        This is not a natural way of link building.If Google figure out these kind of link building patterns then it will consider as a black hat technique. After penguin update google has taken actions against these kind of link building methods.

          Are you people for real? Do you actually know anything about google?

          Every big site uses some sort of link wheel.

          It's a terrific technique that I suppose is a big secret.

          Why? Because they read nonsense like the above....and swallow it.

            Lol, this technique is an oldie now. Everyone who knows SEO uses link wheel in their practise. And seriously, no actions are taken for the websites which are involved in this method.

          It isnt grey hat it is black hat SEO. It would be better to contact other blogs in your niche and make friends with them. Links from them would do much better than setting up a link weel.

    There are some webmasters and site owners still using link wheel for their main site and ranking for their targeted site pages. Different blog sites that are related but not duplicated content will be effective for link wheel.

      Nah. I just invented another technique. It's so new, even I don't know it exists.

      C'mon, now! Anything that happens offsite is called offsite? That's useful?

      OP, leave wheels alone... They'll bite you. If you get black belt in SEO judo, you can do them.

      And those that say that it stopped working in 2012 or so, well, it stopped working for us in 2004. I don't know what was working for you. And if you think it was working, then you missed the days when it REALLY worked.

    Link wheel is a combination of different links pointing back to your site. Link wheeling is an SEO strategy that involves building a number of links that goes from one website to another which is aimed to generate the traffic for your website. Don't go with it, which Google never like.

    Hello Friends,

    When link wheels happen naturally, it's very good. A typical example would be within a small industry in which people are linking to a small group websites.

    Hi kiran

    Link wheel is interlinking of your blogs. Create various blogs; give backlinks from one blog to another blog and to your website and so on. This process will link all your blogs to each other and to website. But nowadays this link wheel approach is not good.

    Thanks

      Every big site uses them. Repeat: Every big site uses them. From go.com to
      wikipedia, ebay and amazon, and everything in-between.

      And you offer SEO services? To who? I pity the fools.

      Everyone above who gives the same nonsense answer....well, no
      wonder you people fail. You are clueless. Totally.

        Ah, but that's a different story. In fact I wrote about it and even mentioned Wikipedia but removed the text as I thought it added nothing.

        Of course when you have different properties it makes sense to interlink them all. Why not? That's the natural way. It's pure white-hat SEO and you'd be stupid if you don't do it. But I guessed we were talking about building an interconnected network from the ground up just for -gray-to-black- SEO purposes. Unless you can give real value to all the sites in the network, and it's already really hard to do it to just one, that's a lot of effort and time to make it work in any meaningful way.

          Which is why the lot of people fail. They refuse to mimic the big dogs, but go
          along with drivel from some SEO wannabe.

          I choose to see what big sites are doing, whether or not google actually
          hates it, then implement it the same way for my sites.

          Google does not hate sites that link up, link wheeling,
          etc. etc. and of course, etc.

          I find it quite funny that the biggest, baddest sites on the net, with
          full and complete google-love, do exactly the opposite in numerous
          ways that defy so many seo-wannabes.

          I wonder why that is.

          Well, not really.

            I thought I would give you a real world example using amazon.com in a
            single reply.

            Go to amazon.com. Scroll all the way down. You'll see a link to another
            company that amazon owns, along with dozens: afterschool.com.

            Click on that link. Scroll down on that page. You'll see a link to
            soap.com, wag.com, yoyo.com....all owned by quidsi which is owned
            by amazon. You think google does not know that?!?!?

            Now on that page click a link to yoyo.com. Scroll down. You now
            see links to soap.com, afterschool.com,...and now one to diapers.com,
            (diapers.com owned by amazon), or perhaps an entirely different set
            of amazon owned sites.

            Rinse, wash, repeat. Amazon knows this linking thing.

            Truly amazing, I'm sure, to some of you.

            Now, what are you going to do? Follow amazon, as just one
            example, or some seo blabber mouth?

              Thanks for that example Paul, it's what I asked for earlier in this thead. Now I understand what linkwheeling is, not that I have enough sites to do it, but good to have the info!

                If you have a site that promotes treadmills, a site that promotes some diet pill, a site that promotes yoga, a site that promotes ab wheels and ab rockers and such and a site that promotes dumbbells and other weights, why would you not link them?

                Link wheels caused problems to people who created them exclusively for SEO purposes.

    A: Money Site.

    C links to B, and B links to A. This is called a "Tired" link building. And obviously, works pretty well.

    Link wheeling is a kind of link building technique which is not recommended since it is not considered to be a natural link building method. Ever since the Penguin update from Google, actions were taken against the websites involved in these kinds of link building methods.
