One of my sites is a beneficial news/weather type site, with not a lot of annoying advertising.
I'm always thinking of ideas to benefit others to link back to our site. something like
"Link back to us and we'll ..... "
But that's about as far as I get.
thought about making a seperate links page, where all their links will appear as long as they link to our home page.. but that's about it. I could already sense, this page will be sparse with links initially. So even that's kind of a turnoff.
then I think about EVEN the sites that do link back...will probably mostly be free sites with crappy PR. geocities, etc.
paying them to link back would prolly be a no-no according to google, so I guess that's off the table..
If only there were more beneficial options for them.
