Are Link Exchange Emails Dead?

The top of asking for links, is nothing new. We wrote about link exchanges dozens of times here, heck we know that Tuesday mornings is the best time to send them out to convince people to link to you.

But in 2010, are link exchanges emails still worth it? When you get a link exchange request, do you delete the email without looking? Do you bother reading link exchange emails? Do you bother replying? Do you send them out yourself?

Take our poll:

A WebmasterWorld thread is having a debate on this topic now. Moderator, martinibuster, said:

Virtually ever link request I have received for at least the last six years has been useless trash. If I put a rule on my inbox to permanently delete any email with typical link request subject lines, I am confident I will not miss reading them.

Is it possible that we have reached the end of blind reciprocal link requests and it's time the industry stopped sending them?
