One of our test websites in our performance study network received this email sent by an Andrew (no relation) with a gmail address. I’m almost tempted to respond from a non company email address and see what solution he promises. My question first, though, is was this email sent by a human (the text is obviously copy and paste) or did merely a computer do it en masse? The last thing I want to do is confirm an email address on yet another spammer marketing list. We all know how the spam multiplication table works overtime–1 confirmed email x 1 mailing list = 100 spam lists and when you multiple them each by 2 you end up with about 30 spam emails per day.
I do have one question for you, Andrew: you say “we are the recognized world leader …”–I’m curious which company you are really with? Why the gmail address (or hotmail as many other spam SEO emails use)? Why no website where I can dig for more information and see if you’ve applied the techniques you recommend to your own website? Why the unsolicited email to begin with–SEO companies that really “know their stuff” don’t have to be aggressive and annoy prospective customers to death. Our clients contact us–either through referrals from other clients or through finding us online.
I’m still tempted to learn what he has to offer–maybe he can beat the $19.99/month “special” that the SEO telemarketer from New York offered me a couple days ago.
