I have now had two very different people tell me against regular link reciprication and be in favor of uploading a clean full page for a similar minded site and recipricating by the other site carrying a full html page relating to the site I work on.

Swapping a page instead of only a link with an equal quality no spam site.

What are your views?

This has become relatively common over the past few years and some folks consider it one of the best ways to exchange links. Heck, there are companies that make it a specialty. Just be sure that you don't have to "force" the page in; try to make it look as natural as possible and not jarring to your site visitors. Also, be sure the body copy of the page is good and fits the style of your own writing.

Google is onto it, but there's no sign of it being downgraded yet, when the page is totally on topic.

Can someone elaborate on this? Is the concept to create a new page of content on your site, where the only outbound link(s) is to the site with which you've created the exchange? If so, I'm assuming the idea would be to exchange with sites where the proposed content would match the topic of your site as well as fit in with theirs (both sites' topics would have to naturally match to a degree).

Google is onto it

Google whining about something is <> Google being onto it :).

They can hardly start to devalue links embedded within a page full of ontopic content. This 'technique' has been working for years and will continue to work. Because it is exactly the kind of link that looks natural.

I'm not so sure I'd like the idea of a recip, but that's a seperate issue. The underlying idea of getting an inbound link from within ontopic content on an ontopic website is sound and will continue to be so.

Agree absolutely, however... :-)

I'd be a bit wary of having too many pages with outgoing links to a single source that wasn't obviously informational, might look a bit too similar to paid reviews to sleep easily at night.
