Be Careful Of Unsolicited Link Requests Through Email

I received an email two weeks ago from someone called Abbie who asked me if I would be interested in exchanging links with her. The deal would be that I put a link on this blog advertising her job web site and in return she would put a link advertising this blog on two of her writing web sites.

Both her writing web sites have a Page Rank of 1 & 2. So I thought it would be a good deal for me, as I have a Page Rank of 0, and it would be a good deal for her as she gets traffic from people looking for ways to work.

I placed the link and waited patiently for her to do the same. But she never did. I waited about a week before emailing her and politely enquiring about the links. Her reply was very nice and she explained how she had forgotten, it happens to us all at some point.

She asked me to change the anchor text and the URL of the link to another job site off hers. This was done within minutes.

Another week has passed and still no links have appeared on her sites concerning this blog.

So I’ve removed her link and will now no longer accept links of this nature.
