    Hey everyone

    Should I use my ezine articles and press releases as part of a linkwheel or should these be kept seperate and build linkwheels around these?

    Also, is article spinning OK and if so what is the best article spinning software?

    Thanks

    Matt

    To not answer your questions, I no longer create linkwheels per se but I do involve my ezine articles in linking to web 2.0 properties and I also have web 2.0 properties linking to my ezine articles.

    That is all done in a very random manner.

    I haven't done a press release in a coon's age either.

    I also don't spin articles, I can write a new one in under 15 minutes that is totally unique.

    Thanks for the reply,

    How comes you don't use linkwheels and press releases now?

    Press releases never did much for me and the links are rarely live links and linkwheels are not random enough for google and I started to get no benefit from them. At one point they were hot but now I get a better response from google et al by making my link "pattern" more chaotic.

    I would suggest you to prepare two kind if articles. One is for ezine and press release. Make it unique and interesting, and submit it to google news too. This is a good place to get traffic.
    The other article, spin it for linkwheel.

    Thanks for the tips guys.

    Can I submit the same article to both ezine and google news or does it have to be unique?

    When you make your link pattern, is it the same concept as the linkwheel and do you use web 2.0 and articles or do you just use web 2.0? Also, how big would you go with your link pattern?

    Absolutely unique for ezine and google news.

    If you could picture taking 500 toothpicks that dropped on the floor... that should be your linkwheel pattern. I personally continue to add to my linked articles on a regular basis so they are passing back link juice all over the place.

    I use various web 2.0 sites where I place my articles.

    I keep reading that linkwheels no longer work as before, but isn't what you refer a linkwheel, only not standard, or as you say, more complex? I mean... what we want is traffic on our website. How would we get it if we didn't have a way to drive them there?

    It's the closing of the wheel that causes it to no longer work. If you have tangents that are only pointing on way and not closing the wheel and if you make it look chaotic and random, you certainly get better results.

    Yesterday, I made a "link wheel" with 28 articles... it is not a closed wheel and it is not round, it's more of a link bomb that had almost no form where some links go to other articles, some links go to my money site, some links go to some ezine articles of mine and some go to some goarticles of mine.

    I loved it when link wheels worked because I had some terrific results in google and it was simple to do. Now you have to think much more but you can get similar results if you work at it.

    So you don't point every link back to your main site then?

    If you have an ezine article that is ranking quite well that has a link pointing to your main site, would you build web 2.0 sites to link solely to the ezine article and would this then pass on link juice to the main site anyway?

    also, does it matter i the articles are coming from the same ip address?

    No, I never do anymore. Eventually the link juice will get to my site but it passes through several other sites before it does... kind of like filtering the impurities out of water to make it pure.

    That's is a part of my strategy and it works pretty well.

    That is a common thought by many so I change my ips when I post articles.

    I use proxies. It's pretty easy... you can buy private proxies and there are free ones on the net. I pay for mine. You can use dial up/DSL/Phone card and change your proxy by disconnecting and reconnecting.

    Also, you can write your articles and just cruise around in your car to all the free wi fi spots if you want a change of pace.
