    If you do a search in Google you will find masses of information.

    Just in case you are not spamming and are generally thinking of joining one. I wouldn't, full stop - ESPECIALLY if you are not running it.

    A link wheel basically is a process when you build 10 or so new blogs/web pages using web 2.0 properties such as squidoo, blogger, hubpages etc, this is an extremely easy way to get additional traffic but has been brought into question on how safe and effective they are for long term SEO results given all the updates from the big G in recent years.

    Hmmmm...an advice to all would-be SEORs - You will hurt your clients rankings over the long term and get a bad reputation if you get into this kind of practice. There are different kinds of link-wheels which can be classified into simple, moderate or intricate. SEO companies might get into this practice if they are trying to rank for Medium/High Traffic - Medium/High Competition keywords just to bypass having to build a great website, quality content, Social Media interaction, commonsense approach to backlinking and waiting.

    A link wheel in general is a procedure in which you can build a dozen or so new blogs/web pages using web 2.0 properties such as Squidoo, Blogger, Hubpages and more. This is extremely an easy stepto get additional traffic and high quality backlinks.

    Link wheels can be a great benefit to individuals and businesses who want to promote their website and gain exposure. By linking a target website through a number of other web 2.0, blog, article directory and social media websites, it increases the number of back links to the target website. Back links are one of the major factors used to determine a website’s search ranking position. The higher a website ranks in the search engines, the more likely it is to attract visitors.

    I agree but you should add a warning that if caught by Google you will lose all your ranks.

    Agree with KernelPanic. It's crazy to get involved with Link wheels as you will get penalized sooner or later and months of hard work will be wasted. Just do the website and promotion properly without any underhand tactics and you will be rewarded in the long run.
