Is it good to link to .ORG sites?

Hello everyone,

I cant remember when but i heard mark talking about .edu links are good to have when you are trying to build a authority site.

I have been contacted by a .ORG website with a PR of 7 for a link exchange -im not stupid (i have done the obvious) and have traded links.

are .ORG sites also good to link to?
and another thing, my site is high quality with a lot of content but has PR of 0 why would a .ORG site with a PR of 7 want to link to my site?

.org domain names are easy to come by; you can just buy a .org domain from any merchant who sells domains ( unlike .edu domains for which one will have to go through a qualifying process ). This means that not all .org domains are good to link to. If the .org site you are linking to is of high quality and rank and it has relevance to your website, then it's good.

a blogroll is just a list of links people use on a blog. I have a blogroll listing my favorite blogs, my favorite websites, and some affiliate products I promote with my blog. its ok but does not get a lot of clicks. It probably will vary with different niche markets, but I have not seen a lot of traffic using my blogroll.
