Hello everyone!
Is there someone that has experience in linkwheel building with the help of web2.0 websites? I need advice.

I have created 3 linkwheel schemes:

5 web 2.0 sites with unique articles, the link is fixated between them (1 on 2, 2 on 3, ... , 5 on 1); every article has anchor link to our website. All the new sites I have registered in the directories such as Rss, Blog, etc.

Nevertheless, a week has passed, but the articles on the main site did not raise by anchors above the 3d page in search results, though the keys are low-frequency and low competitive.

Can everyone give me a cue if I missed something? Maybe little time passed? Any ideas?

The search engines are less impressed with self-generated link schemes than they used to be.

What do you have for links coming in from independent sources?

if all your websites are hosted on the same CLASS C IP, you may not get the much advantage. Now if all the websites are new they itself require to prove their authority to search engines. Whenever each one has not passed the quality test by search engines they will have low value of their outbound links. The conclusion is that; You need to work on all the websites to make them a QUALITY WEBSITE.

Now a days, due to excessive spamming of web 2.0 sites, search engines have started not to give much importance to link wheels. What I would suggest is to move to other SEO techniques.

Moreover, one week is too small to judge any impact of SEO strategy.

I agree with Jimmy these practices are easily exposed and can damage your rankings.

Link wheels are considered a black hat technique. Steer clear of that. You want your websites backlinks to be man made and natural with a good mixture of dofollow and nofollow.

This is one of the most imaginative ways of using web 2.0 web sites. Internet marketers tend to think that this looks more "natural" to the search engines which means that they like it better. You can do it using hubpages, squidoo, wordpress or any other free hosting website if you don't own websites yourself.

Low quality signals and footprints are going to be more and more scrutinized by Google over time.

I would suggest building out a strong website, and working to build natural and diverse links to it instead of using these types of tactics.

I've never been a fan of linkwheels. It's the "wheel" part I don't like. By creating a network, you're creating an unmissable footprint - too easy for G to spot. Using web 2.0 sites is fine as part of your link strategy, but stay away from wheels.
