I just received a sales call from a service called Window Positions, a Searchclimbers company. They can “put your website on the top of all the major search engines and actually open your website in the results.”
How do they manage such a desired function? Well, it’s all through an “update” to Internet Explorer. If a user has this sort of update, when they search for a term in Google, a product on eBay, or a story at CNN, they get the top half of their screen dominated by an advertiser.
This “in your face” marketing starts at just $500/year and goes up from there, depending on the popularity of the keyword.
But don’t get too excited, their site does state that “Our Network consists of 16 million users, and not the whole internet.”
How did they get there, you ask? According to the sales person, there are lots of people that want to update IE, and their product is an IE update. It’s also bundled with other programs on Download.com.
