I have joined the BHW for over 3 years now. so far the money I have sent here is more than the money I have made. (I must apologize that I still have nothing to contribute but my common-sense thoughts.) those epic stories remains a myth to me even though I still want to believe. I have hesitated to spend a lot of money. so I bought here and there, always small packages. they however did add up still. (The site that made me the most? I NEVER did a damn thing on it! too bad that was not a big money niche.) the question here is if those services for sale work? 1, I find it funny - in all those TV infomercials, eBook sales, and the services for sale, they all come with long lines of testimonials. So they just started the services and already have a long line of testimonials? where the fuck did those "customers" come from huh? this is especially funny with those clickbank ebook or software rollouts. it really made me want to curse! 2, on the other hand, when i go through the offers. there are plenty of them charging $200-$500, some even more than 1K. I also see that they got plenty of orders too. so who would spend $500 or $1000 that easily? are they the true testimonials? they are silent, but I suspect many who actually bank are. I bot here and there, but never spent more than $50 in an order. 3, I know according to my experience, some services are quite worthless - you got links that never got indexed, or you got directory submissions that you might never spend the time to check. Others are links that will all disappear in a few days or weeks. Links I bot a year ago probably are 95% gone, including my own AMR labor. I believe some links though did give me some help, though not enough to see cash.. so the question is - should I risk $200 just to see if a service works?
