Contracted to Request Bad Backlink Removal - Sender Address

What email address is best for third party requesting link removal



5:50 pm on Dec 12, 2013 (gmt 0)

I'm involved with a campaign to remove bad backlinks for which the clients google ranking is penalized.

There is are three parties involved; me, an SEO company based in Dehli, India and the Client. The SEO company requested email login credentials so as to send the Link Removal Requests from webmaster@client.com, but the client doesn't want to release the info for security reasons. They suggest sending from webmaster@ and they will forward responses.

I had initially sent a few link removal requests from a gmail account with good results from anyone who responded.

Possibly my_name@client.com or seo@client.com - and sending via mail.client.com would be the most sensible.

Insights welcome.

I would always assume that any request from a third party address was malicious.

Thank you, piatkow. Do you think there might be a conflict also with sending from an address that differs from the send.mail address, as in from webmaster@client.com via mail.seocompany.com?

welcome to WebmasterWorld, mZoo!

your biggest signal of trust will be a @client.com email address.
it's okay if you cc: your @seocompany.com email address, but the email should originate from the smtp.client.com server.
