Seo Gears / Seo fraud

1 Boca Raton, FL, United States

We were recommended to seo gears by homestead.com (A website builder) in august 2013. We hired seo gears to handle both our seo content marketing campaign as well as our ppc campaign. Our average monthly spend with seo gears has been about $5000. 00. Seo gears created many backlinks to our website, however we recently discovered that nearly 50% of the backlinks developed by them are bad links, which were not created using google's recommended white hat practices.

We are jewelry company. All of our products are jewelry. For example. One of our product categories is rhinestone sliders. We have discovered that seo gears has created bad links to our website by linking us to automobile sliders, which obviously have nothing to do with jewelry sliders. There are so many low and bad quality links to our website, all of which were created by seo gears, that google severely penalized our website with their latest release of penguin. We contacted our rep (Ryan whitten) at seo gears and alerted him to the fact they created all these bad links and asked that they remove and / or disavow all of them. His answer was no. They would not remove the bad links. Furthermore, we asked them to give us all data collected on our ppc campaign during the past year and surprisingly seo gears again refused to give us the data for which we paid. This company is a fraud. They have no idea of how to implement a quality seo campaign. They are also a complete rip - off. They take your money, produce a half - assed work product, and then effectively steal your money by refusing to give you the data that you already paid for.

Seo gears have put us in the position of having to sue them for the information. Unfortunately, even if they are compelled to give us the data, it will probably be too late for it to be of any use to us. Regardless of the outcome, thieves need to be prosecuted, and we will pursue a legal remedy in court. Beware: seo gears is no different than a thief who robs you in the street. The company has no integrity and is run by crooks. Stay away!
