Removing Link Exchange Links

November 17th, 2008 § 1 Comment

You enrolled in lots of link exchange schemes a long time ago. You’ve got about a dozen link pages on your website all linking out to random places, and your link profile is mainly low quality directories and keyword-rich-domain websites – you know the type, garden-furniture-sales-direct.com!

Google is discounting low quality links such as directories more and more, and they don’t like it when you link out to spammy websites. So what would happen if you removed all your link exchange pages?

No really…what? Leaving them there won’t hurt, but will removing them damage your rankings? Answers by pigeon post please!

    Well I don’t think they have any affect I managed to get a PR of 5 like this so not sure if it does have much of an impact.

    Linking to some site in Googles bad books does have an impact e.g. Patrick (from blogstorm) metioned linking to digital point forums affected his post ranking.

    Interesting to hear what other people have experienced.
