SEO Web Page Information: SEO Spam Emails

SEO Spam Emails

no spam email

The following is a compiled list of emails we have received and are considered spam, with the reasons they are considered spam.

Learn how to spot spam email for SEO.

So please don't fall for SEO email SPAM!

But first, here is some information from Google about "Do you need an SEO?" which states:

 

  • Be wary of SEO firms and web consultants or agencies that send you email out of the blue.

    Amazingly, we get these spam emails too: (we also get these emails at SEO Web Page Information)

    "Dear google.com,
    I visited your website and noticed that you are not listed in most of the major search engines and directories..."

    Reserve the same skepticism for unsolicited email about search engines as you do for "burn fat at night" diet pills or requests to help transfer funds from deposed dictators.

  • No one can guarantee a #1 ranking on Google.

    Beware of SEOs that claim to guarantee rankings, allege a "special relationship" with Google, or advertise a "priority submit" to Google. There is no priority submit for Google. In fact, the only way to submit a site to Google directly is through our Add URL page or by submitting a Sitemap and you can do this yourself at no cost whatsoever.

  • Be careful if a company is secretive or won't clearly explain what they intend to do.

    Ask for explanations if something is unclear. If an SEO creates deceptive or misleading content on your behalf, such as doorway pages or "throwaway" domains, your site could be removed entirely from Google's index. Ultimately, you are responsible for the actions of any companies you hire, so it's best to be sure you know exactly how they intend to "help" you. If an SEO has FTP access to your server, they should be willing to explain all the changes they are making to your site.

Some useful questions to ask an SEO include:

  • Can you show me examples of your previous work and share some success stories?
  • Do you follow the Google Webmaster Guidelines?
  • Do you offer any online marketing services or advice to complement your organic search business?
  • What kind of results do you expect to see, and in what timeframe? How do you measure your success?
  • What's your experience in my industry?
  • What's your experience in my country/city?
  • What's your experience developing international sites?
  • What are your most important SEO techniques?
  • How long have you been in business?
  • How can I expect to communicate with you? Will you share with me all the changes you make to my site, and provide detailed information about your recommendations and the reasoning behind them?

Title: Internet Marketing (SEO) Proposal

Body: Hello,

I hope you are doing well.

I was going through your website, I must say it's neatly done and designed however though, I see that it's not ranking well on search engines as it should have been for its keywords.

If so, here's the good news we are a complete digital SEO company working on a unique Pay For Performance Model with right practices in place and as per Google's guideline. We will promote your website on global platform and will get you the desired results and you don't have to pay us either until you see the results as promised.

This will help you to;

  2. Drive additional and high value traffic to your site before any payment is due.
  3. Ensure longevity for page 1 positions to achieve the best for the site.

SEO Web Page Information Comments: Not ranking well - Obvious they have not looked at the website or it's ranking. No monthly payments due until page 1 rankings are achieved - another page one guarantee. Also my email client showed a phishing message warning.

phishing message

Phishing is the malicious practice of luring you into disclosing your personal information. Often phishing messages have deceptive links that actually take you to spoofed websites that urge you to enter and submit your personal information.

Sample Spam Email #4

Title: Digital solutions - increase your revenues

Body: Dear Business owner,

This letter regards to the website www._____.com

My name is _____. I am the director of digital marketing at _____. We have some very good news. We have discovered why your website has not been effective as it could be.

OUR ANALYSIS IS AS FOLLOW;

No.1 - The organic traffic to your website has been extremely low. We have measured it at less than 40 percent. It really should be at 80-90%. Since it is not, you are missing out on at least twice as much exposure that you could and should be getting.

No.2 - People who are searching for your type of Business on search engine like GOOGLE, YAHOO and BING are not being driven to your website due to an insufficient number of in-bound links instead; they are being driven to one of your competitor's websites. This is business that your company is losing to the competition. This is totally unnecessary. Certainly, anything worth doing is worth doing well. With some adjusting this can mean an increase in business of many thousands of dollars per year.

