The author replied to say he would exchange, but wanted to conduct the exchange via his new link exchange system, Lavalinx.
I was pretty skeptical about another link exchange system, having found others overrun with really low quality sites.
What is interesting about Lavalinx is its ability to triangulate link exchanges between different pages.
Furthermore you can automate link exchanges by inserting some PHP code into your site / blog, so that when you approve your link exchanges (via the Lavalinx control panel) they are automatically inserted into your site.
You can also configure multiple pages for your link exchanges making it easy for site owners to exchange contextual links, i.e. you are not trading links of spammy “Links” or “Friends” pages.
To get their ball rolling Lavalinx are offering 500 free account’s on their system, after which they will move to paid subscriptions.
I have already traded 5 links with this system and have probably declined another 5-10. That may not sound a lot, but they currently only have 100 members, when they get up to 500++ a lot more exchanges will take place.
Furthermore, I did not have do do anything to get those link exchanges… just signed up and waited for the requests to come in, so even this small number has made it worth while joining.
Also, they were decent exchanges… relevant sites of a reasonable quality, and the fact that it is to become a subscription based service will hopefully keep it that way.
I hope Lavalinx works out, partly because I got a free account, but mainly because it would be a really convenient service, particularly if you want to launch and back-link few small sites for SEO purposes.
The person I was speaking to at Lavalinx also mentioned that they have secured further investment for their product, and plan to develop their system further, something Ill have to keep an eye out for…
They still have some free accounts available if you want to try Lavalinx for yourself.
