Free link exchanges got my web site to the first page of Google
and link exchanges can do the same for any web site.
A couple of weeks ago one of my web sites, BarrysBeanies.com, was ranked number 34 on Google for one of my most essential keyword phrases "Beanie Babies."
I was determined to get my web site on the first page of Google
searches for the keyword phrase "Beanie Babies."
About that time I had been sent an email from Sean Burns,
SEO expert and the author of Rankings Revealed - How
to Get Your Site to the Top of Search Engines. The information
provided was exactly what I required to get back on the first page of
Google for the keyword phrase "Beanie Babies."
I learned from Sean that there are basically two options to get
a high rank on Google (or other search engines) for your web site keyword phrases.
Do free link exchanges with other web sites that have the same
theme as your web site. You can target any keyword phrase you
want to increase your rank with. This is important, the title text
link you exchange with other web sites or blogs should be the keyword
phrase you want to target.
What I also love about free link exchanges is that you can
target one web page (or website) for lots different keyword phrases. So once
you get the rank you want for one keyword phrase then you choose
a different keyword phrase to focus on and use this new keyword phrase
in the title text link that you now exchange with other web
It is also important to try and do all your free link exchanges
with web sites that have a high Google Page Rank.Try to get
link exchanges with sites with a PR3 or higher. Web sites with a
higher Page Rank are viewed by Google as being more important/relevent
and links to your web site from these high google page rank sites will help
you more than doing link exchanges with a site with a PR1 or PR2.
Here is a copy of the e-mail I give to other web site owners to
ask for free link exchanges with.
I wanted to see if you would like to do a free link exchange with me.
Many of the top search engines use reciprocal linking to rank
your web site/web pages. In order to have high ranking in google
you need links pointing at your website.
Here is my information:

Once I receive your info I will place it on my Links
Page and I'll e-mail the URL address where you'll be able

Optimize your web pages for keyword phrases. You will want to
target one keyword phrase per web page. If you have great
content and have targeted a keyword phrase then eventually
Google will crawl your web page and rank it higher.
You should really use both these options, but of the two I like
the free link exchanges best because I can quickly see the
progress I'm making.
Do free link exchanges actually work?
Well, as I stated above, my web site www.BarrysBeanies.com
was ranked number 33 for my most important keyword phrase,
I then started participating in free link exchanges. Prior to that time I
only had about 8 link exchanges on my web site with other
web sites. Now I have about 100 links and my rank on Google
for "Beanie Babies" is number 4.
So free link exchanges do work
ranking in the search engines is by far the most essential part to
overall Internet success if you have a web site. In factArticle Search,
it may be the most crucial thing you can learn how to do in
order to have a successful Internet business.
