What is up guys! Becker here with another revealing SEO post.
So, I have good news….My SEO conquest is going very well and I am sieging the castle walls of Google like a dragon on steroids..(sorry I have been playing a lot of Elder Scrolls Skyrim lately)
Anyhoo, with all the dramatic dragon analogies aside things are going very well due to my initial backlinking strategy that I will be sharing with you guys (If you have read Panda Dundee this is very similar to Step 1)
If you would like to check this, go to google and type in Turkey Burgers…Then find this site (Turkeyburgers.org)
My first 2 Week SEO Strategy
Honestly, most people will assume that I have been busting my ass to achieve such a quick ranking ( I have already made 5 bucks off the sites…woo hoo!) However, the truth is the secret to initial backlinking is NOT busting your ass and sending a ton of links
What you really want to do is send a few powerful links and the leave it alone for a bit. What I have ALWAYS found to give me the best results is to simply wait 1 or 2 weeks to even start SEO on my site.
Because my site is still very new and is no where near ready to be on the first page. I really do not want Google paying to much attention to it until it is an optimized beast.
Exactly What I Did This 2 Weeks
I have sent my site these exact backlinks (This literally took me less than 2 hours)
- 20 Blog Blueprint Links
- 1 Youtube video link
- 1 Ezine Article links
- I the sent blog blueprint links to my youtube and ezine to “empower them”.
Why I Love This Initial Strategy
Reason 1: I want to test just how competitive the search is. If my site ranks highly with a few of these high value empowered links, then I know I can safely start pouring more time into it.
Reason 2: I do not want to be penalized at all by Google, so I only send a few high quality links at first
Reason 3: Link variety! Instead of using one backlink source, I am using 3 different sources and then empowering 2 of the sources (my Youtube and Ezine Links)
Reason 4: Very little work to test out the competition.
How to Imitate This
1. Get blog blueprint and then use the tutorial in the Linked Video Course (free when you sign up for the newletter) to send your site 20 backlinks
2. Go to http://ezinearticles.com/. Create a 400 word quality article and place links to your site in the signature section with the proper anchor text ( For example my anchor text was Turkey Burgers and Turkey Burger Recipes)
3. Go to You Tube. Record a short stupid video with your web cam or a screen recording device. ( Here is a super easy free software to do it with ) Then upload it to youtube and place a link in the description section
4. Send 20 blog blueprint links to your Ezine article and your youtube video (you will also start to see your yotube video rank in google as well.)
Why This Works
1. Google loves high PR blog backlinks (blog blueprint)
2. Google loves high pr article links that have links going to them (ezine)
3. Google LOVES youtube with a unholy passion
4. Google goes crazy for different types of high quality links all pointing to one site

Now that I see that this site is ranking highly it is time to really start amping up the content on the site and start aggressively backlinking. I will be getting into exactly how I do this in my next post (and I promise it is much sexyier)
Pretty simple eh?

I see TurkeyBurgers ranking #1 in my google search and this is without me logged into Google. Something off?
Lol click the wheel at the top and disable history based searching. happens whether you logged in or out.
You got me excited to…jerk =P
Thanks that’s actually a helpful tip. Also sort of gay of Google when I’m not signed into an account at all. I suppose very helpful if you can get people to click on a link once though.
Hey, I have surgery on the 6th, any chance I can still get the one dollar deal because ill probably be in a morphine coma on the 7th 😛 don’t worry i’m not looking for pity simply curious?
Yes, if you remind me via my email a few days after Ill send you a link [email protected]
Turkey burgers, two words brah. Pretty cool man, I LOVE the fact that you guys dig right into some quality case studies, they are by far the best learning tool for noobs.
Thanks buddy! We do not call them noobs here though, we call them…errr…okay noobs is just to fun to say!
I’m more of a beef guy 🙂
THE HELL WITH YOU SIR!!!
Web browing / no web browing…
either way, the site is ranking pretty high..
Becker, I’m hearing a lot about high PR blog networks for backlinking, and it’s evident how effective they are..
but I’ve also heard of Authority Link Network.. do you have any experience with it at all, in comparison to the BB..
Is blog BB considered blackhat?
How soon did you start blog blue print linking. Immediately or did you wait a week or two to start seoing?
Cool case study. According to Scroogle you are actually number 3 in Google already. Pretty awesome! I think the welcome box on your site is a little off though.
One problem for me though… I am not a member of BB and it is shut down at the moment. Can you suggest a replacement?
And do you use exact match anchor text with your bl’s or do you mix them up?
yeah the site needs a we bit of work.
Also your using the wrong blog blueprint. Use the link in the post
I mix them up with other keywords I am targeting : Turkey burgers, turkey burgers recipes, Turkey Leftovers etc =D
YEAH! I bought the dog and the pills! I am ready. Muhahaha!
Check out the how to fuck a girl clip 😀
Really full of value ! No really.
lol i really need to seperate my CF vids lol
No point wasting the bb links to empower youtube vids as their links are nofollow.
skeptical hippy wants to know the age of the domain
skeptical Hippy can check it out on http://whois.domaintools.com/turkeyburgers.org. Registered on August 8. So I can assume Becker let it age a few months first (which is what I always do too) with minimal work done on the domain (just content, maybe 1 backlink etc)
Alex, one question, you know top bar where you have your adsense ads in the orange.
How do I do that?
Any youtube links or anything, I tried searching around but I can’t figure it out.
Ranked 3rd on Google with close to no content, only from back links is what I have gathered from reading this page?
Backlinks and solid on page SEO
Remember though content is essential for keeping your rank, if people do not use your site google will not use you
Hi mate! Here’s how your site looks like in my laptop Firefox: http://img11.imageshack.us/img11/7639/clipboard01kl.png
I just got SEO Hybrid and I am setting up a site following your guide.
One question re content – I guess your not sitting there writing turkey recipes etc, so where do you get it and how much is needed?
You get the content either from your own research or by paying others that can write an article for you. Another alternatives that you can use potentially is buy ebooks/content with resell rights. I’m trying out email lists so I bought a few ebooks with resell rights to use for content.
Is Blog Blueprint still working based on the most recent update of google? I heard a lot of blog networks got whacked.
As far as I know it’s still indexed, but obviously this does not mean it will always be like this (aka make sure to build other links for when/if the other networks get de-indexed)
