    I started a software site about 6 years back.. I was a n00b then and thought i could compete with download.com and never knew of any seo nor did i make any links but i kept refreshing my stats page ever 10 minutes... dark dark days those were:/

    k so for some reason i kept that site alive and a script used to make good quality pages every now and then.. recently i checked that it had around 40k pages indexed and had 6k inlinks to the main domain..

    just for fun i put anchor text links to 2 of my new projects in the main site footer.. and then left those projects...

    i now see that both of them are kind of ranked on either page 1 or page 2 for their keywords..

    now my wuestion is to what extent can i abuse this.. like how many links can i place in the footer without it looking too spammy.. like a safe amount without google catching on

    I'm curious what script did you use to make the good quality pages? And how good a quality are you talking about? I have a couple sites that I'm not doing much with, but still keeping anyway.

    As far as the footer, I don't have an answer for you. But I would think you could also put links scattered around the site in other places too, and be able to get away with alot by doing that.

    3 is a great number
    5 is a good number
    8 is a little to much
    10 looks spammy

    just my thoughts
