I seem to get alot of offers from people offering to do subdomain link exchanges..what I mean by this is I would get a list of sites..for example:

http://blue.widget1.com/addsite.html
http://green.widget1.com/addsite.html
http://yellow.widget1.com/addsite.html
http://blue.widget2.com/addsite.html
http://green.widget2.com/addsite.html

etc..etc..my question is..Will doing link exchanges with these sites actually help me? Or is this a waste of time because they are just subdomains for the regular domain. Any advice is greatly appriciated!

Check the PR on those subdomains.
If they are decent and contain related content it would be worth it.

If they are pr0 and only exist as a place to put backlinks you shouln't bother.

Maybe if it was developed properly, with content, search engine friendly pages, etc, it would be worthwhile. Still, most sites seem to link to http://www.widget.com rather than the subdomain. Check to see if there are links from the main site to the subdomain.

thanks for the info. When you speak of the PR are you reffering to the PR of the main directory page..or the pr of the categorie in which my link will be placed?

It's a pure marketing, everybody will tell you their main page PR as this is usually the highest. But you should be particulry interested in PR of the page your link is placed on. However in time sub-pages get some PR boost on the basis of the main page.

And another thing is direct/in-driect links which is more important. Direct links like in my Polish web directory are more valuable than links like go_to.php?link=26.

Regards,
