I'm trying to promote an auto body shop: Hillsboro body and paint. One way links form other body shops around the country would help in the SERPS, I think. So, I create a directory with body shops from all 50 states. I populate it with about 100 shops initially. Then I email 10 shops a day with a link request. Place this link (anchortext/url to Hillsboro body/paint) on your site and we'll add you to the directory. BTW, yes the directory will be hosted on a separate class C subnet than the Hillsboro site. Do you think this is worth the time involved? Are there better uses of my time?
