10 Tips For Reciprocal Links
by: Computer Work At Home Careers
Reciprocal links are one of the most common and
most effective forms of website promotion. When sites trade links, they
both benefit by sharing some traffic directly and getting noticed more
favourably by the search engines.
Reciprocal Links help you improve search engine
ranking and generate more traffic to your web site. The quality and quantity
of reciprocal links with other web sites allows you to increase your link
popularity. Increasing your link popularity will drive more traffic to
your web site as more visitors will click through to your web site and
better search engine ranking will result bringing more targeted traffic.
With the increasing competition, getting a good ranking in the search
engines is important. If you really want a high rank position with the
search engines and more traffic to your web site, you need to work out
a focused linking strategy to establish reciprocal links with other web
sites. I know that exchanging links is not simple and take time, but is
the best time investment you will ever do.
The basic concept is simple - you link my site,
I'll link yours and we'll both get an increase in traffic. I have exchanged
many links in my web-based career. Here are 10 tips from my experience
1) Find the right site to do a reciprocal link exchange
with. Define the kinds of sites with which you want to trade links. These
sites are normally in your website's category of interest, or sites that
you feel your visitors might find interesting.
2) If you are at the beginning of promoting your
site and want to see results soon, exchange links with popular and quality
web sites. This doesn't mean that popular web sites will accept that,
but you have to try. Don't hesitate. Lots of popular web sites that are
in another category of interest, maybe accept exchange link with you.
It's your decision .
3) When you contact the webmaster of the other site,
you should be kind. Tell him that you run a site that has a similar topic
and describe your site a bit. Say that you like his site and have included
a link to it in your site (give him the address of the page where the
link is), then ask him to return the favour by linking to your site. If
you never get a reply or your proposal gets rejected, just forget it and
find another site.
4) Never be disappointed! There are a lot of webmasters
who will exchange links with you.
5) Be patient! With hundreds of thousands of sites
out there, it takes time and efforts to find and choose web sites for
reciprocal links. Keep working.
6) If another webmaster asks you to exchange link,
give him an answer. If you deny, explain why. If you like the content
of that web site then add the link. Every link is useful.
7) Exchange as many links as you can. Don't be afraid
to swap links with competitor websites. This is not going to hurt your
business. World wide web is a huge area. Internet has space for everyone.
8) Don't remove your link without contacting the
webmaster of the other site first. Some webmasters agree to exchange reciprocal
links, add your link on their site and after a few days/weeks they remove
it without noticing you. You should check the site of your partner every
now to see if he's keeping his part of the deal. If he is not, contact
the guy and kindly ask him to explain why your link has disappeared. If
you don't get a satisfactory explanation, remove the link to his site
from your site and find another partner.
9) Prefer text links rather than graphics as this
would be more search engine friendly. If you want to make your site more
impressive and satisfy your partner, add a graphic link too, but don't
10) Your reciprocal link request is more likely
to be taken seriously if you have your own domain! Some webmasters may
not even wish to trade reciprocal links with websites with URLs based
on other providers' domains, fearing the sites are not high quality. If
you are serious about your website, consider getting your own domain.
It costs some money, but the cash spent is well worth it when you realize
how much better your website will be perceived in the eyes of your visitors.
Never forget . The traffic that reciprocal links
generate is FREE!!!
