Undetectable Linkwheels – Link Strategy Diagram

How can you get your website to the top for competitive keywords? You setup a network of websites that you control! Here’s how you can use the authority and trust of web2 properties to gain higher SERPs. What you will need is at least 24 unique articles, minimum 300 words. You can write them yourself or outsource them. Then you will register at any of the following web2 properties, but make sure you choose at least 24. If you know or use any similar web2 property, you can of course use that instead.

Weebly, Zimbio, Hub Pages, Ever.com, Squidoo, Vox, Quizilla, Wet Paint, Live Journal, Scribd, Buzzle, Clear Blogs, Ezine Articles, Tumblr, Blogger, WordPress, Kongregate, Xanga, Bloglines, Mylot, Goarticles, Helium, Associated Content, Swik.net, Edublogs.org, Blog.com, Blogetery, Insane Journal, Blogsome

Use the following diagram and fill the green, blue and gray buttons randomly with your own web2 properties. This is gonna be your own personal diagram. It doesn’t matter where in the diagram you place a certain web2 property, what matters is the linking.

Green Buttons are the backbone. They receive links from everywhere and are interlinked in a way that is virtually undetectable by algorithms. It’s called a Hamiltonian path which is an NP-Complete problem. An NP-Complete problem is a problem that there’s no known exact algorithm to compute it, only approximates can be used. Keep in mind that because of some links going from the green buttons into blue ones, it kinda breaks the perfect Hamiltonian path, but if we weren’t to do that we would be left without further diversification and the benefits that the blue (and gray) buttons give us.

Blue buttons are secondary sites which further strengthen the green network, as well as link to inner pages of our main website.

Gray buttons are fillers that are not linked from anywhere in the network (although they can be). They provide some more strength for the entire network and act as some kind of distraction, since they’re neutral (not linked from anywhere).

Yellow arrows represent the links between the green network.

Blue arrows represent the Hamiltonian path which carefully directs the juice into the upper green button, which should be the strongest site in your network. This website then links to your main website.

Red arrows are links to your main website or pages from your main website.

Pink arrows randomly interlink your entire network.

As you’ve probably noticed, the right side of the image is an exact replica of the left one, or vice versa. They are actually 2 networks, because they’re not linked to each other in any way. The only difference is that the left network links to page1 and page2 of your main website, while the right network links to page4 and page5. This acts more as a trap for any similarity filters that google might use. If google sees such similarities they could devalue your links, but I have never experienced this issue myself. Ideally, just in case you would want to add or remove a website to change the structure and interlinking of the network and thus its similarities to the second. The more locations you can get links from the better. Not just because you’re getting more links but because it looks more natural to the search engines to get links from many places.

Because there are two networks, you could use just one if your keyword is not that competitive. You can add more later anyway. You also can add strength to your network by getting links to any of the websites. The whole process is pretty time consuming and most won’t implement it. That’s exactly why YOU have to do it. Get yourself the advantage of not being lazy and do the work. Stop whatever you’re doing and start implementing a linking strategy based off this diagram. It will be the single most important SEO campaign you did in a while.

  1. Hi, thanks for your amazing work pal! Just 2 questions: a.- have you tried this strategy on a concrete example you can share (keywords->google result SERP)?
    b.- what's the purpose of setting exchange links between the green buttons at the lower levels? wouldn't that be an error?

  2. great stuff. I notice problem though, and it's that some sites only allow 2 links, and in your diagram some require MORE than 2 links. In addition, some sites are odd in what they allow. I remember trying to link an ezine article to something and it wouldn't let me? maybe it was something else but I thought it was because I tried to link it to a blogger or something.

    Do you have any way to classify certain sites as gray, blue or green before you start the linking strategy or something?

  3. @amazing – The green buttons link to each other to strengthen one another and then further strengthen the blue buttons.

    @mike – If some services only allow two links, then use them where you need only two links. Use those that allow more links for more links. Quite simple actually.

    Ezine allows linking, but not directly in the article, you can have a link in the authors box.

  4. 1. Yes
    2. Not necessary and depends on how you build links from elsewhere. Normally you would need at least 50% of all the links to be pointed at your internal pages. 50% is the maximum, lower is even better.

    And giving variation to anchors is surely a wise idea. It looks more natural. If you don't use at least some variety and keep 100% of the same anchor, you're looking for trouble. The site may be penalized (rankings down) quite quickly.

    3. Yes.

  5. This would definately be something to 'sub' out on Elance. Do you have any results as to what type of competitive phrases you can shoot for.

