Default Plz Tell What Is Pyramid Linking?

I heard from a colleague that like link wheeling there is another type of effective linking called Pyramid linking. Any one has the idea what actually it is?

I never heard about that but as the name suggest 10 sites linking to 5 and 5 sites linking to 1. Improving authority of 5 sites that point to your major site you want to improve ranking or traffic.

Pyramid linking : Say you have X number of sites which want link_backs, so you create a special page on your site called 'links' it gets populated with keywords/follow links for X number of sites. In return you get X number of sites linking back.

But instead of Site A linking to Site B and Site B linking to Site A there is 3 sites taken into account for the linking strategy so that google (and others) considers them one-way links.

Site A > Site B
Site B > Site C
Site C > Site A

(edit) .. I think I referred to link triangles not pyramids

Pyramid linking is also a calculated link building policies where we can spun one or two articles in such a planned way so that we can get a bulk number of links only from those one or two articles. By submitting this way we can avoid content duplication to some extent.

Default Pyramid Linking

Isn't pyramid linking when you have a bunch of sites that then link to a few sites that then link to one single most important site, giving that one site the SEO benefits of the lower sites in the pyramid? That's how I understand it, let me know if anyone else has a different definition.

Default it's about link quality

From what I am reading it is about both the quality of the links, and the sequence.

The idea is that you have large number of low quality links, a smaller number of medium quality, and an even smaller number of very high quality. There is also a component like described above, except rather than a triangle, you only point to the higher quality sites. So the low quality sites link to the medium, but the medium do not link back to the low.
