Dear Google, We Can Help With Your Google Rankings

splat-googleYou and I get them all the time, spammy emails from SEO companies telling us how they can get us more traffic and higher rankings in Google.

But did you know Google gets them as well? Yes. Not just Matt Cutts to his personal blog or other Googlers to their personal blogs. But Google.com gets these emails, telling them that they aren't ranking well in their own search engine but not to worry because this SEO company can help.

John Mueller from Google posted such an example email solicitation made out to Google on Google+. Here is how it read:

Dear Google Team,

I thought you might like to know some of the reasons why you are not getting enough Organic search engine and Social Media traffic foryour website.

1. Your website is not ranking top in Google organic search for many competitive keywords.

2. Your website profile needs to have regular update in major Social Media sites.

3. Your site has less number of Google & Yahoo back links, this can be improved further.

...

I think Google should take them up on the offer. I mean, can it hurt?

It just amazes me people do this.

Would love to see them try to improve Google's rank. lol Maybe a "proof of performance" guarantee type of arrangement can be made? If they can't substantiate an improvement in Google's ranking on Google, they don't get paid. They might even be dumb enough to accept it.

Wish would then go after these companies, remove the sites from G and hopefully we can all enjoy a little less spam!! Hate getting these emails daily, ethical indian SEO at its best!

I saw this post of Muller and got very confused as to why he has posted it. At the end of the post there was a hashtag on #backtowork and then I thought maybe this is one of the ways John is boosting employees towards work. How big fool I am! :P Thanks for clearing this Barry.

To be fair, I'm seeing Google on page 3 for a search for "search engine". Perhaps they should take this company up on their offer? :P

Clearly google doesn't know anything about SEO, if you google, "google" google reader shows up third, I think they should have accepted the offer.

I like how they address it to the Google team. Perhaps just direct it to Matt Cutts. =)

Google understand search query better than us :) and other thing is why would you search for search engine in Google itself, this is does not make sense. Agree???

THat is interesting! I wonder why the Googlers should not accept those generous SEO companies offers so that their blogs can rank #1 in Google search results. Well probably the SEO companies need to call the Google and when the Googler's pick up the phone the SEO guy should ask the Googlers to go to their computer as they walk the Googlers through search results to convince them on why they should accept the offer the SEO company is offering them so that the Googlers' blogs will beat those of their competitors.