  6. @Mike – Glad it's working for you and that you took the time to apply it. Most don't.

    @Dan – We, the webmasters usually have a lot of work to do in many different areas, so it's definitely the best if you can outsource this to someone who is RELIABLE and does exactly as shown. From my experience it's very tough to find such people online, so good luck!

    Competition is relative, so I can't comment on that. You may have a keyword with 20 million competing pages and it will be easier to rank than a keyword with 100k competing pages. It all comes down to the first 10-20 results and how strong they are.

  7. It seems that more than 24 articles are needed. Even doing half of the graph would require 27 articles(# of arrows you have pointing out not counting red)plus 12 articles to originate from the 12 sites. Seem, like 39 articles are needed not 24. Am i correct? Also how long does it take to normally see an effect. I have started the process but am not done. Thanks

  8. Where did you get that number? Only the buttons (gray, green, blue) are articles and there are exactly 24 of them.

    The arrows are links.

    I suppose it would take you a few days to get this done, but it can be done in one day only once you setup your linking plan and determine which web2 sites you're gonna use.

  9. The arrows are links with your keywords as the anchor text. It means that each of 24 articles would have 2 – 3 outgoing links pointing to other web 2.0 properties.

    Check first whether a property allow that many number of outgoing links. I know HubPages have restrictions, and there are others who consider having more than 2 links as spamming.

    Happy linking!

  10. Thanks for this diagram. Articles isn't a problem as I can hire indians for 2 dollars per hour, but the confusion of the arrows kills me. I understand it is random for a reason, but it would have helped if you specified what button stands for what service. The linking limitation is hard to overcome. I have ready 20 articles and I'm planning to use this method for 4 link wheels for 4 seperate keywords. Damn, that will be a lot of articles.

    I know that regular link wheels aren't as effective anymore, so my question is.. How effective is this method right now in June 2010?

    Has anyone used in the past month with results?

  11. I get that! This style is just making ur site "SPAM", trust me and that diagram will work after 48years… why b'cause your the only one who know your blog plus your keyword w/ a way high competition they won't get to your blog.

  12. @Mantas, the only way to really know is to test it yourself. I've had good results with it, but haven't used it recently because I haven't made a new website in around 6 months. Depending on your competition, if its low that "linkwheel" might be all it takes to get you to the top, but if you're in a more competitive market you're gonna need more links from anywhere you can really get.

    As always it's best to diversify your linking profile. Google algorithms update frequently and the value of certain links along with it. Diversify and be prepared.

    @Anonymous – I choose this style on purpose. I don't care if it looks like spam, it looks funny to me, that's the primary reason I choose it. It's my blog and I like the design πŸ˜›

    As for the traffic. It was never my intention to drive huge amounts of traffic to this blog. I have mainly raised awareness for some of my blog posts on a few forums. For a reason – usually when the masses start using all of the hyped up methods, they become ineffective. Look at the linkwheel. Howie made up the term, marketed it like mad and ultimately made it worthless.

    Furthermore as you see the blog is not updated a lot, a few posts PER YEAR. Right now I am not targeting any kind of keywords, hence I don't really have any competition. I haven't built a single link to this website, except for some xrumer profile spamming which was a test anyway. If I ever start optimizing this blog, you'll know.

    I do rank #1 for "share a schnitzel" though, but who likes to share schnitzels anyway.

  13. Great Linking concept and thanks for sharing. One question before I start on one. I assume that the links to my Main Website and Pages1-5 contain the Anchor text (and variations) of the keywords being optimised for those pages. But do I also use similar variations on the anchor text when I am interlinking between the Web 2.0 properties? Or in other words is it as important? Paul

  14. This is an excellent post, i have seen ways of linking your websites together to get better search engine rankings but none as clear and concise as this one. Thank you

  15. still confused what us the difference between main website and page1-page5 ?

    is main website my blog homepage and page1-page5 are the pages that link to affiliate sales page ??

  16. @Paul – You may test it out, but it's not as important.

    @zane – page1 to page5 are deep pages aka internal pages on YOUR website. It's important to link to your deep pages not just your root domain — whatever your linking strategy may be.

  17. Awesome stuff JohnS0N!
    I'll start using your diagram to push my sites tomorrow.

    I think the core of this whole diagram is the Hamiltonian path. It'll give the last site a lot of link power.
    What d'you think of linking from the green sites to an authority site like Wikipedia instead of linking to the blue sites…or to both if more than 2 links are allowed?

