Reciprocal linking - click-for-click
Reciprocal linking is accomplished when two sites agree to link together for the purpose of exchanging traffic. Sort of a 'you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours' effect.
can I do this with my site?
After all, you will want to show him/her just how it will be to their advantage to exchange links with you, and will be a win/win situation for you both. Some webmasters won't even answer your email -- but don't take it personally. Simply move on to the next site, find the "contact us" button and send the email to them. You might go through a bunch of sites before you find one that will say okay. This, to me, means there IS intelligent life out there after all.
you want to know what to put in the email.
So, send this out to a couple of sites you'd like to link to. Give them at least one week to respond (webmasters are busy-busy-busy). After this time, if you don't get an ok, scratch that webmaster's page and send the same email to another.
NOTE: If you get a lot of negative responses, rewrite the email and send it out again. Don't be shy. Hey, the worst that can happen will be "no response" or that dreaded "no". But you'll have the satisfaction that at least you tried. That's what's most important anyway.
