Warning: Scam Artists

Thought I would warn other business owners in here. There is a group that's been floating around for years under different names (they usually have the term "search" or "keywords" in their name). They try and sell you individual keywords and phrases, promising that only you will get the results from those words when people search on them. Well, we all know that's not possible but then they tell you how it's done. The visitor must be using a special type of browser or plug-in that they provide. I don't have the time to explain the whole thing but it's a huge scam.


Also, beware of scammers that call and say that they work for Google. Ask them, "Do you actually work for Google?" and then they will say they don't. Rarely will you ever have Google call you direct. 


Remember to always trust your instincts!
