The one thing i now have come to hate is the web sites that do a 'link exchange' then take it off several days later!
Other way people get round having to link to your site is by not linking they're links page to the rest of the site or only linking to the links from one low key page such as the 'about us page'
I have also knowing high ranking sites to get loads of links.... then re-starting the links page from scratch! Saying to all who complain please just re submit.
And by doing this they leave lots of unaware people still linking to the site and at the same time getting more!
Maybe im just bitter that lots of my links are gone within a few months... i have to keep checking to see if they are still linking... If i donít i drop rankings... loose sales... and spending most of my time all because of these sites...
It takes all sorts of people to make this world. When i started my site i also got all kind of reciprocal link partners. I also got very good partners who gave me PR5 links in exchange for link at my PR0 link page. I would suggest that while exchanging links you should look at the relevence of link than PR. Think of a situation if there were no search engines and you would exchange links for traffic.Then you will think in different terms and aim for quality and relevent links. That may be slow process and Then you will find more dependable link partners.And you will get traffic from these links also.
get more links. don't put all eggs in one basket. So, if some bad guys are cheating you, you still get benefits from others.
To avoid being cheated by "de-link" after you link to them, I would suggest you to try some reciprocal link script like linkautomate, etc.. I am using linkautomate and think it is good as it allows me to set checking frequency. Then, if someone cheats me, it will take their site off immediately and sends an email to ask for relink. It saves me time.
also seek links in yahoo directory and dmoz. from experience, if you get links in these 2 directory. u at least get a PR4 or 5.
& one more, if anyone places their link directory in a very "invisible" place, I will never link to them. Not only because you gain no traffic, but also many of those link pages create search engine problems.
