Ok, so this is my first actual new thread I've posted on here, so bare with me. I have a whitehat site that has about 1,500 back links when I just checked it, and I've been researching getting back links for some new adsense sites like crazy because I'm looking to make some more sites to monetize. Here's the thing. The site that I have is listed between 1-3, it varies, on google and it gets a few thousand unique hits per day. I have adsense on it but its not really a site pushes a lot of traffic to click on links, because its an informational website about a musician. I'm guessing people don't usually click links to leave there because its pretty much already the best page to go to. 2nd of all there really are no high paying keywords relevant to this site so I'm lucky if I make a dollar or two a day off of about 8-15 clicks from adsense. I've spent some time optimizing the position blah blah blah for a few years and this is about the best I can get out of it. Here's my idea... the site is built in php, so everything listed on the parent index page in the menu, gets listed on every page you click on, because it always displays, if that makes any sense. Right now I have about 45 pages, and I recently put a link to another site up on the side in the index nav and it immediately gained those 45 back links when I checked. So I'm guessing if I put more links on the side I can push the number of back links up as far as I want by creating more php pages that are off of that main index file. I really wish I could put this more clearly, I'm usually a lot better with words. So what I'm thinking is, say I just start adding more random pages such as index2.php?id=newpage1.php index2.php?id=newpage2.php index2.php?id=newpage3.php etc etc, I can push that many more backlinks off of that main index page because they still count towards each separate page, home.php, links.php, downloads.php etc. I won't actually post links to those pages off of the site nav as so not to turn this decent whitehat page into some spammy looking thing, but I'm guessing the search engines will still crawl these pages on my server and count them as backlinks rather quickly. And also, since these links won't be relevant, I can put them hidden away at the bottom and shrink the text size etc. Is this a good idea? Feel free to borrow this idea or tell me I'm an idiot because its already been done, but I've searched around here for quite some time and never found it.
