can also take a look at this video to get the job done also.
First of all you will need to load your web 2.0 accounts into the software.
FCS Networker even has a built in account creator option, so you don’t even have to do that manually these days.
You can have the software set up the web 2.0 accounts for you.
For this tutorial I am going to assume you have the web 2.0 accounts set and ready to roll, so lets get them loaded into the software and ready to post to onto.
First lets import your web 2.0 accounts into the software. Click on “Accounts” and then “Blog Accounts” and then select “Import Bulk Accounts”.
Now add your 5 web 2.0 accounts into the software that you are going to use in the link wheel.
You need to enter them in this format:
Pop them into a category and hit the “Add Accounts” button.
Before you start your link wheel project you are going to need to set up a link set for your money site. Select the “Link Sets” option and then hit the “Add Link Set” button.
Go ahead and add your money site URL and main anchors. Drop the 5 anchors in there that you want to be used on each of the 5 web 2s in the link wheel.
Then scroll down and hit the “Add Links” button. Now you are ready to create the link wheel with the software.
Click on “Create Projects” then “Create Blog Projects” and then give it a name.
Now scroll down to the link wheel section.
Select the “Link Wheel” radio tab.
When you click the “Target Links” tab you can select the link set that you set up earlier, this will be the link to your money site.
Then you need to select the “Link Wheel Anchors” button, this is the 5 anchors you are going to use that link one web 2.0 blog to the other.
You can also select the “Authority Links” tab to get some links into your articles from authority sites within your niche.
Make sure you set the “Target Links Per Article” from 1 to 1.
Select the “Accounts” tab and then click the “Add Accounts” button. Now select the 2 web 2.0 accounts that you are using in the link wheel.
Now select the “Articles” tab and go ahead and get your content loaded into the software. You can Auto-Gen the content or upload your own articles, the choice is yours.
Now scroll down to add images and videos to your post.
Select the Images/Videos tab and select the options to add images and videos into your posts. You can use your own images and videos, or have the software get them for you.
Then hit the “Save Project” put and let the software build the web 2.0 link wheel for you on complete auto pilot.
I will log the rank results here for you all to see the effects of the link wheel. If I need to power it up I will add more tier 2 backlinks further down the line.
As it stands this will be enough to get me ranking high for such a easy keyword.

I have a few posts on page 1 (rank 8-10) and bottom of page 2 of google. Which link wheel do you suggest from your store? You have quite a few (5, 10 and 20).
Hi Sean, the 5 site link wheel will do the job. https://rankersparadise.com/product/premium-quality-web-2-0-backlinks-rank-blast-hit-google-top-spot-50/
Thank you for this rich content.
Can I use for money site a web 2.0? which would be the most indicated.
Yes, you can point the web 2s straight at your money site. Best 5 web 2s you can use that hit the index are:
can i use a web 2.0 as a money site?
Sure, lots of people do that and make money from them. You can monetize Blogger sites 🙂
Thanks for the info Nick.
How many Web 2.0 should I take to make a link wheel in 2021?
Depends on the keyword. Low SEO competition search terms will rank top with 5. Take a look at the number of backlinks the top ranking site has for your keyword, a decent free backlink checker tool online is: https://backlinkshitter.com/. If the top site has over 10 links then go for a 20 site link wheel. More competitive search terms will need more.
Start with a 5 site link wheel and see how it goes, if the keywords move up but do not hit the top then go ahead and do another one.
Nick Thank you man,
I just recently started to follow your blog and what a stroke of luck I accidentally hit a gold mine.
Ok, can provide me a list of multiple web 2.0 sites that you personally use in Tier 1 link building.
This 5 you have mentioned :
Anything other than that?
And let me tell you a secret your comments are super informative just like your blog post.
Anyone missing it will miss out on a big chunk of INFO.
The 5 web 2.0 sites that I use most often these days as they are most likely to index are:
Tumblr blogs are hit and miss, some will index, while others just will not index at all. I always use Blogger.com on Tier 2 and drop all the tier 1 links into the post and submit through Google Console to have them crawled and indexed see: https://rankersparadise.com/how-to-index-backlinks-in-minutes-fast-in-google/
Nick if I put 5 post in my web 2.0 should I take link from each post to my money site like this
Post 1 – link type (Brand)
Post 2 – link type (Title Tag)
Post 3 – link type (Open Url)
Post 4 – link type (long tail exact)
Post 5 – link (click here / Read more)
Or I should take only one link to my money site from each web 2.0 from a single post
What would you prefer?
