It may sound a little unbelievable, but this blog is all about how to get to the top of Google instantaneously. And no, it doesn't require owning a site with a billion backlinks already. 

You can increase your ranking graph for a high-competition affiliate keyword. And after knowing the process, it will become repeatable for you. 

The technique that we're talking about is parasite SEO. Let's understand what exactly it is.

Parasite SEO

It is when you get content placed on another high authority site with a ton of backlinks, and you piggyback off that authority to get to the top of Google, followed by making a lot of money. You must have seen this before. 

For instance, if you Google the keyword "best fat burner," you'll see that the number two, three, and five listings are not on health websites. For example- My San Antonio, San Francisco Gate, and Island Now are all online newspapers and media sites with lots of backlinks. If we open up the My San Antonio post, we see right up there, smack-dab at the top, that this post is sponsored. 

Meaning that someone from Norcal Marketing paid them to put up this article. If you open up the SFGATE article, it is again, sponsored. By the way, Norcal marketing is making a genius play, nailing down the page one real estate for this keyword. But that's not the only keyword this is happening on, though.

Why does this work in the first place? Because backlinks are a key ranking factor in Google's algorithm. Backlinks ran a study on over 200 ranking factors, and they found that the higher website's domain rating, the higher the number of links a site has, and the higher the correlation with being ranked on top in the Google search results. In simpler words, sites with more links get better SEO results.

Check out the DR columns 81, 91, and 72, respectively. All these websites are beasts. This is why they're able to post up basically whatever they want, and it has a solid chance of getting to the top of Google. But, of course, there are other ranking factors like onsite optimization, content quality, and topical coverage. But most of the content that gets posted on these sites isn't that great. So is that all it takes? Just post up content on these sites, and it'll get to the top of Google. There's more to it than that. How do you contact these sites in the first place, and which ones to use? 

So, now, let's get started with parasite SEO. The first step in the procedure of parasite SEO is just finding out which sites are selling posts to choose which one you want to get placed on. To do this is easy, just Google one of these high-ticket affiliate keywords, and add the word sponsored to your search. 

Go ahead and rinse and repeat with a few more keywords and you'll uncover all of these sites in minutes. Next, you want to actually email these guys and figure out their terms and prices. You can connect with them via their contact page where you can ask them about their advertising and sponsored content fees.

Here's a list of stuff you should ask:

  • What's their price for a single post?
  • What's their price for a package?

You can save money by ordering in batches:

  • How many words per article?
  • Do they internally link to new posts?

Also, it is totally worth paying extra to place internal links to your article for an extra boost:

  • Are there outbound links, no follow, or do-follow? If you get do-follow outbound links, that will come in handy.
  • Are images allowed in their post?

For example, a lack of images and button calls to action is going to hurt conversion. Some sites won't post cannabis topics. 

You're going to see a huge range. For instance, Orlando Weekly, a DR 75 beast of a website, charges $750 per post for about a thousand-word article, and they allow 11 no-follow outbound links as well as images. However, on the other hand, LA Weekly, a DR 84, does package deals at $5,000 for ten articles. 

That's $500 a piece, and you can write the article however long you want. Also, keep in mind to ask them if their placements are allowed for a lifetime or a limited amount of time. Ultimately, you would want to choose what site you place on based on your budget and also your SEO requirements. 

Suppose you're trying to write an article on "best online casinos," and you know that everyone on page one is ranking with 5,000-word articles. In that case, not having an article length limitation is going to be important for you. 

Additionally, post on sites that have topical authority in your niche. For example, if you wanted to rank for best crypto wallet, your chances to rank will be higher if you place on another publisher site that already has a bunch of crypto content on their site. However, If your crypto article is on their site, the chances are lower. But, the bigger the domain rating, the better the chances. Everything is easy until now. Here's the challenging part. A lot of keywords and article topics are covered in these publications. And many of them won't publish twice on the same topic. In other words, you're a little bit late to the party. 

For example, look into “” and you’ll find out that it ranks with the word best in them, it looks like they've covered billions already. And if you're looking for niches to go after, this is an easy way to get a billion ideas. If a publication doesn't allow you to post on an already covered topic, it's fine. Don't get your feelings hurt; Just move on. But if they do allow it, you still need to worry about keyword cannibalization. Google doesn't like to rank two articles from the same website, and when more articles compete, neither of them gets to rank. 

However, it can be changed if you write a similar article that is better than the other one. You can make yours win with backlinks. Also, you can use a Microworkers campaign for that article. Now let's get to the actual writing of the content. The article should be fully SEO-optimized. Write it as best as you can.

It is recommended to use a tool like a surfer, which is going to tell you which entities, words, and phrases you need to have in your content and at which frequencies. It makes all of this possible by analyzing the top competitors in your niche. So you'll be just downloading a blueprint to rank on page one. 

Getting the right total word count for your article is important as well, which is why it is beneficial for you to match your word count requirements with the publisher that you're going to go to. Therefore, make sure to create your affiliate links with the URL shortener or redirection plugin. The reason for this is that most of the time, once the article is live, you won't have the ability to edit the article. 

If you want to switch affiliate links for whatever reason, such as your affiliate partner changing their link structure, then you want to be able to edit it later on your side. You can do this with the URL shorteners, but we recommend using a redirection plugin. 

After writing your article and adding the affiliate links, make sure you double-check everything because that would be your last chance to make edits. 

And then, when your article is live, does it magically get to the top of Google? Sometimes yes, but sometimes you need a bit more of a push. Here's where you level up. The answer is- more links. With parasite SEO, you want to hit these articles with a ton of link juice- links from pages with lots of links going to them. PBN links shine here, as you're getting links from the actual homepages of websites, which typically have a ton of links themselves. 

You can't send all homepage links to a single URL. It just looks improbable to Google, and it could prevent you from ranking. This is why you also need to send about 5 to 10 link insertion links. These are outreach links in existing articles.

Now, what happens if you know you're going after a super challenging keyword and you need even more power, or you want to blanket a niche and have multiple listings ranked? You are going to get similar articles placed on other publisher sites. Let's say your first article was on the best protein powder, and you got it on Get a second article from another publisher, like SF Examiner, on the best whey protein powder, but when you do so, you link from the SF Examiner article to your head honcho article on Observer. SF Examiner has followed links in their article, so you just got a nice DR 80 link to your original site. 

Rinse and repeat, and you're now on your way to complete niche domination. Hope you find this blog informative and helpful for you and your business.
