    I'm setting up a link wheel (first time) for a new money site.

    I'm setting it up with 4 outer wheels and 1 inner wheel... the outer wheels will consist of web 2.0 sites, one of which is the primary that becomes part of the inner wheel.

    I have a couple options for these primary sites, they could either be hosted web 2.0 sites like blogger, wordpress, squidoo, etc. or I could use my own domain on a dedicated IP and use wordpress.

    Which would you say is the best option? Is there an advantage to either?

    Thanks for any help, first time doing this and want to get everything setup properly.

    Are you doing this manually or with software? Just out of curiosity.

    I'm doing this all manually. I have some tools I've created for assisting in word press install and some article spinning, but the majority is manual or assisted.

    Still unsure about this though - anyone have any input?

    Thank you!

    To figure out where to host your primary sites, ask yourself this:
    Do you plan on building for the long term and keep building related sites in this niche? Then build on your own domains
    Do you want to share your revenue with sites like Hubpages? Some of these sites take part of your money.
    Do I care if I lose the sites? Blogger, Squidoo, Hubpages can take down your sites at their whim.
    Is your niche worth $10 and a few hours of time to set up a new site?
    Do you want to build up someone else's site or your own?
    Do you want to have unlimited monetization options?
    Do you want the possibility of selling the domain in the future?
    Do you want the convenience and flexibility of WP plugins that make your life easier?

    The advantages of using Web 2.0 sites like Blogger for hosting your site is that they are established sites and you can throw tons of links at your pages with less chance of sandboxing or deindexing. And of course, they are free, but the tradeoff is that you lose full control of the site, sometimes they get part of your income, and you can't sell the site. But they are good for doing tests on a niche to see if you can rank or get traffic for a term.

    Sounds like you plan on interlinking your own network (same IP of sites)?

    If so, forget it, especially with a closed linkwheel. Use publicly facing websites for your properties, such as blogger, wordpress.com, etc. Don't self host, interlink and create extensive wheels all based on the same IP. Their overall effectiveness drops to close to zero since its all on the same IP address.

    After creating your wheel using popular Web 2.0 properties then use some backlinking tools like Scrapebox, or XR to link those properties.
