How effective is free link exchange ? Obviously you should exchange with high ranked pr sites. Does it take long to see your rank go up ?

Re: Free Link Exchange Effectiveness

Rather then focusing on link exchange you may want to focus on building backlinks on sites and accounts that you have complete control off. You can post content and remove it as you wish. If you do this well some natural backlinks should also occur from others linking to your articles / content etc. The problem with link exchange sometimes is that your link winds up involved in black hat SEO so be careful. Make sure you now who you are exchanging links with and be careful about the techniques you use.

Re: Free Link Exchange Effectiveness

I definitely agree with ^ Link exchange is a SEO technique that you should not be considering any longer. There aren't really that much webmasters or site owners out there who would take time or even considering emails or any form of ""contact back"" to webmasters requesting a link exchange because:

1. Those practically begging for links would only have start up sites (no authority, no traffic)
2. link pages are usually like link farms (if filled with relevant sites it is overpopulated)

Re: Free Link Exchange Effectiveness

Free link exchange with relative and high PR sites is effective but you should have a limit of links that are exchanged. Still many websites are getting benefits of this strategy and to certain extent many doing this.

Re: Free Link Exchange Effectiveness

Exchanging links is an old SEO technique which I believe has no place in 2012. The effort and time you will use to ask for link exchange can be used better in blog commenting, forum posting and article submission.
