As we all know Scrapebox is a wonderful tool with the ability to build thousands of links relatively fast. Having a powerful tool such as Scrapebox can be a blessing, but at the same time can be very damaging to your websites rankings if not used correctly.

The strategy I’m gonna share with you today is nothing new to most folks, but there are a few newbies out there that might find this information useful.

So what’s the easiest way to protect your money site from getting penalized?

The answer to this is simple; use buffer sites.

The way it works is, you build massive links to your buffer site and your buffer site links to your main money site. You can do this in any way you want it I usually do it in the form of a link wheel.

Here’s an example of a do follow link wheel:

The image above shows an example of a do follow link wheel. If you want to get the best results out of your back linking, it’s best to use do follow websites in your link wheel so that the page rank and link juice is passed to your money site.

As you can see from the basic diagram above, doing a basic link well is pretty simple.  We want to make sure that all the content you post on your buffer sites is related to your money site. It is also important to use keyword rich anchor text when linking back to your money site.

Here’s another example:

    I would add that if you are not a heavy commenter, you can build quality links directly to your money site, just be carefull and do that manually if you can.

    This is a great article – and something that I will be putting to use for my niche websites. I already have a HubPage linking towards my site and after you get a high enough HubScore, I find that it get indexed with Google much, much faster.

    Can you use the ping feature on squidoo or hubpages to make your page seem more popular? If you can will that help out in your link wheel?

      Unfortunately I don’t think the ping feature works on Squidoo or Hubpages. (I’m not positive) I’d ask support direct at to get a definite answer. That would be pretty cool if you can. 🙂

    Hi y’all,

    Will buffering site still work if I use a domain and redirect 301 to my main site, will that work?

      A 301 redirect will pass link juice through to your site but not protect it the same way a web 2.0 property of something like that would. The reason web 2.0’s don’t get affected when you mass link to them is because they are already authority sites and Google knows they get ton’s of links on a daily basis. A small business site is more likely to get punished for spamming quickly to a new domain. If your site is already considered authority site and has been aged for a while, there’s likely less chance of getting negatively affected.

    Very easy rules to follow so simple a caveman can do it.

    Always keep a buffer site between your money page and content.

    Thank you
