Are the traditional Linkwheels still worth doing?

    by traditional i mean each web 2.0 pointing to a money site and to the next web 2.0, making a circle. it seems to a lot of people that this method is not practical anymore as it leaves a huge footprint for google. are the traditional linkwheels dead now? and are link pyramids really better?

    Traditional linkwheels are dead and buried... the interlinking leaves a footprint that a blind man can see.

    Good question and although both are dated methods (anything stated on forums is dated) it still works, just not as effectively as it used to in the past. It will be interesting to see what some BHW member's have seen recently when using link wheels (both from thes forum and their personal link wheels)

    what do you recommend as an alternative to the linkwheel? any modified versions to reduce footprints?

    Link Pyramids.
    I am seeing good results but you must do some manual work (manual register to web 2.0 properties and fill in as much as you can the profile details) to leave no footprints. Write quality articles on this sites. Start linking after 3-7 days after the first article. Bookmark and blast the hell out of this web 2.0s with backlinks with xrumer/scrapebox.

    This is how I get nice results.

    The original linkwheels are ineffective now. If you want results you need to build random structure. Write original content, build nets over time, larger number of aricles on sites....

    You should read Micallefs thread, it is very useful!
