    I have heard a lot about link popularity. But, I have not understood the concept and its importance. My associate told me that it is a general representation of a total number of web pages that are linked to a particular site. It helps to determine the position of a website on the search result page. As link can improve the PR, it says the popularity of the links is known with the count of the links pointing to one’s site via another site. For the same, the content of both the incoming links and outbound links should be attractive. Is this true?

    The Link Popularity analysis program will search Google, Yahoo, AllTheWeb, AltaVista, and MSN to determine how many pages are linking to your web page. Link popularity is the total number of web sites that link to your site. An increasing number of search engines rank sites in part by the site's link popularity. However, the "popularity" is only part of the link analysis. The quality and context of links is also taken into account.
    Search engines use link popularity because of the following thought: if many other web sites think that your site is worthy of being linked to, then your site must offer good content.
    Eventually, all major search engines will use link popularity, so it's essential to observe and improve your link popularity. Our software tool tells you how "popular" search engines believe your site to be. You can also see how popular your competitor web sites are.

    Link popularity is the ultimate parameter in achieving supreme exposure on the web for your web site. Link popularity is measured by the number and quality of the inbound links of your site. Inbound links helps to attain high search engine ranking for your web site.

    Hi,

    A measure of the quantity and quality of websites that link to your site. Link popularity is an example of the move by search engines towards off-the-page-criteria to determine quality content. Off-the-page-criteria adds the aspect of impartiality to search engine rankings, as citations from other authors in the Web community help define a site's reputation. In theory, great sites will naturally attract many links, and content-poor sites will have difficulty attracting any links.
    Link popularity assumes that not all inbound links are equal. For example, an inbound link from a major directory carries more weight than an inbound link from an obscure personal home page.


    Regards.

    TRIVIA: Google PageRank is not the same thing as Link Popularity. PR is actually a subset of link popularity. Whereas PR focuses strictly on the quantity and popularity of links, link popularity adds a "quality factor" into the equation. Unfortunately, many people mistakenly use the terms "link popularity" and "PageRank " interchangeably, which has served to confuse the issue further.

    A link popularity is another term to refer to link visibility that has been used extensively. We prefer to reserve popularity for the measure of number of visits. Although not yet implemented on the Ranking, we intend to consider number of visits or popularity as a relevant factor for our rankings in the future. The number of links pointing to your site as indexed by any given search engine. This is not a true count of the links to your site, but rather how many links the search engine gives the site "credit" for when calculating SERP placement. The same definition as "inbound links"

    Link popularity is measured by the number and quality of the inbound links of your site. Inbound links helps to attain high search engine ranking for your web site. But your goal will remain unrealized unless you subscribe a top-class link exchange software.

    one way links are better than reciprocal links... i don't bother myself with directories that requires link backs. some even require payment for the links.
