Link exchange, but search engines see it as a one way link?

    Is there anyway to do a link exchange with a site where your site will get the link juice, but Google won't see it as a link exchange but a one way link?
    Like what about some type of redirection?
    I was thinking about creating a links page, then just deleting it in a couple months, but I don't want to have any traces of an exchange, just pure one way link.

    Use a sub-domain to host the link page and provide a good backlink from the main domain's home page to the subdomain. You'll have to wait for a PR update to see the PR on that sub though.

    Only other way to do it is with a good cloaker to cloak your site's link page content from Google.

    I thought G saw subs as the same domain now? Much like a sub directory?

    Only other way I can think of is cloaking via PHP. Redirect the big G to one page but users to another.

    What if I block link page from search engines, could that work?

    Make it a 3 way. Offer them a link on site "a" and then have them link to site "b". This way both of you get the link juice.

    yeah, you can add the links page to your robots.txt file as a "disallow." Also add the meta robots to index and nofollow the page. The website you're trading links with will see the links when they manually check, but a robot won't see them. At least very easily anyway. Robots.txt file is just a "suggestion" to Googlebot. But it will obey the index nofollow directive. I haven't tried this but it seems like it should accomplish what you're trying.

    Yeah I was thinking that, but most of them are stupid, and probably wouldn't understand.

    Yeah that's what I'm thinking but the 'suggestion' part bothers me.

    The robots.txt probably won't work. Google will still see the two way link.

    Yeah, I think so too.
    I'm debating between creating a new site, like xxxxx directory. And I'll list their link nice and fancy, give them a few sentences, make it look really good and valuable. Which I'll link from my main site. Like xxxx directory, and prominently link it so it looks like it's getting a lot of exposure.
    Or what if I did that, and listed it in an iframe on my site, would that work? Do iframes still work? I could create a new domain, create a directory with basic code, matching my main site's theme, then when I add it via iframe, it would look flawless. Could that work?

    Or second thought is to just create them a great looking profile on my main site, and make it an image, maybe even give them their own seperate page, so it looks really valuable.
