I forgot to mention this one seo bozo alert last month.
I never got a phone call, but I did get an email from this Bozo. In fact, I'm inviting Rob from ContactBridge to respond to my email here and see what he has to say in his company's defense. This should prove to be very entertaining when he replies.
The email I received is paged below. It starts off saying that this guy Rob, was trying to do some research for a FURNITURE STORE in my area. Okay -- I'm in Santa Fe and I'm NOT in the furniture business. We do virtual tour cameras (of which we're page one #1 and page one #2 on Google for the past seven years)
So this immediately says: SEO BOZO because he didn't do any research on my company.
Idiots and marketing liars are so easy to spot when you're already page one #1 on Google.
Rule of Thumb: NO ETHICAL SEO FIRM IS EVER GOING TO CONTACT YOU THIS WAY. So if you get an email solicitation like this, trash it. Immediately. Don't spend one dime with these kind of firms. Ever.
Danny Sullivan, Bruce Clay, Aaron Wall and Bart Wilson do not solicit customers like this for SEO clients. So if you get this unsolicited email from ContactBridge.com -- trash it. It's no better than the SEO Bozos at MerchantCircle.com or LeapFish.com
I was trying to do some research in your area to look for Furniture store and realized that your store never came up on the Google search either because of the lack of a web presence or your site not being optimized to hit the first page for the search results.
