someone sent me this email, he said he wanted to submit articles to sites for the purpose of 'whitehat seo'
i was helping him with his english so the articles would sound more coherent and be useful for whatever site.
so he asks if he can send me a file with his essay for me to edit.
i had a linux box with me that i occasionally reinstall OS on, so i opened it up, intending to analyze from my mac when i got home.
some of the text in the article is a hyperlink, but i am not sure if that is the intent of SEO or a malicious download. it looks like this when i use firebug to 'inspect the element' before downloading:
that is the link in the text, i thought it was weird it had the download tag.
so is this a legitimate thing?
or is this questionable?
that is the hyperlink embedded in the text, the rest looks fairly basic, afaik
he sent me an email with attached file (through gmail, which scans for executables/malware, i think)
then sent me an email with a legitamate link to ezine#rticlesdotcom
standard seo practice, or something else?
