    Sales Thread: PageRank Burst

    Problem: I needed urgently some links coming from .de domainsThe BST was finished but as someone recommended me Darkface in the chatbox of Schwagoos Blog Network I thought I write him. I asked him if his German Network is still intact and indexed. He told me that he has officially closed the sales due to some personal reasons, but would squeeze in my order. So I ordered 5 x 25 German blogposts for $160. I told him to blast the posts for some URLs right away and to drip for some other URLs. He told me that everything would be finished at 18th of April.

    After that I asked 2x times for a report he wanted to provide. From that point no more communication. I mean I really am not the person that need a report for everything, but as I didn't see any SERP improvements on all 5 sites I gave him, didn't see one single backlinks from a German blog on .de Domain on majestic, ahrefs and GWT I really doubt a single post has been made. And if they have been made I doubt the network is still indexed as at least one backlink would have appeared.

    As I am really to sick to hunt for the work of services I payed for I told him to provide to promised report on 27th of April, and gave him a few days.

    It is not about the money, but I am not the charity man here that makes presents just for the offer of wanted things. It is just $160 but I am not willing to pay that for something I never got. Heck I could have bought a new LEGO Star Wars ship for my son from the money or give it some starving africans or could have a nice evening.

    Proof can be found by mods in our PM conversions.

    Last time he logged in was April 15 and I don't think he will leave bhw for $160 so something bad might have happened to him that prevented him from doing the job and also coming here or responding to you. I hope he shows up soon and you guys settle this.

    Darkface has been out due to his family problems and the thread has been closed since long Past with moderator notification.As much me and Soul know he haven't taken any new orders since then but as you say that You guys did business and he isn't communicating with you then me and internalosul will surely try contacting with him personally and will request him to get back to you ASAP..

    yes, he squeezed the order in. Mods, as these are clearly problems due to private problems of darkface, could you take the word 'scam' out of the title? would be nice, as I dont wanted to call that he is a scammer if personal trouble is the reason in which everyone of us can run...

    I have done business with Darkface. We talked for about an hour over Skype Voice one night about all things SEO. This was months ago.

    From this conversation and others, I know him to be an honest, serious, successful businessman. Yes I could be wrong, but I don't think so.
    Sounds like he has some personal issues going on (which he told you before you placed the order).

    If the money has you in a bind, I will cover for him and have him reimburse me when he pops back on the grid.

    Thanks schwagoo, thats nice but I prefer to clear this with himself. As i said it is not an actual money issue, it was more important to me to get this work done in the specified time frame, as from my theory a penalized site of a client needs .de links forn a natural baclink profile to get out of the penalty. it was part of a whole recovery concept. This and the feeling that work I payed for has not been done made me angry. not knowing bout his difficultes made me think that I go scammed. however, it is like it is and if he has got some serious trouble I know I personally have to wait in the line. some troubles are more important then any internet bucks and search engine results. And if it is the case so i really feel ashamed for calling out darkface a scammer.

    edit: You mentioned I did know about his issued before. That is not a fact. I did knew that he has shutdown his BST due some personal reasons, but I tell a client I can squeeze an order in, it is a thing of self-assesment to deliver the promised things.

    He is a great and honest guy, i have talked with him many times. He is the guy who paid JrVip subscription for me. So i think he has serious problems right now and will get back to you ASAP.

    i agree darkface is truly a standup guy he hasn't even log skype for me in a long long long time also. Which is strange because we talk all the time. So i am postitive whatever the issue' is when he comes back he will swiftly address it and get you squared away. I am sorry subster that you are place in a awkward situation

    Hello all... I am John and it is a pleasure to meet all of you. Even though I am quite new to BHW, I want you to know that Darkface and I work together. In fact, I am his writer. What balsagoth and schwagoo is saying is the truth. He is a very honest person and he is having some issues. In fact, I haven't heard from him myself in a while and I haven't gotten paid either. Even though I do need the money badly, I want you all to know that he is a stand-up guy and everything will be straightened out eventually. If I knew how to do it myself, trust me... I would do it but I do not. I have my own writing business that I just started and I am picking up clients where I can and I am looking for other writers like myself who are looking to make a career out of it and I wish that I could find some that are dedicated like darkface. I will try to answer any questions I can about the issues but I don't think I will be much help.
