Add a one-line explanation of what this file represents



English: Diagram of a link farm. If each circle represents a website, and arrows represent links between websites, then a link farm is an collection of artificial highly interlinked websites created for the sole purpose of trying to hoodwink a search engine into thinking that particular websites were more popular than they really were. A search engine algorithm might notice numerous inbound links and come to the incorrect conclusion that the particular websites were more popular than in reality. Generally, search engine firms are wise to this strategy, and have developed countermeasures.
