    Hi.

    What would happen if...
    Say for instance a forum with over 1 million pages (easily do'able)

    If for instance i purchased a link in the forum footer...
    So every page then had a backlink. This would be a genuine way to achieve lots of links... And they would all be from the same domain.

    How would Google see this?
    Would it BAN you straight away? Or Not?

    Its a normal, and fairly WHITE HAT scenario...
    But then again, if the forum has 1 million pages plus - its also a LOT of links to get...

    Thanks

    I've read here that it will only count as one backlink since it's coming from the same domain/IP.

    Now, if you got 1 million forums to do the same, then that'd be different.

    Ah...
    OK, i see. Shame.

    Anyone else disagree? Or everyone agree?

    So is it worth doing? Or of no more value than just a single link?
    What about for the fact that (at a guess) 99% of these pages will have 0 PR - However, some pages in there may have PR 1,2,3,4?

    Having links from different pages with high PR's within the forum (IF THERE IS ANY!?)
    - Wouldnt this help?

    People do this exact same thing to achieve top rankings a lot!

    However not all 1million of the pages will get indexed at once or even quickly as they could be buried deep in the forum.

    Plus i wouldn't rely on just this method as even 1million backlinks from the same site is still not as powerful as less backlinks from different sites.

    Why not get a copy of something like Aristeer and give away themes for Wordpress, Drupal, etc. You could hide your link in the footer.

    If you do a good job you could get together a lot of diverse backlinks.

    So are you saying here that it WOULD HELP and that people DO USE THIS technique to get ranked HIGH?

    I appreciate that 1 million backlinks from our sources is better...

    1. But my question is, if i COULD get 1 million backlinks from one site - would it be of a SIGNIFICANT benefit?

    2. Because i would be getting a lot of links overnight (i appreciate many would not be spidered for AGES or even at all... BUT)
    Because i am getting so many over night - could this have a NEGETIVE effect on my SERPS for building links too fast? (even though it would be quite WHITE HAT - In my opinion...)

    I wonder if Yahoo counts links as Google does! Cause i see that Yahoo link indexed shows alot of links from 1 site.
    And if it does not work, so the famous theory of linkwheel is broken.
    I am confused.

    I do not think this is true, why would people write 6 different articles for ezine linking to one site? That's a shit ton of work for just a one link.

    And how would people know it counted as one link anyway? Even webmaster tools shows tons of indexed links from the same website but coming from different pages of that website.

    Thats because they arent doing it for the backlink, they are doing it to generate targetted traffic by then backlinking to the article itself and raising its SERPS... So instead of getting 5k/day visitors, you get 700/1k of pre-quallified visitors who are more likely to buy your product, or even click an Adsense link for more info on the subject, etc.

    I agree with this as I speak from experience.

    Entered the URL of a new site of mine in the footer of my fairly large forum with 500k+ URLs.

    Google slapped me down hardcore. Although my site is still indexed, it is not showing the index page in results for the terms targeted. Some of the pages that were ranked on the first pages dropped to 3+ pages.

    The domain was registered about 2 months ago and it went live 1 month ago. Since then, Google Webmaster Tool is showing close to 50,000 back-links. Still, my index page was removed from the SERPs. Although individual pages are in SERPs, they have dropped significantly.

    I am hoping my index page will actually get ranked in a few weeks once the dust settles.

    Try it at your own risk.

    See, a forum with a million pages WILL have lots of dupe content. Right? So that might hurt your link.

    Having said that, the most common perception, that is true to some extent, is that the link would be counted as 1.

    Or won't everyone start building link farms on 1 hosting account?
