linking competitors pollLast week, we ran a poll asking if you should risk linking to competitors. The specific question we asked was, "Do You Link To Direct Competitors?"

Not sure if you are surprised by the results, but after receiving 140 or so responses, 56% said they never link to competitors while 27% said they rarely do and 14% said they do link to competitors.

Here is the full break down of results:

Question: Do You Link To Direct Competitors?

:: Never said 79 respondents or 56% :: Rarely said 38 respondents or 27% :: Yes said 19 respondents or 14% :: Other answer... said 4 respondents or 3%

The other answers were basically rarely responses.

Are you surprised by these results?
