“worst company ever dealt with”

Written on: 23/04/2016 by dpickering74 (1 review written)

without doubt worst company ever dealt with. paid £120 as was told my website would be page 1 of google for a month. over the 30 days I had to call every day to ask why my website was nowhere to be seen. I was fobbed off with excuse after excuse. At no point was my website seen anywhere on google searches. to add to this the staff told me I was a liar, threatened to sue me for slander. I asked for a copy of the recorded sales call I received so I could prove what they had promised and failed… Read Full Review

“Rip off”

Good sales pitch but such a waste of time and money I was on page 1 of Google for 3 days out of the month I signed up for the first 3 may I add I phoned up and I was told that I was still on page 1 I searched every different way possible and yet still couldn't find my company played phone ping pong without any answers for a few weeks and gave up… Read Full Review

“Shocking”

Written on: 18/03/2016

Absolutely shocking. Signed up for what I was told was 1 month. They then continued to take payments after I cancelled. They're now saying I have to cancel online as they don't accept cancellations over the phone. Typical. Add to that they will not cancel my account as they say I owe them 70 quid. If you ever get a call from these people avoid them like the plague. the person I dealt with is my acct manager and he is the most smug and unhelpful human being I have ever had the misfortune of… Read Full Review

“Appalling Company”

Written on: 16/02/2016 by Colin16 (0 reviews written)

Avoid this company at all costs. If only I had read these reviews before I was tricked into a useless rolling contract with Buoyancy Media. If they cold call you like they did me put the phone down. All they want is your money and provide no service at all. Everything said below happened to me too. I am working really hard to set up my business and a lot of my profit has gone to these sharks just to get them off my back.To make it even worse their service didn't produce any new customers… Read Full Review

“Terrible ! Rip off !”

Written on: 05/02/2016 by Jackson220 (1 review written)

This company got me on a one off term advertisement offer and then tied me to a rolling 30 day which I was mislead into by sales man who said that it will not continue after 30 days I don't need to do anything it will just not continue ! And then carried on charging me for 3 months without me knowing ! When I cancelled they charged me a final month and then I requested the phone conversation between me and the salesman and they wanted 100 pounds ! Absolutely disgusting company ! I spoke to one… Read Full Review

“Dont bother using them”

Written on: 03/02/2016

company were great at getting you on-board, the rep worked very hard to make sure I got as close to my ideal landing page as possible given the limitations imposed by only paying about £150 for the month. Didn't have 1 enquiry and being on Pg 1 of Google actually meant a sidelined ad to the right of the page where people are likely not to see or click on and seems like a marketing ploy by Google and such media companies to make money off people like me who believed the hype. They never got in… Read Full Review

“AVOID, rip off, terrible service”

Written on: 27/01/2016 by Fsummers (1 review written)

Well this company rang me after I put ad elsewhere, they gave me a whole selling pitch of being at the top of Google, easy to cancel as you only pay for one month, that they only take on 1 customer specialising in your service, offered me a website landing page. Well I gave it a go, They built me a landing page which was rubbish, I told them and I did one myself which they copied. My ad went up after a week or so. I had no business come from it, when I got my report I tried ringing and… Read Full Review

Hi, sharks indeed. it's a pity you didn't check out my review you would see they tried to sting me as well. Take them to court. or get your card company to back charge them. Good luck.

Hello Smudger,

Thanks for your comments. I have notified trading standards in Manchester about these sharks. I have also contacted my Bank about them taking money out of my account.

There service was dire and it would be good to get a list of names and contact details from everyone who has been shafted by Buoyancy

Did they give you the impression they were from Google - that's what happened to me! I would be interested to know how you get on with cancelling because that seems to be the difficult bit! I tried to cancel online and thought it was done but it was the week-end and they then said it was too late. Now I'm being threatened by a debt-collection agency.

Yes exactly the same I fact they said they were Google to me. They have done me over and I need to report these guys. We need everyone who have been shafted. I am desperately trying to get my money back but no luck as yet?

