Welcome! If you are a seasoned webmaster, you have come to this page
for a specific reason — to learn how Ten Spider Enterprises can
increase your exposure on the web. If you are a beginning webmaster
or are here simply out of curiosity, read about
Directories first, then resume with the description of our
Spider Silk Link Exchange Partners Program provided below.
ADVANTAGES OF SPIDER SILK LINK EXCHANGE PARTNERSHIP
Ten Spider Enterprises actively pursues a policy of reciprocal link
exchange through its Spider Silk Link Partners Program. Proper link
exchange is mutually beneficial to both parties. There are numerous
advantages in forming a link exchange partnership with us which include:
- Link exchange partnership with a quality, high-standards company
rapidly becoming known within technology, career, higher education
and pet adoption circles. Our business, investment and travel
sections continue to expand. Ten Spider Enterprises is a
broad-spectrum information metasite comprising over 380 manually-edited
pages. We are constantly growing and drawing more visitors to our
- The Ten Spider Enterprises website attracts visitors with a wide
variety of interests. Many of our visitors cross-browse,
moving from their original topic of interest to other themes on our
site. This exposes your links to more potential visitors
— visitors who otherwise might never find your site! Our
website addresses ten primary themes — our Ten Spiders.
- More frequent spidering of your website by search engines from
a link exchange page bonded directly to a primary Theme Page (or to
our home page) as well as to our Master SiteMap and having a
Google™ PageRank of at least 3/10. Link pages on many
websites are buried and do not have sufficient PageRank to
foster spidering by Google™, the most widely utilized search
engine. Our site is very search engine friendly;
we use a minimum of graphics and scripting and are upgrading our entire
site to be XHTML 1.0 compliant. Additionally, we identify and actively
block email harvesters and web strippers so they cannot gain access to
your website through our links.
- Addition of your business or website description and link both
on our link exchange page and on one of our Topic Pages. (Topic Page
inclusion is conditional based upon whether we have a page on our site
to which your website directly relates.) For examples, see Golden
Retriever Rescue of Atlanta on our
Golden Retriever Rescue page and several
of our link exchange partners on our
Nanotechnology Jobs & MEMS Jobs page.)
We plan to offer Topic Page inclusion as a pay service in the future,
but it will remain free to our link partners. (Wow! Now
there’s a great reason to sign on. Who wants to pass up free
- Link exchange partnership with a website able to achieve #1
keyword rankings in a variety of categories. We have high
visibility on most major search engines.
- Link exchange partnership with a website capable of generating
strong traffic volume. We crossed the 250,000 visitors mark in
April of 2006.
- Reciprocal links on our Spider Silk Link Exchange Partners page are
organized in accordance with our website themes and arranged on a
first-come-first-listed basis within theme and sub-theme. You are
rewarded for joining us early by having your position locked within
your theme set. We do NOT arrange links on our Spider Silk Link
Exchange Partners page or link exchange directories alphabetically.
- Link stability. We are constantly updating and upgrading our
website. Hyperlinks are added and, occasionally, removed. Spider
Silk Link Exchange Partnership assures that your links will not be
removed from our website so long as your website remains in compliance
Link Exchange Policy. Furthermore, if you notify us of pages
on our site that YOU are linked to and we later need to relocate any
of these pages, we will notify you prior to the move so you can update
- We routinely conduct link verification sweeps on our website. If
verification detects a problem with any of our links to your site, we
will notify you immediately so you can take corrective action.
- Inclusion of a promo in our
Blog upon becoming a Spider Silk Link Exchange Partner.
- In most cases, multiple links from our website to yours. We provide
a partner link and one or more content links. (Content links are
provided at our discretion, depending on how closely your site’s
content matches our topics.) A relatively small percentage of web
directories offer multiple links to their link exchange partners.
How Do I Become a
Spider Silk Link Exchange Partner?
First, check out our
Silk Link Exchange Partners page. If accepted into our program,
a reciprocal link will be entered here or in one of our link exchange
directories. Other links to your website may be added to appropriate
Topic Pages on our site. If your website presently cannot be categorized
on our existing pages, your link will be included on our Spider Silk
Link Exchange Partners page or in a link exchange directory and may
receive a Topic Page link at a later date.
Next, read our
Link Exchange Policy. This policy statement defines our criteria
for Spider Silk Link Exchange Partners Program membership, explains
the application procedure in detail, and provides HTML code snippets you
can utilize on your website to quickly and easily install a partnership
link to our site.
Finally, contact us to let us know you have installed a link to our site. We
will verify your link and, if your site qualifies for Spider Silk Link
Exchange Partnership, will post one or more links to your site —
usually within 24 hours. You may also contact us prior to installing links
to ask that we pre-qualify your site. This procedure is explained in our
Website Link Exchange Policy.
We hope to be able to welcome your website soon as a Spider Silk Link
