How To Get A Bad Yelp Review Removed

by Darrel Chavez in News, Yelp Marketing

Bad Review Damaging Your Business or Reputation?

bad yelp review

Think you can get a negative yelp review removed think again and don’t bother asking them to remove your yelp listing because they wont. Maybe you want to join there extortion club and pay a monthly extortion fee to get positive reviews to start sticking. Even paying for yep reviews none of these tactics will work. You can’t remove a bad yelp review and you cant remove your listing but I do have a way to get your bad yelp removes out of plain sight.

I have had huge success getting my clients 1st page rankings, even the #1 spot for years. So I figured why not offer a new service and do the reverse? Why not offer a service where if you type in your business name on Google instead of the negative review being the first thing you see, how about that negative review appears back on page 2, 3 or 4?

If your business is hurting because the first thing anyone sees when searching for you is a negative review I can help. The key to making your bad review disappear is to drive it back to the 2nd, 3rd page or more pages back. This is done with creating micro review sites with high authority to out rank yelps profile. Instead of seeing your bad reputation or false review they see many different websites with nothing but glowing reviews and only you can control what reviews can be posted. To start getting your reputation or brand fixed please call 714-404-8025 or contact us.


One Honest AC Repair Man Tells The Truth About The Air Conditioning Racket

by Darrel Chavez in Google Advertising, News, Uncategorized

This post is probably more appropriate for a personal blog but I’m so fed up with shady people I had to let everyone know the truth. I have been living a real life nightmare this past week involving my home air conditioner. By being ripped off I discovered something about air conditioning companies, the majority of them will take advantage of you to make more money. Heres what happened to me and what one honest ac repair man shared with me about these companies.

The first repair man never stepped foot in my house, he plugged in his gauges had me turn on my ac and determined it was low on freon. Actually let me back up because the phone call I made was definitely a red flag. I called Temecula Valley Heating the worst air conditioning company in temecula. The guy at first seemed really nice, gave me a low quote of $50 per pound of freon. He then passes me over to another guy to take down my address. This guy says the pricing for freon could change when they get there. I was thinking ok that’s weird, why would the price magically change when you arrive but I said I expect the price not to change and they said no problem.

When this guy arrives looking so unprofessional he gives me the price right away, $350 to charge both ac units with freon. I asked him how does he know how much freon to use. He then gets irritated, I say that’s too much just to fix one of them only for now. He then says he either fixes both units today or hes leaving. I have two young kids and knew I already had to pay him $75 bucks just for him to rob me blind so I agreed. The ac works for a couple hours or maybe just long enough for them to collect their money and run. They basically quote me really low to book the call then change the price when they get there. Only to offer me a quick fix and not fix the actual problem.  I then hired a second company who told me my freons low. I basically told them to get the hell out of here. They did the exact same thing as the other companies. They didn’t check anything, didn’t go in the attic, didn’t open anything up. They did nothing!

I was seriously just thinking of buying two brand new units. Until I had  my neighbors dad come over. He was a retired hvac owner in Chicago. He really blew me away. He spent really little time outside and focused on the inside of my house. He had me turn on both units and he started feeling the vents. He noticed no air was coming out even when ac were off and fans were only on. This caused him to go in the attic and check out my furnaces. He actually used a tool opened up something and found the problem how about that. I hired 2 companies before him and none of them checked anything. He found both circuit boards with the same burn mark, a burnt resistor.

He then explained to me the scam game these ac companies run.

So why would two different companies act, do and say the exact same thing. The reason is they love to put freon in your ac unit why, because it’s easy it fixes the unit quick but more importantly if you have too much freon in your system eventually it will break down so they can come back and sell you a new unit. It all made perfect sense and coming from a retired pro with 20 years in business I knew it was true. Below I compiled a list of legit trustworthy companies that hopefully can help you with your air conditioner problems.

9 Essential Local SEO Tips For Orange County Business Owners

by Darrel Chavez in Local SEO Marketing, News, Social Media

Transitioning your business into a successful Internet enterprise requires not only basic knowledge of local SEO, but also more advanced concepts as well. For starters, and at least a refresher, below is a list of basic SEO techniques with mention of more advanced SEO concepts designed to help create an upward push to the top of the SERPS (search engine results pages).

CONTENT – Yes, it is that important. Remember that great content that is original and interesting will trump any web page with fancy graphics, or slick sales text. Create compelling headlines that will draw your readers in and cause them to act. In your headline, state the problem with a definite timeline, and follow that with your solution to their problem. Do that, and your headline will grab your reader’s attention.

KEYWORDS – Effective keyword research is still important, regardless of the latest trends. The reason is simple. The average Internet searcher still uses keywords to find information. You want to be listed high in the SERPs so they find you! A good first step is to optimize your content for your keywords.

SOCIAL MEDIA – This is an absolutely exploding area. Building your online brand reputation is critical and starts with getting your name out there. Trust of your business is by far the most important aspect of building your brand. Build that trust by keeping your website content relevant, current, and interesting. Upload photos to help complete the message you want your reader to understand.

Each of the services below offer effective techniques to help you get your name, website, and message visible to the public in and around Orange County. Use them extensively for the most exposure! These are great ways to spread the word about your business and by letting them present your business in the best possible light.

GOOGLE PLACES FOR BUSINESS – One of the rising stars in this arena is Google Places Marketing for Businesses. Combine this with Google+ (Plus) and get your business involved in one of the communities.

BING PLACES FOR BUSINESS – Microsoft and Bing apply their special way of featuring your business.

YAHOO LOCAL – Get a free listing in their basic plan, or subscribe to their enhanced plan.

TWITTER – If you’re not using Twitter to help advertise your business and to help with your brand, you’re missing out on much needed exposure. Utilize Twitter, “follow” like-minded business professionals like yourself, and allow them to follow you.

TWITTER ANALYTICS – Twitter is an effective tool for SEO, if it’s used correctly. Understanding the effectiveness of Twitter is detailed within Twitter Analytics. Learn exactly what is working in your campaign, and what isn’t. Learn who is sharing your tweets. This is very powerful information that will help in your online marketing efforts.

EMAIL MARKETING – Offering your readers something of value for free, in return for signing up for your mailing list is a great way to quickly build your email list. Send your online newsletter to your growing list with links to your local listings. Additionally, keep them informed of upcoming events and specials by way of your newsletter. For those spur-of-the-moment specials, use Twitter to send your message.

This article, “Online Marketing Orange County” is intended to provide tips and techniques you can use immediately to help transition your business to the Internet. Use the tips every day and you will see upward movement of your website in the SERPS, as well as an increase in awareness of your business.
