Step 2. Publishing Each webmaster reformats "guest article" to fit their site's layout, and integrates it into their site - in order for this to work, it must be linked to from a page that's already in all of major search engines.
Step 3. Linking Each webmaster sets up a link on their website, pointing to their "guest article" on other site. This should be a text link, and it should include your keywords. It must be on a page that's already in search engines, but not same page your article links to - search engines may not count link if two pages point to each other.
What A Content Swap Achieves: Since each article has both internal and external links pointing to it, all major search engines should eventually find them and include them in their databases.
The links search engines find will carry more weight because articles only have one link on them, and because article itself has external links pointing to it.
In addition, links on your article will be considered highly relevant to your keywords, because they're found on a page which has been optimized for keywords you want.
Link Popularity Is More Than Counting Links! The total number of links to your site does not truly reflect how effectively your site is positioned. Even on Google search engine, where results are largely based on links, I've seen sites with fewer than 100 external links outranking sites with over a thousand.
Content swaps allow you to make every link count, by creating a highly relevant link that directly contributes to your search engine rankings.
