Does anyone else do them? Seems to be getting harder and harder to find creators that do link exchanges.

I do, but only if I actually read the comic, because I consider it an endorsement.

I think yours is the only comic I've link exchanged with, Tony. I used to get more offers but I hardly hear anything about them anymore. Are people now fixated on Facebook likes instead?

Being new to the webcomic creators community, I haven't had the chance of exchanging links yet but I'm willing to do so unless I really dislike the comic in question.

To be fair though, a known comic would have little advantage to be linked by me for the time being due to the relatively low traffic on my site but as my readership grows, that will become something I'd like to partake in. Smile

My sites are always open for trades, but I need to read the comic I am trading with first.

If you EVER want to trade links with either one of my comics, let me know. I read your stuff religiously.

I'm thinking about doing link exchanges with similar comics to my own as well. To be honest, the whole networking thing has me a bit stumped!

Depending on the comic, and the quality of the website I would certainly be interested in doing an exchange.

I think link exchanges are a bit of a sticky wicket in terms of manners. Everyone wants to be linked to as much as possible, but may not like the comics linking to them well enough to want to link back. That's a two-way street with awkward social discomfort at either end.

You're not required to link back to someone who links to you. There are some that I link to that don't link back to me, and some that link to me that I don't link back to.

I separate mutual linking from comics that I just link to on my Links page. I give the ones I'm trading with a short description so it isn't just a name on a page. In my own case, the best clickers-into-readers rates I've had have been from sites talking me up.

I know not everyone separates this, but I like to have the distinction.

If there was never an initial conversation about linking in the first place, there's no obligation. If someone emails you and asks but you haven't read theirs or just don't want to, let them down gently.
