Some of my competitors using web 2.0 for link building. They have created a header navigation like services and add few services and added a hyperlink to their website. Almost 10 backlinks to 10 different created when a post getting indexed. Adding 2 links for a post is better i know.

Here is the split up of my competitor strategy:
6 links different service pages,
1 link from widget/plugin, 1
link from an image at side,
2 links in every post. Is it a natural way or google will penalize?

      Web 2.0 backlinks do not have as much value as a link from a website that has its own hosting. 10 backlinks is not a lot either, are they all from the same web2.0 ?
      Why not forget about them and just go and start building your own backlinks from quality sources. Write great and lengthy content for your own website and promote it - you will outrank them before you know it.

      You think its good? Why? Data? Testing? Just a guess?

      This is not advice and should not be treated as such.

      Header and footnote links from any page that are site wide are of house and will be seen as Spam. They will likely be discounted and could even land you a penalty.

        Google's "suggestion" is not true in the real world.

        Since when do we really trust what Google says?

        1. Site wide links do not result in a penalty. You just have to use your raw domain instead of a keyword to be safe.(i.e. domain.com instead of keyword)

        2. Linking from sites with sitewide links also will NOT get you penalized.

        We do it all the time. I do more of #2 than #1.

        That sounded funny..lol

    I don't care about web2.0 or whatever. I just care about backlinks from authority sites like Wordpress, Blogger, Tumblr etc.

    When you make a web2.0, be specific with the keyword in which you are focusing. A web2.0 must contains your website link & other informational links as well, which helps the readers to get some knowledge from it related to the topic which you are posting. A high authority site link could help your web2.0 to get immense traffic. It will boost your website rank immediately.

    Analyzing your competitor is helpful to be more creative for your site but not as a basis to improve your website.

    Web 2.0 is great if you know the correct goal.
    For example: you sell shoes
    Also in the web 2.0 you introduce how to dress, fashion ..etc..v.v
    So will be very natural and google loves nature =) lol

    Web 2.0 is a quality backlink for SEO, if you build good content then it will be a good weapon for you.

    But you need to diversify your backlink sources such as forums, social networks, profiles, ...

    Add 2 links in a post -> 1 link (spam).
