TheWebClinic.co.uk - the new B-1st
Thewebclinic.co.uk - the new name for b-1st.com
I was checking out a blog article that I wrote last month about a company that was using spam emails that contained outright lies and misleading information, by the name of b-1st.com, and I find that they have changed their name to thewebclinic.co.uk since my article hit the front page of Google. There is a 301 redirect from b-1st.com to thewebclinic.co.uk in place.
I don’t take credit for them changing their brand identity, as the owners bought the domain name, thewebclinic.co.uk, two weeks prior to my article being sent out (although they appear to claim to have been going since 1999 on their About-us page, with no mention of B-1st.com).It would seem, therefor, that they sent out one last load of spam emails from b-1st.com, just before closing their website down and redirecting it to thewebclinic.co.uk. Did they plan to fleece a load of unsuspecting website owners and then close the website down before re-opening as thewebclinic.co.uk - surely not? I’m sure that the timing was just unfortunate and that any b-1st customers would be taken over by thewebclinic.co.uk.
Thewebclinic.co.uk’s new website is well-written and visually attractive and they claim to be an ethical company. If that’s true, we forgive you for your spammy past and genuinely wish the people at the web clinic in Lancaster, every success with their new website.
I shouldn’t think that the web clinic will continue sending spammy, misleading emails out in order to attract business, but if they have not reformed and you do receive one from thewebclinic.co.uk, I would be interested to hear about it.
