Linking Strategy for FlightSimulatorInfo.com - Blog Bootcamp

In case you don't recognize it... www.flightsimulatorinfo.com was the site Mark created during the blogging bootcamp.

Traffic Travis indicates that the site has almost 100 PR 3-7 backlinks. Included are bunches of .edu's.

Most of the links are from blogs unrelated to gaming or flight simulators & many are no follow.

I know of only 2 other of Mark's affiliate sites - wowblackbook and beekeepingbees. Neither of them have anywhere near that amount of high PR backlinks.

I'm wondering if we have a new backlinking strategy in the making and how it is working?

Unfortunately, the bootcamp is finished so no chance for Q & A.

Anyone care to comment?

Thanks, Joe

Mark has outsources the link building for the site so he has someone else building all of the links for him. I'm sure they aren't 100% following the Mark's strategy but you have to remember that Mark is just giving one strategy.

Mark also mentioned that he was planning on doing some update webinars for the site over time so we'll probably learn more about it later. I'm sure he wants to have to good results before he does.

Cheers,

-Tom

If you really want high pr backlinks focus on strategies like Link bait, Guest posting, Networking etc.

Tom, I hear what you're saying but as (paying) premium members we should be given the benefit of getting the information that Joe has taken the time to unravel and also how, whoever did it, achieved it.

Being paying members of Affilorama should give us ongoing benefits and not just once-off information don't you think. Nothing's become of the follow-up for two months now.

If you are a premium member then you already have all of the tools you need at your disposal.

Joe mentioned EDU sites... well there is the "Trusted Sites Tool" which will find you EDU sites and even sort by PR.

Getting 100% relevant links is ideal but not always possible. I'm guessing there aren't hundreds of flight simular blogs or websites out there. So many times you have to branch elsewhere. Focus on relevant links but non-relevant links still help.

Follow vs. No-Follow is whole other story. There is a lot of debate as to the usefulness of No-Follow links but remember that naturally a search engine would expect to see a wide variety of links including no-follow.

And even thought they may be no-follow for Google, that might not be the case for yahoo, msn, and other search engines.

I think it should be pretty obvious that this niche/website is a bit more of a challenge and everyone is going to find Niches that are. Will it make him money? Of course but maybe not as much as the WOW site. Or maybe it will but it's going to take a lot more effort. You never really know.

Find something that does work for you and milk it for everything it's worth.

And I'm sure there will be an update at some point but remember that SEO results can take many many months. Maybe PPC didn't work out. Or maybe it would but that might defeat the purpose of the bootcamp. (I just checked and didn't see any obvious PPC advertising).

So it may be many more months before Mark's website gets somewhere with SEO and he has some results to share. Otherwise it would just be a waste of everyone's time.
