Listen to a Recorded Call from One of Those Spam SEO Emails You Receive And See What It’s All About
More traffic? Top keyword ranking in Google? Better SEO (search engine optimization)?
Call it what you will, but I’m guessing you want all of that.
And rightfully so!
Running a pet sitting business with your website as your huge marketing tool takes work, effort, time and knowledge.
Many of us struggle just to keep up with the pet sitting visits, let alone have time to focus on the business side of things, right?
Check Your Email for Your Saving Grace (?)
Spam email continues to be a big annoyance, but it now comes in all shapes and sizes. Including spamming your inbox for SEO services.
You have no doubt received an unsolicited email like the one below that aims to “answer your prayers with SEO.”
I decided to Call the Company for more Info!
Curiosity killed the cat. And I decided to actually call the company back to give them a chance to hear them out.
I have beeped out any identifying information.

This Is How I Help
The bottom line is that you need to be careful who you work with. Yes, learning SEO can be scary, confusing, and time consuming.
Remember that Google is very particular with what they are looking for in a quality site (and it’s in that quality site that allows you to rank well for your chosen keywords).
I spend my days helping pet sitters in all aspects of growing and nurturing their business. Most specifically, my passion is in helping you create a more effective website. This approach is never “one and done” – meaning there are not one or two things you should do to your website to complete your SEO and marketing efforts.
Your website is an ever-evolving process. And it’s an ever changing process. Google is continuously restructuring their factors that allow a website to rank well.
However, the biggest factor is always creating a… well, I’ll allow Google themselves to tell you 😉

Give visitors the information they’re looking for
Provide high-quality content on your pages, especially your homepage. This is the single most important thing to do. If your pages contain useful information, their content will attract many visitors and entice webmasters to link to your site. In creating a helpful, information-rich site, write pages that clearly and accurately describe your topic. Think about the words users would type to find your pages and include those words on your site.
Over To You
So, what are your thoughts on all this? What do you make of the phone call? Have you received emails that promise SEO success?
Painful to listen to.
Great recording..great questions Josh. I am able to manage my website and have been given all the seo info by my web designer but it does need constant maintenance and and research. This guy seems to know his stuff , I was wondering how much your phone call cost his company ( in his time ) and he didn’t get any kudos. Maybe a link for anyone who would be interested in using his service, as there is no committment to a year or anything. It seems they start with finding key words…what program do you use, or I wonder do they use. Market Samurai is one I have used.
I have had experiences with Indian companies doing work for us and have had some excellent work done. I wouldn’t personally use them for SEO work as the standard of English isn’t where I would want it to be and believe in writing your own content. But for web design etc they are good, extremely quick and very polite and obliging.
