We Got Spammed = Please be Patient
Funny thing happened to us a couple of weeks ago as I was watching our Website Traffic tick higher and higher; by the second; by the minute; by the days…
We got Spammed!
This might not seem like a big deal at first, but after 5,000 hits in less than 48 hours and 4,000 requests for Free HydroRush Samples; I started to become annoyed by our uninvited “House Guests”.
Normally we’d see this as an opportunity and it was in a few cases until I realized that there were quite a few rude and “Entitled” folks out there who were taking up our bandwidth that prevented us from paying attention to “You” our valued Gardeners out there.
So as you can see, we’ve suspended our HydroRush Sample Program until we can design a Request Form that will determine who’s real and who’s not.
Here’s a partial list of 135 Sites that were “Link Farming” (spamdexing) us.
We’re working with Boris our Programmer who will get us back on track with a more robust HydroRush Sample Request Form = sorry but we’ll have to do it this way from now on.
Our simple life just got a little bit more complicated.
