    Yeah, it does work but you have to be very careful though. Means, you have to do it smartly otherwise google algorithm can penalize both the websites. One of my sites was penalized about a year ago. Since then I am avoiding link exchange as much as possible.

    Simply put, reciprocal links are against Google's Webmaster Guidelines. If your site is abusing backlinks – if you're trying to manipulate search seo results by exchanging links your website runs a high risk of being penalized by Google.

    Link exchanges are easy to track. And when you get penalized all the efforts will go for a toss.

    So its better to invest your time on other strategies.

    Hello

    Most conventional SEO's (especially those who aren't deeply involved with the hyperlink building distance ) would strongly counsel against all kinds of link exchanges. It's correct, exchanging and swapping connections is an extremely divisive topic at search engine optimization and also links the construction community, and also most pros choose to use different strategies.

    Links get relevant traffic --> Good idea
    Links only for SEO --> Bad idea
