Softbean Immitation

Reputation management is an important part of running any business and to that end I like to periodically search the web for mentions of our company, my name personally (lost in many mentions of the Kinks let me tell you) and and what we’ve been doing. In a search over the weekend for references to my speaking engagement at SES on personalization I found the site SEOBEAN (owned by SoftBean). Admittedly I can’t recall the phrase I’d used however that’s besides the point.

I found a few similarities between our services and theirs. Let’s take a couple examples:

From the Softbean property (SEOBEAN.com):
“SEOBEAN Search Engine Positioning ranks your website in the top positions on the major search engines. We know that your business needs success to survive in today’s competitive economy, that’s why we offer a 100% money back guarantee on our guaranteed seo and search engine positioning services.”

From the Beanstalk site:
“Beanstalk Search Engine Positioning ranks your website in the top positions on the major search engines with our GUARANTEED SEO services. We know that your business or firm needs success to survive in today’s competitive economy, that’s why we offer a 100% money back guarantee on our guaranteed seo and search engine optimization services.”

Hmmmmmmmmm.

And there’s more

From the Softbean property (SEOBEAN.com):
  • You will attain a minimum of 5 top 20 rankings on the major search engines across all of your targeted keyword phrases.
  • Your primary targeted phrase will appear on the first page of one or more of the major search engines.
  • You will attain a minimum of 3 top 10 rankings on the major search engines across all of your selected keyword phrases.

From The Beanstalk site:

  • Your primary targeted phrase will appear on the first page of one or more of the major search engines.
  • You will attain a minimum of 3 top 10 rankings on the major search engines across all of your selected keyword phrases.
  • You will attain a minimum of 5 top 20 rankings on the major search engines across all of your targeted keyword phrases.

And just a pet-peeve, the claim to be “Keeping Promises Since 4 Years” and yet a simple whois shows that neither SEOBEAN nor SOFTBEAN have been around that long (both registered last year).

So a warning to SOFTBEAN, you’ve been reported to all the major search engines, we’ve contacted the directories you’re listed in, and we’ll be contacting the article directories you’ve submitted bastardized versions of our articles to. Oh, and this blog post will likely rank #1 or #2 for your name.

As a note, we are not malicious people. We just put in a LOT of hard work writing quality and educational content (we hope you agree). Copyright is a big issue for us and I certainly don’t want the likes of SEOBEAN or SOFTBEAN (or whatever other properties they might own) benefiting from that.
