It's back...

The Golden Age - a time before many of you even dipped your toes into this wretched game of SEO - has returned. The elders here remember a world where you could pick nearly any holy grail keyword you wanted and ram fist your way straight to the top.

My friends, it's back.
This isn't some fortunate event that everyone gets to take part in. It's been engineered in the lab, quietly and patiently, by two veteran juggernauts who have both singlehandedly changed the SEO landscape more than once. There were consequences to be sure... the main one being fat fucking wallets.

~ LINKS ON FIRE ~
1) Real Outreach
2) Niche-Relevance
3) Proprietary Boost

10 Links + Boosts
Position 13 to 3

The above ranking graphs (and more below) are the proof in the pudding. We're talking about some of the most competitive keywords in the most competitive locations in the most competitive and valuable industries.

How much money would you save if you could stop paying $400 per freaking click?
How much money would you make if just one of many conversions was worth mid-five figures?

And that's just the big boy SERPs. Your Amazon Affiliate site? Piece of cake. Your CPM display ad site ranking for an extra 30k volume term? Let's do it. Hell, we can parasite off of a domain like Medium, too. Talk to me about the best angle of attack if you need some guidance.

What This Is Not
If you've been in this business for long enough, you've seen all the games get played. Let me put those concerns to rest right off the bat:
  • This isn't backdoor payments to editors on big sites with nofollow links on noindex'd profiles.
  • This isn't pretend outreach with links placed on some shoddy PBN that'll get you penalized.
  • This isn't a bait-and-switch set of links on open-registration sites that anyone can join.
  • This isn't illegal niche edits on hacked websites with a 75% chance of the link being removed.
  • This isn't mass spam to your website that the algorithm will recognize and ignore.
If you want deeper explanations of how the next part is possible, then read the FAQ in the next post.

What Is It Then?
We have a database of more than a thousand of sites separated by niche that my partner's team outreached to and have formed agreements with to accept guest posts or link insertions for real businesses and real website companies.

We craft full articles, new sentences, or paragraphs as needed, or we find the perfect anchors for you in existing content. Which of those happens is based on the website owners demands, your demands, and what we think is right for each unique scenario. These are either on niche-relevant sites or in niche-relevant articles on more powerful sites, depending on the inventory.

And then there's the proprietary boost which I'll discuss next. Again, read the FAQ below in the next post for the full details.

Proprietary Boost
This is the new "old stuff" that works. We're talking about 5 Tiers of link power being filtered down through safer and safer tiers until it hits your page like high pressure napalm firing out of a tiny nozzle. This will launch your site upwards in the SERPs like an accidental cigarette ash at a world-class fireworks show.

Should you be worried about a potential negative impact done to your site? Nope. Only one link points at your site. We've also developed a method to make this entirely safe. If at any time you think it's hurting you, all of the boost can be removed at the drop of a dime. If you're savvy, you can figure out what I'm saying here. We have a literal on-off switch in place. We've never had to use it, but we cover all bases to assure our clients that the only direction is up.

I can't tell you more than that. Two main goals were in place when this method was created: 1) It had to be safe and 2) It can't be reverse-engineered and ruined by idiots. That means you won't get a report for the boost portion of this, but you will for the rest.

As you can see, we rank in big money, highly volatile niches and sustain them through several updates once the campaigns end. What do you think happens in normal, non-super-human niches?

It's time to win. This is as close as you'll get to the tightly-held secrets of the inner circle of the ancient veterans... We've been in the game since before Google even launched. We can't be outmaneuvered.

The Details

Quality of Your Site: We can't accept trash sites. Your site must be reasonably designed, free of spam links, and feature decent content. This is not for churn and burn garbage. We're working with real webmasters with veto power, so bring your A-game.

Anchor Text: We can no longer take your exact-match anchor text requests. If you must have a specific anchor text, consider an upgrade to a guest post. Otherwise, we will use a natural and related anchor text that either already exists or we craft personally. The boosts will take care of anchor-based relevance. Please tell us the target parent keyword when ordering.

Outbound Links: If you want to make sure your link is the only outbound link on the page, you will need to upgrade to a guest post. Most of the time there will be other links, whether internal or external. This is a good thing and there's no need to get greedy about the page rank juice. We boost it way up.

Niches Allowed: Most niches are allowed but our inventory gets slimmer when it comes to seedier niches and higher DR scores. Please ask first if you're working in Adult, Casino, Crypto, Cannabis, etc. We don't do Pharma, anything illegal, or anything flirting with illegality. CBD is good to go.

Bulk Purchases: Depending on your niche and how high of a DR score you choose, the inventory may become slimmer. This is something we'll discuss when you reach out. There are no bulk discounts as we are operating on fixed costs.

Ordering Process: Reach out with a PM or an email and we'll discuss your details, then I'll generate an invoice for you. Simple and pleasant.

Reports: The reports are very basic. You'll receive the URLs to the pages featuring your links. We don't provide reports on the higher tiers for the reasons mentioned in the FAQ.

Refunds: Full refunds can only be offered before the work begins. There are no partial refunds. Once we've paid the site owners for your tier 1 placement and begun building the tiers, that means employees have begun working and/or have been paid as well.

Turn Around Time: Please allow 30 days for the work to be completed. Please don't check in with us before that amount of time has elapsed. The answer will be the same every time: "Please allow 30 days for the work to be completed". It may be faster, but expect around a month. Allow around 6 weeks typically from delivery for the maximum effect in the SERPs to take place.

Sometimes We Say 'No': There are times when we simply can't get the link or links for you. We thought we could but the website owners felt otherwise or there was some other complication. It's rare but in these cases we can refund you in full or you can use the credit on another website of your own, etc. That's just a heads up. We're dealing with real people for the link placements and stuff happens.

Foreign Language Sites: This is a case by case basis depending on the webmasters in your niche in our inventory. Usually proper nouns or brand names work better than an entire phrase in a non-English language. We only work with English language sites.

FAQ's - Please Read Before Ordering
Please read the following frequently asked questions before ordering. If you have a general question, it is likely already answered here.

1) What kind of links are these?

Each tier 1 link is a contextual link anchored within the main content of an article on a DR 40+ to DR 70+ domain. It will either be a link insertion in an existing article or a brand new guest post (based on your selection).

These will either be on a niche-relevant site or on a more general site with a niche-relevant article. It totally depends on how weird your niche is and the available inventory which gets slimmer with higher DR orders. But either way, Google runs a page-level algorithm, so it's fine either way. You're going to love it.

The proprietary boost contains various types of links for diversification. They are created in 5 tiers, with the most voluminous and least valuable in the highest tiers, each being filtered down safely through the lower tiers, which increase in quality as you go.

2) Are these links safe for my site?

The first tier links are as safe and good as they come. They are of the highest quality possible online, the kind you would receive by performing your own manual outreach, and more powerful.

The boosts are also completely safe because we have worked in a mechanism that literally works like an on-off switch. At any time, we can turn off the fire hose of juice if you desire. We've yet to have that request be made, but know that if you choose to do that it will take time for Google to re-crawl the lower tiers to realize the faucet has been turned off. We will work to make this occur faster.

These links have been safely used on our money sites, on professionals' websites, in local mom & pop sites, on big brand national websites, on affiliate sites, on parasite pages, and everything else. This has been by our own doing and by the hand of agencies for their clients. It's fine and works.

3) Are these links right for me?

We flat out don't want to work with nervous SEO's. If you don't understand how this stuff works (like the "bounce" mentioned below), you're better off looking elsewhere. You can also ask about getting these links without the boost. Also, if these links stretch your budget too far, don't order. You can find something closer to your price range and not cause us both the added stress.

4) How should I use these links?

You want to aim these at pages that you're trying to rank for big money keywords. They don't just move the needle, they slam it so hard to the right that it shatters the glass. Make it count.

That means you don't want to aim them at your homepage or about page or anything other than a money-making page designed with the intent of the SERP in mind and with proper on-page optimization done. Your site shouldn't be incredibly slow either. All of this effects your results, so make sure you have your game tight on your own side first.

My recommendation is to aim this at existing pages that are already ranking somewhere in the top 100 of the SERPs. If you publish a new page and then hit it with this, you're nearly guaranteeing that you'll see the "bounce" discussed below and that it lasts the maximum amount of time. Use an aged, indexed, and optimized page.

5) What about anchor texts? (We choose them for you)

We originally accepted anchor text requests here on BuSo, but we never did before launching here for good reason: It's not needed. Our method drives as much relevancy as it does page rank juice even without specially crafted anchor texts.

We're removing that option because it's not necessary and never has been with our methods, but I did offere it because I know a lot of you want that level of control. We can't always secure specific anchor text requests, and trying to accommodate it has become a serious bottleneck.

So we're back to choosing the anchors ourselves, which is how our method was designed. They will be natural and they will be relevant, and then we cram more relevancy down the search engine's throat with the boost. And trust me, it works.

We've also found that by not using exact-match anchors, you're at far less of a risk of experiencing a negative bounce. It's the exact-match anchors in combination with the massive amount of page rank juice we send that causes that reaction. Removing the hype-targeted anchors reduces that occurrence reaction big time.

If you must have a specific anchor text, then you'll need to upgrade to a guest post. If you're trying to balance out your anchor text ratios or build out a profile in a specific way, do that with other links, because it's far more beneficial to keep it natural on these.

6) How many links do I need?

There's no exact answer that we can give you, however I can give you a roundabout and informed guess. You can ask me this question in private if you're willing to share your URL and keyword as well.

The absolute toughest keywords in the toughest niches should start with a 20 pack of links + boosts. I recommend seeing where that lands you first. After that, I recommend you begin dripping another 5 to 10 links + boosts per month to reach the desired ranking and to maintain it.

