    Although not as popular as before, blogtoplists tend to be a decent way to attract links. I'm sure you've seen them: a blog owner creates an account, adds his site, includes an image link on his blog to count visitors and your site gathers all the data to automatically create a public ranking list.

    A while back there were talks about image links (alt text within href) not giving much value so I spiced it up by adding a regular text link which most bloggers included on their blog. As a result, I got hundreds of sitewide image and text links to my site. However, I assume the site received a penalty because I got about 800 unique blog posts on the site but only receive 5-10 visitors a day through search engines.

    I'm tempted to try a similar site in a new niche but obviously don't want to end up with a penalty so I'm wondering if anyone is doing something similar and how you avoid it.

    Are there any rule book or terms and conditions of how your site will get be penalized? Really not sure about this as well.
