    Today I got a call from Google itself, I about fell out of my chair... Then they preceed to tell me why they called...

    The caller told me they wanted to sell me some Google Places advertising... Never knew there was such a thing...

    Anyway, I told this salesman to have his boss tell his boss to tell his boss to kiss my fucking ass! If Google was the last media outlet on the planet I could get a click from, but I had to pay for it, I'd rather starve.

    Then the salesman had the nerve to ask me why I felt that way...

    I said, do you really need to ask?

    The salesman said no, I have been getting a lot of responses like that lately.. Have a good day, then he hung up.

    That felt soooo gooood!!!! :cool: :cool: ;)

    it was most likely someone offering to optimize or setup a google places listing for you.. there's a lot of local seo marketers that only concentrate on google places listings.. not google itself.

    Well this guy said he was so and so "from Google" but I agree with you, I have had a ton of calls like that before. Usually they will say they are from such and such company...

    Area code of the call was 650
