    Had a strange call today, he asked me if his company could help me get my web site on page one of google, I told him I was happy with my placement, so he asked be for a zip code and he googled carpet cleaning 47161. I came up on page one and he said huh, and said never mind, thanks for my time and hung up. Never had such a soft sell before.

    Yeah i dont like when they try to sell you their services and dont even make a small research to see what you have and where you at in SEO. They start like "do you have a website?"..

    I would at least do a small research before offering something.

    Yeah, I feel like for someone to call you up out of the blue and say that they want to help you get your web page ranked #1 on google KINDA raises a red flag
