View Full Version : Does this linking method works?
06-19-2004, 08:22 AM
I have this question about linking:
Let's say my affiliates links back to me using the link
Will this link improve my link popularity?
Or link popularity only works if the link is to the main index page?

Links work on every page. Not just the home page. So this links should be good for you.
Just be sure to use always the www version or non-www all the time so you don't split your PR on the two different names but same page.

Sorry, another question on SE spidering (unrelated to the above question)....
If I'm using external CSS sheet, and the links is on the external page, will the links be spidered?

I don't know enough about CSS to be 100% positive, I just format H1 and stuff.
My GUESS would be that they will not be followed.

Hmmm....I believe more and more webmasters are using CSS styled sheets. Probably that is a way to get the external sheet spidered. Anyone has any suggestions?

Links on the external page? As an includes file?

Includes files are read as normal text. If you go to your page and "view source" you should see the actual links. The only cases I'm aware of that aren't so are .js .css etc. As your style sheet only defines the appearance of your links it shouldn't have any effect on whether they're spidered unless you'd like it to be so.
Is the page in question in the link in your sig?

Ok... these are just like any SSI files then... cool stuff.
Thanks for the input Dilligaf.

diligaf, on the index and other individual pages, the way CSS files are included is through something like this: !--#include file="includes/leftnav.html"
And in the include file i have this:
a class="leftnav" href="index.shtml"
a class="leftnav" href="about.shtml"
As the links are not coded in the index page, will the links be indexed by the spiders if the only links to those individual pages are through the external include table?

Is the page live (URL please if available)? If it's on your machine view the source code from a browser, if you can see the links so can the spider. As I'd said includes files are read as plain old HTML or at least to the best of my knowledge. I certainly haven't seen that which you reference so the link would be handy because I could be missing the point.

No, the page is not live yet. Haven't uploaded or created anything. Was just wondering about this matter before I proceed to create.
Would it be possible if I emailed you the pages as attachment?

How can you e-mail me pages you haven't created yet? If they are ready, open them in a browser or load them and PM me the URL. What is it exactly that you're trying to accomplish? I aint the sharpest tool in the shed but there are a number with pretty decent resume's who check in here regularly.

I'll see if I can get a few pages created and uploaded. Will include the url when it's done. I don't even have the domain dns set yet :-)

Couldn't you just run it on your local host and open it up in a browser? That or if you've seen the technique used elsewhere (a tutorial etc.) we could have a look there. Maybe someone else will kick in here but I've just not seen exactly this though my prejudice is to say that the includes files are cool.
