    Watch Yourself When Creating Wordpress Blogs for Backlinks

    I have probably spent a few hours setting up a link wheel with multiple Web 2.0 Properties linking to one another. It wasn't a simple wheel with a --> b --> c --> d --> e --> f and so on. It was complicated.

    Anyways, I was creating each blog manually, adding articles to each and then publishing and linking each article to a different web 2.0 property and occasionally linking to my money site.

    Unfortunately, after about 24hrs, Wordpress.com had shut down all the Wordpress Blogs I had creating, deeming my link wheel now completely useless.

    So just watch yourself... Always have a back up in place (which I didn't in this case)

    I had something similar with wordpress.com blog. I had only one blog (no linkwheel) but they shut it down just because it was linking to one site only (as they have said) that blog was created only in order to promote one site and it is against their terms and conditions. So I just removed most of those links and that wordpress blog is alive again. The thing is to probably leave it without links for some time or link to many other sites than just one. They didn't delete anything from there and I didn't loose any data. I had access to my post through admin panel so I could edit them.

    Good luck!

    I didn't say JUST Wordpress.

    I said I had a link wheel with MULTIPLE WEB 2.0 Properties.

    I had Ezine Articles in there as well, a few from Articles Base too.

    A couple of Squidoo Lenses. I mean it was a huge link wheel... Or link web!

    That was the problem, taking one of these out meant the whole link system was f*cked.

    I'm not stupid enough to create a link wheel with just Wordpress.com blogs... I've been in this game long enough to know the page 1 rules.

    Sorry mis-read your post, sounds like you know what you're doing

    Wordpress.com do have a habit of being quite strict with their sites though.

    I'd been doing it for a while, using Wordpress.com with success hence why I decided to include them in one of my link webs.

    Wordpress.com relies a lot of users reporting others. And I believe that's what happened in my case.

    Is wordpress.com worth the effort. What sort of link juice comes from it?
