Name Links4Trade
Site http://www.links4trade.com/
Type Service. Your link pages live on their server.
Cost $39.95 + $7.95 per month
Links4Trade lets you easily exchange links with its thousands of members. It's especially handy because your link pages are hosted on their web server. However, this can also be a major problem - search engines will see the reciprocal links to your site from Links4Trade members as coming from the Links4Trade server (which has thousands of links on it) rather than from the site that you've exchanged links with itself. This may be more or less of a problem depending on the search engine and how they curently have their algorithms tweaked, but given the cost, the value of this service is questionable.

Name LinksManager
Site http://www.linksmanager.com/
Type Service
Cost $19.95 to $49.95 per month
LinksManager is almost like hiring a helper to take care of your link exchanges. It's very easy to install and use. However its price would put it out of reach for many webmasters. Also it's lacking in the ability to find and contact potential link partners. LinkManager would be most useful for a popular web site that already has a steady stream of visitors who would like to exchange links. And while LinksManager doesn't allow users to link up with each other, its affiliated LinkPartners.com service takes care of this.
