Before I begin, let me say that link wheels do work if you put the time into building up, promoting and backlinking to all your satellite sites, (your outer ring of 3d party-controlled, Web 2.0 properties linking inwardly to your main sites at some point).
Link wheels need some sort of pinging and linking and content in order to get noticed so here’s what I recommend for more effective “link wheeling”:
Note: some of this is theory and some of this is real-world experience…
So with that in mind, let’s think about developing effective backlinks using less time-consuming link wheels.
1- Add your site/blog to BlogCatalog - it will show up in the SERPs, albeit temporarily, for your keywords and site titles.
2- Use Twitter - Add your blog’s RSS feed to Twitterfeed to auto-post to your Twitter account, which does send manual traffic and automated backlinks to your site. This actually does build up one of your satellite sites automatically but Twitter profiles and the titles displayed hardly ever show up in the SERPs, but you do bet backlinks from it.
Note: About the Twitterfeed/twitter profile thing… I’ve seen some blog posts go a little viral with this Twitter stuff and some posts got picked up by some Twitter search engines and re-tweeted and re-posted, developing into a viral linking campaign of sorts.
3- Publish an article to EzineArticles.com - your article should backlink to your main site form body of article and deep link/inner link to article-relevant supplement post. Then wait a few days to see where it ends up ranking for your keywords and then develop some backlinks to your EZAS.
If you’re targeting 10 keywords then write 10 articles using this method. It’s better than writing 5-6 posts to a lens just to get the lenses ranked for 1-2 keywords, imho.
The idea here is to get top rankings with as little effort as possible by using the best 3d party properties to submit content to.
4- Use long-tail keyword rich domain names and also use your existing elated sites to re-purpose your content
What I practice in every day life is I “try” to re-purpose my content (modified) to several of my blogs so they all have a chance of getting to page 1, then I just generate backlinks to them and I’m building up the quality of my sites this way without having to create new profiles or accounts elsewhere.
I hope you like the information!
