Organic SEO Services Snake Oil Email Spam

June 16th, 2012 by Kevin Zoll

Another SEO Snake Oil salesman from India. What is it with these fly by night SEO firms? Just a quick read of the below email, makes it clear that they really don’t understand what SEO is really all about. Everything they are talking about, blog submissions, directory listings, link building, and article writing will do more to kill your site then help.

You write for people not search engines. You build web sites for people. Yes, you want Google, Bing, Yahoo and other search engines to find your site. That’s why you submit your site map to the big 3. If you have quality, relevant content and post on a frequent basis; your content will return in search results and with a high placement if it is relevant to the conducted search.

“Note: We are not spammers and are against spamming of any kind. If you are not interested then you can reply with a simple \”NO\”,We will never contact you again.” You really believe you are not a spammer? That aforementioned statement does not make it OK to send unsolicited emails to business owners.

Spam is defined as unsolicited e-mail, often of a commercial nature, sent indiscriminately to multiple mailing lists, individuals, or newsgroups; junk e-mail. So, by that definition that would make you a spammer, Mr. Abhay Singh.

    • I received the same email, so I search their website on Google and found this post. Well, just ignore them.
      If they are good enough, why send anonymous email to market their service? if they are good, they should get clients through recommendations.

    • I get these all the time. If they are any good, then there is no need to send unsolicited emails marketing your service. People looking for SEO services will find your company, if it’s any good.

      As someone who provides IT support, and web design services. I take a perverse pleasure in highlighting some of the less than scrupulous practices.
