Wal-Mart to Offer Search Engine Marketing Services

Dec 28, 2007 - 9:19 am 4 by

Karl Ribas spotted a great find the other day: Wal-Mart is now offering Search Engine Marketing services at this sign-up link. The offering seems to be a $100 per month PPC service led by a Redmond Washington SEM agency.

Forum members are having a field days with this finding, even though Barry points out over at Search Engine Land that the service has actually been available since the summer of 2004. Here are some reactions:

WOW, I never thought they would go that low. Now Wal-Mart/Sam's Club wants poor people to pay them for NOTHING when search engines pick your sites up for free? Freaking amazing...

Tim Dineen says:

I love their SEO service: "Establish a local search profile and have your website submitted to the major search engines..."

(Sound familiar?)

Some folks (like Matt McGee) think it's an April Fools joke. It must be given that the company offering has been around for 3.5 years now and nobody has really heard about it.... is it for real?

Forum discussion continues at Sphinn and WebmasterWorld.
