    Hi guys,

    I wan´t to write a short success story about a little link "wheel"

    One site of my website was on Page 2 at google since a few weeks now. So yesterday I thought I make a very small link "wheel" for that page. It´s not really an wheel because I only used 2 blogs.

    I used Wordpress blog and the google blogger. Wrote a few words put in the link to my homepage and the link to the other blog on both blogs and pinged it...

    The keyword gets 2.470.000 results at google. With "" it gets 121.000 and with intitle:"" it gets 21.000 results. Not an big niche but the keyword gets 30.000 searches a month.

    So the fact is, I jumped from Page 2 #15 to page 1 #5 in one day. But my Domain has already 1500 backlinks so that may be some other reason.

    I think I will use this method to one other domain to try it again. My other domain is 2 weeks old, let´s see what happens.

    If you got questions, I will give my best to answer it.

    EDIT: Ah I linked the linkwheel different than my big linkwheel wich I used. On this little link wheel, I used the link from the blogpost to link to the other blog. On my other linkwheel (wich brings me nothing) I used the blog link to link to the other blog.

    Either you have a relatively easy keyword and your site just needed a little push or it has nothing to do with this small link wheel. Just 1 day feels like it is to soon for such a result.

    I would go for the "little push" theory.

    Hmm I don´t really know why. I ain´t build any backlinks the last days and the site was on page 2 since 1 month now. After that link wheel it pushed on page 1.

    I´ve tried it now for a new domain just a few minutes ago, lets see what happens... Actually it´s on Page 12 and gots only 2-3 backlinks.

    I think Google recognizes link wheel, also if you are doing effort for 15 days and then do not work for another 15 days, and on 31st day if you work, it does not mean that the effort of 31st day alone brought the result.

    In an exam you never succeed by reading only on last day, the whole year preparation goes behind your success.

    It may sound like a stupid question, but can you tell me how do find the number of searches a keyword gets. Thanks

    No you missundestand me, the 1500 backlinks are from my 7 months old domain. And the keyword wich I tried this linkwheel is one of the sites from that domain.

    My new domain is 2 weeks old and it has 8-9 backlinks...

    Sorry my english is not the best, I´m from germany.

    Yesterday night I was back on #5 and now again back on page 2 lol

    so what is the status of your site now.
    It must have come on #5 page 1 due to some good linking but then Google must have penalized you for overdoing or something to return to page 2.

    It´s back on Page 2... I haven´t made any backlinks, only that little linkwheel... I don´t know why they put me on #5 for a few hours and then sent me back on page 2...

    I do not have much knowledge of linkwheel but what I understand is that they initially crawled some of the sites of linkwheel and you came on page 1, but as I understand linkwheel makes the search engines crawl again and again like a wheel, the Google understood the trick and penalized you with -10 ranks or so.
