I wrote to the site by means of the e-mail address they had published, but when the message bounced, I removed the links to them, not only from this page, but more importantly from the page of Hotels.

Also see the RECIPROCAL LINKS page1

(if you get a chance to check any of the sites mentioned on this page please tell us if any return-links have changed in their linking status!)

There are also reciprocating arrangements with I Need Hits , Yellow Pages, some Affiliate Schemes, and with SOME Search Engines

The moral of the story of this page is: Generally it's best to avoid bulk linking. Places that suggest you link to their twenty sites to fool search engines sometimes aren't in your best interests. The problem is that some of the places doing this (not all) might stop linking back and then they have the advantage of a lot of sites linking to them but the favour not being returned. As far as I know, search engines favour this "cheating" approach, so it's important to avoid it by checking links and removing them where necessary. It's important to give the people at the other sites a fair chance to mend the links. There are honest reasons for failing to link back, for example the rebuilding of the site, but after a while you can spot who's going to be fair and who isn't. I was especially offended by one place that sent out loads of spam link requests to this site even though it was already linking to them, then they ignored multiple (polite) reminders that this was going on. Honesty is the best policy!

Also note that all these places have been linked to by actual pages within this website, for example Hotels, ie not just link pages. In contrast, the sites mentioned here, some of them haven't even got links back! On 2012/10/05 it was found that the number of these places that could be seen actually linking back to the Zyra.org.uk front page was... ZERO.
