Effective SEO services on BHW these days?
Visit the marketplace see who has the most reviews !
The most effective service is where you
1. identify an SEO need for your project, which you cannot do yourself
2. Finding a BST that offers this service
3. Figuring out if the BST's price justifies the work and if it translates you bringing any improvement to your website (shop around if there is a similar service that is offered for cheaper and comparing features)
4. Asking for a sample from the BST provider to get an idea and asking questions before hand
5. Taking a look at the reviews (and the members who give the reviews)
6. Making the payment and hope for the BST does its job
Why am i wrong? Whoever has the best feedback would be a good choice no?...
Not exacty.. there are a lot of other factors.. check accounts that give reviews to see if they re old enough and with positive stats themselves, check if reviews are new enough, also check the neutral and negative messages for a clearer picture
Most does not equal best. Some of the largest and most replied to threads in the Marketplace are complete garbage and are multiple people selling the exact same shit on different accounts. That and 80% of the replies in those threads are typically either a) someone saying they want samples/review copies or the OP bumping their own thread.
I stay the fuck away from the larger threads. They are complete garbage the majority of the time.
I'd say this is largely true. Although prior to 2013 not so much. Some of the best services I used pre-2013 (here and other forums) were threads that blew up precisely because they were good.
And you still get that today to a small (very small) degree. But SEO has become so personalized these days it's more about:
1) Do I know this mfkr?
2) Is he/she a stand up member on the forum?
3) Do they know their shit?
4) Do their link standards meet mine?
With number 4 having it's own large subset of criteria. And after you screen through a long list of criteria it becomes nearly impossible to find a good service.
Which is why I haven't bought links I think almost 2 yrs now. Much better to just learn SEO, hire a reputable VA, train them to do SEO exactly how you need and that's how I handle most my shit these days.
