Finding Links with High PageRank – SEO Tip Week 44

Written on November 2, 2007 – 4:00 pm | by Shell Harris |

Link exchanging has certainly lost favor and some SEO consultants don’t do link exchanges period. I am also of the mind that link exchanges don’t count for much, but I also know that link exchanges can be part of a SEO strategy. Two of our largest clients are still employing targeted link exchanges and are ranked highly for very competitive terms.

So, if we can all overlook the great swell of negativity for link swaps lets take a look at how to find good exchanges. There is an excellent tool from Page Rank Search Tool. If you visit this page you can type in your keyword and then a phrase with “exchange links” or “add links” and it will find the strongest ranking page with those terms. A real world example: “diamonds” exchange links

With some modifications, you can also use it for non-reciprocal link building and article placement. Be creative!

    This sounds like an extremely useful tool. Seriously thank you very much as I am against link exchanges or have heard nothing but bad things, but this tool sounds like it would help find a credible partner(s)

    I read somewhere that about 80% of SEO is still unpublished, but this blog tipping so much on SEO seems a completely different story! Good tips BTW, and yes, the tool does work!

    We publish what we do and it has worked for us. There are very few “secrets” to SEO and those things that are secrets are probably going to be frowned upon by the search engines, which is why they may be secrets. Wow, I confused myself.

    We disclose most of what we do and hopefully our readers will share as well.
