Rude SEO People

Rude SEOs

This post is just me venting my feelings about certain people who come to me asking me to do things for them. Specifically, it's about me agreeing to publish a crappy guest post for an Indian SEO company. 

I didn't really like it that much, but I thought it would be good for some content on this site, so I published it here, and not on my main site, because I didn't think it was good enough for my main site, and there's also nothing wrong with this blog either. 

She immediately told me that it wasn't good enough, and I had to delete it right away, because they only wanted guest posts from sites that had at least a page rank of 2, and a domain authority of over 25. 

That's not all that easy to achieve by the way, a site with those stats. I've been working on this blog for about a year now, updating it fairly regularly, and making back links here and there, and it's not past a PR 0 yet. 

Most of my sites and blogs that I build take a lot of work to build a high page rank, and page rank isn't really an important factor in ranking anyway, it just shows that you've made a lot of back links to it, not how good those links are. 

So I said to her, I spent an hour of my time doing you a favor, and I didn't even get anything out of it in return, just a spam guest post on my site that I'm ashamed of. 

Why can't you give me something for my time, if you expect me to build links to your site? I was hoping that she might agree that my time was worth something, and give me something in exchange for me doing this work for her. 

Why I'm Fed Up With SEOs

As I explained in a previous post, allowing guest posts on my site has not been beneficial for me at all, it has actually hurt my rankings fairly badly. 

The reason is, some really dodgy SEO people have not changed their linking practices in years, even though it very obviously doesn't work anymore. 

They continue to use spam software and build links from stupid places that just cause your rankings to fall sharply. It's like they don't have a brain, or can't understand English or something. 

So they build links to my site because I've allowed them to publish a guest post on my site, to build a link pyramid, but what they're actually doing is permanently damaging my site, and theirs. 

Then I get these rude SEOs expecting me to give up my time for them, and publish their spam crap on my site and then they're not happy with me publishing it, and want it back, when I've spent an hour of my time doing them a favor. 

It boils my bones, that's all I'm saying. I'm pretty much done with the whole guest post idea. If someone has a really high quality guest post to publish, and will agree not to build links to it, (except maybe quality links from sites I specify), then I might consider it, maybe. 

Generally speaking, having anything to do with those horrible SEOs from India who send spam emails out to everyone is the biggest mistake you can ever make. 

Sure Google may not recognize straight away that the post is just rubbish, but they will when they see the bounce rate. 

It's not worth having rubbish on your site, and I implore everyone to be very wary of SEOs who do nothing but fill the internet up with junk. 

I think I said everything I wanted to say there. Oh yeah, do you like the cover photo I made for someone's Facebook page? That's the photo at the top there. By the way, I do almost anything and everything, especially to do with social media pages

You can get in contact with me through the photo link at the top of the sidebar, which leads to my main site.
