A strange request today from a Quinstreet representative who contacted us today via email requesting we remove a link to Insurance.com.
While we respect and shall comply with there request it seems bizarre to me that they don’t want links back to their site.
While this post that they refer to Music.com For Sale was published nearly 3 years ago, I don’t see what effect it would have on their SEO that would be a concern to have it removed.
Has any other domain name investors or bloggers been asked to remove such links to Insurance.com?
It has come to our attention that your site is linking to our domain, Insurance.com (property of QuinStreet, Inc.). During a regular review of our site, we have discovered links pointing to our site, many of which may be several years old. However, these links may no longer be relevant to either your or our site.
Below is a list of linking pages from your site that we respectfully ask you to remove/nofollow as soon as possible. After removing/nofollowing, we would appreciate it if you would send us an email confirming the removal/nofollow.
