Beware of SEO Snake-Oil Salesmen

Posted by Stickyweb in Consulting, Rants, SEO

The 'Snake-oil Salesman' is frequently featured in the old westerns - peddling a supposed cure-all with a scripted banter hyping a myriad of benefits - all completely untrue ... Until the townspeople run them out of town!

SEO Snakeoil SalesmanWell beware ...

A new salesman is in town preying on businesses who just want to have their sites appear at the top of Google Searches.

"With this new amazing technique I can guarantee your listing will appear at the top & on maps as well ... look at this lovely site I have already built for you (simply a wordpress template with a few minor changes). We only work with Australian businesses (But our company is registered in New Delhi) & besides ... we already have signed up your competitors -  so don't miss out!!!"

Just like the snake-oil salesman's pitch, there's not a word of truth in the above & it's about time someone started forming a posse to run this thieving lot out of town.

Think about it ...

How many top places do you suppose Google has to sell?
And do you think they outsource the selling to a New Delhi based outfit called "aussieseoexperts.online"?
