Requesting links from webmasters

Hi guys,

I am in the process of requesting links from sites through emails, and i remeber seeing a video lesson on here I think, it explained what to say to other webmasters when you want to request a link. Is it on here or have you guys got any ideas, what do you say when contacting these people?

Thanks
Wes

Hey MacDee,

It is best to contact the webmaster with a message that is somewhat personal. Most people will be able to tell if the message is automate or like it is coming from a program. Also I woul suggest to place a link to their site before you ask for the exchange.

Yeh, just write something that makes them think that you've actually looked at their site.
