Unless someone has/is doing it already, I am going to start contacting sites brought up by a google search for linux, to inform them about our site/campaign. I will keep you notified about my progress.

Just hoping I'm not being too heavy handed.

Mind you if people don't like my approach, you could always disown me Smiling.

No way you are going to be disowned! Thanks so much for the work Bjwebb. [no hate mail so far BTW :-)]
If you can do it easily, can you list the sites you contacted already? Just so we avoid duplicates.

These are all the ones I e-mailed directly (but I also filled out contact forms on a few sites):

feedback[at]linux.org, jriddell[at]ubuntu.com, info[at]linux.com, debian-www[at]lists.debian.org, webmaster[at]kernel.org, hostmaster[at]linux.co.uk, webmaster[at]li.org, www[at]gentoo.org, mike.saunders[at]futurenet.co.uk, webmaster[at]ubuntu.com, allaboutlinux[at]gmail.com, atom[at]smasher.org

So far, I have only got one reply.

Ben,

Thanks for the update. The site looks good, even though LQ isn't
listed in the support section Eye Good luck!

I have not replied to this, because I am not sure what to say - they are congratulating us, but it is a very short answer (although I should expect Linuxquestions recieves a lot of mail) and does not say anything about my suggestion of linking back. He does point out though that we don't link to them, is this still the case?

I edited your post to

I edited your post to replace @ with [at] in email addresses. That ways they're harder for spambots to pick up, and we don't want to cause any of those people to get spam. Eye

Thanks. I didn't bother

Thanks. I didn't bother myself because all those sites were displaying there e-mail adresses pretty prominently, but I guess it is better to have them disguised.

Oh I see.. Well I guess it can't hurt anyway. At least spambots wont get any cake from here. Eye
