Automatic link exchange programs are pointless, the web sites you do exchange links with are often not relevant or only somewhat relevant and the web sites part of the link exchange program often use spam techniques. A sudden increase in backlinks isn't going to look to natural and could get you banned. I wouldn't recommend joining any automatic link exchange program, instead I think you should search for link partners manually, it may be more work, but in the end will bring you more.
