So what exactly is a “Google-partner SEO agency” and how does the partnership work? Well, apparently this claim is a bunch of bullshit. There is no such thing as a “Google-partner SEO agency” and the all-knowing Webmaster Trends Analyst at Google, Mr. John Mueller, has the balls to call out the fraudulent claims.
This fun little exchange happed on Twitter the other day and shows how Mueller pulls the rug out from under all of the agencies claiming to be SEO partners with the global search engine.
There is no such thing as an SEO partner program from Google. They have Google Analytics, Google Ads, Google Apps, etc but not for SEO.
