    Unhappy Marketing via Link Exchange Website?

    Hi there,

    I have been using a FREE link exchange service called Link Metro to kickstart my link exchange page. I really like the service, since you have the opportunity to accept or decline linking to the other websites. I have a couple of issues that I have been tackling by myself and would like some input on them.

    First off, I typically check the PR rating of the website and will accept on those that:

    1. Have a PR4 or above, since mine is a PR5
    2. Can easily find the links page on the frontpage.
    3. Is relevant to my visitors.


    So this seem to be working, yet the links page itself rates at a PR0, even though the rest of the pages below the front page have a PR4.
    What could be causing this ranking descrepancy?

    And the other thing, I have been getting requests from overseas I think, such as from http://www.ringtones-games.co.uk/ , a ring-tone provider and the pharmacy sites, to link into them. Some of them have great PR ratings, like my site, yet I have noticed that thier links pages all look the exact same. It goes to a 'Partners' folder, which in turn has a category's listing. In it is a "Link Metro" category which is where my website link has been going. At first I thought they were all using the same type of program to generate thier link categories, and that is why they all looked alike. But I noticed that when I click on the Link Metro category, there is a menu that looks like below, with my link being on page 41, everytime!

    Are they using a Link Farm?
    And if not, then why is page 41 always the one my link is on?

    totally confused in San Diego......
