Link Development Forum

Newbie Question

I'm currently researching my list of potential link partners, and I was wondering where is the best place to position my link page.

Is it okay just to put it in root? I've heard that Google may consider this a "link farm" and ban the site.

What's the best way to proceed?

Thanks all! I just discovered this forum, what a fantastic resource!

Welcome to Webmaster World, rintrah!

Generally people put their Links page in a /links directory. Some people use a subdomain (subdomains are typically created as seperate sites).

Another way to look at it is to include links with your content (links should be related of course). It will defintely look better than a page full of links.

I'm not sure how the google "link farm penalty" works. But would suggest just building a links directory that works well for your site. When re-modeling my links page I read the pertinent threads at this forum - and researched other sites links pages for ideas to incorporate into my links page.

Personally I like the idea of a links directory as opposed to incorporating the links within your site. I feel that if you are going to incorporate links within your free flow context - there should be an index/directory which includes all the sites you link to. It keeps your site clean & easy to navigate.
