    Banner Exchanges ?

    I'm looking over a few banner exchanges, and I'm wondering whether they're worth my time. I'm guessing that with a really good banner design it will work, even if poorly. With a bit of testing I should find one or two that work out ok.

    Has anyone had a good experience with banner exchanges ?

    no. TEXT link exchanges work 100 times better.

    Text for pure traffic, or for SEO ?

    I would be willing to try a link or banner exchange.

    The site that I would like to promote is PSPMod.com and that would be the same site where I can promote your text/banner link.

    But it's exactly what you're asking for. Text/banner link.

    So you want to trade exchange links or banners?

    You could try out www.LinkBuddies.com, but click-through rates are generally very low 0.0x%. This type of advertising just doesn't work very well anymore.

    If you'd prefer textlink exchanges, some good ones are www.txtlinks.com, www.plainlinks.com, and www.keywordexchange.com.

    I have heard this advice from a lot of sources but I wonder why Text links is considered generally to be better? Please explain.

    Most web surfers have learned not to pay any attention to banner ads, since they are ovbious advertisements - thus the low click through rate.

    Text links, on the other hand, can be worked into your content and are a lot more subtle. They look less like blatant ads, and more like a part of the site.

    An other great thing about text links is that if they are reciprocal, will help your SEO
