Yes, they can choose not to leave their email address, but they clicked your ad to find information - which isn't on the page they clicked through to and which you led them to believe would. Your one page site is doing a disservice to the searcher and making Google look bad. The only way to do business on the net and with Google, is to be aboveboard and use no clever tricks.

Going slightly off topic but along the same lines, I am not nor ever been on facebook, however I have been asked by someone to be one of their contacts/friends etc. Then the post from facebook continues giving out a list of names who are on facebook and in my contacts list.......Harvesting by a marketer???
We also seem to be asked to be friends on facebook, none of which offers we've ever taken up. Each has been someone we know, but we don't want to join in. Some of these have arrived more than once over a period of time.
I know a lot of people use facebook, for many different reasons. Our own youngsters use it a lot and find it useful and great fun, but I just don't want to know. I don't know if they are used for spamming Russethouse, I just don't want to be part of it or to risk it!
