    Question Is exchanging links a dead art form?

    Is the practice of exchanging links dead? I see there have been no posts here for a long time. Thoughts?

    A link exchange is what the web is all about, that was what Tim Berners-Lee (inventor of the web) intended the web to be all about.

    A decentralised network of web pages that can choose who or what they link too.

    How does one go about exchanging links? Do you have to create a new page?

    Agreed. But I don't see a lot of discussion about it, hence my inquiry. Any suggestions on moving forward?

    To start with:

    What is link exchanging anyway?
    How does anybody benefit from it?

    I've only heard about it. Never did it. Never saw any reason to figure out what it meant. What am I missing by not participating in link exchanging?

    JMHO:

    You link to my dumb site and I'll link to your dumb site, and, just maybe, that'll make them more interesting, albeit still unrelated to each other, so we won't have to put a lot of effort into just making them interesting and of use to internet browsers in the first place.

    My practice is to place links within phrases of the text of a site that allows visitors to go there (via TARGET=_new so they can keep the page they're on) to see more about the topic at hand. Whether others do that to my site is of no consequence - the search engines should allow others to find whatever is of interest to them at any of my sites.

    Hi, Links are quite important for gaining popularity. Remember the world wide web is a big place!! There is a lot of competition out there, so in a nut shell this and other various methods all make up for a good strong site!!
