I just want to add since posting that I having now subscribed to Majestic and working backwards so to speak as in poorest quality first, I am noticing 100's, literally of listings on link exchange pages on very poor hotel, finance and travel websites. I can only presume these were added with their intention of a higher ranking website helping their own site, the old addage "link to more authorititive sites", will help your own rankings, as these pages look very old circa 2006 onwards as some are date stamped.
Therefore I am now going to work through these which will no doubt take me weeks. But awaiting further advice.
