    Reciprocal link: Two-way backlinks, where you link to a site and get them to link back to you. Not recommended in the current SEO context, unless you know what you are doing.

    Link juice: The "power" of a backlink, depending on the authority of the site where it's found. Diminished effect when "nofollow" is used.

    Link juice is a term in SEO that means to power of any link passed to the site. These links may be from external or internal sources. The amount of links help search engines find and index your content. The quality of link juice is more important than the quantity.

    Reciprocal links are the link exchange between two websites. It provides a hyperlink within their own website to each other's web site. For example, to provide readers a quick access to related sites. These type of links show partnership between two sites.

    Reciprocal link – Mutual link between two webmasters to ensure mutual traffic. Often, the webmasters submit their sites to reciprocal link exchange directories to achieve rankings in search engines. But, it does not work any longer.

    Link juice – It means how powerful a certain link (within a site or from one website to another). If a link from a well-known website, which is trusted by the search engines will pass more link juice. In particular, a link from a site is do-follow, and then it will pass link juice.
