spam link-building

I received another time-wasting link email from this morning, boasting about their PR4 site and then offering me a link from a 3-way linkbuilding farm page on When I wrote back to “SEO Manager” at Mayuri - yep, the guy didn’t even bother to stick his name on the email, to inform him that he was offering me a shite link that wasn’t even cached in Google and tell him to stop wasting my time, Mr Mayuri stated to get arsey and keeps sending me emails to complain that I don’t want to link back to his buytemplates 3 way link farm!

I may be overly direct when replying to link requests from Indian linkbuilding companies like and I don’t blame the Mayuri employee that sent the email - he is just doing what he has been told to do and probably has two month’s experience in the job. I accept that. I do however get particularly pissed off with time-wasters, who at best, don’t do their job properly and at worst, deliberately mislead people into exchanging links with them.

The Mayuri employee offered me a link from that wasn’t even cached in Google, which, in anybody’s book, is a waste of space, underhand and an insult to the website owner receiving the link request. After I pointed out that this was a shite link and not to waste my time, all of a sudden he emailed me to say he had sent me the wrong link and wanted me to link to another page! How naieve is he - and how desperate are for links?

Mayori are an Indian web design company and to be fair, they have a fairly good looking site but Mayuri also offer a link-building service to their clients - I don’t think I’ll be joining the queue for their services anytime soon.

SEO is an ever changing landscape, different things work at different times and it does you no good whatsoever to listen to the pro-SEOs pontificating about what they were told at SEO conventions or from reading Cutts’ blog. Or from spamming other SEOs’ blogs?
