4 years ago, my linking was sweet, perfect, easy in a crazy way - but not now. The first version of my website got a disgusting amount of links, those links are now all gone, actually they went 2 years back, and now, well, now getting links is a bitch of a tough thing these days. Doesnt matter what my site looks like, what it does - getting businesses/sites to swap is just nearly impossible, so much so I'm considering removing my link swap webpage (its devalued by Google anyway), what with, websites charging for links/adverts, link page depth, unfavourable link swap tactics etc, its just not worth the large effort for small rewards. This is something I noticed over the last few years, and its real! People just dont want to swap as much as they did, and my theory is money! the web has simply changed a lot, and all thats left is the desperate link chasers with no money and crap websites, and I wont link with those types anyway. Swapping links is old, maybe thats the problem, the way its done is old, and the low traffic/ROI involved just isnt worth the time it takes to add a link to my site anymore. One ways, hmmm - dont hold much hope of getting many of those as its too valuable a web space for free. Now I do the odd one here and there, but wont rely on it as my other methods are superior. So its bye bye links and thanks for the memories!
