    Weird question for a SEO forum but seen weirder on here.

    Well my pal came round today for a chat he was talking to me about being followed and someone outside his house, I was not really listening to him until he said they were outside, so he got the guts to go out and ask what they wanted. they said they were not following him and called him paranoid, just five minutes ago I popped in to his to drop something off and again they were round the corner ( I did not tell him as it would have freaked him out).

    Anyone had this before, I dont think he has been up to anything underhanded as hes not like that.

    Call the police and report a stalker.

    Report it to the police as suspicious behaviour. They may or may not send around a cruiser to check it out, but it means that it's on record if there's trouble further down the line. Try to get a detailed description of the perp, clothes, facial features, height and weight etc. and write it down. Keep a log of times you see the guy again.

    It might not be that the guy is following your friend specifically - it could be an opportunistic mugger, someone casing out houses to burgle etc.

    If problem persists, get together a posse and beat his head into a bloody mess.

    Thats what I thought, but he asked them and I would have thought they would say who they are as far as they know he could have been a crazy, apart from that hes never had a speeding ticket never mind anything serious.

    Your friend may be completely legal, but if he is hanging around with people who are into illegal stuff, he could get under surveillance for a while ;)

    He's being following by google's agents. They're keeping a close watch on him to check if he does any blackhat seo...

    If he was being followed by anyone law related he wouldn't know a thing about it.
    Why doesn't he follow the guy around for a while himself to see who he is following.
    Blatantly take photos of him, stand right next to him and go everywhere he goes
    while writing his movement down in a little book.

    I best its nothing - you're probably overreacting but still keep an eye out and if you see them again call the local law enforcement agency

    I strongly suggest against this against this unless your name is oxonbeef for reasons that should be obvious!! Use commonsense.

    That was also my first thought, though it would do no harm to call the police amyway!

    Too funny.

    If I was your friend, the next time I see him I'd walk purposely towards him with a baseball bat in hand.
