How to get links from established sites?
If you are campaigning for a new site

 3:29 am on Nov 5, 2004 (gmt 0)

With webmasters/ site owners becoming obsessed with linking only to high PR it becoming tough for new sites to get links from established sites.

Most of the time there is no response though the "add-a-link" script exists and sometimes "we link only to PR4 pages" replies.

At the same time linking experts are advising from all corners of the reputed forums that never mind the PR, if a website is clean and offers good content link to it.

Why this snobbery then? What extra appeal should be there in your link reuest that convinces a snob webmaster to link to a fellow new site?

Any thoughts?

Have you tried getting links from sites with zero pr?

How to get links from established sites?

No offense intended, and perhaps you didn't intend for it to be interpreted this way, but the question betrays the same snobbery because it rules out non-established sites as link partners.

If you don't have your own network of websites to give PR to your new website, and you don't have colleagues who can do it for you, you can still acquire PR from established sites providing that your website has something useful to offer.

Not all websites have something useful to offer. Some websites are money machines, and that's fine. Nothing bad about that. However, if you want to have a money machine and PR, you have to have a network to seed it to get the ball rolling.

So I would suggest building some websites with something to offer then feeding your new sites with that to get the ball rolling. Yeah, it takes some work...

Forgot to mention that purchasing links is also an option.
