In a post called, Server location, cross-linking, and Web 2.0 technology thoughts, Greg Grothaus and Shashi Thakur reflect and provide their take on Searchonomics 2007.

Cross- Linking

“Before you begin cross-linking sites, consider the user's perspective and whether the crosslinks provide value. If the sites are related in business — e.g., an auto manual site linking to an auto parts retail site, then it could make sense — the links are organic and useful. Cross-linking between dozens or hundreds of sites, however, probably doesn't provide value, and I would not recommend it.”
