    I recently got my site indexed on google, which is a big step, but it WAYYYYY down in the list when keywords are typed in. metatags are good and relevent, and i know i should exchange links with several of the top sites under the keywords i'm looking for. Problem is, their all competitors! It is a medical tourism website, so I was thinking about exchaning links with WebMD and other sites like that that are industry-based, but not direct competitors. Any ideas?

    website is

    First, AFAIK meta tags don't help. Second, link exchanges don't always work. Here's the thing.

    Search Engines want people to find good content. If you want people to find you, give them good content.

    If your content is good, your interface is usable, eventually people will start using your site, spread the word, etc. When that happens, your site will jump up the ranks.

    For example, I'm pretty sure aside from picking an obvious name, WDF has done little "SEO". It's got a great community and is known widely, and that brought WDF up the lists.

    I always wonder why people think more about getting people to come their sites, but care less about their experience on the site itself.

    Moreover, make sure you don't exchange links with someone who is also exchanging links for ranking purposes. When some search engines (especially Google) find someone that does that, they're liable to artificially drop their rank significantly.
