When Outrank is recruiting you, you are told that they will not bill you until they get you listed on the "big' 3 search engines: Google, Bing, and Yahoo. Then you find out that they are actually billing you since day one! They also don't tell you that you will have to do 3 different searches to show up on each of the 3 search engines. No one keyword can be used to achieve first page status on all 3 search engines. There is no update as to what your ranking is, no follow up, nothing...until you receive your CC statement! And the website, an 8th grader could do a better job with webpage design!

    To David Lyon of Outrank, Looky here, buddy, if you knew anything about SEM you would know that landing pages are OUT! Why would you use a another domain instead of the customer's REAL domain? That crock of ### you spewed above saying: "We use keywords and combinations to tailor your website; there is not one specific keyword that will magically work across the board, which is why we create a custom website to get you ranking. In addition, proper SEO techniques take some time to go into effect as the search engines manuever in certain cycles." is a huge pile of rotting stinking ###. Wrong on so many levels. It just shows how little you know about SEO and SEM. You are an AMATEUR that gives reputable SEO businesses a bad rep. You should be horsewhipped, tarred, feathered and ridden out of town on a rail. Get out of this business. You have NO calling for it. You call those ### pages you make a "custom website?" OH MY GOSH!!! What a LIAR!!! Your sites are juvenile at best and not even that good. Look at the complaints against you. I personally will be spreading the word about your business. Blogs, here I come! I can post on my blog and it will be indexed within 24 hours. Hell Yeah, I'm THAT good!!!

    Outrank is really a terrible company. I spent over 5000 dollars with them and they did not deliver on what they promised as far as page ranking goes. I found a smaller company who specialized in the same thing and the amount of work they did to accomplish what outrank promised was amazing. Outrank is a freaking joke. Not to mention when it came time to cancel my account the customer service rep was a total a-hole and called me an idiot for canceling. Really a terrible company say away.

    Outrank (profitfuel) is now stealing your Google identity by superimposing their own phone number for your site and then asking for your PIN provided by Google Places postcard. Your phone and mailing address are a business' only verifiable methods of confirmation and Outrank finally figured out how to loop around it. Outrank is a scam that preys on small businesses as large businesses have web teams, IT teams and/or legal teams that can see through the ###

    Dear Moonraker Granite,
    Thank you for your comments. I apologize for the issues you have experienced. Our guarantee is to get you ranking and we maintain our promise. The 3 major search engines all work differently. We use keywords and combinations to tailor your website; there is not one specific keyword that will magically work across the board, which is why we create a custom website to get you ranking. In addition, proper SEO techniques take some time to go into effect as the search engines manuever in certain cycles. At any time, you can check your ranking online using the search engines you mention or if you need assistance, you can call your designated representative to check on your ranking. Because there are many factors feeding into the way the search engines work, we will thoroughly analyze your rankings to give you accurate data. If you would like to talk directly with us, please contact David Lyon at 877.332.4321 ext. 3040. or [email protected] Thank you.
