    I don't know if these days Google is really starting to penalize blog networks, but in that case having tier 1 linked in a wheel for sure would look more suspicious.

    Do you still create a link wheel using the websites of your tier 1?

    It really depends...if they are high quality properties with content being added regularly and act more as a funnel to the money site rather than purely existing for SEO purposes, then I have no problem interlinking relevant properties together.

    However, the one post spammy web 2.0s (read: splogs) that are around just to help rank the money site and will probably never rank anywhere on their own I would never interlink personally.

    My tier 1 is actually made from blog with one or two almost well written articles, some images and a video. I have now twenty of them, and some are ranking for long tail kw.
    About ten of them are interlinked, the newest one aren't.

    My strategy is that I'm creating a strong network blog for seo purpose, in this niche I need to rank for a very competitive kw.

    I regularly blast them with senuke, licorne and scrapebox.

    Use madoctopus's article on How to Build a Link Network of Support Sites

    A. Avoiding backlink footprints


    1. Chances of 2 interlinked sites to have natural links from the same C-class are slim, from same IP are very close to zero. Get one different C-class IP for each site, unless they are not all using AdSense or are interlinked. This is critical! Do link analysis on successful sites and you will see the inbound link IP/domain ratio is high. If you think IPs don't matter, you're simply wrong. Very wrong! Google "seo hosting" to find offers. Make sure they have a different DNS & RDNS server for each C-class.
    2. Use domain privacy, or even better, fake WHOIS data. Do NOT use fake WHOIS data on important/main domains, however. Just for support sites.
    3. Do not interlink sitewide. Interlink from the post/text, using very few links from a site to other (e.g. on a 50 page blog put only 2-5 links towards other blog in the network, 2-5 towards blog2, 2-5 towards blog3, etc).
    4. Send links to your competitor's sites but use a keyword that you are either to small to rank for in the next 6-12 months or a poisoned keyword (e.g. "CompetitorSiteName's calculator" instead of "mortgage calculator").
    5. From some of the blogs link to a few other only with generic words (e.g. here/click here/see here/on this post/this site and so on).
    6. From some of the blogs link sitewide (from blogroll) to your competitor's site but with their site's name not a keyword.
    7. From some of your blogs, link to other blogs in your network from the blogroll/sitewide but make those NOFOLLOW. Add a few other links there (useful ones) towards other sites that are not yours (so that link doesn't stand out). While that link is nofollow, you will still link from the posts with **************** links.
    8. In some posts put some text from other of your blogs in BLOCKQUOTE tags and below add a link to the source page. This way it looks very legit - you used some text from there and you are linking to the source.
    9. Pick a few of the blogs and make them stronger than the others. If you have a 100 blogs network, make about 5 of them a bit stronger than the rest.
    10. Do not interlink every site with every other site. If you have a 100 site network group link sources in blog batches like 1-20, 13-30, 27-35, 30-60, 42-65, etc. Random is the name of the game. By all means, don't stick to round numbers and fixed ranges just because they are easier to remember and do math with them.
    11. Build both the sites and the links over time. One year is a good time frame. Don't be eager to "make money fast and easy" as there is no such thing. You need infrastructure and that takes time to develop. 100 sites all launched and index for first time within a week is a huge footprint. To optimize the whole process, assuming you can generate a lot of sites in a short period of time, go in many niches. That way, while you won't get the network to make you money faster, after a year you will have several networks not just one.

    Try to apply on your own. Take advices from point 3,4,5,6,7. Randomly link your properties together. Don't interlink them in blogroll but link them in post/page. Use nofollow tag with generic/brand/related keywords as much as possible.

    Build your Tiers Randomly and naturally and you have nothing to worry about. Some link to other, other do not. It's not hard to implement. If you can draw a nice little pretty picture of your linking diagram you're doing it all wrong.... simple as that.

    I could draw my tier 1, but I would need an half day of work.
    Nobody could draw my tier 2. Tier 3 and 4 are impossible to schematize.
