I'm looking for a way to streamline the reciprocal linking process with a product called "Dynamic Link Promoter". It seems ok but I was wondering if anyone else had a good or bad opinion of it and why? Is there anything else like it that I should look at?

Hi Hutch,

The best advice for any link development process is to stay away from anything with "dynamic" or "automatic" in the name or title. Most search engines don't like it and in the long run it just might hurt you.

I love these programs that don't give you all the information you need to make a decision. Just exactly what does this program do and how does it do it? From the one screen shot the main mangement part doesn't look much different from what most of us use: an Excel spreadsheet or simple database file.

Link Page Creator? How many links are you adding at one time?

Reciprocal Link Invitation? A fill-in-the-blanks Notepad file does fine, or even a simple php script.

Most opinions here will run from "use with care" to "stay away from at all costs." I'm in the latter boat.

I know what you mean about gimmicky product names. I'm trying out the "Dynamic Link Promoter" since they have an eval available. So far I like the link collection process with filtering (but I could probably do that just as well using the advanced search features on most se's).

The link page generator seems alright for slapping out some link pages quickly.

The link tracker is interesting to because it allows for making sure that your links are being posted.

I dunno... Are there some Excel or Access macros that do all this to?

When you say that most se's won't like it, is that because of abuse (intentional and unintentional) of the product?

Try a search on Google for allinurl:themeindex and look at the page rank of the results. These pages were created using another popular reciprocal link generator.

This "ThemeIndex" is from the infamous Zeus? (I did a little reading here at Webmaster World ;-) ) Is the bottom line here that if you automate processes using off-the-shelf products you're only ticking off se's?

I think I better go do some more reading...
