I hired Elite SEO Marketing to perform â Search Engine Optimizationâ on my web site. They agreed to optimize my website so that when potential customers searched for a window cleaner in the cities that we service my website would be displayed on the second section of the first page which is called the organic placement.

I gave them a check for $2, 000 and agreed to monthly payments on my Amex card for the balance.

They agreed to start work immediately on September 16th and have it operational within 30 days. During the next thirty days I made a number of attempts to get a progress update with no results and finally on October 19th I learned that my sales rep had left the company and nothing had been done on my website. They assigned a new rep to handle my account and he promised to get everything going.

During the next 40 days I repeatedly asked for updates and progress reports and received very little information. Finally on November 26th they said they still had not done anything to my website because they did not have access. This was not true. I proved that I gave them access on Nov 4th and all they would say is Ops.

I had internet web developer look at what they provided and he felt it was little more than a few days of work.

They also promised to provide a 30 Second Web Presenter Service. This service consist of a popup window with a model giving a overview of the company when a prospect first comes to the web site. I selected the model I wanted but nothing has been provided.

I hired them to increase my web traffic but the opposite has happened. the traffic continues to go down because Elite SEO Marketing did not do what they promised.

Elite SEO Marketing is a rip-off and internet scam organization. They have provided no value to my company and I ask that you do not pay them any money.

    I agree with Owner23. Believe me, I am not biased in either direction. I am however, with my partner deeply considering Elite SEO. I am diligent and highly analytical and I have done my research, (the very reason I am on this site), and all that I have found is positive regarding Elite. However, another Canadian firm we looked at is apparently a well designated scam; Annzo. Of course there are stories for, and against. It just seems there are far more against. Its just so hard to tell with SEO. I hope I am not wrong about Elite because it ain't cheap!

    Do not listen to the false story Patrick is telling. Patrick is an opportunist who after we delivered on our job decided to stop payments that he owes us for the work done and decided to benefit from what we did without paying. To this day he still has all of our work on his site (funny that he says the traffic went down but he still keeps the code up) and is just trying to badmouth our company because we are pursuing the money he owes us through the legal channels.

    The client and Elite SEO Marketing went into a contract on 09/15/2009. We guaranteed that we will attain 35 additional first page placements for his website. There was an upfront cost for this project. The client was not able to make the full payment upfront so we made an exception and broke it down into monthly payments. After hundreds of man hours of coding and building backlinks for his website, we were able to attain over 480 additional first page placements for his website - 445 more than we guaranteed (he signed a contract for 35 first page placements). We provided him with a ranking report showing these results on 02/05/2010. After he saw that all this work was done, he pulled a quick move and stopped paying off his balance.

    When he is telling you that we took longer than promised to complete the work, it is absolutely false. He signed the contract on 9/15/2009, but as it is clearly stated in our signed contract in the 3rd paragraph of Terms and Conditions - It will take approximately three (3) - five (5) weeks to develop and complete on-page SEO code (set-up files) once we have received proper access to the client's website (FTP and/or CMS administrative access if needed). He gave us access to his website on 11/04/2009. His on-page code changes were completed and uploaded to his site on 12/04/2009 - well within out timeline of 3 - 5 weeks.

    As far as the webpresenter goes, he was asked numerous times to fill out the form on our website where he chooses the actor, tells us what corner the actor should appear on on his website, and gives us a script that he wants the actor to use. He never completed this form and therefore we can't move forward with the filming.

    One last comment we want to make on his post is, if he says that his traffic continues to go down after what we did for him, why does he still have all of our work uploaded to his site? And if his web developer says that it takes a few days of work to do what we did, why hasn't the web developer re-worked it and uploaded their own code? Because when a website goes from 56 first page placements to 540 first page placements that we got them, you don’t mess with anything and you keep it as is and enjoy the benefits. You can't possibly believe that he was getting more traffic when he had 56 first page placements than when he has 540… What a joke!
