A link exchange is simple: you put a link to site A on your site B, and site A puts a link to your site B. How is pretty self-evident, and no there isn't a fee since in theory the link exchange is mutually beneficial.tiffhlove said:I have read about sharing or exchanging weblinks to boost your websites business; what is that and how do you exchange weblinks? Is there a fee involved?
Those are called relevent links The search engines in most part not all are relevancy search engines so like when I was looking for relevant link partners for my site I looked and T shirts since that is my product and I looked at Christian sites since that is my product specialty.Rodney said:For example, if you sell t-shirts about chocolate labs, then visitors to your website might like to know more about bringing up a chocolate lab, they might want to see chocolate lab pictures, they might want books on chocolate lab behavioral habits. Those are the links you might want to add to your site to help your website visitors get more information.
This is what I call the WRONG way of thinking of "link exchanges".The other thing is the link partners statis on the web. You can find that out easiley if you down load a free tool bar from google. You want sites to post a link to your site with a 3 or greater rank.
Pagerank is nice, but it isn't the end goal. Building a site that is useful for your visitors and gets them where they want to go is.I have a 3 but if a 1 wants to trade links I still do it if they are relavent to what I do. Who knows I may be helping them more than they are me now but what if they evetually become a 10 ranked site then they will definatley boost my site up.
Probably wouldn't increase your rank that much.So, if I linked my website say....on hundreds of forums, would this be considered ways of boosting my rank? Not to say that i would troll forums, and spam ads, but if I was a regular member, with a link in my sig.
