    A link farm is any group of web sites that all hyperlink to every other site in the group. Most of the link farms are created through automated programs and services. A link farm is a form of spamming the index of a search engine.

    When a webpage is designed and build only with the purpose of including large number of external link over it then it is called link farm. Such link farms can be found created by the webmaster who generally approach other webmasters with two way link exchange.

    If you built scads of sites for the purpose of linking them all together, that would be a link farm. But why do you want to know this? It's an excellent way to get penalized or clobbered by Google.

    The process of exchanging reciprocal links with Web sites in order to increase search engine optimization. The idea behind link farming is to increase the number of sites that link to yours because search engines such as Google rank sites according to, among other things, the quality and quantity of sites that link to yours. In theory, the more sites that link to yours, the higher your ranking in the search engine results will be because the more links indicate a higher level of popularity among users of the Internet.
