When someone ask me to trade links with their site, how can I tell if the page they are going to place my link on is indexed.

How important is it for the page that the link is going on (or the site in general) to have content similar to your site? Would the link have no value (or negative value) if you have a site that sells animal food and you have a link on a baseball blog? hypothetically speaking

While it should be important. In reality at the moment, it doesn't seem like it is all that important.

But if you want traffic from your links (which should be the ultimate goal) you'd be smart to attempt to have links from sites where the visitors there would also be interested in what you offer on your site. i.e., they're a similar target market.

Thanks Jill. Like I said, I am still learning. This forum is a great resource for beginnings - advanced individuals and teams alike. I hope to learn even more!

My understanding is that reciprocal links should be relevant to your content and hopefully come from a high PR site. Keep links under 100 per page. I had a site recently that just would not get out of the supplementals at all. I finally got them to remove a list of links they had as a global footer, and the site was indexed and went right to number 6 on Google's SERPs.
