Google Careers Scams

Are these Genuine Google Jobs?

I decided to write this hub because I got fed up of seeing these scam ads misleading people to think they could start Google careers.

The only way you can find out about genuine Google jobs is to visit this section of the Google domain to search for positions open in various countries or join Google Adsense as an affiliate marketer like many of the publishers on the Hubpages writing community.

Google Adsense is free to join, so any scams that mention signing up for Adsense and using their 'Toolkit' to make easy money are piggy backing off the famous Google brand and not telling you that experience and hard work is involved to make a profit from the official program.

Working for Google Adsense

The only people who make large amounts of cash from Adsense like the amounts that are displayed in the Ads are people who have spent years creating hundreds of useful webpages and used SEO knowledge to gain traffic, either this or they have one site which is extremely popular.

Google Ads are then embedded in these pages via a publisher I.D from your official Adsense account, you don't need a unofficial 'start-up' pack just the ability to research SEO skills online and publish a webpage.

If you see any of these Ads with the Google logo ignore it! just because they have the Google logo does not mean that Google promotes this program.

These internet marketers are particularly meticulous and even include other logos of Television channels which may have talked about Adsense but all they want to do is lead you to believe that it is 'Easy' and 'Trustworthy' but it may include in the fine print that not everyone earns high amounts.

By the time you realize that it isn't going to earn you money over night it is too late, you have been charged $50 on your credit card and may even get reoccurring charges.

Google have actually taken action to sue many of these companies, one being a web hosting company called 'Pacific Web Works' based in Utah. Many consumers never receive the 'Toolkit' and the Better Business Bureau have had more than 800 complaints against Pacific Web Works who would not comment on the matter but said they would deal with them.

Jason Morrison a Google Spokesperson says that these websites defraud the public using its famous trademark with people thinking that they are liable for a legitimate business venture.

      Yeah I have seen these scams all over the place they are so common.

      It's a shame really because people are looking for ways to make money and trust big names like Google etc and automatically trust these types of offers, even though it's not really that company at all.