For medium competition keywords, you can kick the can around and start with a 5 pack, but if the profit potential is much higher then I'd go with a 10 pack. Profit potential is partially based on your monetization method and optimization for that method.

For lower competition keywords, you can probably get away with a 2 pack to start, or if you want to play it safe and slam it home you can opt for a 5 pack. Just make sure you compare your profit potential over time with the cost of the package. Don't aim for vanity rankings, go where the money is.

Though we offer them as single links + boosts, I personally recommend ordering no less than a 2 pack in most every case as a minimum unless you're targeting the weakest competition terms with low volume, in which case even 1 link + boost is overkill but will get the job done.

7) Do I need a continuing drip of links?

Only the big boys in the most competitive and monitored SERPs have needed a continual drip. If you look at the ranking graphs above, you'll see that some of the big boy clients chose to pause their drip campaigns during the Covid pandemic when they weren't receiving as many clients of their own.

After a few algorithm updates these hyper-competitive SERPs saw the typical shake-up, which can usually be counteracted by a regular stream of new link campaigns. There's no guarantees, since every time Google turns a dial even the slightest amount it can make a huge impact on these kind of SERPs.

Your more standard affiliate keywords and informational queries don't need a drip. We're seeing low to low-medium competition rankings stick, and medium competition ones may slide backwards a wee bit during updates.You might desire a couple maintenance links later as the ranking factors shift about and some of the boost links decay, but it'll be nothing like the big boys need. We'll be here for you either way.

8) How Many URLs and anchors can I provide?

While I recommend concentrating your links on one page, if you know what you're doing you can break up your order however you like. For instance, if you know you want to target two pages with 5 links + boosts each, then you can order a 10 pack and split it in half.

But ordering a 20 pack and splitting it across 20 URLs isn't going to make the impact you want. Keep your target narrow. It's better to get one or two solid wins than 20 separate "kind of almost wins." Don't spray and pray. Come in with a tight game plan and let's make it happen.

You don't get to (or need to) choose the anchor texts (unless you upgrade to a guest post). We will find and secure natural and related anchor texts for you, and then we reinforce the anchors related to your keyword with the boosts. You get all of the benefit while looking natural.

9) Can you look over my game plan?

Yes. After you place your order, we can go over your details and make sure you're maximizing the opportunity. But please don't hit me up and be a tire kicker or try to get free consulting. It's just silly and it happens way too often and I don't fall for it.

10) Why can't I see the boost links in my backlink checker?

Everything beyond the first tier is invisible to backlink checkers (on purpose). There's two reasons for this: it keeps your competitors from sniffing you out and it keeps our competitors from back-engineering this process. Safety from Google is baked in, and this is how we keep you and us safe from other SEO's.

11) My rankings went down temporarily, why?

Google has a randomization factor that seems to be triggered by a large increase in page rank juice and targeted anchor texts. They want to confuse SEO's and see if you're dumb enough to undo your work, in which case they confirm algorithmically that you're a spammer. The point is to stop SEO's from being able to run scientific tests to back-engineer their black box algorithm.

When you get a large influx of page rank sometimes you get an immediate boost, sometimes you see a neutral effect, and sometimes you see a backwards "bounce" as we used to call it. A backwards bounce is a good sign that you're going to shoot way past where you started very soon. We're honestly seeing that more than we aren't these days.

The neutral "no reaction" and the backwards bounce are both temporary. It can take up to 90 days to shoot forward, but even that time frame is randomized. Usually it lasts no longer than three to six weeks. Sometimes when it's released, you shoot right up in the rankings. Other times you crawl your way up. Sometimes you don't shoot up until the next semi-big algorithm update happens.

If you aren't comfortable with this possible waiting period and uncertainty, this isn't for you. You may need more experience before you trust Google's process. If it makes you ancy and you start counting the days, this may have stretched your budget too far. Remember, this is an agency offering for big clients who want big results and expect the flux. Make sure you understand that the bounce may occur before the rewards come in.

If, at any time, you want to pull the plug on it, we have worked in a literal on-off switch and can cut this fire hose of page rank juice off in an instant. Google will need to re-crawl the lower tiers, but you can rest assured your site is safe for the long-term. All you'll be left with is the guest posts or the link insertions.

12) How come this site only gets X amount of traffic?

The amount of organic traffic a site gets from Google isn't a measure of how much page rank it can pass to your site. We have deals with sites that are actual magazines, news companies, businesses, and social media plays. Not every website is concerned with Google.

The types of sites described above tend to attract more links (like orders of magnitude more links) than SEO-based sites do. But at the end of the day, they aren't doing on-page optimization around keywords, so they don't accumulate a ton of Google traffic.

What they do is rank for a metric ton of keywords, just not high enough to get tons of organic traffic. If a site can rank in the top 50 for hundreds of thousands of keywords without even having the keyword in the page title or header tags, it's extremely powerful.

As an example I shared with someone recently, there's a site that's DR80, has 53.3K referring domains, and 14 million backlinks. It probably gets at least 100,000 visits every month just from people typing the domain into their browser. It gets millions of visits a month from social media and return visitors. You know how much it gets from Google's organic traffic? 10.2K visitors. Are you going to say no to a DR80 link from a real business with 50 employees because they don't care about on-page because they don't need on-page?

All we care about is domain and/or page-level niche relevance, securing your link placement with the most effective anchor text, sending a metric boatload of page rank to your page, and improving your rankings. If you can complain about that, this service is not for you.

13) How much can I meddle in the process?

None, at all. You can't pick the sites and you can't see the list. You can't pick your anchors. You need to trust us and our process. We've been doing this and doing it well for longer than some builders have been alive, seriously. We're old and experienced.

What I can assure you is that you'll get a link on a page that will become extremely juicy on an already juicy domain. Will the site have the prettiest design? Maybe. Will the writing be magazine quality? Maybe. At the same time... maybe not.

Those things don't matter here. What matters here is the link-oriented power, and that's what we deliver. The bottom line is that we care about the results that you receive. We don't care about nitpicking random crap.

14) What does pre-outreach mean?

My partner serves some of the biggest agencies and businesses in the USA. Part of fulfilling the demand was a massive outreach operation to tens of thousands of websites to see who would be game to accept guest posts or link insertions from real businesses. My partner now has a database of over a thousand of sites separated by niche we can use.

You may be skeptical of this, as was I early on. But I have access to the database and have seen the ins-and-outs of the actual outreach operation. He has an entire army crafting manual responses to any website interested in the offer. I can't exactly prove it to you, so you'll have to take my word that it's real. "That's exactly what a niche-edit seller would say!" I know, but hopefully I have enough good will with you guys to trust that I'm not lying until some reviews come in, in which case we can lay that to rest.

15) Who are you guys?

We've both made Google change their algorithm. We've made the news with our legal but sneaky exploits. We invented many methods that are common place now. We've also had Google crawl up our asses with fine-tooth combs and have been the targets of doxxing and hacking attempts due to our past successes. If our identities seem vague or secretive, this is why. I'm sure you, as an SEO, understand.

As you can see, the bounce was in effect above, but it was short-lived and minor in this instance. I'll be sharing more instances of the bounce and then the skyrocketing to the top so you know what to expect in case you see it start happening.

Before reviews for this specific service come in, I'll share some from other BuSo users regarding different types of work I've done with them so you can see I don't play around.

@CCarter says:
Ryuzaki's speed optimization techniques are second to none. He's shown me tactics and tricks to improve Wordpress installs and stand-alone sites that I still use to this day - which I had no clue existed. For that to happen it literally means he has mastered speed optimization to a 9th-degree black belt level. He is one of only two people I ever recommend for website design, on-page SEO, and speed optimization to my personal friends. Two critical things that sets him apart from others is he's on-time and professional - whether it's phone calls or with deadlines, I know that if I send my friends to Ryuzaki they'll get a website that's going to blow the competition away and move the needle in terms of SEO and generating traffic.​
-----
Here's the deal. Too many people are buying the propaganda. Google and Guru Bloggers have everyone scared shitless to make power moves. They hold you down on purpose to keep you reliant on their little ecosystem of nonsense.

There's gurus telling you never to build a link because they never did either, and it's all bullshit and I can prove it in nearly every instance. They're telling you to compensate for this by targeting search terms with zero competition and even zero search volume. How much money does that end up making you?

Why are people bragging about making their first penny? Why has this been normalized? It's because you're being preyed upon by people who profit by holding you back, who celebrate your first penny with you as you subscribe to their secret groups and buy their courses.

Stop that shit. You can win NOW if you're willing to shake off the silly shit, think big, act big, and invest in yourself and your business. If you fall into that camp, stop being a nitwit. There's people out there winning in ways you can't believe. Let us show you how.

It's a case by case basis. It will depend largely on the webmasters in our list in your niche, as well as the anchor text we settle on. Proper nouns in another language work out well. Entire phrases in a non-English language are going to be more difficult to place.

Feel free to reach out and we can take a closer look. Thanks for the question. I'll add it into the OP.

Review
Most of the core crew here knows, but Ryuzaki and I have been doing some legit work together for the better part of the past decade. Longer than that, actually...now that I think of it. Most recently he redesigned the WordAgents site.

My trust in his services and skill sets is so high at this point, that I find it emotionally uncomfortable to use anyone else when he's not available for whatever reason. I know, when I work with Ryuzaki, that I don't have to worry. He understands what I need and he makes sure it gets done correctly. If you've been in this game for any amount of time, you'll know that's a rare trait.

On top of my personal trust for him, Ryuzaki also knows his shit. The dude walks the talk. I have intimate knowledge of his personal projects and I can see his success first hand.

That's why it was a no-brainer for me to go in on his new link service. The simple fact that he points these to his own properties is all I needed to hear.

