SEO spammer

Posted by on September 29, 2015.

seoI got this email from an SEO operative. He offers to improve the Google ranking of my website. He says, “I found your site using Google search and after having a look over your website I recommend you to implement future technologies such as HTML5 and Responsive Design to make your site more accessible in mobile phone, tablets, desktop etc.”

He adds, “I am not spamming. I have studied your website and believe I can help with your business promotion.”

All sounds good, yes? Except for one thing: he’s not talking about this site but about my old blog that I haven’t touched for 16 months. And every page of that blog has the following notice:


So, Mr Bad Richard Smith, SEO expert (I say that with apologies to our very own Mr Good Richard Smith), you are a spammer and very likely a scammer too. I don’t like you. I don’t need you. And I absolutely don’t want your amateur and slipshod services.
