Para-site SEO

Harness para-sites for SEO.

Para-site SEO

A “Para-site” is just a term for a “Web 2.0” (a domain that allows you to create an account and publish content on it) that has higher than average “domain authority” . By creating content on these para-sites you can leverage/”parasitise” their high domain authority for your own benefit. The benefit you get is the protection of their high domain authority allowing you to build links in greater volume and velocity than you would be able to do on a brand new domain. This allows you to potentially rank that URL higher and faster than you’d otherwise be able to do with a new domain.

A parasite will either allow you to create a subdirectory or a subdomain.

A sub-directory looks like :

A subdomain looks like

Subdomains don’t really benefit as much from the domain authority of the host domain as subdirectories do. This is because search engines treat subdomains as different and unrelated to the root domain.

We prefer parasites that use subdirectory accounts but we’ll still use subdomain accounts because they are free.

A starter list of Parasites, in no particular order, includes:

Amazon Product Pages

Udemy Product Pages

Appsumo Product Page

Lynda Page

iTunes App/Song/Movie Page

Google Marketplace App/Song/Movie Page







Forum Threads (find a popular forum whose threads get indexed in Google ie Warriorforum etc)

Soundcloud Music Pages

Youtube pages

Vimeo Pages

Break Pages

DailyMotion Pages

Linkedin Profile

Twitter Profile

Facebook Page

Pinterest Board

When you decided to use a parasite you might like to check it in a program like SEMRush first to check the general trend of traffic to that domain. If the traffic trend is generally on the up then you can use it with some confidence that it hasn’t been penalised in Google.

You create a unique account at each of the parasites you want to use.

You then add some relevant content. Longer content (ie over 1500 words) is thought to work better than shorter content. The usual on-page SEO principles should be applied as closely as possible.

You can run your parasite URL through an indexing service of your choice, using only the naked URL and no keywords!

Add some social signals from Fiverr or SEOClerks etc. for authenticity in the eyes of the parasite and the search engines. Social media “shares” tend to work better than “likes” because they result in more BLs to your site.

Start pointing high authority PBN links to your parasite URL, 5-15 a week until you get where yo need to be.

You can supplement those powerful links with 5-15K spam links over two weeks if your parasite is a subdirectory rather than a new subdomain.

For additional safety you could use one or both of the following methods:

  • You could use the 301 redirect method to funnel public blog network and/or spam links to your parasite.
  • Alternatively, you could create a network of other Web 2.0 “buffer sites” that link to your parasite, then hit those buffer sites with the public network links and spam links.

Track your rankings in your favourite rank tracking program and keep building links over the course of a few weeks or months to see results and make money!