I don't usually mess around with link insertions all that much. But, I'm all for it knowing that Ryuzaki is curating only the best opportunities.

You're getting an honest bang for your buck when you buy "Links on Fire." This service has the Stackcash Seal of Approval!

Thanks, @stackcash. Let us know how it goes once the rankings settle in.

Speaking of rankings...



600 volume
$185 Adwords CPC
2 Links + Boosts
Position 7 to 1

(Generated 3 leads in 10 days already)
That's 9 days from the Tier 1 link and 5 days since the Boosts were built to jump up and dance between #1 and #2. It's stable since the climb (the last day on the graph is today) and will continue that way.

Someone in an incredibly difficult niche is about to have a nice Summer. How much is each lead worth if the CPC is $185? Each is worth many multiples more than the cost to slam to the top of the page. They're proud they didn't pussyfoot around wondering if they should order.

Let it be you, next:

In the meantime...

Testimonial
As promised, while we wait for more reviews to come in (Thanks to @stackcash in the post above for his review), here's another testimonial from another BuSo member for other projects I've worked on:

@TinFoilMan says:
I recently hired Ryuzaki to do some work on a website of mine (speeding up and tidying up). With zero experience coding or anything technical and a website that is generating traffic and revenue, I didn't want to hand over my logins to someone I didn't trust.​
You only have to read through the mass of posts that Ryu has done over the years to see that this is somebody who genuinely wants to help, and with some big names in this forum singing his praises, I took the leap.​
I won't lie, he is not cheap, but why would he be. You pay peanuts, you get monkeys. He could also be working on his own projects generating recurring revenue rather than working on mine, and being in this industry I completely understand that.​
What I got though was some massive improvements in page size, load time etc etc. This guy is thorough, I had to take a day off work just to read the PDF reports he gave me (kidding but they are extremely detailed)​
Would I recommend him? Absolutely. Communication was excellent, explanations are clear and understandable (remember I'm a dummy). I personally try and stick to being good at a few things and then find people who are good at the other things I'm not. That would be Ryuzaki.​

-----​

For the BuSo crowd, I've redesigned websites, speed optimized their projects, fixed technical SEO problems, and much more. But what everyone here doesn't know is, my most ancient and powerful skill is in link acquisition and development. There's honestly only one person I know better at it than me, and that's who I'm teamed up with here.

Who else can you point to knocking down top rankings in $400+ CPC niches like it's a breeze? Let me tell you, it's not a breeze. You're looking at over 15 years of testing and study on my side, and nearly 20 from my partner. You're in dedicated, consistent hands when you roll with us.

Stop getting duped. That guest post is on a PBN site. Those niche edits are illegal. That editorial is nofollow and noindex. That contextual is open registration and free.

Our links are the kind that your client will show their momma and end up rekindling their strained relationship (because they paid off her mortgage and bought her a new car).

I'd like to thank everyone that has reached out and placed their trust in me and this operation.

Among our conversations there's a common question that pops up, which is "How much damage can just one Link + Boost do?"

In the ranking graphs above I've shown you instances of 10 Links + Boosts, up to 31 in the most competitive SERPs around. I've also shared an instance where only 2 Links + Boosts were needed to slam a page to the #1 spot for an equally competitive term.

So I can see why this question would come up. It can be confusing. A lot of it has to do with the keyword competition, where your page already ranks, the on-page optimization, the page speed, the existing links to the domain and the page itself, the anchor text usage, etc. These are things I'll help you with if I think there's easy wins for you to apply along side our Links + Boosts.

Single Link + Boost Example

Obviously there's no one-size-fits-all answer to this question of "How powerful is one package?" But I can definitely help give you some perspective with the ranking graph below:

$2.50 Adwords CPC
1 Link + Boost
Position 67 to 13

(The page has no other backlinks)
This is from one of my own projects. This keyword is no walk in the park at an Ahref's Keyword Difficulty of 42. It actually has competition all the way out to ranking #100, because this is one of the largest verticals possible. I couldn't find a site in the top 100 that wasn't at least 10 years old, with most in the 20+ years range. The lowest DR I saw besides mine was DR40.

My domain isn't that powerful either. It's one I bought that has some links to the homepage, but there was literally zero links to any inner pages up until I hit this page with a Link + Boost as a test.

This is a single Molotov Cocktail DR40+ package. I know how to do solid on-page, and on the strength of that alone plus the handful of links to the homepage that lands the site around a DR30, the post indexed in at position #85 and settled in a range #65 - #75 on average, competing against giant magazines, celebrities, big authority sites, and TV networks.

At the time of the Tier 1 Link drop (and the Boost, too), the post was ranking at #67. It shot up to spot #37 and stabilized there, plus or minus a spot or two. It held strong through a Google Update as you can see, and continued to hold it's spot around #37 and #38. [EDIT: I added in a 2nd graph to show what happens once Google does its offline calculations of our packages and rolls it into the live algo, about every 3 months].

The top 10 sites in this SERP range from DR70 to DR91, with a range of ~300-500 links to their ranking pages. Their domains themselves range from 1.78 million backlinks up to 4.93 million. It's valuable because this one term has 15,000 volume and all of the long-tails and one-time searches likely multiply that by 10 at least.

This is what one Link + Boost from our lowest package can do on a page with zero links in a highly competitive SERP that my site has no business trying to compete in yet. We're constantly running these types of tests so we know what to recommend to you and how to maximize the effectiveness.

I'll loop back around as the domain grows stronger over time and earns more and more traffic, and ultimately hammer this page like we would any other client's pages in these types of SERPs and drive it on home. I estimate this would be worth $4,500 to $5,000 per month for me (and that's a conservative estimate), so I'll continue to drip a Link + Boost to it monthly as long as it holds.

This is not only an example of what a single shot of our lowest level package can do, but also how to think about how many packages you want to hit your pages with.

I will always recommend at least 2, even for the least competitive keywords. And if you know you need, say... 5 Links + Boost, I don't recommend pussy footing around and starting with 2 and seeing how that shakes out. Go ahead and slam it because you're losing time otherwise, and time is not only of the essence, but time is money.

In the FAQ, I mentioned that sometimes we can't find a placement for you. Sometimes that's because there's no appropriate sites or content related to your niche. Sometimes the webmasters say no to your site. It's extremely rare, but we ran into it recently.

A customer asked for two DR40+ links and a DR50+ link. We had trouble finding content in those ranges for his site, so we decided to over-deliver massively. Instead of the DR40+ and DR50+ range, he got three DR70+ links. That's what we call "Links on Fire".

I can't promise this will be the case for you, but when working with us, being unlucky usually ends up meaning being extremely lucky, because we don't tolerate not meeting and exceeding expectations. I know this gentleman's clients will be thrilled, as will their rankings.

Speaking of rankings, here's a newer one for you to drool over that further exhibits the value of the work we can do for you. We don't only crush high value keywords like this, but it's hard for me to resist showing you these:



480 Volume
$225 Adwords CPC
2 Links + Boosts
Position 3 to 1

(Already generated a $2,500 lead)​

The person that ordered this package didn't waste time tire kicking and understood exactly what was to be gained. He hit me up, I got back to him within minutes, he shot over his details and payment, and we went to work and got it all done on the same day.

Within a couple weeks he was dominating and already recouped his investment three times over. That ROI is going to be astronomical by this time next week. The only thing stopping you from having a story like this is your own hesitation.

I mentioned above that I'd drip out testimonials for me as a person until reviews are rolling in...

Testimonial
These agency guys are too busy to take the time to rant and rave over (and smart enough not to give us the credit for) the success of their clients. They want us to be their dirty little secret. So here's another testimonial of mine in the meantime:

@miketpowell says:
Working with Ryuzaki has been an absolute pleasure. With his speed and professionalism to a wealth of industry knowledge and experience, he has an amazing skill set. From the outset of the project, Ryuzaki was always concerned with not only delivering what we wanted but what we needed. It's important to understand that when you're hiring a master to help you with something that you let them give some direction to your idea.​
Most importantly I know Ryuzaki stands behind his work and provides continued support on projects. Knowing that even years from now if a problem arose with something he created (unlikely more like someone new breaks something) he won't hesitate to help fix it and make it right.​

-----
The nightmare for agency owners is finding quality vendors to spend their clients' budget with. Will you have to nervously explain once again next month that "SEO takes a long time to kick in" or will you send them impressive ranking graphs and revenue charts?

Our solid wins means your Customer Lifetime Value for your clients can shoot through the roof. Acquiring clients is a bitch, and keeping them around used to be until Links on Fire came into your life. Contact us, let us do the work, and you can go kick your feet up or work on your personal projects. Life was never meant to be hard!

Thank you to all of those supporting our business here (and reaping the benefits!). We're happy to report that our turn-around-times for the Tier 1 placements have been extremely fast (a few days) in all cases except for one.

Why is that one taking a little longer? Because that person is getting a free upgrade to a guest post to secure a better placement! That's right, we're still over-delivering like crazy. Here's some examples recently:

Over-Delivery
OrderedDeliveredRD'sLinks
DR70+DR8615K13.5M
DR40+DR6816.5K5.75M
DR40+DR626.85K10.5M
DR50+DR682.70K31.3K

We can't promise every order gets these levels of over-delivery, but we do our best to sweeten the deal for our supporters. You think a DR86 link is going to do some damage? You know it, especially after we boost that playboy with our proprietary combustible propellant. DR86 is straight fire.

-----
Let me share some recent results:



24,000 Volume / KD26
$4 Adwords CPC
1 Link + Boost
Position 8 to 3




9,700 Volume / KD20
$3 Adwords CPC
2 Links + Boosts
Position 9 to 3




1,600 Volume / KD06
$2 Adwords CPC
2 Links + Boosts
Position 10 to 3




2,000 Volume / KD21
$5.50 Adwords CPC
1 Links + Boosts
Position 2 to 1

This is the impact received from just 1 or 2 links. We haven't even completed the boosts yet. These are great signs that these pages are going to react well and finish their ascent to the top position.

