So I'm in a weird situation. Teamed up with a guy who I thought understood SEO. Deal was I rank for keywords in his niche and we split the profit 50/50. I was doing all the work but I went for it because he was paying me a salary to start with getting it setup. Long term it wasn't a great deal for me but I was working on another project semi related to him so I went for it. Fast forward to today I've been working on the site, the links are good the rankings are improving weekly and I'd consider the site doing pretty well and on track. He starts claiming I said the site would be ranking after two months. A new site in this niche I know I haven't said that. He stops paying invoices and I've now been working unpaid. To date he's paid me for one months work and I've spent a few hundred of his investment on the site itself. But he's fobbed me off instead of paying me and I don't work for free to give someone 50% of my commissions. But despite me asking early on we have no written contract in place. I know. Stupid. Honestly I didn't think I needed it. Again. Stupid. So looking for suggestions on what to do here. I have no intentions of continuing to work on the site and give him 50% for nothing. But the niche is looking promising and it has taken a lot of work so I don't really want to just abandon the project and write off the money if I can avoid it. I'm thinking of changing the logins for everything and paying him back the investment when that site turns a profit. And honestly for wasting my time I think that's pretty generous. But I suspect that route is likely to wind up in civil court. Anyone been in a similar situation? Any suggestions?
