Correct Backlinking Question


Recommended Posts

Hey All!I have a website for a virtual marketplace of home services. I currently have 160 paying subscriptions. When someone signs up, we require them to place a backlink to our website on theirs. The question I am getting from clients is that they wish to have a link straight to their listing. So I am wondering if there is a code that can have an image linked to their listing. like

<a href="www.xyz.com"><img src="www.xyz.com/img.jpg">Check out my Listing! </a>

but In the code I want a backlink that is not clickable to my website but that is also indexed and found by search engines. How would this be written correctly so that both links get indexed.So basically I need a clickable link, and a link that is hidden in the code but both will be seen by search engines :) .If you wish to have more info please feel free to ask!Thanks! :)And if you wish to see the virtual marketplace you can check it out at www.hse247.com

You can have a link with no text in it, though I'm not sure how search engines will interpret that. The other thing is to use CSS to hide the link.

<a href="mysite.com"></a>

or

<a href="mysite.com" style="display:none">My Site</a>

While I'm far from an SEO expert, I'm fairly sure that at least some of the major search engines will ignore hidden text (which presumably would include links).

The purpose of backlinks is to generate traffic. You want to list people on your site and in exchange getting the link back to generate traffic back to your site. If your client does not want to abide by the rules then why do you want to give up your PR without getting any traffic back?If you try to HIDE stuff from Google, Google will eventually figure it out and penalize you for it.If your backlink policy is getting in the way, then change the policy.Guy
