I have been contact by a company, who have said "Due to the fact that our service guarantees the number one position on all
major search engines we are privy to certain information and certain policy
changes within the search engine positioning structure so that every time
the search engines add to there criteria of how they rank sites we can keep
existing clients at the number one position and also place our new clients
there."
"We hold the intellectual rights to the programme so that we are the only
company that can do this."

Sounds like rubbish to me can anyone confirm this?

you might wish to edit out the company name specifics or I suspect it will be done for you :) Not really allowed./

>>Sounds like rubbish to me can anyone confirm this?

I might be tempted to use stronger words :)

Chances are they will pick terms that cost pence and can put you "to the top" all year. Trouble is no bugger ever searches for those terms :) Get the picture

Never trust anyone that says they can guarantee a number one position on all search engines. Sounds very fishy to me.

I got a call (I think) from the same company yesterday. Quick check told me they were link farmers and doorway makers.

The sales guy actually pretended to be his assistant to make himself look more important. (left a VM and then called back) Problem was his voice was pretty distinct so he looked even more like an idiot.

Tried to claim he didn't know what a link farm was, I told him that was exactly why I didn't want to talk to him and hung up.

Anyone who claims to have technology to get you to #1 but won't tell you how they get you to #1 should be avoided like the plauge.

I get similar sounding unsolicited mail all the time stating things like: "We've noticed that you're not at the top of SE rankings for your industry terms..."

I don't quite know how to break it to them that, actually, I am... >;->

Again, it is a scam, and every other one out there trying to sell something similar. Had experience with these type people one year ago. One deal going around is that you can buy the right to a keyword people will supposedly enter in the address bar for "widgets x" and your site appears. Only problem is in 2 areas:

How many people type search terms into their address bar?

Even if they do, it only works if the searcher has enabled a plant on their computer to enable it to work.

Not many do that, and even worse, a lot of folks these days shop from work, and most businesses would never enable such a plant.

I honestly think these people would have disappeared like so much venture capital and acceptable industry terms like "burn rate".
