    I have now had disagreements with 3 people selling high pr backlinks and Blog Posts as i believe they are fake. I did get refunds every time but it seemed to me that the sellers genuinely thought their page rank was valid. I've now started to doubt myself as these guys get so much business and they websites are full of paid links.

    My method is to check is pagerank is - Majesticseo (fresh/historic), opensiteexploere, seo spyglass, blekko. If i am buying a pr5 link i expect links to the site my url is placed on to have lots of pr 3's, 4's or a few pr5's or couple of 6's or along those lines.

    I check waybackmachine and google cache to looking for age or clones of sites. I also check the domain name in different tld's (.org, .net etc)

    Some of the excuses i heard from sellers were "this domains dont have authority ....but high PR". Am i missing something here as the all spoke this way?

    Some guy tried to tell me his 5 absolute shit pr0 scrapebox spammed links pointing at his site was why is was a Pr6?

    One dude reckons if he puts his url into one of the crap online pr checkers and it says good then its good. This guy had a network of over 200 domains.

    And whats worst of all is one of them is a reputable BHW seller. He tried to sell me a .org clone of a .com pr6.

    WTF.

    Here is what you need to do...
    Stop buying that crap... Googs is actually working on trying to disolve acknowlegment of those type of links. its a waist of money.
    Think social, local, mobile and you get a better deal.
    & be carefull.

    If your running a new site or just setting it up
    Get quality content, original dont be lazy,
    If the company has reviews and testomonials get those from them youll need them later.
    Seo the site but dont over do it adding every city in that state.
    make sure name address and phone are easy to see
    get a g places account and get that setup and post card sent to you
    get registered & add offers on 3rd party website, merchant circle, yelp, insider, etc. type of sites.
    If you want to get indexed in less than a day post a add on criagslist for the service and make sure you enter in your service to the town,city you want to get searched in, Google still spiders cl everyday. so you get spidered right along with it.

    well thats enough help for now,lol.. but those are some angels that i use to help get my sites noticed asap and so i can start generating some cashola asap.

    ttyl
    I still use the cheap ubl services as it work to establish a good base to grow on.

    Not surprised. Some time back I bought several blog posting services on a few different forums. The links were low quality, and one even managed to post my link next to a porn links. Nice.

    You have to be aware (if you don't know already) that many of the sellers are in fact re-sellers; so in fact, they're using cheap hired labor to do yours' and others work.

    Also, I think that "reputation" means very little online, especially if you don't know the seller. The guy who did the porn link was a supposedly "reputable" seller on several IM forums. Of course, he got round the issue by passing the buck and saying it was the "workers" fault; but he still could n't remove the links.

    One option is to cut out middle man (the seller) and hire people directly at places like odesk, where you can check out the rep of the workers.

    I bought some 'blog posts' a few weeks ago for a forum I started. Luckily, the perpetrators had the decency to tell me the moment when the posting went live. It was of such diabolical quality; one-liners, trite and irrelevant waffle and in pisspoor English etc., but at least I was able to tell them to quit immediately and keep the payment. That exercise would have done me a lot more harm than good.

    Thanks for the input but i know the seo world is changing. Honest truth is if you want to rank for some ultra hard keyword you need high pr backlinks.
