Reuters loves linking

Chris Ahearn, Media President at Thomson Reuters, has spoken up in favour of the “link economy”. You may have noticed the recent ripple within the blogosphere over the issues surrounding linking and the World Wide Web, so it is certainly refreshing to hear a major publisher speak up with an understanding of how linking can be beneficial to all the parties involved.

So with that, I’ll direct to the original piece by Chris here, and recommend you follow his further musings on the matter via Twitter @cjahearn (not forgetting if you want the very latest from us at Moreover be sure to follow @moreovertech).

    There is no doubt about a fact that linking is helping to increase traffic on any site that needs some advertisement. Modern web marketing tools are something to admire – not only cheap in use but also sometimes sophisticated and using human mind resources. any new kind of making money is good in my opinion, and if there are some people who are earning from linking this is also good. With such new thoughts and possibilities we can give our economy new boost to rise again.

    Hi, yep agreed. Without linking how would we find anything of value on the Web?

    my experience from bigger companies is that they like to get linked as a dofollow, but the mostly return a link which is nofollow – so I do understand, that they like it :-(
