UPG Marketing is a Scam. Do Not Buy From UPG Marketing
UPG Marketing Scam
Blog Marketing from UPG Marketing isn't worth it.
UPG Marketing is a scam.
I was first contacted by UPG marketing because they wanted to put me on the top of the search engines by finding 'targeted keywords' that you would be found at least in the top 5. They also offered me these services for the 'insanely' low price of 600 bucks. They offered a 105% guarantee that I'd be on the top 5 for the keywords that they 'researched'.
It sounded like a good sales pitch to the uneducated about Internet marketing. Do not buy into these folks, and I'll tell you why.
One of UPG marketing's techniques is to show you that through their efforts they were on the top of the search engines for the keyword 'UPG Marketing.' They also tell you that they are on top of about 33 million competing web pages. However, search engines sort keywords by 'relevancy' and not 'popularity'. If you had a website that was inundated with the keywords 'UPG marketing' then you'd find that a company that is NAMED UPG MARKETING is most relevant! So what?!
To illustrate this point you can type in the name of my website: Delivering Dignity. You'll notice that I am on the top of the search engines. However, I'm not optimizing for that keyword but I'm still able to be at the top. The reason why? Because my frigging website is named 'deliveringdignity'! It's actually not that hard to be relevant for a keyword you're named after. Inside my website I am trying to be on the top of search engines for other keywords and I'm fighting against other websites for those keywords. The reason why? It is because no one types in 'delivering dignity' and is looking for adult diapers. They are looking for the website itself.
Think of it this way. When you optimize for keywords, you want to find out what keywords people type in to either learn, or buy something. Not the name of a company. I promise you, UPG marketing had to do NOTHING to get at the top of the search engines for that keyword.
What they will try and do is tell you that they'll do the research to find keywords to put you at the top of search engines, especially Google. However, you don't have any say. What they will do is write a 'blog' that is optimized for a keyword that you want to point to your website. This is actually a good idea in the long run, plus you can do it for free.
This blog creates what is called a 3 way link. What they do is they post the content either on their website, or an article submission site optimized for your keyword. (They pay people from the Philippines to do this for about 2 bucks.) Once they have that article written, they put it on a blog THEY write (and get all of the revenue for it since they are in control of it) Then, on your blog you'll have links to your regular website. (If you look on any website with 'ads by Google' or 'Google ads' the owner of the website is paid for those clicks you make. If you look around on this page you'll see the same thing. If you click on those ads, I get paid like a nickel. This is in no way a request to click on those ads, but it is to illustrate the point.)
The final product you receive is a poor blog with affiliate links THEY make money off of and they are in the top 5 results in Google for a keyword NO ONE IS SEARCHING FOR! They convince you they've done a good job because they TELL you what to type in to find your blog/website. Remember how I told you to type in 'delivering dignity' to see what came up in the searches? Yeah, I did the same thing. Really, type in any string of words to see what pops up! I promise they're will be results! Being on top of those results doesn't matter because no one is typing in those words!
UPG Marketing is a scam. Do not EVER buy their products. You can do what I told you to do in here and you can be #1 for any keyword you optimize for. The only difference is whether or not people are typing in that keyword or not. Do not get suckered into them. They called me 5 times in the last 2 days to keep selling me. Do not accept this harassment. This is why I started this page to expose UPG Marketing. They harassed me even though I asked them to quit. Really, anyone can start a blog marketing company off of the skills these wack-jobs have.Oh, and it took me 10 minutes to be ranked on the first page of Google.
