SEO's Now Critique

The other day, SEOs went after and over took it. Now, Edward Lewis is asking "when did TOPSEOs become an Independent Authority on Search Vendors?"

Most SEO companies have received an email from TopSEOs in the past. I know I personally received a bunch, basically rewarding my company for being a top SEO company. The thing is, I always deleted them because they seemed spammy. It turns out, this is a real company doing real work. The question is, how good are they are what they do?

We have some feedback on them at the Sphinn thread and most of those that chimed in, didn't think they were very much of a creditable SEO evaluation company.

Jill Whalen said:

My experience with them was that when they were brand new, they listed my company, High Rankings, in their top 10. There was no payment involved as I believe they were brand new, or fairly new.

Then they send me emails to let me know, which also told me I should promote the fact that I was listed.

They even sent snail mail that provided ways to promote the fact that my company was listed. I believe the materials may have also provided ways in which I could advertise my company with them.

I threw it all in the trash.

So I decided to find my company, which does NOT offer SEO services. I found my company listed not once, but under two different profiles. The first shows my company, again, which does not offer SEO services, as ranking in the top 6 for the past few months.

Now, these aren't "SEO" rankings but rather "Web development" rankings, which my company does offer.

  • #6 - Best Web Development Company, March 2010.
  • #6 - Best Web Development Company, February 2010.
  • #6 - Best Web Development Company, January 2010.

Do you think this is legit? Someone did interview the owner just recently at a search event:

So what do you think?
