My spam filter rarely lets any spam through these days, sometimes for weeks at a time, but yesterday one of those "expiring offers" squeaked through. They call it an annual search submission form and give you the option to pay for 1,2,5 or 10 years (Most recommended).

I've never actually done this, but am thinking about forwarding the message to my client list as an example of a "watch out" or "don't even think about it" message. Of course I'd have to add a "why not" line.

How do you manage this sort of crud with your clients?

1. It's spam. Don't click on any links that are emailed to you from unknown parties. They can result in a malware installation on your computer.
2. Modern search engines discover web pages on their own. There is no need to submit, though you may want to use Sitemap.xml files in some situations.
3. There are only three search engines that matter (soon to be two). You don't need to submit to 10,000 engines.

But do you attempt to pre-warn clients with what you said or "laissez-faire"?

In my Search Marketing 101 deck I have three or four slides to warn people about various search scams. You have to be careful not to create the impression that you are slagging a competitor.
