Link Wheels a quick question or two

by aamcle 3 replies
I've reading up prior to building my first and I quite clear about most of it.

I've already written an article that I'll use as the basis for the others I'll need they will all be unique. I may even write a second to boost the unique character of the links. I'll use one of the partially manual spinners so I don't get garbage output.

I have included a keyword that I use on my site in the text with the intent to use it as the anchor for the link to the matching keyword on my site.

So were do I anchor the link to the next article in the wheel? Am I to just pick some random bit of the text and link from that?

One item I read said its better not to link the spokes in order, what do you recommend?

I've also seen it suggested that I should set up the account using the keyword as part of my email address eg keyword@bipbop(.)com, is there an advantage to be gained by doing this?


Thanks for your help, aamcle

    You have three questions so here goes:

    1. You can link from the main text (except it you are posting to some article sites where you need to have the links in a resource box) or put them at the end in a resources or links area. Since you are using this for backlinks and not direct traffic it does not really matter much. I would suggest that you change it up a bit each time.

    2. Do not build a traditional wheel as Google is catching on to this. Be random. Some sites will link to two of you other sites, some maybe link to a site that is not yours, etc.

    3. Some Web2.0 sites will use your e-mail address as part of the URL so it's not a bad idea, but don't stress over it.

    I have developed some videos on creating a good modified link wheel for my university students. PM me if interested and I'll put them up somewhere for all Warriors.

    With link wheels, while I'm just starting, it seems like simply picking the spokes at random is your best bet long term. For my Hubs, for example I'll link to my site once, my blog and then another web 2.0 property.
