Linkedin profiles seem to be great backlinks, with that said here is my idea: using different ip addresses for each profile I create on linkedin and calling them an affiliate of my company. Each profile with a picture of someone, a name and 1000 connections a la the linkedin directory of users floating around bhw. I create 100 profiles with different names/pictures under different ip's all linking back to my url. White hat or black hat? Is this going to cause trouble. I cant imagine how they can detect this.
