Hi there,

I have setup a links exchange on my website - I am a wedding photographer so only want to link to people who are in the wedding or social photography areas.

As I am sure you know google places GREAT weight on getting quality back links - these are links from sites within related fields such as other photography or other wedding sites.

The key to building good back link traffic is not to have a text link something like click here or www.davidpurslow.com (external link) - but its so much better to have a link saying something like - Worcestershire wedding photography - that way when people google worcestershire wedding photography your links come get you much higher up the list than just a www.davidpurslow.com (external link) link will.

I have set up a Links Exchange on my site, its linked off my main index.html page so google finds it easily - its not aimed at brides finding you but is aimed at building good quality highly valuable back link traffic.

If you would like to exchange links with me just go to http://www.davidpurslo​w.com/blog/link-exchange/ (external link)

and follow the instruction on there

Good luck - lets all build our pr's to get higher on google :-)

Oh when I started doing back links manually I was a PR1 site - in 3 months I have gone to a PR3 site ! - this stuff really works.

ciao

Last I knew google was down on people linking to each other and placed more weight on incoming links that you don't link back to.

Another reason to achieve quality backlinks is to entice visitors to come to your website. You can't build a website, and then expect that people will find your website without pointing the way. You will probably have to get the word out there about your site. One way webmasters got the word out used to be through reciprocal linking. Let's talk about reciprocal linking for a moment


There is much discussion in these last few months about reciprocal linking. In the last Google update, reciprocal links were one of the targets of the search engine's latest filter. Many webmasters had agreed upon reciprocal link exchanges, in order to boost their site's rankings with the sheer number of inbound links. In a link exchange, one webmaster places a link on his website that points to another webmasters website, and vice versa. Many of these links were simply not relevant, and were just discounted. So while the irrelevant inbound link was ignored, the outbound links still got counted, diluting the relevancy score of many websites. This caused a great many websites to drop off the Google map


We must be careful with our reciprocal links. There is a Google patent in the works that will deal with not only the popularity of the sites being linked to, but also how trustworthy a site is that you link to from your own website. This will mean that you could get into trouble with the search engine just for linking to a bad apple. We could begin preparing for this future change in the search engine algorithm by being choosier with which we exchange links right now. By choosing only relevant sites to link with, and sites that don't have tons of outbound links on a page, or sites that don't practice black-hat SEO techniques, we will have a better chance that our reciprocal links won't be discounted

***** Please note ********

I have now pulled the link exchange due to the number of nutters, spammers, Russian brides for sale, insurance, and Viagra sites just trying to link to it.

I have gone back to a more normal Links page - http://www.davidpurslo​w.com/weddingphotograp​hylinks.html (external link)

I will ONLY swap links with sites that have a good page rank, are either wedding photographers, wedding related or portrait photographers

Please visit the link above if interested

What makes you think that only the link exchanges improved your page rank and not just your quality of content?


There is no other place in Earth, like the local area of Thira (external link). I live and work here and always trying my best to capture images that are elegant and timeless. My Latest photography Sessions can be found here:http://www.studiokrist​o.com/photographer-blog/ (external link). I 'm also a fan of social networks. You can also explore my galleries and offers at my Photography on Facebook (external link)

I dont think I ever said that content has nothing to do with ranking, it does, but its a fact that quality back links from related sites have a big impact on ranking - slightly less important now but still there
