...and this morning I just got an email from a professor at a prestigious university here in the states saying that he is adding our site to his links and resources page, which happens to be on that university's .edu site.
I love getting emails like that first thing in the morning!
Not bad considering it took all of about 5 minutes to find some broken links on his site and send out an email out to him. One day turnaround - Nice!
The great thing about it, aside from the Page Rank, it is it will give me more leverage when I request other sites to link to me. I can now say, "By the way, professor XYZ from ABC university has also linked to this page." Now I can go to all the sites that link to the professor's site and mention to them that since the Prof is linking to me, maybe they should, too.
I just have to figure out a way to do it politely, so it sounds more authoritative without being confrontational... any suggestions?
