Webspam Crap Rant

Looking for a personal injury lawyer in Chicago? Google is here to help. Just kidding.

Here’s a Google search engine result page for: “personal injury lawyers chicago”

Google is here to help you get screwed over.

personal injury lawyers chicago   Google Search

Let’s see what we’ve got here. Paid ads. Okay.

First organic result, spam exact domain tied to spam Google+ local page that violates a handful of Illinois legal ethics rules… Cool.

Legal directory, another legal directory…

Ah, first real law firm comes in at 4. Another real law firm at 5.

Thumbtack at 6, a fight for another day.

Another real firm at 7.

Holy YouTube spam at 8…

Click or call one of these unidentified listings? I’d love to know who you got on the other end.

Lucky enough to get an actual lawyer? Who was it? Have they faced discipline? How long have they been practicing?

Hopefully you’re smart enough not to hire your lawyer without doing some due diligence, because Google certainly isn’t helping you out and they continue to make me a liar.
