60% Read Link Exchange Emails & 40% Don't

About a month ago, I asked if link exchanges are dead. I covered a WebmasterWorld thread that had discussion about how valuable these link exchange emails are.

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.

Forum discussion continued at WebmasterWorld.
