Are the services really free?
Yes! Our links and links delivery service via our link-mail letters are absolute free for you, without even to register yourself as a member.
What are the link-mail letters?
The link-mail letters are the most important parts of this site - they contains all the links you are looking for. Together with an editorial, they provide a comprehensive list of links as invaluable resources. Reading these letters and follow the links will save you a lot of time. Request these link-mail letters from each link-mail letter page. They're free, after all.
How likely is that our link-mail letters carry the links I'm looking for?
Very likely! Each link-mail page is highly optimized and focused. Any search or link which led you find our pages are likely justified. Read our letters and judge by yourself.
What are you doing better than the search engines?
Using the search engines provides you with many documents unrelated to your search. We have focused very narrowly each link-mail letter and thus our hand-selected links are very likely to be of interest for you.
In addition, search engines seldom validate their links, but we do this on an ongoing basis. Also, during our search we have found many link gems and published them in our link-mail letters. These gems would you take many online hours to find, if ever.
We believe our link-mail letters provide a good start for your search and a much better solution any 'portal' could offer.
Is there any catch inherited to your free service?
There is no catch at all. But it must be understood that all of our links will be sent via our link-mail letters only in order to make it possible for you to build a unique and up-to-date e-mail link library. Alternatively, links you are looking for may be requested in our new link forum.
Why did most of the links will be sent using e-mail only?
E-mail is one of the fastest mediums to supply information and in our case the links. It enables you to organize the links effectively and it provides also a way to communicate with our visitors very easily.
If I request your link-mail letters, will I be spammed?
Not at all! We have not only introduced our privacy policies, we are also behind of them. We will not sent you any unwanted follow-up letter. So you need not to fear to receive endless e-mail's from us.
Can I see a sample of your link-mail letters before I request any one of them?
Sure. Just visit our sample (yet original) link-mail letter page.
I saw the risk free opt-in check boxes at every link-mail letter page. What does it means?
We provide a means for you to get the latest link updates in a timely fashion to your e-mail box. Tick them and you will always receive the latest links, spam-free. The link-mail letters will be updated whenever we have found new links or want to update the current letter. We try to keep currently a monthly update schedule. As more visitors are requesting our letters, as faster we will update them. We do not flood your e-mail box, through. And of course, your e-mail subscription can be canceled at any time.
You call yourself a community. Why?
Well, link-mail.com is a place to gather many links quickly and this is not limited to our current link selections. But it provides also a unique way for you to promote and share your topic of interest completely free. Lets give us an example:
Assuming you know everything about dogs - how to raise them, how to feed them and how to take care of them. Now, If you can write a small editorial (similar as you can see in our link-mail letter or in our sample page) and if you can tell us at least 15 related top Internet links, we will add this letter to our pool of link-mail letters, credited to you.
We will promote this letter as we have done it with our own link-mail letters after we have designed the page with your topic to fit our site. The benefit: You can share your knowledge with everyone. Imaging, if you are not the only one here to share your special knowledge, including free promotion. As a thank you, we will link back to you from our letters and will provide a free ad for your site for one month!
We don't like Adsense. Why do you have it?
Like you, we do prefer not to have any kind of advertising on our site either (as we did so for many years), but somehow our ever increasing costs have to be paid. The alternative would be to close our site...and we think that would be a shame. We still like to provide our service for free for everyone.
Updates! Updates! Updates!
We are currently updating our site both in design and functionality and you may find different designs leading to some inconvenience. Best is to start at our home page and then follow the links marked 'updated' only. Those links provide the new design already and also the latest sets of links for you. We will update our site continously but it is expected that it will take a few more month to complete everything.
Can we link to you?
Yes, you are very much invited...If you like our site and found it useful ;-)
