1) Can you post a template or layout of what you sent to the professors, to ask for the link?
2) Can you give us an idea of the type of content that you created that got the interest of the professors?
1) I don't use a template. I address them all personally, and they get 'Dr' where appropriate. I reference the specific page I want a link from, and the site I want a link to. Then I tell them why it's to the benefit of their visitors to have a link to my site. I write them all by hand, and vary it based on what is on the site I'm contacting.
