    I have been told on good authority that a context relevant backlink is worth more than a high PR non context relevant backlink.

    As such is it not a good idea to just make loads of quick throw up blogs with the same keywords as your main site and just have them link to your site?

    If this is a common practice what is it called in l33tspeak interwebz terminology so I can study it some more?

    Making your own fake blogs is a tried and tested SEO strategy. Links from inside a large relevant text body are powerful - but only if Google trusts the site they come from.

    A strategy I have been following for a long while to achieve the trust required:

    1) Leave at least 3 days between creating each mini-site

    2) Vary the names and urls of the blog to a high degree - reducing the focus to the industry the product is in, rather than the product itself.

    3) Only 2 out of the 4 articles to be uploaded will have the keyword product's name in the title.

    4) Heavy out-linking to .gov and .edu sites and wikipedia.

    5) Pinging all posts.

    6) Using scrapebox and manual commenting to get PR 4/5/6 links to the mini sites. No "crossed wires" - a spam source will only ever link to a network once. About 50% of the links go to the home page, and the rest are divided up among the subpages. My target keyword features in about 25% of the anchor text submissions.

    7) Absolutely no interlinking - yet.

    8) I have resorted to buying some content, but I am still making a lot of it myself.

    9) Articles are posted the next day, then the day after, then 2 days after that.

    For everyone, the purpose of making a network like this will be different. In most cases, I am looking to bolster pages on which my income depends. Some of the networks I'm building are more like insurance policies - when an inevitable Google shift occurs, I want to have some A material ready to jump in and restore position.

    Is this what is known as a 'link wheel'? and does this method prevent google flagging it as such since I was told you can get in trouble if they catch it as a deliberate link wheel?

    In terms of content I can write loads in my niche easily but then again it's a time management thing...

    How many blogs and posts (per blog) are we talking here?

    Should I only target one keyword per blog 'cluster'?

    Guys, its really not that complex. You have to understand that google wants people to be linking to a site because it is a good site. So if some random blogger links to your site then google views that link as a vote for your site as being, "good." Thats what google wants.

    With that being said you have to make your blog look as natural as possible. This is the only sure fire long term strategy to link building.

    Going forward, google is going to crack down big time on anything that looks shady or out of the norm. What I would suggest doing is going to some real blogs and look at how they write their articles. Look at how many they post her day. Look at who they link to etc.

    Micallef's strategy is good. The whole idea of following Micallef's strategy is to make your blog look unique and authentic.
