    Search engine spam or search spam is a method that deliberately uses to manipulate the index of a search engines. There are many sort of methods can be used to accomplish the spam indexing system. It is a black hat technique used in web spamming activities.


    And the link farm is a developing of the link within the group to all other sites in the group. It can be created by hand but mostly works by automated program. The link exchange program is something that distributes and exchanges the values between sites. Link farm is different from it and so can be understand as one way links coming directly to a single site.

    Link farms are developed to manipulate search engine rankings, they are not designed with users in mind, hence they're considered search engine spam.

    Link farm is something that receives the link juice from many sites. It is intended to manipulate the result in order to gain more popularity (backlinks) and it is so called a "receiver". Thus, it is just the one who has only chance is to profit (backlinking).
    Of course, this is one of the black hat method search engines, must admit, Google took a lot of time to understand.

    I haven't seen link farms indexed on Google lately, but tons of junk domain names with fake meta title and meta description and meta keywords that are giving them relevance on top of search results, all with the XYZ domain extension, and all of them redirecting to a Hostgator affiliate link.

    I guess this is made with automatic software too, being kinda alternative to link farms and, effectively, being search engine spamming.

    But Link Farm term is almost used for spamy links, as in link buying sections of different forums, buyers asked to sellers we don't need links from Link Farm Sites. Actually by listening "link farm" it comes in mind the Sites having hundreds of OBL (links) on the site.

    We can say that link farm is a website which contain majority of incoming links. The purpose of developing these type of websites to increase the traffic of other websites. Spam means unwanted things, If any body search a keyword in search engine and search engine display different content which is not related to keyword its called search engine spam.

    We can also be responsible for spam. It is not just the crowd always to blame. ink farm concepts was more vivid and bright when all companies were interested to increase their PageRank no matter what. This also made the SEO doing companies to start some websites, get some PR and start farming it.

    Some websites are only developed for advertising purpose. These type of website have lot of incoming links called as link farm which helps to increase rank of the website. Spam means some thing appear to a user forcefully basically user is not interested in it.

    Link Farming is the process to increasing the link popularity of another website by increasing the number of incoming links. Link farm is a set of fake websites that includes links of your website to increase the ranking on search engine result page. This process is considered as black hat SEO techniques which is penalized by Google.

    A link farm is any group of web sites that all hyperlink to every other site in the group. Manipulating search engine indexing is known as search engine spam
