Recently I’ve been increasingly getting contact form messages with “SEO Service” offers that “guarantee to get me on the first page of Google”. Interestingly, most of them supply www.yahoo.com as their website URL. WTF?
This is how they mostly read:
Name: John Smith
Subject: SEO Services
We would like to get your website on first page of Google.
All of our processes use the most ethical “white hat” Search Engine Optimization techniques that will not get your website banned or penalized. Please reply and I would be happy to send you a proposal.
Note the “white hat” mention? How absurd to do so in spam! 😮
And that it’s spam is absolutely obvious. I’m not sure if it is automated or manual spam, but it is spam. The question is only if there is a SEO business behind it at all, or is it just email harvesting.
Whichever it is, what strikes me is the incredible dumbness how it is written. Obviously, spam continues to be written by idiots and for idiots, because I can’t see any way that a human being with any kind of half-way functioning brain could ever fall for such wording and take any action in response other than pressing the DELETE button.
But putting Yahoo as their website URL, while saying they’ll get you on the 1st page of Google, who must be the #1 thorn in Yahoo’s flesh after taking over their SE market, is sooo much behind ridiculousness, so much dumber than dumbness, that I don’t even have words for it.
Now I could list the criteria that I would expect fulfilled from a half-way decent SEO offer, but then I wouldn’t want to find them included in the next spam wave.1 No no, bloody spammers, you just keep sending me dumb messages that I can quickly identify as such and delete.
God, I hate stupidity! 😀
