    Just about to start a massive linkwheel campaign for my new site. After reading over everything on the subject, my gut still tells me that interlinking the properties is a huge mistake. Thats an obvious clue that Google will catch on too. If in the near future they decide to discredit linkwheel links, they will easily be able to discredit your entire network of Web 2.0 properties.

    Whats the point of interlinking them anyways? Just so they get spidered and indexed? I can get something indexed in 24 hours by simply throwing some social bookmarks at it.

    I honestly believe the cons outweigh the pros when it comes to interlinking. It just doesn't seem worth it to me...

    What do you guys think??

    I've done a lot of linkwheels interlinking the different properties used in each linkwheel and I never had a wheel "rejected" my Big G. The reason? I always change the way I do each and every linkwheel. If you'll use every time the same "configuration" than Google may start to recognize a pettern, but otherwise for the moment I didn't noticed any problems with the classic way of building these money makers.

    Yeah I have never had problems with Linkwheels and the Big G myself either.

    You guys are missing the point. He is asking what are the reasons of interlinking the properties since Google may, at some point in time catch up with something new to devalue these links all at once since they're all inter-linked.

    I think you're right about that.

    I think the main purpose in interlinking is to ultimately pass the linkjuice through each property in hope that as the linkwheel is crawled, the linkjuice accumulates as each property is being linked to by a property carrying more weight than the predecessor.

    Obviously, as you said though, it would seem as the cons outweigh the pros.

    Yes, the only reason I can get out of anyone as to why we interlink the properties is just so that they get crawled and they each have 1 incoming link from a page with unique related content.

    Why not just social bookmark each property to ensure they get crawled, and then use a program like Link farm evolution with some decent spun content to send related links to it. Since the property is going to be on a trusted domain like hubpages, squidoo, etc. you don't really run the risk of the page being de-indexed if the LFE links are semi-spammy.

    To me that seems the best way to do this. Imagine putting in months of work on 100's of interlinked linkwheels, and then google decides to devalue links that are formed in this manner. Now you would be sitting with 1000's of links gone from your sites, and your pages falling fast off the first page of big G.

    I'm in this for the longterm, and interlinking properties just seems like a recipe for disaster...

    Wouldn't the best model for a natural looking link wheel be the actual interwebs itself? For long term success you can't be dependent on one type of link. You have to throw other type of links at your profile & web2.0 pages other then social bookmarks & comment/pligg spam.

    Well I've always interlinked mine and then bookmarked the hell out of them. I've also cross linked wheels with relevent and non relevent link wheels so as to create a natuaral linking footprint as possible.

    If you just create a bog standard link wheel than the big G will spot it easily - if they do then decide to clamp down then these wheels will get hit.

    In my own personal opinion (and yes I have used Link Wheels alot) then interlink the properties of each wheel, interlink different wheels, book mark them all and try a little forum commenting with sig links to diff properties of each wheel.

    If you can make these NOT look like link wheels then you have a better chance of keeping them all when G changes.
