    So a webmaster approached me to do 3-way link exchange. I link to his new website from an article and he gives me a link on his 16yo website. The thing is...his 16yo has high authority but is not getting much traffic from Google and my site is getting a good amount from google. Is this link exchange beneficial to me?

    I was thinking that it would be good to improve my DA but then I began thinking what is the point of his high DA if google doesn't like his site.

    Link exchange in SEO is used for increasing the web traffic for the site. It is nothing but the link of one site to another site that is reciprocal link.

    You should link to the page which has high authority and rank. It is helpful to find the valuable contents. It is helpful for incoming traffic.

    Be very careful getting this kind of links from sites that look good, but do not get much traffic. That's just some kind of a glorified PBN-wannabe-guest post site. No traffic = no party.

    Little traffic does not mean google does not like the site. When google does not like a site it will not be indexed. Not all decent sites can have high traffic.

    So yes it is a good deal if it is high DA, assuming you check this 16 years old site is clean.

    edit: one word of caution it depends also how this webmaster contacted you; if this is a mass email, then usually it is a bad idea; better if this is someone you know somehow than a total stranger, as he will do too many such swaps with random sites.
