Do you engage in link exchanges for your sites?
Inbound links to a Web site are an important factor used by search engines to determine how high the page and the site being linked to should appear in search results. Almost all webmasters exchange links with other webmasters as part of a strategy to increase the number of inbound links to their sites because of that fact. What about you? Do you currently participate in link exhanges with other webmasters to increase the number of links to your sites? If you have exchanged links, how many current links do you have on that basis?  View poll
