    That would be like giving a hug to a person you know is backstabbing you. Would you want to be doing business with someone that doesnt support you? I think it's just a matter of principle. I personally would not.

    If he were higher ranking than me I would prefer to snoop on his keywords and find out which ones he's getting the higher rank on

    It because your link is relevant to their site, so they willing to make such offer. Yahoo and Bing are competitor, but they can work together. If it is benefit to us, we should exchange it.

    A link exchange isn't worth much any more, so no. The best links are one way.

    I wouldn't exchange free links, but if the competitor paid a lot more than original price, than I would put a link on my site.

    I wouldn't change no cost hyperlinks, but if the competition compensated a lot more than unique cost, than I would put a hyperlink on my website.
