what is reciprocal link?:shifty:
Two way link. Site A links to Site B and Site B links to Site A also.
Lower value in terms of SEO than one way links.
A reciprocal link is a mutual link between two objects, commonly between two websites to ensure mutual traffic. Example: Alice and Bob have websites. If Bob's website links to Alice's website, and Alice's website links to Bob's website, the websites are reciprocally linked. Website owners often submit their sites to reciprocal link exchange directories, in order to achieve higher rankings in the search engines. Reciprocal linking between websites is an important part of the search engine optimization process because Google uses link popularity algorithms (defined as the number of links that led to a particular page and the anchor text of the link) to rank websites for relevancy.
if you know english you must know the meaning of "reciprocal "
Two websites are mutually exchanging their information and links with each other which is commonly known as Reciprocal Linking...
That kind of links in not recommended for SEO
i think it's a exchange of links between two sites, which may increase your PR or vice versa
Its an exchange of links between two websites with a mutual understanding.
Google devaluated the reciprocal links. So now a days reciprocal links have no value.
how can you say that it has no value now?
i think it's good source of traffic and backlinks for your site if you
link exchange in a high PR and high traffic relevant site...
I wouldn't say they have no value at all. Just a significantly lower value than one way links. Anchor text in reciprocal links can still be a useful tool for an optimiser.
Nevertheless I don't use link exchanges and would only have a reciprocal link if the linking site content was highly relevant to my own.
Reciprocals links are still good for backlinks but, you can also lose your valuable visitors.
That's a very good point. Any outgoing link has the potential to lose you page views and even result in bounces if it sits on a popular landing page.
The value of any outgoing link should be balanced against the risk of losing the visitor comletely.
I think it would not happen provided that you will not exchange links to those direct competitors..
Please explain the above sentence....
Maybe he's saying that you don't have to link right to your competitors because they might end up winning the competition...
Seems to me that placing a link to a competitors website would be the pinnacle of stupidity. Why anyone would want to do that I don't know.
I consider that is more better the 3-way link exchanges as reciprocal exchange!
I agree with yoohee..
Link exchange still has a value.. you can get traffic to your website with link exchange on related sites
