How Not To Do It

Here are some examples of some of the rubbish I have to sift through on a daily basis. Honestly, I’m not a jerk, it’s just that sometimes I find it hard to see how difficult it is to follow some simple rules.

Three Way Linking

Hi, I visited your site and liked the contents so would like to propose link exchange partnership with your site. As you probably already know, link popularity is a major factor in getting a site noticed by the search engines and getting traffic onto that site. An additional link would help both you and us to get more traffic. If you accept this link exchange partnership then place the under mentioned details in your link page: Please add my link only at pr 2+.

Here is my detail:

URL: http://www.XXXXXXXX.com/football-betting Title: football betting

I will add your link at – http://www.XXXXXXXXXXXXfriends.org/ or http://www.XXXXXXXXXschools.org/partners.html

This is a classic three way link scenario. We do not do three way links. This guy hadn’t even put my link on his site yet and still had the cheek to demand that his link be put on a page of mine with 2+ PageRank. I simply refered this numpty to the linking rules above.

Hidden Links Pages

I visited your site at http://stonecoldbluff.co.uk/ and would like to exchange links. In good faith I have already added your link to my reciprocal links directory at http://www.XXXXXXXX/resources/Online-Poker.html. Could you please add my link to your website?

Thank you

Unfortunately this was my reply:

Thanks for adding our link to your site, however I could not see how visitors can get to our link from your home page. Please can you show me the links visitors would have to click to navigate from your home page in order to find our link.

To date I have heard nothing back. While everything else was right about this link exchange, this guy kept his link page well hidden. We will only link to web sites whose links page can be found easily from their home page.

Poor Content / Unrelated content

Hello Webmaster,

I am a link manager and run a Casino related site which has good content for your users.As you know 3 way linking is beneficial for getting higher rank in google so I am interested in 3 way text linking with you.If you are interested Plz add my details to your site and drop me an email with your details.The link page you will provide us must be relevant and have PR 1 atleast.We are prefering UK hosted sites only.

According to the PR you provide your link will be added on the following page:

http://www.XXXXXXXXXXX.com/ (PR 4) (Content Rich) (Gambling Related)

And/Or

http://www.XXXXXXXXXXX.com/recreation/casino/ (PR2) (Content Rich)

And/Or

http://www.XXXXXXXXXXXXX.com/slot-machines.html (PR 1) (Content Rich) (Gambling Related)

And/Or

http://www.XXXXXXXXXXXXXX.net/casino_bonuses.htm (Content Rich) (Gambling Related)

The details of my site are as follows:

Anchor:Progessive Bingo Halls URL : http://www.XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.com/progressive-bingo.html

If you own any other sites for which you are willing to trade links, please let me know. I’ll be happy to add your listings to my site immediately. I’ll be glad to hear anything you have to offer.

Again, this is three-way linking but on a grander scale. None of the sites are even poker related. Needless to say we did not participate with linking to these guys.
