Link Exchange Requests – Don’t You Just Love ‘Em?

As the owner of various long established authority sites, I’m often inundated with requests such as these:

Dear Webmaster

As you know that exchanging links nowadays has become quite popular (really?) Most of the Webmasters are always in search for good quality High Page Rank and theme based sites to exchange links with. As a part of ongoing campaign to increase the Link Popularity of some of my client’s sites I am looking for some good potential sites like yours.I would request you to consider my following sites to Exchange links.

Please add my Link at your link page.

Title: xxxxxxxxx (changed to protect the unimaginative)
URL: xxxxxxxxx (he would be so lucky)
Description: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Your link will be added at following URL : xxxxxxxxxx (URL has been blocked by Robots.txt)

Kindly also drop me a line regarding Title/Description to be used while placing your links at my above-mentioned sites.

Hoping an early and positive response from your side.

Best Regards


I’m sure readers have received similar. Many times.

Well Tim, as overwhelmed as I am at the opportunity to link to a site not even remotely connected to the topics of my sites, forgive me if I don’t leap at the chance. Instead, if you’re reading, here’s some advice on how to get linked to from all over the web without even having to ask:

Do something interesting.

Can’t think of anything?

    Yes, it’s a good, easy read with a few valuable insights.

    It’s not a new idea and can be summarised “There is little value in doing the same things others do. Try to be unique. Try to be worth remarking upon”.

    I will read “Purple Cow” later on. In the meantime I made a link to your blog in my Emarketing resources section without any hassle.

    Hi There,

    My name is Chris Angus, I am the webmaster for removed.
    I came across your site whilst looking for other internet businesses and thought it might be a good idea if you offer your visitors a link from you site ours.

    As previously mentioned, we would be ever so grateful if you could offer us a link.

    I have attached the the link so you can simply cut and past it into your home page.

    This is a one time mailing, you are not on any list.

    Kind Regards
