Got this from wikipedia:

On the World Wide Web, a link farm is any group of web sites that all hyperlink to every other site in the group. Although some link farms can be created by hand, most are created through automated programs and services. A link farm is a form of spamming the index of a search engine (sometimes called spamdexing or spamexing). Other link exchange systems are designed to allow individual websites to selectively exchange links with other relevant websites and are not considered a form of spamdexing.

This is an old method of getting links, and Google can spot the patterns of a standard link farm now. Google would consider this a link scheme and could punish you if they detect it as it violates their webmaster guidelines. I would recommend concentrating more on getting a few high quality links as they can be more valuable than hundreds of links from link farming.

You can read more about what Google considers to be a link scheme here:

Links are the currency of the internet. Everybody wants them, and nobody wants to give them. Just like your bank account.

Google gives a lot of weight to links in ranking your site. They believe that a lot of high-quality links TO your site, means that a lot of people like it, use it, and are writing about it.

However they important word is high-quality. The links need to come from reputable, honest, and real websites.

Link farms, are usually spam sites that are just made in order to give links to your site, and anyone else that wants higher rankings. But as it's been said in previous posts, Google can spot the trends in link farms, and can penalize your site, actually lowering it in the search results.

Here are the guidelines to make a good website - according to google

Google SEO guidelines

When it comes to link farms, Stay Away. These are websites that charge people to put their link on the site in hopes of getting their site ranked better.

Search engines will no longer give you any benefit from being on sites like this.

You can start with your professional organisation. Are you a member of a Rotary, or other Service group? A Realtor professional development group? Links from your business on these sites ( and reciprocated) will improve your ranking almost immediately

A link farm is a website or the group of multiple kind websites that use to create the back links or link selling for other website. These kind of link farm website work to improve the back links for the website.

Google consider this type of link building as black hat. So never consider link farm because google will only penalized your website.

I'm not a realtor but as an SEO expert, I help a lot of realtors throughout Southern California and link farms are terrible!

They did work in the past but now they're very easy for Google to spot because they're power was in numbers and they had a distinctive footprint.

Plus, once you get "Google Slapped" for trying these kind of things, it's really hard to bring the site back. This is a good thing for my business because I get a steady flood of clients needing their sites fixed but it always costs the clients much more than if they had simply spent their money on truly white hat methods.

Look, it's pretty simple... it's the old rule, "If something seems too good to be true then it probably is!"

And in the case of SEO, you really have to think "Does this seem right or ethical?" Because if it doesn't then it may actually work now but it could destroy your business when Google updates its algorithm.

Good luck,

Ed

Link farming is a questionable search engine optimization (SEO) tactic in which a website enters a relationship of reciprocal linking with another site or pays a provider for a large number of inbound links. Because many search engines use inbound links as a factor in determining a website's page rank, websites use link farming to boost their rankings in search engine results.

I have heard link farming can sometimes get by the search engines. I don't subscribe to this practice, as I think hard work on getting quality links will always be the best practice.
