Web Link Request Examples
The focus of the first e-mail is not obviously to ask me to link a page of mine to their site. Instead, it's information about why are linking to me, implying that my site has met some kind of high standard. And flattery will get you very far online... It also notes EXACTLY which page they are linking to, and which page they would like to have a link from.
Our goal is to be brief but informative, entertaining but useful, both accessible and convenient. As you well know, there is both great stuff and awful stuff on the web about dogs; we try to sort the wheat from the chaff for our readers. We save people's time.
