Does Google Stacking Work? or Is It a Hype?

If you are a seasoned SEO guy, you know that Google stacking has been a buzzword for some time in the SEO community. What is Google stacking? It’s an SEO strategy leveraging Google properties in hopes of improving rankings using Google properties’ high authority status. To test to see whether the strategy can influence rankings, I’ve decided to order gigs from Konker SEO marketplace and try them on various keywords.

Since each gig costs $40 and I didn’t want to spend thousands on the test, I’ve decided to invest $400 on various keyword terms with different search volumes.

On June 5th, I checked the rankings and didn’t see much improvement. To ensure all the stack pages have been indexed by Google, I manually typed in site:GOOGLE PROPERTY URL in Google and found all of them listed in the SERP. Once I’ve realized that indexation wasn’t the cause for the rankings stall, I’ve decided to turn to Money Robot for tier 2 links.

One June 6th, I applied Money Robots tier 2 links to each Google stack page.

On June 19th, I’ve decided to pull the plug and checked the rankings. Here are my findings.

Rankings Improved: 6

Rankings Worsened: 3

Same Rankings: 1

Verdict: So far, I’ve spent $460 on the test and can’t say I’ve seen a conclusive evidence that this is a solid strategy which provides positive ROI. To be fair, more time may be needed to test the long term effects but I’ve decided to move on to other tests.
