Hello buddy ,
Quality sites need to link together.. don’t you agree? I can give you a
high quality content page link from my site
(http://www.creditreportkey.com). In addition both our sites are
vertically related. I am sure you are aware of content page link plays a
major role in SEO.
Kindly add my link in your content pages other than the links page.your
site is a quality site hence I need a content link from your website.
If you said yes, then I need your link text and URL to get this started.If
no,I am really sorry to have been a disturbance.I promise,this will not
We also offer free download of xp icons in our website. I hope this will
also be useful to you.
Link Title : Credit Report Key
Link Url : http://www.creditreportkey.com/
Awaiting for your word,
Why would anybody in the world ever need to visit any OTHER site?!
I'll link to nobody else, from now on!
(And don't worry, Peter - your super-secret's safe with me!)
And what's the deal with the "vertically related" part, anyway? The business-jargon usage of "vertical" is supposed to mean every stage of a business from production to distribution, hence the concept of vertical integration; "vertically related" businesses would be, say, a flour factory and a bakery. The word seems to have turned into cant, though; now it just means "stuff that's related to other stuff". So you get ad agencies spouting things like "high bidded content in your vertical", as if their purpose were not to actually communicate an idea but just to win a game of Scrabble.
The above missive arrived right next to this other magnificent creation:

Dansdata, [I do love that personal touch!]
I visited your site today, and I enjoy the information your provide. I
run an adult site similar to yours, and I was wondering if you would
like to trade links with me? You can see my site at
"http://www.hotescortreviews.com". I ask for this link exchange because
I feel our sites are closely related in topic, and a link exchange
would benefit us both. My website also has a page rank of 2.
If you exchange links with me, I will list you on my site. I can put
your banner/link on my directory page
here:http://www.hotescortreviews.com/HERDirectory.html, and I can put
you in a category which is related to your site. Our site is gaining
more visitors by the week, and getting your link on my site guarantees
you future traffic and customers, which increases your bottom line.
Please let me know if you have any questions or comments. If you wish
to add my link, you can add the HTML code below to your site:
