A quick lesson in how not to promote your business online. 

Hiring spammers to do automated link building to your Yelp page ( http://www.yelp.com.au/biz/perth-home-cleaners-perth ) seems like a very very bad idea +Perth Home Cleaners.  

The only people who benefit from spamming are the spammers.

Since the individual involved here have retaliated with comment spam on my behalf, I have a apology message posted to by blog with a link to this thread. Water finds its own level...

Please disregard the embedded link in this thread to QuantumLinx, I am unable to edit it out.

Here a couple examples of comment spam that the friendly folks at Perth Home Cleaners left on my behalf.

_"Hi there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this blog before but after
reading through some of the post I
realized it’s new to me. Anyhow, I’m definitely glad
I found it and I’ll be bookmarking and checking back frequently!"_
and
_"Oh my goodness! Amazing article dude! Thank you so much, However I am
experiencing difficulties with your RSS. I don’t know the reason why I am unable to subscribe to
it. Is there anybody else getting the same RSS issues? Anyone that knows
the solution will you kindly respond? Thanx!!"_

New Canon DSLR camera, 24 fps, 40 megapixels, 220 RAW image buffer - you know you want one despite the camouflage. Think it might hurt sales to sports photographers?

Photographer, UCLA Bruin, Father, Historian, SEO, Enlightened
Introduction
Husband, father of two boys, college sports fan (UCLA), amateur historian and photographer, search marketer, not necessarily in that order. 

Photography:
I was an early convert to digital my first camera being the 2 MP Olympus C2000 with whopping 4 & 8 MB SmartMedia memory cards. The batteries would last no more than an hour or so and less with the LCD in use...oh those were the days! Mostly a Canon convert now so I can easily share lenses with my father and most of my friends. First Canon body was the 20D but now use 1D IV, new 5D III and the much smaller Fuji X100 as it can be with me at all times.

Sentimental favorite lens, the old Canon 28-70mm f/2.8 which I'll hold onto until they have something comparable with IS. Love primes but the only one I own at present is the 28mm 1.8.

Reviews:
I don't review often, but when I do it's usually really good or really bad. My review philosophy is set against expectations so I may provide 5 stars for both a dive burger joint as well as a fine dining establishment if both exceed expectations. Seems silly to me to give 3 stars for an amazing experience just because the place doesn't have cloth napkins.

Want a play structure that you want to play in yourself? Barbara has you covered. Her custom play structures are amazing and sturdy enough to last a lifetime...no joke. They are every bit as nice in person as they are on the website and the purchasing process through installation is a breeze. They have everything from customizable template designs to full custom castles that are only limited by your imagination.

They have so much inventory that I rarely need to look elsewhere, consistently helpful service over more than a dozen visits. Once came in with an issue with a malfunctioning toilet that I couldn't diagnose. Snapped a picture with my phone of the inner tank and from that alone they were able to determine that someone previously had installed an incorrect part. Was out the door with the correct item within minutes with issue resolved.

The Fred Steak from Schaub's is a local institution. It's so go in fact that it surpasses the steaks at most of the local restaurants but you can only buy it here. The recipe is a secret and the copy cats aren't close. The steak is jet black and not very appealing, for me that's half the fun, shocking guests with such an unappetizing piece of meat. Any concerns they might have had disappear the moment they taste it however. Guests from out of town now request the Fred Steak when they visit because it is such a treat.

Don't expect the Four Seasons, accommodations are spartan but the location and views are amazing. This isn't a spot to stay indoors anyway, from bon-fires on the beach in the evening to surfing, kayaking and snorkeling during the day. Add tennis facilities, a 9 hole pitch & putt, a large duck pond on site and several shops and restaurants within walking distance and the place becomes a one stop shop for R&R.

I started with the crab cakes as an appetizer with the Washimi-Hawaiian Kobe style flat iron steak as the entree. Both were great with the entree stealing the show, amazing flavor rivaling anything I've eaten in a restaurant and very near my favorite "Fred Steak" from Schaub's in Palo Alto. I don't often eat dessert but this too was very good. Honestly we underestimated the place due to the proximity to the pool area which gives it a casual atmosphere but the food was anything but.

This is a review of this company's marketing tactics. When someone uses software to link spam other websites, it's not only rude but it reflects poorly on the organization as a whole. I certainly would never knowingly patronize a business that does this and as such am taking the time to notify others who feel the same way. There are repercussions to deploying shady business practices.
