How Not to Do Link Emails

There is a right way and a wrong way to solicit link requests. This is the anatomy of the WRONG way….

Dear Sir,

My name is [name removed] and I invite you to take a short break from your work and visit my new site at http://www.xxxxx.com http://www.xxxxx.in, http://www.xxxxx.com , http://www.xxxxx.com, http://www.xxxxx.com http://www.xxxxx.com/ http://www.xxxxx.com http://www.xxxxx.com

OK, first of all this isn’t a short break. Gaurav wants me to check out not one new site, but eight of them. I don’t think so.

Enjoy it for a while!…Ok, that is enough! What do you think? If you like itand if it fits to your link collection, please get back to work and exchange links with my http://www.xxxxx.com http://www.xxxxx.com http://www.xxxxx.in http://www.xxxxx.com http://www.xxxxx.com http://www.xxxxx.com http://www.xxxxx.com/ http://www.xxxxx.com

Hmmm. Nice attempt at some humor, but it fails. Secondly, I don’t have a “link collection”. You won’t find such a thing on my site, so I know he didn’t visit. Had he visited he would have known that we gladly exchange great article content, but not just links.

Another annoying thing, all the URLs above were linked. Why duplicate them? Did he think I forgot?

Please add my link on your site and let me know where I can find it (send me also your site details so I can link back as soon as possible).
Or send me your site details and I will take the first step in the link exchange process (but for that, you have to send me also the URL of the page where you intend to place my link).

Our reciprocal link page are

http://www.xxxxx.com/links.htm
http://www.xxxxx.com/links.htm
http://www.xxxxx.com/links.htm
http://www.xxxxx.com/links.htm
http://www.xxxxx.com/links1.php
http://www.xxxxx.in/links.php
http://www.xxxxx.com/free_links.php
etc.

Ug! Too many words, and more links! What are these instructions that I don’t understand?

If you agree with the link exchange I am proposing, please add the following details on your site:

This is way too much information for a first email. Seriously. This email is all about you. There is nothing here about why I should link to these sites. No reason is given why this would be beneficial to me or my visitors. This is the equivalent of someone standing on the road with a megaphone demanding that I care about their cause. Guess what? I don’t. Now, if you want to give me a reason to care, and even better, find out more about me so you know why I should care, well then, maybe you’ll have a chance at convincing me.
