Bill, I am not sure how closely related ranking and hits may be, but figure this out. I made no effort to keep my site afloat because I use it as a reference tool only. As result, my website is not popping up (ranking high?) with any of the most popular searching engines. Yet, most of my daily traffic comes from three countries where I don't sell my frames (1.Canada, 3.Australia and 3.New Zeeland) which fact makes me believe that my site has been linked with some popular websites from those three countries. Apparently links from other sites to yours do bring traffic, and that counts for something I guess.Originally posted by Bill Henry:
With all of the changes that Yahoo! and Google have been making recently, I am not exactly convinced that reciprocal links will increase your ranking in those search engines, anymore
That's a very good advice and is very important to anyone with a website.Originally posted by Bill Henry:
I am careful not to close the linking page from my site.
Good question, I just tested this with Internet Explorer, with Pop ups block enabled, and it works fine when another windows is opened by clicking on a link.Originally posted by TheDoctah:
You may run into trouble with people who have pop-ups disabled, no?
I don’t think so. My understanding of pop-up blockers is that they only disable windows that are not accessed by a click. Since “Framersworld.com” would be opened by a click on a previous page, this new page would be displayed without the intercept.You may run into trouble with people who have pop-ups disabled, no?
