SEO Scams and Ripoffs

by admin on November 12, 2008

I am a big fan of identifying SEO and internet marketing scams.

It is staggering how many bad SEO companies there are out there. I suppose it isn’t surprising since the demand for SEO services is so high, given the excellent ROI opportunities that are possible when it is done right.

It is true that the techniques can be arcane, the results not instantaneous, and there are difficulties in measuring direct cause and effect. I think there is a market for honest SEO services brokers, to match the needs of clients with quality SEO companies.

In any case, here are a couple of scam alerts I’ve come across recently from some very smart people.

  • Wil Reynolds of ThinkSeer does a nice takedown analysis of a video optimization scam.
  • Eric Ward, a top old school ethical link builder, flags these guys as his “shitty service of the day”.