I think the more people who pass the details on to Trading Standards and any consumer organisation who can help, the better - and we need to collect as much evidence as possible.

Hi Guys we do need to do something about this has I have tried cancelling and now I do not get any emails for me to cancel the campaign. I have reported them to my bank for taking money our of my account. I have cancelled my debit card to stop them taking anymore money. A guy threatened me on the phone the other day saying I am in breach on contract. Please can everyone supply their contact details so we can get the ball rolling with the Police and Trading standards this needs to be stopped. We will have more evidence if we all go forward but trying to do this individually does not make the case very strong but collectively it does. SO LETS STAND UP TO THEM regards

“Buoyancy are Great!”

Written on: 11/12/2015 by 419O'Sullivan (1 review written)

Finally!! A company that do exactly what they promise! At first i was quite worried about costing, as i though it was quite expensive for putting me on the 1st page of Google, but for the money I have spent (month by month) i can say that i am very very pleased with the results. I gained in total 7 new inquiries in just the first 2 weeks which really really good. I asked them where they found me and they said from google, which is how i know it was down to this wonderful company. I will… Read Full Review

I THINK it depends if you're a private individual or a business. I've been told that there is a statutory 14 days for individuals but that it's not the same for businesses.

“Not the cheapest around but excellent results”

Written on: 19/11/2015 by superpass_sheffield (1 review written)

I run an independent driving school in Sheffield. I had a website built a few years ago, we was doing well in google up until about 4 months ago. Our rankings disappeared from Google. We contacted Buoyancy after we found them online for website rankings recovery or as they call it seo recovery. To cut a long story short our website was hacked by spammers who created dozens of hidden pages with ads and links selling fake designer goods. Then the spammers created thousands of spam website… Read Full Review

“Dodgy contracts. Avoid at all costs”

Buoancy media Good sales pitch but poorly implemented. I was sold a package whereby I agreed to pay for an initial consultation and a bit of tweaking on my website (which frankly was little more than I could have done myself (installing yoast and a ticker plugin on my home page) I was told that after this i would need to let it run for 3 months so I agreed to this without signing any contract. As far as I could tell the work carried out was minimal. I used google analytics to monitor links to… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/11/2015 by elaneydelany (1 review written)

It pains me to give 1 star, but minus stars are not an option. Not only was i misquoted a price for a non existent service, i also spend numerous hours and days going round and round in circles. I initially thought that this was a crime and phoned my bank, who agreed and refunded the transaction, which i then unfortunately had to inform them it was an actual 'company', mores the pity. The only area in which Bouyancy Media were quick to respond was taking the money out of my account.. they… Read Full Review

“Waste of time and money”

Written on: 02/11/2015 by EK1973 (1 review written)

The sales pitch from this company was good, but that is the only good thing that came out of the company. Once you've signed up it appears that very little is done by them, and when you ask for feedback on the progress they are unable to give anything meaningful. Now I know just how little they actually did, I could have quite easily done the same thing myself for a fraction of the cost. Unlike some of the other reviews here I had no problem cancelling and followed the specified link on the… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/10/2015 by 158Fuller (1 review written)

I had a call from buoyancy sales person a few month ago. We agreed on a trial month but they put me on a contract without my authorization. But its very tricky and complicated to cancel the contract. A normal cancelation via email is not enough , they will not even reply properly only send you a computer generated answer. Cancellation still pending. They even changed password after I went through the cancellation procedure so I assumed its all done. But they called me a few days ago that… Read Full Review

“AVOID AT ALL COST”

Written on: 20/10/2015 by GerardoPenn471 (1 review written)

Avoid this company at all cost. It is a total waste of time and money. We first took a phone call from a sales person who made the product sound fantastic and guaranteed that if we brought there and then our advert would be live by 5pm. 2 days later and having to make numerous calls we were advised that it was a busy area that we were in and the add would be up later in the day they would push it to the front. Once the add went live the wrong key words had been used and clearly Buoyancy… Read Full Review
