  • ;jewwatchOur first step is getting links removed from sites that had no intention of helping Jew Watch rank. Ivebuilt a list of the unintentional boosters. I need folks to contact these sites.Your assignment, should you choose to accept it, is:Please do the following:- Find out who to contact to remove the link from the above page(s).- Contact them and ask politely if theyd remove the link. You can use this message, or write your own:=====Dear ,I have a favor to ask. Were trying to make sure that jewwatch.com can no longer rank in the top 10 onGoogle for the word jew. You wrote an article about the site, which included a link to Jew Watch. Iknow you didnt intend to help this site, but your link, even if its nofollowed, is boostingJewWatch.coms authority.If you could remove the link (you dont have to change the article!) it would help us a great deal.Thanks,=====
