Another one of those ‘we can make your website better’ messages hits the webmaster mailbox, and gets the almost standard reply. This time the SEO Expert writes:
I’ll take this opportunity to introduce myself, my name is E.B., very nice to meet you. I’m SEO expert working at ***.

My LinkedIn page
and the reply:
Dear Mr Brown,
many thanks for your offer to improve the ratings and global position of viktoriamichaelis.com.
As you know, from checking out the site, Ms Michaelis has no interest in commercial links whatsoever and, from this point of view alone, your offer is of little interest.
From a second point of view: Ms Michaelis rates a minimum of 400 visitors each and every day of the week, has a Google Rank of 3 (very good for a non-commercial site), backlinks (through Yahoo search) numbering 16,756 and a 3 month rating of 363,868 (today’s figure) from Alexa. Your website has an Alexa ranking of 2,316,501, to highlight just one fact. Perhaps when you have a ranking better than that of the site you are making your offer to…
At least this sales attempt came close to good English usage but still, I like it when politeness comes across clearer than the sarcasm intended.
Love & Kisses, Viki.