No.3 - The social presence of your website is minimal to be most effective; your website should be actively found on over 10+ high social media websites. This increased social presence will expose your business and your website to people who live, work and frequent your local market and geographical area... If people are not aware of your existence, they will do business with one of your competitors instead. As the saying goes.. OUT OF SIGHT ...OUT OF MIND..

Overall, based on our research, we can certainly improve the results you have been getting by increasing your Company's online presence and resolving any critical online reputation management issues that you are having. We would also like to discuss your website's conversion rate optimization with you. We can convert more of your visitors into becoming actual customer.

Invite for consultation...CALL NOW! Or Email Back. We can proceed from our corporate e-mail ID...this is just a once-off measure to avoid spam.

Best Regard,

The _____ Team


SEO Web Page Information Comments: First of all they do not know what the organic web traffic is! They believe "insufficient number of in-bound links" is my problem and I'm loosing web traffic to competition, do they know my competition, I don't think so! They are recommending that the website should be on 10+ social media websites. I don't think they know what business my website is in.

SEO Web Page Information Comments: The three words used in the sample are not what the owner of the website would consider as key words so why should they be interested in ranking those words?

The owner of the website used Word Press for building the website and when validating for errors with CSE HTML Validator Pro, it shows a few errors but nothing to get too excited with but the email claims "several coding errors on your site which means most of your content is not even indexed".

So we checked indexing with Google Webmaster Tools and Google reports 2007 pages submitted and 2004 indexed so why the misleading quote?

google index 201410

This email was not a Gmail email, it came from an actual company email address, I consider this a step in the right direction. I took a look at their company website and found some basic SEO errors: 1) the meta tag description had 6 characters, a description is not one word! 2) they also had one keyword, it was the same as the description. 3) validating their website home page with the W3C Validator tool found the errors in the image below.

w3c validation of seo email

Maybe they should clean up their own website first? In fairness my own page (this one) has four errors when using the W3C validator, these errors are with the Google ads on the right.

The use of words on their home page:

spam email 22 word density

It's good that the email showed the company website (from the email address) but not good for having your own website with SEO errors when trying to get SEO work!

SEO Web Page Information Comments: You will notice several promises (as seen in previous spam email examples) and there are the incorrect claims about the website, which has over 1,000,000 unique visitors a year.

"Target your local market", Why?, the website is not a local market website!

What is different with this spam email is the claim that they can "secures your website from next Google updates".

So do they have a crystal ball to the next Google update? LOL I don't think so!

Title: Trying to Connect

Body: Hey There,

_____ here, I stumbled upon your site when poking around the Internet.

I understand you probably get hundreds of emails from every man and his dog, coming from all corners of the earth! However, I work for a fast growing online marketing agency here in Melbourne AU, yes Melbourne! Not Delhi, Dubai or Pluto!

I'm reaching out to you as the agency I work for could help you guys get a lot more leads online. Whether that is through making sure you appear at the top of Google in the organic listing (not the paid section), where over 80% of people click are clicking, or just by making sure your website convert a lot more visitors into leads.

I am taking an educated stab in the dark here, however based on your online presence; you are likely missing out over 94% of the business that is running through Google.com for your industry.

I hope you don't mind me emailing, I just find it a little less invasive from calling you up and interrupting what ever it is you are doing at this present moment :)

If this sounds like something of interest, and you are attracted to growing your business smarter, better, faster in 2015 - simply reply with your very best contact details and I will give you a quick buzz.

Regards,

_____

SEO Web Page Information Comments: Why would they say "website rankings have dropped on Google" when they haven't? They also say it is because of SEO-(Google Rankings) and Web-Design but the rest of the email is about Online-Marketing-and-Advertising and they want to know the keywords I'm interested in. Someone should tell them that SEO isn't just keywords!

They said the drop in Google ranking were in part "due to non-optimized techniques / errors" see W3C test results: (the 1 warning is because the webpage is HTML5)
w3c validation test results 46

So I searched Google for their company name, as a "a leading US based digital marketing company" they should show up for their business name. No results found after five pages seached in Google, Fail! Also the email was received from a Gmail account.

