Pretty scary thing to hear right?

Well let me tell you about a little company called Internet Advancement. I just got a call from this company. They called and asked if I was the owner of the website. Then informed me that my coding and meta tags are done improperly and this is hurting my search engine rankings.

*ding ding ding* Idiot Alert

This company has been around for years. Ever heard of them? If you did...it was not good.


Do not fall for this scam.

This company is a joke. They use scare tactics to make money of people who do not know better.

Here is an article that will help you to see how they were told to refund clients by the Attorney General Christine Gregoire:

Here is a recent customer http://badbusinessbureau.com/reports/ripoff189936.htm


You can find more if you need them.

The point is...do not let this happen to you!

If you have friends who own Yahoo stores tell them about the problem. Grab the link for this article and send it out.
