Most techies within the Internet space will see this as a con just by looking at the header of the email but for the small business owner this could look like a legitimate bill for services.
Well its not – its a slimy ‘solicitation’ from Domain Services.
These low-lifes offer some BS service they call ‘SEARCH SUBMISSIONS’ and send the registered person of the domain an email which is designed to look like a bill, thats my opinion of course but take a look below.
To me this is unethical and well below the professionalism I expect from a business offering services to me. The fact that the return email address is a hotmail account is more than enough proof that they don’t run what I consider to be a professional business. They are in the web space offering ‘search submission’ services for your domain and they don’t even have a web site or use an email address with their domain!
What is ‘SEARCH SUBMISSIONS’ anyway? I am not an SEO ‘expert’ but I know a little and I don’t have a clue what they are rambling on about which means I would not go near them. The only reference I can see in the email as to what, exactly, is the service is this statement in the fine print.
Search engine submission is an optional service that you can use as a part of your website optimization and alone may not increase the traffic to your site.
Okay – so I give this business $75.00 USD minimal and I have no clue what for.
If you receive an email like this delete it.
