Comment on Reciprocal Link Schemes by SEO Dave.
The reason I created the SEO article was because I also thought it was a very good SEO question and should have resulted in a better set of responses.
It’s a shame as the newsgroup alt.internet.search-engines used to be the sort of place where both those new and old to SEO could get answers to SEO queries like yours, now there’s a lack of detailed SEO knowledge with most regular posters (some are very informative in other areas, just not SEO).
Was the reason I stopped posting their on a regular basis.
Anyway, glad I helped answer your SEO question.
