Right guys, here is my problem. I've been fucked over by one of my clients. Cutting a long story short. I had a verbal agreement, with my client that once we got him to Page 1, that he would have to pay me a retainer fee. The client had no problems with this, he seemed a genuine guy, and said no problem at all! Well I eventually spent HOURS on his site, and eventually ranked him on Page 1. He was really happy, I was happy that it was finally there... then I get an email off him, saying thank you for getting him to page 1 and it has been really good working with you. It came across, as he got page 1.. and in a polite way, was telling me, I am no longer needed. So I decided to clarify this point, and he basically told me, he did not see any value in keep paying me, as he was page 1 now. At first, I was sooo pissed!! I wanted to pull out the big guns and destroy this fuckers website. But after thinking about it, it still will not get me my money. So I have decided to let him keep his rankings, and I am now going to contact his competitors, and use this site as an example, I can rank in this niche. I wanted to ask some of you more experienced guys, what is the best way to go about contacting his competitors? Email, phone, mail ? Also, can this client sue me, if I did decide to contact his competitors ? There was no contracts between us, it was a verbal agreement between us, done on a hand shake. What do you guys make of the situation ?