    And what d'you think about using Link Farm Evolution and WPMU blogs with spun content for the grey sites?


  18. I personally think the blog theme is hella funny. If a person can't see past it to the awesome content, then it's doing double duty as a captcha πŸ™‚

    "made up the term, marketed it like mad and ultimately made it worthless."

    Well said. Seems common, and potentially strategically planned.


    Does unique vs spun make a significant difference?

    Is the hamiltonian path really the key? With all the links interconnecting the Hamiltonian path seems less relevant, than the semi-random of the rest. For a bit I thought you had a separate/mirror hamiltonian path on the yellow links.

    Does it make any difference to drip feed these articles or do it a short period of time.

  19. @Joko – I would link to both. And yes, LFE and WPMU would most likely work.

    @TroyNotes – That would depend. I haven't made any separate tests for this, but IMO it shouldn't make much difference if the spin is good.

    The Hamiltonian path is not just a key to ranking, you can rank with other similar link paths too. The difference with the Hamiltonian path is that is theoretically undetectable, hence more link juice will be passed to you and it should be future proof.

  20. Hi

    I want to give this a go

    I have some spun articles that have a high indexation rate because they're so different.

    I have 4 different spun articles, and I want to do this linkfarm system, but will not link two spun articles to each other.

    Has anyone tried it this way? I have no motivation or desire to write 24 articles by hand, they will take me over a week, and I don't have the funds to pay a writer to do it for me either.

  21. I have 98 domains all related to my niche. I want to find someone who can build and maintain something like this for me. I think its a great idea. Please contact me at ruprecht27@gmail.com Thanks

    Or else tell me where I can find someone who will build this according to these plans. Thanks again.

  22. This works fanatistic!! Wow, don’t know if my other seo efforts are working or if it’s just this, but I noticed a hike in traffic and rankings about 2-3 weeks after implementing this.

    I noticed a couple of people outsourcing this task on wickedfire.com too.

    Brilliant, you my friend are a genius!!

  23. I will try to work out a deal (discount) with someone who’s providing this as a service for my readers.

    Or if someone would like to provide this as a service (you would need to have some reputation on any website), you can message me and you could provide this service here on my blog.

  24. This looks a lot better than all of the link strategies I have been using. Thanks for the diagram, I have printed off 6 copies then I will attempt to interlink them all after I have tried this on all individual domains. I’ll come back in a few weeks and let you know how it’s working out.

  25. Hello ShareASchnitzel,

    I like it a lot and have already implemented this. However i have a BIG question :

    What anchor text do you use ?

    – For the sites pointing to the homepage and the inner pages it’s easy, it’s the keyword of the home/inner pages.

    – But let’s take an example : the column 1, line 3 green rectangle :
    It has 3 outbound links, so 3 anchor texts… I’ve always heard it was a bad idea to use more than on time the same anchor text to link to different target URLs on the same page (which seems logical : if 3 anchors are the same, why would they all link to different URLs if one URL is REALLY the most important).

    What is your take on this, how do you do this ?

    Cheers and thanks for the diagram !


  26. That’s easy, you use longtails and related keywords. Say your main keyword is “car”, you link to the other properties with keywords like “vehicle” or “red car on the street” or whatever. Just stay on topic and try picking the best keywords for it, the ones that are most related to your website.

  27. Hi.
    Great work pal! The thing about the Hamiltonian path waaay impressed me! πŸ™‚
    I remember studying these things back at the university and thinking I would never ever see it applied to real life, and here you come with a heck of a counterexample! hehe

  28. Wow, thank for the great sharing πŸ™‚ i hate backlinking…but seem like no choice if want to get free traffic from search engine, will try out your method πŸ™‚

  29. Johnson,

    I had a couple of questions regarding this method that I was hoping you could clear up for me:

    Anchor Text:

    1a) Anchor Text from Backlink Sources – When building backlinks pointing to your Web 2.0 properties from outside sources (I.E Blogs, Forums, etc. etc.), are you using any KW Anchor Text, or no?

    1b) Anchor text between web 2.0 profiles – When pointing backlinks between your Web 2.0 properties, are you using KW Anchor text?

    2. Linkbuilding – When your building links that will be pointing to your Web 2.0 properties, do you point those backlinks to any specific property within the diagram, or do you just randomly point the backlinks to whichever Web 2.0 Property of your choosing? I guess what i’m trying to ask is if there is any particular method to which Web 2.0 property you initially begin linking to when starting the process.

    Thanks a ton for posting this!

