Google Calling!? Not Really! Bewary of these Marketing Tactics

Google Calling!? Not Really! Bewary of these Marketing Tactics

It's almost laughable when I receive a call from a person claiming to be from Google business listing verification. The person usually with a strong Indian or Pakistani accent will attempt to verify my address, then towards the end comes the SEO sales pitch. The only thing they are doing is verifying your business information for future telemarketing lists.

"I am calling to verify your business listing!" The salesman said calling from (458)201-XXXX

Be wary folks of any non-automated call from "Google". Anybody else is most likely to be a sale agent from India or Pakistan sales company. We even got an adwords rep calling trying to get us to increase our adword budget in exchange for "Complimentary" advice on how to improve our campaign. After a little research, come to find out that in fact they are 3rd party companies working for Google. The problem I have here is that they make it sound like they are in fact from Google, when they are in fact from companies like Revenew.

Adword Account Managers, Increasing Budgets is Their Job!

Be wary of the third party adwords agen that cares nothing of your organic ranking and only want to increase your daily budget for their bottom line. No organic strategy, No real strategy but to increase your budget!

Agents recommendations are always, "Need to Increase your Budget!"

Of course they would help you optimize your campaign (at a cost guises as a complimentary feature) , but how much do they care about your organic result. Not at all. They are paid by what they bring in through adwords. Organic ranking is a conflict to their bottom line. So if you are looking to increase your website {tip Search Engin Results Page}SERPS{/tip} ranking then avoid these guys and hire a reputable company with a history of doing both optimization PPC campaigns.

Please any feedback on your experiences with ranking and adword agent and telemarketers please post your comments here, don't forget to add your links!
