As i'm sure you are aware, reciprocal links are good for SEO.

If you have a website and would like to trade links to help each other out then let me know. Your website would be linked from this page:

http://www.teacophotog​raphy.com.au/links.htm​l (external link)

If you wanna then please put a link to www.teacophotography.c​om.au (external link) and let me know by PM, email, or a reply to this thread. I'll then add a link to your website in return.

Also, if you want me to put a few words about your service (like the others on my links page) then please let me know what you would like written.

You can also have a graphic as per the other links on my page. Please supply to peter@teacophotography​.com.au (external link) at 167 high x 200 wide if you want this added.

you can add blurb such as 'For photoshoots in Perth i recommend booking with Teaco Photography' or something a little more creative if you can :).

What if instead of a links page, you created a blog post and put the link to that? Obviously you'd want to contextualise it with some content. And you could request they do the same for you at some point.

But isn't that the same thing? It's still a link exchange and the google will pick it up sooner or later. I don't think there's much harm in doing it a few times, but once you get lots of links, google will spank you.

Alternatively just go to other photographer's websites where they have a blog that allows you to leave your website as a clickable link on your comment name and make a comment.

Free links from other photographer's sites.

Not necessarily. If there site is set up correctly, the links you leave in comments have a "nofollow" rule applied to them, which keeps from Google spidering the link and thus prevents any loss of "link juice" from the site.

If the objective is to gain an seo advantage of linking building, is there any reason to create comments and a backlink with blogs that have nofollow rules applied? I mean if no link juice is gained, what's the point?

The problem is, without "nofollow" links on your comment templates (wordpress, etc...) then those comments can contain links to others websites, which DO share your site's precious link juice, so in essence you're hurting your own site's SEO by not having "nofollow".

I don't mind linking to other sites, but I'm not going to give carte blanche ability for anyone out there, to use my own site to further their website's SEO by not having "nofollow".

As for link building, it's not going to do you any good as far Google is concerned, if you plaster your web address all over tons of others websites, so yes... what's the point?

The best way to increase SEO, is to get legitimate links from reputable sites that you trust. Any other sites, can eventually fall/change into a spam site, which links to your website... and thus puts your site on blacklists and damages your credibility with Google.
