I am receiving loads of queries from traffic magnet asking whether I want to be submitted to 300,000 search engines. Is anyone else receiving this spam and can you tell where it is coming from? I guess they must either be spidering or picking up on our submissions to one of the engines.
It's the listing in ODP probably. I recently did a site that's only been online for a week. Submitted to ODP and luckily got listed within a couple of days. Two days after that client forwards me the email asking why he's not in ALL the engines within 10 days. arrgh!! :)
Out of curiosity, are they being sent to email addresses in your domains' whois information? I got 1 of these once, I replied pretending to be a lawyer and said some stuff about spam and about copyright violation of my website (from the snapshot). The snapshot disappeared quickly and no more emails.
