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.
