Link exchanges are really important in driving traffic to other sites. A big thank you to everyone who links to me. Remember, if you have a link to me and you don't see one to you on my blogroll, just let me know in the comments and I will rectify it.

I think the figures show how much of your traffic must be direct!

Andrew said...

Iain Dale says: "Link exchanges are really important in driving traffic to other sites. A big thank you to everyone who links to me. Remember, if you have a link to me and you don't see one to you on my blogroll, just let me know in the comments and I will rectify it".

As you know, I link to you, and as you know you used to link to me, until, that is, you objected to me linking to Iain Dale's Dairy in my blogroll, and demanded that I do not link to this site. I refused to comply with your unreasonable demand, as a result you decided to punish me by removing your link to my site even though I did not remove my link to your's in retaliation.

Given that Tim Ireland has now ceased to blog on the Iain Dale's Dairy site, I decided of my own free will to remove the link not at the behest of some bullying Tory blogger. Therefore, I can see no reasonable excuse for you not honouring the words which you have decided to make public.

For your information, my blog is http://prisonersvoice.blogspot.com

I link to you Iain, and I also have the photo from your blog title as my wallpaper. Not computer screen wallpaper, actual wallpaper. You do link to wife in the north though so I know you do your bit to support the often overlooked and misunderstood northern downshifting community, sigh

Iain,

A link would be greatly appreciated. Probably best in the 'Iain's daily reads' section, just kidding!

Keith Barton said...
