    I get this phone call today from a guy who says to me "It looks like you hacked my site and I figured you were good so I would like to hire you".

    It took me aback a bit because I wasn't expecting a sales call to start that way.

    So I go to his website and sure enough is an article I put on there for my online marketing consulting business that I had blasted through AMR a few weeks ago. Turns out that I found his website using a Wordpress footprint with SB and AMR automatically registered an account and posted the article I was sending out.

    After a little investigation it turns out I'm not the only one though. He's got dozens of articles about everything with the only difference between the others and mine is that I had a physical business vs. a physical product (topics were the standard payday loans, male enhancement, etc.).

    We go through his dashboard to make sure his website isn't auto accepting user articles anymore and it looks like he might start a SEO project with me in February.

    Never happened to me like that in 20 years.

    lol brilliant, I have received traffic and a few leads from curious admins clicking on my ads but nothing like that, atleast he has seen first hand what you can do.

    Good Luck OP :)

    No, you're thinking of Al Gore. He also invented the Internet.
