Ignore it! Why you ask?

Unknown Company

The name of the company is not included in the email. Typically a reputable company will include their Name, Email Address, a working phone number, and a street address of their business.

Can you trust this company?

Have you ever heard of this company before? Do they have a WORKING phone number? Are they even real?

Can you trust the sender?

A good email system and a bit of searching would tell you that the ip address is from another domain and if you do a quick search on the reply to email address that this person or "SEO" company has been email spamming, forum spamming and more.

Is this company in America?

There's a good chance you are receiving this message in America, so the chances of you getting any money back from them is laughable. Unless you just want to throw your money into a hole, then leave them alone. Find a local SEO company that you can hold accountable if you are unsatisfied with the results.

Even Google gets these spam emails

Web consultants or agencies that send you email out of the blue.

Google says:

Be wary of SEO firms and web consultants or agencies that send you email out of the blue.

Amazingly, we get these spam emails too:

"Dear google.com,
I visited your website and noticed that you are not listed in most of the major search engines and directories..."

Reserve the same skepticism for unsolicited email about search engines as you do for "burn fat at night" diet pills or requests to help transfer funds from deposed dictators.

Poor Grammer

Excessively poor grammar is a dead giveaway to the reliability of what is supposed to be a reputable company.

Asks you to reply

Replying ANYTHING back is a bad idea because many times it lets the sender know you are a real person and that the email address they are spamming is valid.

Communication contains suspicious links

Links can hide a lot of information. Some links have query string attached to them that mask hidden data that may give a spammer some indication that your email address is valid.

Email address spammed from domain registrar

Your email address was likely gotten from a domain registrar 'whois' lookup.

Deceptive Subject

Subject line may read "Your order is complete" when the mail has nothing to do with an order. It is simply a mechanism to coax you open the email or attachment.

Ignore it! Ignore it!

Sometimes the spam is intended to hurt the reputation of a competitor. That's why it's best to simply ignore email spam altogether.
