    i,

    After one month, I think it’s the moment to share my personal experience with Symzio link exchange widget.

    I use to follow my rank on several keywords to monitor my SEO actions effects.
    I installed the widget in the first week of november and saw some improvements on my ranking.

    Here are some screen captures to illustrate these improvements (red mark : Symzio widget installation)

    Symzio Link Exchange Widget is a great and easy way to improve our SEO and to get more traffic on your website (+25% since installation for me).

    By now, only 11 artists decided to use it, so don’t hesitate, it will certainly boost your visibility

    Oups, It seems that the images links are forced to https (you have to replace the urls to http to be able to see screen captures …

    Me too. Google search result is a good way to monitoring ranking.

    I use ‘cityscape photos’ to search my website. After implement link exchange widget, within 1 week, my site moved up from page 9 last one to page 6. It is working undoubtedly.

    Chrisroll and Songquan:

    I agree this is working great. I notice that I am ranking on the first page in Google searches with the big agencies – and their ads! That means I am showing up for free and they are paying to be where I am getting listed. Wow.

    What I can’t figure out is why only 11 of us are using this free tool? That makes no sense to me. Why do you think it is being so under-used?

    It will be interesting to know how many people use Symbiostock plugin.

    For some reasons I don’t understand some artists prefer living hidden.
    When you use the widget, everybody (and other artists) knows your site url…

    Chrisroll,

    Perhaps they don’t need or want business or sales? Still, to spend the time to build a site, you’d think they’d like to have the free traffic coming to their site, even if it is just to show off their art. Or, it is as you suggest: remain hidden from the world.

    I think people except a few of us might be visiting this forum once per half year and don’t know what is going on. I don’t think anyone will refuse this free opportunity to gain rank boost. Especially when site is up and running, they don’t come to the board any more.

    Songquan,

    I don’t think you are wrong with what you are saying about the lack of visits to this site by Symbiostock users.  It doesn’t make sense to me to not visit often if you are really operating a Sysmbiostock-powered site.  The exchange widget is a perfect example: I am sure glad I know about it. I am glad I signed up for it.  This alone is a reason as to why visiting this site regularly just makes sense.

    Me too. Set up the site is just the beginning. There are whole lot of work to be done.

    However, others appears don’t think this way, or they have no idea how to maintain and improve their websites. Not suprising as they are photographers, illustrators not webmasters.

    When site is up, it’s done. They don’t check plugin updates, they might thought just minor bug fix… The update newsletters might fall into trash can. They probably don’t know the existance of link exchange plugin.

    That’s my explaination why only a handful of us are using the widget.

    Good explanation, and I think you are right. I spend a lot of time on my site and on social media promoting it.  Let’s hope more join the link exchange widget.
