The Most Common Internet Marketing Scams
As the Internet is becoming a medium for almost every industry, businesses are looking at options to get potential customers through online. The more there is a requirement for online marketing, the more are the number of scams that come out of nowhere.
Here are some of the most common Internet Marketing Scams that rip off honest people’s money. Read through this article to know how these scam companies make false, unbelievable promises to lure innocent people. Some are even hilarious in their own way.
Promise of Submitting the companies’ website to all the Search Engines
This is intentionally put as the first common Internet Marketing Scam and is considered to be the worst too. People must be aware that the primary search engines are 4 and they handle the majority of all the internet searches. Hence, if there is a promise to submit the companies’ website in anything other than these search engines is nothing but totally useless. And search engines are not as simple as thought and the sites get indexed in the search engines due to various factors.
The scam marketers also promise about re-submitting the site on the search engine on a weekly or monthly basis. This is not possible and there is no use in telling the search engine about your existence when it already knows about it.
Promise of getting you the #1 place in Google
Scam Companies often promise people of getting a top rank in search engines. No genuine consultant will promise such a thing. So always be aware of such guarantees that are unreasonable and unrealistic.
Offering many Backlinks for Attractive Prices
Getting too many backlinks sounds attractive. But is it so? A big no. This will indeed hurt the ranking in the search engines and will certainly be not of any help. It is also not possible to offer this many backlinks and even if it is offered, it tends to be a spammy link. The ranking is certainly not going to improve because of these backlinks. That is for sure.
Promise of Submitting the Website to Thousands of Directories
It sounds amazing, isn’t it? It is true that there are thousands of directories out there where your website can be included. But is going to be of any help to the business? That is where the catch is. If you look online, there are so many free and paid directories that are good and legitimate. But if the scam marketing companies are going to submit your site to unknown directories, then the ranking of your site is going to be hurt. Before making a submission, make sure to have the list of directories on hand.
Reciprocal Links or Link Exchange programs are scams because when companies talk about this option you can be sure that they are lying or are not aware of what they are trying to sell to you. It is not going to work. Are you going to pay for something which is not going to work?
Banner exchange program seems to be a working option but in reality, they pull the visitors away from your website as you are not aware of the site that is linked to yours through the sites. In fact, when there are banner ads everywhere on your site, it looks horrible than attractive.
This is dangerous and illegal. While the other scams are at least not harmful, this scam certainly is. If any marketing company offers this kind of an idea and if you are going to implement it, you might land in prison. From a legal perspective as well as from a business perspective, it is not a good idea. There is no use in sending emails to people whom you do not know about. If you want to do such thing, then it is wise for you to handle it yourself as you know to whom you are sending the ad to.
There are lots of online scams going on in the internet world. Almost everyone must have got an email from a remote part of the world requesting an assistance for a considerable sum. Though this is not a marketing scam, it is a pure example of how a scam looks like. Scams cost people hundreds of thousands of dollars. Read through articles in sites like scamwarning.xyz to gain more knowledge about the latest scams. It is better to recognize them and avoid getting trapped.
