    I think the 3 “link to us” pages are quite efficient. Proof is: you linked to them from the SEL website! It’s better than most websites! :)

    The amount of time I once had to spend to take down a similar link terms & condition, and the support I had to get from senior executives to get a legal over-enthusiast middle manager to drop the link rules was incredible. Clearly these companies don’t know how the web works.

    This is why it’s a good thing the CA supreme court rules in favor of free linking: http://www.michaelgeist.ca/content/view/6069/125/

    I removed all my link request codes…but I have linked to SEL/SEW/SEJ, etc from some of my simple blog posts, and left comments. How can I get such sites to link back? Send them notice that I have linked? I notice it’s the link and conversion writers tend to link out to external examples. Other category writers in authorative SEO sites seem to reference – as in link (with good intentions though) to their own previous articles.

    I also test and review many freeware software listed by authorative sites, and they generally ask (or display) for back links with their their fancy logo’s or widgets. It seems they may not ever link back to bloggers, and why would they? Not sure if such sites act on their back links from diverse and numerous link contributors. Though Wikipedia/edu sites linked to some of my posts. But why just them? I guess their contributors/researchers take more effort to search all kinds of content contributions, including obscure bloggers. But nothing from Microsoft, SEOmoz, Read Write Web, etc – whom their posts rank against some of mine on page 1 of the SERP’s.
