Traffic Trades & Bounce Rates

What's everyone's thoughts on traffic trades as far as bounce rates these days?

Back in the day, I never did trades with sites that wanted to blindlink back to me - most will just close the window/tab & go back. Pointless.

These days, I take what I can get Overall, GA says my bounce rate for LOR is 61.90% - I assume that's good since most of my traffic starts on the index/warning or main page.

So, anything under 61.90% would be considered good, right? 7 of my Top 20 are, including one that's just 13%

But 7 of my top 20 referrers (just link/traffic trades) are over 90-95% and that's bad, right?

Seeing as I rank the position of a trade based on incoming traffic, it dawned on me that I'm sending back as much legit traffic I can via a clicked non-blonde text link, which isn't fair, right? Maybe I should rank them based on their traffic & bounce rate? Like:
4000 hits from Website A with a bounce rate of 80% = 800
3000 hits from Website B with a bounce rate of 90% = 300
2000 hits from Website C with a bounce rate of 60% = 1200
1000 hits from Website D with a bounce rate of 50% = 500

So they be listed C A D B instead of how I do it now (A B C D)

I just want to know what everyone's general thoughts on this are

I use a trade script to track and rank, uses traffic stats over the prior 24 hours, reranks every 30 minutes. Rank is based on number of outgoing clicks from the referrer traffic.

Yes, that is what allows the tracking of outgoing traffic. TE3 is Trade Expert 3.3

Does tracking them like that have a negative or lower SE effect because you're linking to http://www.stocking-vixens.com/TE3/o...eled-women.com & not http://www.well-heeled-women.com/tgp.php ?

Based on the old thinking on "hard links" it would not be considered a link out for SE purposes. I'm not sure that's really all that critical any longer, incoming links are far more relevant, and those will still be tracked by Google as incoming to well-heeled-women from stocking-vixens.
