>Let's trade links and boost both of our sites
Rogerd, you are correct to point this out. I was focusing on the narrower problem of how to make a page available to browsers yet not spider friendly. In the larger context of this thread, if you're doing recips on that basis, then the only ethical thing to do is straight links. That said, as a publisher, the vast majority of my recip requests come from sites which have little traffic when compared to mine and are simply looking for a link of any kind. Of all the requests I get, I can only recall 3 that mentioned anything about boosting SE ranks.
