Exchanging links with PR0 sites worth it?

Do you exchange links with them when they ask?

I receive many link exchange proposals most of them of large links directories with pr 0.
Should I refuse it all or is there any good in exchanging links with them?

silverbytes,

imho, it is time to get out of the PR mania and emphasize on the quality of the sites.

Have a look at those "large link directories" carefully. Are they integral part of the main site? Do the webmasters take care of the resource sites? Do they list sites of quality or list casino/inkjet printers/cheap telephones/buy viagra arbitrarily? If so, then such link directories are of little value to users and better to avoid.

If a new site with good content (useful for your visitors) approach you for a reciprocal link and you are not against reciprocal links I think it will be worth it.

Every site starts with a PR0 and a PR0 oneday can become a PR5 if you are PR-centric while building links.

just my 2 rupees :-)

Good luck!

I may link to PR0 sites if they provide solid content and have potential to gain PR in the future. Always stay away from sites selling p, d and c.

You mention the word "exchange", These are the points to take into consideration.

1. Is it a fair exchange?, is your site PR4 and they PR0, in that case ,NO.

2. Will the site get pagerank in the future, possibly yes, in that case, it could be worth sticking around.

But my rule of thumb is not to exchange with PR0 sites.
