A lot of the techniques that are useful for picking up girls are also useful for getting links. Both enterprises are a delicate art which rely on equal parts luck, timing, product and skill. Here are a few of the ways in which getting links is a lot like getting… a date.

lol ... This is a great way to lok at link building.  When you really think about the theory behind both.  Many people are afraid to ask, simply for the fear of rejection.  The worst thing that could happen is you get a NO.Great Article, Thanks.JTdesigns.com

Plus, no one has to complain if a site links to more than a web page at once!

Difference is, if you pick up a nasty someone and decide you don’t want to see them again after you see them in the morning, you can cut your ties with them, unless you get the herps or something.With linking, once you pick up a bad link, its a knotch on your bedpost forever in the Google Cache, and almost anyone can find out about it :)Great analogy and great blog!
