They where claiming that only a Google Authorised Partner could upgrade the My Business local search so that it could tie in a number of categories and key words to the listing so enhance which searches it may come up it, essentially, reducing the needs for ad words and pay per click.
Is there any truth to this or are the just phishing and try to sign up business to what is essentially the free My Business page and trying to charge for it.
Has anyone else herd of this?
@4 E Some Google trusted verifiers are there. But i am not sure about it.
Google maps can be verified by a business owner without any cost. it's totally free. They may be some digital marketing company to make business.
