What Should The Links Page Be Called?
Posted 12 October 2004 - 11:25 AM
Hope you had a good weekend. I was just requesting some links and received the following -
Could you put us on a page that is not called links.htm, link.html, link.php, etc.
Google does not like those pages. Any page at all is fine as long as it does not have the word "link" in it. We appreciate it and you do get a very good link in return from us.
This does not make logical sense to me (but not many things do hahaha)
Can someone please confirm if this is correct or incorrect?

Nowadays, the standard backlink check is even screwier than that, but the don't-call-your-links-page-"links" concept seems to have gone away.

If nothing else, it reminds me not to include links to sites I don't like, or don't think my visitors will like.

Sites You'll Like
For Your Convenience
Stuff You Might Like
Ok, that last one I just threw in since I say it all the time, but you get the idea!!
Think about having the name of your links page fit the type of site you have. If you offer an e-commerce site, using words like "partners" and "resource" may sound better than "sites you'll like" or "stuff you might like".

(Sorry, I haven't had lunch yet and seem to be going a bit light-headed...)

It did cause a small amount of confusion, though. The DJ before me would announce I was coming on by referring to "Bob and Ethel" and I started getting mail for "Bobbin Ethel," like that was my air name or something.
My links page, however, is called "seo-resources.htm". I changed it from links.htm back when there was all that talk about this stuff, and I don't think it really made any difference.
