Was chatting with Martinibuster today (thanks!) and got re-energized in link building, specifically link begging. I've been having some difficulties getting links these days, so I'm going old school again. Here's what I'm doing over the next month.
1) I'm going looking in the really old 2000 era directories specific to my niche. 2) I'm going to run Xenu link sleuth on the directories to find broken links (again, these will be links to sites in my niche). i.e. I'll build a list of defunct sites in my niche. 3) I'm going to find sites that link TOO those defunct sites, i.e. busted links on other sites. 4) I'm going link begging. Basically saying "hey, you got a busted link. And while you're fixing your web page, howzabout hookin' me up?'.
There's a site I've been wanting a link from for years, found a busted link on it tonite. He's going to get his third link request email from me tomorrow :).

interesting. but other than that no possible issues? quite honestly, im not perfectly sure how the www works in-depth..but i remember reading some stuff that "spamming" could get your site in trouble in other ways..and that plenty of people out there consider "any unsolicited e-mail" as spam (I don't agree with that view, but if people still label you as spam..).
I mean if this was a major issue, i probably would have heard about it by now, just wondering if it's a potential risk to be aware of.

I have to say that this is quite inventive and a really smart way to go about getting a link. I know I'm new around here but just wanted to say that I have taken this down and already started the process. If I get any good results I will post them here.
