Ghost-Town Marketing Morons: Linxmonster


Three virtually-identical emails from “Anthony Evans” and “Randy Miller” at linxmonster.com:

I was looking at websites under the keyword dui attorney [City] Texas and came across your site . . . . I see that you’re ranked # [X] in Google.

I’m not sure if you’re aware of why you’re ranked this low but more importantly how easily correctable this is.

There’s no reason you can’t have a top three ranking for this keyword based on your site structure and content. You have a very nice site.

. . . .

Each email named a different city — Memphis, Texas (500 miles from Houston); White City, Texas (600 miles from Houston); and Oxford, Texas (300 miles from Houston). After the first email I replied to Anthony Evans at linxmonster, pointing out the distance issue and requesting no further emails. The request was unsuccessful, and the removal link does not work.

Is this like the Nigerian email scams, where they send out 12 million in hopes of getting one positive response?

Or do some lawyers actually look at the emails, think, “gee, I really should be listed higher than number 48 in a search for dui attorneys in a ghost town 600 miles away, higher than number 26 in a search for dui attorneys in a ghost town 300 miles away, and higher than 28 in a search for dui attorneys in a town of 2,500 people 500 miles away!”, and reply to linxmonster?

What kind of lawyer would entrust her marketing to a company as incompetent at marketing itself as linxmonster.

Idiots.

  1. I got one from a different outfit that read:

    I was doing a search for medical malpractice attorney lincoln and came across
    your site turkewitzlaw.com. I see that you’re ranked 47 on page 5.

    I’m not sure if you’re aware of why you’re ranked this low but more importantly how easily correctable this is.

    How would you like to catapult your site to the top of the search results? Dumb question…

    My response:

    Well, it’s not surprising I came up on page 5, given that you were searching for Lincoln.

    I bet if you searched “medical malpractice attorney washington” I wouldn’t come up too high either.

    And “medical malpractice attorney Bush” would surely come in low, but I think we can blame George for that.

    Thanks, but no thanks. I don’t need higher rankings for Lincoln, or any other president.
