Some of you may already be wondering, or are aware that the term SEO has become a bad keyword, at least here in the UK.
The problem showed up earlier last year, a lot of clients no longer search for the term SEO, because they get spammed by different companies offering their services. Website promotion companies are now using terms like Digital Marketing Agency, Digital Marketing Company to name but a few.
The main problem is whatever search term you use, those not so good spammers will pick up on the terms and use those, so hence in a few years the same problem will arise again.
How can you solve the problem?
Simply hope the spammer’s die of boredom, or clients actually phone the company, view case studies and talk to companies or individuals who have had services done by the spammer company. In reality I doubt it will ever go, because there are marketing companies and individuals who farm emails from websites and sell this to companies saying they are a warm or hot list, these companies they mass mail them over and over again.
You can of course filter them to junk, but these spammers almost always use Google Mail (gmail) they simply create new emails and send again. One hope is that Google, Yahoo and all the other companies that provide emails have some way to help stop this.
