I wanted to get opinions about an idea I came up with to drastically increase my blog's PR in a medium niche... 1. I used the google keyword tool to come up with a nice list of about 500 word phrase variants relating to my niche. 2. I pasted this list in condensed 1 point font format and repeated it about 10 times (5000 words total) in the footer of my blog which already has about 200 unique pages and grows daily... 3. Next I generated anchor key word phrase links from each of my phrases in my html editor.... My plan is relatively simple.. I will go about making hundreds..thousands of new blogs on various sites (using proxies) which all have these key word anchor link phrases embedded in the footers and will also include the full RSS feed for my blog and others which are related to my niche.. Along with this method, I am also manually building up a lot of one way back links on other sites, forums & blogs which are directly related to my niche. Essentially my goal is to raise my pr and drive targeted traffic to my blog for increased ad clicks and eventually affiliate links once my traffic levels improve.. (I'm thinking 10,000-20,000 unique hits per day would be great!) My questions are: 1. Will this method work to drive up my PR? 2. What possible negative consequences might I be looking at? 3. How likely is it that my method will be detected? 4. Any practical suggestions to do this in a better way? Thanks for reading this and posting your suggestions / commentary!
