Hey all

A Link Exchange section or forum would be useful to exchange backlinks between members, I think that it should be for members with a certain post count, and ensure that it isn't touted as a service.

I think it would be pretty preductive, ensuring that only members with over a certain number of posts >1000? >500 can use it. I dont think spamming to use this feature would be an issue, moderators are around on a regular basis. The reason im thinking of this is because i've just gotten around to looking into my SEO more and this kind of feature for fellow designers would be a good idea in my opinion.

That's you going on the assumption that the moderators here actually enjoy removing spam.

I agree that if this were to go ahead it would be for users on a larger post count however it's just going to encourage people to post more and more pointless and spammy type posts.

I can't see this ever happening on Ozzu.

That might be something we could put in the premium member section since the chances of it being abused wouldn't be as great.

I'd say yes just to see what would happen, even if for just awhile. :D

I enjoy writing user.js scripts in Opera that make it easier for me to do. :lol:

Oh Joebert, we sort of need to exchange PM's or something. I've just started using Opera and wouldn't say no to hearing on what it is you are doing.

The point is, members wouldn't see the section until they have surpassed the post count. Other members wouldn't bother with spamming if they dont know its there.

We don't currently have a section for that. That's what this discussion is all about.

I think with the addition of The Marketplace, "link exchanges" should be ok in there to a point.

I myself will be somewhat picky with what I let go though.

For instance, if I see a thread with a bunch of website links and "Looking for link exchanges for these sites", I'll probably trash it.

However if I see a thread with a few paragraphs that don't look like they're part of some cheap automated backlink building scheme, I'll probably leave it alone.

For example

domain.com1 is a site that sells purple widgets, I'd like to exchange links with sites that sell green, yellow, or any other color widgets. This way we can still get customers what they need when we don't have it in stock ourselves.

domain.com2 is an educational site about doozingles, I'd like to exchange links with some doozingle sales sites, preferably ones with affiliate programs.

domain.com3 is an entertainment site, if you've ever had a headline with the words "Britney Spears" in it, I'd like to exchange links with you.
