Hi Nicole,

You can try linkpartners.com but you would not find any good link exchange sites these days. This is because link exchanges do not work as well as they used to. Search engines look at relevance now so you would get more link juice with a site in the same niche linking back to you and you linking to a site that has content relevant to yours.

Hope that helps. Have a good day!

Hello Nicole

I just want to jump in quick to explain why a link exchange or (reciprocal link) is of basically no value anymore.

Since Google did the Panda and Penguin updates, reciprocal links are worth nearly nothing. This is because Google can now identify many things that show that a link was created un-naturally. In an attempt to give Google users a better search experience, it gives much more strenght to links that appear natural without manipulation.

A link exchange is clearly a un-natural link and will be of no benefit to your rankings. Building these links is a waste of time in my opiniion.

Take a look at this article about post penguin link building for some more in-depth information about link building.

We do not recommend link exchanges. It dilutes the effect of the backlinks and can have negative impact on websites. See http://www.google.com/support/webmaster ... swer=66356

Hi Nicole,

Link exchanges are no longer recommended as what others above also said. Besides the fact that these link building techniques are no longer valid when it comes to ranking to Google, they also post threat to getting your website flagged as spam since Google considers link exchange as "unnatural" way of backlinking.

I hope that helps!

I myself don't use link exchanges because I don't know where they are coming from. So I get all my own and know I won't have any trouble with Google in the future.

A Link exchange is an extremely effective search engine optimization technique (SEO) that has been used since the beginning of the internet. Google started determining the most popular websites on the internet as ”Authority Sites” based on the number of websites linking back to them.
thanks you all for sharing good information ,

Don't even waste your time with link exchanges. You may end up destroying your site's rankings rather than any boost.

THANK YOU ESOLUTIONS!!!

I have been trying to get people to forget about even thinking about link exchanges.

Reciprocal linking has NOT been a good ranking strategy for many years and even then the links were of little value.

It's very simple, LINK EXCHANGES ARE NOT GOOD!!!!

OK i've calmed down now.

Have a wonderful day.
Never Give Up!!!
