    Hi guys I came across this SEO service, it's £25 a month. I know that seems way to cheap for anything decent but i was wondering if anyone had any experience with them?

    Well I can confirm they rank well throughout the UK, for most towns, I had to cover them in my business plan as an indirect competitor.

    But "Pay nothing till you reach the first page, then £25 a month" is one of the most dangerous pricing policies in the world.
    They could sign you up and do NOTHING to your site, then when you reach page 1 for your business name or the longest of long tail keywords you find yourself paying £25 a month forever... Or EVEN WORSE do nothing for x months, then present you with a backdated invoice.

    Also the quality of backlinks they provide are VERY VERY poor, not the worst I've ever seen (The worst was a company which cold called me in my last job who I strung out for an hour whilst checking their backlinks - they were all from unindexed directories!) but still pretty bad.

    I wouldn't use them personally because WHAT can you expect for £25 a month?

    meathead1234, I understand why it might seem like that but really I'm just lazy and wondered if that kind of service was of any use.

    0_inspiration makes a good point regarding the service type and given the recent updates I think i'll stick to something a bit more upmarket.

    Any recommendations?

    If you're looking for something cheap but effective take a look around this forum, plenty of great services here.
    But it really depends what you're trying to rank and why, in some cases you're really better off doing it yourself, I've seen lots of people think they have a great idea - then spend WAY too much money getting 3rd parties to do basic things they could have done themselves. At the end of the day all you end up doing is eliminating any profit you might make down the line.

    @meathead - not sure it is the OP sites, they're quite established in the UK, or rather, they were ranking really well last time I looked lol.
