Monetary Loss:$5.800.00

Original review Jun 27, 2019
hired Booststability in September 2018. They promised me that they will work with Google Bing and Yahoo to place my company on the first pages, in six months and even some keyword in 3 months. After the third month, I called Booststability and ask them what can I do to help. Booststabilitya asked me to pay $400 (i did) after 6 month nobody was able to find my company and I called them to find out what's going on and what should I do to help They told me that I should wait for another month. They were sending reports but I was still invisible on the web. I called again, the answer was that I should wait two more months. After the 9th-month they blame everything on google. They told me that Google won't recognize my company. I paid them $5.800 and 9 months of business and they did not do anything just fake report and now I have to hire somebody who knows what to do. Boostability constantly lies to people. I do not advise people to deal with these crooks. Do yourself a favor and STAY AWAY from Boostability. They are crooks running a dishonest business and trying lie to people by any means possible. I do not understand, after all the negative reviews on Yelp and BBB this company is still in business Share review Write an update Edit review Remove review

Pressured Sales, Just Rips You Off in the end

Boostability is a scam company. I recently contacted them for outreach backlinks for my blog. Initially, they recommended some terrible keywords. I already knew the keywords we wanted to rank for, because we did our own research. After coming back with the recommended keywords, was the first time I was worried. The keywords weren't buyer intent, like I needed for this particular post, and they didn't even make any sense. I get the feeling they were just longtail keywords that they felt they could VERY quickly rank for, and then take credit for page trust we already had. Then they got started on the "work" for the month. After paying $1600 for the month, I got 1 backlink from a site with NO rankings, and NO traffic. 1... Bad... Backlink... that would likely hurt more than it would help. Then they added a bunch of other "hours" of made-up crap work, which mostly consisted of doing blog posts. 2. I wrote them immediately after that and told them I wanted a refund. They responded saying they wanted to talk to me. I didn't respond because I was DONE with them after the complete *** work they provided, after promising that they only work with blogs and sites that have real traffic. I looked at the blog posts, and they literally look like websites that are exact copies of eachother. My guess is that boostability simply gets free blog websites, pays a writer to write a decent post, and then uploads it to their own fake blogs. Unless I get full refund from them. This review is going EVERYWHERE on the internet.

Beware of Boostability

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
When they spoke to me about doing seo work I made it clear I wanted them to focus on on-site seo before off-site. After the first month they only did off-site. I spoke to my manager and told her that I didn't want to continue for another month until we reviewed it together. They went ahead and charged me for the following month and then wouldn't prorate it when I wanted to cancel. Also, the 'content' they wrote for me was so poor I had to disavow the links. I do not recommend them. 2017 Update: We received no refund from Boostability and the content was very poorly written. Notwithstanding the backlinks they provided did harm to our website Google ranking. Whoever, Mr. Shelton is at Boostability better look in the mirror, because Boostability is operating the same online scam today, that they did when we hired them. Don't believe us? Just look at all of the negative reviews this business has online. The only positive reviews this business appears to have online is those written by Boostability employees.

Beware Boostability is a online scam

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
I purchased one of their premium packages for a thousand dollars per month. Late in the first month, they decide to log onto my account for the first time to update the webpage. They barely made any fixes. They didn't fix any of the known problems. The changes they made dropped my Google ranking from page 11 to page 22. They are supposed to be pros. I'm a total rookie and I was able to get my own site to page 11. They very obviously didn't care about their work. I had to go back in and undo their changes. I dropped a grand for nothing. Move on, people. They put no effort into their work.

Email and Phone harassment

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
About six months I contacted Boostability.com in regards to their (SEO) search engine optimization service for my small business website. After several discussions I decided not to sign up with them. The main reason for this decision is they spent more time trying to get me to sign a contract with them then he did trying to explain the SEO service. After I told them no thank you they continued to harass me by phone and email for the next four months. I would get approximately a dozen phone calls and emails a week from them. Luckily for me the harassment as since stopped. I just find it unacceptable that a business would harass someone for four months after you told them a dozens of times you're not interested in their service. If this type of behavior is any indication on how they conduct their business, then it should come to know surprise to anyone as to why they have so many negative reviews online!

Boostability Fraudulent SEO Service

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
I previously worked for a company that wanted me to find them a SEO firm. After doing some research online I find a SEO firm called Boostability. When I called to talk to them about a SEO plan they seemed to know what they was talking about. I would find out later that this would not be the case. We had numerous problems from the start on selecting keywords, the correct market niche etc. Our account Manager was nothing more than a used car salesman that swindled me into getting a SEO Plan. The plan was $756.00 a month for three months. Two and a half months into the SEO plan our business was getting hundreds of complaints from customers saying they placed an order but never received it. We had no record of these orders or customers. The owner of the company did some research and found out that Boostability employees hacked into our website platform and deleted hundreds of customer orders. He also found out that Boostability employees stole these customers credit card information. We received hundreds of complaints and negative reviews online from these customers. A lot of these customers filed chargebacks with their credit card companies and filed complaints against us with the Attorney General’s Office. This was all due to the criminal actions of Boostability and its employees. The owner of the company cancelled the SEO contract after this nightmare. He then asked Boostability for a detailed report of the SEO service that was completed. After spending a lot of time researching we found out that none of the work that we was billed $2,228.00 for was completed. Boostability offered no remorse or apology for their criminal actions. They stole hundreds of thousands of dollars from my previous employer. Because of Boostability fraudulent conduct I was fired from my job and I deserved to be fired. I am the guy that recommended Boostability to my previous employer. I am the guy that got them into this mess. My advice to anyone is stay clear of Boostability because the entire company is a criminal organization that needs to be shut down by the Government.
