    I guess I'm feeling a little overwhelmed right now with all the services people are selling on this site.

    I want to boost my website's ranking, and I see no shortage of services and products being offered. Sometimes the offer is easy for me to pass up, as it reads too much like a used car sales pitch; unbelievable promises for a very low price.

    I only have one site I wish to develop SEO for, so I can't afford to get it blacklisted by google. Unfortunately my doubts leave me with doing nothing, which is perhaps the worst choice of all.

    Any suggestions how I can weed through all the services and find one that won't get me blacklisted?

    a few questions for you so we can help you out.

    how old is the domain name.
    Your key term how competitive is it.

    I would start first by making sure your on page seo is set right
    then submit the site to all the search engines
    then social bookmark
    and then press release
    followed up by some articles.

    this should get you going

    How old is your site?

    If you can PM me URL, I'll do a keyword research for you and I'll let you know what term you can easily rank for.

    Once you have done your keyword research, start with a network of web20 blogs and then blast those with whatever tools you can get. (e.g scrapebox, xrummer, amr, bmd)

    Generally speaking like with many things in life, you get what you pay for.

    If the price is too low and the promises are too steep, think twice.

    Take a look at user reviews, use your gut judgement, read the sales thread/service page.

    Take all factors into account. Remember, more links does not mean better rankings. Shoot for quality over quantity.

    Yeah some of the services that are offered just brings the domain blacklisted.
    I guess the saying is true that what you pay is what you get.

    someone correct me if i am wrong. but i believe if you get blacklisted it is most often temporary.

    i had a site that was #2 for a long time that no longer showed up on searches for about 2 weeks then showed back up on the first page. during those 2 weeks i just linked it to some legit high pr sites and i was back in business

    If you have one site, remember to take it slow and drip-feed it. Don't go with offers that promise hundreds of thousands of backlinks.

    I recommend starting off w/ linkpushing. Each linkpush builds a very diversified and multi-tiered structure of backlinks/web properties... and drips it out. It also takes care of stuff like scraping and spinning, which isn't beginner friendly.

    One problem is the site is now about 6 months old. I had an extended development period, so actual content is only about 2 months. I copy / pasted some content from a competing website (changed some text).

    Oh, I should add that I started a company is a competitive field. The services involve each customer spending at least $500, so there's lots of competition. So given this is the business I want to be in, I don't have a choice but to compete in a highly competitive keyword marketplace.
