    None, link exchange is part of a link building strategy, but that's old school!

    As already said one can be part of the other. Reciprocal links (I link to you, you link to me) have less SEO weight than one-way links though.

    Do you use Facebook ? Then you can make money just by inviting people to a Facebook group ! It's called the Instant Income System. How cool is that?

    When some one put a link in others site in order to get a link from that site it is called link bulding process.
    When two sites agreed to exchange the links with each other it is called link exchange .

    Of course there is differences.
    Link building is actually free of cost effort. You can do link building by yourself for your site.

    Where Link Exchange needs you to put someone's website link to your website if you want to put a link of your website to one's website. Also you need to check it regularly to find your link is still there. It's not SEO friendly.

    No. Link exchange is one of types of link building. It means exchange your link with which site has been related to your site and vice versa.

    Link building is basically the act of spreading your website's link so that it can be scattered around the web in the hopes that many people will find them and eventually visit your site. This also helps in increasing your page rank when it comes to the search engines.

    Link exchange on the other hand is a link building technique wherein an owner of a certain website communicates with other website owners so that they can "Exchange links" thereby promoting each other's websites.

    Link exchange happens when two reputed companies come together with a deal to exchange their links, which means to make their links appear on each other sites. This helps both the companies to drive traffic from their target audiences.
    Link building on the other hand is one of the SEO techniques that is used to create quality backlinks to a website to boost their ranking on the search engines

      Yes, what appkodes said. Be cautious of too many link exchanges. The word is that link exchanges may possibly lead to some type of penalty by Google (but of course, Google will never say exactly how their algorithm works).

    Link exchange is a part of link building. In link building we get backlinks from different website but in link exchange we need to put other website link to our website.

    Link Building and link exchange both are SEO techniques that we Implement for search engine ranking of our website but only link building is white hat and natural techniques and link exchange is kind of spamming and penalize by algorithms of Google search engine, so constraint only link building for stable results.

      Nah, the feel of them. Link building is sweaty, you wouldn't like hugging it. Link exchange is cuddly and warm. You'd like hugging it.

    Link building is the process where you go out to other websites across the internet and through various methods and get them to link to one of the pages on your website.
    Link exchange is the process when you would simply as a website owner to link to your website and would offer you to do the same for them.
