Also make sure its crawlable. WC3 compliance helps.

|reduce the outbound links pr page to be less than 100 |
Hard to confirm this factor, although I will say that having more than 100 resource links is almost pointless from a visitor standpoint as most sites cannot point out more than 100 high quality related and relevant resources. (imho)
I webmaster for websites that have many more reciprocals than that - over 600-700 in fact, and they have been untouched by any of the last updates in the last year or so. However, they have been online for over 4-5 years and have many inbounds.¦
Perhaps we are talking about a threshold and ratio.

If you MUST do reciprocal linking, make sure they are RELEVANT and good neighbourhoods (or use the 'nofollow' on outbounds)

If you do recip linking and you put a nofollow in you will probably be not only booted by your "recip partner" but lose any thread of authority/respect you might have had from your traffic trading partners

yeah... so just skip the recips eh?

Nothing at all wrong with recips as a partnership offering your visitors choices and resources.
Lots wrong with it as a device to increase popularity.
It all comes down to intentions. Everything in moderation.

thegypsy - since the whole web is built(or at least where I came from years ago) on recips and traffic trading and Google has always been very receptive of recips, I think Ill stick with them - its made me a very nice living

...and if u have had a manual penalty imposed against
your site, forget about anything, because nothing will help...

- Be sure that all your pages have different titles and metatags

.. and cross your fingers. I've done all the above and waiting..

Maybe I'm wasting my time, but I like to refresh most of my content every one in awhile to keep it updated.

Google makes or breaks websites by deciding how much traffic publishers receive.
All these speculations about links seem to be irrelevant because one of our sites with a focus on more paid outbound than inbound links and only some limited written content is doing well whilst a clean and rich content site has vanished completely.
No dupe content, no frames had resulted in many No. 1 positions that are all gone since June 27.
It seems that the days of quality publishing are simply over now.
