I've been wanting to do a link pyramid or link wheel for a long time for my main money site. What I was thinking of doing was taking the concepts from the black hat part, and creating a white hat way of doing it on a larger scale. So instead of spinning articles, and using throwaway web 2.0 properties, actually create proper blogs at these places with good quality content. Build the content on each of them, and then start with the linking (which is a bit black [blog comments, forums, etc..]). Anyone do anything similar to this? I feel for the money site that I actually care about, I'd rather have these link pyramids be real and of substantial quality. So each member of the pyramid would be actively developed and advertised, and look like an authority site itself, but would of course point to the money site. Do you think something like this would even be worth the time?
