Have LinkWheels Finally Had Their Day
Has Google wiped out linkwheels?
In the last couple of weeks I’ve noticed a couple of different sites in separate competitive UK markets absolutely tank. One site has dropped down 7 pages for it’s main keyword term and the other almost 10.
Those are quite big drops considering both sites were on the 1st page and have been fairly solid for 1-2 year plus.
Both of the link profiles of these sites relied heavily on web 2.0 properties, wikis, spun 1 page sites, and were interlinked in classic link wheel style.
At the same time both the sites have tanked. Coincidence??
