Reciprocal Review Carousel - Link Building

A new review has been posted by my friend ShopiaGurl at: Reciprocal Review Carousel - Life is just around the corner.. about my blog.

Link Exchanging is important because most of the search engines use the number of links that point to your site, (called "Back Links"), to determine how popular your site is.

Link popularity is the number external sites that point or link to your site. It is used as part of an algorithm to determine where your site will come up when a search is requested i.e. Search Engine Ranking. The higher your search engine ranking the more traffic you will receive.

I understand this strategy is importantant on my review a few month ago and posted at Blog Reaction exchange. Linking has become more and more important, I Hope you will joint and returned the favor (link Back. Let's get more traffic together.

— copy and paste the Reciprocal Review Carousel and instructions below this line —

Reciprocal Review Carousel idea is based on few simple and yet effective link-building and blogging techniques I have learned:

Build value of the blog by creating a link from within content.

Provide a value to community by doing a review on blog you personally like.

Link to YOUR blog has exact anchor text you want and helps you boost Google Rankings.

No more then 30 outbound links from any page to prevent penalties for link farming.

Viral effect of the link – as more bloggers participate, link to your blog with YOUR anchor text, coming from quality content post will spread.

Here is How to participate:
· Copy the entire text between the specified lines.
· Create a post on your site and put at least one paragraph explaining how you joined the Reciprocal Review Carousel.
· Paste the text you copied into your post.
· Remove the Bottom Review and At the Top add your own review with a link to a site reviewed, at least 2 sentences about the site and a note – Reviewed by: Your Anchor Text. Link your anchor text to your site.

Here is an example:

Only God Keeps me Going...

    Is a blog about inspiration, motivation, love and short story about life. My blog said: "We cannot depend on people to make us happy, only GOD in His Wisdom to make me happy and to meet my needs. When a need arises in my life, I have to trust GOD to supply according to HIS riches." I want to make others happy especially my son, my daughter and my beloved Wife, to help and give back to others what God has endowed in me. My blog is my expression and being reflected to our life.
