David Kutcher: Share it on Google+ or via the Google url shortener.
Tina Willis: Hi David Kutcher!! Thank you!! This is what I`ve been doing (G plus). I wasn`t sure it worked. How do you know this works? I know you know just curious bc I don`t totally understand. I`ve seen some competitors with long lists of links on weird pages. Do you know why? I thought this might be it.
Tina Willis: I don`t want to link bc I don`t want reciprocal links. Isn`t that right? Or am I missing something?
Michael Martinez: Tina Willis Reciprocal linking is only a problem when it`s systematic and scaled. Link farms went out of style over a decade ago. It`s okay to reciprocate for a non-SEO reason.
Tina Willis: Michael Martinez this is for an SEO reason.
Tina Willis: reason is for google to more quickly crawl links to our site.
Michael Martinez: Tina Willis Okay, to get it crawled (for SEO) is fine. I`m the guy whose research led to the creation of link farms. I swear to you on my parents` souls, what we are discussing will NOT violate search engine guidelines.
Tina Willis: Michael Martinez thank you and nice to meet you! But will it devalue the link? I`ve read this suggestion among SEOs I trust a lot. I just never understood this / always had this question.
Michael Martinez: Tina Willis 1 link, unless it`s coming from like the home page of Yahoo, isn`t going to matter much. Just create a useful link.
Tina Willis: Michael Martinez this will be way more than 1. over time anyway
Michael Martinez: Tina Willis Well, I`m not sure what to make of that, but let me put it this way. I have two domains, Xenite-dot-Org and SF-Fandom-dot-com; they interlink to each other thousands of times. Never had a complaint from a search engine. Take that for what it`s worth.
Simon Cartier: Yes, you can google website URL submit and ping, you don’t need it to own a page to have it crawled
