Hi Bobnotts! I see that you are adding CPDL links :) I was wondering if it is possible to wait until the CPDL wiki comes back online before adding the links, because for one the links are currently broken, and furthermore I won't want naming issues to pop up, so it may be a good idea to wait for the wiki to come back up :) Also don't forget to add links to IMSLP from CPDL too! Hehe... Thanks! :) --Feldmahler 10:51, 12 July 2007 (EDT)

By the way, it would be very good if, once CPDL is back up, you could set up an interwiki prefix (e.g. imslp:) in CPDL for links to IMSLP. This is because normal external links (like [ CPDL] -> CPDL) are made in such a way that they are ignored by Google. Interwiki-style links (like [[cpdl:Main Page|CPDL]] -> CPDL) are not ignored by Google. In particular, such links will contribute to improving the page rank of the linked page. In IMSLP there is already an interwiki prefix (last example above), so each link from IMSLP potentially improves the Google rank of the CPDL page. Hope I managed to explain things clearly... --Leonard Vertighel 12:05, 12 July 2007 (EDT)
Sorry for the rather long delay in replying to these messages! Perhaps I should check this talk page more often? ;-) I've just opened a thread at the CPDL forums, requesting what you suggested, Leonard. Hopefully an interwiki link system will be set up for IMSLP soon. --Bobnotts 03:15, 6 July 2009 (EDT)
