An you know what Skier? It only gets better..If you have a good site, that number should slowing keep going up. That is what I love about good link exchanges-FREE traffic.

The other thousand of links will help you to boost your page ranking with SE like google and thus increasing the visitors from searche engine! Look like they play a very important role too. Remember, remember ...
