WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO MANAGE OUR LINK PROGRAM AS FOLLOWS:
First and foremost we seek out and link to resources with good gear manufacturing related content. There is no "bad" gear manufacturing related content, just some so-called Search Engine Optimization (SEO) practices that have perverted the usefulness of linking. We are trying to take the high ground through all the SEO hype by applying these simple rules:
(1) We do not swap links with link farms or sites with mega-link collections. These do not serve any
purpose to our visitors! We hope and expect that such distortions to web searching will become obsolete someday.
(2) We reserve the right to selectively link only to those websites with gear-related content. We consider it an honor to link to sites with gear-related content even if they don't link back to us!
(3) Sites of interest to the gearing community may be placed on our "Other Resources" page. From experience, there are many companies not directly related to gearing that are important to our community, so each link request is considered.
(4) Sites that intentionally do not participate in reciprocal linking will not likely improve their search engine ranking here, even though we include those sites based on good content. Content is priority one!
(5) We link only to the home page, or to quality content in gear-related articles. No link backs below a 2nd level page. No two-way or three-way linking. No exceptions.
(6) We place a "nofollow" attribute in links to interesting sites without reciprocal link capability.
Please note: "Nofollow" links and links located on our "Other Resources" page do not participate in Search Engine page ranking. This has no effect on our visitors who choose to follow these links.
As SEO techniques change, these observances will likely change too, but we will always link to any site with good gear-related content even if that site cannot link back to us. Meshing With Gears deeply appreciates its link partners and will always seek new link partners who can provide our visitors with quality resources.
