Sorry for the Ramble here everybody but, I just had to let off some steam...And maybe, just maybe I would feel alittle better if I knew that there was anybody else out there that has felt like this before...???? And if so then how do you deal with it....?!?!?!?
Has anybody else ever gone thru anything similar to this..???
Ya know I`ll be the "first" to admit that Im NOT the most patient man in the world, but I find it EXTREMELY aggravating to sit here for 10+ hours at a time Chasing after 4 or 5 links..!!! BUT I know there NO way around it either...... I think THATS what really Pisses me off the most....!!!!!
Sorry for the Ramble.!!!!
Better: Get a shotgun and some old teevees, dead computer monitors, etc. A watermelon is awfully satisfying, but the dead appliances are free.
You could paste over the screens with printouts of screenshots from the sites that never wrote back to you.

I would recommend that you just spend one hour a day on it and spend your other time on other valuable persuits/avenues. Just chip away at the stone and every month your links will increase. Use some of the 10-12 hours you are spending on soliciting links to create the unique content related to your industry that only you can create. You may find other "on theme" web masters contacting you for links as a result. Water the roots of the tree and the branches and leaves will thrive and take care of themselves eventually planting seeds of their own.
option two: Buy a bigger bat.

All the time looking for links, niche on topic directories and the like.
Then when you notch another point of PR and move up in the SERPs it all seems worth it.

I do the same, but I rarely look for links. I do it about once a month
I keep adding to my site, and by the end of the month, a short time when Im happy with content, I'll go hunting for links
As my site has changed, ill make a unique 'cut and paste' letter, which I hope sounds personal enough not to be a spam-like email
I work down Google, i.e. type in biology and work my way down. I would say around 10% of the people I ask reply, and perhaps another 10% dont read the email because they dont maintain the site anymore. I guess another % are the wrong people at the site to contact, and dont follow through with my request. As for the other 70%, well, they probably didnt like my site or didnt bother with the effort required.
Apart from that, good search engine listings 'should' = more webmasters linking to your relevant content
The way I see it, its like the avalanche effect. In the beginning, the sole factor (i.e. you making the site) causes the avalanche. If this site carries clout, then who is to get in the way of your avalanche? :)
rubbish analogy, but the principal is true :)
happy cutting n pasting!:)
Many Thanks go out to --->>>
brotherhood of LAN
Your Feedback is Profoundly Appreciated !!!!
And to top it all off then you have the ones that Require you to give them a link to "Their Site" and then they will give one back to you "So they say"..... Problem with this is allot of the time "THEY Never" Seem to get around to doing it...!!!!!! So then I have to put them down on what I have dubbed "My HOT LIST" the ones that I have provided to link to but never one back in return..!!! So then I have to mail them back a few days later, see if they still wanted to make the Exchange, wait to hear from them, and if not mail them once more, on and on, blah blah blah..... What a pain in the....AAAA......rear..!!!!
Again .... Thanks everyone..!!!
I am new to this online linking and search engines, and right now I am trying to promote my site. I do feel the way you do, it is quite overwhelming to say the least.
I spend hours searching and linking and at times I have found that they don't even bother to add your url.
Search engines take forever, and linking is much work :(.
Well best of luck to you Village, just thought I would comment.
At least this way, you should get more actual links added, although I find the value of them can be wildly variable
