  1. agree with your article. Installing blogroll link leads to a link out (external link), and it means your link to the source of traffic, and may also backlinks. if your blog is less strong backlinks blog gained significant reputation will decline. There needs to be an agreement between the 2 blogs to get a 2-way link.
