    I have a PR3 website, and a person I want to trade it with also has a PR3 website. When we exchange links, does it really matter WHERE I put it on a site, as long as I put it?

    .. What if put my link on example.com/123/123/123/123.html

    But PAGE isn't linked anywhere on my site, so unless you know the right .HTML page to go onto, you'll never find it? Is it still effective? In a sense that I have have 50, 100, 600 links from other sites (all traded) on one page w/ out being worried about putting them on my main page?

    Home Page:
    I think it's OK as long as the page is spider-able. I've had links on a php page that's populated from a database and it sucked huge: the links were invisible from outside. I've also had hard text on a static page buried within directories and that one is fine as far as visibility goes.

    But there isn't any consensus on this as far as I can tell. Some people say PR doesn't matter at all anymore, some don't care as long as their link is SOMEWHERE on the site, and others have cursing fits if it isn't in the exact place they want it. One guy cursed me out in email because his link wasn't on my homepage. I told him it's a freaking STORE. I SELL THINGS on the home page. He practically wanted his link in my header above the logo. But most people are fine with a general links page as long as there's a link to it from the home page and it can be spidered. I have the link to my Links in my footer and in a sidebox so it's not buried at all.

    So I think example.com/123/123/123/123.html should work fine.

    Create a page specifically for links and put it there. If they don't like it tough.

    I get link requests all the time but most are from shitty websites that they have gotten a lot of backlinks by requesting link trades. They usually try to do it on a 3-way system so the links don't look reciprocal from one site to the other.

    I don't like backlinks from irrelevant sites so I usually ignore the request.
