If I have a link on a digital camera site, it will point to my digital cameras, and of course the site I exchanged with would have their link on a respective page. Is this old news or just too much work for either partner? to me it would be better, any suggestions, ideas?
Let's say I have an article about digital photography on a web site, and at the end of the article I have external links to other sites about digital cameras, image manipulation and the like. These links will all be relevant to people reading the original article, and they are likely to be happy both with me for providing the links, and the links themselves.
It also depends if you are in it for the long haul. If you have a throwaway domain and just want to rank quicky disregard my comments ;)
Either way, as dirty as the "game" is, I would rather just junk all my links and not be a part of it. I have a hard enough time keeping my site updating with all of my products, I don't have time to worry about "link farms". Even if it won't help me in the search engines, some how the customers are still coming and with very little advertising to boot.
Thanks for everyone's input, let's keep this thread going with personal experiences, tips, hints, secrets, news and the like.
I try to make it easy to find them by placing prominent links on my other pages.
Now I'm considering going beyond that and starting related links lists on my main pages ending the list with a ... more resources link to the actual links page.
I haven't done that much yet,but it seems like it would be good for my visitors.
What I haven't sorted out yet is which links to place on the main pages. Maybe a rotating selection?
