That's right, this strategy involves offering your skills and expertise, whatever they may be, to a webmaster in exchange for a link.

The'trick' to SEO, is that there is no
Getting high-quality links coming to a website is nothing more than a value exchange.
If a link is worth getting, you can bet your life you'll need to deliver some kind of real value in exchange for it. Whether it's time, money, a favorite, expertise, or content / information; you're going to' pay'for it one way or another.
