... this doesn't mean that we necessarily get better results. While search engines are good for an initial search, they do often not provide relevant, in depths answers.
In 1999 we have exchanged our bookmarks to avoid searches someone from our group has already done and shortly thereafter the idea of Link-Mail was born: What if we could exchange bookmarks and link-tips within the net community? Rather than searching the net this community would provide answers to many link related questions among themselves. To keep the ball rolling, we have established this site and 'donated' the first batch of hand-selected, high quality links with the hope that they would be useful for our visitors. Since then, our link library growth has been significant.
Our goal was and is simple: To collect and to provide top quality links from the Internet to our community for free of charge with the hope that this idea will be not only be accepted but also appreciated by submitting bookmarks in return other than our own and to provide and exchange link tips in our blogs or forums. Done rightly, this concept helps to decrease significantly the time necessary to be spent on the net. This has been acknowledged by many users and also by business communities and networks such as Ryze.
To elevate the process further, we have chosen e-mail's as the carrier for our links rather than links normally found on a sidebar. By adding comments and an editorial part, each e-mail becomes an independent letter, our now famous link-mail letters. By introducing our 'Privacy & Anti Spam Policy' our link-mail letters are opt-in without any unwanted follow up. E-mail's proved to be an easy way to communicate with our visitors and enabled than to keep a library of information right on their fingertips, especially if the link-mail letters are kept in a separate link-mail folder. To provide you with information as fast as possible, most of our letters are sent to you by our autoresponder only.
Link-mail.com provides an unique service. While links can be found at every site on the net, we are the only service concentrating solely on link information in ways most useful for our visitors. We provide only quality links to you. As business users we do understand what surfers are most likely looking for. It will be impossible to catalog the net, yet we think with our link-mail letters we provide the best available link information to date. Since our start of our business model we are providing free information to thousands of visitors.
We will continue to search the web for outstanding links while we provide currently over 150 comprehensive link-mail letters with almost 8,000 hand-selected and documented links. Write us if you like our site, what you want to get improved and what kind of new groups you like to get established. You may even help us voluntary , what would be really great.
Besides via our home page, you can get a taste what link-mail is about from our library page since the categories of links over there are documented. But your best start would be always to go straight to the home page and scroll down to the topic you are interest in. Select the link-mail letter you want to know more about and request it...and minutes later you should have quality links in your email box. As easy as that.
In 2007 we have started to re-design our site (a work still in progress!) and hope you'll find it even easier to use. We have added a new review section as well as a context sensitive article section (that is, clicking on the article button will guide you to different article pages, depending where you are just visiting our site). This will help you to find quickly information you may be interested in. New is also our topic link which guides to theme based mini-sites on our server - strictly designed to focus on various topics of interest and to extend to even more resources such as white paper and reports - all on our own site. The topics page includes also a few classifieds you might find interesting. Fore more answers to questions about our site, please visit our FAQ page.

Hope you don't mind that .. but somehow the bills have to be paid ;-) . But our focus will always to provide quality links via email to you. Something we done for years already.
