    Most people are sure that $200 per month is not enough for a decent link building campaign. But what if $200 per month is the maximum that you can squeeze from your tight budget on SEO? Don?t you really have any chances to bring your website on the first page of Google?

    There are. I suggest you take the 1st tier work and out source the 2nd and 3rd tire work on fiverr or somewhere. You will see good results.

    Ofcourse 200 is more than enough. Just buy Tier 1 service from someone from BHW and for Tier 2 onwards you can use Fiverr to strengthen the Tier 1. Don't go for all in one SEO service as they might cost a lot. Just make your own link building strategy and test them out..

    There's too many factors to conclude whether or not $200/month is suffice for SEO. If your target keyword is 'purple midget hamsters for sale in Vietnam', then I'm pretty confident $200 would get you on the first page.

    What's your niche?

    From what my friends say you need $400 a month to rank medium competition niches.
    I am thinking $200 a month is fine for low competition.

    Well

    5 Articles = 500 * $6 = $30
    1 Press Release = $20

    PR Submission = $30

    PDF Creation/Submission = $30

    Few Blog Comments .edu etc / Social Bookmarks = $40

    Web 2.0 Creation - Article Spinning - Posting = $50 maybe more

    That's $200 with you doing some of the work .. and that's without any Social Network Stuff/Sharing or
    scanning around and getting some content on some High PR Sites.

    You can rank local/low comp keywords pretty easy with $100 per month. For $200 medium is within reach and for high comp you will proba need a bit more. Of course you already need resources in place such as software and tools. To maximise what you get for the money you need to be doing the work your self and spend this money on, captchas, articles, proxies etc. obviously service providers are doing this and then adding their profit on top. So all in all it's suffice if your doing the work yourself.

    But will it bring my website on the first page of Google if my niche is highly competitive?

    Outsource it to fiverr and you can get many kind of backlinks with $200. Just make sure not to build mass low quality backlinks directly to your main site, it can harm your site rank

    It's possible but will take a long time to rank for link-building related keywords for $200. I wouldn't expect to see a ROI for at least a year, presuming you're relying on SEO for your business, which means you'd be investing over $2400.

    If I were you, I'd spend that $200 on getting a decent sales thread going here or maybe renting some banner spaces on SEO forums. You'll see a much faster ROI and, if you do a good job, you'll get repeat business and more profit to eventually invest in SEO.

    I have seen people offering guaranteed results at $200, but frankly speaking I believe that it's waste of money because you'll have to wait hell lot of time before you can actually see some growth in your site rankings. IF you can patiently wait for 6 months in order to see the initial results, then go for it, else look for a better plan. As Abstroose said, you can also consider starting a sales thread over here, as it can get you a far better ROI. After all, it's ROI that matters at the end of day.

    Cheers :)

    I'm going to do this but at first I need to work for my reputation here. I know that seasoned forum members don't trust newbies :)

    I don't get it. Your name is LinkBuilding Services and your asking if 200$ is enough. Shouldn't you know already more than the rest of us if you provide link building services.. Just asking

    What they are saying is right. There are many quality service offered at the BST section. Choose what do you think is good and choose what fits your budget. Aside from that, you can also segment and calculate different kind of one kind of submission you prefer combine with fiverr and what not. You can also do it all or half (Its up to you) manually, in that way you can save so much but be ready for the big effort.

    There are many, many options, you gotta think first before you act!

    That's not entirely true, but I'm sure it would definitely post if you became more active, upgraded to Jr VIP and then was generous enough to offer 5+ free reviews for your service. If you're giving free reviews and offering a decent service then your reputation shouldn't be an issue.

    The question is not answerable with the provided information. You may be trying to rank for "food" for all we know. Please try again.

    High PR quality backlinks is the key. You can get more than enough for $200 a month.

    Thanks for your advise! But I have 1 big question. For example, I don't sell hundreds of links (as we used to see different offers like 100 links just for $19), but I offer relevant links which you can select by yourself and you even will be able to see the pages where you want to buy links. Also you will see the page PR, number of outbound links and passed PR weight. What can I offer for free reviews if the link quality you can see even if you don't buy anything? Our links are payed on a monthly basis and for example if I offer 1 month free period, this links will be removed after 1 month and people didn't get expected results since as we know we need around 3-6 months to see the ranking improvements. Moreover in this case Google can detect that these links were bought and it can harms your site.
