My name is webmaster, and I run the web site Car Hire in Larnaca:
Seriously, the spammer's name is "webmaster"? He addressed me as "webmaster too. Trying to create a feeling of sameness or just stupid?...I'm going with stupid.
WhoIs shows a proxy registration so I can't tell who the email is from that way either.
I recently found your site xxxxx and am very interested in
exchanging links. I've gone ahead and posted a link to your site, on this
I looked here and have no idea where among the tons of spammy links they posted is the one they are talking about.
As you know, reciprocal linking benefits both of us by raising our search
rankings and generating more traffic to both of our sites. Please post a
link to my site as follows:
Title: Car Hire in Larnaca
Description: Spammer whom I wouldn't do business with on a bet. This description has been changed to make it more accurate.
I love being sent unasked for information on the "benefits" of reciprocal links by some spammer whose site shows zero backlinks. Reciprocal links from spammer's sites aren't worth anything. Links from linkfarm pages like the one this idiot has may even damage your ranking on search engines.
Once you've posted the li! nk, let me know the URL of the page that it's on,
by entering it in this form:
Why is there a "!" in the word "link"? Am I supposed to click in the middle of saying it?
You can also use that form to make changes to the text of the link to your
site, if you'd like.
Thank you very much,
Almost all of the emails I get like this have the same wording about reciprocal links or assure me that our sites "definately" are related. They appear to come from LinkMachine.
Why would any reputable business use this garbage to spam people? I replied to one once to say that we don't link to spammers and got an unreprintable reply.Posted by marybeth at April 22, 2010 12:18 PM Internet
