SEO consultant scams

4 Nov 2009

There are more scammers out there than there are honest practitioners of Findability. Antill put together a nice list of some of the most commonly perpetrated frauds.

Scam warning sign #3: “We will submit your site to 2, see 000 search engines!”

Google, case Yahoo and Bing (let’s leave YouTube for the moment) are enough. Medium-smaller size search engines are usually powered by the big search engines, meaning if you are listed on the big three you will be automatically on the smaller ones.

In fact, the major search engines have been in this business for years, and they’ve gotten pretty good at finding sites themselves.

No need to submit, no need to pay someone to do so.
