    Hi

    I have seen some web directories offers free directory listing to their site, but they ask a link "Reciprocal" their. I don't know exactly what is this, but so far I understood this is a option of link sharing.

    My question is, does this work? And if I give them link on my site, how would my site looks like?

    I am actually confused.

    Thanks in advance.

    Regards,
    Jannatin

    No it doesn't. Don't bother to do this, it's a complete waste of time.

    Does it refer to the "link" at the bottom of the website?
    Exchanging links can help our website
    Let Google Spider Crawl to Our Website
    2 This is equivalent to "voting" each other, which can add points to the website.
    3 Someone comes to your website from the other party's link, which can increase popularity for your website.
    Of course, the choice of these links needs to be very careful.

    @zhonghuanwang - do not build reciprocal or exchange links. Google tells you not to do this in their SEO and webmaster guidelines

    Its totally waste.!! It will be best to use some other useful ways to build high DA backlinks. Moreover, google dont recommend these type of link sharing. It will be effect your website ranking negatively.

    The reply by fisicx (as given above) is perfect. I just like to add that if possible try to build high domain authority backlink by doing guest posting and blog submission. Do remember that they should be high DA websites.

    Or better off, don't do this. Google is looking for citations - self promotion by guest blogging isn't going to work. And DA isn't measured by Google, it's a made up Moz score.

    Link exchange will not bring proper results, besides, as a rule, they are closed by nofollow, and if they are open, this will clutter up the site in front of search engines. As a rule, such links are placed on individual pages or in the sidebar, but site users rarely click on them, especially if they are not targeted for them.

    That is, just links do not work. Unless these are useful links in blog posts.

    Hi,

    Please don't do this. As per current SEO trends directory submission is a time waste off-page activity. It is advisable to do guest posting and business profile creation in off-page SEO.

    No it can't. They just get ignored.
