Company offering to optimise my t-shirt site...

Rodney and anyone else with a t-shirt site,

This might interest you…

I just got an email from Mark Blazick of Blaze Web Design offering his
services to optimise my site for better high rankings in search engines. He
claims he would achieve first positions in SEs and a free placement in
Yahoo.

What amazed me though was that when searching Google for “website promotion”
they came nowhere near a high rank. Their link popularity is nill too. I
later get an email back from Mark saying that they only submit client sites
to SEs not their own. Seems that they only send out SPAM HTML ridden emails
to get their business.

I got a phone call once from a UK company when I worked at VinMag offering
this same type of service… I turned them down because they cost a fortune
and I had achieved a place in Yahoo and first place rankings myself anyway.
What do you think to this type of company, are they worth investing in…

He seems quite helpful actually.

Adam,

Sounds like a rip-off to me. Why would he not submit his own site to search
engines, when that is what he does for a living? When something sounds too
good to be true…it usually is. The “free placement in Yahoo” immediately
throws up a red flag to me.

  1. I don’t think any company that sends out spam is “worth investing in” :slight_smile:

  2. You could do what he does for free with a little research (that’s what I did)

  3. When he says free placement in yahoo, he probably means google.yahoo.com like
    this:
    http://google.yahoo.com/bin/query?p=offensive+t-shirts

If you have acheived first page placement on your own, I’m curious as to why you
would ask about a company providing those services for a fee.

I get about 25 emails like that I day…most get forwarded to http://spamcop.net

I was just curious to see what you guys had to say about them. I was never
going to take up business with them from the word go.

Re: Company offering to optimise my t-shirt site…

If you want a great site for learning how to get good SE spots, go to
http://selfpromotion.com/ . He will help you get to a high spot (his advice
and on-line software, your thinking and work) and only asks that you send
him $10 IF YOU WANT TO!

I’ll do the same thing. The link above is without my affiliate code, and
this one has it: http://selfpromotion.com/?CF=nathan@mydogmurphy.com . Pick
which one you want to use!

I have done so for three years running because his advice and tools are dead
on.

Re: Re: Company offering to optimise my t-shirt site…

I agree! The guy at selfpromotion.com has been offering a great service for years and a novel (and seemingly effective) payment method (pay if you feel like it was worth something to you).

It’s a lot of words on the site, but definitely worth the read.

Mark Blazick

A word from Mark Blazick. While the T-shirt company http://Buy-Tees.com posted negative comments about my company without even talking to me, they are now out of business, I Mark Blazick, have been in business as an SEO for 11 years attaining and maintaining top placement in the search engines for more than 170 clients across the USA. Blaze Web Design has plenty of references to testify to the great job of SEO services provided by Mark Blazick of Blaze Web Design. This guy Adam should have called and talked to me maybe he wouldn’t be out of business today.
Mark Blazick

Good to know. I have a t-shirt store. www.fabrikastore.com and I’m looking at alternative to promote my site.
I think I got a call from this guy too!
http://www.fabrikastore.com

Actually, this is incorrect. Adam’s buy-tees.com site is still fully operational and in business.

He posted his honest reaction to the marketing tactics used by your company

It may be his honest feelings but he did not state the facts

This T-Shirt Shop owner did not receive a spam email. I actually went to his site and looked it over and then offered our services. If a site say contact with questions or comments about this site then I contact them. Its not like I harvest emails or send out thousands or even hundreds of emails. I pick a few sites that can use help getting top placement. I have people on page 1 on Google, Yahoo, MSN and many other search engines when searching on gift baskets, gourmet gift baskets, wine giift baskets, Diamond engagement rings, diamond pendants, beads and many more extremely competitve categories. I went to his site and I got a page not found error recently. I see his site is up now. The site is ranked on page 3 of Google when searching on custom t-shirts and is not listed in the top 5 pages of Yahoo. The site is not listed in the top 5 pages of Google when searching on bulk blank t-shirts nor is the site found in the first 5 pages of Yahoo when searching on the same. The site could rank better.

Sorry. By many, what you described is considered spam.

It’s called UCE. Unsolicited Commercial Email.

From wikipedia:

I know it may not have been your intent, but I’m just trying to let you know why it was perceived that way by the original poster.
