Hello,
I have a "Primary site" All Pets Considered which has been built and is hosted by an outside company.
If I need changes made I must get them to make the changes. When they were building the site I told them I'd like an area to be controlled totally by me.

Their solution was a "sub" site. Facts and Fun

The Facts and Fun page has a Primary navigation button pointing to it from the Primary site. There are also reference links within my product descriptions going to the appropriate page in the Facts and Fun site.

In the Facts and Fun site there are reference links back into the Primary site.

Have I gotten myself into a mess? I read an article, http://www.seochat.c...s/14/page2.html
which talks about Google penalties for Link Farming.

Have I accidentally built a Link Farm?

Sorry about being so long winded, and I hope I've been clear!
Thanks.

No, to become a link farm you need to have tons of links to other sites on different domains on one page. You might want to add descriptions to each of the catagories on Facts and Fun. It reminds me of the dicotimus keys we used in at a field trip to Stone Labs.

Like the others said, it's not a problem. And nothing to do with link farming.

You should be fine. :manybounce:

:) Holy Red Heifer !!
Have I created a link farm??
I have an activties page for people wanting to visit here on vacation. They can check out things to do. It points to business and places. Some link back to me some do not.
If I have I'll kill it in a heart beat.

No, don't worry!

A link farm is not a links page. A link farm is a site that agrees to give you a link if you link to all the other pages that they link to. They will provide you with a page that you have to upload to your site, which you have to keep adding all the new sites to.

Basically, link farms provide you with unrelated sites that you don't care about, and that won't be helpful to your visitors. The links page that you put up serves no other purpose than to give a link to all who participate in the scheme.

They were a dumb idea when the first person thought of them, and they're even more of a dumb idea now.

But a regular page on your site that is a links page where you point to sites you actually like and which will be beneficial to your visitors has nothing to do with a link farm. And the search engines have no problem with these.

Just never link to a site that you don't like or one that provides no value to your visitors and you'll be find. And never, ever participate in a "linking scheme."
