    A lot of people feel that G has devalued web 2.0 links to some extent. Are you still doing link wheels and are they working for your?

    IF not what is a good substitute for natural link building??

    I am considering building them wit senuke. I am also considering link farm evolution as it will work with MU!

    Thanks

    Link wheels are working for me... I added a new article on one of my site and made a link wheel... with in 1 day it got indexed by 2nd day it was on 9th rank... It's almost a week and i am on 6th rank... Today i also got 1st sale on it... So it works no doubt about it... About ranking it's rare happen like this and it can go down... Anyway even if go down it will come back again with better rank... :)

    Pure link wheels don't work well. The ones that are more chaotic do. It is all about patterns and footprints. Check the thread titled Long Term Experiment - The "Foolproof" Linkwheel

    Link wheeling works ONLY if the individual spokes are INDEXED. It does no good if the spokes are not indexed which means you have to build links or some sort of social bookmarking to the spokes which have to be varied. Get each spoke indexed then wait a while make it look natural to goog. Yes I created a linkwheel a few days ago on a site very competitive terms and went from 12 to 10 but ONLY after the POSTS were indexed.

    I get so tired of the link wheel debate. It's not the link wheel concept, but the crap some people build their LWs with. If you put cheap gas in a Ferrari, eventually it will break down.

    Agreed. You have got to use all original content for the first tier then at least 60-70% spun content for the 2nd tier in my experience. How about you whats working for you rocket?

    Link wheels are still working but not like old days... It was said from starting that if you want best result then get good and unique content on your spokes... I saw foolproof link wheel thread and I am planning to follow that with little tweaking of my own... Hopefully soon I will be able to see some result...

    If you use Link wheels for you link building campain, you are in the wrong way. Link wheels are for ranking your web2.0 page for long tail keywords.

    Will Linkwheels work if I do the following

    1.Put up a 100% unique article for each of the 10/15 web 2.0 pages

    2.If I dont close the wheel at the end, thus making an open wheel

    I mean if I link each web 2.0 property to the main money site and to the next web 2.0 page EXCEPT the last one, then the wheel remains open

    will this work?

    3.Pinging and bookmarking each of the web 2.0 pages

    If I do all the three things mentioned above, then the linkwheel will work or are linkwheels not working at all:(:(

    Do suggest some other methods and strategies that can be put to Linkwheels so they can be made more effective

    thanks

    Ankur - it doesn't matter how good the wheel is if it is not indexed. If any spoke which is a critical spoke is not indexed it won't mean a damn.

    Once all the spokes are indexed (2 - 4 weeks) then add another 2-4 weeks for results from it (unless you are doing things to speed this up)

    Thanks for the reply buddy

    I would request you to please tell what do you mean by "critical" spoke

    I think all the spokes are more or less equally important

    Moreover, the pages will get indexed if they are pinged and bookmarked

    Please correct me if I am wrong or am I missing something?

    If I am trying to speed things up, then what can be done?

    thanks

    Hi

    thanks for the reply people

    May be I am a noob but could you please explain what exactly is wrong with a linkwheel

    what is the reason that they worked fine before and now they are not effective

    Have they been detected by google

    Is there a way in which we can make them look natural

    thanks
    Ankur

    Just my opinion, but, there is no magic in a link wheel and there never was.
    It's just another way of creating a six-way (or whatever) link scheme.

    Why all the hype? Because before the link wheel craze began, people had
    mostly given up with the reciprocal and 3-way linking. They were boring.
    Link schemes sorta died out. Article marketing, etc got more popular. The
    Web 2.0 term was coined.

    Then came the link wheel. A 4, 5, or 6 way circular link scheme created
    for the benefit of ONE SITE. Previous link schemes, the recip and the 3-way,
    benefited multiple sites; usually multiple webmasters. Everyone got all
    excited and started a whole new "link gathering" efforts. They worked then
    because link gathering works. They still work because link gathering still
    works. If you feel that link wheels are not as effective now, that is probably
    only due to the fact that so many webmasters are doing more and more
    link gathering; but they call the particular type of links "a link wheel". Also
    keep in mind, that, at about the same time, xrumer came on the scene,
    and more recently scrapebox.

    So, you see. EVERYONE is doing more and more link gathering.

    imo,
    Bompa

    Hi

    Thanks for the reply buddy

    but the question still remains unanswered as to why are Linkwheels not effective as before?

    Just because many people started doing it

    or has Google detected it?

    Is there some way in which they can be made to look natural?

    thanks
