    If I build big amounts of comment links to just my 2.0s, is it possible the money site will get penalized?

    You may have some Google dance but I don't think there will be any penalties.

    Honestly I'm also wondering if anyone had any penalty experiences with this

    Never! The penalties never pass from one site to other, the only trouble you can get is that google penalize your 2.0 site, even ban it, and posibly the web 2.0 admin clould delete your blog.But your money site never will be affect...

    Imagine then how easy will bi if you build links for your competitors sites...

    depending on your current position and age of site, but in generally it doesn't affects on your site, you can only get banned on web 2.0 and have some Google dance. neither google or you can decide who is making backlinks to your site.
    don't forget to use proxies and different IPs.

    Hubpages recently unpublished my hub because of the blog comment backlinks i made, they say its against their TOS and will not be republishing it!!

    So if you make a hubpages hub beware of this!

    It depends actually:

    nice site + moderate spam = no penalties
    crappy site + blatant spam + competitor complains = possible penalties

    Google will not use a factor that could be used to hurt other sites.

    Happened to me too. Hubpages remove my hub for making backlinks (that´s stupid). But only Hubpages and it was no follow, with no other I had problems. My squidoo page has like 7.000 backlinks and not one complaint.

    Boris - it would be a good idea to hit those links that are linking to your
    squidoo page with backlinks and build a nice powerful wave of links to your page.

    Hey BassTrackerBoats, the 5k are all SB AA blog posts! Do you think i should pick the top 1k (PR) of the 5k and Blast them with more SB AA blogs?
