Ipower.com Web Hosting Complaint - Internet Fraud - WebHosting and SEO

Review by dustya on 2006-12-01
PHONEX, ARIZONA -- I paid Ipower.com $1200.00 for services to optimize my website. They promised me for $1200.00 they would have my site getting 3 times as many visitors as it was at the present and that my page ranking would improve. This all to be done in 6 weeks. They got the money I got no services at all they did not even call me I ask for the money back they refused.

I can not understand how they think they are entitle to it. I am 72 years old and have never been ripped off like this before.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Well I know that when it comes to search engine ranking, you can not guarantee results in 6 weeks. Anyone who knows better would not make such a promise. It can take months sometimes for changes/improvements to show up. Did they do any changes to your site? If so, it may take a few more months before you start to see the effects. And even then, it is very hard to measure unless you have specific metrics recorded from before the changes to help compare.

What is the address of your site (if you feel comfortable giving it out) ?

I doubt that they said 6 weeks. For the $1200 you probably get like 6 months. You probably have some kind of hearing problem. They probably would tell you it may take 4-6 weeks before the search engines will crawl the site before you see any results or changes.