Rather than wait to show you them hit #1 (except the last graph, which already did), I wanted to go ahead and show you this progress to set realistic expectations about how this process works, like I did in the post two above this one. Understanding how it plays out and the number of links you should be using is critical to getting the results you want.

This guy spread his links out across about 5 pages rather than focusing on one. His page speed was phenomenal (90+ on Pagespeed Insights for Mobile!), which contributed to his success with such a low volume of links per page.

I always recommend at least 2 Links + Boosts per page as a minimum and to focus on fewer pages to ensure a win, but the truth is you can always see how it plays out and come back for more. You lose time but you get to begin to understand the process a little better.

This is how it plays out though. We finish the Tier 1 placements and deliver you the report with the understanding that the boosts are in progress. We don't make you wait around. You'll often (like in these cases above) see the initial bump from the Tier 1 links first, then the boosts are built and crawled naturally and the rest of the climb occurs at a steady velocity pace.

Some of this guy's pages saw the typical and temporary downward bounce because we hit it with the maximum power: DR70+ & Exact Match Anchor text. I saw the bounce and celebrated because I know what's to come. He's going to pop hard and fast to the top, like these are doing.

The graphs above represent what 1 and 2 Links + Boosts can do to a page. I say to slam it home by going harder on fewer pages, but we're always going to take your goals and precautions into account too.

Work with us, let us help you choose anchors if needed, we'll help you understand what you need to do sort out your page speed if it's a disaster, among other positive changes, and we'll get you the results you're looking for, without fail.

Face it, you're not getting diddly squat traffic at position 8 and 9. Even moving from position 2 to 1 is going to double your traffic to that page, if not much more since you'll start to get the "full dominance takeover" effect I've talked about on the forum.

Hit me up when you're ready for the full dominance takeover. We're here every day, 7 days a week.

I'm back with some more info to help provide extra insight into what we do and how we do it.

My partner and I appreciate the positive reception you've given us. We're meeting some straight up beasts that actively post and lurk on BuSo... I had no clue that we have so many absolute killers on here. You guys hide your successes well. Thank you for recognizing our work and its role in further entrenching your projects in greatness.

I want to share some more over-deliveries with you guys so you know, when there's a chance we can hook it up, you will get a bonus, no question.

Over-Delivery
OrderedDeliveredRD'sLinks
DR40+DR726.3K615K
DR40+DR682.7K31.5K
DR50+DR613.5K41.8K

Again, we can't promise this will be the case, but everyone tends to get a little something something when the niches are common. Imagine you were expecting two DR40 links and got two DR70 links instead. Them Links are on Fire!

-----
As always, let me share some recent results, and not just a few. I always recommend not spreading yourself thin and focusing your budget on one page, hitting it with at least two Links + Boosts, but everyone has their own agenda and path forward. We'll respect that and get the work done either way.

Each one of these results was from one DR40+ Link + Boost to each page from a private buyer in early June before we launched on BuSo. This is how it's done:



2,600 Volume / KD14
$2 Adwords CPC
1 Link + Boost
Position 30 to 3




1,000 Volume / KD15
$3 Adwords CPC
1 Link + Boost
Position 20 to 5




6,200 Volume / KD46
$3 Adwords CPC
1 Link + Boost
Position 44 to 4




800 Volume / KD26
$8 Adwords CPC
1 Link + Boost
Position 13 to 5




10,000 Volume / KD37
$3 Adwords CPC
1 Link + Boost
Position 47 to 2




1,300 Volume / KD29
$2 Adwords CPC
1 Link + Boost
Position 21 to 5




1,000 Volume / KD43
$3 Adwords CPC
1 Link + Boost
Position 12 to 3




2,000 Volume / KD39
$3 Adwords CPC
1 Link + Boost
Position 6 to 3

The bottom one I didn't start rank tracking until almost July by simple mistake. One thing to notice is the differences in how Google responded.

Understanding Rank Transition
Take the first graph. You get a tiny negative bounce to position #35 and then a slight jump which rides for a while then a large jump in rankings followed by four more small jumps until it reached #3. In this case, you'd might assume you saw the full impact of the Link + Boost over and over again, except it kept on going right to the top 3.

Compare that with the 2nd graph, where there was a huge negative bounce by about 20 positions down to #40, and then nothing... That's what I'm talking about in the FAQ above. Google will delay results, give opposite results, and any mixture to confuse you, demoralize you, and keep you off their trail. But with patience it popped up to #5.

Now look at the 3rd graph. Google didn't do any randomization here. You get your immediate jump of about 10 positions and then a slow and steady climb from #44 to #4. That's 40 spots over about 70 days. You see this same pattern in the 5th graph. I've never seen it take longer than 90 days, but I've seen a complete delay up to the 90th day, then an explosion.

The 6th graph are the ones that drive everyone crazy. You don't get the confirmation of a quick jump in rankings or even a negative bounce. They just delayed the results for a random amount of time, which ended up being about 45 days, then BOOM, up 15 positions to #5.

This is what happens when you impact a page with a relatively large amount of page rank than it's used to. Google says "HOL UP" and triggers the "rank transition" randomization. All good things come to those who wait, in these cases.

-----
My only regret is that we didn't make the minimum order 2 Links + Boosts per page. It's understandable that you'll want to test a new vendor first, or spread the love around because you have big desires for a lot of pages. But the waiting period can be as much as 3 months, and I want you to see a huge pop.

The guy above felt his Keyword Difficulties (KD) scores were low enough for just one Link + Boost, and yeah, we nailed it on the lower ones in the KD10 to KD20 range. We also nailed it for the KD35 to KD46 range too. They all get exponentially more difficult as you reach the top 10 and top 5 and then top 3. My recommendation is to not play around and at least rail on your page with two Links + Boosts, if not more, so you get the exponential traffic in the top 3 a lot sooner.

That's not a sales pitch. Look at the graphs in this thread, the ones that aren't for the astronomically crazy $400 CPC keywords. The ones that took 2 Links + Boosts or more slammed into the #3, #2 and #1 spots. You'll earn way more from driving one or two posts up to the top 3 than driving 10 posts up to the top 10, you know. That's my opinion, and I'm sticking to it.

Let us push your pages up the SERPS for you. Let us crush it for your clients. You'll have deliverables in the forms of solid placements you can show them, plus reports on their ranking changes, traffic improvements, and revenue increases. We do the work, you get the glory.

I hope those of you in the states are enjoying a relaxing Labor Day holiday.

As for me, I'll be chilling later tonight because I wanted to block off the morning and afternoon to make sure we're moving forward for all of you hustlers trusting us with improving your rankings. We always deliver whether rain, sleet, snow, or holiday. Speaking of delivering:

Over-Delivery
OrderedDeliveredRD'sLinks
DR40+DR627.10K10.8M
DR60+DR7719.6K2.62M
DR40+DR522.65K56.4K

Just like this is only a sampling of our over-deliveries, it's also only a sampling of some of the reports we're sending out. We can't always over-deliver, but when we can, we do!

DR77? That Link is on Fire!

-----
It's a busy day and I'm racing towards this evening, so let me keep this short.

I hopped into the rank tracker to add some more URLs and saw this gem:



3,000 Volume / KD77
$30 Adwords CPC
1 Link + Boost
Position 60 to 22

This one is the perfect example for some of the things I've been talking about. This link placement was secured on 8/14/20 on a pretty nice site. The page was immediately re-crawled and you can see by the next day Google already played a "let's trick them with a negative bounce" of about 10 positions, which then was reverted until about 8/25/20.

Eleven days later, we get the often expected sustained negative bounce. This is why in the FAQ I talk about the bounce and anxiety and knowing how this all works so many times. I don't want anyone freaking out when what they perceive as a bad sign is actually a good sign.

From 8/26/20 to 9/04/20, things were disheartening (that's the point! Google wants you to stop building links) but then KA-BOOM! The link baked and our Boost started kicking in as well, and today she's off to the races.

So why is this notable? Because it's a medium-value lead generation keyword with a respectable volume. The CPC isn't as high as you'd expect because there's a lot of tire kickers, but once they commit the lifetime customer value is off the charts with very low churn. People tend to stay subscribed for years, and even over a decade most of the time.

What else is notable is what I've talked about before and will mention again next just below. This is a KD77 keyword! Yes, we can move your rankings up with one DR40+ to DR70+ link. This one will improve further as the Boost soaks in. But why pussyfoot around? Driving this KD77 page to the top 3 is going to be stiff competition and require a lot more power than even one or two Links + Boosts.

Look at the wait and the turmoil Google puts you through. Now this site owner gets to wait again because they only used one Link + Boost. That's why I've been saying to focus on one page and start with at least 2 Links + Boosts. Get it done right the first time so you aren't disrupting your rankings over and over and waiting some random amount of time to see the effects (as much as 90 days waits sometimes). At least now they know we don't play around and we get results even with one Link + Boost.

Why do I keep stressing this point? Because I want to make more link sales? No, that's obviously not who I am. I'm giving genuine advice like I always do when I post on BuSo. Let me explain further.

-----
Understanding Exponential Competition
I've not really broken down fully why I suggest starting with at least 2 Links + Boosts per page if not more depending on the keyword difficulty. I mean, I've explained why (start earning sooner, stop disrupting your rankings over and over), but I've not gone into the mechanics behind the reasoning. Let's do that now.


I cooked up this Photoshop job just now to help illustrate why one single package isn't going to move you from position 60 to the top 3. It can get you fairly far though. This graph isn't a real measurement, I just drew it up to help explain visually what I'm saying.

