It’s common knowledge that Web 2.0 Backlinks are an essential part of any (successful) Private Blog Network, right?

Web 2.0 Backlinks are not only FREE, but they are super useful when trying to boost your PBN’s authority and link juice. Despite all this goodness, it’s still very hard to find the right information on how to setup a successful Web 2.0 PBN link farm.

Which is why in today’s post we will learn the most effective, and an undeniably easiest way to setup a web 2.0 private blog network…


I will also provide you with latest Web 2.0 List that is best for your website.

About Web 2.0 Mini-Sites:

I had built this Web 2.0 last year for a small project; it ranked pretty well for my desired keyword..

..I have since taken down the project as I am rebuilding the platform on nodejs..


I had achieved #3 for my desired keyword at the time only by building quality Web 2.0

The Web 2.0 Secret Sauce and Recipe:


That’s right! I figured that would be your next question!

To be honest, there is no secret sauce or magical candy..correct configuration and you have just built yourself a successful Web 2.0 blog.

What’s the right configuration?

Glad you asked!

Lately, I have been experimenting a lot with Web 2.0 and following checklist works the best for me:

  • Setup a minimum of 10 blog post and a maximum of 20 posts per Web 2.0 during a time frame of 3-4 months.
  • Build each Web 2.0 blog very slowly, grow it and make it look like a real blog.
  • Write a unique article; each article consisting of 500-1000 words.
  • Target LSI and Long Tail Keywords; you might naturally rank for several terms..the natural traffic would give your blog a higher authority and make your blog look natural.
  • Setup necessary social media profiles
  • Upload a Video on YouTube…you can make a quick video using Animoto (I started adding my videos on my Web 2.0 blogs earlier this year).

Case Study & Live Example of Web 2.0 coming soon..

Using Web 2.0 Blogs as Tier 1 (Buffer Sites) & Tier 2

You can use Web 2.0 Blog Network in two possible way:

1) Use it as Tier 1 (Buffer Sites)

Buffer Sites?

Here is the definition:

A buffer site acts as a median between your money site and private blog network

Why do we need this?

If your linking building strategy involves links from other higher authority blog network (owned by someone else), it’s advisable to use a buffer site.

You will not only protect your money site, but you will boost the stats for your Web 2.0 that will pass the link juice to your money site.

2) Use it as Tier 2

The above picture speaks a million words!

Several Web 2.0 blogs are created that are pointing towards your Tier 1 links.

If you are planning to do the above setup then make sure to spam your Web 2.0 with GSA Search Engine Ranking tool to pass as much link juice to your Web 2.0 as possible.


You are not restricted to use Web 2.0 for only your blog network; you can use it for any Tier 1 links

For example:

  • Guest Blogging
  • Featured on any high authority Magazine
  • Local Citation Sites
  • Much more depending on your link strategy..

How to find an Expired Web 2.0 domain URL for your Private Blog Network

Before we start finding the desired web 2.0 domains, here is what we will require:

I will try to find some quality expired Web 2.0 for hosting niche.

First; we need few keywords, to begin with.

For this tutorial, we will use Ubersuggest


You can use, but their Pro Plus version is ideal but comes with a price tag of $88/m which can be expensive if you are looking to keep your cost low.

Let’s Begin:

ubersuggest keyword tool

We are looking for the keyword shared hosting

and we found around 284 keywords initially.
