I am helping a group of Myrtle Beach, SC resorts add more
incoming links to their sites.

Can you please let me know if you are adding new links to your site,
and if so, how we should go about adding them (i.e. cost of link,
reciprocal link, submission page)

Thank you so much for your help,

Laura Angermeier
