Is link exchange still effective? I am a newbie and according to some articles that i have read this was all you had to do to get high rankings and high PR. Is it true?

Any PageRank-oriented SEO philosophy is second-rate at best.

You might want to check out the [url=http://www.highrankings.com/forum/index.php/topic/833-tips-for-new-seos/]Tips for Newbies[/url] section in the forum here.

It may also cause a penalty to your site. I will suggest you not to go for it.
Give a reason to users to link to your site naturally. That's the only thing that will help you in ranking.

hunh? A penalty from what? Why do you think asking someone to link to your site would attract a penalty?

That's one of those words that simply gets thrown around too much IMHO.

Exchanging links with similar sites is not a bad thing. It's really not!

What is not helpful is exchanging links with sites that exchange links with anyone and everyone and have nothing to do with your site.

Take a minute to read this over Reciprocal Linking vs Mutual Linking

May I know why ? Is it for SEO purposes ? Or just because links from sites similar to ours send some direct traffic?

I think it has to do with one site or cluster of sites being identified as spamming sites and gets deindexed by Google. The extent of your site's relationship to the penalized sites can damage your ranking as well.

How do you get other sites to see your site and then 'naturally' link to you? You can have a great website and product but still no-one will see it unless it has some good links and high ranking on the search engines.

You have to market it. Good old fashioned marketing, PR and advertising.
