few points to be noted before u pay anyone for seo service ===================================== 1. they just want your money, coz they're doing business 2. they can be an angel or an asshole, take fake review for example, do u think those ranking screenshot are all real? haha. 3. don't everget influence by the number of stars below the username. my algorithm to verify genuine provider ========================== 1. inspect their profile, they must be a consistent service creator or provider 2. look into their sales thread review, I pick review by reputable member only 3. look at their started thread, spot if something fishing there. (once I saw a thread started by a provider asking how to get traffic for his new website, lol) few best practices that I do =================== 1. always ask question before place an order (ask for sample etc) 2. add them on skype to get even better discount (this is to build long term relationship if he's good) 3. never buy from those who failed to delivery on time, coz they might not be the genuine provider, they come b working from mcd and outsource your work to freelancer/fiverr and deliver it here. What am I missing here?
