My rating: 0 out of 5 (Scam)
[Update] There is another version of this program called Google Sniper 3.0 which I’ve made a review on here.
[Double update] Also, the program has been taken down by ClickBank so you won’t be able to access his page.
One thing you have to bear in mind when it comes to buying products online is to look for a trial.
Why? Because products who are confident that their content is legit and meaningful doesn’t mind giving the customers a sneak peek preview.
But scam products don’t usually give trials because they know their content sucks and if customers manage to get a preview and see how bad it is, they won’t probably buy, would they?
When I first laid eyes on Google Sniper 2.0, my Spider-Sense was tingling due to the fact that there weren’t any trials.
But I braved through and bought it anyway so that I can write a thorough review of the program.
So is it a scam then? Yes, I totally fell for it and here’s my review.
What is Google Sniper 2.0 All About?
It’s an Internet Marketing program made by George Brown who claimed that he can help you make thousands of dollars with ease by leveraging a loophole he found on Google.
Based on the product, I discovered that basically, the whole training is about making money online through websites that you need to make, and by implementing his system, your website can gain high Google ranking in a blink of an eye (Or so he says!).
In reality, if you’re new to internet marketing, it’s wise to not that getting your website on the first page of Google actually takes up a lot of time and effort and you won’t be able to actually do it in a blink of an eye as everything depends on Google themselves.
Therefore, you can’t actually get your website on the first page of Google and make millions in a jiffy as he claims.
Bear in mind though, that Google Sniper 2.0 has no connections whatsoever with the Google team which that Google can actually sue them if they want to anytime, and being the good guys that they are, no lawsuits have been made of course.
The reason George uses the name Google Sniper is to attract people to buy his program as he will be teaching the methods that he implements to rank his site high on the Google search engine.
Red Flags – Are They Worth the Risk?
The program does sound nice but if you’re considering getting this program, it’s worth noting that there are certain risks to it which I figure I’d share with you to help you decide if it’s the right program for you.
Flaw #1: Google Sniper 2.0 is Outdated
You might have noticed that he wrote there “Bulletproof for 2014”.
Do not fall for this!
Google Sniper 2.0 has been around since 2007 and although you might think that it shows that the company is stable, it is only so because of the money it took from innocent people like you and me.
Why do I say so you ask? Simple.
Because after the Google Panda and Penguin updates, it is now harder to get rankings in Google search compared to last time.
George claims that your website can gain rank in Google in a blink of an eye and proved this by making a blank website called “vintageelectricguitar.com” which got 4th rank in Google search.
But if you take a closer look, the year was 2008.
Plus, it doesn’t exist anymore which probably hints that George’s trick was before Google has updated their algorithms because naturally, many websites will be affected especially those which are trying to cheat their way to ranks by means of Blackhat SEO methods.
Whenever Google does updates, it wouldn’t be pleasant for certain people especially scammers because there are always things that Google detects as a scam, to be penalized.
Once a website has been penalised, that particular website will find it hard to gain traffic and will of course fall very far in search engine ranking so it would definitely not be on the first page of Google anymore.
Let’s see how his website fares now in 2014…
As you can see from my screenshot above, George’s website is nowhere to be found which shows that Google Sniper 2.0 is very outdated and does not work today anymore.
Flaw #2: No Trials
Nowadays, scams are on the rise and every day there’s products online.
People are already cautious in the offline world, what more online?
To ensure that your product is trustworthy, online marketers often have money-back guarantee policies on their products such as Dot Com Secrets X or Wealthy Affiliate.
The reason being is that they are confident with their products enough to let their customers try beforehand before buying because it shows transparency and how confident they are with their products.
Google Sniper 2.0 on the other hand, does not provide any trials as George knows that after you get inside, you’d instantly lose faith because his program is of low quality.
Flaw #3 – Blatant Lies
One thing I hate the most about these sellers is that sometimes they tend to hype you up but never delivers.
