Idiots from Crusie.co.uk

Posted by geeknews at 1:49 AM on August 28, 2013

For the second time in two weeks, I have told these folks (Prodo Digital) that we do not remove links from our website. The article in question was a legitimate blog post, and actually recommends this company as one to check out..

Look at this email from these idiots.

My name is Lloyd and I work for a digital marketing agency, representing Cruise.co.uk.

I am writing to request the removal of a link to my clients’ site, following an unnatural links warning from Google, which is located on the following pages of your website:

http://www.geeknewscentral.com/2010/06/
http://www.geeknewscentral.com/2010/06/30/over-50s-get-online-in-uk/
http://www.geeknewscentral.com/category/internet/page/7/
http://www.geeknewscentral.com/tag/demographics/
http://www.geeknewscentral.com/tag/internet/page/3/

Any help with this matter would be greatly appreciated and if you have any concerns on the validity of this request then please feel free to contact seo@cruise.co.uk.

    What the hell is an unnatural link? Malware?

    I’m opening the pages with Chrome, and it opens just fine, so I don’t think that it is malware.

    No need to remove that. You link using their domain name. That is pretty much safe. Unnatural links mean that they have gathered links for the sole purpose of ranking better in Google and that involves usually links using anchor texts like “buy cars” or “cheap cars” and the sort.

    Tell these guys that it is a false positive and you link using only the domain name and the link won’t be taken down.
