If you’re a website owner, then you probably have received an email that looks something like this?

“Hi my name is {insert name here} and I just wanted to drop you a quick note here instead of calling you. I discovered your {Insert website name here} website and noticed you could have a lot more hits. I have found that the key to running a popular website is making sure the visitors you are getting are interested in your subject matter. There is a company that you can get keyword targeted visitors from and they let you try their service for free for 7 days. I managed to get over 300 targeted visitors to day to my website {insert spamy website link}”

So personable aren’t they!

Could this be someone specifically taking to me?


Through our various web properties we see emails like this all the time.

The idea here is that they try to make polite conversation then begin with some promises followed by a “click here”.

Our suggestion: Delete it, its spam.
