  1. SEOhaus. They’re just like all of the SEO companies out there that charge low rates for businesses. They do spammy work like directory submissions and social bookmarking that can get your site penalized by Google- in addition to not working. They had great customer service though. Nice guys. It’s time for the small business community to understand what SEO actually is and how to ethically increase their rankings for long lasting results. Because of this ignorance, companies like SEOhaus and countless others can get away with charging for snake oil.

  2. Okay the reason I ask is because i worked for a man who owned Barking Frog SEO in attempt to learn a new trade. unfortunately it was exactly how you described spammy work and never got a real opportunity to learn this skill.

  3. Hey Travis,

    Yeah, a vast majority of SEO companies still do spammy techniques.
    We are actually going to be looking for another hire pretty soon here.
    I’ll let you know once we begin our hiring process.
