    A hub and spoke works pretty good, where you have your money site and have all the back-links going to it.

    Now you can use the Linked-Wheel method and juice up the links going to your money site.

    I never close the loop.

    The linking can be as complicated as you want it to be, depending upon the number of sites you're dealing with and also how organised you are at the outset to keep control of everything.

    I find the best bet is to work out your desired system and keep it as a template so that you can easily insert your sites for reference.

    Do a search here on link wheels, there is a lot of good info. Look for a long thread by JV Market, I believe.

    Closed wheels still work. However, during the last couple of weeks it seems that using open wheels tend to get more rewarded by Google.

    I don't feel that closing the linkwheel as a whole is particularly damaging. It would be computationally intensive for Google to work out something was amiss over the whole wheel, as it would have to create a database of your whole link structure and run a detection algorithm on it.

    I have many effective wheels which were closed from day 1. On the whole, it is not very important if you close the wheel or not, as the flow of link juice around the wheel, i.e. the supposed cumulative juice effect, cannot usually occurr due to inefficiencies in juice evaporation and leakage.
