Email marketing and link building
We use Constant Contact for our email marketing (to our own database). I've just noticed that Opensite Explorer is showing up our latest email as a new link - Constant Contact also give a website link to the email.
Does this have any value at all in link building terms? I'm not actually sure how long the weblink lasts so it may be temporary....

Its temrorory & may be its count as spam . so always use indirect URL in email marketing instead of your website direct link.

Why would it count as spam? The domain authority of the website is high and constant contact is a credible site.

I don't see the link counting as spam as it did develop organically. The link may be no-follow but I'm not sure, if you search your site on Backlinks Checker Tool - Backlink Watch it may tell you if it's a no-follow. Hopefully that helps, I'm not the backlink genius I'd like to be

It's not spam. It's common and will not help nor hurt you.

I never thought that Open site explorer is also counting links from emails!

It's the HTML view as option.
I wanted to Google an article to show you, but ironically Google'ing the question answered the question it's self:
First listing? Top 10 Places for Quality Backlinks
A news letter in view as HTML format version.

Thanks Joshz, it's interesting that the newsletter actually ranks in itself. All no follow links unfortunately but good exposure all the same..
