A set of RECIPROCAL LINKS
Links are good. Reciprocal links are especially good. Requests for a link at Zyra.org.uk have been especially popular, so much so that it has not been practical to keep up with requests that have been coming in.
So, before requesting a reciprocal link here, please understand that this may take some time to do. We'd prefer to avoid having an automated system, as these can't be sustainable long-term because search engines aren't going to be fooled into ranking a site highly just because it's got a bulk link system!
So, please take the time to look around this site first rather than just requesting a link with everyone.
We're more favourably inclined to reciprocal link with websites where a moderate number of well-chosen links are put in place because you like them rather than hundreds of arbitrary links shovelled through an automated system just to fool the search engines. I'm sure you understand why it is this way.
To see the Zyra.org.uk link/description/banner see the intro page, and it's also worth looking at the page about linking with Zyra.org.uk
The policy here is to have reciprocal links with lots of other sites. It's good diplomacy, but also it increases the amount of visiting going on generally. (Propagation). It's also good for promoting sites to search engines as the fame of a site is greater the more other sites link TO it. By far the best way of promoting a site is to get as many other people as possible to have reciprocal links with it. This idea has caught on, and so there are quite a lot of links on this page. In fact, there have ended up being so many that the page has had to be split. If you are looking for YOUR link, remember that I'll most likely have linked to you from within the general context of some of the pages of the main site, and not just from a set of reciprocal link pages. To search for it, you can use the advanced search facility at www.google.com and specify "sites that link to me". Also, on a manual search for your link, don't give up if you don't find it on this page. It could be on any of a set of other pages including Reciprocal Links Page 2, (for bulk requests), and now also on Zyra.me.uk/recips.htm (for new requests after March 2003)! And then later Recips2! Even splitting it like that, there is still a snag, as there are "too many" links on this page. So, it's had to be split up again. Also see Recip3.htm and Recip4.htm . There is no automated system here for reciprocation, and it's all done in a manual ad-hoc way. In contrast, see the problem mentioned at the end of this page! In the end it has become such a muddle that we are not even sure whether we link to ourselves properly, so we have set up the "Clique" - an experiment in website interrelationship.

There are also reciprocating arrangements with Add-Me.com , Yellow Pages, some Affiliate Schemes, and with SOME Search Engines
And we are trying to persuade other people to also put in links to THIS SITE. Also note that the above mentioned sites are linked to from various other places within this site, (not just from this page, because that would be silly). It's a simple and fair offer; you link to me, I link to you. If you'd like that for your site, please put in a link request and I will try to include a link to YOU. There is a BANNER available. Tell me where you are linking from within your site, and where you would like linking to from this site. (The to/from business becomes clear when you see that it would be silly to have everyone's link on the front page!).
If you've already got your side of a reciprocal link in and you've linked to me, but you find you're not yet on this list here, e-mail me to make sure I know, and remember that the site is published and updated every now and then in ISSUES, so once I know, it'll be in the next issue.
Also see that there is another option for being linked to by this site, and that is to have an entry in the PRESTIGIOUS LIST and/or by being included in one of the CATEGORIES or by other agreement. E-mail me and I'll consider it.
Yes, but this is getting silly! There has evolved a new breed of reciprocal link merchant to exploit the fact that search engines like reciprocal links. As a result, some places have bulk reciprocal links. In fact I have heard that Google will punish sites that have too many links. This is very bad news here as we like to link with as many places as possible because it's good for the interlinkedness. It even brings into question the whole point of it! Anyway, considering there were three hundred and fifty links on this page alone, a decision had to be made to split it, and there had to be some way of deciding. The decision was to split most of the BULK en-bloc reciprocal links off to a separate page. To see this see Reciprocal Links page 2. If you find your link has been shifted, don't grumble too much! I am probably listing your sites from the BALI page or the Hotels page or the Credit cards page or the Ringtones and other mobile phone snazziness page or some of the other pages within this site, AS WELL AS the Reciprocal Links page 2 or the additional page ! Even after splitting the main Reciprocal Links page, there were still too many links, so it had to be split again, so there's now also recip3.htm and recip4.htm ! Chances are, for any particular site, if the truth be known, it's most likely being linked-to by several pages. The first place to look is the Categories
More about the philosophy of Reciprocal Links here. Note that reciprocal linking should be done ethically. This is also explained on the page, and contrasted with the bad ways of doing it.
