Years back before I marketed myself as a SEO, Search Engine Optimization was just a hobby for me and a tool to deliver a message to a large audience.
For an example: Years back I had a problem with a car dealership. I was mislead and lied to. The average consumer would have either let it go or called someone like Tom Martino. The companies management wasn’t going to do anything and I was too shy to jump onto the Tom Martino show so I spread the world with the way I knew best – I made it so anytime anyone Google’d the company name my complaint showed up. Now my complaint didn’t just show up it was smack dab underneath their company website so anytime anyone did research on this company they were introduced to how the company treated me.
Guess what – as soon as the company caught on I got a call with an apology and my issue was fixed in exchange for me taking the post down, so I did.
The same went for people, places, things and businesses. Anytime I had a problem with someone or something I made it apparent that I was not a happy camper and made sure that others we’re aware of what happened to me so it didn’t happen to them – the idea caught on quick.
The moral of this story is that’s its not a good idea to P-Off a SEO. I had a recent encounter with a specific person who really treats others bad. They have done wrong by me and they have done things to the ones they supposedly love that are wrong. What will I do to cope with what this person is doing to others? I am tempted to blast their name across the internet. I will make it obvious to their current employer, their future employer, their family, their friends and their girlfriend who they really are. The gloves are off and the skeletons are about to come out of the closet.
Do I enjoy blasting people? Nope but I have a very thin filter and sometimes things need to be said to help others avoid the same mistakes.
