Link Exchange Policy
Every once in a while, I get an email from some webmasters or site owners asking for a reciprocal link exchange with my blog. I usually brush them off as some nuissance emails and automatically delete them.
Lately though, I have been thinking a little more or trying to reconsider the offers. However, as Marc would have put it, you need to look at some factors when doing or accepting some link exchanges. One of them would obviously be the PageRank (PR) of the site that wants to exchange links with you. Another would be the type of site and similarity of content to your blog.
It’s a different thing altogether when someone asks that his site be linked from my blog for a regular flat fee. I have been offered that before but I shrugged it off.
Has any of you had the same experience. Do you have your own blog link exchange policies as well? What are your thoughts about exchanging links?
