Hi I have checked my competition on Google and found out that 99% of their links come from linkfarms. However, obviously it works since they are on the first page. This makes me think that Google and all the SEO-gurus are exaggerating when it comes to Google and penalties. What is your experience here on the forum? Do traditional methods like private link wheels for example still work? Can you reach a top position with these methods today in the year 2016?
