    Grammatically, it would be correct to say "Does a reciprocal link work". The answer is "yes", as long as the links of this type are occasional and not frequent.

    Sorry for that grammatical error. I am not a native English speaker.

    By the way, the directory offers reciprocal, wants back a link to their site. How to exchange this? I am not understanding the formula. If i give them a link, does it appears on my site?

    You do very well for a member who is ESL. Allow me to give you a like for your effort, and to encourage you in how well you have learned the English language.

    Yes directory wants us to put their link on our own site
    1) First, we need to copy and paste their html link onto our webpage
    2) Then we have to give them our webpage URL where their link appears
    3) Then they will give us a backlink from their directory.

    A youtube video might help.

    Another reciprocal link video explanation in Hindi
    sorry I know it not the same as Bengali :)

    I would say it is useful

    You can watch this video about reciprocal links from Matt Cutts, formerly known as "Mr. Google"

    The vast majority of directories are worthless. And they might be harmful if you have too many links from them. That can give you a bad link profile. I cannot imagine any reason I would give a link from my website to a directory.

    I think quality is essential when it comes to picking directories to list in. I would personally like to have my site listed in Curlie or DMOZ etc. Yellow Page listings are also useful, I saw one business's yellow page link ranking very well for a competitive keyword.

    First of all, directory links do not improve ranking much, but they are good for diversity. Access of everything is bad, there is nothing bad in getting a few reciprocal links but too many will definitely hurt your site.
