This is a nice story and one that a good number of people should read.  Just today alone I received three link requests which appeared that they were written by a third grade student.  The least some people could do is run a spell check. :)

There’s no turn off bigger than a badly written link request. If you’re going to take the time to knock on people’s doors asking for links you have a far greater chance of success if you’re coherent, honest, relevant and engaging.

Wow, people still send link request emails?

Gotta agree with Bronson, here.I’m not a big fan of using formulaic emails for getting links. The best links are always picked up by either sharing good, highly-relevant content with bloggers/site-owners or actually involving yourself in their communities and developing a relationship.That said, if you’re faced with a situation where you have limited time to get your message out there and want to get some buzz going, this would be an acceptable format for broadcasting out to many second-tier and third-tier bloggers.

I agree that these sorts of things should be left to people that love sending link request emails, and have a workable formula. There’s nothing worse for your branding than send a link request spam to important sites in your niche.