There are many lies George implements in his Google Sniper 2.0 and I’m sure you’re very familiar with the first one – Google rankings.
George claims that his product can bring your website rankings up in Google but as we’ve seen before, it doesn’t work in 2014 anymore.
He also uses the name “Google” on his product to create the impression that his product is approved by Google even though it isn’t (I would love to see Google suing him).
George quoted in his video “I don’t know of a single product that has been running for anywhere near that long and is still being searched for as much as Google Sniper throughout the entire internet marketing space.”
This is another big lie because there are many products that have stood the test of time and still manage to deliver honest results compared to Google Sniper.
After discovering how scammy Google Sniper 2.0 is, I bet the testimonials are fake as well wouldn’t you agree?
Flaw #4 – Unethical Pricing Trick
There are 3 pricing tricks that George implements on every visitor who is unfortunate enough to stumble upon his website.
Pricing trick 1: $47/month for those who buy immediately.
Pricing trick 2: $1 trial for 5 days, then a one-time payment of #67. You will only get this choice if you’re planning to exit but a pop-up block (see picture).
Pricing trick 3: $47/month for those who tried exiting the website twice but decided to come back and try it out. These people are penalized therefore they can’t have the $1 trial that they were offered initially.
The pricing trick implemented by Google Sniper 2.0 is enough to sicken me.
People are desperate to make money from home due to the rising costs of living and George takes advantage of these poor people!
I will not stand idly by while I watch people get scammed for being innocent and I hope my review of this product is enough to steer as many people as I can away from getting robbed.
Now having seen the unethical pricing techniques implemented by Google Sniper 2.0, would you even have the thought of buying it anymore?
Flaw #5 – Blackhat Backlinks Implementation
One of the biggest tricks used by George in Google Sniper 2.0 is using backlinks for your website. Here’s what the “Real” Google has to say about that.
As you can see from the video, Google is slowly taking down the power of backlinks from websites so it won’t be beneficial in the long run.
Just in case if you didn’t know Matt Cutts, he is the Head of Google’s Webspam team and it is very wise to heed his words.
There’s a Better Way.
There are other programs that can help you make money online.
One in particular which I can recommend, is Wealthy Affiliate.
It’s an Online Business platform that helps you build an Affiliate Marketing Online Business and you can earn by monetizing your website.
It’s also to date, the only program that has withstood changes of time and still is using the same name which tells a lot about their reputation.
And being a platform in the ever-so-competitive SEO niche, I can’t tell you how important the lessons are in building your online business the right way.
Google is always going to come up with updates and every time they do so, many websites will be affected as they combat scams on their search engine so having the right SEO knowledge will not only help your website stood through time, but also prosper on the light.
If you’ve come across this review, you might have seen my website on Google.
I wrote it in 2014 and it’s still standing here, giving me traffic for as long as my website is still alive and I learned how to do this by implementing the SEO lessons from Wealthy Affiliate’s wide array of content courses.
This is important because as your website grows, you’re continuously bringing in more traffic with your newer content.
With that increasing traffic, you’ll have the chance to learn the various ways on how to monetize your website, regardless of what niche you are in which is one of the attractive points of having that freedom.
To help you see clearly, here’s an overview to help you weigh…
With so many risky tricks implemented by Google Sniper 2.0, I believe you do not need me to tell you to stay away from this product.
George Brown will definitely be creating more versions of Google Sniper and he’ll continue to do so with different titles or names because, by the time many people start complaining, he can’t use that same name anymore and would have to switch to another so newer people wouldn’t know of his scheme.
Thanks for reading, do check out my top-rated program here to find out more.
THis is the first time I see this happening. I will probably have to get use to it. A scam with two versions, LOL. Or I could also call it an upgraded scam.
I agree with you, trials are important. Whoever is confident about their services, doesn’t mind offering a free trial. I’ll remember that! Thanks for that piece of advice.
