SEO Spam: Open Letter to SEO spammers!

Dear SEO Spammer,

Thank you for your incessant emails about helping to rank my site higher on the search engines. I get plenty of emails every day from every SEO Tom, Dick & Harry to rank my site higher in the search engines.

I clearly do not want your spammy services.

Please consider the following points before trying to pitch your unsolicited services to me!

1. You probably found this blog as it is ranked high on the search engines.

2. You probably do not have enough work, otherwise you would not have free time to submit your unsolicited services.

3. You probably are not a good SEO, if you cannot make out the above.

4. If you are "leading SEO company and are located in USA", then why the hell are you looking for work in India?

5. Does SEO guide lines also suggest -> that you have to spam the hell out of your potential clients, so that they get so frustrated as to write an open letter to all SEO's? and consequently, never, ever take up on your offer?

6. Finally, why ask me for my website's url, if you have already studied it in detail and are offering me your services!


here is an example of some of the emails which I get on a daily basis

Thank you for your post, I just received a message from this guy and would like to verify before replying to him.
In my message, he tells he was based in India, not USA !

Abhishek, can you suggest how service vendors could more effectively present their case to doctors such as yourself?
What pointers do you think vendors should think of addressing, rather than just resort to a sales pitch?
