    I have a very local niche and have multiple sites in the first two pages of the SERPS, I've noticed a large increase of emails, offer SEO services, through my secondary sites since joining and taking advantage of some 'freebies' with my main sites.

    I'm sure the guys in the BST aren't doing it, but has anyone else noticed this? Are members finding out our niches and then contacting competitors? Maybe it's a coincidence, but the amount and timing makes me think.

    Well just being on BHW there are a few trackers, 1 i see is shareasale which is an internet marketing company, and viglink which is a affiliate marketing service so maybe one of these trackers is using your information to send you targeted emails in SEO and stuff like that.

    What lol... Trackers sending you emails. umm NO.

    @OP: Welcome to ranking on first Google. There are bots that scan the top 100 or 1,000 google serps and many companies particularly in India though I get them from other places as well spam everyone in the top 100 or 1,000 offering their seo services.

    I get tons of these too. Most of them go to junk and the few that get through I just delete.
