Internet Marketing Review

I was promised I'd be n the first page of Google within 90 days and if I wasnt I wouldn't be charged. One year later I'm on page five and still being charged. I've called and complained they didn't charge me for one month and then I was back to being charged and still on page five. Not to mention I was told after a year the price drops in half (never happened).

Problems with payment

Lying, not doing what promised,

I was told they were google. They told me I would appear on a front page in a matter of weeks. I appear nowhere. I could not cancel within 6 months. A 400 dollar penalty would exist if I did cancel. Basically I have been scammed. I have tried to find anything on google that relates to my business and have not found anything except an error notice when I go to pull up the site I was originally on. I phoned the company and told them they had lied and they just said that they would talk to the salesperson who told me they were google. This is the kind of company that needs to be put out of business.

Lies

These people would not leave me alone, this is the first bitter review ive ever written. Desmond , mike the invisible robot and Cheryl Paige are all liars , and they are horrible liars at that, aren't even a 2/4 for lying. I am probably going to sue them because I have asked them at least 10 times to quit calling me and they will continue to call me from every number they can find to. They call me and they will not update the don't bother list. I have documented theirs calls and names at least six times. I told Desmond I had a file on them and he said it must be a small file and hung up. however many times I asked them not to call me Or take me off the list they'll always always call. I hate them . I know I am repeating myself but they need to be made financially responsible for the business loss they have caused. Ps : they suck Thanks ! Tom - complaining construction guy

Poor customer service

False Representation

Don't use this service. The sales person never mentioned his company name and acted like he was calling from google, therefore I agree to proceed. Suddenly I was contacted by lighthouse. Given I'd already spent $199 I decided to give it a try given I was already in for the initial payment. I provided an existing web site and key words. A few days later a pretty lame site was published with some cut/paste from my existing site and a picture of guy. My wife is a psychologist and the site was targeted for a different market. Upon attempting to cancel the site I was given a hard sell and told I'd agreed to 6 months and owed $400 more dollars. A reasonable company would provide an immediate refund and maintain reputation and customer satisfaction. That was never discussed and I was routed to many additional hard sell representatives.

Great Company

Every comment on this site is a conflict of interest. They are either competitors or individuals that have never work with Local Lighthouse. The company have been around for six years with 12,000 active clients nation wide. It is human to have a few upset clients here and there. This on the other hand is malicious and illegal under defamation laws. If we contacted you and you do not want the service that should not give you the right to call them a scam. That is like saying I hate every other county out there but I have never left my own state. It just does not make since.

Obviously this was written by an employee of the company "if we have contacted you".

My husband was contacted by them and the representative portrayed himself to be from Google and led us to believe they would maintain our webpage and Facebook account which both looked like *** and we had no access to ourselves. After complaining they lowered the monthly payment to 49.95/mo until the contract would be up in 6mos which is still less than the $450 cancellation fee.

The only other option they have is to send it to collections. They are a big scam do your own research if you want a product you should make the initial contact!!!

Robo-Calling and trying to scam unsuspecting people

They are not easy to get to admit it, but the company is Local Lighthouse. They robo-call phone numbers to try and trick people in purchasing their local services. The person I talked to was in Costa Mesa, CA. The trick is that they make it sound like they are part of Google (they aren't). At the end of the conversation when I confronted the sales rep, he told me that they bought my phone number from Google+. When I told him that I was going to post this online, he told me that he was going to post my personal phone number online.

Don't leave reviews on a company whose product you have not even used.

That is untrue. Google has partners if you do not believe me go to Google/partners on Google and you will see that they partner up with local companies.

Google does not sell business information so we could not have purchased something that can not be sold.

The anonymous response to this review is a liar. everything stated in the initial review is true.

I came back here to see if they had people put in false responses. Turns out they do. No big surprise. Also, to reiterate, the person on the phone threatened to post my personal phone number online when I told them what I was going to do.

Stay far away from "businesses" like this.

and if you work there, find another job.

This is not a place to get good experience or longterm employment. This is a get rich quick scam for the owner.

Don't waste your hard earned money

Talked to woman today trying to get me to sign up my practice. She was very rehearsed. I got her off script and she became upset. For young doctors, please do not waste your time and money. If you think this is a good deal and a way to grow your practice, I will do it for half the price. If you are looking to drive more patients to your practice, there are many legitimate avenues that you can take. Don't get desperate and spend your hard earned money on scams like this. Talk to local and State association. They will point you in the right direction.

Local Lighthouse - SCAM. DO NOT DO IT.
Being new in the business world, no schooling on how to operate a business, I made the mistake by giving a Local Lighthouse Rep my time. The woman was very polite and friendly. Mentioning that they only wanted to help me and my business grow. Unfortunately I don't...

I also had BIG PROBLEMS with Local Lighthouse. They stopped my webpage when I cancelled my monthly fee for monthly advertising.

So my webpage which was extremely expensive with them does not exist. I had to spend another $1200 to get it done.

Seems like very high pressure sales tactics

Received a call from Mac who tried very hard to get me to subscribe to their service. I either had subscribe before we got off the phone or never have the chance again and they'd be contacting my competitors. While talking to this guy, I searched the web and found they could very well be a scam outfit. When my cell phone dropped the call, he tried feverously to call me back. I didn't answer the follow up calls, so I guess it's a good thing the call was dropped. Anyone who contacts me looking to get my business and tries top pressure me to make a decision and fork over money, raises a big flag.

SEO fraud local lighthouse

Search Engine Optimization, or SEO, fraud involves a supposed Internet marketing specialist presenting a prospective client with detailed graphs and charts indicating that the client's web site receives some number of "hits" per month. The specialist claims his services will increase web traffic, thus increasing the site's sales revenue. After payment, the scammer does not provide the proposed services.

Local lighthouse Local SEO Listings - complaints

STAY AWAY AT ALL COSTS. These people are the worse. I just spoke with Greg from Local Lighthouse a Local SEO Listings company that has had John spamming me all day with at least 100 phone calls. This is the most annoying thing of all time as they try to deceptively trick you into thinking that they are calling and offering you Google Local Listings and to help fix up your place online. The issue is there is no association of this Tustin California company. They let you know that they are based in orange County california. STAY AWAY THIS IS A HUGE SCAM and they do not do *** for SEO.

Received a call from 510-358-****. It is an automated msg that claims that they are from Google Plus Local SEO office.

The msge stated that my company will be de-listed from Google Plus page and I need to act immediately by speaking to one of their representative & asked to press 1 to connect to Google plus Local SEO office. I did so, and connected to a guy that again claimed that my company will not show up on Google plus SEO pages I asked for the name of his company & he said we are Local Lighthouse SEO & he even gave me his website (www.locallighthouse.com). He kept baffling that how his company is listed on first page of Google & mine is not. He asked me to pay $299 a months to sign up & they will get me to the 1st page of Google.

When I said no, he kept saying that my company will be unlisted from all pages of search in Google.

Knowing a little about SEO business myself, I let him go on & finally I told him, just dial in your number (510-358-****) or your company name in Google & see what Google list as scam & you are number one.

He was very upset & defensive kept beating our company for not being on 1st page of Google.

THEY ARE SCAM. They try to sound like they are calling from Google, but if you drill & ask questions about SEO, eventually they know they are caught red handed. Once they know that, they start threatening you.

Don't fall. Also read the ripoff report about them (http://www.ripoffreport.com/r/Local-Lighthouse/Tustin-California-92780/Local-Lighthouse-GOOGLE-OPTIMIZATION-SCAM-Tustin-California-NOTICE-this-ripoff-has-838108)
