I’m with HG and I’m glad to pay the tad bit of extra money to be a platinum member. If I’m using the services and paying for max benefits than I should be listed above previous non-HG users.
All platinum paying members probably feel this way. Why wouldn’t we? We continue to provide more support to HG and in return they continue to try an provide more support to us. I don’t feel it’s fair to be listed on the HG search results next to someone who will never have anything to do with HG again.
HG services are $300/year. That’s ONE inspection to cover all computer orientated services for the whole year. That’s nothing! They have big expenses just like the rest of us.
HG’s website directory doesn’t hold much rank to begin with. It currently does nothing for me but maybe one day that will change.
I can easily see Russell being pulled between paying members and past non-existent users. Now, being completely honest, who would you choose?
You gotta support those who support you. That’s business.
