Link FAQ

Sea Crest Jewelry Designs has grown in last few years, and to improve Sea Crest Jewelry Designs Link Directory I have added more linking options to improve the visibility of your site listed there.

Q. What is a Reciprocal Link?

A. It is a link back to my site from your site hyper linked to A Reciprocal Link must be posted back to my site for any of my linking Options except Non-Linking Partners before I will post a link to your site.

It can be banner with Title, a Text Link or a Text and Banner Link. I would rather not have just a Banner link without my Site Title below it, also hyper linked as this does little for Search Engine Ratings.

If you are a basic listing partner, I will post as your link back in much the same format you post my link. For example if you use my proper Title Sea Crest Jewelry Designs and Description, I will use your proper Title and Description.  But if you have a site with a list of links with short descriptions I will edit your description to about the same length.  Also some sites like to use the URL of a site for a title, so if you call me instead of my proper Title Sea Crest Jewelry Designs, I will call your site by your URL and not your proper Title.

Q. What is a Category?

A. The Link Directory is divided into Categories or Themes. All similar sites are listed together on the same page for customers to find them easier, such as looking for Jewelry - Beaded. For example if you are a Platinum Link Partner, your link will appear on 5 different Category Pages in addition to your Main Category listing.

Q. What is a Title and why is it limited to 65 Characters?

A. It is just the Name of your site, for example my Title is  Sea Crest Jewelry Designs.  It is limited to 65 Characters because this is all my linking program will allow. Also Search Engines only look at the first 65 Characters or so when they form their listings.

Q. What is a Text Description and why is it limited to 200 Characters?

A. This tells the world about your web site.  It is best to write in complete sentence, not just a list of keywords. Use your keywords but include them in complete sentences or phrases and it will make your Search Engine ratings a lot better. It is limited to 200 Characters because this is all my linking program will allow. People don't read web pages much but look at the big type and pictures, so you only need this much room to hit them with your product or service rapidly.

Q. What are Quotes?

A. At the bottom of the listing an optional quote or slogan may be included.  Quotes must be in the form of a sentence and contain different text than what is listed in your description.  Text html may also be used if you want to include a link to your directory or a specific product.  Again here there is a 80 Character limit to the HTML or text.
