    Hi folks. I had an idea for building a massive amount of backlinks (albeit low-quality) and was hoping to get some input from more experienced members.

    It should be relatively easy to create a database driven website containing tens of thousands of pages. So imagine you have 10 websites, each website containing 10,000 pages, and each page having 5 backlinks. This gives you 500,000 backlinks at your disposal. Now distribute these among, say, 5 white hat money sites for a total of 100,000 backlinks per money site.

    These will be low-quality backlinks, but the idea is that what we lack in quality we make up for in sheer quantity (of course, one must get all these 100,000 pages indexed by google, I'm not sure how to accomplish this, but I'll save that question for another thread.) Then supplement these low-quality backlinks with your normal link-building methods to also get some high quality backlinks.

    Is this an effective strategy? Would it help your search engine ranking? Any advice/help is appreciated. Thanks.

    oops you are forgetting one basic thing..
    these 100000 backlinks are equivalent to at max 5 backlinks since they are from 5 different ip's

    Build less links but of higher quality and you will have the same effect.

    So Google only gives you credit for a max of one backlink per ip?

    But the question was about the effectiveness of building these massive low-quality backlinks on top of your normal link building strategy.

    A bit more than that, but basically, they will discount all the links like that. Otherwise, you could just build a blog farm on a single IP, propagate massive links and just always end up ranking number 1. That worked in 1996, but not now.

    IP variance is essential in any backlink strategy. Sitewide links, for example, are effective but only up to a point. Where that point is has always been uncertain. It probably hinges on the sitewide links being quality links as-well.

    One thing that is certain, however, is that you will not be able to punch through the tougher competition keywords if you only have 5 low quality sites "voting" for your websites. I don't think your plan will work, although it will not hurt either if you spread out the links and use them wisely.

    I always prefer quality to quantity.When you are getting back up from only 5 ips then why one should go on trying for this massive linking.Now if you can manage to variate the ips then its okz,else.........

    build links relevant to your site content rather than building links in 1000000 websites.

    This has no bearing on my question. The question was whether building massive low-quality links on top of your normal high-quality links was helpful.

    WTF? Did you not read the thread? Once again, this comment is irrelevant to the issue at hand. I am not asking about building massive low-quality links instead of high-quality links. I am asking about building massive low-quality links on top of your normal link building strategy.

    On top of does not equal instead of. Why is everybody confusing this?
