How to Write Reciprocal Link Request Email ?

 

I was expanding my brother’s fish business websites - AquariumFishExporter.com. One of the SEO way of bringing up the position in search engines is building up the Reciprocal link database.

What is Reciprocal Link?

A reciprocal link is a mutual link between two objects, commonly between two websites in order to ensure mutual traffic. Example: PohEe.com have websites. If Shally’s website links to PohEe’s website, and PohEe’s website links to Shally’s website, these websites are reciprocally linked.

Back to the business, I saw a lot of nice Fish Information sites and I would like to link up with them. The easiest way is sending them a Reciprocal Link Request Email. I am lazy to write it from scratch, so I google it a bit with keyword "Reciprocal Link Request Email". I am glad to find a website on sharing all the email template for Reciprocal Link Request Email.

Here is some of the templates by David Callan:
