    "A reciprocal link is an agreement between two webmasters to provide a hyperlink within their own website to each other's web site. Generally this is done to provide readers with quick access to related sites, or to show a partnership between two sites."


    Are they less valuable than inbound links? Well, technically yes. Or at least that is what Google will tell you. Done in moderation, there's nothing particularly wrong with it. It's common for two websites in a niche to have links to each others sites without technically being a reciprocal link. Just like anything that is a little less than white-hat, just don't abuse it and you'll be fine.

    It is a link exchange between two websites(Link to me and I'll link to you).This links are unnatural and not recommended by Google.

    One-way links are best for get rankings.

    Hello Friends,

    Most reciprocal link requests are complete garbage, and most spammy reciprocal links probably do not help sites out that much in Google's search results.

    Reciprocal links can be of very high value in SEO marketing, as long as they come from good sources.

  • Take a look in to this, guidelines of Google over reciprocal links

    Too much of reciprocal links will be bad for your site. Even if you try to use only one or two reciprocal links, don't make reciprocal links with irrelevant sites unless there is a direct partnership.
