That headline is English for the term: “absolute shite!”, by the way.
I get them. You get them. We ALL get them.
Most of them are not worth the digital space they inhabit and therefore deserve not even a passing mention. But… When you get a “so called” link request out of the blue from someone asking you to link to their portable toilets…
See below, they’re even boasting about a toilet page with PR 7 – what’s that? PissRank!
We are interested in exchanging links with your site. We are a portable toilet rental & luxury portable toilet site with a home page Google PR of 7 ( next release expecting to be 8 ). As our link exchange system cannot process links until after a reciprocal link has been set up please add our link to your site and send us your linking information.
Here is our linking details:
Title: Search Engine Marketing with SpiderSplat Consulting, Inc.
http://www.spidersplat.com/” target=”_blank”>Search Engine Marketing with SpiderSplat Consulting, Inc
We’ve got several PR 6 and 7 websites, so we expect this site to become at least a PR 8 within 1 month. I hope this can be a way for us to benefit our visitors with excellent content.
Hope to hear from you soon.
And what on earth do they mean with the last line of their email?
“I hope this can be a way for us to benefit our visitors with excellent content.”
A link from a page about how people can take a dump when they’re on the move will be valuable to my customers? And sure, of course I’d be delighted to put a link to your search engine optimization site before you link back to me from your toilets. That sounds perfectly reasonable… Yeah!
Are they really being serious here? We all know what goes in toilets. And that’s exactly where this email should go.
Ladies and gentlemen of search, do we really have to be associated with this sort of crap? I mean, I don’t usually react so badly because with most of them I can just hit the delete button. But this one really does take the cake (or should that be crepe 🙂
