I’ve always liked the idea of swapping links with other bloggers but have always steered away from it because I thought that those huge blogrolls were so unbecoming. The obvious solution was to have my own link directory which is only possible because I host my own blogs. I decided to go with Reciprocal Links Pro for functionality and ease of use. If you want to add your blog click here or use the link above my blogroll. If you can’t find a category that is suitable for your blog just leave me a comment with the details and I will get right to it.
There are certain other benefits from having Reciprocal Links Pro (RLP) as my links directory;
- It will create permanent one way links to this blog. I say one way because RLP is actually hosted on another domain
- This will have a flow on effect of increasing my search engine rankings
- It is completely automated so I don’t have to worry about adding links and also checks to make sure the link is active before listing the link in it’s database.
- The automated link checking means that I never have to worry if someone removes a link to the blog as RLP uses CRON, a time-based scheduling service, to check that all my links are still in place on my link partners blogs or websites. It will even email with the results of missing links and the offending sites will also receive an email of the situation.
- It will automatically disable links that fail the specified number checks and will then delete it if action is not taken to rectify the situation.
The list goes on and on but these are the ones that I find of most value.
