At the same time he warned of "black sheep" of the SEO industry. According to Kaufmann, there are many self-proclaimed experts who sell bad service to bona fide hoteliers and other clients in the tourism SEO.

Kaufmann also explained how these scammers generally operate. Cold calling with slogans such as "we guarantee to bring your hotel on search rank 1" or "You get guaranteed 10,000 visitors per month" or "Manual entry to 200 search engines" is typical.