  30. Hey Jay,

    yes I am using either the same keyword or a long tail keyword from the original one. Say if my keyword is “red apple”, I will either use “red apple” between the properties or use a similar keyword like “big red apple” or “red apple tree”.

    I randomly choose the web2 properties.

    Now GO and create the “wheel”. You won’t regret it, I promise. As long as you’ve setup the linking correctly and if your keyword is not super competitive, you WILL see ranking improvements.

  31. Johnson,

    This is AWESOME! I have a question thats kinda related to the question above what i’m posting. I too am kinda confused and was hoping you could clear this up a bit. When your sending links TO the Link Farm, do you have a particular preference to which Web 2.0 property you link to first? Does it matter?

    I’m going to get this thing put together, i’m just a bit confused on which Web 2.0 property to start sending tons of links to first.

  32. JohnS0N – great share, thanks!

    I just wonder if we really need all 24 Different web2.0 properties/accounts? Would love to simplify (and possibly increase the juice??) by grouping blues, greens, grays into a fewer web2.0. Thinking what might make the most sense…

    Your thoughts on it?

    P.S. E.g. hubpages need 75 score for links to lose nofollow. So a few hubs in one acc. would get the score higher. Etc…

  33. @Mike – How you link to properties doesn’t matter too much, just get as much as you can. But as for the main site, the better quality links you can get, the better the properties may rank and the more juice is gonna flow back to the main site.

    @Rank Service – Yes, we need the 24 different properties. This is the basis of the system.

    • …the basis of the system. Hmm… Would you mind elaborating a bit as to why? Not arguing here, simply trying to understand the nuances. Is it traceability?

      In this case, since This diagram is for 2 wheels, would you suggest to use 36 or 48 diff. properties for triple or quadruple wheels? Or for new wheels for different sites? Would you suggest to use proxies for All of them?

      Do you see cases when using the same acc. for different wheels is ok?

      Thanks for you time!

      • Well yes, one reason is traceability, the other is that it’s better if the links come from different urls back to your main domain. We know that a link is a vote to your website, so the more websites link to you, the more votes you get.

        Different is if you would use same web2 sites for some of the “buttons” that don’t link to your website, only to other “buttons”. In any case I would recommend using 24 different ones, but you could use same ones for linking to the other “buttons.

        Well, actually as you see above, this diagram is already a 2-wheely (24), so one wheel is 12 properties.

        For triple or quadruple wheels, which I would also recommend to use, you can use either same sites or different ones, what matters is that the properties who link back to your main pages are not the same as in your previous wheel.

  34. Johnson,

    Another question. Say for example i’m going to use Squidoo as one of my Web 2.0 properties to place an article on. Will I need to have fresh, totally new and different Web 2.0 profiles for each of the 24 articles, or is it ok to post multiple articles under the same profile?

    • Either way is cool. Same accounts or multiple, maybe it’s even better to use same accounts since there’s less chance of your accounts getting deleted by the owners.

  35. What a great post, thanks for taking the time to do a diagram for us. I want to implement it. However I have a question – betcha didn’t see that coming πŸ™‚

    Anyway what I want to know is since there are 4 links max coming from web 2.0 sites, can I do the four links in more than one post? Two links from one article and two links from another?

    I know that would mean more articles but some of these sites will consider your site spam and ban you with too many links in your post.

  36. This is great stuff, thanks for taking the time to share and explain it.

    I thought I had this picture figured out, then I started reading you post again. Just to make sure I’m clear on this, the blue arrows are only representing the path of the link juice flowing to the upper green button, they are not links. Is that correct?

    And by saying β€œThe strongest site”, are you referring to the site with the highest PR?

  37. Johnson,

    Looking at this post and considering its from 2009, i’m only left to assume that there have been some significant changes in the structure of Web 2.0 properties. Primarily alot of Web 2.0 properties now using no follow. So if this link wheel/farm is geared at creating a flow of link juice within itself to pass off to your target page, then wouldnt it be safe to say that none of the juice will be passed on to neither the web 2.0 properties or your target page because of them being no follow?

    Im currently in the process of trying to find 12 web 2.0 properties that have do follow so I can utilize this method.

    • Yes, that’s true. Web 2.0 properties can turn nofollow or even disappear, so it’s up to you guys to find some new ones. You can also use the better article directories along with web 2.0 properties, so you have plenty of choices.