I received another email exactly the same except for the first line, company name, and the person name:

My name is _____ and I am Online Marketing Manager at a leading Aussie based digital marketing company which specialises in SEO (Google Rankings) and Web Design. We are your one-stop-shop for all Online Marketing and Advertising.

Sincerely, _____ _____ _____gmail.com


SEO Web Page Information Comments: Google states "Beware of SEOs that claim to guarantee rankings". Another claim to the top of search engines using a proprietary ("possesses, owns, or holds exclusive right") method from a Gmail account.

Hello,

My name is _____, I work as a Search Specialist for a Marketing Company in Sydney, anyway I came across your site while doing some research in your industry.

Cut a long story short I think I can help your website rank on Search Engines a lot easier. I have compiled a 17 page website audit which lists all the areas that your website needs improvement in.

Would you be interested in this 17 page Website Audit?

I am happy to send it through at no cost of course all I want is the opportunity to call you to see if we can help

Are you free this week to discuss?

Kind Regards,

_____ | Digital Marketing Specialist


SEO Web Page Information Comments: I received two of these emails 56 minutes apart from two different people, working for the same company.

Why would two people from the same company both be creating a 17 page report before they even contacted us? Would this not be a waste of company resources?

Why would you you have the subject of the email being the url to the website? Most often the subject is the subject of the email.

This sounds like a automatic generated email that picks a person name at random. Both emails are from a Gmail account.

The big red flag item was that they included their company name in the email and when I searched for the company name I didn't find their business on several pages of Google.

Hum, your company does not show up in search, your work title is a "Search Specialist" and you want me to have you work on my site, No thanks!

Title: Google's Latest Update Will Crush or Supercharge Your Business Website

Body: John,

Today, Google is implementing an algorithm change that can make or break your website. This update is based solely on whether Google deems your site mobile-friendly or not.

We want to bring this to your attention because whether your site is optimized for mobile or not, this change will effect it in one of two ways:

  • Non mobile-friendly sites will start to see their rankings on Google fall and traffic diminish in the coming weeks if they do not take the right steps to prevent this from happening.
  • Mobile-friendly sites will have the opportunity to take hold of higher rankings that competitors with unoptimized (note: spelling) sites leave behind for a limited amount of time.

Luckily, Google has provided some resources for businesses to adapt to this change including a tool that will test if Google considers your website mobile-friendly. I highly recommend that you test this at your earliest convenience.

If you have any other questions about this update, please don't hesitate to get in touch!

Best,

Business address information


SEO Web Page Information Comments: OK, this isn't a SEO spam email but it is another spam email!

They did provide full business contact information, etc. but I did noticed that all the links in the email went through their marketing website, even the links to Google so if I click on any one it would of been tracked and I most likely will get a flood of spam.

The date Google announced for the search engine change was April 21 2015 and the email was received on the same day.

So, I decided to test their own home page with Googles Mobile-Friendly Test (no personal information is gathered with this link) and it did pass the Google Mobile test. But! I noticed that most the text on their website was on the small size for a mobile device. The recommended font size for mobile is minimum 16px, theirs was .9em (smaller size) and would be difficult to read on some devices.

They also had the following html code in the home page header section <meta name='viewport' content='width=device-width, minimum-scale=1.0, maximum-scale=1.0' /> which would prevent someone from zooming in to read the small font.

The website that this email was entended for does pass the Google Mobile Test and does have a font size that is readable for mobile devices.

Are There Good SEO Email Offers?

I've been asked "Where are the good samples of SEO email offers?"

Unfortunately I have not received any emails which would fall in the good category. I did receive one email which I was going to posted as a good sample but when I replied to the email and I never got an answer, I decided that they couldn't make it to the good list.

Wait...

I've might of received a good email for SEO services. See #43 and #53.

SEO Web Page Information Comments: Wow! A email with a business website and the email is from the business url. Also a Skype id to contact, email, website this is a first! Yes there are a few typos such as 'I phone' should be 'iPhone' etc.

So I took a look at their website:

  • Website looks Ok, responsive design for today's smart devises (smart phone, tablet, desktop, etc.), this is good!
  • Website has an contact phone number. Great for communications!
  • Viewing the web page source code I determine the webpage was created with WordPress CMS.

