Here is the email I receive:
Get top 10 rankings on Google and Yahoo with proven tools. Get top 10 rankings on Google and Yahoo with ....(obmitted) , the proven website promotion tool.
Thanks for helping this newbie from South Korea :)
rule #1: Don't believe the hype (especially in an unsolicited email)
rule #2: do a google, yahoo etc. SE search for "top 10 ranking proven tools" or similar search you'd expect results on. Do they come up in the top 10?
rule #3: create a spam filter in your email junk mail or antispam program
rule # 4. delete original email without any further action. ;)
rule #5. Check around WebmasterWorld threads for tips and hints on how to really get worthwhile search engine results.
Good luck! :)
I had one of those scammers call me a few weeks ago claiming to be able to get one of my client's sites to top 10 position (he was already ranking in top position so this person hadn't even looked at the site). I asked for samples of their work. Their text was bordering on gibbersih..I.e., keyword stuffing, which visitos will not put up with and can get the site penalized. They only charge $3000 a year for this "service".
