    Does this sound as "dumb" as I think?


    Clicked an advert here to see what they're all about...went to the site, clicked on Testimonials....and found this sentence leading off the first of glowing paragraphs....

    "My Colleagues and I have evaluated numerous search engine marketing companies. I saw without trepidation that XXXXXXXXXX is a "Best in Class" company. I challenged them to produce results with some difficult and obscure keyword terms."

    Is it me? Or is this guy AND his BIG Fortune 10 firm that dumb in that you can get some pretty good serps for ANY 'difficult/obscure' keywords/phrases...

    I mean come on, really?

    PS the name was changed to XXXXXX to protect the dumb, eh!

    • sensei agrees : The "obscure" part is funny for me, sounds amateurish
    • distinctseo agrees : U should change the title to insert the guilty party. no point protecting the dumb.

    Not to hijack but - One of my clients forwarded an email to me the other day from an SEO company wanting me to defend the following comment:

    "We see your Company does not rank in the top 10 for the keywords air conditioner, heater or furnace. We're here to help. Our clients rank in #1-3 positions for their keywords. Just search "trial lawyer Forsythe" or "divorce lawyer Lennox" and you will see proof of our abilities."

    My client did not check to see that Fosythe and Lennox are in the street address for these two law firms. I guess the SEO Co hopes no one will look behind the curtain.
    Frankly, I wonder who Frank is and why he has his own adverb.

    You know what they say:

    There's a sucker born every minute and a fool and his money are easily parted.

    It sounds like the company in question has figured out a way to take advantage of that.
