Link Farm

A Link Farm is a group of websites that are all interlinked to one another to boost their SEO. Most link farms are created by specifically designed programs. They are meant to perform spamdexing – spamming the index of the search engine. When link farming is done intentionally, it is regarded as SPAM, and Google issues penalties for such actions.

Link farms were developed back in the 1999 by search engine optimizers to take advantage of the fact that search engines depended on link popularity.
