Barnes & Noble Asks Bloggers to Change Borders Links

The Barnes & Noble online marketing team sent a mass email to blog editors today, requesting that bloggers change Borders links to Barnes & Noble links.

Here’s an excerpt from the email: “Barnes & Noble recently purchased most of the Borders trademarks and intellectual property in a recent auction. As a result of this purchase, we started transitioning the Borders.com website to Barnesandnoble.com via redirects. We noticed that your site is currently linking to http://www.borders.com, and I’d like to reach out and ask you to kindly update your links to the corresponding URLs on Barnesandnoble.com. We have redirects in place for many Borders.com pages, so you can use that to help you determine the correct landing pages on Barnesandnoble.com.”

What do you think about this mass email? We currently have more than 420 different posts on GalleyCat linking to Borders news, so it is a pretty major request. Follow this link if you want to read more about Barnes & Noble’s purchase of Borders’ intellectual property.
