Reciprocal links depend on mutual understanding of web masters. It is a contract between two web pages which is related to each other in terms of theme and topic. You can say that it is an exchange of links for web pages on the understanding of web masters for their sites.
I have already mentioned in my previous post about three way links and way to get 3 way links. Here, I will write about reciprocal links and way of getting reciprocal links on my experience of link exchange.
What is Reciprocal Links?
Reciprocal links are two way links. Reciprocal links are known as “link exchange”, “links partner” and “two links” also. Site “A” adds a link on site “B” and Site “B” adds a link on site “A”, called reciprocal or two way links.
How To Get Reciprocal Or Two Links?
To Get Reciprocal links normally we follow the concept of link exchange. We send a request to the web master to add our links in returns of they get a link from our website.
Before sending a link exchange request, we fetch data from the search engines, directories, partner’s pages of other web sites or from references of web sites. To fetch or extract data we follow some searching ideas for shortcuts.
Forums are also way of getting reciprocal links after a discussion on link sections in the forums.
You can use Google talk, Yahoo or MSN massager to talk with web masters to exchange links on mutual understanding.
You can find out the data of reciprocal links and fill up form to link exchange.
What Should Care For Reciprocal Links?
If you are doing reciprocal link exchange then you should care about Page Rank.
Site should not be dead or only for link exchange.
Site should not be penalized from which you are getting links.
Site content should not be illegal or scrappy.
Site should be related to the theme.
Site’s outgoing links should not be from bad neighborhood.
Good numbers of index pages should be with the site.
Good number of link back should be with the site.
If you get links within content whether the page has not page rank, it will be beneficial for your site but content should be related to your theme.
Link should be with static web pages.
Links should be with different IPs.
Don’t exchange links in bulk whether it is reciprocal or one way.
How To Request for Reciprocal Links?
You can prepare a link exchange format and can send the request to the web masters for link exchange.
You can request a link exchange offers via forums or Google talk also as I mentioned above.
Importance of Reciprocal Links:
Many people think that reciprocal links have not importance because in returns we provide a link also from our web site and in this condition we don’t do anything extra for our website. But I think it has importance if you do the work smartly. It has great importance still to get higher ranking in search engines. Google avoid that reciprocal links which are not related to the theme.
Some Rules For Reciprocal or Two way Links:
If your site is dedicated to SEO, don’t give any external links with the anchor of SEO in returns in the conditions of reciprocal links.
Consider always with Good PR if you get links from resources pages.
Try to get links from content pages.
Don’t give higher Page Rank in return of lower.
Always do linking with theme related in the conditions of reciprocal.
Avoid reciprocal linking if the site has bad neighborhood outgoing links.
Out going links should not be more than 20 in the conditions of reciprocal linking on the page.
Reciprocal links are not much effective in getting page rank but it is more effective to get higher ranking in major search engines.
