If you’re not familiar with the concept, each site has a backlink to your main site, but each also contains a link to the next spoke on the wheel. Some linkwheel designs also include patterns of crosslinks across the wheel, but the most basic (pictured to the left) is also the least likely to be penalized as a linking scheme – especially with larger wheels.
The inter-linking passes a bit of link juice from each spoke back to the hub. Since each spoke is interlinked, a bit of link juice is also passed to each spoke, which increases the overall effectiveness of the whole wheel.
Today SeNuke added a “Web 2.0 Profile” module to their product. Really it’s just a means of building linkwheels using profile pages on social sites. Here’s how it works:
- You enter 3 lines of information, then press “start.” The software creates accounts at all of the sites you’ve selected (including automatic captcha solving).
- Next, press one button to automatically handle the verification emails for all of the new accounts.
- Next, enter the URL you want to be the hub of your new linkwheel, press “go,” and it builds the wheel, inter-linking each spoke.
- Finally, press one more button to ping each of the new spokes so that the search engines find them.
As released this module contains 490 sites:
1 PR 8 domain
9 PR 7 domains
48 PR 6 domains
87 PR 5 domains
70 PR 4 domains
114 PR 3 domains
88 PR 2 domains
73 PR 1 domains
(Please note that the PR of the main site does not directly carry over to your profile pages, but some of the authority is passed down.)
The best part about this specific technique is that since the pages are built on profile pages, unless abused by a user, the pages aren’t spammy or obtrusive. Really, the whole software package is like that. When used in a thoughtful manner, SeNuke just makes it easy to do the backlinking you should already be doing for your sites.
This new addition to the SeNuke software shows just how committed Areeb is to making SeNuke the best piece of link-building software on the market. He could have easily make this module a stand-alone product and sold it to his existing customer base. Instead, each time he adds a new module, he’s building value to an already powerful software suite.
If you can’t tell, I’m impressed.
(Areeb does a much better job of updating the software than he does with updating the sales page. The newest features aren’t mentioned, but when you sign up for the free trial you’ll have full access to all of the program’s latest features.)

Although I think the negatives associated with nofollow are blown way out of proportion, I found the following search today and thought I would pass it along.
This is a custom Google search specifically looking for blogs and forums who do not use the nofollow attribute.
Remember to be a good net citizen and only post relevant comments or forum posts. No spamming, please!

I’m always on the lookout for new or easier ways to find sources for backlinks. One somewhat standard method of gaining backlinks is to comment on blogs where they don’t have nofollow set on their comments (although as I’ve said, I wouldn’t be too hasty in discounting nofollow links, either).
Anyway, I found a small but growing search engine that will give you a list of blogs that are dofollow as well as those who use either the Top Commenter plugin or the CommentLuv plugin for WordPress.
Top Commenter is often used to give a prominent backlink for the people with the most comments in a given period. It’s designed to encourage repeat comments by rewarding them with backlinks. Often this plugin will be enabled even when the link within the comment is nofollow.
CommentLuv inserts a link to your latest blog post in the bottom of your comment.
While it’s possible to build a Google search to look for these things, it’s often easier to just bookmark a site and use it instead of remembering the syntax for a search string.
The site is called DoFollow Diver and it’s at http://linkbuildingbible.com/dofollowdiver/.
Please remember – if a blog owner has turned off nofollow, they are making an effort to help us with our promotion. The only thing we have to do in return is to make real comments to their blog posts. Please don’t leave spammy comments such as “nice post” or such. Eventually this type of comment might make a blog owner rethink their decision to give backlinks, and this would hurt all of us.
