Smile Links to tutorials pointed to other's web pages and not the author of the tutorial

I was looking around and found several of my tutorial on this web site.

I don't have much of a problem with that but the links refer to web sites other than my own. Several people have gathered locations for tutorials and made reference to them on their web pages and now this page, and I am sure there are others, have links to these "informational pages" and not back to the original authors web page.

For example, there is a tutorial link for building my electro-etcher but the link points to Dan Gray's site at instead of my site. Ultimately they get to my site but I guess I want them to see my stuff before Dan gets a shot at their wallet.

If people are going to provide links, please point the link to the original authors page.


Tumbling down the road at 35 MPH is no fun, TRUST ME!

Yo Bob,
You are 100% right! I have a site that is rated in the top listings on virtually every search engine in its catagory, and it never ceases to amaze me that people think it's OK to use my information without even mentioning where they got it from, let alone linking back to my site. It's not only wrong, but if they don't even credit you, it's illegal. I have found the knifemaking community overall to be very righteous and generous with sharing knowledge, as you demonstrate so well, and let's just hope it's a unintentional oversight to not have created a link to your site when using your content. And of course, they should have asked permission and guaranteed linking in the first place. In any event, thanks for the selfless sharing you do. It's a great help.
Bob Rose
