Link Building By Client Requesting Links Directly

clientA WebmasterWorld thread has one link builder asking if you ever make the request of your client to submit link requests on your behalf.

For example, you hire a link building company to get them to build link equity to your site. That link building company is doing their job but they ask you from time to time to reach out to specific link prospects directly.

Why would they do this? Well, often that client is known by the link prospect and if the client directly asks, there is probably a higher success factor by going direct.

One link builder said he tried it once but only had his client give the link prospect a heads up that he would be contacting them. He didn't want to put the client in a position of requesting the link directly.

Do you use this method?
