If you’ve run a semi popular site with a visible email or contact form then you’ve likely seen your fair share of spam. For years now my contact form has been getting assaulted by fellow SEOs, sometimes trying the latest tactics they cobbled together from their favorite SEO blogs.
You could say my blog is a sort of honey pot for these messages. In the past I would just laugh at them, even once and a great while maybe have an idea sparked, but mostly I’d ignore them. That’s up until now, now I had the great idea to post the best ones here so we can all laugh at them together!
Here they are in their raw beauty, I have categorized them:
Advertising Enquiry jacobking.com

Do let me know

Hope you are doing well. My name is Daniel Bailey, I really love to read every bit of your blog . I am planning to do a sponsor post in your blog. jacobking.com I was hoping if we could make the deal.
The way you have been maintaining your website, really appreciated. I can assure you that the article would be insightful and professionally written. I believe that your targeted audience will be interested in our content.
I would like to hear from you.
Hi! Do you accept sponsored posts?! And if so, what is your absolute minimum for a quality and relevant post written by us?
Love your content! (and a proposal)
Hope you are doing well! As an avid reader of your blog, I was thinking your readers might like to read something about “SEO and Security: Why it Matters”.
Your content on “The Black Hat SEO Community for Real Badasses” is awesome, but I think it would be cool to tie it all together with a piece about “Why You Need a VPN for SEO” or maybe “How to Protect Yourself While Building Links”.
If you’re too busy to blog about it, I’d love to write it for you – I’m a blogger for www.securethoughts.com with tons of experience. I just had a post featured on http://www.jeffbullas.com/2015/11/03/7-fundamental-security-errors-bloggers-must-stop-making/ and http://colorlabsproject.com/blog/surfing-through-your-smartphone-is-it-safe/.
Let me know if you are interested. I already know your blogging style, plus I understand what your readers love as I am one ;-)
Looking forward to hearing from you,
—And another, she sure is persistent

How’s it going – it’s been a while!
I’m working on a monster ecommerce SEO post for my blog, Bootstrapping Ecommerce, and was wondering if you would like to provide a quote. I will link to your site and social profile, of course.
The question is: “What is an unconventional way you come up with keywords?”
Any length is fine, and you can send it over anytime this week.

A friendly suggestion for your roundup
Not to be too forward (although I probably kind of am, LOL), but I thought you might like my piece for your SEO roundup.
It’s actually a roundup itself of the most entertaining (but still edifying) blogs in SEO. Just a way of showing people out there that what we do isn’t totally boring. :)
It’s here: https://www.leapfroggr.com/10-most-entertaining-seo-blogs/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+leapfroggr+(Leapfroggr+Search+Engine+Marketing+Blog)
Anyway, just thought it might be a good fit. Thanks either way. :)

Asking for Links But not Upfront
An exeriment about digital marketing.
My name is Igor Rudnyk. I found your blog on the web and I was impressed with amount of high-quality information on it, that’s why I decided to write you.
I represent the company brandcitations.com – a service for natural link building and increasing brand awareness.

Quick Suggestion for “Why Your Tiered Links Won’t Rank Shit”
I’ll keep this short because I know you get a ton of emails from people looking for your feedback.
I came across your site today and really enjoyed “Why Your Tiered Links Won’t Rank Shit”. Excellent work on putting this together!
I was going through the resources you mentioned and noticed Matthew Woodward’s “The Ultimate Guide To Tiered Link Building Part 1” on the page.
I also really appreciated that resource as well!
In fact, it was one that inspired me to create a more thorough and up to date version.
I’d love to share it with you if you’re interested, do you mind if I send you the link?
–this guy might be confused, quite a few from him lol, nice subject line
I was doing some research today because I’m looking for top link building resources and strategies.
I came across JACOB KING. Incredible work! I really enjoy your refreshing perspective.
I actually just finished the final touches on an infographic covering strategies on how to build links like the pros. (My infographics have been featured on Huffington Post and other top publications).
Since your site is an excellent resource, I thought you’d find some use out of it :)
Let me know if you want to check it out. I’d love to send it your way.
You’re starting to piss me off
… Nah, not really.
But Im gonna be brown nosing a bit here and tell you that i really find your / your companys blog a great read. It’s time for a update Jacob! Kings take on social signals or footprints regarding whois info would be bound be a great blogpost.

I’m developing a list of customer service best practices and I’d love to hear your thoughts. I am a huge fan of http://www.jacobking.com/ and your expert feedback would be invaluable.
Would you have a chance to provide some quick feedback if I send you the link?

Well there you have it, some funny and some that you might be able to use. And from now on I will only add the best ones that I see come in. One final tip to leave you with when it comes to outreach. Put yourself in the persons shoes you’re emailing. Do you have anything for them? Or are you just totally wasting their time and asking for something?
You see with “broken link building” you’re at least helping the person fix some shit on their site. It’s an exchange. The trick is to find other clever ways to create this at scale and you’ve likely got yourself a winning horse. And maybe you’ll think twice about dropping a blast of blanket outreach spam as it might wind up here in the hall of fame!
