Fake Google Salesmen Are Actually SEO Telemarketers - Slashdot. Most businesses have gotten sales calls from people saying they are from Google. However, they aren't. The first rule is: never hire someone who claims they will improve your Google search results (so called Search Engine Optimization or SEO). You are far better off to spend your time and money creating better content, more often. The second rule is that fake sales calls are never from Google, and you should block them or hangup. Got it? Good, now go create some great content.
