Triangular and Quadrangular Linking Schemes
Is one way linking more valuable or less valuable then link exchanging

For example
Webmaster 1 owns
Site A
Site B

Webmaster 2 owns
Site C
Site D

Site A links to Site C
Site B links to Site D
Site C links to Site B
Site D links to Site A

Assuming the index pages are all of equal PR would it be more valuable to do this or to directly exchange links.

It will show up as a little "cluster" either way, so I don't think it makes any difference.

One way linking is less effort. Less typing to do.

Play with touchgraph and you'll get a feel for site clusters. I'd really like to see a touchgraph merged with Yahoo site explorer data expanded out three or four linking nodes, now that would be illuminating.

I remember wondering at the time if there was more to Gs' tribute to Gaston Julia than met the eye... ;-)

no. it is not more or less valuable. they are the same, as far as the value of the effect of the link on the website in the SERPs.

However, one-way links are a lot more expensive to obtain and to retain. Thus, dollar for dollar, direct reciprocal link exchange has the best value for your dollar in that you can get a lot more recips that you can get one-ways for the same amount of money.

I will probably be attacked for stating the above by SEOs (some really big names out there perpetuate the myth that one-ways are more valuable than recips) who find it too difficult to manage and make money from reciprocal links, when they can simply buy one-way links for their clients and get a cut of that spend every month. One-ways are a lot less work for the SEO and a lot more money.
