    I recently set up several blogger blogs to promote and provide backlinks for my hubs.  I've been updating the blogs everyday so google will like them.

    Most of the outgoing links on my blogger blogs are to my hubs...will google dislike me for that?

      It shouldn't hurt you in Google, but you will need to vary up your backlinks a bit in addition to blogger blogs.

      Try SheToldMe, Xomba, and Snipsly as alternatives in addition to your blogger blogs.  With those you don't have to write blog posts, just short blurbs.

        Thanks Jeff.  I use Shetoldme and xomba, i've never heard of Snipsly.  I'll give that a try.

      You do run the risk of not liking it. It is, from what I understand, against the sites ToS, linking heavily to one site. And if not in word, then in spirit.

      I have heard reports of and sites being shut down because of the linking to the same domain too many times.

      So be careful.

        I don't think there's any risk involve in having multiple blog, so far you don't have the exact copy of your articles on each blog.

      You may want to approach it this way. For every hubpage you have take the title and keywords of your hubpage and make that the same on a new blogger blog. In your blogger post have one link to your hubpage and another to a free wordpress blog using the same title and keyword.

      Repeat the process through other Web 2.0 sites such as squidoo, article directories etc. So Blogger links to free Wordpress, free Wordpress to Squidoo etc..

      This is known as a Linkwheel. The page rank is passed onto exponentially to each other free blog site/Web 2.0 proprietary and your hubpage.

      Google will then love you for that.

      Ever heard about quality backlinks? Spend your precious time in getting high quality backlinks if you can. You will see your hubs rank high if you can manage that.

      As for your question; Google likes natural looking backlinks and hates spam and abuse; so Google might dislike you. Secondly, try focusing on one blog and make it a quality blog to get backlinks from.

    Google will only give you the benefit of a few of the links from each blog. In effect it sounds like you are using a technique known as 'run of site links' where every page points to HubPages. Google caught on to this technique some time ago and it’s no longer effective.

    The idea behind Google's decision was to make it difficult for website owners to manipulate the link profile of their own sites. You need to think about getting links from qualitative pages over a diverse set of IPs, otherwise you could be wasting your time.

    To clarify, I make a hub on "I love widgets"

    Then create a blogger post titled "I love widgets", then have 2 links, one to the hub and one to wordpress.

    Then create a wordpress post called "I love widgets", then have 2 links, one to the hub and one to squidoo.

    Then create a squidoo...etc

    Like that?

      If you check another competing website, usually the first position site, see how many links it has. Firefox has an application that checks inbound links in the browser for each site. If the competing site has a few links, then it is just a simple matter of adding high page rank Web 2.0 sites into your wheel to overtake it and you get position 1.

      Sometimes this might take only 15 proprietary's in the wheel, sometimes thirty. But it does work. As a rule I use 8 high power sites in my wheels.

      Such as squidoo, high pr article sites, uk blogs, New Zealand free blogs and Australian free blogs as well as the usual suspects.

      If you really want to add some punch, submit the rss feed of each blog to pingler and pingomatic dot com. Actually I use software for my rss submissions and thats to over 100 aggregators.

      Your aim is to have a linkwheel where the power of each site is passed onto the next sites link, with a dribble from each site to your main page. You won't beat wikipedia or anything like that but you will come very close to them.

      You will often find a webmaster will slap up a post and point a few links to it such as social bookmarking and maybe StumbleUpon and forget it. We don't forget, we build a wheel that as it ages becomes more powerful over time. Our link building is extensive by adding the eight to thirty proprietary's and rss submission. Our articles are always working for us as well.

      That is set and forget. You do this with every keyword/phrase and the success you will see will be quite remarkable. It just takes a little effort.

        For anyone interested in Web 2.0 sites for your linkwheel as I detailed try these.

        I hope this helps. Good page rank powerful sites that allow you to build a post as explained. This is my list straight off the top shelf. If you want more here is a google query to find Free Blog services - inurl:wp-signup.php

          Of all of these which is a good one? I'm already on hubpages, as you can see!!! And I used to have a blogger account but never got any views. Considering I am set up here, however I thought it might be beneficial to have something else as least somewhere down the road...? I have some friends on Xanga...? Where would be a good place to start do you think?  THANKS!

                Hello Ann,

                Generally what you do is this. If your chasing a keyword and want position 1 look at the site that's already there. See how many inbound links it has for the anchor text. Seo Quake on Firefox does this.

                If it has less then one hundred I use about 8 to 12 of the web 2.0 sites I listed in a link wheel. If it has lots then I use all of the web 2.0 in the list I gave.

                Sooner or later, my inbound links will pass in quality and number as to the site holding position 1 thus my site will take the position. This always works and you will be surprised by how few of these sites you actually will need in your linkwheel.

                Clear as mud? I hope not. I use software to do this and the hub I wrote is about Evo II and the hub is titled advanced marketing for heavy hitters. It does all this and more in a few hours.

    I am new  here in this Hub Forum. I find the topic you are talking about is very interesting and your opinion's useful especialy in preventing what is called " Google Slap".

    As long as you dont make the blogs with no content and all the backlinks, it should be ok. 
    you might as well use article spinner to rewrite your hub and post the rewritten content to your blogs, each rewritten article has a specific link to the original hub. That at least is not so obvious as a link building blog.

    Link wheel idea is good and there is no penalty for creating blogs that point to one site. Cause if that was trouble then our competitor can take us down that way which is not SE will let happen. So create linkwheel with above mentioned sites. Do link to other blogs in wheel as well, that will help to some extent.

    Thanks TerryGI! I'll give it a try.  Great hubs by the following you.

    I hate the term Web 2.0, all it was actually created for was a term for the new Social revolution on sites such as facebook, it doesnt relate to any new technological advance.

    What will be interesting is when HTML 5 is finally released.

    I also dislike the misuse of web 2.0 ( i dont know why) although I always followed the definition of "user generated content" rather than social networking/revolution which has its own term, although they go hand in hand

      thisisoliposted 14 years agoin reply to this

      You are probably right, I only vaguely read things to do with the subject, from what I have read, the subject of web 2.0 is old news which has just been given a new name and hyped up by the media.

    You could also try redgage for backlinks and make a bit of pocket money. smile

    I think your best bet would be to give blogger another shot, get in to that community, create links between related sites and blogs. You can use these to promote your hubs and feed traffic.
