So now that you all know my Bitch of the day here's the 64,000 Dollar Question.??? HOW or WHAT is the BEST way to handle such predicaments..? I've sent them 2 very polite follow up notices now, approx. 5 days apart asking them to please Reply etc. etc..! WHATS NEXT..????? How much longer should I give them before I give `em the Shank (Yank Their Link )..?!?!?
You know trying to attain these links are difficult enough as it is, let alone going round having to play Patty Cake....with some of these AAAAA.....asparagus holes out there..:o.!!!!!!
Anyone Shed some light on THIS..??? How have others Dealt with this similar situation..???
Your Feedback is Profoundly Appreciated.!!!
My advice, having been on both sides of this issue: First, send a nice e-mail pointing out that they promised a link, but you haven't seen it yet... would they kindly follow through.
After a couple of weeks, I'd hit them with a more stern e-mail, suggesting that if they don't eithe reply or fix your link, their link will be deleted. After a couple more weeks, I'd either send a FINAL NOTICE e-mail or just delete the link. It's almost like collecting a bill - start off polite, but eventually let the other guy know you mean business.
If the link is particularly valuable, e.g., a PR 8 site, you might want to try a telephone contact or some other means. If it's not important, whack it and move on.
Send them a notice when you first put up their link, letting them know that their link will be on temporary status for 30 days, and will be moved to permanaent status as soon as they provide a reciprocal link.
Send out these notices on the first of every month, make a note of who you sent them to, and on the last day of the month, delete everyone who hasn't linked back.
This would be great so as not to have to do it manually. We've been testing a few that we've found but just thought I'd see if anyone knew of any others.
