    OMG Craziest Google Local Business Thread

    I'm not even going to quote it because I don't want the guy's name or site here, but OMG.
    Just need to read it for a great Friday laugh.

    Just in a quick nutshell, the guy complains ON THE GOOGLE FORUM that he used blackhat software that guarantees a #1 in Google. He didn't get #1 even though he has 74,000 backlinks. Therefore he blames it on Google and said it's a bug that his site is not ranking #1 and DEMANDS Google fix the bug!

    Oh and this is not some naive business owner. This is a guy that says he's an "SEO expert". He links to his site that was affected by the Google "bug" and this guys actually offers SEO services. Scary!

    Just OMG!

    Uninformed and crappy SEOs like this are what gives the industry a bad name!

    re: OMG Craziest Google Local Business Thread

    I responded with some help, I recommend getting a minimum of 75,000 spam backlinks, I am sure then he will be number one. He only has 74,000.

    Okay, just kidding, I didn't post that. However I feel very blessed to have the resource of this forum.

    re: OMG Craziest Google Local Business Thread

    LOL!

    He posted at the Webmaster forum too. 72 posts blasting him so far.

    Why is my site not in position 1? PO'd seo expert - Google Product Forums (Later note, that thread got deleted after over 100 crazy posts)

    Oh and then in another thread there is a customer of his wondering if he can sue this guy for getting his site de-indexed.

    Can I Sue "XYZ" (The SEO expert in the above threads.) for Getting My Site DeIndexed? - Google Product Forums

    I feel kind of bad for the guy. He is a rude little bugger, but I can't help but sense a lost little puppy who was lead down the wrong path at an early age.

    I didn't see any threats. Must have missed those.

    I was just implying that he is a lost soul.

    It was on the Webmaster thread. He kept threatening her on her personal profile. She posted a couple of his threats. Not killing threats, hacking type threats. Evidently he has a team that does that too.

    SEOul.. LOL! You crack me up!

    re: OMG Craziest Google Local Business Thread

    WOW! Blown away at this human being's thought process and his replies His attitude is disgusting! A direct reflection of his work.

    I will forever be so grateful that I was led to this forum so early in my learning.

    P.S. The "SEOul" and recommending getting 75,000 spam backlinks made me "laugh so hard I almost spit out my coffee"!

    Thanks for creating such a positive atmosphere and place to learn and grow for real SEO's, Linda!

    re: OMG Craziest Google Local Business Thread

    It fanned out. Sock puppets using fake names making other posts. Got much worse including threats to other Google Top Contributors and this nice little comment on my personal G+ page.

    "Linda is a scallywag, who knows nothing about seo. DO NOT LISTEN TO HER JABBER"

    Then it escalated on to gay p*rn hacking of the HVAC customers web site for refusing to pay up.
    I saw it, it was nasty!

    Some other people are reporting him (them) to the State District Attorney and FBI tomorrow.
