    It's the Google dance. Continue building high quality one way links and add good content to your site and you should see positive results soon.

    Linkwheels are proven to stop working as all as they used to, look into other link building methods.

    Hey guys !

    To answer your questions :

    - No, i outsourced teh content so it's 100% uniqeu and quality because it was my first kind of serious try with link wheels so i wanted to make it perfect,

    - No i didn't over spam, created a propretie and gave it a few bookmarks and pinged it and this is it,

    - My domain has been created back in aprile so it's around 7 months old, and it's already got a couple of hundred links from difrent sources,


    It seems that linkwheels aren't working any more for puching sites but the web 2.0 propreties are still ranking high and you can use them directly to promote the stuff you want which is good too .

    Hi

    I dont think that linkwheels dont work, I use my own 'linkwheel' method that is very effective.

    Shitty throw away backlinks dont hold much weight, thats always been the case.

    You put link on your web2 parasite, web2 property gets spidered, your link gets spidered, you get listed.

    Now, your parasite holds no weight, so next spider comes, no more juice for you!

    Juice up your linkwheel properties and watch the effectiveness amplify!

    linkwheels are a footprint, dont use them, theyll just get you canned once google realizes how many people are abusing them, wait and see, it'll happen soon enough, you can still get SHITLOADS of links easily without it, whats the point?

    Yeah, sloppy linkwheels are easy for goog to spot. Effective linking uses Web 2.0 props that appear 'random' to the SE. Interlinking them just gives G a roadmap to detect and disable any benefit they may have.

    Ok, but what if i want to use only web 2.0 propreties to promote stuff like many people are doing, how can i do it effectivly since a lot of people are saying that linkwheels are dead but web 2.0 are still ranking high and getting traffic and works perfectly for promotion, i'm thinking about finding a group of low cop keywords and use web 2.0 to rank for them, how can i do this properly ?

    Setup web2 site A
    Point links to web2 site A
    Perhaps use web2 properties to build those links?
    Point web2 site to whatever u want(your site or affiliate page)

    Now setup web2 site B and rinse and repeat


    Its not that it dont work, its just that if you do the sameas everyone else, it wont work

    Why not try linkwheeling Web2 site A, then call that "My Web2 Power House" and make a bunch of them.

    Keep your Web2 power house genuine and legit(new content and community interaction), and it will work well for boosting juice to future domains/affiliate offers

    So you're saying open linkwheels will perform better than closed linkwheels??
    I don't know but I'm not saying you're wrong. Can someone confirm this?? If this is the case then I'll need to follow this course for linkwheeling.

    Anyway, host32, how many web2.0 did your linkwheel builder build per day? Maybe Google didn't like the sudden increase.....although you mentioned you didn't link-spam, so I doubt this was the case, but the info will be helpful.

    I have always wondered about all these black hat tactics. If linkwheels do get you canned by Google, then I'd gladly do linkwheels on my competitors who are ranking higher than me.

    Like right now I have a site that makes over 3k a day ranking #3 on first page. I could easily spend $10,000 to build like 100 link wheels to kill my competitors, heck I can spend more if they do really kill the competitors.

    Any thoughts on this approach?
