We Report. You Decide.

Let me share with you dear reader, what the rinky dink Florida software company called A p l i c o r did to the websites of the business to business lead generation company, Find New Customers.

Apologies to FoxNews, but this title seemed apropos for what this sleazy company did. If you need to do business to business demand generation, would you resort to sleazy tactics?

Note their two sites look identical and are stuffed with keywords for search spiders. Nor is any contact information on it. As a result, they are not designed for human beings. (In fact, keyword stuffing and intentionally duplicate content are classic “black hat” search marketing tactics.)

What do you think about what they did – taking our domains and using them for this black hat seo crap? I’m ashamed and embarrassed by what they did.

Let’s compare these sites so you can reach your own conclusion. What do you think? Please share your comments and re-Tweet too.

What do you think? We’ve love to hear if anything like this has happened to you and how you dealt with it. I also hope all my readers and friends boycott A p l i c o r too. If you are looking for C R M software, avoid them like the plague. There’s plenty of good C R M software out there without buying from these sleazy guys.

  1. i think what they did was low, low, low. Any one that has had any interaction with or your firm is solidly in your court on this one. Good luck and you have many supporters who are here to help in anyway they can.
