Hi all,

i am new to this site. i have got a doubt in link building. Please someone help me.

I own around 10 websites that are recently launched and i have done some link building for that in <article directories>.

From my 10 websites, 3 websites are performing well which had keywords with very low competition. But the remaining seven sites is not performing well due to high competition and recently i found that the seven sites are unlikely to perform in the near term. But these seven sites have the large number of articles that i have posted.

My queries are;

1. Can i edit and change the links in the articles for the non-performing sites to the links for the 3 performing sites ?

2. In that case will devalue any of the links or the current performing websites as the links have changed recently from the articles?

3. will google think that this is "Link farm"?, even if links are from top <article> directories?

Please clarify?

Thanks in advance

Yours is a vey common problem, more competitive terms are always going to be harder to rank for, I would suggest that article submission is not good enough alone to do this. Surely the work vs reward benefit of ranking the more competitive terms is worth the effort? If not in your case chaging the links will devalue the 7 sites but pass that benefit to the 3.

One thing though...are your sites interlinked? Same IP? Same WMT? GA account?

Just a thought

Thanks for your reply. The sites which i have, are not interlinked, but they are hosted in Same IP (C Class IP Differs), same Webmastertools account as well as Google Adsense account. Please let me know your views?

For promoting the high competitive terms, what should i do further ?

Once again thanks for your reply.

BEst Regards,

Well the first thing I would do is seperate the domains amongst seperate IP's, and G accounts etc. Though not a common scenario I have tested single account sites to outrank those in multiple site accounts, while everything else was equall.

Firstly you should read up on links, you won't find many in here who talk about artificial link building or the dreaded link buying, but most if not all do it in someway or another, (whats the difference between a banner and a textlink in googles eyes? Not a lot. Which is legitimate advertising and which is naughty? the line is very thin, if not invisible) It completely depends on your situation, you should approach (as allways) in a natural fashion, do some harveseting and find some sites that will display some links, this is hard going and will take time but you need to do it.

If your going to start link building, give yourself time, 3-6 months for an averagely competitive term would be my synopsis.

There are ways of speeding this up but those my friend are an SEO'ers secret, you will learn with time.
