    A link pyramid are backlinks that are layered, in a diagram form they look like a pyramid.

    At the tip of the pyramid is the site you're looking to rank, then the layer below that is high pr links normally a fairly low amount, below 1000, then you have poor quality links normally PR0 that you link to the High PR backlinks, normally there are 1000s of these.

    This is effective because it gets the high PR backlinks indexed and it passes all the link juice from the rubbish no PR backlinks onto the high PR backlinks, making them even stronger.

    It also means you don't have 1000s of low quality links plus a few high quality ones. It's a low amount of high quality links that get indexed, this stops Google for slapping you and they're really effective for SEO.

    I've been using them recently and the SEO effect is brilliant.

      page rank sculpting so that all PR juice goes to one page of your website. A bit like pyramid schemes.

    Link wheels interlink pages like Web 2.0 properties, linked to each other and also to your 'money site'. Pyramid links are not interlinked, per se, but rather tiered.

    Link pyramids are a revolutionary strategy that exploits the binding factor of Web 2.0 authority sites. From quality links below basic level, a link connecting funnels power pyramid at level 1 of the pyramid which then links to your site.

    Level Structure of Pyramid Links:
    Base Links
    The foundation of your link pyramid are your base links. Like an actual pyramid, the foundation is the largest part of the structure.
    Base links are links from niche article sites, social bookmarking sites, blog comments, deep inner pages, etc. In other words, base links are lower quality links.
    It’s important that you have a lot of these links than any other kind of links, because Google’s algorithm thinks that this is “natural.” So you want to make sure your link pyramid has a solid foundation of base links.
    Mid-Grade Links
    The next level of our link pyramid are your mid-grade links. These are links from web sites that have more authority than the sites mentioned previously, but still may not be top-notch sites.
    For example, sites that re-use EzineArticles content, mini sites and sales letter sites.
    Mid-grade sites usually have a fair amount of backlinks to them , so they have a bit of authority. That’s why Google counts links coming from mid-grade sites more individually valuable than base site links.
    Of course, that also means that you don’t need as many links from mid-grade sites as you do from base link sites.
    Highest-Quality Links
    For most long-tail keywords, you don’t even need these highest-quality link in your link pyramid. You can usually rank just fine with the base links and mid-grade links.
    However, when you’re aiming higher, you need to collect them. “Highest-quality links”, mean links from sites that already have a lot of links aimed at them. In Google’s eyes, site with a lot of links aimed at them have “authority”, and anyone these “authority sites” link to must also be important.
    The good news about getting highest-quality links is that a few links can make a big difference. So while these links are more difficult to acquire, you don’t need nearly as many of them to rank well for your keywords.
    If you want excellent rankings in Google, it’s important that your link pyramid look natural. That means having a large number of base links, a lesser number of mid-grade links, and a few top-quality links.

    Link building, link baiting, link strategies…I have been to sooo many conference panels and discussions on linking (over 50+) and never saw a simple explanation of what a noob or SEO manager should focus their link attribution/bookmarking time on. Which is why I wanted to publish a simple visual explanation or diagram of how to prioritize our SEO link efforts properly.

    These are web2.0 websites in some words... You build for example a squidoo lens, then you link back to your main website from this lens... Then, build thousands of backlinks to the squidoo page (it can't get hurt because squidoo is a HIGH authority website!)... And all these backlinks will help your website rank higher!
