I just signed up with webmaster today and was a little upset to see all the negative things said about Yellowbook and Google's partnership. Especially from many uneducated people.
To answer all of the questions as to whether or not this was even from google...Yes it was! I am an employee of Yellowbook, and I'm probably going to get my head bit off for even saying so! If your not sure what a google adwords certified company is, you probably don't even have a right commenting on this discussion. Not only is Yellowbook a Google Certified Company, but we are the ONLY company to receive an award from Google based off of our SEO and SEM practices, and we did this 2 years in a row! I also believe we are right on track to receive the next award! Something I am very proud to say we as a company have accomplished.
Now if someone could please explain to me why Google cannot solicite to customers they have lost in an effort to gain their business back!? From a business aspect, if you were going to have someone go out and solicite to an unsatisfied customer (which they were if they left) wouldn't you send out your best salesperson!? To google, that is what we are! We have the most and the best and we run their campaigns the right way. For every honest SEO and SEM business there are 10 times that many dishonest SEO/ SEM business out there! Should it be Google's job to filter the good from the bad?
You people are giving Google far too much credit, they are a business that strives to be number 1 and they get insulted for doing so! Obviously they know what they are doing condidering the unmatched internet presence that no one has yet been able to touch.
