You cannot always believe what you read, and in SEO you have to be very careful. Take for instance the good folks at OutsourcingforSEO.com . They repeatedly spam Zoomit Canada with non-Canadian submissions. I have deleted several dozen accounts, but they keep creating new ones. They don’t seem to get the message or they are gluttons for fruitless work. They also seem to have figured out a hack to add many more tags per submission than the form allows. One day last month they even created accounts with names like danysulivan8 and leeoden4 and johnbatele4, mimicking the names of high-profile SEO consultants (I know these colleagues to be reputable, but imagine what can happen to their reputations if such accounts are being created elsewhere!). I suppose they thought I might let their submissions pass if I thought somebody respectable was doing the submitting.
Of course, this all must be part of their “Ethical SEO Website Traffic Services”, as seen in the screen capture below that I took just before deleting another of their spam posts.
I think this is the first time I have ever called out another SEO company. It’s not that I haven’t seen plenty of pure spam and plenty of questionable stuff, too. But it’s a slippery slope and I’m not big on rating other SEO consultants. But these guys are so determined to keep spamming Zoomit Canada, over and over and over and over, that I’ll make an exception. If anybody knows of a spammer award, I would love to have this company submitted. After that, committed.
The moral of the story is to be very careful who you hire for SEO services. This company is submitting its client websites, too, exposing them to potential sanctions from the search engines and being banned by other social bookmarking websites, too. You don’t want a purposeful spammer representing your website.Written by David Leonhardt
