We all know about Google calling folks to sell them AdWords assistance directly, we reported it back April 2005 when Top PPC Names Say No to Google AdWords Professionals. Heck, even cartoons were created Explaining the SEM & Google Relationship. But reports at WebmasterWorld show that since Google opened an Israel office Google is now calling Israeli AdWords customers that already have PPC management companies.
WebmasterWorld member Yelled_Boy says that Google has called every client of his (for whom he already manage AdWords campaigns) and attempted to convince them that they would do a better job then his company. He said after speaking with Mayer Brand head of Google Israel, he confirmed that Google was contacting "selected clients." Now is that fair? No, but it happens all over.
