To my surprise, 60% of the SEOs out there (at least the ones who read here) actually read link exchange email requests. 40% don't and I am part of those 40%.
Of the 284 responses, here is the breakdown:
- 32% Delete Them Without Reading
- 29% Read Them All But Rarely Reply
- 28% Reply To Interesting Ones
- 6% Block Them From Reaching Their Inbox
- 4% Reply To All
I am really a bit surprised by these results, but in hindsight, I shouldn't be. I asked a bunch of SEOs if they exchange links.
