For every pro there is usually a con lurking somewhere. Before moving forward with a project it's important to dig around for the cons. Here is one to consider:
1. Negative publicity
This is probably the biggest reason why it's important to keep a client's name confidential. Some people, many people, hate getting contacted about links, period. What if the contactee has a freakout that the client is spamming them?
Asking the client to make the initial outreach can be like sending them out into a minefield blindfolded. There are many bad things that can happen to them as a consequence.
For every pro there is at least one con. Any more cons to consider?
