Amazing SEO Service But No Backlinks Showing??

    Hi,

    I am using a guy for my SEO and really his results are by far the best i have seen.

    Within weeks he has got my new sites to number 1 in Google and some are still there (for over 6 months through updates etc.).

    When I check for backlinks NONE show up for my site at all...and also no 301s or anything either.

    How is he doing it without any backlinks showing up..at first you would think it is blackhat but once they get to number 1 they haven't moved at all...over months and in really competitive niches.

    Also, he has no access to my site I just give him the URL.

    Any ideas?

    How are you checking backlinks? Have you tried ahrefs?

    I think that it is impossible do it without backlinks, maybe some FB shares/like but it can not be enough

    No it's not me...I don't provide SEO services so this is not a promo or anything!

    The first thing I thought was 301 redirects but now I think it is definitely not.

    Can he block the ahrefs crawlers without having access to the site?

    Backlinks >> Control Site (blocking backlink checker sites through robots.txt and .htaccess) >>301 to your site.

    he cannot block them if he doesn't have access to server

    So he is blocking the backlink crawlers on the site that he is 301ing to my websites?

    I thought you could only do that on the money site itself but if you say you can do this then that's probably what it is.

    Is there any way to confirm or check this?

    There are a couple of ways to do it without links, but the most likely is that he's using 301's and just blocking robots from crawling the domain that is 301'ed.

    This was my thinking. But if the guys above are saying he is blocking his own domain that he is 301ing then that is possible yes?

    That means every SEO client he takes on board he needs a new domain to 301 links through though yeah? That is a lot of domains as he has a lot of clients from what I can see.

    And if this happens to be a monthly seo subscription.. be prepared to lose ranking once you stop your subscription.

    You block the crawlers from the one you getting the backlinks not to your target/money site. blocking backlink checkers from your money site is useless and will still show backlinks if you check your money site.

    Really competitive niche + no links = impossible. It's some gimmick, relaying the link through a third site, etc...

    Thanks all. Interesting...obviously a good technique but he must be putting some really high PR links through them to give such a boost. Worth looking at more closely.

    pm me I would like referral if you dont mind. 301 is good but eventually may get hit by google algo update. I HOPE what he is doing is just blocking the crawlers. Also if the links are new they dont all show up, check your webmaster tools for new links if there are any click thrus.

    And yeah if it is monthly you lose links once you stop subcribe. been there before. Best to do it on something not so critical to you.
