I have an Amazon affiliate whose homepage main keyword has hit number 1 mostly due to SAPE links. I want to drive my subpages (around 50) to the top or near the top of Google for their respective keywords. The quickest way, of course, is just to blast the subpages with SAPE links. However, I don't want to do this anymore due to potential Google penalties. I guess I have the following questions, and if anyone is knowledgeable about this, I'd really appreciate it. Since SAPE links worked well for me before, I intend to use them again, but this time through buffer sites in the form of Web 2.0s: Would blasting existing Web 2.0s linked to the homepage a good idea? My idea is the homepage's juice would then transfer to my subpages. However, this would make my subpages thrice removed from the SAPE's original link: SAPE link --> Web 2.0 --> Homepage --> Subpage. Build more Web 2.0s to Subpages and diversify the backlinking profiles with blog comments. Hence: SAPE link --> Web 2.0 --> Subpage. This would be better than option 1, right? But the extra Web2.0 backlinks could earn a penalty, right? Is building Web 2.0s (Wordpress, Tumblr, etc.) to your money site totally safe these days? I don't plan to build too many--maybe 5 per subpage that has a high-linking keyword. Do buffer sites completely remove the chance of Google penalties these days? That is, if my SAPE links get deindexed, only my Web2.0 buffer sites will get penalized, right, not my money site? Sorry for the long message, but I'm really curious about this. Hope someone can help. Thanks a bunch!