  38. For the web 2.0 sites to gain authority and strength themselves, they will require new content to be added. How would you suggest that these new posts are constructed as far as linking? Could you use the same pattern but move the properties around (much the same as the mirrored side) So you’d have a first ‘layer’ of articles on the web 2.0 properties, then another ‘layer’ on the very same user sites with the Hamiltonian structure being shuffled around. Also if you were to have more properties available, where is the best place to add them? As additional grey properties? (ref: image above)

  39. First let me say thanks for putting this information out there.
    I built one of these linktrees, but I have been having a hard time with indexing.
    Is that normal?
    I suspected that perhaps the content wasn’t unique enough, (70% spin from 4 original unique articles for total 24 articles) , so I replaced the nonindexed ones with 100% unique content.
    In a few cases it worked, but not in others.
    Anyone else with this problem?
    Any advice or insight?

  40. Hi,
    2 Questions if you will answer:

    1) How do we “power” the network, i mean where do we add backlinks, all over the 12 properties (in 1 wheel), or just the grey (entry points) buttons?

    2) Can bookmarking sites be used for this? For e.g. stumble,digg, etc.


  41. just came across this design, and like the look of it, i was wondering if anyone knows of the web2.0 sites and articles sites that are dofollow and that allow upto 4 outbound links, which would be nessecary to impliment this design. as i see this you need 4 sites that allow 2 outbound links, 16 that allow 3 links, and 4 that allow4 links
    also as i am writting this it is march 2011, so i know there are now quite a few web2.0 and article sites that have changed to no follow since this post was first made.
    just wondering if anyone has uptodate info on the web2.0 and article sites for this.

  42. I purchased this package from their team, and in 3 days after completion, my PR3 sub-domain (so not a new one) dropped from the 13 place (it was stuck on the second page for months) to 147.
    Undetectable? πŸ™‚ Still waiting for the results.

  43. I tried a service similar to this one but the results are not visible yet. How can you guarantee to me that I will grow up with your solution? πŸ™

  44. Thanks.Nice post.I purchased this package from their team, and in 3 days after completion, my PR3 sub-domain (so not a new one) dropped from the 13 place (it was stuck on the second page for months) to 147.

    • That’s a normal thing (and random). It’s called the google dance. Especially if you haven’t done any linking in a while. Just keep on building links and you’ll come back stronger.

  45. This is great stuff, thanks for taking the time to share and explain it.

    I thought I had this picture figured out, then I started reading you post again. Just to make sure I’m clear on this, the blue arrows are only representing the path of the link juice flowing to the upper green button, they are not links. Is that correct?

  46. Hey, thanks for the info man.

    If you’ve been making money online since 1895, you must have had one of the first computers… πŸ™‚

  47. Hi

    Thanks for the diagram and tutorial. Please could you give me some help with a couple of questions.

    1: with this post being so old is it still the best method for a link wheel ?
    2: Am i right in thinking that the blue arrows are not links?
    3: Should i use all do-follow sites or a mixture of do-follow and no-follow ?
    4: sould i use the same layout of pink links as in the diagram or would should i literally do them with random choice by myself.?

    Thank for any help in advance

  48. “Ovidiu May 2, 2011 at 12:46 pm
    Now it’s on 424 place. And still counting… ”

    Judging by the date of your post, I would say your drop in position is more likely due to the Panda update than this linkwheel. It may be the Google dance, but if you followed the scheme as described, there is no reason why it should adversely affect your position, since there is only 14 links going to your site. If you did a blast of 1000s at a time, that might drop you briefly, but not 14. So I think it’s probably just a coincidence and the reality is you have been ‘panda-ised’ like half the other sites on the web.
    The Panda updates were about onpage factors, not offpage. So I’d look at your content and SEO rather than your links for the cause in your drop.

  49. @Ovidiu – This linkwheel could not have caused this. It was panda. Most of my websites got hit too. And while shareaschnitzel.com is not one of them, my properties suffered major serp losses that only now I am recouping.

    @Everyone else asking if it still works. The search engines still like links, and the search engines still favor web2 authority sites, so unless these things change, this diagram will work.

  50. Dear all,

    Just one question. I have got 5 inner money pages for my website. Can i take the same UNIQUE content information for my website and SPIN it to get 24 other spun articles and apply this method?

    Or do i have to write 4 100% unique article for all my money pages and spin it again?


  51. You can see some effect by spinning one, but if you write more, you’ll get more unique articles and SERPs will also or at least should go higher.

  52. If I had my own network set up in a similar way to the green network, pointing to say 3 main sites, would you recommmend the 3 main sites being on unique IP’s?
