    Here is the simple method to inject your links into other people's
    linkwheels. This is probably not new but anyways...

    I'll use Wikispaces as an example. Wikispaces is supported by SENuke
    and other link building software. Hundreds of people build links and post
    their stuff to Wikispaces. Fortunately for us, by default, wikis at Wikispaces
    are public. This means anyone can edit it.

    Do the following search in Google:
    Code:
    your keyword -protected site:wikispaces.com
    You will find tons of pages created by SEOs. They are most likely already
    a part of linkwheels and have some relevant backlinks pointing to them.

    Just edit these pages and inject you link. You may go completely evil
    and replace someone else's money site link with your link or just add your
    links. Then, add them to Linklicious so they get re-crawled. Done.

    And remember to protect your own wiki pages.

    Nice twist on a method I use.

    I also loved your SEO blueprint.

    Sir, you are a genius.

    Very nice - I love it.
    If only there was a way to add your link without anyone finding out...
    I added a self-serving link to wikipedia (after adding some great info too) and it took about 4 months for it to finally stick. They would leave my info I added but delete the link. I had to argue with about 5 people about it and finally they just left it (wasn't really worth the effort, but it got personal)

    You can also take that method a step further and check the back links of the links that are already injected. From there you can follow what they did since they already did some of the legwork for you :)

    I take it though you have to be signed into wikispaces to change anything correct?

    However, some wiki platforms do require you to create an account.

    Or you can also spy on competitors that use wiki hijacking.
