Thanks to everyone for linking, writing comments and sending me private messages. When linking, please make sure that your site is up and running with an active link to linkbacklink. I always check before linking back.
You might have noticed that the number of links on this blog has been steadily growing. As the numbers of links increases, I will start monitoring the quality of (1) links posted on linkbacklink.blogspot.com and (2) the quality of reciprocal backlinks. Whenever a dead link or backlink is discovered, I will try to contact the owner of the site/blog in order to verify the situation. For the time-being, I will not remove any links that have been posted here so far, although I might remove the hyperlink. (3) I am also reducing the number of posts that open on the front page. For easier browsing, I am adding more internal links posted on the top-right side of the page (in the content section).
All three measures should help to ensure that this blog does not grow into a so-called "link-farm". With your help and support, the quality and value of links should remain high.
Recently, I have received a number of request to explain the basics of linking. Since there is plenty of information on the web, I will provide a very simple explanation with a couple of references for further reading.
1. HTML code
You need to copy and paste the following code into your page:
In a nutshell, this code tells your browser to follow the link that is contained within the quotation marks. A text that follows the quotation marks is displayed as a link: LinkBackLink

If you are a blogger user, or using any other similar service for that matter, posting links is much easier. All you need to do is to type in the text, select it and press the button that looks something like this .
You will be prompted to enter the URL address of the site that you would like to link to: e.g. http://linkbacklink.blogspot.com Make sure to check the link and confirm whether it´s active.
The first target of 1,000 visitors has been reached! Many thanks to all of you for visiting, commenting and linking! My next target is to reach the Alexa Traffic Rank of "top" one million. Right now, I am ranked by Alexa somewhere at 2.7 million. A long way to go..., but not too bad considering that this blog today is only one month old!
In order to share my progress with you, I have installed the Alexa traffic widget at the top of this blog. Please come back and help me reach the target! I will be happy to share with you any lessons or tips learned from this challenge.
Correct. I will promote you blog for free! You are only one step away from being included in my blog. If you look at SiteMeter at the bottom of the page, you will notice that the number of visitors has been steadily growing since the launch of this blog. Right now, the visitor count is approaching 1,000 with traffic predictions indicating further growth.
It´s a win-win situation. You link to me, irrespective of your blog´s popularity, and I will link back to you. Even if you just started and your blog is still young, you can link to me and I will link back. Please follow simple rules described in my first entry "About Link Back Link". Even if you decide not to link to me, I encourage you to post a comment.
Backlinking can substantially increase the traffic to your site. You don´t believe me? Try me. Send your link and I will publish it in this blog. Unless your site is already bathing in huge traffic volumes, any new link is likely to bring you additional visitors and additional search engine interest.
Having said that you should always keep in mind the quality of referred traffic. The bets are that a lot of traffic will be some sort of garbage: robots, random visitors who will spend a few seconds before moving on.
Why should you exchange links with this blog then? Three answers:
My readers are mostly bloggers, just like you. Get the attention of other bloggers in order to benefit from further links, comments etc.
Since I review all submissions, the quality of links will be monitored. This should help to ensure good standing with search engines.
Unlike the majority of similar services, linkbacklink is free!
The more you link, the more you get! Many thanks for your links and comments. If you would like to be included for free, please provide a link to http://linkbacklink.blogspot.com and email firstname.lastname@example.org with your blog details.
