Advice on link exchanges

  • Ignore the WordPress version, it seems to have removed the word Beta from it. It is meant to be 3.0 Beta 1. Anyway, this isn’t directly a WordPress issue but I had to list one.

    Hey all,

    I was just wondering on how you lot get link exchanges. In the past I remember it was quite simple to just e-mail another blog owner and setting up a link exchange but that doesn’t seem to work nowadays as people don’t seem to like linking to each other.

    So you lot got any ideas as the only other idea I have is to link to a website and see if they hopefully may link back. I am getting quite alot of link backs via people quoting my articles so that’s all good, but I just miss the old fasion link exchanges 🙂

    Any advice on how you get link exchanges, do let me know.

  • Hey,
    I would be careful on who you are linking to your site, as far as i know, if you have “bad” site link in your site, google will not like it.

    The thing with link exchanges these days is that they aren’t quite as effective as they used to be, simply because Google discounts the value of a link when it can detect that it’s part of an exchange. The more one-way links you have pointing into your website, the better.

    My main blog is called Tea Finely Brewed, which is in the rather small niche of tea blogs. I managed to set up quite a few reciprocal blogroll links, but one of the things I’ve also found effective is to ask people who’ve linked to you before to link to a new piece you’ve written. Or if you know someone in the same niche or a related niche, ask them if they can link to one of your posts that’s relevant to them and their audience.

    Already aware of that but thanks for the advice.

    But thanks Ericdaams for your post, I will take that into mind.
