    I get loads telling me they'll get me on the first page of Google. Pity they didn't check first. I'm already on first page. Love to know what there uptake is, surely no one replies to them !

    It's funny how many use a gmail email address, and no website. If I was that good I'd be showing people I could do it, not hiding behind a gmail address!

    Lolz, I get the same. If your website actually is on page 2 or 3, then these numptys are doing a lot of searching.

    You can't stop them all but you can minimise it. Ensure any that are spam you mark as such. Also if you have a contact form on your site ensure you use a captcha like google recapcha to catch some of them before the email is sent.
