SEOs Sharing SEO Email Spam

SEO Email SpamYou and I all get them, probably a couple times or more per day, spam from "SEO companies" offering us "top guaranteed rankings" in Google if we pay them a few hundred bucks.

The emails that make it to our email inbox folders with these unbelievable offers is often sickening to many of us. At some point, you get dumb to them but at other times you just lose it and want to scream.

That is what happened at Cre8asite Forums when Kim Krause-Berg posted a couple of recent SEO spam emails she received in her thread, "SEO Hall Of Shame."

Now, many SEOs are posting emails they recently received from SEO companies promising the world in a misspelled email blast sent to every web site owner on the internet.

Are you sick of these emails? Have you seen some incredibly funny ones recently? Share them in the thread.

I'm sick of these emails as well, I get them constantly and it amazes me how anybody in their right mind would actually buy SEO services from a (Penguin Link Expert) email blast. Yet, unfortunately some unwary people are duped into it from the cowboys and it gives the industry as a whole a bad name. Personally I save them up and do what Kim does and post them as a bit of fun. There are many fun things you can do with these kinds of emails, spam baiting is a great past-time. :)

Really annoying. People do send spam messages from "Contact Form" too despite of mentioning that the contact form is just to inquire about your project requirements. Well few spams are funny too. Among all the spam mails the most hilarious one is - "I get these almost every day. My favourite though is the phone calls that we get for real estate SEO. My husband usually says to them, "Are you near a computer? Yes? OK, type in *****. See? I have a really good SEO. She got expensive though, so I married her."

Most of us Web techies are smart enough to not fall for those things. But I guess they are going after all the grandma's and non tech savvy folks. But when you think about it, why would gramma care to SEO optimize her website where all she does is post family pictures or what not ? Business minded folks who build good websites are savvy enough to know better. But then here are some that are NEW to SEO, young or old and they are the most vulnerbale. I hope these SEO spammers won't last very long. They will quit and new ones will follow. UGhh
