What else are we gonna call it? Honestly, what Jeremy did is the worst thing you can do to someone in the online business, and that is to insinuate negative things, purposely, through a link-bait headline. Case in point.
He wrote, and I quote, ‘Andy Beal Spamming MyBlogLog?’. Link.
For those of you who don’t know Andy Beal, he’s a well-known and respected search engine marketing expert. So to drop a headline with his name, and the word “spamming” together, well, that’s just being a dick. Or as we say in Ohio… Dickish. Sometimes otherwise referred to as well as “being a douchebag”. Nice work Jeremy.
I feel bad for Andy because being a whitehat seo is his business and he has a good name for doing â€œwhitehatâ€ seo work. This is hardly spamming its more like creative marketing (well that is my opinion). Anyway why try to call him out like that? Why not just shoot him a email and save yourself the embaresment after MyBlogLog had already given the ok?
JZ I have so much respect for you as a mysql contributor but I think you were way off on this one man.
Couldn’t agree more SM. With friends like JZ… geez.
