Are you attempting to become a
Google junior by adding thousands of links on your site?
Don’t bother, listen to these facts first.
So you want to get a Google top page rank and get your
site listed on the first page when an internet surfer
types in your keywords, right?!? Of course you do. At one
time it was extremely important to get as many sites
linking to you as possible, so the Google bots would
spider your site, see all of these sites linking to you,
and determine that your site must be of some importance
because so many others are linking to it.
That was then this is now! Google is certainly aware of
all of this tomfoolery and has reduced greatly, the
importance of huge amounts of reciprocal links to your
site, and has refined how they determine rankings and
importance of each site. Did you know that there are sites
with under 10 link backs that have a Google page rank of 7
or higher? It’s true. So instead of trying to fool the
search engines, try these simple rules.
99% of your reciprocal links should be relevant to the
content of your own site. Why not try to give something
that might be useful to your visitors and only allow links
that might benefit them. If you own a travel site, then
only allow links that might benefit travelers. Your
visitors will appreciate it, and it might even bring them
back, knowing that you not only offer your services, but
links to some other good services. The other 1% of links
should be reserved for sites with a Google page rank of 6
Categorize your reciprocal link index in detail. Don’t
make links hard to find, add categories and sub
categories. For instance: If you own the travel site, and
you are going to allow a section on rental cars, then you
might have a category structure as follows: Travel
Cars. Visitors want it made very easy for them, and the
more categories you add, the easier it is to navigate.
Limit your links per page to 20 or less. Do your visitors
and link partners a favor, do not have a page in your
reciprocal link directory with 100 links on it. Separate
these links into Page1, Page 2, Page 3, and so on. I
promise you, if you are my link partner, I would rather
have my link on your site as number 5 on page 3, than
number 87 on page 1. You also will not overwhelm your
visitor with the tedious task of the endless scroll down
to reach the bottom of the page. TIP: This also adds more
pages to your site, which Search Engines spiders look upon
favorably as more content on your site.
There are those sites that do not fit into any category of
your site that have that HUGE Google page rank, and you
want them to link with your site. Here is a tip for you to
keep those sites happy and get that top rank. In addition
to you’re regular links directory, create a separate
smaller reciprocal links directory. This may be only 1-3
pages in size. This directory must have a direct link from
your homepage (most top rank sites require that), and
title it something like “Special Link Partners” or
“Recommended Links”. Add only page ranks of say 6-7 or
higher to this special directory. This will ensure your
most important link partners that you will not be burying
their link way down inside your link directory.
