    I often see posts that list web 2.0 in their link campaigns, but I really don't understand exactly what they encompass. For example, are they autoblogs, squido pages, ezinepages etc?? someone please clarify

    It has several different meanings:

    * in general, it means websites with a high degree of user generated content or participation or some element of social networking. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_2.0

    * in BHW terms, it means trusted hosts that allow you to put up pages with your links in them. All of the examples you listed except autoblogs would count as "web 2.0s" in the meaning that most people around here use them - basically buffer pages with some element of trust to launder your really shitty scrapebox blog comments, profile inks etc through to your money sites. They're all sites owned by other people that you are abusing, so autoblogs on your own domains wouldn't fit the definition, but free hosted blog sites eg blogspot and tumblr would.

    Here's an example of how one might use web 2.0s, courtesy of BassTrackerBoats:

    * it's also the name of a particular clean-looking school of web design, eg. http://www.webdesignfromscratch.com/web-design/web-2-0-design-style-guide/

    Summed it up pretty nicely there. I know how you feel, OP; a few weeks ago, having read a huge amount of information on here, I realised that I didn't actually know what "web 2.0 properties" as part of a backlinking strategy were. There didn't seem to be any explanation either and it seemed like it was a given that everybody knew what they were. Eventually I figured it out and realised that a web 2.0 property is a part of a site you have contributed to, ie. your own blog hosted on blogger, wordpress etc. or a page on hubpages or squidoo for example.
