So here's how to get people to link to you.

1) Find a site you'd like to trade links with.

2) Add a link to them on your site

3) Write a personalized email to the webmaster, telling him what you liked about his site, and mentioning that you've linked to it. Tell him or her the page that contains the link to them. Explain what your site is about, and request a link back.

The key is PERSONALIZATION. An email that starts "I found your website on the net..." is sure to be categorized as stupid spam, but "I really liked your explanation of widget manufacturing on " demonstrates you've actually looked over the site.

Good luck!
