Default Link Farm?

A link farm is a website set up with the sole purpose of increasing the link popularity of other sites by increasing the number of incomming links to those sites.
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.

Pretty sure link farms are a pretty black hat SEO tactic. I definitely wouldn't put much effort in to something like that if you're serious about SEO.

I read many articles that advice the readers to avoid any kind of link farm, since it is black hat SEO and for sure Google hate it. CMIIW.

Agreed. Any sort of tactic like a "link farm" where links are too easy to get is something that Google will frown upon.
