Hi Madhu,

I think it's more 'excessive promotion of a link containing your own

Say you wrote an article on Apache password permissions and uploaded it
to your personal site .... and every time anyone asked a question
remotely related to Apache password permissions -- you emailed back the
link to the article you wrote that is sitting on your site.

In that situation, you could be said to be "linkwhoring".

My impression,

Somebody used this term in an email to me today: "linkwhoring".
