Maybe you guys can help me. I'm an experienced haunter and run a walkthrough haunt every year but i am new to the website game and am looking for some partners that would like to sponsor a link to my site and in return i will sponsor a link to your site. if anyone is interested let me know.
LOL. Wishing for reciprocal links is so 1994. The concept worked well in the early days of the web, but these days the web is so expansive, the idea can easily get out of control and adds to your website management and maintenance tasks. You'd regularly have to screen the list for dead websites or otherwise broken links.
You're better off going the social media route. I'm not simply talking about facebook, youtube or instagram. This very forum is social media. Add your web address to your sig for starters, so every time you post, you're advertising your website. You're halfway there with the image in your sig, you just need to wrap it in a web link.
If you have page counters, remove them. Most folks looking for reciprocal links are people who unrealistic expectations of web traffic. It takes years of effort to get tens of thousands of visitors on a monthly,weekly or daily basis, especially if you aren't something general purpose like a news website. Get rid of the counters before the dash your expectations unexpectedly hard.
