Malaysia Asia Travel Links

Travel Blog Links Malaysia
This section for Malaysia Travel Links has been closed as I no longer accept travel blog links here. You can head over to my new Malaysia Travel Links Page, which only accepts personal travel blogs.

The reason for this is that from 2008 to 2010, travel blog links were very popular, and link exchanges were big back then. However, over the last 10 years, much has changed for this. 

Nowadays, more people are resorting to guest postings, versus link exchanges, as this proves more viable for the travel blog. But since the last 10 years, I have also moved away from the personal travel blogging and more of the informative blogging. 

Who is Malaysia Asia?

Malaysia Asia is a personal travel blog run by seasoned traveler David Hogan Jr, and I absolutely enjoy traveling and featuring places of interest around Malaysia and Southeast Asia.

Almost 95% of the content you see in this travel blog has been personally written, photographed and visited by me.

I have been traveling since 1987, and have visited quite a number of places around the world from a very young age when digital cameras were the future and good old film was all we had.

With over 30 years of traveling, I can easily say that I have visited all four continents, and since 2016, I have put more focus on Malaysia and Southeast Asia.

Where is Malaysia Asia Featured?
  • Malaysia Asia was a Google Page Rank 4 site (Page Rank is no longer used).
  • Malaysia Asia has a Domain Authority of 46 (As of November 2018), and a Page Authority of 46. 
  • Multiple award winning travel blog, with awards from tourism boards, and not those online awards.
  • Featured in multiple international travel websites and portals including CNN Travel, Yahoo Travel, Wall Street Journal and more.
  • Malaysia Asia is a pure independent travel blog and information site.
  • Malaysia Asia was one of the Top 40 World Travel Bloggers recognized by Lonely Planet from 2008 to 2013. 

The travel links section was removed here due to restrictions made by Google on too many outgoing links. Hence, they have been moved to the new page, just listing down the many travel bloggers from around the world. 

Nowadays, there has been a surge in travel bloggers around the world as many people think by having a travel blog, they can score free press trips, familiarization trips and get sponsored by hotels, airlines and brands. 

This has put a bad name to the travel bloggers industry, where those who worked really hard in the early days are getting a bad name because of many bad apples out there. 

So, now you know the main reason why I removed the Malaysia travel links page. It is to deter overnight bloggers from contacting me to have their links listed for the backlinks.

I am interested in blog link exchange with your blog. please let me know the procedure for it
Jay N said…
Hi. On your page, I noticed that you list some travel websites, but you didn't include Hostelz.com. Hostelz.com is the most complete database of hostel information available anywhere online. The site lists all hostels for free and includes direct contact info for hostels and exclusive photos and reviews.

If you could, please take a look at the site, and if you think it would be useful for your visitors it would be great if you could include it on your website. Thanks and let me know if you have any questions.

Sincerely, Jay
Malaysia Asia said…
Hello Galvin, thank you for the interest. You just need to return the favour by adding my site to your links and let me know when its done. For your site, just let me know the title and url you want added here.

Jay, same as above, are you one of the staff for Hostelz?

If you fancy travelling to Malaysia but you wish to lay down a few plans first, this site can really help. It's for independent travellers who know what they want and where they want to go, without being herded around in a group. You can book just one mini-adventure or string them together to make a longer trip: http://www.malaysiatravelplan.co.uk
