    Does anyone know if there is any truth to this?

    I wonder if that means that they are going to have some sort of customer service department, that actually tries to help clients, something that have neglected in the past?

    I also have to wonder if they are going to drop the whole ?anything you do to your website for the sole purpose of making it rank higher is unethical? line? It would be more unethical to charge someone $25,000.00 per year and do nothing.

    My two cents, on a fair playing field Google?s SEO team (100 strong) wouldn?t have a chance. All they can do is create some content and submit it to a couple directories. I don?t see them being able to compete that way.

    The cost will be something like $ 25000 per month not year. Man that's huge don't know how many people will be able to afford it.

    Hmmm, I'll belive it when it comes from a more credible source. Can't see it happening myself.

    I find it pretty hard to believe that this is not a violation of even the weakest ethics.

    $25,000 per month is peanuts for some companies..... The ones they are targeting probably spend $10,000+ per DAY on adwords

    lol that is very funny client send them $25K they just change their alghoritm that client website are in first page and that's it :D ok this a joke they won't do it but they coul lol. In fact this is very weird google itself always claimed that backlinks for every website should appera naturally e.g if somone liked website they link to it. What do they plan to do for $25K? use only Onpage SEO?

    I find it strange that no one else is talking about it and the author didn't link out to anything that would prove her claims.

    I also find it even stranger that someone would have nothing better to do then to sit around and make this stuff up.

    It?s my reason for posting it here. I was wanting to know if anyone else had heard anything about this.

    And what happens if you stop paying them? This is close to paid organic search as you are going to get if it happens.

    I think that this is a bunch of BS, and if Google ventures into the SEO market, they are just going to giving themselves more headaches then it's worth.

    And customer service. For the little guys it is a joke, but when you are spending $25K+ a month in PPC you get access to your own PPC customer service rep. I know guys that spend that much and more, and they have their own personal contact at Google they call if they have any issues.

    I call BS... i didn't find a single credible source that has reported this and Google being on Wall Str. and everything you would think that at least one major media outlet will report they are planning to create a new service..... not to mention that the whole thing is a huge conflict of interest and pretty much anyone will be able to sue them and win.

    It couldnt be real, I mean wow you could spend 25k a month and get number one spot for the highest paying offer around and make twice that back.

    If it was true I would get a loan just to do it haha.

    Haha... The author of this article knows NOTHING about SEO. He talk about SERP as Page Rank.

    25,000$ to get a better "Page Rank", funny stuff.

    Google will face big antitrust lawsuits. They have adwords to make money. Now the biggest companies will just have to pay 25k per month to get top spot. I don't think they will do that because they will lose millions from adwords. Many adwords advertisers pay hundreds of thousands per month. If thay can pay just 25k why would someone continue to use adwords ?
