    Does creating a linkwheel constitute link farming in Google POV? Thanks, great forum and excited to hear from people smarter than me on this.

    Google frowns upon any method used to artificially inflate your search ranking.
    But unless caught by the big G you will be fine. Avoid footprints and patters and add quality links to the mix.

    I don't think that Google will look at this at link farming unless you have absolutely no variation in your links, anchor text, etc.

    If you keep everything exactly the same, than there might be a slight possibility of raising a red flag for google to see.

    But I wouldn't really worry about it.

    You might get a G stagger right off.
    But I don't think your going to have any problems after that.

    It's usually because of building the backlinks a little to slow or to fast.
    Give this about a month to two for all of the links to kick in.

    That makes perfect sense, thanks for sparing some time to ease my mind.

    I would also add....

    Be sure that this isn't the only method that your using to build upon.
    You need Quality Backlinks from other sources, If nothing more than to blend everything.
