SEO Tip - Trade backlinks with industry specific websites

This sort of piggy backs on the Zappos example from above. Always seek out the main players in your industry. When you contact another website for a link, be polite! I can’t tell you how many link requests I have taken in which the trade request is rude. I throw those out right away.

Consider something like this when you seek to trade a link with an industry specific website:

Dear Webmaster,
I recently came across your website and wanted to commend you on it. The content of your website is very informative and the layout is extremely professional looking! I see that we can both benefit each other by placing each other’s link on our respective “resources” page. This will of course help us both in the way of linking.

If you’d be so kind, please consider placing my attached link on your page. I would very much like to hear back from you on this with a link of your own for me to post as well.

Kind Regards,

You see, this letter is very much to the point, but at the same time very polite. No one wants to be told to place a link to your website. Remember, you are asking this webmaster for a favor. Your attitude should reflect that as well.
