    I thought with the esteemed recommendations on fiverr that these guys could handle the workload, however, I have been seeing a really shaky service at best.

    I purchased multiple of the premium packages on his website.

    I'm thinking of looking for an alternative for something more long-term, any ideas, or comments?

    I remember using his social backlinks on my niche site, it got my site penalized, i asked him to undo the damage he caused, he just sent more spammy links which made my site completly disappear.

    Yeah, most of the links are pretty spammy.

    The seller couldn't communicate english really well and sent most of my links to a competitor's site lol.

    u know he is a member here.. Also I do believe he may have some BSTs going idk.
    Either way truth is u shouldnt call someone out on "ruining" your site. If could have been a number of things. Not saying your wrong here either. He may have idk.
    Dont trash him on a open forum just to "ask" where can I get good seo.
    Also asking publicly where can I get good seo help is just begging to get screwed more. It screams Ima fish let me give you my money.

    ftr I have never in my life used his service or even talk to him i do believe.

    you seem to confuse the notion of SEO with the notion of IM

    SEO = optimizing your site = good content, nice URL's, nice designs, good code
    IM = advertisement = backlinks, SMM, SEM, media buys, etc

    each advertisement campaign comes with the risk of loosing something: your investment, the targets trust and in some cases even your permission to activate in that field of business...

    crorkservice is an advertisement group and not a SEO one. Now I know everyone is hoping to invest 5$ or 50$ and have a 1000% ROI and that is possible but you can't just throw lines in a fishless pond and hope to catch a sturgeon... you have to do your research and decide if your campaign is worth the investment... and yeah... a 5$ gig won't rank you for "MMO" keywords so don't bother

    If you are buying links direct to your site off fiverr then you are waiting for a slap. Fiverr stuff is really only for tiered properties.

    I'm not talking about the $5 gig, and I doubt other members are.

    I'm referring to his premium SEO services, which I purchased multiple of the most expensive package.

    I made this thread to see if my consensus was correct, or if there was a reason to continue to stay with the service. I'm not an SEO expert, so I figure other member's opinion's are more valuable.

    It's nothing wrong with the seller. If you want cheap services use them wisely. Don't just use it for your moneysite, use the service to point it to your 1st, 2nd, or 3rd tiers. I have used him before, it didn't cause any damage. You just have to know how to diversify your links.

    as I said buying links isn't SEO :) it's advertisement and in many cases it's done poorly ... you're paying for an ad space that doesn't belong to the guy who's selling it to you and so he has no control over it

    if you're trying to rank your website i suggest doing SEO on your own or if you want to take a marketing approach at least pay for something the payee owns if not something that you will end up owning

    example: there are services here that create web 2.0's and give you the login info to them so you have complete control over your links

    Ah I see, so most of the services here don't actually rank?

    Apparently their testimonial says otherwise.

    I mean, I'm willing to pay more, I just want something that works :/

    Its not the backlinks, its the way you are using backlinks to your website, he is just like other backlinks sellers around the internet.

    I have had good experience with blog post links, buy around 100+ and you see your website ranking page1-3.

    I haven't used most of the services here so I can't tell you if they rank or not and that depends on oh so many factors... as I said, you can't catch fish in your bath tub... it's all about the research you do

    that screen shot shows that people bought some service from them and those people where satisfied... who's to say they were targeting 50k EMS keywords and not 100 EMS keywords ? What was the competition in the niches targeted by those people ? What was their 'conversion' point ? Were the satisfaction measurements of the customer based purely on the 'on time delivery' or were they based on the quality of the work done ?

    All in all if crorkservice didn't work for one of your websites it doesn't mean it won't work for your other websites or other people's websites :)

    I am not saying I agree with their services but the one I used (50k comments on some YT videos) helped me and I was satisfied with the work they did.

    Keep in mind that you have to take everything you read on the interwebs with a pinch of salt...

    Thank you for this useful post.

    I'm just surprised in general since all of the KW's are pretty low competition, it sounded like something that could have been accomplished fairly easily.

    But you're right. I will do more research with my new suppliers. After all... time wasted is way more valuable then any amount of money

    He's talking about crork's BST thread. It's seo services. On another note, I have never had a problem with him or his services.

    he offers great services. Social bookmarks being my favorite. As of late though, he's been lagging it with the orders.
