Google, is that you?
Many of my clients get calls from “Google”. If you could see me now, you’d see my use of air quotes.
“Google” tells them lots of interesting things:
- Their business is going to get delisted
- Their business listing is just plain wrong
- They need to submit their business listing with the search engines
All scamming nonsense and these calls are not from Google.
Google doesn’t care about your listing…in terms of if it’s right or ranked highly. That’s up to you to do things correctly…or hire ChatWorthy of course to help you.
The people on the other end of the phone are in fact scammers who will charge you $200+ to “list” your company with Google or somehow flip a switch to get you a higher ranking within the Google Search algorithms.
Don’t fall for it.
If you don’t have a listing anywhere within Google or haven’t claimed the one they have auto-generated for you…never let them walk you through the process of verification. They will take your business listing to ensure you do business with them – all while providing absolutely no services.
If you have questions about how Google works and how to improve your business listing, just give us a call or send us a message, we’d be happy to help.
