What if I create and interlink multiple micro niche sites?

    Hello
    I am wondering how the following plan will work.
    1) Chose one broad niche
    2) Find easy to rank very narrow KW's (A website with 1X1000 word or 2X500 word articles would be more informative than top ten results in google) For example, 20.
    3) Get around 10 old and 10 new domains.
    4) Get A class ip hosting and build web-sites.
    5) Interlink them so that every single website will have around 10-15 backlinks.
    6) Try to get few high quality natural links.
    7) Put google adsense account banners. (By interlinking them this way I am already telling google, that all the web-sites are mine. So it does not make sense to use multiple google accounts because this way I will definitely risk losing everything).

    The idea behind it is, that every single website will have 10-15 very niche specific permanent homepage links. (Such links are a way too expensive on BHW and I will create them for free) And will possibly be enough to rank them at least in top 20. (If those links are not enough for page 1, I will link all the 19 websites to them and if still not enough will try to rank each with web 2.0s or purchase pbn links. )
    The drawbacks is, that Im putting all my eggs in one basket within the specific project. There is high risk, that if one of the web-sites get hit all of them will get penalized (But I think, that building only high quality links will lower that risk).
    The second drawback is, that it smells like self-promotion. (And it is, of course). And if google has that criteria in its algo the project will definitely be unsuccessful. (But if all the websites have quality backlinks and my micro-niche websites are useful for users why the hell self-promotion must get my websites penalized).

    If I had enough cash I would have started that case study but now I want to hear your opinions too and weigh my decision better.

    What do you think about it? Have you ever tried something like this?

    I don't know what others will say, but I think this will be a big footprint and wont do you any good.
    Its different if you use those 15 sites to link all of them to one site you are promoting, then with A class network, hopefully no footprint. but not interlinking them all.

    Can be a big footprint. Use different class IPs.

    The old site linkwheel method - NG, OP, NG.

    I stopped using that process about 4 or 5 years ago as it caused all the sites interlinked to fall off the face of the earth.

    Build them but do not interlink them.

    This is what we call as Linkwheels. Google will push your sites deep under the Earth's Magma when their algorithm triggers a link wheel alert.

    Better build a 10 site PBN and send their juices to a single authority site with higher competitive keywords.

    Edit : Boats beat me to it! :D

    Ok, thanks everybody.
    Now I got it. The idea behind backlinks is, that if your website is linked by others yours is considered as a high quality website by them. This is why google considers it as a positive factor. If you link to your website it does not mean, that your website is useful.
    The best way is to create a niche specific pbn and promote 3 websites at max. I did not know about linkweel as it became outdated long before I started seo. I thought it was something wrong, but asked this question, because I have seen some websites ranking via linkwheel. For example, narutogames235(dot)com. It is an obvious linkwheel (See flash game sites), but it is ranking for at least 6 months.

    From what I see, narutogames235 was registered just before 2 weeks and its ranking not because of the linkwheel but with the power of 301 it's getting from narutogames dot me. If you analyze a little deeper, you'll find all those linking sites are registered on the same day so it's basically a bunch of churn'n'burn sites that are 301'd after every algorithm update/refresh. I wouldn't recommend that strategy for an authority site.

    Best not to interlink your sites, could be a reason for all of them to lose rankings at the same time when the evil G strikes.

    narutogamesdotme was ranking before. I have just forgot the domain name and now recalled. From that I can conclude, that the following domain got penalized because of LinkWheel and now the new domain is ranking because of 301 redirect. It will also go deep under the earth when the penalty passes to it. There is no necessity of case study because we can see a live example now. :)))

    I build a mixture of authority sites (or authority sites in the making) and a few micro niche sites and these get linked - not as a wheel but as tiers. I also throw in some non-monetized quality PBNs and a mixture of quality (5 - 30 article) web 2.0s (some of which are also monetized). My goal is monetize almost every site I have control over (in different ways - Amazon, ad networks, etc) at some point and most of these are linked. This does assume some risk and it would be wise to have multiples of these networks NOT linked together in case Google strikes one. If you do everything your supposed to do in regards to quality and footprints, I find the risk is low enough (and I'm risk adverse) for my tastes.

    The sad truth is that you don't need to worry about a penalty because your sites won't even rank in the first place. When all the sites linking to any particular site are on the same IP the site is on, no link juice will pass to that site. Simple and short.
