VBA links directory, better SEO on the link to us page

Well all know having anchor words on incoming links to your forum helps with SEO.
One of the big downfalls IMO is the link to us page on the VBA links directory. By default you can only add banners.
Banners will add a nice image, plus a link. But I like many others do not do images of any great standard, plus search engines can not read any text displayed on the image.
To gain maximum returns from your link to us page, its far better to give the HTML code and description of your forum for others to place on their websites.
Well placed keywords on high ranking pages means better ranking for those words.
There is a very simple solution to this, which takes very little time to implement, I will even give you the code to do it and alter to your own needs.
First off go into your admin cp and go to the ADV_LINKS_LINKTOUS template
FindNext alter the code below to your own needs and add it below the above. The code is almost the same as I use on my own forum.PHP Code:
You can give people more choices of the code they use to link back to you, giving even more keywords and phrases you rank better for.PHP Code:
<table align="center" border="0" cellpadding="$stylevar[cellpadding]" cellspacing="$stylevar[cellspacing]" class="tborder" width="100%">
<td class="tcat" colspan="2">Link To Us</td>
<td align="center" class="panelsurround">
<B>To place a link in our free link exchange directory,</B> first you need to place a link back to us. <br /><br />
Please place the following code on your website.<br /><br />
<a href="http://www your url here.com/"> <<<<<Your Forum Description here>>> </a><br /><br />
<B>You do not have to be a member of our forums to exchange links with us.</B><BR /><BR />
Simply add the above code to your web site then proceed to the next step.<BR /><BR />
All links submitted to our free Spain links directory by non members are moderated, but they are quickly approved.<BR /><BR />
You can see an example of the above code in place on my own link to us page.
It still needs some work, with adding a few more options of descriptions people can use.
Notice I dont require people to register to exchange links. Why force people to join, if all they will do is register, place a link and never get seen again.
At this stage, I would also like to thank Micheal for the help with some of the code used above
Coding help please
If you found any of the above any use, bung us a link, go on, you know you want to
