I have now network of small niche sites ready and thinking about best ways to ramp them up in serps. So I'm going to create such an linkwheel for each of it. 8 properties each with unique article but not about the keyword my site is but something really similar cos i dont want that those web2.0 sites starts competing with my main site! I'm not going to link those 8sites together in an actual linkwheel just they will be an site with 1article and linked to my site but for each property im going to add 10backlinks High-PR from ******** blog comenting.. So tell me is this plan better then the traditional linkwheel or not? and seriously whats the point of linking all those spikes together when I'm going to ping and social bookmark each of the spike anyways... Thanks... Maybe anyone can share their success story if you got one about linkwheels and rankings?
