    Default New link website... Free Links Direct!!!

    Hey everyone,

    Hope this doesn't come across as an advert, but I wanted to let everyone know about a new site I launched this evening. It's titled Free Links Direct. The idea behind it is simple... to provide free, high-quality one-way RELEVANT links at a gradual pace to everyone that participates. With my Casino Dawgs website I was getting a little annoyed by manual link exchanges... not only is it a LOT of work, but it's also not easy to get sites to link back. Some people are cool and link right away with no problem! Others just dno't link back or never respond to emails. Anyway... rambling (sorry), I made this other site to make the job easier!

    So, I would like to invite everyone here to check it out and sign up if you wish. I think the concept is pretty good and effective. So, all you need to do is select the Casino / Gambling category and follow the instructions. It's an easier way to do linking and provides one-way relevant links (which is great for google and such). It's a brand new site, so it's actually the best time to get in on it. It works on a weighted system so the earlier you get in the more links you'll get! Please let me know what you think! Thanks!!!

    The site certainly looks good.

    Can you give a little more information on how it works and the process, etc?

    Thanks for the feedback. I spent a lot of time trying to get the design "just-right" in terms of looking nice but yet being effective in the marketing aspect. I think I should probably add something such as "How it Works" to the list since I've had more than a few people ask for more information on the system.

    Here's a quick synopsis of the system:
    All of the major search engines (google, yahoo, etc) weight in backlinks as a factor in determining the placement of your webstie in their search engine results. The more backlinks you have, the higher ranking you will have. Link exchanges can be difficult because of the time involved AND they are not weighted as heavy in the search engine algorithims as one-way links. The Free Links Direct service provides one-way links that are RELEVANT to your market (which is very important).

    Here's how it works:
    You sign up for an account with Free Links Direct by choosing a category (in this case Casinos / Gambling). On the second step of the process some HTML code is generated that contains links to other sites in the same category as the one you selected. Now, you paste that code in your website (minimum at homepage, but there can be exceptions) and our system verifys the links are in place. Complete the registration and your website is now a partner. The next site that signs up will link to your site (thus creating a one-way link).

    Our system uses an algorithim to determine which sites to include next in the links (so things are fair) and over time you'll potentially recieve hundreds of one-way links pointing to your site! You don't have to manage anything or do anything. You sit back and as the partner list grows, so will the one-way links to your site. Right now the site has been up for less than a week and I've recieved 16 sign-ups in various categories. Not a bad start IMO. If it works out and I reach my goal of 50 sign-ups a month then that will be 600 sites in one year... which is a decent number. My goal would then be to double that each year (600 this year, plus 1200 the next year, etc). So, who knows... maybe in a couple years you could have a couple thousand one-way links pointing to your sites. That's the idea anyway.

    Oh, and we have a software robot that crawls the partner sites a couple times a wekk to ensure they do NOT remove the links to other partner sites. If they do they are given a warning to replace the links. If they do not comply after three attempts to locate the links, our system bans their site. An email is sent to any partners that link to them with a new site to link to. Unfortunatly, that's the only possibility of any manual work on the partner side (and I believe that will not happen much at all).

    Ok. Sorry about the long post. Thanks everyone!

    Sorry for being dense, but is this a pyramid? How else can one get hundreds of incoming links for only a handful of outgoing?

    I don't think many people here are going to give out homepage links unless there is some kind of ability to check on the sites linking in through your system. Does the system provide a list of the sites that have the incoming links?

    Does it check for nofollow tags or other methods of cheating?

    Don't get me wrong, I'm interested, but there are just some things I'd like to know before giving up home page links.

    Thanks for the reply and the input. Hopefully I can answer your questions adequetly enough. The site is still new and I am very open to making mod to it. I spent the time to develop and design it on my own... and I'm sure there are some things I've overlooked.

    I don't really think this is like a pyramid scheme. It never crossed my mind as one. Basically there will never be more than 5 websites that another website will link out to. By signing up early there are less websties to link to (since there are obviously not the signups yet in that category). Now, on sign up your link is added. To determine how often you website appears in the generated HTML I built an algorithim that takes in account your weighting (based on date added, number of pages linking) and the number of websites you are currently circulated in. I try to keep things as fair as possible so links will grow at a steady rate for EVERY site. Sure, sites that get in early will have somewhat of an advantage in the long run over new sign-ups... but that sorta makes sense to me. Rewards should be greatest to those who get in early. Defintiely does not work like a pyramid though.

    For checking links, I have a reporting system that users can use to check on what websites they are circulated in (it's a circulation report). There is also a report that shows which sites you should be pointing to.

    Uhm... I didnt think about the NOFOLLOW thing when I did the robot, so thanks for mentioning it. I plan on doing many more mods to the bot in the next few weeks, and I thnk that will be tops on my list. I've also been manually reviewing sites to make sure the bot is working as it should and it's actually been very effective so far.

    Ok. Hope that helps. I know this system may not be for everyone, but the more I think about it the more I think it can work if I get enough people signed up and keep categories sectioned well enough (yet not TOO dilluted). At least, I haven't found any major downfalls to it just yet. I think it beats manual link exchanging (which is labor intensive) and offers some nice possibilities. If someone knows of anything I am missing, please let me know!!! Thanks.
