Reciprocal Link Sites & One Way Link Sites...
Posted 08 September 2008 - 08:38 AM
there are websites that the people interested in exchanging links enter it, either free or paid, and then the webmasters exchange links with each others. IMO it is a good idea to fasten up the rate of exchanging links.
Some of those websites state it as a condition to add its link in our website first to continue the registeration, I'm afraid that Google will consider them a link farm and we are pointing to them, that will results in a problem. But those websites have high ranks, 5, 6 etc...
so, is it safe to add them in our website??

I have been offered a recipricol link by a directory that aproached me, I sent them my link details, but the link details they sent back were for a completely different URL / Company , when I querried this they answered
Many search algorithms may be able to detect reciprocal link trading as an artificial means of boosting the popularity of both sites and discount the value of these links. By doing a 3-way link from sites hosted on different servers, a webmaster can build link popularity without the search engine being able to detect the link trading as easily. According to Google’s own Webmaster guidelines, they now state you shouldn’t have “excessive reciprocal links.” It is harder for search engines to track 3-way link exchanges because 3-way links occur naturally, even if people don’t do it purposely.
So is this true, are recipricol links a thing of the past and carry no wieght?
Also, I feel this only benefits the directory and the company they are trying to promote, as I only get a link from the directory yet the 3rd party site gets a link from me.
Doesn't google discount directory links these days?
Does G! expect every link to be viral now?

For this reason alone I'd not link with the schemers.
No. Recips are just fine if they're done for the right reasons. But if they're done for the right reasons there's no reason to attempt to hide the fact that they're reciprocal links.
I think to state this as a categorical fact would be a bit strong. Though it is true that many directories have had their links devalued. Partly due to lack of authority, partly due to silly games like the one outlined that too many have been caught doing.
People seem to forget that Google is a large organization with a lot of people. What's to stop them from developing a web site (or a thousand of them!) and then approach different directories and other web sites to sort out which are requiring things that show clear intent to fool Google's automated systems? Once discovered it would be child's play for them to completely devalue those sites that aren't following their guidelines, and be 100% sure of intent.

The alarm bells had been set off, but wanted to be sure it wasn't a false alarm.
seings as I was only getting a link from a directory when they wanted me to put a link to a contact lense site, I don't think i'll bother.
why would people wanting to buy a mortgage need a link to a contact lense site..... to read the small print perhaps????

I have a question
How much do you think that this link exchange thingy works.
I would really appreciate it if you can help me.

I knew there was a special inside secret, I knew it! But remember, you can only do Trapezoidal Linking Matriflux while you're in the Matrix.
