company ripping people off should i sue?
i used to work for a company that was an SEO (search engine optimization) the company had all of us telemarketers call random businesses all over the USA telling them if they signed up for our service we would be able to put them in the showcase position on yahoo and google. (((showcase means when you search on yahoo or google and your looking for a business… lets say a pet groomer…you would type in “pet groomer” and the first 3 listings you see are the showcase positions))) now what they really did was barely put them in the yahoo and google database where maybe if you went to page 4 or 5 you would see them….crazy huh? ya well i was wondering how i could get them in trouble to stop them from lying! could i sue them for false advertising? what is your opinion?
You don’t have a legal right to sue. There must be a duty, breach, proximate cause, and damages.
You were an employee. They had a duty to their clients that was breached. Those clients could sue.
My client is not paying me for work done?
I have been doing Search engine optimisation and online marketing for a client. I agreed a 1 month trial contract where the guy paid me half at the start half at the end. I have already got him ranked high in Google page 1 within the 2 weeks i have worked so far + also redesigned the website to get more leads ( prior to this he wasnt getting any through the website)
now he emails me out of the blue saying that I havent done any work and he wants to stop my services. I have been nothing but open and honest with him and regularly updating him with the work I have completed.
He is also using a website design which I mentioned in the contract that if he uses it he will have to pay extra. He hasnt returned a signed contract to me even though I have told him atleast 3 times about it.
Should I seek legal advice for damages and unpaid fees for my services? what should I do? please help
You have left yourself very open to abuse with integrity. You need to have in place a more protective contractual arrangement working on-line.
Have you not thought about getting some Lawyer or Solicitor to advise you with what you can do for incidents such as this in the future.
It looks like he can do whatever he likes without any restrictions or obligation for contractual work done on his behalf. I wouldn’t have thought this behaviour allowable.
Does good Search Engine Optimization require buying products and services?
I just started a blog 2 months ago and haven’t done any SEO because my long term plan is to make money off it and I wanted to get a good amount of content on the site before doing any SEO.
But I can tell there is a strong bias against blogs that haven’t done SEO since MY BLOG DOESN’T SHOW UP IN GOOGLE UNLESS I INCLUDE THE ENTIRE ADDRESS.
For instance.. if my blog is called “Dogsthatdrivecars.com” and I type into Google: “Dogsthatdrivecars” my blog will not show up. But once I add the “.com” it will show up at the top.
What the helI? An exact phrase match should show SOME results for my blog!!!
The answer of your question is lying within your question itself. As you have mentioned that you haven’t done the SEO, and now a days it is almost impossible to rank any website without the help of SEO. Because the competition is really high , moreover it is always increasing. So you have to engage proper SEO technique to rank any keywords.
Is Yahoo! Answers broken or something?
Whenever I ask a question and the question gets published, above my question it has 3 questions from other members. The problem is, this section won’t change, it ALWAYS shows the same questions even though two of them have been deleted and one is in the voting stage. I cleared my cache and the same questions are STILL showing in this spot.
Here is how it looks and the three questions being shown:
Your question is open for business.

Mine is the same. But with different questions. The questions change once in 24 hrs for me and dont show new ones.
I use my phone, do you?
Why do Y/A users in India seem to think this is a free advertising site?
Floods of posts advertising either call girls in Chandigarh or advertising local SEO services.
Yahoo! Answers is a simple question and answer site. People ask questions – seeking information – and other people answer them.
People posting in the SEO (Search Engine Optimization) category should be aware the category is for questions about SEO. It is not to advertise and promote your own SEO service.
Posts advertising call girl or escort services are not appropriate on the Yahoo! Answers site at all.
You’re quite correct, so just report them, they get taken down pretty quickly.
