Penguin Update – Link Building Case Study via LinkResearchTools.com
The Penguin Update is not exactly new any more – there was time enough to dive into the data and have a look what distinguished the Google Penguin Update Losers from the Winners. One of the best experts to do an analysis like that is Christoph Cemper. Why is that – because he has one of the best toolsets in the industry at his disposal and he is a renowned specialist when it come to link building and link analytics.

A short update on my ranking study:
3waylinks states that it will take about 48 hours on business days to get your site reviewed and approved once you have submitted it. Well in my case it went a lot faster! Merely 8 hours later my site was approved and I assume that by tomorrow the first links will go live. Hopefully the results will help my in my race against time – Google recommendations will work for only three more weeks – will 3waylinks help me to get ranked fast enough?
How fast can you get ranked if you want use your last chance on Google recommendations?
I will conduct a little experiment to see how effective 3waylinks really is:
As you may know the Google recommendations programme will be suspended end of August… Not much time if you want to make a little money from that.
Today I started a domain with firefox referrals and want to get it ranked in google as fast as possible. As a kickstarter I digged the page and made one doFollow blog comment on a blog I found here on seo-traffic-guide.de. That, together with the link from this experiment page should get the site indexed.
After that I will use nothing more than 3waylinks to get an accurate picture of the power of 3waylinks.
Of course I could do more linkbuilding – but I do not want to use any other methods in order to see what 3waylinks can do for me.
Stay tuned, next update will be as soon as the site gets indexed.
I have to admit – the first hit from google is for a keyword that is a little bit weird: “kostenloserfirefox mozilla”
But nevertheless – it is a hit and I checked the ranking – and now hold your breath: Google page one, ranking number 4! That is a very good ranking (Although for a seldom searched keyword)
Let’s hope that things go on like this and at the same speed!
[UPDATE: I do not own this site any longer and thus don’t track it’s progress]
Next step in my small ranking study: my firefox site is indexed at google – that step went rather fast. So I went on, installed the 3waylinks wordpress plugin and did some keyword research with KeywordElite to find out what Keyphrases I want to rank for and put the site into 3waylinks. Currently I am waiting to the site being reviewed. Hopefully this will be done by tomorrow – let’s see how long it takes until the first visitor arrives on the page 🙂
