Link Exhanges - Gaining Link Popularity
Link Exchanges also known as "Reciprocal Links" are an arrangement made by two webmasters to agree to add each others link on their website. Most link exchanges are done through a text link, but they can also be done through banners. With banners being pretty much ignored on the Internet today, it is best to stick to a text link.
Webmasters will participate in this form of cross promotion for the benefits of gaining link popularity with search engines and getting a significant increase in traffic to their website.
Your first step should be concentrating on having a quality website before you start a link exchange program.
Develop a professional looking website with solid content and navigation links on each page, making it easy to navigate through.
Check for any misspellings, broken sentences or non-working links.
Add a links page (reciprocal links, resource page, recommended sites, etc.) to your website for your link partners. It is best to have a page with a table of contents breaking down your link exchanges into categories. As you develop new partners, list them by separating them into the appropriate categories on your pages.
Make sure that your main links (table of contents) page can be accessed from all of your pages on your website (if appropriate). It is best to have this link on more than just your home page. Do not try to hide the link by burying it somewhere in your website. A good rule of thumb is, your main links page should be plainly visible and can be accessed from most any page within two (2) clicks.
The above two paragraphs makes it easy for the viewer to find the right resource, plus your site will be looked at more favorable by webmasters for a link exchange.
Once your site is set up for a link exchange program, you can go to any major search engine to search for websites that you want to exchange links with. Make sure to only use keywords that are revelent to your site.
Take the time to look over each of the sites of interest, only choose websites that are targeted to your site and one that you would recommend to your viewers.
When you have located some quality sites, look for the contact information to the Webmaster and send them a personalized email. Keep in mind not all webmasters will be willing to exchange links, so it is not necessary to keep sending them emails. If a Webmaster is interested in exchanging links with you, they will reply to your message.
Once you have formed an agreement with another Webmaster for a link exchange, follow through with your commitment by keeping their link on your site. If you should need to make changes to the location of their link, notify them of the change. Communication is the best tool to build trust.
Finally, develop a system to track and keep records on file of your link exchange partners. This can easily be done in a excel spreadsheet.
You will want to keep records of:
Keeping records is an important step to your link campaigns. You can have first hand information to all your link partners, allowing you on occasion to check the active status of each partner.

Linking is Queen
If content is king, then linking is the queen that shares his throne. We have all heard about adding content to your site to give the search engines fodder to consume. But the secret to luring the search engines is the links to your site. Today's search engines look very carefully and critically at who is linking to you, and what it is that they are saying about you. A link from a leader in your industry carries a lot of weight and means that your site is important. Two links from industry leaders means your site is even more important. 100 links from random web sites, from industries you are not even related with, means almost nothing. Thus, getting links is only the start; the important thing is getting good links from quality web sites.
How to Increase Link Popularity
Link Popularity refers to the number of links coming from other web sites to your web site (also called inbound links). The competition between search engines and webmasters has led the search engines to find new ways to measure the importance of a site. Google has been responsible for introducing link popularity as an important aspect in its algorithms. For instance, if Google reads your site and sees many inbound links from related web sites it interprets each link as a "vote" that your site is good and as a result gives you a boost in your ranking.
