    It is a trend that more and more companies are paying special attention on the optimization of website .
    Some person say do SEO ,some person say try to be friendly to search engine with good content ,some person say updata your site frequenly . In all ,all of these are to improve your site traffic.
    But recently ,I heard to increase the outter link also can greatly improve the PR value and thus impore the traffic.
    So may I ask how many people are using this way ? And usually where do you find the relate site to exchange the friend link with them?
    Any suggestion would be highly appreciated.

    Kind regards,
    Judeon

    Acrylicdisplay,

    All of things you mentioned (i.e. creating great content, optimizing a website, adding content frequently) are all a part of Search Engine Optimization. The "outer link" that you mentioned is known as backlink building and is an offsite tactic of SEO.

    It is important to remember that SEO is a practice that encompasses many different activities that may be highly technical and may also revolve around generation of creative content and even aspects of sales (i.e. approaching people in the real world to obtain backlinks). That brings me to an answer to your last question. Building backlinks to a site is one of the most important tasks that you can be performing and there are a lot of ways to go about this. If you are looking to reach out to people who run websites related or complementary to yours, this is a great way to build backlinks. You might try suggesting a collaborative content effort with them or simply asking to guest post on their site or even just place a link there.

    You can find lots of good backlink building ideas here,

    I am new here, so I could be off base, but I don't think just exchanging a "friend link" will get you very far. Blogrolls and reciprocal links in my understanding are pretty low value. Build one-way links through comments and guest posts, as TheContentAuthority mentioned. Doing so in a relevant niche will help build your authority and may even bring you traffic directly.

    otherwise, outlinks take away the juice of your PR......
