SEO Search Scam – BannerTargeting.com

Attention business owners and anyone that’s seeking to rank on the first page of Google, Yahoo, or any other search engine!

If it SOUNDS too good to be true – it is. If you pay companies like the one I’m about to show you, before doing any research, you probably shouldn’t be handling the marketing budget for your account.

On to the scammers….today’s search engine scam company is http://www.bannertargeting.com.

Very similar to a scam SEO company I wrote a post about last year, could even be the SAME company for all I know.

Here’s what they do:

It’s my suspicion that they target new domain purchases hoping to catch the “brand new to the internet” client.

To begin with, you’ll probably get an unsolicited email that says something like –

Hello,

Let us introduce you to our unique technology, which can place BILLBOARD OF YOUR WEBSITE ON TOP OF ALL MAJOR SEARCH ENGINES (Google, Yahoo, Microsoft Live Search), framing above all your competitors!

Watch our technology introduction here <http://www.bannertargeting.com/demo.html>

To see how our technology works, go to our website and see our ONLINE DEMO in 3 easy steps:

1. Go to bannertargeting.com/onlinedemo.html (don’t waste your time.)

2. Enter your URL <http://yourdomain.com> where indicated: <http://www…>

3. Enter your keyword – and click VIEW ONLINE DEMO! (to see how we try and fool you)

You also can Request Quote for list of desired keywords here <http://www.bannertargeting.com/getaquote.html> or by phone (800) 691-1328 (give them a call!) and our SEO specialists will give you estimate traffic and cost of chosen keywords. (I wonder how much they’d charge me for the keywords I listed. Hope it’s not more than $500,000.00)

With our technology you get:

– Top Placement for 1 year (on our bogus framed page)
– Exclusive Keyword registration
– No Pay Per Click fees (we only charge a one time ridiculous fee)
– Highest possible visibility (on our bogus framed page)
– Keyword-Targeted Visitors to your website (Reach consumers the exact time they search your keywords-*giggle snicker*)
-suckered.

Below are some quick screenshots I grabbed, in case you’re not sure if the “legit” company you’re talking to is the same one I’m talking about.

This should raise a red flag. You can't REALLY think this will work, can you?

If only it were true. No one will ever, ever see this page. Except maybe for the sucker that buys into this scam.

Hopefully, you did not dump a penny, much less a million dollars on this crap. If you did, however, give me a call – for $300,000 I’ll make sure your story gets to the top of google. That’s a 30% discount – and the offer’s ONLY good til Dec. 2009, so ACT NOW!

    Good looking out for the new guy David. A site and email like that would be very much appealing but to the seasoned internet guru we know. I cant believe sites like this can get away with that.

    Yeah, and he goes through and clicks on the sponsored adwords with google and yahoo, costing customers money. He doesn’t even care what product or service you sell, he’ll click on anyones add that has an adwords account and then find you email address to sen you spam.

    I’d personally like to ring the fukers neck.
