So where does link "bait" fall, if I can engineer a specific reason for third parties to link to me, is that subverting their link popularity algorithms?

In any case, it's not subverting the link pop algo; it's kind of what it's for. Get attention from lots of people and the search engines will give you attention too.

If you get links because people are stupid enough to take the bait, I don't see it as subverting anything but the toad's minds who can't tell the dif between bait and a real meal.

Not so sure I'd agree with your POV J, I'd see the content on HR as your "bait", a purely commercial site would need to come up with something different...

"allurement, attraction, bribe, come on, come-on*, drag, enticement, inducement, lure, seducement, shill, snare, tail, temptation, trap"
Would you not agree that it's the content in HR that allures, attracts, entices, and induces links ;-)

Not really, but I do understand your point!
I don't write it for links though. Which is kinda what Qwerty is saying. Link or don't link...no skin off my nose!

Eggman, the search engines can detect good/bad/indifferent linking patterns so it's probably just a matter of time before they figure out what you're doing. If you and your link partners are ok with taking that risk - then fine. But you should try and remember that it's not just your site that would be affected - it's your link partners as well.

I wouldn't be doing it to "subvert" search engines as Jill words it. I guess I would offer up a directory link as additional incentive for people to exchange links with me. Most webmasters would think that 2 links are better than one, thus be more eager to exchange.
However, since I would only exchange links with sites that I consider legit and unspammy, the directory wouldn't get labeled a bad neighborhood now would it?

If you're really careful about who you exchange links with, you may not need the directory. But I don't know. I guess it's worth trying.

I think that there might be a good % of webmasters who would see a link exchange request and think, "nah that's more trouble than it's worth" and delete the e-mail. However, if they see an offer that appears to be in their favor, they're more likely to act.
Just my thoughts.

Then you have nothing to worry about.
