Something has come to our attention that we feel everyone should know. All businesses who want to market themselves online are very interested in getting their website listed on Google. This is important to do, however there are legal and illegal ways of doing so. When you submit your website to Google, there is no real telling how fast it will end up on the first page of Google. If you input all the proper SEO work, keyword research and meta tags, you have all the proper pieces of the puzzle to get you there. However, there are companies out there promising you that you will get to the first page of Google easily. They are listing businesses like yours under false pretenses just to get them found for the particular city they want to cater to, etc. When Google realizes this is happening, they will remove all your listings because it is against the TOS (Terms of Service). The only legal way to get yourself listed is to input all the proper SEO work like we mentioned earlier and/or to buy pay per click advertising spots.
If you get a call from one of these companies claiming to do this for you, beware. Proceed with caution!
