Link Exchange Agreement + Non-Compete Clause
When running a business through a website, marketing is of great importance. Search Engine Optimisation, sponsored search links and affiliate agreements are just a few ways to enhance website traffic. Another popular method is Link Exchange. Link Exchange can be done on an informal basis, simply by initiating dialogue with the webmaster of another site; however it is often best to formalise the relationship by using a Link Exchange agreement.
This Link Exchange Agreement contains a comprehensive set of terms and conditions that govern the exchanging of single or multiple links between two websites. Detailed clauses govern the establishing and maintenance of links, website maintenance obligations and use by the parties of one another’s intellectual property.
Some parties may wish to restrict the other party from entering into similar agreements with other sites.
