I hate to call people out because, well, it’s happened to a lot of us in this gig…but come on. As you may recall I ripped Vocus for their outreach efforts around their Golden Rules for Blogger Relations.
Well, let’s add to their web marketing blunders: I got spammed from the now infamous Tami Queen to my work email address because I downloaded their Golden Rules for Blogger Relations. How do I know this is spam? Because the link at the bottom to be removed DOESN’T WORK. In fact, there is NO hyperlink – the words are black with no HTML in sight.

Want to avoid Vocus spam? Do a search for “vocus blogger rules relations” and it comes up, viewable as a PDF or translated into HTML — so registration and subsequent spam isn’t necessary.
So for those keeping score at home, along with blogger relations and email marketing rules they need a quick tutorial on setting up a robots.txt file as well.
