A CDE Definition
(1) Also called "reciprocal linking," it is an agreement between websites to provide hyperlinks to each other in order to increase visitors and search engine page ranking. Three-way linking links site A to B, B to C and C to A, creating a less obvious relationship than between two sites and considered better for search engine optimization (SEO). See link campaign.
(2) An organization that places advertisements from one website onto the pages of another. It ensures that the ads are divided equitably so that if site A displays an ad from site B, site B will be sure to show an ad from site A.
A mission to increase visitors to a website and obtain a higher search engine ranking. It implies asking anyone and everyone to link to the site. For example, a business may ask its suppliers and customers for links, but does not necessarily offer to place a reciprocal link on its own website. See link exchange.