I really like the fact that straight away you are highlighting the importance of a free trial when it comes to digital products as so many people somehow make the mistake of just parting with their hard-earned money before they even know exactly what they are purchasing! Good solid initial advice here.
Wow, the product claims to be able to literally highjack the results page and get your site there very quickly? I think you have picked up very early on that this product smells very fishy!
I love how you have included the screenshot from the 2008 guitar listing, I think this also highlights, outdated, scammy material here! Good job.
I also love how you have advised your readers on a more legitimate means of making money via the wealthy affiliate platform and I like how you have also included the comparison table, great work!
This is an excellent well delivered review piece and I really enjoyed reading!
Glad you enjoyed it Kris,
I work harder on things that I’m cheated on, so that others don’t go through what I’m going through and after seeing so many of these scams, I might have developed a type of sense to detect whether that program is a good one of a risky one hehe. Appreciate the awesome feedback!
I like how you’re very straight forward with this review, it is very unbiased and it is a very helpful one to most of us. There are countless numbers of scams online and if is very disheartening that the rate at which people are calling for them is so alarming. Google sniper is definitely a bad product with nothing to offer.
Even the 2nd Google Sniper looks scammy as hell and I’m wondering to myself why are people still buying his useless products! Great review Riaz, keep up the good work.
Thanks Ray, there are many new faces trying to have a go at Internet marketing every day and seeing that George is a master scammer, he’s likely reached these fresh faces first than other programs which explains why he still gets buyers. Plus the Google name he uses sounds ‘legit’ to newbies which also adds up to the factor. I hope one day someone will expose him on tv so that he’ll never make another Google sniper again.
Oh my, it breaks my heart seeing such a decent looking man becoming a scam artist. No wonder many youngsters these days make so much money. Thank you for exposing this secret, Riaz. The world needs more men like you 🙂
Wow thank you Jessica, you flatter me 🙂 . I regularly do reviews to expose scammers because I too was initially tricked many times before I finally made my first money online. Thanks for the encouragement, hope to see you around!
Another scam artist making millions 🙁 . This makes me sad knowing that there are many out there who are willing to trick others into buying just to fill in their own pockets. I agree with you that giving trial is one way to give great access to the lessons, and Wealthy Affiliate seems like a decent program I’m planning to give it a try. Thanks for helping us uncover these scam plots, Riaz! The world needs more men like you.
Thank you Debby, I’ll try to do my best and live u to that expectations! And welcome to the family, I dropped you a welcome bonus on your account page in WA, don’t forget to check it out 😉
I joined Google Sniper way back since 2011 and what you said in your review is totally true – it doesn’t work! Sure it worked last time but after Google’s updates, none of my Sniper sites are ranking. I tried your Wealthy Affiliate recommendation Riaz, and I have to admit, there is great content on how to get your site ranking! I absolutely love how Kyle gives updates on how to adjust your website to Google because that is what’s lacking in Google Sniper. Great review man
Thanks for the feedback Bernie, glad that you found Wealthy Affiliate helpful! I too tried Google Sniper a while ago that’s how I was able to make such a review, if you need any help I’m always in WA , just let me know and i’ll be more than happy to help you out 🙂
Google Sniper looks really legit and I almost fell for it. Thanks for helping us newbies out with your reviews Riaz, I know how long it takes to write even 1 post, especially with the amount of time you spent for the product research. The fact that you actually buy the program just to give us a review is really touching. Google Sniper 3 is out already too, I think it would be great if you could do a review on that one , I’m betting it’s another scam from the looks of it. Thanks again, I wish you all the best!
Thanks Ferdinand, I know how it feels like to fall into scam after scam when all you ever wanted is the right way to make money online. It is disappointing to know that there are greedy people out there who are willing to trick you just to fill in their pockets and that is why I’m exposing them one by one. Glad that you found my article helpful, all the best to you too!
I tried Google Sniper, Dot Com Secrets and even Empower Network but made no money. I wasted $11,000 overall and my husband left me for being too hopeful on something that looks promising. I am broken Riaz, please help me. I know all I need now s a chance to start over, please let me know any legitimate programs I can try?
