Link Wheels SEO Value Explained

Link wheel is an SEO strategy in which links are made from Web 2.0 sites to a “central site” that is to be ranked in search engines. The “central site” is generally a niche site which has a purpose of selling something, capturing email addresses and making money through Adsense. The “central site” is the center of the linkwheel, and in addition there are several other Web 2.0 sites that come linking to the central site. A few popularexamples of Web 2.0 websites are Blogger, HubPages, Squidoo,, blogs, Webnode, Weebly and many others.

The links to the Web 2.0 sites have a “follow” sense and they consist of content that is relevant to the central site where they get linked. The unique thing about link wheel is in the linking back of the Web 2.0 sites among each other, leading to the formation
of the “wheel.” Therefore, each Web 2.0 site gets linked to the central site, and also to another Web 2.0 site. Linking is the central concept of this strategy, with a better usage of PageRank flow and further SEO benefits.

branching-out of the links is achieved in this kind of linking.

    Great info!!! I am in the Real Estate Agent, what other sites on top of Blogger, HubPages, Squidoo, WordPress would you recommend I should start building a wheel with?

    Also, if I can push the traffic through a hubpages, does that any effect if I just push the same traffic directly to my website?

      Hi Gene –

      Building a Link wheel by hand can be quite daunting. I would recommend checking out our Link Chaos system. – We the work that would take hours / days for most people to do. The idea behind the whole thing is to spread out back links that are interconnected among each other all pointing back to your site. This in the end will help boost your SERP (search engine ranking), which in turn will bring you more organic visitors.

      Hi Gene,

      Thanks for the comment and sorry for the super delayed reply. Please see the below list of dofollow web 2.0 properties( I pulled off hubpages, and sqidoo as you already know them.). The key is allowing the dofollow attribute, this allows search engines to follow your anchor links back to your site. Regarding pushing traffic thru hubpages; I don’t know about pushing traffic to them as it would be a lot of work you could spend pushing traffic to your site. However, I would build backlinks to those pages which will funnel link juice to your main site which is always good.

      List of a few do follow web 2.0 sites and their respective pagerank. – PR 6 – PR 7 – PR 7 – PR 7 – PR 10 – PR 8 – PR 8 – PR 8
