SEO Producing Non-Qualified Traffic

1) Why does a Texas insurance agent that is only licensed in Texas getting so many visitors from California?

2) How does paying thousands of dollars to an SEO company that produces only 9 real, potential visitors on a monthly basis help this agency?

1) This next report shows 99 visits with an average time of 27:03 minutes on the site.  This is the work of the SEO company and not real traffic.  It was easy to identify by tracking the IP address. Same 2 IP address for all 99 visits
