Reciprocal links - where to put them.

 3:30 pm on Feb 6, 2003 (gmt 0)

On which page do I have to put my reciprocal links? Or is that not of any importance.

Hi Jeffry

A lot of people put them in a directory called /links or /resources. That doesn't mean you have to though ;)

Put them where it makes sense. For example if you sell widgets and have 3 main categories like

  • Blue Widgets
  • Green Widges and
  • Red Widgets
You might want to make subdirectories of eash liek /red-widgets/suppliers/ and list people specializing in red widgets there...

Up to you, just put them where you feel it makes most sense to you.

Hi Nick,

Is the page, where I put them, going to get a higher PR?

No. Not unless you engineer it that way. A reciprocol links pages leeches PR out of you site but, this is not a as bad as it sounds. If you choose your partners well the links add value to your site. I'm dubious as the real benefits to be had but it's a matter for another thread ;)

Ok Nick. And do I have to link back to the page of the site where my link is on? Or just to their main page?

Ask them, most will want the homepage though...

As I understand it is not that important.

Thanks for your reply Nick.
