    I was reading a topic on these forums and some1 suggested that you can request other webmasters/website owners for a back-link to your site/hubs.
    I think no one links back to you on requests.

    I want to know if this opinion of mine is correct or not.

    So please tell me that if someone asks you to link back to his website/hub from your website/hub, would you give him a backlink?

    It depends. But definitely not blunt "no".

      Depends on what? The amount of money the requesting person pays you or the PR of the page he puts your link on(reciprocal linking)???

        I have never paid for a reciprocal link. Although I don't think there's anything bad for it. I'm just cheap.

    I have exchanged links many times. As I said it's easier on my personal site, than at HP because I don't have a limit on outlinks. But I am picky about who I link to and who links to me. I carefully look at the site to make sure that they don't use any black hat seo methods. And that they have unique, high quality content.

      That and sort of what Nelle says, too. I am not that strict though and more look at if I like the page or not smile

    Reciprocal links between sites don't mean much these days.

    One way links to your site, from a high PR site that covers a similar topic to you give the best results.

      That is the gold standard and to be treasured if received.

      But I disagree that the others are meaningless. I've had sites take off after reciprocal links were gathered. There are quality reciprocal links, and trash links. A G does seem to be able intuit the distinction pretty accurately.

        How would you rate recip links from reciprocal directories(quality ones)???

          Nelle Hoxieposted 14 years agoin reply to this

          I never use reciprocal directories. I think they send a message to google that you can't get anything better. And Google might think it's a "bad neighborhood." Don't know that for sure though.

          But since I never use them, I can't tell you how they work.

      You are rite, although what Nelle says about reciprocal links is quite right too.

      But I think I didn't make myself clear while writing the intro of this thread. I was talking about ONE WAY links and not reciprocal links.

    I respect the artistic work of C.S. Alexis and I wrote an article about her over on the examiner.  Yes I linked to her hubs, but these are great and I wanted more people to find them.

    I certainly will if they have good material relevant to my hubs.

    Me and excelsus traded links once, when he did an article on anime.

    His article was the perfect complement to mine, because he wrote a hub detailing something I just aflored on my hub.

    So I included is link, directing visitors to visit his hub if they want moreinformations on that topic and he was ind enough to also add links in that same hub to my work.

    So, a "blunt no" is of course not the answer, but I don't link just because. It has te be a quality article with good information that relates to my topics.

    I think everyone gains from that, especially being hub-to-hub links, as it's all the same site.

    I have no problem linking to another site, if their content adds value to my content.

    I agree with secondreview. If the link is relevant and makes interesting reading for my reader, sure, link away.

      I agree with Cashmere and Secondreview - if it improves my hub then I have nothing against it.

    I have been known to include other hubber's RSS if they have helped or inspired me in that particular hub,

    Depends on the quality and the relevancy of topic with my hubs.

  15. fritteritter profile image85
    fritteritterposted 14 years ago

    I'm more likely to provide links to other hubs without being asked than to link to a specific hub upon request. If the content is relevant and in some way enriching to one of my hubs or web sites I would definitely consider adding the link, but chances are I've already gone scouting for and found the links I want to add by the time someone would request a link.

    When there are a good amount of hubs on a particular topic related to my hub, I post an RSS module with the search results to reward either the hottest or the newest hubs automatically. If there are not many hubs or if it is likely that a hub containing the keyword might discuss a different topic, I would not include RSS for that topic (although you can do pretty well to restrict search results for RSS with the Advanced Search feature).
