WWM Plants Safe for Koi Ponds Broken Links, and a new link to add           7/12/19
I wanted to reach out on behalf of your pond links page
http://www.wetwebmedia.com/PondSubWebIndex/pondlinks.htm Over the winter and spring I studied and worked extremely hard to build and maintain a koi pond. My backyard is now my favorite place to be, and I love my fish. They have gotten so big and the flowers around it are blooming just right.
<Ah, nice>
A few weeks ago, when I stumbled onto your page and bookmarked it because I wanted to find plants that could actually go in my pond. (Something other than lily pads.) So thank you for having all that information! It was the perfect start for me, and I appreciate it a ton! Although, I did want to let you know that I found a broken page, it's labeled "Koi Net." It's right at the top of the page. While I was searching, I ended up coming across another page that goes in-depth on the benefits of pond plants, I never really put two and two together, but the shade from the plants reduces the grow rate of algae, which is awesome!
<Will look... links pages are a bane of websites; requiring a good deal of maintenance>
I ended up digging out a small plant shelf and once I got the plants into the pond, I could tell my koi were interested. They started swimming all around and on top of the different plants, they look gorgeous! The page also gave a great list of plants, but more focuses on getting them into your pond. (Which I didn't have one plant die.) I thought because both pages were beyond beneficial to me, that your users might like the one I found, It's http://www.avasflowers.net/plants-for-koi-ponds and I think it'll make a great addition to your page, if you wanted to add it. My pond and garden is now my backyard oasis and I couldn't be happier.
<Ahh, thank you for this; will add>
Thank you again for all the help!

regarding Wet Web Media website. Pool, spa builder/franchisor looking for link placement     3/8/17

Pond Supply Resource Suggestion      12/23/16
Hi there,
<Hey Beth>
I saw you have some awesome pond supply resources on your website here, (http://www.wetwebmedia.com/pondsubwebindex/pondlinks.htm ), and I wanted to make another suggestion for that list if you are open to it. It is Aquatic Ponds which you can check out here, (http://www.aquaticponds.com/ ). I think
this would be a useful and relevant addition to your existing list. Please let me know your thoughts. I hope to hear from you soon!

Additional resource about Koi      7/22/15
Hello Robert,
Just wanted to start off by commending you on all of the great work on http://www.wetwebmedia.com/pondsubwebindex/pdfshbreefaqs.htm
We've created a website, http://nextdaykoi.com , that we think could offer your audience an additional resource for information about Koi.
<Will look>
It offers broad range of high-quality, live koi and goldfish for sale and is full of useful, well-researched tips and articles—like this one about judging standards for koi: <https://nextdaykoi.com/koi-fish-facts/judging-koi-fish/ >
With all of our great resources and products available to complement yours, we thought that by sharing our site with your audience (or by adding it to the resources/links section of your website, http://www.wetwebmedia.com/pondsubwebindex/pdfshbreefaqs.htm . you can boost your site's already
robust content.
Let us know if we can help you!
Warm Regards,
<Thank you. Will add your company URL to our Pond Links pages, and judging materials. Bob Fenner>

Where do I report a broken link on your website?     5/23/13
<Hey Brittany>
I just wanted to shoot you a quick message and let you know that I encountered a broken link while on the wetwebmedia.com site today. I'm not sure if there's a specific person to contact or a form for submitting broken links, but if you could let me know I'll gladly send that information along.
<Please do... running the diagnostic tool for these (there are a few hundred thousand such links on the site) reveals more than I can keep up with. But "important" ones need to be fixed. Cheers, Bob Fenner>
Thanks! J
Re: Where do I report a broken link on your website?     5/23/13

Hello Bob,
The broken links I came across were on your page at:
<Ahh, the site to site link pages...>
Here are the ones
that weren't working for me:
Internet Pond Society
Central Illinois Water Gardeners
Koi Society of Australia
Lee's Koi Corner

I hope that was helpful, I know what a pain it is to keep up with broken links!
 <Ah yes>
I don't know if you're looking to add new links, but if you are, please have a look at www.thepondshop.com - some friends of mine recently launched a site selling a lot of pond and water garden supplies so I thought it might be something your readers would be interested in.
 <Will do; thank you. BobF>

Re: Pondlinks weblink
I want to tell you thanks again for giving the go ahead to add PondFilter.com <http://www.pondfilter.com/> and I also wanted to let you know about our other site, which may actually be preferred for your club to

the Pond World site. If you need any additional info in order to add our link, just let me know.

I found a broken link on  10/29/09
Hi there,
I've been trying to find some information on koi ponds (we're building one in our yard this spring!), and I happened to stumble across your page http://www.wetwebmedia.com/PondSubWebIndex/pondlinks.htm during my research. Wanted to let you know that your page was great! I noticed that you are linking to http://w3.one.net/~rzutt/ - but that link doesn't seem to be working anymore.
<Ahh, happens>
Since your page was so useful to me, in return I'm happy to suggest a replacement link, or at the very least another good resource to add:
It contains some great information on building a pond, adding koi, and lots of other great resources. Hopefully you and your visitors will find the page as helpful as I did :)

Re: link for $ inquiry 4/4/08 Hi Bob, yes I would ask you to link a specific word to www.gardensupermart.com, that word would directly relate to the theme and nature of the page it's link to. For example, on your page: http://www.wetwebmedia.com/ca/volume_2/cav2i3/Garden_Pond_files/The_Outdoor_Garden_Pond.htm, in the first paragraph I would ask for the word 'garden ponds' to link to gardensupermart.com's home page (mostly related to garden ponds). That's basically the idea. If you would link that word that would be greatly appreciated. Please let me know if you have any more questions. Shawn <Gladly done. Good luck to you in your business endeavours. BobF>

I wonder if you would be interested in exchanging links in order to benefit our web site visitors by providing additional resources and increase traffic to both our web sites.
