"I just searched in Google for  XXXX online and found wwwmydomainname
co.uk ranked 67. I have a related website about XXXXX that's purely
informational (so I'm NOT a competitor of yours) and I'd like to link
to your site.

I consider my site to be one of the best resources for this type of
information. I get a decent amount of visitors to it so if I link to
you, your site should get some decent traffic from it.

I only link to good quality sites... I think you'll find my site to be
high quality as well. In exchange, I would ask that you also link to
my site. I've already linked to you and will keep it there for a few
days until I hear from you. Please let me know asap if you're
interested and i'll send you my information.


Have had another of these in recent days. On further request the link
info was odd - link to a different site that the link was on. I think
its pretty scammy to be honest and not a straightforward link swap so
I don't want to have anything to do with it. What do others think?

Also the site "not a direct competitor" was a bit wrong too.

I've been spammed via different domains with emails that began with the
following text:

" Dear Portal Administration!

I have recently come across your site and liked it very much.
I suppose that the visitors of our resources belong to the same
social group and my site could be useful for your  audience so I
suggest to exchange our links."

It was obvious they hadn't visited any of my sites, and the sites in question
were totally unrelated to any of mine. I don't regard this as any better than
normal spam simply because I have a domain. I have never gone by the name of

I mention this mainly because there could be people reading this NG who are
considering doing something similar.
