* Because they are real.

A couple of days ago I received a text message (SMS) to my phone informing me that my site was about to be de-listed from Google. It went on to say I needed to contact the sender within 3 days to keep my Google listing active. The good news is it would cost only $40 and they can assure me it won't happen if I hire them because they are Certified Google Search Partners. Yes, there are Google Partners. No, they do not have any special powers.

Today Mike and Ken (that's me) will discuss these types of scams and how to avoid becoming a victim.

Today's show is 30 minutes and you can either ask a question in the chat room or by calling in. Both require us to be live.

Ken is @thekencook

Mike is @mikemueller

Always a huge thanks to Kevin MacLeod of INCOMPETECH for most of the music used during the show.
