How to stop seo spam in?
« on: 12-29-2011, 21:19:34 »

Like any webmaster, I try to find ways to combat spam.  I use a host of tools that do a great job in keeping it minimal, especially the automated garbage.  Still, a few nonsense things get through. After scratching my head wondering how to stop these stragglers got in?

After a couple of years being spammed by seo marketers from India (with gmail addresses) claiming to be able to get my site highly ranked in Google using "white hat" techniques, I've finally decided to block all emails coming from India.

Seems like a pretty drastic measure to take but I figured that most folks from India probably shouldn't really have any interest in my websites anyway and prior to the surge of seo spam, I never had a genuine correspondance regarding my site from anyone in India before.

Looking good so far. No more emails claiming to have a "suggestion for your website" from people who have no idea what my website does but nevertheless are "interested to increase traffic to your website".

Seems to save me a minute or two each day deleting these emails which I can spend on posting a topic to Webmasterworld.