  • I noticed an old fashion counter for site visits. Each time I refreshed the page the counter increments, so it's of no value.
    spamemail41-1 spamemail41-2
    (You would figure a company with 75+ IT professionals would have a website with more than 2300 visits!)
    I'm starting to lose faith in a possible good SEO service provider.
  • Next I decided the test their site with my SEO tool and several others, my SEO tool was able to analyse the site and some other tools that test what a website would look like with a smart device were able to test but many couldn't.
  • Looking at some of the test results:
    • No page description - ops, there should of been a page description, see Google recommendations.
      spamemail41-4
    • Looking at their use of header tags, ops using the <h1> 10 times on a page is a major mistake!
      spamemail41-5
  • I decided to test with some common website tools:

There was hope but after looking at their own website, I wouldn't want them working on one of my websites.

If you are in the SEO business, make sure your own website is SEOed!

SEO Web Page Information Comments: Wow! A email with a business website and the email is from the business url. Also a Skype id to contact, email, website this is a second!

"I tried calling you yesterday", ops! Don't make a statement which is not true, today's phones with voice mail, call display, etc. can tell a lot about a business.

I then did a search on their phone number and found it is associated with more than one website (different domain names and business names).

So I took a look at their websites:

  • At first their website looked impressive but on the first item I clicked on the page didn't load and failed :-(
  • "Our employee's works in states time zone" The last time I checked there isn't a states time zone, United States has nine standard time zones (mainland has five) :-(
  • "250+ employee's bandwidth" I never heard of employees being called bandwidth before, maybe a new term
  • "3500+ responsive websites" Ok, lets test your websites with Google Mobile-Friendly Test. Oh, this is bad, bad, bad! Both of their websites failed the Google Mobile-Friendly Test. :-( :-(
  • "core competency" core competency can be thought of as "a harmonized combination of multiple resources and skills that distinguish a firm in the marketplace", unfortunately I did not find this with these websites
  • One domain was Created on 2015-04-06 - Expires on 2016-04-06
  • The other domain was Created on 2014-08-14 - Expires on 2015-08-14
  • One year domain registry, looks like spammers
  • One registrant is associated with ~80,415 other domains, oh yes this must be a spammer!

There was hope but after looking at their own website, I wouldn't want them working on one of my websites.

If you make a claim, make sure your own website lives up to the claim!

SEO Web Page Information Final Comments

Usually, these emails come from public email providers, such as Gmail or Yahoo, and don't mention their company name. Some of them do claim to have hundreds of employees. If this was true, I'm sure they could afford to have a company website and a company email domain.

These guys are making a bad name for those that specialize in search engine optimization (SEO) and provide beneficial services.

I have heard many stories from clients and friends who have used these companies due to the low costs offered ($4.00 USD per hour). All of them have regretted it in the end.

Don't get fooled by these Spam SEO Offers, do your research and find SEO firms and web consultants which will answer your questions (suggested by Google) and help your website.

More SEO Warning Signs

Here are some more warning signs that you will want to watch out for from a SEO company.

  • They say they get special information from the search engines on how things work.
  • A Free (large amount of dollars) report.
  • They won't tell you what they are doing or how they are going to do it.
  • Closely related to the previous warning sign, if the company does talk to you about what they are doing, but they're not able to help you understand what they are doing.
  • The guarantees sound too good to be true.
  • They treat SEO as if it's special work that is done in a vacuum.
  • They have too many clients for the SEO team lead, how much time is spent with your website?
  • They propose to create lots of pages using some form of automation. Remember GIGO "Garbage in , Garbage out".
  • The proposal focuses on creating lots of inbound links to your site, just like the previous warning, GIGO.
  • The proposal that talks about "submissions", "listing your site", or "adding your site to many search engines". Look at your web traffic logs and you will see that your web traffic only comes from a few search engines.
  • The pricing seems too good to believe (see $2.27 USD per hour above). Quality SEO work costs real dollars.
  • Any proposal that talks about price per link. Inbound links should be about quality, not quantity.
  • They say they have inside info on the next change the search engines are implementing, or they know the latest changes the search engines made.
