As an SEO company we get many offers from overseas organisations who want to be our SEO partners. Here's a quote from a recent email.
"Myself ****** a SEO freelancer from India and I can provide you a quality link building services. I have a huge Database of Websites for quality link building with me. I have an experience of more then 2 year in SEO firm."
So in short we could hire this chap and we'd get hundreds of links for ourselves or our clients and these links may well help our sites to rank better. I'm not blaming Google for the growth of the link building industry as I honestly believe they are working flat out to address the situation but what's an honest SEO to do?
It's gone way beyond a joke and I don't see it getting better any time soon. Anyone got any thoughts?
