Establishing Industry Contacts You can Share Information with in the Future

This is especially true with large batches of link requests as when some webmasters respond with an offer to trade links they may reveal that they know people or things that are relevant to your industry. Many people with poorly designed low traffic sites wield a lot of influence in the offline world relevant to your business. If your site is of a technical nature involving some sort of unique knowledge these contacts could prove very helpful as you have questions relevant to your site or to topics of interest to your visitors.
