    A French agency sends mass emails, they claim to be a "certified google seo agency".
    They are careful to write on their website, but do so in their emails.
    You and I know it does not exist. Pure crap. In my view , they harm the business.

    You can be a Google Certified Adwords Partner, etc..

    The problem is that people tried to make it sound like they are Google themselves and Google has gone after them.

    There would not be, however, a certification for SEO.

    Google does provide adwords certification and when you have completed the course you can also use the seal google provides.. Its a personal thing so if they send it in email and not show it on website its norm.

    You can be Google AdWords certified but no "SEO" so there's something wrong.

    You have just started a thread about the legitimacy of a claim in a spam email.

    Just sit there and think about what you have done.

    Ask them to send you the certificate and share it here. And tweet it to Matt Cutts just for fun.

    @stehugues Spam ? Why ? I know about adwords certification. I am talking about crap. Someone who claims certified by google for natural results.

    Your original post is not so clear to read, if I am wrong I apologise.

    But I have checked the website you gave us and I cannot see where they claim to be SEO certified? I am now lost completely.

    OP is referring to this page: http://www.doyousoft.com/referencement.cfm
    However, they said they were PestaShop SEO & SEM certified (you know, one of those Matthew Woodward certifications), not Google. As for the other certifications for Google Shopping, Google Analytics, and Google Adwords, they exist.

    Sorry if I was not so clear, french is my natural language. I wanted to say they claim to be seo certified only in emails, not in their website. I think it is not innocent :)

    As I told to SteHugues, They say their are certified for natural results only in emails. In french : "Bénéficiez du savoir-faire de nos consultants certifiés
    en référencement naturel et payant. Google translate :"
    Benefit from the know -how of our certified consultants natural and paid search."
