Building links through reciprocal link exchanges is a simple yet very powerful website promotional tool. If done correctly, it will increase your traffic significantly and save you a lot of advertising money and time.

Careful with buying links. What happen often is that once you stop paying, your links get drop. If a significant amount of links are dropped on your site, then this will raise a flag with Google and they will suspect that links were purchased.

I also think that one-way links are more useful, effective and safe in the long run. Link building also needs high-quality and relevant links for search engines to include them in your site's stats.

And most important is appropriate category selection for the site. Link placed in appropriate category gives good results when compared to other tactic in SEO.

Yeah this is similar to companies who offer "We will only charge you when we're number one". They often use a flaky method which only gets you to number one for a short while and for a low competitive keyword.

Link building, while a very broad and vague term, usually describes anything you do to point hyperlinks back to your website from third party websites (see the example below). These hyperlinks, or links for short, help to get traffic to your site, allow others to find your valuable site, create awareness for your website, adds credibility, and most importantly assists in having your site found by search engines such as Google. Search engines, through use of complicated algorithms, give better search result rankings to those that have more links to their website. Links equate to ‘value’ or ‘popularity status’ on the web. It should be noted that search engines also have other criteria that determine their results, but inbound links are often given the most weight.

You can do it yourself (not saying hireing a company is a bad idea if you have the capitol)

Example I have my new site online, its been online for what?....less 2 weeks at the most. I allready have 307 backlinks to high PR sites, and average about 40 individual clicks (on my home page) per day and riseing.
