    I got an email from a co called Banner Topper, they claim to place you on page 1 for your keyword and place a banner above search results.

    Anyone tried this ?

    Is it BS?

    Sounds like they are talking about adwords, only way you would get your page above search results. You could do this yourself rather than rely on someone that has to spam you about their service.

    It's not exactly AdWords and it's not related only with Google. It works with all major search engines such as Google, Yahoo, Bing e.t.c. and places website or banner on top of page, even before search results.
    Main difference from AdWords is that it's not Pay Per Click so there are no competitors on keywords that you choose. Only your ad will be shown on all search results during whole year after reserve keyword for fixed price per keyword per year (just like buying domain) and price is much much less than what you pay to AdWords for one keyword during year. As a result you get much more keyword targeted traffic to your website with lower price.
    Your banner can be 250 pixels height and up to 100% of browser window width.

    it works based on spyware toolbars etc, which create additional ads in the browser.

    We are sure getting a lot of brand spanking new members asking about this. For some reason I keep thinking about going fishing.

    I received an unsolicited email from them today. You know it's a scam when their website has no address, company information, about us or satisfied clients. But they have had the domain for a month, lol.
