it's true that Yola is much bigger to home-made blogging and WYSIWYG platforms but blogger, wordpress and some others are giants relatively to Yola.
Plus, we can't make sure that each publisher(of Yola) want to make their content available in other sites.

Sorry if I didn't get your idea.

Hi djbasicz,

I love your enthusiasm to create a better world! I'm not sure how linking together the sites will accomplish this though, especially from an SEO standpoint.

Link exchanges between sites are only really beneficial if they are between sites with related content. Search engines may actually penalize you for too many links from unrelated sites. The search engines use links to and from your site to determine whether you are an authority in your space and whether your content has value or not. As such you want other quality, related sites to link to you. The idea of a link on your site, is to point your visitors to another site that will add value for them. If you link to something they are not interested in and they click through to it, they are unlikely to return to your site. For example if you have a site that sells clothing, it is not terribly valuable for you to get a site offering carpentry services to link to you.

I hope this information is helpful! Please let me know if I have misunderstood.

Hi, thank you

But no I don’t mean that we should have each other’s links on our own sites.
The idea came to me when I was looking for Yola members with published sites, they were hard to find. I just thought, what if there was a section within this blog that members could go to and immediately see who has a published site, creating a linking group of site builders, visiting each others sites, giving those you like a thumbs up on Facebook or a Tweet on Tweeter,

That’s the kind of links I was meaning, just an easy way to see who is published. Visit, share, comment on themselves or others.

Is that clearer?

hi djbasicz2,

Thanks for clearing this up. Now I see what you mean. Although we do not have this type of facility, you can maybe check out published sites on this thread: http://forum.yola.com/yola/topics/let...
