You may have heard the term Link Wheel, Link Carnival, Blog Carnival, Mini-net, etc. Basically this is where you setup a whole bunch of web 2.0 sites, like blogger, hub pages, squidoo, etc and link them all together as well as link back to your money site.
The concept is kind of gray hat and I was a little on the fence on whether or not I should use something like this. I have to tell you, I am a believer now!
My wife is a Realtor and I’ve been having a little trouble getter her site to rank higher in the search engines. I had tried everything, article marketing, directories, you name it and nothing seemed to get her out of position 8 for her keyword phrase.
Then I setup a link wheel for her keyword phrase and viol’a .. her site immediately jumped from position 8 in google to position 2!! It was the coolest thing and something I just had to share with you guys!
I didn’t create the link wheel myself. I outsourced using a service to setup my link wheel. I used LinkWheels.com and was very happy with the speed and effectiveness of their service!
Check them out at http://www.linkwheels.com <- this is not an affiliate link.
Your mileage will vary with this type of link building service, but the results for me so far were so drastic I had to share it!
