Benefits for others linking to our site ?

One of my sites is a beneficial news/weather type site, with not a lot of annoying advertising.

I'm always thinking of ideas to benefit others to link back to our site. something like

"Link back to us and we'll ..... "

But that's about as far as I get.

thought about making a seperate links page, where all their links will appear as long as they link to our home page.. but that's about it. I could already sense, this page will be sparse with links initially. So even that's kind of a turnoff.

then I think about EVEN the sites that do link back...will probably mostly be free sites with crappy PR. geocities, etc.

paying them to link back would prolly be a no-no according to google, so I guess that's off the table..

If only there were more beneficial options for them.

Rethink how you value a link. Read between the lines because that's all I can say on a public forum. Good luck.

I would just mention that if a site links out to other QUALITY sites they CAN be seen as an authority by google.

I've got a website that links out to the latest news article in my business sector daily. I do this every morning. Been doing it for the past 7 years (sounds time consuming right? its not because I use an editor based link publisher).

My outlinks are in the thousands and my inlinks might be a few hundred from high quality relevant sites. I rank in the top ten for all of my keywords.

No "bleeding" of pagerank or other issues here.

MB is right when he says you have to rethink how you value a link. Does it benefit the end user's experience? (thats right out of G'd guidelines). If so link out and be linked to.

If a quality low ranking site wants to link with you, get the link! Remember a new site with low metrics today is an established site with higher metrics tomorrow.

Develop the brand through the medium (Internet)

Sending traffic via links to any brand is and will always be acceptable.