I am sorry to hear that Chelsea, there are just too many people being scammed by George and this saddens me that he is all happy and satisfied while his customers are suffering. There are only a few programs out of a hundred that I’ve reviewed which are legitimate but my #1 recommendation is Wealthy Affiliate as you can join for free and start building your online business with a community of like minded individuals. Let me personally help you succeed by joining WA Chelsea, I’ve been a member there for a while now and always will so I’ll greet you and even check your progress from time to time to advise you. You will be alright Chelsea, be strong
Omg I almost bought this Google Sniper thing! Thank god I came across your site Riaz, now I know better than to fall for these scams. Are there any particular programs that you would recommend me to join Riaz? Please help, I have no experience nor money 🙁
Worry not Percy, you don’t need any experience nor any money to start making your own business online. I major in hotel management to be honest and I actually have no idea on how to build websites nor did I have any money at all as I am still a student by the way. But after joining Wealthy Affiliate, I created MyInternetQuest.com (This website you’re looking at) and started making money online all without any costs so I would advise you to give that a try if you believe in hard work paying off. Best of luck Percy!
Google Sniper 2.0 is a scam and I’m glad that there are people like you are standing up to his regime. Thanks for such a splendid article Riaz, I wished I have come across your article before joining and wasting all my time and money on this motherfucking scam.
Hello Vince, I’m sorry to hear that. I too was tricked into joining as they video sounds so amazing and George looks so honest. I hope that one day he will go to jail and receive justice
14 out of 100 is too kind Riaz, George should get 0!!! I really hate these inconsiderate people who make a living out of other people’s misery, he should go to jail.
I agree with you the rating and the scam guru sentences Yilaine, but there are other scam products who are worse than Google Sniper 2.0 and for that, they receive lower rating than George’s. Thanks for dropping by!
I’ve always known that George Brown is a huge scam guru and coming across your review further confirms my suspicion. Great work on uncovering yet another scam Riaz! Keep up the good work!
Wonderful to know that you liked my article Hannah. Uncovering scams is one of the features of my blog as I don’t want people to fall into these pitfalls as how I did.I know that after one scam is uncovered, few more will rise to take its place but as long as we persevere, these scammers will be brought to justice.
Such an exciting read as always Riaz! Im not so much of a reader but I like your writing style and how you blend in casual informal writing along with the nice visuals, I find that personal down to earth writing style is often the best, especially for reviews and speaking of which, great job my friend.
Thanks Theordore! Even if I wanted to, I have no training on how to write formal lol. But I like writing casually as it is much easier to express what goes on in my head.
Hey Riaz! Just wanted to let you know that your website looks really awesome on mobile phones, did you do anything to the site or does it adjust automatically? Would be so cool if its automatic
Would you be surprised if I say that it’s automatic? That’s the power of WordPress when it come to making quality websites and to be honest, I didn’t even know it fits on phones 😉
Woah, I never knew Google Sniper is so cheap in terms of quality education! It looks so honest and awesome when it comes to the video though :/ . Great review nonetheless, Riaz!
That seems to be like the best attraction source when it comes to scams Emily. These gurus know that they will never get away once the user is already inside so because of that, they lure you into buying with their videos and hypes, complimented with high costs so they can get as much money as they can from you.
Hey Riaz, nice review on Google Sniper! I’ve been waqnting to write my own review too but I have a question if you don’t mind, are using WordPress for your site platform? I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and create my own. Do you need any html coding knowledge to make your own blog? I’m trying to build a website too but I don’t have any prior knowledge so any help would be greatly appreciated 😀
Hey there Robin, thank you! Actually, you don’t need any prior experience in order to build a website today. You can actually start for free through Wealthy Affiliate and there’s an excellent community there too in case you need any help or advice on going further. Hope you have a great day!
Bonjour Riaz ce site est très complet, je suis très fier de toi!
