How do I find people willing to put links on their sites?
Links?

I am having a really tough time finding people to put paid text links on their sites so i can increase the SE ranks. Currently, I manually visit websites and get their webmasters info and send emails, but that hasn't been very successful so far. Anybody have any ideas?

Try Google. Use appropriate search terms. They're out there.

I have tried using Google to find them, but most of the people I find are charging way to much for websites that are pretty crummy and already packed with ads. I usually want sites with a PageRank of 2-4, but these sites never have that. <REMOVED SOLICITATION>

Your problem is that you are not searching with the correct terms.

Here's a hint:
Use search modifiers such as
-CPM (to weed out CPM advertising opportunities, as those aren't neccessarily straight links)

Use your imagination, think about it. Then get out there and turn over some rocks in the right places.

I agree with you. It needs two or three hours to find 30-50 emails. I have sites with different niche and for some of them sending emails just don't work and for other I got one link from 20 emails or something. So for two-three hours I just get one link, usually ranked less than PR5 and bring almost no traffic at all :(.

Have any of you guys had any luck using other strategies? Please shoot off any ideas you might have here.

I think the most effective way is talking to them directly. Exchange all your links with what they have.

Instead of requesting a link exchange, why don\'t you try to find ways to offer a content exchange? If your site is useful and unique, you should be able to find some sites that could use your content to compliment their content. Then you provide them with an RSS feed or something more custom.

I like the idea of maximillianos!

You can try out this and see what is the response rate that you recieve from other sites.

Mostly related and emerging sites will give you higher conversion rates as compared to already established sites in the industry.

But your effective link building strategy should be a mix and match of various techniques, which ensure you get the links from the new and the old/established sites as well.
