Got a sales call today from uswebsitebuilder.com, also doing business as fruitengine.com, saying they could guarantee top placement on Google search results. The girl on the phone said they were guaranteeing the number #1 spot for 20 keywords so they had my interest, and my grilling machine was turned on. After she couldn’t answer any more of my questions the poor gal turned me over to her manager who said the guarantee was for page 1, not #1. So I grilled him about just what that meant and asked if those were keywords people actually used such as “painter” or “painting contractor”. Of course he couldn’t guarantee such “vague” terms so I asked what kind of search terms are included in that guarantee and he said he would do the research and come up with a list and I would get to approve the terms or disprove them. After I pay him to get started.
In other words, he would draw me up a list of search terms no one is using which would be real easy to rank for and he would charge me for 4 months of SEO services before the guarantee would take effect. At the end of the 5th month I would not be ranked for terms people were actually using. He would already have 4 month’s worth of fees he would be spending on who knows what. Needless to say this scammer didn’t get the sale.
At Kirbyworks, our guarantee is for the most searched for terms that will actually get you paying customers who are looking for what you have to offer, and our “seasoning period” is only for one or two months, depending on the plan, not 4. If we can’t get you to at least page 1 for half of those high-volume terms we are not going to charge you for that month after the first (or second) month of off-site SEO.
