    I've got a new ecommerce site I'm building, and am wondering if I should use my brand name for all of the subdomains for a linkwheel. Or would Google consider this some kind of unnatural backlinking footprint and penalize me? So I would have something like 10+ web 2.0 properties all with the same name, like:

    mybrand.wordpress.com
    blogger.com/mybrand
    mybrand.tumblr.com
    etc.

    Your thoughts?
