Web 2.0 is the medium of making backlink by making account on these websites and sharing link in several ways. Making backlink web 2.0 for your site or blog, you can increase search engine rank. If it is done very well with web 2.0 with low quality then also good ranking is available. I said this, because when I researched web 2.0 in Google then I saw a site of sub domain in the wordpress.com. I have got this site in web 2.0. See link in the following. First is link of that site and next is web 2.0 for that site.

  • A wordpress.com blog site of Google page rank 3
  • A web 2.0 of that site. This has done in Google sites.

Then, web 2.0 has value, it is almost said. I noted one more thing. Alexa rank of that site is 10,486,722! That means traffic is less in that site in Google page rank.

The aim of web 2.0 is making backlink. And, link building is done for increasing search engine ranking. If you stay at the first side of search ranking with a good keyword, then the search engine will arrange massive traffics. For all these reasons link building is a process of web 2.0 link building. I wrote some aims of web 2.0 in the following:

  • Doing web 2.0 you can make standard backlink for your website or blog.
  • Doing web 2.0 you can take backlink from high ranking sites.
  • By web 2.0 you will take which backlink that backlinks will help to increase search engine ranking and others ranking.
  • Though web 2.0 doesn’t give so much traffic, but it will arrange massive traffic by search ranking.

How to do web 2.0:

Doing web 2.0 is not such hard matter. But if you do this in wrong rules then it can be penalized. Not only web 2.0 but almost all process of link building have been updated. In 2014 Google algorithm has updated. If you don’t follow all these rules and spam then there is the possibility of penalize. There are given some rules and suggestions of web 2.0 correctly in the following.

  • In this article I will share some site for web 2.0, by searching that in Google, save some web 2.0 sites in Google drive or Microsoft excel file. Then it will be easy to work.
  • Now, visit sites one by one and register with others information including email.
  • How to get backlink from which site, you will understand in this site. Normally seeing that site, you will understand. Then see process in the following.

#1. If that site by making sub domain’s site, they give permission to publish content, then it has to do through content publishing.

#2. There are social site like Google+ or YouTube. Here, you can take backlink from account profile page.

#3. You may publish any article in another format in some site.

  • After making an account, if it is done, then activate the sub domain. In most of the cases it is done. Don’t do sub domain with your keyword. It is better to do with another name or keyword. No need to worry with design. Publish standard article. The article must not be same category like your site’s article. If the keyword is “English language learning blog” then that article will be in “Hindi language learning blog”. At the end of the article, write keyword link in the credit or any other thing. How much backlink you will take from a site of sub domain that much value will increase. So try to not take more than 2 backlink from one sub domain’s site.
  • Some sites don’t give permission to do sub domain. Like in Google+ I, you have to log in by Gmail account and it will be done with a backlink by giving link in profile’s website or in this type section. You will take profile backlink in all social sites like google+. Nothing to say to this. Everybody can do this.
