OK, so the title is a play on a story I posted about two weeks ago – http://www.oibo.org/false-profits.html - it was called “False Profits Are Around Us” (a play on the word Profits/Prophets).
If I were an unethical “guru” and wanted to truly rip you off, I would be posting the fact that my site, http://www.online-internet-business-opportunity.com is #1 for the search term “Mohamed Bhimji” (my name).
You see – that’s what a lot of IM wannabees do! They rate #1 for obscure or really l-o-n-g tail search terms and then flog it in your face! They expect YOU to shell out your hard earned $$$ to buy into their con.
You know what – they usually get suckers falling into the trap.
Sorry – I hate calling people suckers, they really are not. It’s just that they’ve fallen for the slick marketing graphics and strong copywriting. They flash the Google page that proves they are #1 like this:
And visitors droll… “how can I get there”.
I wish there was a magic pill you could take and all your worries would go away. It doesn’t work that way.
Hard work. Determination and ACTION is what’s needed.
So yah – it’s great that I’ve got the top spot for my name (oddly enough, Richard Lee is just behind me!!) but how many people are going to search using my name? Probably a few that are curious to know more about me, and stalkers but that’s about it.
Before you believe the word of the profit-mongers, do a bit of basic research into their claims. I can bet you that they will turn out to be false…
…oh yah, from that story http://www.oibo.org/false-profits.html - if you do a search for the term internet marketing stratagies (misspelled) the site in question is still identified by Google that it “could harm your computer”.
