    Default Do you use 3 way links?

    It is generally considered as not very helpful to SEO using 3 way links because the search engines, especially google, suspect bogus links behind this link exchange mode. But what is the reality? What is the practice of us, the webmasters?

    I'm trying not to use 3 way link exchange. I receive a lot of such offers but they are all of a low quality. I consider them like SPAM. Sometimes I can do 3-way link exchanges but only with active sites, which are made for players not for 3-way link exchanges specially.

    I have problem to do exchange links. you think to do the 3 way links.

    the better solution is to do 4/5 way links. ( google is able to understand the 3 way links ).

    how ever if you have own 4 websites or more can be one perfect solution.

    I have one website.
    The site www.onlinexcasinos.com has all the information that an online casino gamer needs. Information on the best online casinos . Read the casino game rules, history and gaming strategy of all online casino game. Read the software and payment option review. Online flash casino.

    It all depends on the quality of the sites involved in the exchange. I have done a few 3 way link exchanges in my time .

    I'm not longer doing this kind of swap.
    Generally the webmaster has a low quality site or a cloudy directory where your link will be added.
    Of course you have to host his REAL site in your domain.

    I find this very cheap.

    Casino City does very few link exchanges.

    We have directory sites where we link to lots of other sites (for example, www.CasinoVendors.com has over 10,000 industry suppliers, and we link to all of their websites).

    The only place right now where we actually exchange links is on the bottom of the home page of online.casinocity.com and there we only exchange links with a handful of sites that we view as being major sites with good page rank where we have relationships with the site owners.

    i do not have a set rule that says yes i do 3 way exchanges, or no i will not do 3 way exchanges. to me is is best to handle every situation seperatly and decide what makes sense for the exchange at hand. this seems to work good and you might want to consider it.

    Yeah yeah....and what do you know about SEO?

    Just kidding...I agree with that - all link exchanges are not created equal. I think 3-way works if the quality is there personally, as do some recips. If you remember that it's all about the visitor, then in theory you should be sailing the SE waves pretty much as guided. You can't beat natural inbounds but in this industry, 't'aint easy eh!

    I am still learning this stuff day by day and lately I have been getting emails not even from teh company who wants to do the exchange but from their SEo rep asking for a three way...yet here's the thing they want me to link to the clients site and in exchange put my links in a link directory. From what I have been reading three ways are not the best solution , not only that but if my links are on their directory could they be discounted next update if that particular site is deemed a link farm? Sorry thought I would jump in and aska question with it since this is the type of link exchanges I am getting right now.

    I am trying to do more 3 way link exchanges... But they are a pain in the @$$! My current approach is either 3 way links or reciprocal links pointing to different internal pages from different internal pages.

    It is much harder to ensure you are getting links back. Too many webmasters are out to cheat you - giving you a low quality directory link in exchange for your unique link. And setting up the 3 way links is just harder to explain in some cases... Especially when you are talking about non-homepage links.

    A couple of years ago it was the best solution. Right now there are other better ways for linking. I use it only with very good websites and not for spam.

    if the 3 way exchange partner is going to offer you links from a directory like site, filled with links already then it is probably one best to avoid.

    Thanks I thought so. It seemed odd because for one of my links he was giving me three from different directories. He said they all had PR5 and a PR6 (my site is only a 2 right now) So I checked them out and the main directory was a 6 however the other two call them offsprings if you like were 0 PR...not to mention what I have been reading about the value of links coming from a standard directory I was hesitant to say the least.

    The better solution is this :

    1 to have one website that is updated almot with 5 new pages to week.

    2 to find other 3 websites that update the owner website almot with 5 new pages to day.

    to do one exchange of the links on these new pages every weeks ( to put the links in content of 5 new pages. ).

    soon

    My website'll update with about 5 pages to week. if one is avaible to do this, one can contact me.

    sorry for my english.
