Receiving 3-Way Link Invitations

Am I Doing Well to Decline Them?

I've been getting alot of link exchange requests lately. We have a link directory that was posted on the site when I took it over from awhile back. Alot of the exchange requests that I'm getting are: link to this site from your site and we will place a link over here for you on this other site, which is usually some web directory with tons and tons of links and is completley unrelated to the site that is requesting the link from me.

Am I doing the right thing be declining these link requests?

Yes, I just delete them. People want a decent link from a decent site in exchange for a link on a poor directory.

You are going to get irrelevant link requests.. its the nature of the web. Consider an editor based link management software that will store the pending links in a queue for your approval or rejection. That way you don't miss opportunities from quality sites relevant to your own.

Just adding my vote to the first reply.

3 way links dont work and are not to be encouraged. So just ignore them

Thanks, for tips. I agree it seem kind of fishy to me. I've spent a lot of time actually removing some of the links from the links page that seemed to be of poor quality.
