Dorment website showing high on searched steve legends 6/18/14 1:12 AM
My website which i own and run from the UK was recently sanctioned for something ridiculous even though all my competition seem to be doing the same things with their adverts? I decided i wouldn't change and as a result i don't spend money on adwords. However, i was challenged by a customer to match an online price recently which was very low. I looked at the site he refered me to and discovered several products on sale for less than i can buy at trade. I tried to contact them as i was instantly suspicious and discovered the phone number is disconnected? Trying to contact google is deliberately made difficult. It would be easier to storm the pentagon on my own with a water pistol than get a response or even speak to someone. When is the ''do no evil'' Empire google going to show some interest in customer support and help consumers and buinsess instead of just sitting back and counting the money????

Hi Steve

I'm pretty sure you don't need a water pistol if you want to talk with someone at Google :). For example, if you want to talk about a specific issue that you're seeing on your (or sometimes even on other people's websites), you're welcome to join one of our webmaster office-hours hangouts that we do regularly (in English usually Monday / Friday, every two weeks): https://sites.google.com/site/webmasterhelpforum/en/office-hours . Since the events tend to get full, if you want to join one for sure, you're welcome to drop me a short note on Google+ and I'll invite you directly briefly before the public event starts.

Cheers
John

>However, i was challenged by a customer to match an online price recently which was very low.

there was your first problem.... playing the price match scam game.  


> I tried to contact them as i was instantly suspicious and discovered the phone number is disconnected? 

There was your 2nd problem.  Even when you knew the price to bogus, you still played the price match scam game.



>Trying to contact google is deliberately made difficult.

What would you like to do about your former competition advertising a bogus price?   Seriously, how is any of this Google's problem?



PS: whenever somebody tries to play the price match scam game with me, I simply tell them to buy it elsewhere.  I don't go broke trying to please somebody I can't please and odds are pretty good their fantasy transaction will never go through.

You wish Google to validate all prices and phone #'s daily or weekly

"Trying to contact google is deliberately made difficult."

Of course it is! This is not a Google problem. If it was easy to contact Google, then they would have to put up with all sorts of idiots ringing about stuff that is nothing to do with them!

Depends on the nature of your business doesn't it? I wouldn't mind if I wasn't paying a fortune in seo fees and playing by all the rules Google set out. They're forever setting out guidelines to follow. Then I'm below someone on the search who doesn't even exist.

When you pay Google fees I expect to be able to contact them if I need to..They act in a very Dictorial way. If you get too big you can't then moan about how many people you have to deal with. ..

Re: Dorment website showing high on searched Steven Challinor 6/19/14 2:26 PM
Yes I do..simples

It's Googles problem for not policing their own market place you idiot
Re: Dorment website showing high on searched Benjamin.. 6/19/14 2:30 PM
You can always contact adwords as this is who you pay fee's to.

If you pay fee's to organic search then complain to them

"When you pay Google fees I expect to be able to contact them if I need to"

BUT, you not paying Google anything! Only customers should expect and get customer service!


"It's Googles problem for not policing their own market place you idiot"

Google are not the internet police; they are a just a search engine.

But you're not paying any Google Search fees.  You're not their customer.  The person doing the search is their customer.

>> wouldn't mind if I wasn't paying a fortune in seo fees

That might be part of your problem right there.  If you'd like to share your URL, forum members can dig in and see what's been going on.

If you talking adwords I'm sure you can contact them instantly.
For organic search what fees do you pay? toidi

I do pay Google for adwords and Facebook adverts. They're allowing a dormement site to display 5yr out of date prices and my customers now think I'm ripping them off.
Google do police the search engine and they penalise and promote websites accordingly FACT. I'm convinced Google employ people to come and argue their case on the forums. .I'm suspicious right here right now. Too big too powerfull to much influence. I'm switching my ad campaign to bing.
As for blaming my organic seo team that's ridiculous. They don't send out the Web bots to scan websites and promote or sandbox websites do tgey?
Google are wrong on many fronts.  They're now admitting they're too big to check on what's appearing on their search engine
Re: Dorment website showing high on searched Benjamin.. 6/19/14 2:56 PM
As John said attend one of his hangouts and you may learn more about search

No one here is employed to argue their cases on the forum, if you think that then you are going down the wrong path & we would argue a lot more ;)

Can you post the url of the site that is beating you on prices?

"I do pay Google for adwords and Facebook adverts."

And you will get customer support for that as you are a customer. You are NOT a customer when it comes to organic search, so you get no support for that!


"They're allowing a dormement site to display 5yr out of date prices and my customers now think I'm ripping them off."

How is Google supposed to know that the prices are out of date. Should they be manually checking every one of the zillion websites and the prices they are offerring - you are nbeing ridiculous.


"Google do police the search engine and they penalise and promote websites accordingly FACT."

Not a fact. Google have guidelines that the penalize sites if they break them. Having out-of-date prices is not one of the guidelines! duh?


"I'm convinced Google employ people to come and argue their case on the forums. .I'm suspicious right here right now."

Now you are just coming across as a silly conspiracy theorist by running out the shill argument. Take off your tinfoil hat. 

"As for blaming my organic seo team that's ridiculous"

If you are being outranked by an outdated old website, then your SEO team must not be doing a very good job!

The head of Google Crawling Indexing and Ranking gives you a personal invite that you were not smart enough to see but continue to badmouth  What an Ass.
Re: Dorment website showing high on searched Steven Challinor 6/20/14 12:10 AM
You're a bunch of Google rimmers with no other life I reckon. I don't like them since the appalling treatment I received previously and I'll continue to argue with them. I've sent the url link on several occasions to Google. I was not in front of a pc last night I was using my phone. I won't be wasting too much more effort arguing with a bunch of Google rimmers who mouth off about an issue they know nothing about. If it was your business and money that was suffering you'd be crying and whinging. Bunch of tarts

"I've sent the url link on several occasions to Google."

Why did you do that for?  Google aren't going to remove a site that ranks higher than you and you don't like!!!


"If it was your business and money that was suffering you'd be crying and whinging"

Nope. If I was you I would not be blaming everyone else for my failings. You should be firing your SEO as they obviously doing a  hopeless job at getting you ranking above a defunct website!
Re: Dorment website showing high on searched Steven Challinor 6/20/14 3:49 AM
You're wrong again I've already changed my seo team for that reason you cock. You just busy your pretty little self sucking and rimming Google. I sent the url because I was asked for it knob head
Re: Dorment website showing high on searched seo101 6/20/14 4:32 AM
" I've already changed my seo team for that reason you cock."

That is not what you said above. You said "As for blaming my organic seo team that's ridiculous. "  Your story is now changing.  Guess we can't now believe anything you say. Epic fail.
