    Soccer, somebody either didn't explain to you right, or you didn't hear what they are saying. In order for the Search Engines to Crawl, they have to go from 1 site to another. If they have never been to your site, then they most likely would not make it to a site outside of yours.

    So it is important to have links coming in, and going out.

    Yes Soccer, you want to be linking to sites within the same Category or Topic of what you are offering, but you don't have to link to your competitors, but link to news sites or wiki sites to help with relevancy.

    And please, call me me Moxie

    No, linking to other sites will not help you get crawled, it is getting other websites to link to you. By you linking out to other websites, it keeps the Search Engines spiders working and passing through your site, but I can't stress enough the importance of having sites link back to your site.

    There are several ways to get back links. As much as I would love to share everything I do, there is a price tag. But I do enjoy helping where I can.

    Directory submissions is one way to go, putting a signature together here after you have had 10 posts with a link back to your website. Advertising on other websites, emailing Webmasters, and various Link Exchange programs.

    Do a search on wikipedia if you like. You will have to start somewhere, but while you are looking for those links to come to you, be sure to build a site that makes people want to come back for more information first, as you do this, work on getting your link out there.

    No they are not. You have those who know what they are doing and those that don't. Linking out is not something you want to do unless you have a really good reason. And link exchanges are not the sort of "scheme" you want to get involved in.

    That depends on what you are trying to do. Links without targeted anchor text do not work if you are trying to improve your position in the search results (serps's). Similarly short term value links such as forum signatures and blog commenting are a waste of time.

    If on the other hand you are building traffic, social media sites and niche community forums are invaluable. But you do need to understand what you are trying to do.

    Back links generally mean one way (no reciprocal link) targeted back links we use to get ranked in Google. This is not the same as high PR paid links or common garden link spam.

    reciprocal links although not as effective as they used to be are still effective enough to warrant the time and effort to create the relationship with other websites.As long as we are very picky about one's site selection and keeping the content related to our site.

    Balderdash. Its all too easy to tritely say that link exchanges are less effective than they used to be. Fact is they are dangerous. You get judged by the sites you link out to. Are you telling me that you will happily dish out links to web masters who don't understand this? It's complete and utter nonsense and you are not doing anyone any favours by trying to perpetuate the practice.

    Back links are crucial in the SEO. If you really want to make success in the real SEO game, think "quality" not "quantity".

    re

    Most commercial search engines provide a mechanism to determine the number of backlinks they have recorded to a particular web page.Back Links are incoming links to a website or web page. In the search engine optimization (SEO) world, the number of backlinks is one indication of the popularity or importance of that website or page

    This is the theory that we all know, but the truth is that we still need the certain number of backlinks. One single high quality backlink won't do u much help!

    OK. I am thinking quality but what is a quality link and what is not? Quantity I am familiar with.

    Sorry for disagreement, but I think it at least can help u with the relevancy in Google's eyes.

    I mean, for example, my site is PR5, then I link exchange with a site which has a PR 4 but well built, so what do u think the deal??

    expecting for your reply!

    Webmasters chasing PR (and link exchanges) are going to pick up a nasty something along the way. It's inevitable. You link out to them and you will end up with no PR, penalised in the serp's and no business.

    Dumb isn't it?

    Besides the fact that some "experts" will swear blind that link exchanges have been seriously devauled, if you link out to a site that Google does not approve of, you will catch what they havegot. And its not PR. You link out, you are responsible. So think carefully about who is sitting behind that shiny white set of teeth.

    Nobody who is anybody does link exchanges anymore.

    Right, nowadays that kind of natural links just won't happen anymore!! So much manipulation involved in it.
