Great Example of Link Request Email

I was reading an article in SEO Chat, and I came across a well written link request/building email that I wanted to share. Here it is modified for those who want to recruit folks looking for volunteer opportunities online:

“I have created a web site for our Volunteer Center called, which could be very valuable to your students looking for volunteer opportunities or their graduation requirements. It is a free site with volunteer opportunity listings and information about local nonprofits who need volunteers. If you find time, please visit our site, and consider linking to it from your site, as it would certainly be a resource for your students. Any feedback would be much appreciated! Thanks for your time and have a nice day!”

Most folks starting out requesting links on a new site ask for 100 links per day for 5 days. That’s where the tip sheet I created for how to get your volunteers help in building links to your website comes in handy. Use your volunteers to build traffic to your site!
