Today I received the first comments on my lanyard blog, the only problem is that all three were spam! Two came from Asia the 3rd from Brazil.
They left their kind words along with a link to their site. Two of the sites were about shoes, the 3rd was some brazil web mail. I sent the comments straight to the spam section.
These random blog posts on irrelevant sites were exactly what got out first lanyard and name tag websites cast into google hell to begin with.
To all those who outsource your seo be sure to have them report on which back links they are building. It is vital that you only have trusted sites that are relevant pointing back to your website!
