Recently, a new client of mine in Vancouver Canada brought something puzzling to my attention and needed my help to decipher across various discrepancies while they were working with Yellow Pages Group (YP) Canada with regards to their Pay-Per-Click (PPC) AdWords Campaign. As I was collecting many data points, I thought it would make sense to warn people on working with YPG as they may be double dipping in your wallet behind the scene. I basically was tasked to reverse engineer all aspects of their contractual agreement as YP Canada were unable (and probably unwilling) to shed any lights over a large number of data points. That in itself seemed troublesome enough to me to raise many red flags so here they are.

“Alex is so passionate about what he does, his enthusiasm is contagious! I can honestly say that I had some doubts about what Alex suggested. I did not see the need and was concern about costs. Alex took the time to patiently educate me on the subject of Search Engine Optimization, Website Ranking and Link Building. I did not even know what these were a year ago and now I even have my own blog!”
