I have a few "mom & dad" websites. Very niche and small.
I'm getting link removal requests for links that were requested (sometimes I agreed sometime I didn't)... and for links that were not requested and which I wanted on my website.
Firstly I had some fun with the SEO companies telling them to pay a small fee for removing the links (if they can pay a SEO company to contact me, they can pay me for my work I told them).
Finally I'm simply ignoring these emails. It's my website and I link -or not, as always-, whatever I consider relevant.
"Link removal requests" have gone too far. It's like they're panicking.
