Beware of SEO Snake-Oil Salesmen

Posted by Stickyweb in Consulting, Rants, SEO | 0 comments

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.

Are you a .CLUB member?

Join the .CLUB of your passion

Of all of the new domain names (Generic Top Level Domain or gTLD for short) being released I think that .club will generate the most interest due to the huge range of clubs around (or common interest groups)  – sporting, creative, support … the list is endless.

  • ballaratfootball.club
  • ballaratknitting.club
  • wendoureemusic.club
  • buninyongheritage.club
  • ballaratcamera.club
  • And so on …

Of course the benefits of having a relevant domain name are obvious – Ballarat Archery Club would surely rate highly in search results if their web-page is hosted at www.ballaratarchery.club.

BUT BE QUICK … even if you don’t currently have a website it would be worth registering the name NOW. There are many individuals ( commonly known as cyber-squatters ) trying to make a quick $$$ by registering a desirable name & selling at a grossly inflated price.
