Reciprocal Review Carousel

A very good linking strategy from Cotojo over at Secure your PC for Free. I hope you will join in and create more links to each others blogs. The following is quoted from Cotojo's page with the addition of some of the links I like to read.

— copy and paste the Reciprocal Review Carousel and instructions below this line —

Reciprocal Review Carousel idea is based on few simple and yet effective link-building and blogging techniques I have learned:

Build value of the blog by creating a link from within content.

Provide a value to community by doing a review on blog you personally like.

Link to YOUR blog has exact anchor text you want and helps you boost Google Rankings.

No more then 30 outbound links from any page to prevent penalties for link farming.

Viral effect of the link – as more bloggers participate, link to your blog with YOUR anchor text, coming from quality content post will spread.

Here is How to participate:
· Copy the entire text between the specified lines.
· Create a post on your site and put at least one paragraph explaining how you joined the Reciprocal Review Carousel.
· Paste the text you copied into your post.
· Remove the Bottom Review and At the Top add your own review with a link to a site reviewed, at least 2 sentences about the site and a note – Reviewed by: Your Anchor Text. Link your anchor text to your site.

Here is an example:
