Linking Policy


A Dictionary of Slang does not participate in general 'link exchange' schemes. It does not condone or promote ill considered reciprocal linking or those generated by programs or link farms, such linking can harm a website's ranking on search engines. If you are ignorant of the ongoing dabate on the contentious nature of reciprocal linking you might like to read more, articles are ready available at Search Engine Watch, or perhaps you might start by reading the dedicated Google page for webmasters which includes information on linking.

A Dictionary of Slang will only provide reciprocal links to sites that have related content, and have associated keywords within its readible text content, for example:

English language, as opposed to non-English languages
Informal language
Writing in English
English translation

The existing personal and miscellaneous links and general education links are maintained out of respect for those links agreed prior to the implementation of the current linking policy.

A Dictionary of Slang encourages links that are for the benefit of website users, humans, and not purely for the purposes of boosting ranking in search engines. It is willing to provide reciprocal links as a means of expressing gratitude to those who appreciate and support the dictionary and its content, that is, they link to the dictionary because they expect their own website users would enjoy or gain from seeing the content of this dictionary. An example of such a page exists on this very site at slang links - it's there purely to supplement the content of this dictionary.
