Hello Warriors,



I have recently been trying to figure out a link building campaign for my new squeeze page, but cannot get anything figured out. I finally decided I was going to build a linkwheel...but then found out google can spot these and penalize you for them.


So, instead of linkwheelin' I was going to create 6 Web 2.0 properties that do not connect to each other, but only connect to my squeeze page. The properties each will focus on a primary keyword, loaded with 2,000 words of unique content.

These properties would be backlinked via blog commenting, article submissions, social bookmarking, pinging, and angela backlinks.

In addition to being backlinked by these web 2.0 properties, my squeeze page(the main page I am targeting), will also be linked with ezine article submissions, social bookmarking, pinging, and angela backlinks.

I would appreciate it VERY MUCH if some of you guys that know you backlinking can critique my plan and give me a little guidance.

I have been running in circles on this for a few weeks now and really would like to get started!

    Hey mate,
    actually I don't think that Google penalizes linkwheeling at all... They have stated this on numerous occasion. They are familiar with a couple of footprints (such as the closed link wheel) though, all they do is move on to the next one without giving you any link juice, thus the result is waisted time and (maybe) money. But then again, thats open for debate I guess (if it was that easy though, then I would probably write a script to get my competitors penalized. Blackhat I know).

    Anyhow, regarding your plan. I would suggest you do the following. This type of linkwheel has several levels, making it very efficient while keeping the footprint low. Before building up the wheel, make sure you get yourself some edu/gov backlinks, 4-5 of them will do you good. Wait for them to be picked up by Google too.

    On to the wheel, first you set up five web 2.0 properties, these will act as your "buffer sites". These will also link back to your website (make sure you don't link back to them though.) Now around each of them you will build a certain type of link-wheel. Lets start from the top level, submit an article to whatever directory you like and leave a link to the web 2.0 property (make sure you don't link back to the article from the web 2.0 property). Now go one level below, get around 10 articles, link randomly between them, give a link back to the top level and one link back to your web 2.0 property.

    Now get around 20-30 "Angela&Paul" style profile links and link back to your second level articles. Additionally, get more gov/edu backlinks (you can scrape Google for them pretty easily) and give some backlinks to your "buffer site" as well as to the top-level article.

    Now, to make it all even more powerful, register at "the link juicer" and leave additional links to your web 2.0 site as well as the top level article. Repeat the process with the other web 2.0 sites.

    Basically you are first getting some edu/gov sites to your domain, which will stabilize its standing. Afterwards you are building a small link farm around your buffer sites. You can repeat the process till you get tired of it, haha.
    Hope this helps.

    Cheers

      Thank you...your reply was very helpful.

      My squeeze page has already been indexed with a good amount of high PR base links on it(Angela's, blog comments, pings, social bookmarks, a few unqiue articles)...I have put these together over the past few weeks while I put together my overall plan.

      I am currently working on my Web 2.0 properties that will point to my site, or so called "buffer" sites. These are going to be unique, valuable content. How long would you recommend I make each of these?

      I am assuming 1,000 words a piece would be sufficient would work, but then again, I am new to this...

      Your insight is appreciated

        Hey mate,
        glad it helped you out! Actually 1k words might be overkill. 400-500 will do great. Good luck!

    Link wheeling is expensive as a hell. You'll need 6 domains, all on separate IP addresses, you'll have to pay extra to hide your name etc. Besides, what is 6 sites. Nothing. What will be the juice of 6 blogs from nowhere? Exactly.

    Much more economical is to use service like LinxBoss. They have their own link wheel with 16,000 blogs. They give you 200 links per month per domain, for $25 per domain. Minimum order is 5 domains, so it is $125 per months and it is plug-and-play. They even started a new feature where they back link your old back links, from their 16,000 blogs.

    Only problem with both DIY link wheel and LinxBoss giga wheels is that these links have minuscule link juice value. If you are trying to compete in a strong markets these links are useless. That is my experience.

      Actually I was talking about free web 2.0 properties, like squidoo, hubpages, etc. No investment needed. You will obviously need some kind of toolset to build it up. Somethign like SEnuke. I am able to setup around 5-7 of those "link farms" a day, combine that with the linkjuicer and it's already almost like a little "blog farm". I found that this method is pretty cheap, easy to execute and does give you a lot of "link juice". Your mileage might vary though (talking about the easiness here).
      Cheers

        Instead of Linkwheel am I now setting up Link Magnet. Not sure how good it is but I'm giving it a try. Link Magnet is a WSO on this forum

      Any reason why you would create your own 6 site network instead of just using web 2.0 sites? Also, for $125 to get "minuscule link juice value" is pretty pointless. I'd rather buy a couple of backlink services for that sum.

      I'm also testing out the buffer site system.

        you'll get equally minuscule link juice from web 2.0 site. The difference is that if you pay $125 (for 5 sites) you do not need to bother with writing articles and all the linking will happen on autopilot, without you doing any work.
