Links (hyperlinks) are references within a web site that
allow a user to speedily go to another web page either within the same
web site or in a different web site. Web sites, particularly if
they carry information of similar value to users, often link to each
Importance of Links
You might think of a web site as a city. You also
may spend much of your personal time making this city, this web site,
the very best possible. However, how do we know if anyone will
ever visit or see it? The question we need to ask is "how many
roads" on the world wide web lead to our city, our web site? Each
link from a search engine, a directory, or another web site that
recommends you, is a road to your web site.
It is also true that some search engines will also see
your web site as being more important if there are many "roads" or
"links" to your website. Google at times has said that each of
these links after a fashion is a "vote" on the importance of your web
site. Now, to be sure, some links are more important than others -
just as in real life a super highway carries more traffic than a rural
dirt road. Bigger, higher traffic sites that link to you will
count more of course with the search engines, especially if they have a
"one-sided" link to you and do not require you to link back to them.
Reciprocal links may count a little less. And links to new sites
not yet established may count even less - at least until these sites
build themselves up and acquire traffic themselves. But all of
these possibilities are "roads" to your web site, and all can help bring
a degree of traffic to it.
Importance of Checking
If you do have a link agreement with another webmaster,
and they say that they are linking to you, how can you check?
Sometimes they will tell you the exact page that your link is on.
Sometimes they do not. And sometimes when the other webmasters
cleans and tidies up their site and puts links in alphabetical order and
less than 50 per page (a good idea) the page that your link is on may
have moved. How to find it? Particularly when some sites can
have thousands of pages?
We believe an automatic method of checking for links is
much less frustrating then doing it by hand. To be sure, with
complexities of the manner in which html pages can be written, perhaps
no simple software is going to do everything for you. But what if
software can help you locate 70% of what you need to look for
automatically? Or higher? We find that the rpsoft 2000
site-crawler does "most" of our tough work of looking for links.
To be sure, it does not always find 100% of them, but the ones it does
find saves us a great deal of work in verifying links promised us by
other webmasters. It can scan one website for you, or it can be
programmed to go through a series of websites for you and look for your
link. More details in this can be seen by going to the below
