Now here's the thing - i genuinely like a couple of the sites that link to me and see them as a good resource for my readers. BUt if i link back to them will i lose the benefit of the one way inbound link?
I suppose if there has been a significant time lag between the links then it may not be counted as the typical reciprocal.
So what do i do? Think of my readers or the search engines?
Link back to the sites but block the link from the engines.
Yeah, when everyone does this, then what?
Build your site for your visitors. The job of the SE's is to find the good sites and serve them up. This is what the SE's will continue to strive to do. Therefore, the answer to longe term SEO is to build a good site.
How important is a 2 way link? I have been adding sites to my useful links section solely baseed on what I consider valuable resources for my visitors....but this is a one way link only....
however - according to GOD(google) the who idea is to link to and be linked from good content and somehow if this content is valuble to your readers - somthign is telling me that google has taken this into its algorythm - i wouldnt worry about outbound links to content "qualty content" valuble to your readers.... this might just be the type of stuff that most people over look in marketing - that eludes them - in what search engines can possibly be interested in... - i really think if this site is useful to your readers - it cant really devalue ur content. and site as whole it might not increase your rankings but i cant see it really hurting u - it would be very interesting to try it and see......
