LinkMetro Advanced membership - Good idea?

Hey,

Few questions

Just signed up for linkmetro advanced membership, is anybody a member?

Is it seen as spam by SE's to have the generated linkmetro directory?

If it is do you think it is better to have less links on your links page and links that are more directed to your own niche?

Will it effects your PR if there are too many outbound links on your link page?

Cheers :) ,
Wes

Hi Wes,

I am a member too but now I only exchange with relevant sites... just because the directory is for metro doesn't mean you can't use it for other things too. Any link exchange you do, just pop the site into your metro directory and that way you can always check to make sure they link back.

PR won't be affected no if you link to the right sites.

I'm in the same boat as Adrian.

I'm considering cancelling membership. The link directory is really handy, but I'm getting fewer and fewer links from there, just because of the way things are going at google. But if you just stick to relevant ones, you will be right.

Hey Sean,

Why, what do you mean by the way things are going at google?

Cheers

Reciprocal links are going to receive almost no value if the sites are unrelated. As of now, I'm not really sure how valuable they are.
