    hey roomies!


    my question;

    If I create a sort of "resource" or "links" page, with about 20 or 30 links from different sites in my niche

    and just put a brief write-up/synopsis about each site, does that translate
    to any kind of juice in any way shape or form?

    I never hear anyone doing this, and that may just be because it's plain
    "dumb"! and a worthless tactic..but I don't know

    BUT I wanted to ask you guys and find out!

    your feedback is very much appreciated!
    (this particular niche happens to be dating, but was curious in general about the question)

    you dont get juice from outgoing links. the juice comes from incoming links from other websites related to your niche.

    If you create a resource page, with a bunch of websites in that page, all the link juice just goes to those websites.

    doesn't google give me even a little something for that?

    like when you post a link to a no follow blog or directory, I understand google gives you some "undetermined amount of juice", certainly not as much as if it were a follow situation, but doesn't this work in a similar way?

    I have seen people here say that you get some kind of bonus for forward links - in particular links to authority sites

    I am not sure how much this helps but it makes sense - it will suggest that your content is relevant to the content you are pointing to, and it looks good to point to an authority site rather than 100 spam sites

    Personally I would have one or two choice links, but I wouldn't go so far as making a page of links in the hope of getting extra juice from it.

    A resource page full of outgoing links is going too far.

    However, I make a point of always linking to some authority sites when I construct my support networks.

    In each article, I just remember to put in an honest looking link somewhere, maybe 2.

    I very often link to pdf documents hosted on .edu and .gov domains.


    I used to have the juice-only mentality that any other link on a support page could only drain away precious link juice.

    Now, though, I am much more of the opinion that Google applies trust filters more heavily than it used to.

    By which I mean, if you site looks like a supporting slave site just linking to 1 other commercial site and no authority outlinks, it looks suspect.

    That's why I always make sure to link out to sources which a spammer would never be expected to link to.

    Helps to bring things under the radar.

    thank you very much for the explain

    sometimes my brain (a large round beachball sized object, with about a marbles and a "half" in it) doesn't catch things right away

    so what you are saying is look at that "links resource" page like any other?

    when(done in the proper manner) I have content and a link, that's normal, but google (I assume) sees a page (like a "links" page)with just a dozen outgoing links and thinks it's??? hmmm???

    of no value at all?

    in other words google doesn't say "Ahhhh that's a links page! we need to treat it differently"

    you know what! dummy me!! of course google (again I assume) doesn't care how you "characterize" the page (resource links) it simply looks and says "I don't see any content of any value" NOW I assume that's how google looks at it now that I think about it?

    any thoughts?

    AND on the other hand, it is still a page full of links to "authority sites" in my field, albiet "just links I copied and pasted there" they are still links though, yes?? so nothing?

    Hali~!:)

    is this for opt-in? if so, creating a resource page is a definite boost to the subscription of a user.

    What are you trying to do - rank your site high, or use it to send trusted support links to other, more important money sites?

    In both cases, just 1 or maybe 2 authority out-links links per article is more than good enough.

    If you do this, you are getting 1 step closer to Google thinking of your site as quality. This will help, whether you want to rank well, or send trusted links to other sites you own.

    There is no need for a resource page - although, I must admit, I don't think it would do any harm.

    Normal websites have them - not many spam websites do, though.

    Also be careful who you link to.

    Avoid linking to other commercial sites. Behave like a blogger or research writer - link out to information sources, not shopping sites.

    thank you very much mic,

    sorry for the confusing questions, but if I do a search and find these docs(like I did and I was bale to see various serps with them)

    so you're suggesting creating some type of content on my site, and placing a link to one of those pdfs?

    In this case it's a dating "one page" of content site with a few links to the date advertiser (referring to the "homepage" rather than the "resource links" page. It's this "resource links" page which is where I want to place these links , or perhaps "write soome new content" on the "resource links" page(s) and a couple of gov or edu links as you mention, hope that wasn't too confusing!)

    so maybe be those type of links would be better if I place them on one of my other domains, instead of "dating"

    I know gov and ed have greater relevance to G, but wasn't sure if that was a fair way to approach it, as I mentioned?

    thanks mic

    Hali~!:) (your help is really really valuable!)
