    Getting Links To Your Site - Reciprocal Link Requests...

    (Page 6 of 9 )

    Reciprocal Link Requests:

    This is a tedious task but well worth the effort. I like to set aside 30 minutes per day to shoot off a few reciprocal link requests. Basically you are going to ask a site in the same or similar industry to yours for a link. Now this sounds strange but fear not, any competitor that is ranking in a top position has traded links with competing sites as they know the value in doing this.

    For example if you have a site about Ferraris you could trade links with a site that specializes in Porsche, or motor parts, or racing information – you get the idea.

    The best way to do reciprocal links is known as a three way link request. To do this you need to have at least 2 sites. You ask a Webmaster to link to your Site A and in return you will link to them from your Site B. So your link structure will look something like this:

    You can also link to one of the Webmasters other sites if you do not have 2 sites. For example they will link to you from their Site A and you will in turn link to their Site B.

    If you do not have 2 sites start of by using the standard reciprocal link where a webmaster links to you and you link to them. I highly recommend building an additional site however as this will increase your “1 Way Links”.
