I have been contacted by Local Out Rank.Com. I was wondering if anyone else has. And if so, Have you signed up? How has it been working?

It looks like a rip off to me....

They claim to have superior SEO skills and give several examples that at first glance seem to rank very well...

However, what they accomplished is something you could very easily do yourself and something that quite a few members have done themselves. It takes some knowledge, time, and work but you can probably do a much better job than they could.

Their examples are a sleight of hand that appear to be great but when you take a closer look you realize how shallow their shell game really is...

Search engines look to fill a vacuum in their search results...

All of their prizewinning websites are at a specific geographical location most of them very small with no competition for the listing.
for example:

Fitchburg Roofing of Fitchburg Mass a number one listing yet 4 miles away in the larger town of Leominster they are off the radar...

Robertsdale Masonry of Robertsdale, Al a number one listing yet 10 miles away in Daphne they are off the radar, They are also invisible in Mobile the closest city.

Lemongrove Landscaping of Lemongrove, Ca a number one listing yet considering Lemongrove is a small suburb of San Diego when you look for San Diego Landscapers they are once again off the radar.

Cardinal Plumbing this would be just like you perhaps working out of your home and lets say for example your home is in East Woodstock and I offer you a trick SEO Package that give you the number one ranking for plumbers in East Woodstock yet a few miles down the road in Danielson which has a much higher population you are invisible on the web.:laughing:

That would kinda be like taking an easy way out with very limited results for you....:whistling2:

Save your money!
Anybody throwing up a shell game like that to sell their work can't be great...

Haha!

I have been getting a few calls from some outfit for the last few weeks. The last time I spoke with the woman was yesterday and I said I just wasn't interested. She asked, "well then, should I just take you off the list and contact your competitors?" :thumbsup: You bet sister, give them a call. As if they were only offering this great deal to me and no other contractors. :rolleyes:

Pet Peeve - People using customer form on your website to contact you regarding their SEO skills. They fill in the required fields with junk or it is written in bad English. A fool and their money is soon parted.

Thanks Red for the useful info. I get calls often from guys "guaranteeing" that they can optimize search engine, etc. I just tell 'em politely 'no thanks.' These guys are the new yellow page ad salesmen.
