I received an unsolicited email today with some real gems in it. The guy, a SENIOR Search Consultant no less, gave me some pointers on where we are going wrong with our website.
Apparently "Your website has 3950 back-links, meaning it's not very popular". Actually it has 455,000 but anyway, and "Right now your site has a Google Pagerank score of 6/10, which is probably one of the main reasons why your site isn’t showing up in the first page of the search results." Actually it's 7 but hey what's one between friends but it was good to find out that this was the reason our site isn't ranking......
The fact that these clueless morons are still doing the rounds no doubt fleecing decent honest, if confused, people makes me want to weep.
