- Learn the 5 Secrets of SEO
Let me guess your story.
You've paid a company a lot of money to have your site submitted to thousands of directories. You may have taken the time to list yourself in hundreds of search engines. You've tried increasing your PageRank, decreasing your outbound links, and buying incoming links from important sites.
You have (multiple) accounts with many of the social bookmarking sites and you've tried MySpace, Facebook, YouTube, Flickr, and a myriad of other social networking sites. You've tried to build up a network of blogs, Squidoo pages, and other websites in an effort to drive traffic to your site and to get your site higher in the search engine results page for that one vital keyword.
You've done all this to promote your site...and it's not working.
No one's clicking on your ads. You aren't selling as much of your affiliate products as the internet marketers told you that you would. Your sales conversions are abysmal. You just don't get enough traffic and the traffic that you do get doesn't stay on the site and doesn't do what you want it to do. You've poured so much time and energy into your site, but it seems like it's been an absolute waste.
- Fint Out Why You Can't Afford To Link Exchange
If you're actively trying to exchange links with other webmasters, you are wasting hundreds if not thousands of dollars. I'm going to lay it out for you in black and white and even let you experiment with your own numbers using the Link Exchange Cost Calculator.
A Quick Overview Of Exchanging Links
A link exchange, also called a link swap or a reciprocal link, is a simple concept from the early days of the web. Bob contacts Mary and offers to link to her website from his site if she will do the same in return. Voila, a link exchange!
The purpose of a link exchange used to be to send traffic from one site to another, but as search engines gained in popularity and usefulness, people discovered that the more links they had pointing to their site, the higher their site would rank in the search engines. Link exchanges multiplied, in some cases even morphing into link farms, pages with nothing but links pointing to other sites.
Of course, the search engines eventually caught on to this tactic. They began to add other factors into their ranking formula and over time, the power of a single backlink became diluted in comparison to what it once was. Links to your web pages are still a major part of getting them to rank well, but the effectiveness of the classic link exchange is dead.
Don't believe me? Let's put link exchanging to the test.
