The issue with man-made link exchanges is that you need to cycle and check
to see that links remain alive and are not rel="nofollow". The time spent
bargaining an exchange and then maintaining regular checks is ridiculous. I
try spending more time working on the sites rather than negotiate in order
to fool an algorithm.

I don't think I have a single IBL that was properly negotiated. I tend to
just get links from friends or readers (without request) and often do
likewise. Friends and readers never beyray you either, link-wise. You can
sometimes link to a site and in due time find a 'handshake' without
exchanging a single word. I hope you know what I am referring to...
