I believe that the message you are answering to is just random
spam of the kind that tends to happen on debian/alioth hosted
mailing lists: it's the price we have to pay for open

Being on Google with a decent ranking *is* important for FreedomBox:
people who are already using Yacy have probably already stumbled
on it, and are probably proficient enough to install its components
by hand on their home servers.
The people who need to know about FreedomBox are those that are
still on Google, and only now realising that there are implications
for their privacy, but they don't know enough to build their own
Of course, there are good methods and bad methods for "being
on Google", and paying a random "SEO expert" is definitely not
among the good ones.
