Then as your links grow your rankings will increase. More peopel will find your site through search engines such as google. Then if your content is of high quality you will find people linking to you due to your content being good.
Building link popularity is never going to be a quick task, but well worth it if you are prepared to stick at it.
Hope this helps.
There are no shortcuts when it comes to getting quality links. If there was, everybody would employ those methods and than links would count for nothing in improving your ranking.
I only know of the hard, slow way to get quality links. And it has really, really, really paid off for me.
>>If they're PR0
Not always a bad thing though, the site simply may not be registered by google yet but ram jammed full of good quality stuff. Lool for PR0 with a white bar as opposed to a grey one. A white one may signify a panalty of some sort to which it might be better not to link.
This sort of checking is more important if you are a new young site. Larger sites can link to "bad neighbours" in the odd case and weather out any negative affects as its impact is less on a relative scale. A smaller site may lose more in relative terms.
I did a little research on the Overture Search Term Suggestion tool and optimized those 7 pages for "Keyword - Link Exchange, Reciprocal Link Exchange Program - Keyword2"
This worked great except for one problem. I get a lot of "Junk" link requests from sites that are low PR, No PR, have 500 links on one page or employ some spam technique.
I probably only accept 1 in 4 links.
Another thing I did was negotiate special link exchanges with friendly webmasters with semi-theme related sites. In other words, "I will put your link on 6 of my PR4 pages and you put my link on 6 of your PR4 pages." Often, my link or his is the only outbound link on that page.
I picked up an extra 15 links this way.
Finding out why?
You will have to look at the page and see if it is obvious. Chnaces are though you may never find out. Could even be that the offending items have been move/changed.
Dont know for certain. I would "guess" that they are different if I have read it right. If in any doubt dont link or waith till the next update to see the real state of play.
