SEO is a pretty broad term and many honest companies often get lumped in with the bad ones. Linda Buquet with Catalyste Marketing recently got a phone call from a company that claimed to be Google. Comit Developers makes it a point to constantly remind our clients and our followers to be educated and be aware of things like this. These kinds of scams occur all the time, unfortunately, and it pays to be educated.
Here are some hard-and-fast rules about Google:
- Google does not ask for money
- Google will never threaten to take your listing down if you don’t give them money.
Be safe out there and make sure you think ahead.
