I used to do a lot of linkbuilding, but since penguin I've been pretty quiet. I do know that one of the most effective ways to to still gain ranks is through an anonymously run link network (c-class, different hosts, registrars). But do any of you have a set-plan that you follow? My plan right now is to build ~10 - 15 websites on various hosts (shared and vps). That would all be roughly in the same niche as my money site. These websites would have their own content and be genuinely unique and different from anything else. They would all contain an article that is directly related to my money site's niche and have a link back to the money site. I'm anticipating a cost of ~$500/yr for just maintenance of the network. Is this a solid plan?
