I need to moan. I’ve spent most of this week undoing the issues other “SEO professionals” made for some new clients.
One company was charging £400 a month, for six months, and supposedly never noticed that the robots.txt file was blocking all search engines from visiting.
Another set up a CNAME redirect for a site–and naturally Google was marking everything as duplicate content!
I wish this industry had fewer cowboys. A slick website and lots of promises does not a good company make.
