I'm building small sites in a niche I have discovered. To get the ball rolling, I linked to two of my new sites from two of my existing sites (2 incoming links each). I also linked to one of the new sites from one of the other new sites. Note: I have not buit a circle, it's just a one-way flow of links from old to new. Should I keep doing this or is this a dangerous practice? I seem to have gotten away with it so far, because one of my new sites is ranking top ten on a critical keyword.
How far can you stretch such a thing out before google figures it out and slays you?