Higher Positions = Higher Page Rank
The situation is that the higher the SERP position (moving towards #1), the exponentially more stiff the competition is, mainly in terms of page rank. Page Rank is what Links on Fire specializes in, but there's only so much juice to be passed per Link + Boost.

Position 10 probably requires 10x more page rank juice than position 20 does. Position 5 tends to require as much as 20x more than position 10 and 100x as much as position 20. By the time you're trying to push to the top 3 and #1 spot, it's even harder.

Higher Page Rank = Exponentially More Juice
It's also the case that moving from PR5 to PR6 requires probably 100x the juice it took to go from PR4 to PR5. Moving from PR6 to PR7 requires around 1000x more juice. Each step up requires way more page rank because it's all built on an exponential curve as pictured above. It's not linear, it's geometric.

The same goes for Ahrefs' DR ratings. A DR40+ is pretty good. That's a good link for sure. Compared to a DR60+ link, it's literally a few drops in a bucket of page rank juice. And if a DR60+ is an entire bucket of juice, then a DR80+ is an entire lake. You can guess what a DR90+ would be (an ocean of juice).

This is why our higher DR packages are a must for pushing up the front page for high value terms. It's why we'll get clients already sitting in the top 10, who'll cheap out on 5 DR40+ and not see much movement. It'll solidify your spot, but may not move you up. 5 DR40+ links still have less page rank in them combined than a DR70+! If we argue with you about how to use your budget, this is usually the reason.

How to Choose the Link + Boost Packages You Need
Please read the section above if you didn't. The point is two fold:
  1. The higher you plan to rank, the higher quality (DR metric) and the higher quantity (# of packages) you're going to need.
  2. The higher the quality (DR metric) you choose from us, the exponentially greater page rank we'll be sending your way (not to mention the Boosts we add on top).
Your first move is to make sure your on-page SEO is in good shape. Your second move is to make sure your page speed scores are good. Google will not rank a page extremely high if it doesn't provide a good user experience. We stress this often on BuSo. You will meet an invisible ceiling on your rankings if you have a mobile page speed score of 15 - 30 on PageSpeed Insights.

While you're working on that, you can check the keyword difficulty (KD) of the keyword you're targeting as well as the metrics of the pages in the top 10. If using Ahrefs, look at the top 10 pages' domain ratings (DR) and the page ratings (UR), and compare them to your own. Boosting DR is a must and we help with that, but what you want to be comparing is the UR to see how far off your specific page is from others. Google is a page level algorithm for the most part, though DR plays a pretty large role too.

How to Think About DR & Links on Fire
Our packages are set up between DR40+ and DR70+ (though we often deliver over DR80 at the upper end). This is a measure of how much page rank is flowing through the websites we'll land you links on.

The difference between a DR40+ and a DR70+ link is astronomical in terms of page rank. That doesn't always mean you should opt for a DR70+ either. Some lower KD keywords don't need a massive influx of juice (see the section below). Sometimes you'll be just fine with a lower amount of page rank and you simply need a higher quantity of better-than-average links to dial on your anchor text optimization.

But if you're already dialed in with anchor text and you're sitting in the top 10 or top of page 2 for a medium-to-high KD keyword and need to push on to the top 3 or even higher, then you should be considering higher DR rating packages from us. This is when the entire battle becomes about page rank.

How to Think About UR & Your Competition
If you're competing already in the top 20 or so, the DR rating of your site is probably comparable to those in the top 10 for the most part. You're now battling with your competitors on the UR metric, which is a measure of the quantity and quality of the links aimed at your (and their) specific page (and not the domain at large).

What you'll want to consider is how much of a gap between you and your competitors there is in the UR arena. The KD rating will tell you "you need X amount of links to compete". You can use this number, while referencing the number of links you and your competitors have, cross-referenced with the UR ratings.

This will give you an idea of not only the quantity of links you need still, but also the quality of them. We take any quantity you order from us and turn them into quality in terms of their UR ratings (this is what our Boosts do). We send a ton of page rank to the specific page you get a link from so it becomes far more juicy than simply relying on the page rank flowing through the domain at large. But the DR metric still matters too, because there's other metrics baked in there (in the eyes of Google) like authority and trust, which gets passed to you as well.

You can't exactly measure the specifics of what I'm talking about. You can only get an idea, and that's because Google's algorithm is a black box and Ahrefs' metrics are only their own estimations of page rank and aren't always perfectly accurate either. You could run this investigation using Majestic's TF and CF too.

Anyways, if you have a game plan and tell us what you want, we'll respect that and make it happen (we'll push back against you if we think you're doing something off-the-mark though. We want you to win).

If you're unsure, we're always happy to help you understand what we think you need too. But learning how to interpret the available data will help you in a lot of ways outside of your work with Links on Fire. I hope this explanation helps you achieve your goals, and we're always here to lend a helping hand.

Also wanted to write a short review here, since @Ryuzaki went above and beyond in delivering the service.
  • After submitting the request, Ryu reviewed my page and link profile, confirmed that an exact-match is the way to go in this case
  • Overdelivered – I got a DR62 link on a hyper-relevant article with a natural-looking exact-match anchor text
  • Ryuzaki manually reviewed my site – confirmed that pagespeed was OK – and suggested an easy tweak that fixed a minor lazy-loading issue that I had
  • Turnaround time was less than 2 weeks
  • The 5-tier juicing is still in progress
Everything was transparent, fast, and professional. Payment via PayPal invoice. The traffic to the page has been stable, I will report back if there are any big changes there. I got this link as an insurance against potential competitors moving in, the page was doing OK already.

I have no experience with tiered links myself, but if I had to trust someone with it, it would be Ryuzaki simply based on how clean and whitehat he is with his whole approach these days.

Thank you, @Poplanu, for taking the time out to share your experience. We appreciate it!

My partner just shared some straight FIRE with me so I wanted to pop it up in here so you guys can see that we're doing the big boy shit in real time.

This ain't a game. How much cash do you think each of these leads are worth when they close? I can tell you what people are paying per click (not even per lead, let alone a converted lead)...



1700 Volume / KD 47
$185 Adwords CPC
8 Links + Boosts
Position 18 to 1

Baby needs a new pair of shoes... gift wrapped with a bow and presented to her atop her new yacht!

My posts in this thread have been trying to stress several things that this graph beautifully illustrates. And I'll have more to come, but let's focus on just this one.

1) We Never Know How Fast Google Will React
For bigger orders, we try to do a natural drip so we don't slam a page too fast or hard. It's all about the page rank. We always use natural anchor texts for these types of orders too. The anchor text profiles tend to be dialed in already, so all it needs is our specialty: massive amounts of page rank.

In this case, the dripping worked just fine and Google didn't take long to react. This is not typical. Nothing is typical. Everything is random. But we tend to find with a more careful drip we can minimize any negative bouncing if Google recrawls the links in succession. And that's important when the stakes are high like this.

2) The Page Rank is Massive
Despite our best efforts, we can't tell Google to take its time crawling our boosts. And with 8 Boosts coming in at once... well, as you can see, there was a negative bounce of 6 positions. Thankfully it was short lived. You won't always see this happen, but expect it. I'm not kidding about the page rank flow.

3) This Guy Didn't Pussyfoot Around
I keep saying to not play around and slam it home. This guy took our advice. Perhaps he over-did it, but why take the chance? He hit #1 before the final tier of our boosts were completed and crawled.

What he knows now is that he's going to hold that position for quite some time. And he knows that if he needs a couple of maintenance links after an update or two, he knows where to get them. We often drip out Links + Boosts on subscription to maintain these life or death rankings, so if that's something you're interested in, let us know.

4) He Didn't Spread Himself Thin
The final piece to the puzzle was that he fought the urge to do what many do, despite me begging them not to... he didn't give us 8 URLs to use across 8 Links + Boosts.

He hammered a winner home, up 17 positions right to #1. That's basically zero traffic to probably 2000+ clicks a month if you count the long-tails he'll be getting. You know what he was paying PER CLICK before? $185 per freaking click. I don't care who you are, nobody wants to bid to stay at the top of the SERPs at that price.

Not when Links on Fire exists...

When I first ordered @Ryuzaki 's links, I did it for all the rational reasons:
  • He's a trustworthy, helpful forum member.
  • The price seemed fair, especially for what it offered.
  • The results displayed in the graphs are mouth-watering.
Here's the first thing I didn't know - and only found out AFTER reaching him out.

If you have any appreciation for what he shares on the forums, you know he's thorough, detailed, focused. Dude's basically putting the same energy towards YOUR site. He analyzed my on-page SEO, anchor ratio, pagespeed, everything.

And that was before money exchanged hands!

I ordered two links to two different pages - I'm THAT guy he warns against throughout the sales thread. They've been hovering between 2nd-4th for the past few months with a bunch of so-so links.

I paid my invoice on Tuesday 12:35 PM Eastern. He PMed me at 6:18 PM Thursday, just under 30 hours later, to say that the links were already placed. (He did mention the fast TAT was atypical and he was surprised himself.) He also gave me a URL with a PDF report.

And here's the second thing I found out AFTER ordering the links.

He had a discussion with his partner, the unnamed link geek (I'm gonna call him Eraldo from now on), about the best link placement and the best anchor text. He went on in detail on how Eraldo analyzed my site and even my competition.

My order was for a couple of Molotovs from DR40+ sites. The first link has DR 56; the second, DR 50. The boost is still in progress - 2 to 3 weeks according to his estimates. And then, Google will do its thing.

The links themselves were an $800 value for my $600 investment. (That 33% extra is the cost of the corresponding higher link tier.) But what about their experience and the time they invested into my site? I can't price that. I don't know how much they charge or if they even work as consultants.

tl;dr

In short, Ryuzaki and Eraldo treated my site as if it were their own. THAT's a rare trait. And THAT's what made me a return customer for these links and whatever else Ryusaki decides to sell.

