Having a lot of problems with this company do not give them your card information they will keep charging your account even after you tell them to cancel and will not take your calls when you try and contact them. Wouldn't recommend their services to anyone

Review by Rohyt Yablon3 years ago
they are very aggressive salesmen
i did not want to do it at first only because my business is a marijuana delivery service in Newport Beach
i found no value in front page google placement but Zack showed me a very good point
due to the fact that marijuana was just legalized in California a lot more/NEWER stoners are going to be looking for a way to find weed but they dont know about weed maps so i gave i local gurus / zack a little bit of trust only because he was super nice i went with a 239$ package so he could build me a website and he could set me up to my full potential at first i was mad cuz i didn't get any calls from google for the first 60 days and i called to cancel but they told me to be patient and i did
that was 4 months ago and now i dont have have a delivery service anymore i just opened up a storefront in laguna beach i still get calls and my website is perfect i am glad i gave it a little bit of trust

So they called wanting to sell us SEO. I very politely asked to be put on the do not call list. They refused, stating it was my fault they called because our BBB rating was so high. I wanted to get their info so I said, "okay, what are you selling?" They told me. I asked for their info - they gave me a bogus company name... it took a bit of research to discover they were iLocalGurus and not the other company. They are terrible, and it's obvious that all of the "good" reviews out there are from employees. Stay away. Hint: if they were any good at SEO, wouldn't you be able to find them in a Google search for SEO companies?

These people will die slow deaths for their telemarketer calls claiming to be google. They buy your business phone number call for you and say they'll call back again soon when you say don't call me.

I local gurus was the best decision I ever made. They saved my business. It took a little while but customer service is always there to answer any questions I have. Thank you I local gurus.

I should have read the review before i signed up with this company. It seems that everyone has the same thing to say. They don't keep with their promises. the account managers only reach out to you in the very beginning. i talked to my account manager and she had no idea who i was, claiming she has more than 500 accounts and doesn't have time to deal with mine. very dishonest company. I HIGHLY DO NOT RECOMMEND THEM!!!

Originally I was going to put 4 stars since I was eager to see my results and assumed it would be instant after purchase. Understandably it took about 90 days for everything to be up and working but once it was my return on the my investment was about %350 and is still growing. My business has tripled despite the slow start for this service. It definitely isnt a "get rich quick" system but certainly added a lot of credibility to my business and quality for potential customers searching for my business and for customers via word of mouth. It has been 9 months since I opened my account and like many people was a tad disgruntled at the start. And after reading these reviews and not seeing results immediately i called them and though I was very vehement in presenting my inquiry a customer service lady explained everything. Clearly stated in an email that it may take 90 days I waited the 90, and now am very grateful I did.

DO NOT BELIEVE ANYTHING THIS COMPANY SAYS! THEY SAY THEIR BAD REVIEWS ARE EXTORTION. THE SALES ARE HIGH PRESSURE AND CHASE MAKES YOU FEEL LIKE YOUR ON A TIME LIMIT OR RACE TO GET THE LAST SPOT AVAIL TO ADVERTISE. CHASE WIL TELL YOU YOUR GOING TO BE ON THE FRONT PAGE IMEDIATELY IF YOU SIGN UP NOW. TRY 45-60 DAYS TO FULLY OPTIMIZE. AND THEN HE LIKES TO ACT TOUGH ON THE PHONE. TOTAL DISRESPECT AND LIES!

Are company traffic has gone up 3 fold since we singed up with Ilocalgurus.
If you don't understand SEO or the directories listings its OK. This process takes time but for what these guys provide for the price is un heard of. The website are one of a kind with the ease of using your Facebook business page. Awesome!
If you think you can get all the services for the price these guys offer go ahead but I was paying $999 per month from a company that I had no control of my website.
Being pro active is a plus but ILG will help you. The problem is most people are lazy and think it magic. Bottom line is if you don't start with internet marketing you will be left behind.

Review by CryptoTraderTur Stolrow3 years ago
They lie and say they handle the map listings for google. The clown Ian Lindon tried to tell me that Google doesn't own Google Maps, lol. He claims anti-monopoly laws somehow make him the owner of google maps! This guy is a liar and a crook.
Google controls google's content. Nobody can promise you ANY kind of ranking on google search, google maps, or anything else. Follow google's guidelines for a good listing.

I have worked with iLocalGurus for 2yrs now..in the beginning i was a little Leary because they had a hard time getting access to my google business page but they were very accommodating during that time. Once we got access through google it was all up hill from there. Within 2months my business was on the front page of google and im still there. I love the customer service team and the fact that its all in house NO out of country crap..i send all my buddies to ilg

I had horrible marketing and exposure before I signed up w I local gurus. They completely turned my business around and were so helpful and friendly. They always took time to hear me out and address any questions or concerns I had. I especially love their customer service team. They got me ranking on the first page and so many directories all of my customers tell me that's how they hear about me and find me. I am so grateful I signed up because the amount of money I pay monthly is SO worth the amount of money I make monthly because of them!

Well after a few weeks things were looking a little better but after a few months I am happy enough to write a good review for iLocal Gurus. My business is on the map now and I'm getting more work than I have time for. Thank you ilocal gurus.

Ian solicited my business in early April 2016. I explained that it was a summer only business, and I had to be on the FRONT page of Google by June 1st. Ian assured me that it would be done and that Ilocalgurus had a money back guarantee if I was not totally satisfied.
July 20th, still not on front page, not even on second page!
I have spoken to Cherise and Ragan-both stated, when I said I wanted my money back after June 1, that it was a 90 day money back guarantee, which meant July 5th. It is now July 20th and Ian says that hey don't have a moneyback guarantee! I have to speak to the company owner..John, but he is never there.
Take my advise, don't walk away from this company..RUN AWAY!!!

Upstanding performance for three months now. On the second month I was thinking of changing loyalty to another branding company but when I called in and ask questions about how things were going I thoroughly impressed with the insights I wasn't aware of that I decided to bestow my loyalty to I-Local Gurus indefinitely. In the second month things were looking pretty good but then by the third month my phone was ringing off the hook with new business. I-local gurus = wish granted.
Review by Rhenen3 years ago
I'm an investor and I do a lot of outsourcing for SEO services and the like. I have a partner named Gary who told me I could save about a-thousand dollars going with a company called ilocal - the one I'm reviewing now. I said to Gary - no way for that price, I've tried 'em all mentality. Gary showed me what they did for him in the past and I said I'd be willing to place a bet with him. If the company site ranked within 3 months I'd include that in the investment fund - if not, then he'd cover the loss AND agree to pay one of my other SEO companies the thousand or so a month. With the deal in my favor either way we agreed to me paying ilocal for three months. OK I'm still with them after now, five months. They're doing just about as good as my choice SEO company. Bottom line: I'd bet my money on ilocal again in the future.

Review by Alaje Röndahl3 years ago
I signed on with ILocal Gurus late last year and have never seen any results. Promised to be pushed to the front of the Google Maps section. Supposed to be making post for my business on the Google + page. Hasn't made any in over 6 months. Made repeated attempts to talk to Ian and others at this so called company but never get phone calls returned or they are always "IN A MEETING".Its completely ridiculous and a complete waste of time and money. *BEWARE* Never do business with I local Gurus!

Review by Homeward Sperfslage3 years ago
This company makes false promises. Google constantly changes their algorithm to prevent exactly that. No company can promise top listings and Google makes it very clear. Talk to a professional and save $1,200 a year.
