    Hello,

    I have primarily been making Norwegian affiliate websites the last years, but I´m ready to make some international ones as well. However, I can´t see that there are anyone looking for link exchange anymore? Is it totally outdated?

    PS: I am talking about A-B-C-linking, not "A-B" linking that Google penalize heavily.

    I suggest you to create skype group for link exchange, ABC linking also risky, try to barter

    There's not much point in link exchanging in my opinion, not for ranking purposes at least. One way links are much better and will give you more juice.

    Bribing/buying links is better for SEO. Exchanges are pretty outdated.

    Of course one way links are better, you're the only one who gets the link juice. Whereas when you exchange the juice is not as strong.

    (I hate saying juice)

    I get it now. I think I´ll try to buy some links and create some web 2.0s instead and see how it can help my site.

    Thanks for the answers.

    This day, choose oneway backlinks only.
