Often I can’t believe my eyes that some really bad SEO ends up with contract for big corporate clients. Big corporations doesn’t understand the web very well for the most part and a lot of people are making a killing selling them bullshit. But worst than that, some company have their reputation damaged and search engine ranking ruined because they hired the bad SEO company. I was checking my spam e-mail when i’ve found something pretty funny.

So if i understand well, that girl named Sophy Jhonston want a link from a blog I’m collaborating on (Go-Referencement, which talk about SEO and Web Marketing in general) to point on Honda.co.uk (definitly a client). In exchange, I will get a link from a sub-page on a PR3 MFA. Deal of the Century ! Go-Referencement being a PR5, even that, I don’t give a dam about PageRank, but why in hell would I want a backlink from an english cars Made for AdSense spammy website ? My guess is she (they) are using good old spam to find fish in the ocean that will accept the deal. If your email tell me it’s not spam, it probably is. If I would have hired this SEO campany and being somewhere responsable for the internet marketing of Honda in the UK, I would be scared, very scared …
PS. All links are on No Follow, sorry but I don’t appreciate being spammed