Thank you, @DD1, for taking the time to share your experiences. DD1 is doing something very clever on his site. I don't think I made mention of it to him, but I noticed! He's a real creative thinker and solved a huge problem many of us run into.

Let me tell you guys about some recent over-deliveries! We always strive to give more than we promise when we can.

Over-Delivery
OrderedDeliveredRD'sLinks
DR40+DR563.75K1.40M
DR40+DR6713.5K5.05M
DR40+DR522.65K56.4K
DR50+DR677.70K1.22M
DR50+DR7719.8K2.60M
DR40+DR501.95K15.9K

Please don't expect it, because it's absolutely not every time, but hopefully we can surprise you with something much juicer than you expect!

If I asked for a DR50+ link and ended up with a DR77, I'd jump up out of my chair and scream "that LINKS ON FIRE!" (and then be embarassed that my dog witnessed such cringe).

-----
Selling Yourself Short

So I've been on a mission to explain what NOT to do (which is mainly selling yourself short by spreading yourself too thin). Let me give you a couple examples that are great results but even when the links are, in fact, on fire, they can't do miracles:



2300 Volume / KD 54
$120 Adwords CPC
3 Links + Boosts
Position 17 to 9

This is a newer big boy client in a big boy niche (personal injury, you can figure out the rest). With three of our DR70+ Links + Boosts, we shot him up from the bottom of page 2 to the bottom of page 1.

Like I've been saying, the competition gets very stiff on the front page, and even more so once you hit the top 5 and then top 3. It took some real power just to front page him. We argued with him about going for a bigger impact up front but he wanted to (understandably) test the waters. This isn't cheap SEO, by any means, but it's effective. We're already running the next campaign, of course, because the results can't be ignored.

The first go took about 1 month from the time the order was placed to seeing the benefit. That's pretty freaking fast on Google's end. Sometimes it can take up to 3 months. So he got lucky, because in an alternative universe he'll have been sitting on his hands for 90 days, seeing the big improvement, and then waiting another 90 days to drive it all the way home. That's half a year of missed revenue!



1600 Volume / KD 19
$1 Adwords CPC
1 Links + Boosts
Position 55 to 10

This one isn't a huge deal for the client, but this one shows... you hit the front page and the game gets a lot harder. It's kind of a tough keyword, nothing we couldn't finish off. But one DR40+ Link + Boost just wasn't going to finish it off. Our boosts are pretty damn good, but they don't walk on water.

This shows you that you'll be facepalming yourself for undershooting. This 1600 volume keyword is really much higher once you start taking down all of the long-tails by ranking at the top.

With their monetization, it'd be about $50 a day in clean revenue. In no other business can you see the ROI we see in SEO. Just another reason not to mess around with one link + boost at a time. If you can run a campaign and break even in a month or so and then hang onto that ranking for a year or more, you'd be insane to let fear or whatever stop you from hands-free profit for that long.

-----​

Doing It Right!

You have to let us break you through these barriers where the competition takes a big leap up in page rank. That's typically right at spot 10, with a sliding scale up to spot 5 where there's another big leap. Sometimes spot 3 is a doozy too.

At the end of the day, it all boils down to keyword selection. Pull up your pages that could really bring home the bacon and run the numbers. Figure out how much quantity and quality of links + boosts you figure you'll need (I explained how in a post above). Crunch the numbers and see where the break even point is. Let the data guide you.

If it makes sense, revisit your on-page SEO and make sure you've got that dialed in perfectly. Make sure your page speed is in acceptable shape. Make sure your existing anchor text profile isn't absurd (we'll help bring you down from the cliff or push you right up to the perfection-line).

Once all that is a "go," there's nothing left you need but link power and page rank, and that's our specialty.

Don't believe me? Let me show you again:



300 Volume / KD 38
$25 Adwords CPC
4 Links + Boosts

Position 4 to 1

This page was already in the pocket, but he knew his competitors in spots 3, 2, and 1 were eating his dinner. He was sitting in spot 4, saying "please, mister competitor, might I have but one delectable morsel of a crumb from your plate, kind sir? I don't need much, just enough to sustain me until tomorrow..."

You can see the initial link placements kick in and then we finish off the boosts and "wham, bam, thank you ma'am", she's #1.

Who do you think is getting the last laugh now!? You can take that to the bank.

Just wanted to drop a quick shout-out to Ryu. One of our main keywords was sitting at #5, with 3 "Best of" sites in the top 3 and one of our competitors right in front of us at #4. Our main goal was to regain the #4 spot, since the Listicle/directory sites are tough to pass. We ordered a DR60+, but received an unexpected overdelivery, and the article was super relevant. It has been about 2 weeks since it went live, and we are currently sitting at #3. These links are the real deal, and Ryu's customer service is extraordinary as well.

Thank you, @DD1, for taking the time to share your experiences. DD1 is doing something very clever on his site. I don't think I made mention of it to him, but I noticed! He's a real creative thinker and solved a huge problem many of us run into.

This is what I meant when I posted my review. He took the time to look at the site and understand it. His trained eyes are helping me improve - other than the actual backlinking service. @Ryuzaki truly goes above and beyond.

Ryuzaki didn't even ask me to leave a review but I am because his customer service alone is worth the $.

Yes, the links are great however I'm highlighting his customer service and lessons you can receive from Ryuzaki that truly makes his service impeccable.

I even offered him $300/hr for consulting me and he respectfully refused yet he still expended his time to chat w/ me via my site.

As DD1 mentioned, when you utilize Ryuzaki's service, he will take the time to analyze your site and provide suggestions based on his expertise and experience to yield you with the best results.

Thanks for your generosity.

Thank you, @CashCowAdv, for allocating some of your time and energy on sharing your experiences with us. I appreciate it and I'm sure others do too.

Today I'd like to share with you a few more recent ranking graphs. They show more various types of reactions Google can have, and I'd like to explain why each one occurred:

The Best Case Scenario (You Love to See It)



500 Volume / KD 31
$20 Adwords CPC
2 Links + Boosts

Position 4 to 2
This is how you want it to play out. This is a casino keyword. The content was good and optimized, the anchor text ratio was balanced, and all it needed was some juice. It already had plenty of solid backlinks so, while the juice we were about to send in is massive, it wasn't relatively massive compared to what already existed.

We used two phrase match anchors (they contain the target query in some fashion, not necessarily in an exact match fashion), which we know lowers the chance of a disruption to the existing rankings. That mattered here because at #4 this page was already "ranking and banking". It was our job to improve both without stirring the pot.

And we nailed it. It's a shame the client only ordered 2 Links + Boosts. We over-delivered both from DR50+ to a DR60+ and a DR70+, but it still wasn't enough. Like I say, don't pussyfoot around! We can only do so much when we aren't set loose like the dogs of war we are.

The thing with casino programs is, like most other SERPs, the higher up you rank, the higher quality of traffic you get (and more of it). This guy is probably raking in whales as we speak. I know that's most likely the case because we've been set loose on other pages now. Like gambling, Links on Fire can become an addiction!

Too Many Exact Match Anchors!



400 Volume / KD 42
$80 Adwords CPC
6 Links + Boosts

Position 4 to 1
You'll notice I labeled this as going from position 4 to 1 though it dropped back to #4 again. It'll hit #1, but this is what happens when you go aggressive (and maybe shouldn't). This is a "big boy" keyword, the kind that alters the trajectory of a big boy business.

You don't become a big boy by not being aggressive (don't pussyfoot around, dammit!) but this guy perhaps needs to rein it in a little bit. He wanted all exact match anchors (and could absorb it) and while we talked him back off the cliff to a degree, he insisted we move forward with 4 exact match anchors.

As you can see, the page bounced out of the top 20 for a few days, showed it's hand at #1, bounced out again, and then is going to ride around at the #4 - #5 spot for a while. Pretty soon it's going to slam back to #1 and stay.

But when we're talking about 6 DR70+ Links + Boosts with 4 exact match anchors, you can disrupt your current rankings. We do and will warn you against it, but if you insist on what you want despite our pushback, we'll say "okay, you're the boss here." You'll still get the reward but you may pay a short, temporary price for it.

What we won't do is let you do anything that will permanently harm your page. We have had to flat out say "no, we won't do this to you, even though you want it." The point is, we're on your side, even when it looks like tough love.

Another Beauty That Went Smoothly



400 Volume / KD 12
$1 Adwords CPC
1 Link + Boost

Position 9 to 2
There's nothing particularly special about this one except the little ups and downs throughout. It's like several microcosms of what I've talked about with Google reacting to more juice coming in as they naturally crawl the Boost and discover the main link placement.

I like these because they're examples of "getting out of your own way". The page was ranking #9 with just on-page, the power of the domain, and time. It's not a very competitive keyword either. But it hit it's maximum and there was no point in not driving it home and scooping up far more than 400 in search volume (all the related long-tails!).

A single DR40+ Link + Boost with a phrase match anchor and bada-bing bada-boom. Nice and clean, didn't trigger Google's Rank Transition nonsense. Just a nice, clean climb as the main link placement was crawled and then the boosts baked in. The client didn't overthink it, trusted us on the anchor usage, and we got it done fast. Simple as that.

- SERVICE UPDATE NOTICE -
We no longer accept anchor text requests

The long story short is that this method was cooked up in the lab in a way to not need to use specific anchor texts. It was designed to not need it, and this is made possible through the boosts.

The first added benefit to this is that we can secure better link placements without requesting specific anchor texts. When we leave the options open, we're much better able to over-deliver for you, since at least 50% of the webmasters we work with don't allow "obvious" anchor texts.

