I just got a link request from someone claiming to represent some "adult" dating sites.

"She" claimed to want an ABC link where I would link to one site and another site would link to me.

To send this message, they had to go to my Links page and click the Contact Us button and use my form to send the email to me.

My site has nothing to do with "Adult Personal". I run a site with festival information and links to a large affiliate marketer.

I am not going to do the link, but I wanted the opinion of those here.

Thanks
Barry

An opinion about whether you should do it or not?

Or more likely they've scraped sites looking for the form and are auto submitting them using a program :).

"Or more likely they've scraped sites..." Agreed. Site scraper looking for anyone to reply. Sorry...

Thanks for the quick replies. So the best thing is not to reply at all instead of graceously declining?

I don't reply at all because I don't even want the person to know I've seen the request. But then again, I'm not the norm here because I only give and accept natural links.

I think you should entertain and reply that message. Obviously the guy wanted to trade links. And links are the best way to get into the first page and get more visits with your sites. But i suggest that only related topic must be link in your site otherwise you'll get penalize. Go and Ask that webmaster if he have other sites. Be cool and open to new ideas.

Don't be a fool. The only reciprocal linking you want to get involved in is the type you initiate. Otherwise, you're the mark.

We are not fools here that will link to a link farm like site. Use your initiative. Try to look the sites they are offering.
