Link Development Forum

Why is that?
my posts removed

Why is it everytime I come here looking for someone to do reciprocal links with my messages get deleted? I don't want to just talk about it.

hello ztiets...
check out the forum charter.

Webmaster World tries to keep posts on topics that will benefit the widest number of our members. If you're asking for people to link specifically to your own site, that post will only be of use to the relatively small percentage of members who's sites would make good link partners for you. On the other hand, a general discussion about the best ways to recruit new linking partners for any site, will benefit almost all of our members.

Anything along the lines of "please link to mysite.com" or "please look at mysite.com" etc., is likely to be removed because of this, unless (in a few rare cases) the issue being demonstrated on the site is an issue that a LOT of our members might benefit from reading about (like a major browser incompatibility in the HTML code).

If you're interested in finding sites to exchange links with, your best bet is to use a search engine to find sites that have similar subjects or themes to your own site, and email each of their webmasters individually requesting a link exchange.

The forum charter [webmasterworld.com] (as bartek mentions :) ) is always a good place to find out what's considered 'good manners' for each of our specific fora... You'll find a link to each forum's charter at the top of the forum's front page, and at the bottom of the posting window.

I sent you a sticky mail earlier. You can see that at the top of the screen. Please let me know directly if you have any questions after reading that :)

I guess I should of read the charter first. Rules are rules so ok you got me. Sure, I was interested in getting others to put up links to my site but I also wanted to do the same. Why you can't do that here is beyond me in my own humble opinion. If this is the case does anyone know where to go to meet folks who are interested in exchanging links?

Still, that rule makes no sense as there is not really a great deal to talk about in this subject, it's just a matter of doing it. People shout "spam" while masking their efforts as "seo" . It's all about how to get to the top, any other talk is nonsense in my opinion.

To the person who sent me a private reply calling me a spammer.

I've met so many people who make only one website, submit it and just sit back and complain about how those people who bother to make more than one website (spammers), make all the money.

I make well over 30k a month, and if the price of that is being labelled a "spammer" than so be it. I'd rather be that than a single website owner who has to keep his day job because he does not want to make more than one website because that will make him a spammer.

Get with the program or get run over.
