So, I have a web site, and there’s a decent amount about adoption on it. I occasionally (like, 2 or 3 times a year) get requests to add people or services as links from the site. I got one today:

This is a request to include our website link on your website page at

Our details are as follows

Title/Link Text:
Adoption Agency


Adoption Network was founded by adoptive parents and provides adoption services to birthmothers and adoptive couples throughout the United States.

Adoption Network, adoption network law center, adoption birthmother housing

Please let me know if you require any further information.
 ****You might notice that one of the “keywords” is “adoption network law center”. As in, the “agency” that Max and I used and can’t stand. On on our site, there’s a page dedicated to “Our Awful Experience with ANLC”. 

I Googled the name of the guy who sent the email, and he works for an Internet “search engine optimization” company. Obviously, he can’t be bothered to click a link, or else he would have known not to bother me.
