Link Building Through Old GeoCities Links?

Geocities LinksA WebmasterWorld thread has interesting discussion around a link building strategy of looking for sites that link to old GeoCities web pages.

As you know, GeoCities was shutdown by Yahoo in October 2009. There are still many sites that link to old GeoCities sites and one tactic link buildings love to use is to inform webmasters of broken links and suggest they link to their site.

That being said, do you think it is worth going through the process of discovering who is linking to old GeoCities sites and then reaching out to those webmasters to link to your site?

You have to understand that is is almost two years since GeoCities was killed and maybe the sites linking to those pages are also pretty much dead? Or maybe not?
