Did you know that some ‘SEO’ experts have offered to help Google improve its own search results position?
If you have a website, the chances are that you have received ‘out of the blue’ emails from self-styled SEO experts advising you that they have looked at your website, and think they can help you.
Often they’re fairly complimentary about your website, saying that they liked it, and thought it deserved more attention. They’ll even suggest that they have already spent time checking its position within various search engine listings and directories.
Of course, pretty much all of these are merely spam – but spam designed to appeal to you. They flatter the hard work you have invested, and offer a seemingly friendly hand to help you get higher up the search results pages.
Google have pointed out that they also receive such emails!
I visited your website and noticed that you are not listed in most of the major search engines and directories…’
If an SEO ‘expert’ is having to resort to spamming website owners in order to get work, then they’re the kind of SEO expert where the letters SEO stand for Spam Expert Only.
If you need help with promoting your website in ways which are likely to actually see results, then go look for a specialist.
After all, they shouldn’t be that hard to find, should they?
