We are happy that you would like to learn about link exchanges.
On this page you will learn about what it is, how it works, and how it benefits you if you have your own website.
You know, link popularity in very important when it comes to helping each other rank higher in search engines. That's why we offer to trade links with our fellow webmasters. We are trying to build our websites popularity and the best way to do that is to find other websites that would like to do it as well. When websites trade links with each other, you are then known as "link partners". Here's a list of all the other websites that are our link partners.
This is how it works:
The concept is that you agree to display links for other web sites, and they agree to display links for your web site. This is a great way to increase traffic. You can search out individual websites (just like this one that your on now) and trade links. OR you can search out Link Exchange Sites that are strictly set up to do link exchanges. We will list a few of them here so you can go visit them and see what they look like and read about how they work.

1) A solid link popularity score improves your search
results/rankings at engines like Google.
2) It is also the only way to get into engines like
Teoma/Jeeves. (You cannot free-submit to Teoma/
Jeeves. Their spiders must find you, and they
do that through following in-bound links.)
SiteSell Value Exchange - SiteSell has this to say about exchanging links............ "You need links. Not just any links, but high-quality, relevant ones. Why? " "Because, increasingly, Search Engines are using links (and other "off-page criteria") to help decide how relevant your site is for your most important keywords." "But not just any old link will do... the more relevant and higher in value, the better." "That's why we call this the SiteSell Value Exchange (SVE) -- your eye must always be on value, and on value-for-value exchanges only." "The SVE is a unique service that encourages and facilitates the exchanging of valuable business-and-traffic-building connections between high quality, similarly-themed sites..........."
PlainLinks.com is a link exchange network that provides the ability for web sites to advertise each other. The concept is that you agree to display links for other web sites, and they agree to display links for your web site. This is a great way to increase traffic, which is what your learning about on this page.
Link Exchange Software:
Question:"I don't have time to surf the web for websites that are willing to exchange links in order to raise my link popularity so I can rank higher in search engines." "Is there any other options?"
Yes - If you don't have the time to do it yourself then you can pay for a software program to do it for you. Usually you pay a monthly fee in order to be a part of the program. This would be something absolutely necessary in order to get your site on its feet if you don't have the time to do it manually yourself.
We found a program that we feel is really good for beginners to try. It's good because you don't have to be an expert at html and if you have any trouble at all installing it, they will do it for you. We can vouch for that too because they installed it for us and have been great at answering any questions that we have had too. Like I said, it's Great for beginners! You pay through PayPal, a payment processor, join the program and their system does it all for you. We joined this program ourselves and not only does it get your links out there but it also has other revenues for income for your site as well.
A really great unexpected bennifit!!

Shared Link Traffic -
If you have a marketing budget set up then here is a nice resource to check into. If you do not have a marketing budget yet, it's only a matter of time before you will. We do the free link exchange resources as well but as our own website grew, we started running out of time to go and exchange links with sites on a daily bases. Once your website gets to the point where your time is limited because your working on your site all the time answering emails or writing newsletters/ezines, articles, or just plain designing more and more pages.... then you would want to check into link programs that will assist you at getting your link out without you manually doing it yourself all the time. It does $ cost a monthly fee to use these types of programs but it is inexpensive and we feel valuable in getting our links out there. At the time we joined.... we paid for the year and got 2 months FREE! It averaged out to less than $5.00 a month! This is what we choose to do ourselves but you can pay monthly if you want too. It automatically updates so your never afraid of missing your payment. You can cancel at any time too. This is not a program that you have to be afraid of.
Now some information on the software:
Shared Link Traffic is a special software package designed to help boost your web traffic, link popularity, rank enhancement and a revenue builder all rolled into one easy to use system. It is completely automated so once installed, there is nothing more required on your part. Let us explain a little bit about how this all works...
One of the best ways to increase these things is to have other web sites link to your site. With most link exchange programs, you have to contact each webmaster by email, request that they add your link to their site and in return you will add theirs. Most will not even take the time to reply to your email, much less add your link. Our system is completely automated.
When a new member joins SLT, their link is added to our site, a script is then activated on EVERY members site and the new link is added to their page as well! This is an actual html page on each website that is embedded with YOUR LINK!
When a new member joins, ALL pages on ALL members websites are ALL automatically updated! Click Link Below.
