Victim of SEO Optimization

The only traffic to my website is from people creating external links
#firstworldproblem

So part of my job is to do SEO optimization. It is not my entire job, but it is one of the items in my toolbox that I use on a regular basis. Well, on our family website that I never update, Telford Family dot org, I started to get some comments on a post I did on our camping and outdoors nursery linking to a couple mural websites. Well, it turns out that the post is the number one search term for “camping nursery” on google. Since we had such a high ranking, some SEO expert was out there trying to improve their site’s score by including a link from my thread, or at least real traffic from people viewing the link.

I went in and moderated the comments down, but maybe, for good karma, I should have let them stay. Someone might do the same for one of my clients some day.