This doesn't mean we don't supply extra content to help drive home relevancy surrounding your link in the content. We do. It means that, while relevant, we're going back to keeping the anchors 100% natural.

The second added benefit is when you don't use exact-match or overly-specific anchor texts, you're far less likely to see the annoying reactions from Google like the temporary negative bounces, etc. The reason that happens is mainly due to the big influx of page rank juice, but it can really get tipped over the edge if the anchors are too "obvious". It can still happen, of course, but it will be less likely.

We never offered the ability to suggest anchor texts before launching on BuSo, and despite my partner's protestations, I argued for it because I know you guys are far more analytical and precise than the average joe and would probably want the choice. But it's truly for the best that we remove that option. I take the blame for needing to change this policy that should have never been put in place.

The third added benefit is that we can increase our turn-around-times. Our inventory, for most of you, will become larger, though you won't notice that. That means if a webmaster doesn't respond as fast as we'd like, we just hit up another, and the choices of who to reach out to will be expanded as well, especially in the upward direction as far as metrics go.

All you need to provide us is the URL and the keywords you're focused on ranking for, and we'll take care of the rest, including a full anchor text profile analysis. Because, while we'll keep it natural, we'll also keep it optimal.

-----

TL;DR Version:
We no longer accept anchor text requests, and will only use natural anchors, because:
  • It's not needed - we designed the method to not need it thanks to how the boosts work.​
  • We can get you better placements and over-deliver more often this way.​
  • You're less likely to see a temporary negative bounce or delayed reaction from Google.​
  • We can increase our turn-around-times since this is a significant bottleneck in the process.​
If you're trying to refine your anchor text ratios and profile, do that with other links. Our system was built to not need to worry about that, at all, and still be fully effective.

Thank you all for the wonderful response we've had thus far, and for trusting us with your businesses' needs. We take extra care every time, and we agree that there's more to gain by keeping it natural. We'll do the right thing every time, even when it requires me to admit that I was wrong to argue against my partner for something we already knew wasn't needed.

Hello, my fellow Crushers of Competitor's Souls. I hope everyone is well, being productive, and seeing positive results like those below!

Service Related Announcement
Thank you guys for the mad rush you've put us in. The response in the last half of this month was so monumental that we've had to hire more help, optimize our operating procedures, and roll out more infrastructure.

Though in the opening post I stated to allow 30 days for the turn-around-time, we've been able to deliver the initial link placements in under a 7 days prior to you all slamming us with work. While we will absolutely come in under 30 days, a more realistic expectation right now is around 14 days instead of 7. Thanks for understanding, and thank you for placing your trust and confidentiality in us.

Recent Results
I grabbed the first few results I saw out of the rank tracker just now. Two are an absolute victory for one page, and the third one is also a victory, but it's also another example of what happens when you test the waters instead of diving in and getting the job done completely.




8100 volume / KD 18
$3.00 Adwords CPC
8 Links + Boosts
Position 15 to 2 (so far!)




1700 volume / KD 17
$2.50 Adwords CPC
8 Links + Boosts
Position 10 to 2 (so far!)

These results are so recent that we haven't even delivered a report yet. In fact, we haven't even finished building out the main link placements yet! That's why I'm saying that Position 2 isn't the end of this story. Both of these keywords (and tons more) are going to hit #1 once we wrap up the initial placements and start the boosts.

Out of respect for this webmaster there's one thing I'll say and one thing I won't say. He didn't play around. The 8 Links + Boosts range from DR40+ all the way up to DR70+. He knew what he was aiming at, knew to go in for the kill, and will get the rewards. The part I won't say is the niche and the monetization method, but lets just say that this is going to be seriously ROI positive, especially at that volume. Don't let the CPC fool you. The leads are worth 50x that, they just don't close from a little Adwords ad. They have to be caressed and coddled down through the funnel.




1500 volume / KD 15
$2.00 Adwords CPC
1 Link + Boost
Position 28 to 7

This webmaster tested the waters with one DR40+ Link & Boost. I told him that I was fairly certain the Keyword Difficulty (KD) metric on this one wasn't accurate and it was tougher than it looked, and to save time and drive it home all the way. He wanted to play it safe on his side and make sure we could deliver first, which is fine and understandable if you haven't worked with me before.

We got the initial link placement done almost immediately and the rankings started dancing around (exact match anchor's can cause that even with one link). It started to settle around Position 24 it seems and would have climbed more after a delay, but we also managed to finish off the Boost pretty soon after.

And you can see how that went. Straight to #10 and then a delay and now it's climbing even higher to #7 (and will likely keep going a bit). I doubt it'll surpass #5 due to the true KD with only 1 Link + Boost. The competition gets exponentially more stiff the higher you go!

This graph shows two things:

1) - Some people have asked how much of the ranking success we attribute to the Boosts. This should give you an idea. We all know what standard link building can achieve, even with our placements that are well above average. The links are on fire without the Boosts, but it's the Boosts that are the proprietary combustible propellant. We're basically the SpaceX of Link Building, if I can get cocky for a second.

Offline Link Calculations Made Live
I broke this into another section to draw attention to it. This is something everyone needs to understand, whether or not they take advantage of it with Links on Fire. Here's the 2nd thing about the graph above, and then I show another example of it:

2) - Our method is a sure fire win, but there's rarely immediate gratification. There's some reaction by Google to the initial link, then a big jump from the boosts, which ultimately gets the job done if you let us unleash the hounds of war... but even then, Google is collecting data and crunching it offline. And typically once every few months they merge that offline data into the online algorithm.

That's what you're seeing around 9/25/20. They didn't have a lot of time to gather data from the Boost, but they got enough to cause a third climb in the rankings during this most recent update around that time.

Here's another example of that same thing occurring. Remember on this post above where I shared a test on one of my own projects? It's 14,900 volume / KD 42 keyword with 1 Link + Boost that moved it from Position 67 to 37 as the only backlink.

Well, after around 3 months (every 3 months or so!), Google did whatever they do when they crunch offline link data and poured it back into the algo around 9/25/20. Here's what happened:




So this post with no other backlinks gets a DR40+ Molotov Cocktail Link + Boost and goes from 67 to 37. It sticks in that position through a few minor updates, even climbing up some at one point before settling back down to 37. Then BAM the offline link data comes in and it shoots right to #13.

That's #67 to #13 with one DR40+ Link & Boost over the course of about 3.5 months.

This process is very typical, not just of Links on Fire, but of all link building. What's not typical is the ferociousness of the jump.

The reason most "professionals" don't know about this aspect of SEO and you never see them talking about it is because they never see this kind of jump. They flat out don't know how and can't get their hands on this much page rank in one cycle of Google's offline calculations.

That's why Links on Fire is the gift that keeps on giving.

#StayTuned as I out more secrets from the cutting-edge of the SEO world.
I look forward to seeing this in the guru blogs in the coming weeks!

I return for another episode of "Tell you one thing about this service and tell you one advanced thing about SEO." But first a quick update.

Open Orders Updates
First and foremost, for anyone eager for their report, I shot a handful out over the weekend. There's also four on deck that are lacking just one single link placement each that we should have done any day now.

Everyone is well within the turn-around time. As always, we're coming in hot with over-deliveries ahead of schedule. To the gentlemen with the big bulk orders, we're moving so fast that it's looking like we'll even wrap these up ahead of schedule!

-------​

Recent Big Boy Results
We've spent quite a few bumps now talking about "regular sized" and medium keywords, in both volume, competition, and CPC value. Let's get back to the kind of SERPs that alter the trajectories of people's lives, big time and fast.



1750 volume / KD 46
$300 Adwords CPC
3 Links + Boosts
Position 9 to 1

The above illustrates two things: 1) We can and will crush the big boy keywords, and 2) You can see exact match negative bounce in action. Thankfully at position 9 this guy wasn't getting all that much business from this page anyways, because his insistence on going aggressive did exactly what we've been warning about in this thread.

That's a 30 position drop you see, then a drop out of the top 50, to peek in where it "should" be once Google is done randomizing everything, another drop out of the top 50 to freak you out and get you to expose yourself, and then it settles in and lands right where it belongs: #1.

This is why we're asking you to let us handle the anchor texts from here out. Phrase match anchors reduce the risk of that type of bounce drastically, but we'll still go more aggressive if we think the risk is low, you can absorb it, or you're not ranking high enough that a potential bounce will disrupt your income temporarily.

At $300 per ad click with this much volume, this guy is now closing leads worth 100x that much... all without coughing up that painful CPC... all off of 3 Nuclear Option packages. Your results will vary, but that's how this one shook out.

Lesson learned: This isn't a game. It's not a hobby. It's a warzone and it's a zero sum game. Everyone else has shell shock, wondering what the hell just happened. Cry 'Havoc!,' and let slip the dogs of war.

-------
How to Gauge a Site's True Power
There's been some confusion in this entire industry for far too long. It's been 2 decades for me, and I've yet to see someone talk about this. It's not some crazy secret, but it is hidden from the masses because it requires a wee bit of deeper thought, which seems to be absent as we hustle and bustle around being busy. No doubt it'll appear on some industry guru blogs soon, though.

Ask yourself as you read this, which of these sites is going to make a larger impact on your own rankings when you receive a dofollow contextual link from it:

Referring DomainsRanking KeywordsOrganic Traffic
Site A3.4 K123 K325 K
Site B3.4 K1.4 M20 K

It's not a trick question at all. The problem is that everyone is so focused on SEO qua SEO that they can't see the forest from the trees. When you're doing SEO in the role of an SEO, everything starts to look like hammer. And the hammer equals traffic, in this case.

In this example, Site A and Site B have the exact same amount of referring domains, but different ones. They're both DR52. They're both in the same niche with the same amount of pages published.

