If you've owned a business for more than a week, you've probably started getting them.  I'm talking about those robo-calls that begin with a message of "This is so-and-so, your local Google specialist..." or something to that effect.  The message then goes on to say some variation of the following:

  • There is a problem with your Google listings.
  • Your business is not appearing in Google search results.
  • There are negative reviews about your business.
  • There is a problem with your Google+ page.

Those are the messages I've heard personally (yes, I get these calls too), but I'm sure there are other variations.  The bottom line here is that these calls are a scam.  There may or may not be a problem with your local directory listings, your business may or may not have negative reviews online, and your business may or may not be appearing at the top of search results for keywords related to your industry.  However, there is one thing I can guarantee: the reason you are getting the robo-calls has nothing to do with any of the above.

Listen to this episode to learn what is actually going on.
