    If you’re exchanging links, #2 on the list, I strongly recommend Arkayne. It links your blogs automagically.

  11. John says:

    Great list. I wish you could recommend some reliable webrings and/or text ad people. I’ve seen a lot of scams with that kind of stuff.

    Handy, thanks.

  15. Thats great stuff. It is very useful for blog promotion.

  16. Asking for link exchanging is very difficult and may I say frustrated. I have a blog on relationship and is trying to get in contact with some bloggers to request link exchange. I have emailed 2 people but they replied saying that they would put my link on their sites after I have put theirs on mine. I don’t know if this is how it’s supposed to work?
