Review of www.googlemapsguru.com.au

After paying for the services of Google Maps Guru for over 8 months and seeing no results i've had enough. They forced me into using keywords that I have just discovered have zero searches each month. I know nothing about SEO and thought I was hiring a team of “gurus” to do the work for me. They harassed me constantly and rushed me into signing a contact, the same with keyword selection. I kept arguing that the words their 'experts' suggested where too long and were not what I wanted. But they being the supposed “gurus” convinced me that this was the best way to get the fastest traffic to my site. They said the keywords could be changed later after I had traffic. Surprise surprise now they will not let me change the keywords and I have not had any increase in traffic.

My contact is for over $8000 and they refuse to let me out of it. Wouldn't you think that like any other business GMG would do anything to keep their customers happy and to try to save what is left of their business reputation and let their suffering customers out of their contracts that apparently mean nothing. Please anyone considering using Google Maps Guru do your own research there are hundreds of complaints dating back years, on many other review and report sites that they have simply tried to bury. Please anyone considering using the services of GMG think again and please do your homework, if you research this company you will find a trail of devastation and the same bullying tactics and zero results that have been experienced by hundreds of their customers over the last few years.

I have so far had to pay these scammers over $4000 and have thousands of dollars more to pay. They threaten legal action if you ask to be let out of the contract (which I might add is worded very very carefully)

If Google Maps Guru spent as much time actually doing SEO for customers as they do trying to bury and cover up all of the negative scam / fraud / rip off reviews and reports that are posted about them, the world would be a better place.

These people have scammed many people with their pay on performance seo plan, so be very careful. If they only achieve one page 1, you’re still locked in a contract for 12 months. So if no other words hit page 1, you are still locked in and basically screwed! Beware of Google Maps Guru!!!!!!!!!!

I’m now using a Perth based SEO firm who I’m very happy with. They actually deliver me real results and customers. About time!
