This is something I've often thought about but never got around to asking. How do you persuade someone to exchange links with you, or get even luckier and get them to put up a link without requiring you to do the same? What I want is a nuts and bolts answer please, like how to phrase your email request. I'm yet to receive one myself out of the blue that made me want to add their link. What do you find offputting? For me it's pushiness. There's a fine line between being a go-getter and a pain in the butt. :laugh: Is it really worth the time to find relevant sites or is that time better spent just submitting your link to directories?
