Linking to same 10 sites in each page

Safe practice or dangerous?

Some sites offers copy and paste code to link to 10 sites at once. Great, you paste it in one your pages and get 10 links (possibly) good, back to you.

If that exchange is good for you due to traffic or whatever.

Can you paste the same code again in other pages of your site? That would be faster than get another new 10 link partners right? But is that acceptable to search engines specially major ones?

You could speed up a lot the process of getting link popularity this way, am I right?

Does that work?

I don't know what the dampening factor is regarding the limit of passing of PageRank and/or link pop from one site to another, but I've always assumed one exists.

10 links from a single domain does not equal 10 links from 10 different domains. I've always assumed the formula is 1st link = 100%, 2nd link = 50%, 3rd link = 25%, etc, so that there is a limit on how much link pop and PR can be passed between one domain and another.

If you only paste a few lines of JS no SE will even see the links, they're for traffic only.

Hence it is more than acceptable (at least for SEs).

Hi Dirkz

What do you mean? Who would use the JS, the website with the 10 outgoing links? I'm a bit confused.

Maybe I interpreted this wrong:

> Some sites offers copy and paste code ...

I thought silverbytes meant "code" like a few lines of JavaScript.

But I guess he meant "code" to be all the <a> tags etc. for the links?

I believe he was referring to simple html code.

1) Generally, the sites offering this will only link to 1 page of your site (i.e. homepage). If you place the links on other pages of your site, you most likely won't get links back.

2)You are going to be better off getting new links from different sites for your other pages as they will be from different domains which seems to have much more of an impact than more links from the same site(s).

3)Generally, the sites offering this seem to be somewhat *spammy* (note "generally" not always). While the links may still be worth something, you don't want to have a lot of connection with these as, if they get hammered, the penalty may find it's way to your site(s) as well.

Some sites offers copy and paste code to link to 10 sites at once.

Inevitably, unless there's a lot of randomness introduced, this is going to flag these sites as a network, and the scheme will backfire on them, and perhaps eventually on you too. My guess is their links back to you (if they all do link back) will end up not being worth much either, and it's going to start looking like you're part of this very contrived scheme.

Maybe one link into a bad neighborhood won't hurt you. In this case, you might be multiplying your risk by 10.
