    There is a section in GAF where you can outsource link building. Has any body used this before and what are your thoughts?

    I am curious, do you have to give the sites you want links built on to the freelancer and how do you prove they get registered?

    I am guessing they would do whatever you tell them to.

    I was thinking of outsourcing some dudes to build me backlinks in forums...

    Essentially have my links in their sigs and just make relevant post in
    high traffic sections of the forms.

    Dont know what to pay though...

    I've used the service. It was extremely poor and I ended up not having to pay for it.

    Funnily enough, I've got a request out now at ODesk and I've had 31 replies in less than 8 hours. Everyone of them tells me that they are great and most are charging just $2-5 an hour so I guess you get what you pay for.

    I'm giving it another go because for data entry last time, I wanted 700 email addresses copied from my emails onto a spreadsheet. 1 week later and 225 names later I decided I had had enough...

    I'm quickly coming to the consclusion to get a good linkbuilding service done on an ongoing basis I will have to pay a decent rate but if it is a good job I don't mind at all.

    Just used gaf for the first time a few weeks back and got ripped off. Struck a deal for some forum posting and the guy somehow convinced me to give him a little up front. Gave him $20 as a good will gesture and after a week never heard from him again. It's really sad how desperate people are for money. The guy was from the Uk as well so that's like 15 quid or something - enough to buy a DVD or something. I could understand it if he was from a poor country and it was aot of money to him.
    I really don't learn! My whole Internet career has been plagued by a slow drip drip of wasted purchases and rip-offs probably totalling a few hundred by now. I just put it down as "start up costs" :((
    so lesson learnt - stick to the gaff rules and don't pay till you get the goods. I just get the feeling Most are out to rip u off on there.

    I made some good experiences.

    But I just bought a bunch of quality links (like 10, or 20 PR3-PR5 links).

    I also required a list of all link sites beforehand.

    You will get sucked in GaF when you let yourself lose! Its a tough world and you should know it, I have never been ripped in GAF and its been great, be strict with your worker, give specific details and all will be good.

    For example I ordered Blog commenting and got a really good job with a good price, but I also made a clear description what i wanted.

    Example for forum posting:

    U will get robbed when you write...
    Better Try -

    Just consult with those guys ask their previous jobs etc and you will then find the best for you.

    Also pay through GAF milestone payment system, if you stick with the system you get your money back. Once when I started using GAF i thought ooh im gonna order some cheap content, but the guy was so slow so I reported this and got my money back...

    Keep your eyes open and dont be such losers there...
