I do a search on the company name which is also the domain name. I get about a dozen pages in the return that have a link to my site on them intermixed with various odd-ball returns. Then finally, all the way down at return #41 is my actual site. I'm inclined to believe they have buried me for one reason or another (probably submission freq.). Is that safe to assume since the site rates #1 in almost every other SE?
If I have been buried, would paying to get listed help anything?
