Funny Link Request

I have just started to put in place a directory of UK web designers and yesterday I got my 1st request for a listing:

“Hi there,

Please can you put my design company into your Directory for Yorkshire. We are a newly established business but have a successful record so far! Our website is being built at the moment (funny how you can design everyone else’s website and never find time for your own!).

Our address:

Unit 4 Amber Business Centre, Rawmarsh road, Rotherham, S60 1RU.

Kind Regards,

Candice Link

Managing Director

JEWEL Cre@tive Ltd”

Her last name is link, how awesome is that for link requests? I was so impressed with her last name, I told her she could have a listing immediately, even though I have not properly launched the dir yet.

Candice’s website, Jewel Creative will be online soon.

  1. My first instinct would have been “that’s a made-up name!”

    Maybe a mixed blessing for link requests if people make that assumption and don’t bother to check.

    Nice redesign btw David, looks slicker now ;)

  2. I would have questioned it, but I don’t think she was too interested in the actual link. I got the feeling that it was more the exposure she was looking for.
