I received an email a couple of days ago from an SEO company which I thought I’d keep to one side to have a look at. As a rule I don’t pay for anything so had no intentions of using their company but thought I’d have a look at their site when I got the chance.
For obvious reasons I won’t name the company who
spammed sent me the email but let me say thanks guys – I haven’t laughed so hard in days 😆
The email told me what a great SEO company they were and how they were going to get me to the top of all the search engines. It went on about the benefits of linking and made specific reference to the link:http://www.yoursite.com feature within Google. For those who don’t know what this means, it’s a rather inaccurate but still slightly useful tool offered by Google to show you how many sites link to a specific URL. Personally I don’t trust the information returned and prefer to use tools like the ones I refer to in my 5 SEO Tips post.
They told me that I had a poor rating for my particular site with only 7 inbound links and how they could transform my site into a fully optimized site by getting me loads more inbound links using their own “tried and tested” techniques. They will guarantee me my money back if they couldn’t achieve a Top Ten listing in Google, Yahoo! and MSN.
Imagine my mirth when I sauntered over to Google and typed in link:http://www.thesitethatwastryingtosellmeseo.com and discovered that their “tried and tested” techniques had gained them…ermm…no inbound links.
Maybe I ought to reply to the email and offer my SEO services 😀
