Default What Are Google Placement Services

I recd a phone call from a company. They do Google placement services.
They said they have a particular keyword and they will rank me in one hour in sponsored area of Google and affiliated sites.

They will charge flat fee per month irrespective of hits. All hits will be genuine from Google search phrases. No CPC.

Is it a scam or these kind of service exist?
If it is genuine that what things should be kept in mind before signup?

If it sounds to get to be true, it most likely is. I've never heard of anything like it before. I also do not think that one keyword is going to make your website go to the top of Google, or anywhere near it for that matter, unless it was there before then.

If you do decide to do it, say you want results before you pay them.

If you decide to give them your credit card number before you receive anything at all from them, be sure you look online at your statements daily, if not hourly, and be prepared to cancel it.

Default Google Placement Services Scam

They take one keyword and put a very high bid on that keyword.. they create an adwords campaign for it and your ad is in number one spot.

That's the hook.

Then you sign up for a monthly budget and they manage the campaign for you. that monthly budget they will take a margin out and schedule your ad to run for in a position if that's your goal or they will put a small bid amount on it that will earn you second, third or worse page placement.

They make claims like we can do this because we have preferred pricing ..blah blah blah. its a scam your success on adwords has to do with one thing, quality and nothing about what these people do has anything to do with quality.

All in all they dont care about the sales that you make. They dont care about the creative. They dont care about the success of the campaign. All they want is your monthly budget on the books for 2-3 months while you are throwing your money away.
