As it now seems that Google is depreciating the value to reciprocal links between sites, we should now consider how to make a reciprical link "look" like a oneway.

Options seem to be:

Robots file to disallow your links page to be spidered

Use javascript to cloak the links

Use cgi "tracking" to make it harder for spiders to follow the links

Meta tag in links page to prevent spidering/following

...providing you prevent Google from seeing your own outbound links page(s) - then all inbounds should start to look like one-way links.

A tad naughty as it is not fair on the site linking to you of course!

Just because something is devalued doesn't make it a penalty. IMHO it isn't worth doing to link partners just *in case* there may be a devaluing.

I don`t see any penalty from having links pointing in at a site, even if the sites are not relevant. I can show an example of a company that I know bought hundreds if not thousands of links from a major link broker network and they are scoring just fine on Google. If you want their URL just sticky me.

I think this is just not right in the view of mutual benefits for link exchange partnership.

But.... Howabout www.domain. com and directory.domain. com are from different ips?

Any webmaster with half a brain will catch any of these tricks (some instantaneously, others after a minute of looking around) so you won't need to worry about hiding those recip links because your partners will can you one by one as they figure it out.

As Marcia said, penalization and devaluation are two different things.

Here's an idea - rather than trying to trick other webmasters, either don't use recip linking and focus your efforts on other types of links - or only recip link when it makes *sense* regardless of the engine algos.

That's exactly right. Focus on other types of links, and only do recips with related sites that offer great content that you do not... period. The key is one-way links, and you can get them by paying for them or by writing articles and offering them to other sites in return for leaving links to your site that you embed in the article in place. That works very well!
