Local Lighthouse - Review in SEO and Reputation Management category

Called me over and over. Said they were google, talked me into new web site, it was written by a 2 year old that can not speak proper English. I rewrote the whole thing. Could get changes done. I canceled account. They kept taking money I canceled 4 more times. I had to cancel my cc. Then they changed my business number to the wrong number and have been advertising the wrong number for 1.5 years. I can't get them to take it down.

I happen to know for a fact the servers were not Russian. They use Amazon servers (AWS) using their US West availability zone, which is in Oregon actually.

I know this because I worked there and personally set up and maintained those servers. I don't normally respond to stuff, but you are an *** if you think they are from Russia.

I thought they were a division of Google so I never questioned them. I spent $750.00 on a *** website they designed. But because I trusted Google, I let it go and waited a couple of months to see how muxh my business...

Nope I was contacted by Lighthouse and was told they would not comply. They do not have an email or anything in writing to deduct $100.00 mo charge, when I was told it would be $40.00 a mo after the Web page was developed.

They turned it on me and asked me If I had proof!

Bad bad bad

Dont do it -- Very disappointing! I was promised things that were not delivered and still had to pay = for no service This company is the biggest scam and the service and sales reps mislead you. They convince you that they are giving you this free website and all it they give you is a landing site that will redirect people to your existing site. Sales rep (Chris Grieder) specifically told me that they make me a complete new website for my business and would no longer need my old site. This was completely false and despite other reps saying that he should not have told me that, there was nothing they could do to let me out of my contract. Worst customer service and business relationship I have encountered in my life. Do not sign anything with this company and if they call you simply hang up.

Promised first page placement with no results

A very aggressive sales person called offering things such as first page placement and guaranteed results. Not knowing at the time that they had no control of placement I chose to use them as the salesman was very good at selling his lies. After several months of no results and many funds paid to them I tried to cancel and they refused to acknowledge that they had done nothing for me. Their answer was to drop my monthly payment and since then nothing else has become of it so I stopped payments to them.

I hired Local Lighthouse to do an SEO Campaign for my website. Instead they designed 3 pages and linked them to my website. This is Not what i asked for!They were terrible about returning emails and phone calls. Then after all the conversation i would get nothing. They made it impossible to cancel. Once, I did cancel contract and they kept charging my card anyway. I canceled my card to stop them. I did get them to refund 2 of the extra charges. it took hours and a dozen phone calls. Then they deleted all the links to my website (there work and my web designers work) and all the info i had paid them for was gone. Right or wrong! Now that is customer service!!

They do nothing but charge your credit card. They guarantee your rankings then make up reports to show your number 1. They only will talk to you by phone, never anything in writing because they have nothing to stand behind. They have a sales pitch to speak of how great they are and that customers will find your new site. Zero!!!! When you try and cancel, they tell you how great your placement is, even though there is no proof of your placement.

STAY AWAY SEO & WEB SITE SCAM,

Local Lighthouse is a scam, they are obstinate and have no interest in their customer's welfare. The SEO scam: they choose SEO words that are at the bottom of the search list then if you complain enough they get these words on 1st page of Google. When asked to put real search words on they refuse, change them, add qualifiers etc, because they can't get you on, for real SEO search words. WEB SITE scam: They create their own "landing page" to which the search is directed. If you jump of their merry-go-round all your investment is lost. Your WEB SITE was never intended as part of the search or SEO.

Local Lighthouse Seo Review from Nashville, Tennessee

I got scammed out of money that I could not afford. They told me I would be specifically in the front of the list for restaurants. I called upset and talked to a young lady there and she actually googled it from her cell phone and could not find my ad at all. I requested this be canceled and it was supposed to be so after s few months I see it's coming out of my account again . I've tried everything so now it's on to the news stations so that they let other businesses know this is a scam
