New Addition to the BlindMonkeyMedia.com Website

blog_online_directory-300x165We have just added an online resources directory to the BlindMonkeyMedia website in order to keep up with the demand for link exchanges. Yes, our webmasters were getting a bit stressed with the demand for people wanting a link exchange so we thought we would just make it on everyone and us.

Block Blog Spam Comment Post – Popular Spam Terms

For anyone that has a website, blog or forum that is tired of receiving hundreds of spam comments in the blog, this post is for you.

The annoying part is that it if y...

This brings me to the point of this blog entry.  How can people expect to get hired for a job if they don’t even put any efforts into applying for a job or even follow directions.

Let me give you an example.  This is what one person sent us:

SEO Backlink Tips

As my team of SEO experts create quality and valuable backlinks for our clients, we noticed a trend which is concerns us in terms of the SEO industry as the backlinks that other people create are very poor in quality and have no ranking value.

We usually would not be giving out SEO back link tips but as SEO companies create bad and useless backlinks, this effects the whole industry and makes the SEO industry look like a bunch of charlatans and ripp-off artists.

SEO companies have to realize that they have a responsibility when it comes to providing SEO services as our actions is what defines us a good industry or as a bad one.

Its difficult enough getting clients that are willing to pay our rates but it makes it 100 times harder to convince a potential client to use your SEO services when ...
