Search engine optimization, with or without SEO proxies, is becoming a difficult game for everybody involved. However, there are still ways in which one can influence the ranking of his website or the websites of his clients. Moreover, everybody starting preaching the death of SEO automation tools and SEO proxies. But, even in 2017 there are ways in which one use them and still get results and improve the rankings of his assets. In this article, we are going to present a way in which you can still use SEO automation tools and SEO proxies.
HOW TO USE SEO PROXIES
Marketers use SEO proxies to perform multiple queries on search engines or to scrape for information.
SEO proxies are needed because performing those multiple queries on a search engine, from the same IP, will most likely result in your IP banned on the underlying search engine.
Previously marketers were using SEO proxies to create backlinks for their PBN 2nd tier or their money-sites. While this has been a widespread practice along the years, its results has started to bring diminishing returns. Moreover, reckless automated backlink building through SEO proxies can lead to a penalty and ranking downgrade.
HOW TO USE SEO PROXIES THE SAFE WAY
While performing automated backlink building through SEO proxies can lead to a penalty, there are certain ways in which one can still use SEO proxies and build backlinks in a safe way.
The safe way of using SEO proxies involves using them to create backlinks toward 2nd tier authority domains. Domains and pages that have backlinks towards your main website.
This is considered a safe way because, unlike PBN backlinks, those created towards an authority 2nd tier website will offer a more natural structure.
For example, creating a few hundred backlinks in a 30 days period for a blog that is six months old and has only 20 articles will look artificial. Regardless of the SEO proxies and automation tools you are using, a six month’s blog can easily be penalized and the links toward which is pointing can suffer penalties as well.
However, you can apply the same philosophy but make the backlink building look more natural. All you have to do is to replace the PBN blog domain with authority domains that are a few years old and they are recognized by Google as authorities in their field.
WHAT ARE 2ND TIER BACKLINKS FROM AUTHORITY WEBSITES?
Second tier backlinks from authority websites are simply links directed at your website from niche related and SEO friendly pages of authority websites.
You should think of them as guest posts created on authority websites. And inside their content, there are links directed at your website. Above we mentioned they are SEO friendly. Indeed, most forums and authority websites have their link structure and on-page SEO structure very friendly towards search engines. We will develop this idea towards the end of the article.
Furthermore, one can develop a backlink structure pointing at these articles is a more natural way by using SEO proxies.
A marketer needs to use SEO proxies to create other backlinks pointing to these articles and pieces of content. Because these pages with relevant content and links to your website are part of authority websites, the link buildup will have a more natural look. Thus you can use your SEO proxies freely to populate the web with bloc comments and forum posts linking to your 2nd tier authority website content.
BUILD SMART – USE SEO PROXIES TO SPREAD CONTENT
The headline of this paragraph is called build smart. We must confess, this is all that matter in your use of SEO proxies.
First, you must create niche related content. Next you must populate this content with links pointing at your website. Furthermore, at this stage you should not use SEO proxies.
The next step is to manually look for authority websites and domains that allow content posting. Suitable for this step are niche related forums, blogging platforms or youtube videos.
These authority domains usually have a perfect on-page SEO. Meaning that for any given piece of content, either a forum thread or article, your desired keywords will be inserted in the meta description, link, title and body. Thus, making this domain’s perfect for indexing and creating backlinks to your website.
Now is the time to use SEO proxies. Use them to look for other relevant forums where to post links pointing to the blogging platform, thus making backlinks for your second tier.
In addition, you should also look for relevant blog articles where you will be able to post backlinks pointing at your forum threads. Thus, making some more backlinks for your 2nd tier.
Moreover, all those backlinks pointing at your 2nd tier authority website will eventually spill some ‘link juice’ towards your main website.
Using SEO proxies without a clear and safe methodology can lead to disastrous results. However, you can build backlinks successfully through SEO proxies if you follow the above mentioned method by using authority websites as 2nd tier backlinks.
