Sorry that I did not answer your email as quickly as you think I should have, but I do have other things to do. First, you contacted me. I had never heard of you until your email. I regularly receive email requests to post links and I have neither an obligation nor a desire to do research on each request. I merely evaluate the information presented to me and, based upon that information; I make a judgment as to whether or not to post a link.
TKDTutor.com receives over 2500 visitors a day. While I appreciate it when other sites add links to TKDTutor.com, I do not need the links nor do I request the links. When I a request to post a link is send to me, if I think the link may be useful to my visitors, I post the link.
As with most link requests, the only information I received from you was your web site link. I went to your web site, viewed all the pages, and made my initial decision based upon the following:
- The “Home” link returns a “Cannot find page” error. Problems occur on any web site.
- The “Products” link is to a page to sell books, nothing wrong with that.
- The “Services” link is to:
- Sell memberships in your organization, which according to the web site will get you a certificate and a “wide verity [sic] of services and products.” I can send money from the page but there is no information on the page as to what I will receive for my money.
- Advertise your certificate design service. You are correct in your assumption that I interpreted what I saw on the page as being a certificate mill. Upon scrutiny, I can see that you intended the page to present information about your certificate design service. I was wrong in my initial assumption.
- The remaining links are to some useful information.
- The site appears to be newly established and in the processes of growing.
- The site told me nothing about you or your organization. From what was presented on the site, it appeared to be no more legitimate than the hundreds of other backyard martial art “organizations” one may find on the Internet.
