Hi all, Just emailed WebmasterWorld, to suggest a new link swap dedicated forum whereby WBW members could exchange links with each other. I have seen things like this on the web elsewhere but usually they are filled with adverts from sites that just want to advertise not actually trade links. But with the quality of WebmasterWorld moderators I'm sure this wouldn't happen here.
With the amount of traffic WebmasterWorld gets this would be a really great resource for all members. Please let me know your thoughts on this. And say if you support it or not.
The only way i could see it possible is if the user had a post count higher than X they could post and it would have to be put in quewe to be aproved by a moderator before its seen.
Elite has made an advance I my idea which I think is great I myself have about 35-40 posts not sure but say if we set it to 50 or 60. Anyone that has that amount must have found value in WebmasterWorld and surely would not spam the board.
The another community which I know of which does this (and it's not the too obvisous ones either) and I have already linked with 5 or 6 sites as a result of their dedicated link swap forum. Email me if you want the URL.
I don't think there would be much to moderate, each post would simply include a URL, maybe gg Pagerank, description and other comments which would be useful. As I said in my original post the quality of WebmasterWorld mods is really high to I think they would be able to handle it. It would also provide the webmaster community with another reason to visit WebmasterWorld. If you have any other ideas please post here, and say if you support or not.
it wont and shoulnt happen, there are enough link swap forums etc about. For WW to lower to there level i belive would be a bad move. Also Google advises : DONTS - Participate in link exchanges for the sole purpose of increasing your ranking in search engines.
I think googleguy would be most upset if there was a link exchange program!
Sorry, but you won't find my URL posted in a public link exchange list. Nothing like trashing your own site by handing the search engines a listing of public enemies number one and having your URL on it.
