Attorney.org is Latest Phone to Phone Inc. Website to Spam Me
I apologize for the flurry of blog posts on the spam I’m receiving from Phone to Phone Inc. websites, but I’ve found that lots of folks are experiencing the same problem. I’ve already criticized Phone to Phone Inc. for their spam promotion of Newlawyer.com (including my SiteJabber post on Newlawyer.com) and Laws.com, but their relentless spamming continues. I remain very impressed that they have so many different marketing executives at Phone to Phone Inc. (unless, of course, they are lying about the sender’s identity, which I know they wouldn’t do…would they?). Yet, for all of that in-house marketing expertise, apparently none of these executives have successfully convinced Phone to Phone Inc. that their spamming campaign is counterproductive to their long term objectives. Given that, I don’t expect my shaming blog post will convince them either, but a lawsuit, Google de-indexing or a properly organized Googlebomb might be a different story. And I think the company might reconsider the quality of guidance it’s getting from its marketing executives.
Here’s the text of the spam promoting Attorney.org. Uh, no thanks.

subject About Your Blog
My name is Michael Foti and I am the Executive Director of Marketing for Attorney.org. I am writing you this email to better inform you about our website and in hopes of reaching a mutually beneficial strategic partnership. Attorney.org is one of the top sources of free legal information on the Internet. We provide articles of general and specific information to our visitors regarding common legal issues as well as breaking legal news. In addition to providing information, Attorney.org will be profiling noteworthy attorneys from around the country, attorney generals, district attorneys, and high-ranking local, state, and federal government officials. It is not only a great networking tool for attorneys, but it is also an efficient way to reach out to prospective clients. I believe that your blog can benefit greatly from a new audience of 10,000 unique visitors a month.
We want to list your blog as a source of information on our resources page, and potentially highlight you as a top blog on the Internet in an article on Attorney.org. Our website currently ranks in the top 50 for the anchors “attorney” and “attorneys”, and will only continue to move up. I am hoping that in return, you will be able to include a link to Attorney.org somewhere on your blog (preferably as an addition to your blog roll). This would increase the free flow of information and provide an additional source of information for the readers of both our websites.
There is no doubt in my mind that your blog will be a valuable resource to our Attorney.org users. I believe that we can both benefit from this prospective strategic partnership as the increased traffic will drive new users to both our websites. Should you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact me. I have included the link information as well as my contact information below.
