Reciprocal Linking has two main benefits:
Reciprocal listing is one of the best ways to increase the number of visitors to your
website - and best of all, it's free!
- Increases your visitors by getting your URL on web pages all over the internet
- Increases your visitors by getting you listed in a higher position on search engines
By getting your link displayed on other website's Link directories around the
world you are increasing the number of paths leading back to your websites, which in
turn will increase the number of visitors to your site.
A side affect of getting lots of links to your site is that you increase the chances of getting
your web page listed on one of the first few pages of search results returned by search engines.
This is because most search engines take into account the number of backlinks to your website
when deciding how to position your site.
If you are reading up on the subject of search engine positioning, you may be familiar with
the term "PR", or "Page Rank". Page Rank is a number between 1 and 10 that measures the
"importance" of a web page, measured by the number of incoming links to that page.

Many internet marketeers are obsessed by page rank and will only link to other web pages if
they have a high page rank. In addition to this many people may spend hours optimizing their
meta tags and keywords to try and ensure that they get a top position in Google, or some other
search engine. The problem with this is that the top search engines are changing their algorithms
all the time and it is almost impossible for most of us to keep up with this. If you concentrate
all your efforts on this you may find that you lose all your traffic from a particular search
engine as soon as they change their ranking algorithm.
My advice is to forget Page Rank and concentrate instead on building up a good set of reciprocal links.
Instead of focusing on the PageRank icon on your Google Toolbar, willing it to move
each day, why not focus your efforts on building up a good set of links and measure your success
by taking delight in the increased number of visitors to your website.
OK, now that we've got that covered it's time to start finding links! You can do this by
just by surfing the internet and looking for other pages that have a links directory,
following the links in each of the pages links directories as you go. If you find a site that
you like and you think that your visitors would be interested too, then you need to
submit a link request, either using the form provided on the webpage or by emailing the
webmasters for these sites to ask for a link.

Once you start getting a few link partners, keeping track of them all and continuously
updating your web pages with all the new links, whilst checking that your link is still
own their website can be quite a bit of work. I use some software called
