This company wooed me also, and I fell for it. Paid a "special" rate of $750, then revc'd metagtags that were not much different from I had already written. Furthermore, they objected to fact that I insisted on continuing to include my CSS ref. and title tag within HEAD tags, explaining that I had "altered" the tags they gave me. It was never explained to me why having these elements would mess up their "sophisticated" search engine technology!

I too have have asked for a refund and recv'f the standard "I nullified the contract" because of the inlcusion of CSS ref and the title tag. They have NEVER answered why these inclusions are a problem. What BS! I happen to know that they have refunded one customer who had similar problems after he had contacted the BBB in Belluve.

Seems to me that a lawsuit is looming.

#2 Author of original report

WA state Atty. General's office has contacted me

AUTHOR: Dida - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Saturday, May 15, 2004

An investigation of IA is underway by the Consumer Protection dept. of Washington State's Attorney General Office. I was contacted directly by the investigator. I sent her a link to the substantial number of complaints listed here, and filled her in some more on my issues (explaining CSS, for example). IA owes me $1000 at this time. Still no idea if I'll get a refund.

Having just reviewed a book on SEO, I am even further convinced that their "spoofing" tactics are blarney. I'm happy to see some momentum gaining against this company.

Good luck to all of us who have been ripped off by IA.
