Coronavirus COVID-19 Medway SEO Rochester – local business survival blueprint

Coronavirus COVID-19 Medway

Coronavirus COVID-19 Medway SEO offers a simple blueprint to keep local businesses going

Regardless of your position in relation to quality of the media reporting of the outbreak, the hysteria around the spread of this virus has caused very real problems for many businesses.

People have been panic buying and the news is changing daily.

Coronavirus COVID-19 Medway is it real or hyped-up?  🤷‍♂️

It may well be a little over-hyped but whether we believe the media or alternative theories, people are genuinely nervous and are changing their behaviours.

Read more information about the Coronavirus itself directly on the WHO’s website:

The media continues to scare the life out of citizens globally and are ramping up the campaign relentlessly. It’s shaking up a lot of markets all over the world!

The local streets are notably quieter and people are moving around less in general. This is before any government enforcement is passed down.

This has huge impacts on business, especially those without effective online channels. Businesses continually need to generate an increase in sales and this is difficult when people stay at home!

It’s not all bad news if you’re smart 😷

For example, both the healthcare and home delivery industries are very chirpy about their futures.

The big players like Amazon, the major supermarkets and pretty much any kind of food outlets are ever-happy to fulfil your home deliveries.

The outbreak is positive news for those operating any kind of online business with more and more people confident and happy to order online.

In this less-than-social society,  more bods are opting for home delivery for their more general grocery needs, not just that special item you can only get online. Good businesses with great customer service can do really well with social media providing a huge platform to get your message out there and earn reviews.

Don’t worry, we can help you get started! 💪

Medway SEO want to help local businesses make the transition to trading online by providing a local business survival blueprint with practical tips and advice.

Local businesses can survive the Coronavirus outbreak if they recognise the changing market trends and adapt to the new conditions. It doesn’t have to cost a fortune and you really do need to be able to stay in control of your business as much as possible.

How SEO8 Scammers STEAL LEADS from unverified Google accounts

Adam Jefferies - Bulldog SEO's boxing champ

Yes, your competitors can edit your Google My Business listings to steal your leads! 😱

Here’s how it works and how you can ensure it doesn’t happen to your listing. Shady businesses (SEO8) can ruin your marketing efforts meaning you lose leads and calls. It’s low and dirty but it happens a lot.

This article is published and optimised for public awareness. Ordinarily we would swerve this kind of negativity but these kinds of tactics can really damage your business so we’re calling them out.

We’re passionate about protecting our clients and ensuring that full control is always in our clients hands.

How SEO8 tried to scam Medway SEO (and failed badly)

A few days back, we received an email from Google advising us that our listing had been updated. We have made no recent updates to our listing.

Our telephone number was changed to another Medway SEO business called ‘SEO8’

Imagine if were to never have received an email from Google?

SEO8 Case Study:

Scammers look for unverified map listings, then edit the information. These listings can have website addresses and telephone numbers changed. You may have seen the ‘suggest an edit’ link on other listings.

The main issues is that with unverified listings, you won’t be notified and the new information will stay live until you notice it. Assuming you all look at your Google listings regularly right?

Is your Google My Business account verified?

If it’s not, you may be at risk of having your leads stolen by cheap SEO scammers.


If your GMB is verified, you’ll be notified by email and your edits are updated almost instantly. While this is a bit of a laborious task, it’s better than watching someone else update your listing and realising that you have no control.

This genuine link from Google explains how to get verified:

About SEO8 and how they appear to operate

A quick search revealed that the new number was added by a pop up company called  ‘SEO8’. A business using an office address at Cliffe House, Anthonys Way, Rochester ME2 4DY.

They previously used another name with and the grammar in the site copy is probably indicative of the kind of service you’d be likely receive from them. Be very careful, companies using these tactics to rank can seriously damage your business.

Spam program ‘XRumer’ they posted on Google.

XRumer is a piece of software made for spamming online forums and comment sections. It is marketed as a program for search engine optimization and was created by BotmasterLabs. It is able to register and post to forums (forum spam) with the aim of boosting search engine rankings.

We’re not worried about them as competition, in fact here’s the link to their site. They have an insecure SSL certificate so be careful not to submit information.

Beware companies that use black hat SEO techniques to rank. If they are happy to scam other local businesses they will scam anyone, including customers.
