Have you received emails[s] spam emails from people promising to increase traffic to your website by making you rank high in the SERPS (Search Engine
Results Pages)? We get them all the time. As a matter of fact Google states they
even get these unwanted solicitations. Here's an example of an email Google
received in the past: "Dear  Asics Gel Respector Footwear Moon Beam White Ireland , I visited your website and noticed that you are not listed in most of the major search engines
and directories..."[i]
[s][i]Funny huh? But how many people are responding to these ridiculous emails and spending lots of money with hopes that they can increase traffic to their
website? What's worse, many of these companies are actually able to brainwash
their clients into thinking they really are benefitting! Companies that use
these unethical business practices give the entire SEO (Search Engine
Optimization) community a bad reputation.
[s][i]Two Point Enterprise writes this article about what NOT to look for when shopping for SEO so that you may arm yourself to make an informed choice. We
know of no better way to illustrate this article for you than to present a spam
email we received from one of these rogue companies. Carefully read the email in
the capture below, and then see our comments afterwards.
[s][i]Click here to see a capture of the email[/i][/s]
[s][i]The subject of the email was "Do You Want Referrals from you Website?" (I guess they were in such a hurry to fire this email off they didn't even take
time to check the spelling.)
[s][i]The first red flag is your receipt of the email in the first place! Check out Google's Information for Webmasters and you'll see that the very first thing
they tell you is "Be wary of SEO firms that send you email out of the blue."
[s][i]The next thing the author of this spam email tries to do is make a feeble attempt of identifying themselves with real estate agents. Hence the
words Men's Asics Onitsuka Tiger Mexico 66 Shoes Black White Ireland , "Location, Location, Location". (Sorry partner Asics Onitsuka Tiger Mexico 66 Slip On Shoes All White Ireland , you ain't jumping in bed with me.) Then they pay credit that you might already have
a nice website, but if traffic could be increased could potentially drive
millions of customers and billions of dollars to your website. They rule out
pay-per-click services apparently without giving credit that real estate is
actually one thing pay-per-click can work fairly well with, namely in large
cities. Finally Asics Onitsuka Tiger MEXICO 66 DELUXE Shoes All White Ireland , as with all spam emails like this, they believe they have the solution you've been
looking for!
[s][i][/i][/s][s][i], but SEO was around a long time
before you registered your domain on September 24, 2004. And monthly fees were
invented a long time ago too. I will give them a little credit for putting a
guarantee on your satisfaction rather than your ranking. Rule #2 from Google
is Asics Gel Lyte V Running Shoes Black Ireland , "No one can guarantee #1 ranking." They don't tell you how they guarantee your satisfaction in the email
though. I'd be surprised if it's a 100% money back guarantee. I'll bet they have
it set up where they end up pocketing money some way or another. If they can
brainwash you into thinking they are doing a good job they don't have to give
any money back.
[s][i]The next thing this spam email does is make an attempt to establish credibility for themselves. They want you to go to a search engine and search
for the massive, non-competitive five keyword phrase "neighborhood prospecting
websites for realtors". If the reader hasn't deleted the email and flushed it
through their recycle bin by now they'll see that the company that sent this
email currently ranks #1 for this search. We plugged the five word phrase into a
Google Adwords campaign and put a bid of $5 on it. After submitting, Google
automatically adjusted the price down to .02 (because that's how much it's
worth) Asics Gel Lyte V Running Shoes Feather Grey Ireland , assigned it the top position on the page (because there is no competition for that phrase), and
estimated that our cost per day for the phrase would be .00 (because nobody in
the world would be searching for that). So big deal guys if you are the #1
result for "neighborhood prospecting websites for realtors". That's because
nobody else wants it!
[s][i]Now look down a little further and see what we have here! Well if it isn't an intellectual property and trademark infringement against the search engines,
Google Asics Gel Lyte V Running Shoes Pink Ireland , MSN, and Yahoo!. I'd be willing to bet that these search engines didn't authorize any use of their
registered trademarks. Also I don't see any notice at the bottom identifying the
rightful owners of the trademarks, nor do I see the author disclaim himself from
any affiliation with these search engines. Subtle little images like this can
mislead the reader into thinking some kind of special relationship Asics Gel Lyte V Jogging Shoes White Green Black Ireland , or affiliation, has been radified with the search engines. Google says "beware of
SEOs that allege a 'special relationship' with Google". My guess is that Google
has no plans of entering into some sort of strategic partnership with these whiz
kids any time soon.
[s][i]Next we have the sign-up button where we can make our monthly donation to these people. How thoughtful of them to make the button so nice and big. We
don't want to miss when we try to click it with our mouse!
[s][i]At the very bottom they try to stay with the rules and offer you and itsy bitsy link to opt out of future emails from them. Unless they are conpensating
you, why should you have to take time out of your day to opt out of this email
you didn't ask for in the first place? Good luck with that Atmos x Asics Gel Lyte III Duck Camo Shoes Ireland , by the way. Two weeks ago we received this email and we asked them to stop sending us spam. They
replied and told us we received it be Hola! Est. Cheap Air Max   Cheap Air Max 95   Cheap Air Max   Cheap Nike Air Max   Jordan 1 Shoes For Sale   Nike Air Max 2017 Sale   Cheap Jerseys   Wholesale NFL Jerseys China   Cheap NFL Jerseys China   Cheap Soccer Jerseys Free Shipping
