You Cannot Buy My Traffic…

    August 9, 2005

An email excahnge that I had this week with a dumb spammer (whose company name I have removed) …

Hi ,

I want to buy your traffic.

Please get back to me ASAP.

My response:


There’s so much traffic in the Bay Area that I’d love to get
rid of. My commute would be so much faster.

Please tell me how we can get started on this.



His response:

Hi Jeremy,

Well, either the street traffic will get lighter, or we’ll
make you enough money to buy a Hummer and you can just mow
everybody down:)

Let me know, when you have a chance, a bit more about your site.

Do you have a network? Do you buy traffic? Where does most
of your traffic come from? About how much do you see in a month?

Looking forward to hearing from you.
