Hi, I met a businessperson who was interested in "trading links" with me (he's the webmaster of a business he works at)at a pet related show this weekend. He got back to me today, saying that although he liked the quality of my site, that "I must be really new, since I have a zero page rank for Google." And, basically, told me thanks but no thanks. Trying not to be offended, but it kind of seemed like he brushed me off because of some "rule". So, before I write him back with what I think is the case and why he's not looking at the big picture, I wanted to run it by someone here... When I do a search for keywords on Google for myself, using "dog photography Clearwater, dog photography largo , and various other search words, etc etc....I am either the first, second, or at least on the first page of the result. Isn't that more important than some arbitrary 0/10 pagerank that only looks at links TO my site as far as the two of us trading links? I mean, the point is to get more TRAFFIC to your site, right, and if someone searches for my site, goes there, and sees HIS link (which is related business-wise) isn't that the point? Basically, this is what I was going to reply to him. But maybe I missed something. Thanks!
