I 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.Share This: Submitted in: Expert Views, Kevin Townsend's opinions |
