Suppose I have ten good-quality sites, living on different Class C IP's and not obviously affiliated with one another. I want to make links between these sites to enhance the overall search impact of my "network." Consider the four following approaches:
- Make a links page with links to all the sites and publish it on all the sites.
- Write an article about each site, with a backlink, and publish it on all the other sites.
- Write an article about each site and publish it on just one other site, making a sort of open link wheel to avoid reciprocal links.
- Write an article about each site and publish it with a semi-randomized interlinking "matrix." For example, A runs articles on C, D, and G; G runs articles on E and H; H runs articles on B and D.
Which of these four approaches would you choose? Or, is there another better approach? Or is the whole project equivalent to pouring water from the deep end to the shallow end of a pool? Please let me know what you think.
