I just want my reader to know that I’m gonna stop playing “link exchange” program. But I will keep all existing links that are already exchanged except the inactive blogs and the blogs that has removed my link.
Here is the list of blogs that I have removed from my sidebar. (P.S: MayPooh, KoKoThet and Ye Maung! You may let me know if you start blogging again.)
- World Thoughts
- Blue Logic Training
- Ko Ko Thet’s Blog
- Ye Maung’s Blog
Let me tell you why I did “link exchange” earlier. Actually, I got this idea from brainfox. We believed that exchanging a link can increase the PageRank of our blogs and the rank of technorati. It worked well at that time.
But things has been changed. When I read Lorelle‘s explanation on how Google ranks the websites (You can read here “Secret Out – How Google Ranks Websites” ) , I come to know that it’s better to stop playing “link exchange” program because exchanging/buying a link won’t work in future. Plus, Google might penalize my blog in case I did something wrong in playing. So, Not increasing PR is okay but i don’t want the current PR of my blog to drop anyways.
