I'm about to email some high quality websites that pertain to my market niche, and I was wondering does it matter from which page they link me? Do they HAVE to link me from their index pages? Or can they simply link me from a Links page. Basically, does a link from links.shtml equal the same strength in Google SERPs and Yahoo SERPs as a link from index.shtml?

It'd be easier to get these webmasters to link me from their links page, instead of their homepages. Anyone know?

Imo, it doesn't matter.

Imo, yes it does matter.

I think links on a "links" page are ok but not the best, links with in content are better. I feel you get more benefit from this type of link.

You will also have more chance of better quality if any traffic.

Imh, It is easier to get on a links page than on a content / index page.

It does matter, the index page gives the highest transfer of PR, but!

When we talk links form quality sites it is often a matter of the art of the possible. If you are to succeed in getting the link, you must think hard about where the highest likelihood of the site owner placing his link to you is. The likelihood of the site owner linking to you from his index page is small, the likelihood of the site owner linking to you form a more specific page is higher though often not high.
Getting quality links is important and difficult. Do your homework well before contacting the site.

This should not be your main goal. Your main goal is to get links that will provide your website with traffic.

For ranking purposes you should aim to get "important" links people say this is measured by PR, I always go with how much traffic it would provide. Who needs Page Rank when you have traffic? :)

The OP didn't mention if he's talking about recips or one ways. I'm assuming one ways, because the way I rank it, almost no high quality site does reciprocal links. Perhpas your definition is different.

1: No high quality site is going to give you a link from their home page. Where are you finding these high quality sites that practice that? That doesn't happen enough, if at all, to be a consideration.

2:

I think links on a "links" page are ok but not the best...

If it's coming from a high quality site, it doesn't matter. The only thing important is that the HQ Site gives it to you, and best that it's a one way inbound. Reasonable people will take a link from a quality site no matter where they give it- even if it's a reciprocal. So the overriding criteria is if the site is High Quality or not. Everything else is pretty much a non-consideration. When we are talking about High Quality sites, it doesn't matter- I'll take a 120x60 banner if that's all they're handing out. A vote is a vote, except when it comes from a High Quality site, in which case I regard it as more important. Which is why I say, it doesn't matter. Just get it.

quality and location of the links are important.
try to get links from sites which have similar or opposite content.

Huh?

I am sure this makes perfect sense, but I am not getting it. Sounds like, "I only drink when I am alone or with someone."

An advertising company has purchased a spot on a very popular media site. They want to advertise our site using a text link.

However, the advertisements are not on the medias server they are on the advertising company's server. Does that make a difference?

Here's an idea.
Build 2 websites site A and site B
Request links to site A
In return offer them a link from site B

One way links...

>>>Request links to site A

That is called three way [webmasterworld.com] or triangular linking [webmasterworld.com] and has been discussed [webmasterworld.com] so you may want to check out the info on them.

I can see the problems as mentioned in the posts you highlighted. However site A does not link to site B and vice versa. Therefore no triangle.

There is no way that Google could read this the wrong way.

>>>owever site A does not link to site B and vice versa. Therefore no triangle

The triangle could be closed or open. Site A and B are owned by you and site C is the site you are attempting to gain a link from. C links to A, B links to C. Do that enough times and you can see a clear pattern visually (draw A and B and then surround them with 100 C's drawing the lines from C's to A and B to C's and you'll notice what I mean by easily "seeing" it), much less mechnically. Unless your doing it with much more complexity and organization. I'm not saying the engines kill someone for triangular or three way links - I'm just saying they likely can see them, in their basic form in mass, for what they are.

I can see your angle - if you excuse the pun.
Never tried this and don't believe I would ever have the time to do it. Just throwing ideas around.
