Q: What is tiered link building?

+13 votes
Hi. I've heard a lot about tiered link building. What do you think of this strategy? Is it black hat or grey hat? Is it effective in 2013? Can I rank my site with it easily? How many tiers should I create? Thanks, Nikole

There are Google updates happening on a monthly (if not a weekly) basis in 2013. In order to rank your site, you must be very smart. One of the ways to create links which will help you rank faster is tiered link building. There are many articles on the subject, but one of the most effective ways to learn are videos.
