    Link Popularity and Your Add URL Page
    by Bob Hampton

    With all the buzz going on about the importance of a site's link popularity, the look and feel of your Add URL page (or whatever you have named your add URL page) has taken on an increased importance as well.

    On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate the "look and feel" of your site's Add URL page?

    During the research phase of creating the "Link Popularity IQ" Web site, I encountered Add URL pages that spanned the full spectrum of a possible look and feel rating of 1 to 10.

    The "Look" of Your Add URL Page

    When you are ready to design (or re-design) your site's Add URL page, make sure that the quality of that design is as high as possible. Possible link partners visiting your site's Add URL page may very well make a snap judgement of the quality of your site based solely on the look of that one page.

    Make sure you pay just as much attention to the look of your Add URL page as you do to what you consider the most important pages on your site.

    The "Feel" of Your Add URL Page

    The feel of your Add URL page is just as important as its look. If the "how to link to us" instructions on your Add URL page are not 100% clear and easy to understand, your possible link partner may simply go on to the next site on her list of possible partners.

    Take the time to create an Add URL page that contains easy-to-understand instructions on how the link exchange process should be done.

    An Example of a Quality Add URL Page

    I hope you won't think it pretentious of me for saying that the Add URL page on my site is an example of an Add URL page that deserves a look and feel rating of 8 to 10.

    I invite you to visit my Add URL page and judge for yourself:

    A Free Add URL Page Template

    If you like the look and feel of my Add URL page, you are invited to check out my free Add URL Page Template:

    Please feel free to use the template as an aid when designing or re-designing your own Add URL page.


    You should strive for a look and feel rating of between 8 and 10 for your own Add URL page. If you can attain a look and feel rating of 10 for your own Add URL page, so much the better. The extra time you take now to do it right will pay off handsomely in the future for the link popularity of your site.
