What if those Tiers are their own properties then point it to money site? Quite a number of providers out there using this tier-approach-linking by building web2.0 and other assets. We've seen it works but the concern is in the future, it may be added as penalty criteria for search. Any thoughts?
Any unnatural linking will always be noticed at some point + penalized.
Better to have a site which is so valuable people naturally link to the site.
Then market that site.
