Backllinks to make Google happy

Hi X-perts,

I am just wondering if there is any sense to have link exchange with sites, where the reciprocal link page has a Google rank of zero?

What about another scenario if this pages has a rank of 2-3, but there are 200 links on the page?

Is there any point to have link exchange with ANY rank sites just related on the business theme?

Google has created a crazy bubble of backlinks ranking, which can only benefit companies selling some link manager-like software.

I have read some articles that zero-ranked backins may even lower your oun ranking. is it correct?

Thanks

Link exchanges are not good practise.

with respect to the 200 links, i would not place a link on that page. for one google reccommends no more than 100 links per page and the other factor is that the pr 2-3 will be shared between the 200+ links on the page. This will be a miniscule vote.

I go for related sites with minimal links out and high PR, this seems to do the tricks. have a look on www.text-link-ads.com this is where i get most of my links from, really cheap prices too. I have in the past paid £5000 for on link but on TLA i can pay $180 for a PR8 link.

Zero ranks wont help your rank at all, but if you look to the future of the page, when it starts getting ranked your already there.

Hope this helps

what about related blogs? I have analyzed many good ranked sites and a lot of them tend to have backlinks from blogs. Does Google treat blogs similar to other pages?

Thank you

you need lots and lots and lots and lots of links on blogs. they dont always account for much as most blogs have lost of link on them. Put them there though dont just aim for sites.

We need linking to seem as natural as possible.

Yes, i love it, it is one really good tool. Used to be Urchin.

Lots of features too many to mention and the results are true. Also you cant really argue for a free tool.
