Hi Guys

I had a call today from web.com - previously Scoot and Touch Local who now also manage listings on The Independent, The Sun and the Daily Mirror.

Apparently we now have to pay to get our URL listed on all of these sites.

Is it worth the £99 set up fee and £24.99/month retainer? They will create listings for you (and do all the verifications) on hundreds of other sites - including Facebook, GMB, Bing - and allow you to manage these from a central dashboard. However, if you stop paying, they will remove access to the dashboard and remove all the URLs on the listings they have created for you.

I have a couple of questions:

1. Has anyone else used this service - is it any good?
2. Isn't it against Google's TOS to pay for backlinks to your website?
3. Has anyone used this service for the set up and then cancelled? Do you retain access to the individual listings? I am told that you do - so you could go back into each one and change the pw so they can't remove the URL. Not sure that saves you any time/money to getting the job done by Bright Local.
4. At the end of the day, is it worth £24.99/month to have links from Scoot, Touch Local, The Independent, The Sun and the Daily Mirror?
