Links has always been one of my weak points. My link page contains 6 sites and has not been updated in a couple of years. I just been busy with other things, and I have always ranked near the top for my favorite keywords.
Lately, I have noticed that my competitors are really concentrating on obtaining links, and im getting a little worried that they may leap frog me. I think its time to boost my site from PR 5 to PR6, and maybe someday 7.
Here's my Plan, Tell me if it is flawed.
First I will take all the links for the leader in the industry. They have over 10,000 links.
I will then weed out anything below PR 4.
I will then update my link page with PR 4,5 & 6 webpages which is on topic, and is not a direct competitor. I figure if I link first on good faith, I will have the upper hand.
I will then send them an email saying we have linked to their site, because it contains relevent content blah blah blah, and then ask for a recepricating link.
After 30 days, if they do not link back, I will explain the benefits, (ie check your log and see all the links from us).
After 60 days I will give a 10 day notice that I will remove the link, if no recepicating link is given.
I will wait another 15 days and drop the link from the ungratefull company.
Do you think this will work, or is their a better method to have better success in geting links.
One final thing. Is there a software packages that will rank your competitors links and sort by PR?