The only thing that differs is on-page SEO. Site A is laser-focusing on ranking very specific and tight keywords that match the intent they need. They don't get a lot of extra long-tails or variants due to how they're doing the on-page, but it's working. They get a whopping 325,000 visits a month!

Site B, on the other hand, doesn't give a diddly squat about on-page SEO. They're posting journalistic efforts that cover a topic in breadth and depth, which is how they've collected their backlinks. They're high quality. So how come they only get 20,000 organic visits? Because of the lack of on-page SEO.

There's two things people don't seem to realize because they have myopic SEO tunnel vision. Site B actually gets more traffic than Site A... way more. You just don't see it in the organic traffic charts because it's all coming from social media and email newsletters and referrers on forums, etc.

The other thing to realize is the difference in the number of ranking keywords. Site A could be ranking #1 for every single one of those keywords. I'm still taking the link from Site B instead. Why?

Because if a site can rank for that many keywords without on-page SEO... then that's a juicy site. All of those 1.4 million keywords could be on page 2 for all we know, all without an ounce of on-page work done. And it's not just the juice... There are other factors at place like trust, authority, user engagement metrics, etc. Site B is an entire tier of power beyond Site A in my opinion, if not several tiers, if it's outranking countless other sites without on-page.

On the surface you may think they're equal in terms of juice, and then think Site A is better because it gets more traffic from Google. Organic traffic is a consequence of on-page and being a good site with quality content. But Google is honoring Site B with 10x the SERP real estate and begging them to do some on-page because everything else is so on point. Site B is the clear winner.

Don't get me wrong. It's not always the case that more keywords ranking means better results. This is simply an example of how you have to put on your thinking cap and get out of the box "conventional SEO wisdom" puts you in. The gurus are not there to help you, and too many people regurgitate what they say.

One final example to drive home the point... I mentioned this site before in a post above:
  • DR80
  • 53.3K RD's
  • 14M backlinks
  • Organic Traffic: 10.2K
  • Social Traffic: Millions
  • Type-in Traffic: Thousands
I'll take that link all day, but so many people think the sites a failure because there's only 10.2K organic traffic. Think again!

That's one thing about the service,
and one thing about SEO...
See ya next time, or you can...

Hello, everyone. We've been so busy it seems like eons have gone by since I've had a chance to post in this thread. It's only been 8 days, but a lot has happened in that time. Lots of reports have been going out, and the bulk orders are about to go out, too.

Before I jump into the meat of this post, let me update you on some new policies:

- SERVICE UPDATE NOTICE -

We no longer take foreign TLD or language requests

We're no longer taking requests to provide links from foreign TLD's or in foreign languages. We only speak English ourselves, though some of our team do speak Spanish. My partner and I are the final set of eyeballs when it comes to quality assurance and we simply can't speak other languages well enough. It also severely limits the availability in our inventory. All links will come from English language sites with English anchors. There's some wiggle room on the anchors so please do ask.

-------​

I know you guys are going to be as excited as I was at the over-deliveries we were able to pull off for you. There's so many I can't even start to list them all, but I'll show you a decent chunk:

Over-Deliveries

DR40+DR513.13K45.2K
DR40+DR654.76K32.3K
DR40+DR622.17K146K

I'll stop there. Three's too many. I'll share more next time.

Expecting a couple ~DR40's and getting a DR65 and DR62... We always go above and beyond every chance we get because we're invested in your success and satisfaction. We take it personally.

Testimonials

We stay too busy to play games with drama but if you're successful, it comes your way regardless. I've gotten a few emails about various "competitors", on this platform and off, who's entire marketing campaigns have become about us. Here's a clip of the funniest one:

"Use one of their magic incantations/spells/boosts or whatever."
Think about that for a second. Not only are they so flustered that they're telling you to use our Links + Boosts, but they're calling them magic.

Arthur C. Clarke, the guy that invented the concept of geostationary satellites and geostationary orbits, said it best:

"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."
Could you even get a better testimonial than that?

Example of One Link + Boost​

Here's an example that I shared before from a guy that chose to use one single DR40+ Link + Boost for a money page. I shared it before the boost came in, and it's perfectly representative of what our Boosts do, so I wanted to update it:



1500 volume / KD 15
$2.00 Adwords CPC
1 Link + Boost
Position 28 to 5

Previously, our DR40+ link (I think we over-delivered to DR50+) jumped this guy up from position 28 to around ~9, where the competition gets exponentially more stiff. Not bad, right? With a careful anchor text selection, he went from not even on the playing field to the front page.

Well, as we've been saying, it takes time for our Boosts to be built and kick in. This single boost caused a small bounce and then jumped him up another 4 to 5 positions, right smack dab to Position 5. From zero revenue to "I think I better order again, this time with 3 Links + Boosts". We'll finish this one off, for sure.

I've been saying that we estimate the Boosts to account for around 70% of the results. That's what you're seeing here. The move from position 10 to position 5 is a LOT harder than 28 to 10. Probably 20x as hard, but one Boost got it done.

Nobody else on this planet in the past, present, or future can or will offer this kind of magic:
  • No, we're not cheap, but our pricing is fair and based on expenses and time, not hype.​
  • No, we're not slashing our prices or offering the same thing as others at inflated prices.​
  • Yes, we bring real results with us to the table.​
Don't let anyone lead you to believe that every campaign goes swimmingly well, jumping a dozen or more spots straight to the #1 slot, and especially not over night. It doesn't work that way. Never has, never will. Not for keywords with actual competition.

Take the Big Boy Ranks All the Way!​

Our results are so real, with real ranking graphs, that we're not afraid to show you realistic results. I'm as sick of seeing fake ranking graphs out there as you are. Fake case studies. Fake income charts. Seems like everything is fake these days.

So as another show of good faith, here are more times when we didn't slam straight to #1.

This is a point I keep making, because I want you to take it seriously. These Links + Boosts can take you to the top 3 and the #1 spot. But the truth is we aren't "magic". We're more akin to engineers than wizards. Our only limitation is when you don't set loose the dogs of war (you test the waters).

Don't mind my partner's mouse cursor in the screen shots... he's an SEO titan but he's still "momma's special little boy"... :D



1200 volume / KD 42
$90 Adwords CPC
1 Link + Boost
Position 29 to 16

This was a single DR70+ Link + Boost. In fact, the Boost has yet to kick in (we're just finalizing it). But I can tell you already that this guy undershot severely. I suspect this keyword is much more stiff than a KD 42. That's okay because he's now set us loose to build what we think is necessary and send him the bill. He's going to top 3 at least.

At a $90 Adwords CPC, which he's actually been paying, he's about to not only save a fortune but he's going to be getting those leads for "Free Ninety Nine."



2300 volume / KD 46
$180 Adwords CPC
2 Links + Boosts
Position 14 to 6

Here's another undershot. I know what this person was thinking... "I can get away with fewer links if I use exact match anchors." I wish that was the case. This illustrates why we moved to phrase match anchors only. You can see the big bounce where Google showed its cards and then decided to try to confuse us instead by dropping the page out of the top 50 for 3 days.

He did manage to run up to about the top 5 but that's where the next wall of difficulty is. We're already on the job with a bigger budget, because why mess around paying $180 per click when we can push you up right below the adds organically?



1400 volume / KD 50
$115 Adwords CPC
2 Links + Boosts
Position 41 to 14

This was another "undershot" as we've taken to calling them, but one that went smoothly. It went "smoothly" because we used phrase match anchors. You can see the first big reaction, then a smaller climb from the initial link placements around October the 1st, and it would have gone a little further but we banged out the Boosts rather quickly, which is the big jump at the end.

This keyword is supremely challenging. I consider it a victory already, but of course you need to hit the front page at least to start seeing traffic. At $115 Adwords CPC, this service provider has also re-engaged us to finish the job, this time without testing the waters.

^ That's the True Reality in this Game​

It's not all rainbows and cupcakes out here. This is a battlefield and we have the munitions required to secure a total victory. But at the same time, we only unleash as much power as you allow us to unleash.

I'm not afraid to show you graphs like those above. Not every campaign pops from position 15 straight to #1 (if you expect that, you're crazy, and if you see that and believe it, I've got a bridge to sell you).

But at the same time, I can't just leave you like that. We all want to see people winning when the stakes are high. So I'll leave you with this:



800 volume / KD 42
$50 Adwords CPC
5 Links + Boosts
Position 3 to 1

This guy already knew what was at stake because he was already reaping the benefits. But when Position #1 gets 40% of the clicks, he knew he had to have it.

We tend to see the most success on most keywords when we're able to build 5 to 7 Links + Boosts. The main reason is... each freaking link gets a Boost and that's a LOT of page rank.

You'll see we also minimized the bouncing by using phrase match anchor texts, which is what we do by default now. It's as effective, keeps you safe from over-optimization, and keeps your current money-making ranks from bouncing too much.

How the Ordering Process Works​

Finally, you may be wondering exactly how the ordering process plays out. It's simple:
  1. You email me or send me a private conversation here on BuSo.
  2. You either know exactly what you want or I can help you decide what's the best course of action.
  3. You give me your URLs, the keywords you're aiming at, and your email address.
  4. I send you an invoice and get you into the workflow.
  5. Typically within 7 days to 20 days, we land you the initial link placements on relevant posts on powerful sites using phrase match anchor texts.
  6. I send you a fancy PDF report for these initial link placements so you aren't waiting around while we build the Boosts.
  7. You start seeing some ranking movements from these placements alone.
  8. In the meantime, we're building the Boosts through the powerful sites that act as the vehicle to carry this massive amount of page rank safely to your page.
  9. Within 2-3 weeks, the Boosts are finished and Google reacts very soon after.
  10. You get a big improvement in your ranks, traffic, and revenue.
That's the timeline. The process is simple and it requires very little effort from you. We do all the work, you get all the glory (and income).
