Reciprocal Links

Unread post by Saul » Tue Oct 09, 2018 10:04 pm

Just wanted to let you all know that Sasha is currently going through the forum checking that people linking out to their own websites are linking back to us.

As I mentioned before, links that go out to other sites from this forum but that don't have a link coming back have a negative impact on our search engine ratings. Google in particular always looks for reciprocal links and if it doesn't find any it will mark us down.

So if you receive a PM from Sasha about links you will know what it is about.

HyperText links to Sites that DON'T Link back to us, damage our ratings among the various search Engines.

THIS is a Hypertext Link: posting.php?mode=reply&f=1&t=11781
You can hover the mouse over it and <click> to open it in your Browser . . . .

THIS is the SAME link, but is NOT a HyperText Link: yamahamusicians.com/forum/posting.php?mode=reply&f=1&t=11781

You can still visit it, but you need to copy/paste it into the address line of your Browser . . . .

PLEASE do this when linking to external Sites. It helps to preserve our status in the "ratings" . . . .

@Saul - Might this be good to put in the Header of our Site, or <Site News>? (I can't do this . . . :wink: )

DO correct my terminology, if it is not right . . . :wink:

That is find Chris and very nicely demonstrated.

Some exceptions are:

YouTube links but preferably use the 'YouTube2' button you will see to the top right of the message window. Past your link, highlight it and then click that YouTube2 button. This should enable the video to appear in your post rather than as a link out of the forum. If in doubt though just post the link and I will sort it out later.

Links to sites like Ebay, Amazon etc. Obviously we are not going to get linkbacks from those big sites so they are fine.

Linking to other sites like ours. That's fine if they link back to us but if you can't confirm that just post the link as Chris outlined above because then you are still providing the info and we don't get penalised for no reciprocal link.