Use 5 different web 2 platforms, then you have 5 links from different IPs. So, do 1 post on each web 2 platform.
I am saying I have 5 web 2.0s and I have published 5 uniques posts in each web 2.0 now my question is should I take a link from each of the posts and point it to my money site or I should take only I link from a single post from each web 2.0.
I hope so you got my point.
I am using expired Tumblr on tired 2 and on tire 3 I am doing mainly link sharing of my expired Tumblr through Pinterest.
Should I change my strategy?
Or Just move with this one?
Yes, link from each post to your money site. Using Tumblr on tier 2 is good, and your tier 3 plan sounds good too, that will help the tier 2 index. Keep going with that one and let us know how it goes for you.
Need some help.
Can I just put one page of content on tier 1 links.
Putting 5 pages of content on each tier 1 web 2.0 site is taking hell lot of time.
Need your suggestion.
Yes, 1 page of content is okay. Get the links in place, that’s all that matters.
Is link wheel works in 2021 ?
yes, you might need a bigger wheel depending on the keyword SEO competition.
Does this still work in 2021?
yes, this is working in 2021, I still use it for my sites and for our clients.
Hi Nick, will this link wheel technique still work in 2020. I still have doubts.
Hi syarif, yes the link wheel still works in 2020. We still use it for clients, just make sure you get the links indexed and you will rank up.
Hey Nick great site, What software would you recommend now as FCS Networker has closed down?
For Tumblr posting only I recommend Tumbling Jazz and for any other web 2.0 posting do for Rank Wyz, Money Robot or Magic Submitter. If you are doing a 5 site link wheel then I recommend you do the tier 1 brand new sites manually and use Tumbling Jazz for the tier 2 high PA/DA Tumblr backlinks.
when linking from Tier 2 to Tier1, can we place the link in the description section of the Tum acc? Or would you suggest we link out from a post page instead, and implement that additional step you mentioned else on this website to help change the link from a nofollow to a do follow?
Yes, you can place the link in the Tumblr description area, however, it’s not required. Just a link from the post page is enough, nofollow and dofollow links help, you need a good mix. It’s not necessary to remove the Tumblr redirect, the juice will pass anyway. If you want to remove the redirect you can follow this to do so: https://rankersparadise.com/remove-tumblr-url-redirect/
you write some really good posts.
Each of the 5 web 2.0 are already receiving 10 exp tumblr backlinks (each). Based on your experience does linking all 5 web 2.0 entities into a wheel make that much of a difference, given they are no longer orphaned pages?
Putting the sites into a link wheel makes a huge difference, this not only helps them index faster in Google it also ensures the Tier 2 juice passes right across all the domains, this means that if one of the web 2 sites does not index all the juice still flows to your website and none of the Tier 2 links are wasted.
Also, the longtail keywords that im ranking for all contain a ‘city’ at the end, like piano lessons in london. Im only using youtube videos to rank, so will your strategy work for youtube videos using location keywords alone, or will i have to do more to get ranked?
Yes it works for local search terms too, make sure you have the keywords in the TITLE of each post and drop the location keyword quite a lot within the content “London” will need to be mentioned a lot within the text. It’s also good to drop a Google MAP embed of the location into the content too. make sure you embed the video into the web 2 post and also link to it using exact match anchors.
Great, sorry for so many questions. I have managed to scrape many expired tumblrs for tier 2 using scrpaebox/vanity cheker and my own bot to check registration. My question is shall i point some of the 60+ tumblrs direct to my videos that are niche related but not exact keyword matches. Or do it keep them on tier 2? I read that some people point more than 1 high PA tumblr to videos. I also scraped high PA blogger blogs that are niche related but not exactly keywords mathes. What shall i point them to ?
No problem ask as many questions as you need to. When it’s to a video you should use a mix of exact match anchors and the full YouTube video URL as anchors (use this mostly – 60% of the time). You can use them all on Tier 1, it looks natural as Tumblr is a social platform and will look like people are seeing the video and sharing it. Most definitely use the Blogger sites on Tier 1, do a mix of video embeds and anchor text backlinks.
Ok great, so how would i maintain a good bounce rate for tier 1 and tier 2 articles? Just good quality content?
Yes and filter traffic with good call to action so the traffic either leaves the site to another website or goes to another page on the site.
