"Top" SEO Firms Paying For Falsified Ratings

As all of us internet marketers know, you can always buy your way to the top rather than working for it. If one were to search for for "search engine marketing" you would likely see news on "top seo companies". The problem with this is that many companies have been buying up press releases and blasting them across the internet claiming fake awards.

This makes one wonder a bit when you consider how exactly does a person go about making such a decision as to who's search engine marketing company is really the best. If you are to browse around the internet and start digging a little bit deeper you will soon find that companies are paying 3,000 - 6,000 dollars or more to be ranked in the top. Despite these fake awards many people are still heavily relying on low-life companies who have bought their rank instead of earning it.

Another problem is that there are currently no regulations or prevention methods of stopping this crafty form of advertising.

Who is releasing these fake awards?

- Gold Line

- topseos.com

- promotionworld.com

"But Gary, how do I know who's real and who's not?"

- Check to see if their domains are black listed

- search for their company name and see if there are any reviews that show up

- Ask your friends for recommendations

- Give them a call, tell them what you want, get a quote, and compare prices.

- Look at their SEO methodoligy? Do they employ "black hat" techniques. If so steer CLEAR!!!

1) Include desired keyword(s) in your domain name *
