    I have a site with about 100 pages on it, each one for a different keyword.

    If I make a second site, put up the same 100 keywords (different content) and on each page link to the original site, and have the page on the original link link to the new site. (using WordPress's pingbacks)

    Will this help both sites with SEO?

    Thanks in advance.

    Youtalkmedia,

    It would seem that you would just be competing with yourself in search. I suppose it would improve each site in terms of backlinks and it would get you more exposure anyway so I don't think that would be a bad thing. For example you would have double the chances to draw in traffic even though the sites would be competing with one another.

    Hope that helps,

    Shawn

    Google will just see it as 1 domain pointing to your site. You'd better set up 10-20 sites with 10-20 pages, pointing to various "natural looking" links and pages of your main money site.

    It is not something I would do.

    I am really trying to make the two sites compete with each other, that way I can bring in more traffic.

    I am really wondering if the sites pointing at each other will help the SEO or hurt it.

    I do also have other web 2.0 sites linking to them.

    Well it would be seen as a reciprocal link, and considering reciprocal links are the least effective, I would not waste my time making hundreds of them. There are far better things you could be doing to bring money in.

    Alright, well, I will be making the pages anyways, so I may as well link them if it wont hurt them...

    My main goal is to get 2 links in the top 5 spots instead of only one, and hopefully double my traffic.

    why don't you just make the site in another language? that way you would be targetting a completely untapped (by yourself at least) audience, just get someone to translate your content.

    I would not particularly say it would not hurt. 100's of reciprocal links from one site to the other does not exactly look natural.
