Hello fellow members! Does link exchange alone to high PR blog/site can push you fast to higher rankings? I have a friend who has more backlinks get through link exchange than other off-page techniques and thus, it ranks well in search engines. So if this is it then, there will be no-hassle in getting higher rankings to search engines? Would you agree on this? Kindly share your thoughts.
No Link Exchange is not alone for High PR and search engine ranking.There are also other factors like quality content,good onpage,site speed,quality offpage (article submission,directory submission,blog posting,forum posting,bookmarking)
Through Link Exchange you can get high pr links in exchange of that same pr back links you required for that. So it is a typical way to getting hr pr links via link exchange. some another ways by which you get high pr links like from instant directories which accept three way link exchange, through blog comments, forums, from node etc..
Link exchange comes with risks, therefore it's not an off-page technique I would primarily use. Earlier in November, Google Panda busted this strategy, by refining detection of links posted in the sidebar or footer of pages, which are not relevant anymore.
Link exchanges are a useful part of a backlink strategy but should not be the only part of it.
When you exchange you are giving something away (i.e. a link from your site) so you should also seek to obtain one way links.
