Dear google.com

While reading through Google's excellent online manual on search engine optimizations/optimizers [SEO's - basically about getting your sites placed higher on search engine results] I came across this wonderful excerpt:

Be wary of SEO firms that send you email out of the blue. Amazingly, we get
these spam emails too:

"Dear google.com,I visited your website and noticed that
you are not listed in most of the major search engines and directories..."

Reserve the same skepticism for unsolicited email about search engines as you do
for "burn fat at night" diet pills or requests to help transfer funds from
deposed dictators.
