    I am in the market to pay for a monthly link building program. Finding this service is not difficult. BHW has 2 sub forums specifically on this topic. However, how do I know which one is right for me.

    I look at the person who is offering the service and see how many posts they have made and how many times they have been thanked. I also look at length of time they been a member.

    I see tons of requests for "review copies" but very few actual reviews. Sometime the service provider puts previous reviews into the sales copy but those appear to be coming from other link building packages they have run, not from the service they are offering now. I also try to look at the moderator who reviewed the service, sometimes they give an opinion and I tend to put value on that.

    Anyway,
    How do I evaluate the service providers who are advertising?

    Are there any well known link builders?

    Wonderful sales copy just doesn't get it for me, especially on those services that are giving out review copies but no one is posting the results of those review copies.

    Especially since I have tried services from Warrior Forum and Digital Point with great sales copy and they were dogs.

    Once you see a few that you might be interested in, ask specific questions about your site to the sellers. Listen to those answers, ask more if you think you need to, and evaluate that way.

    The best option is to just talk to the few ones over skype that you think can do your job well.
    Ask them to show you sample work that they've done previously.

    After looking at all of the aspects. It's your decision which one to choose.

    Not sure if I saw what your budget was in your thread, as my little netbook is laggy as hell and have maybe 15 windows open, but i logged in to BHW to specifically write to you and let you know some of my experiences.

    Over the years, I've been buying lots of seo services as my sites usually generate like 20k+ - 50K depending on the keywords. SO I have a large seo budget most of the time. I've tried maybe 20 diff services.

    The ones I found useful were a mixture of white hat and black hat in combination. So my suggestions from experience are these;

    Divergent SEO. (hands down best tier 1 service I've ever come across) - Huge link diversity and this guy is pro, although he is slow as hell sometimes. But more so he was on vacation and it's understandable. He's been really good with his customer service and attentive when I write to him. Ive only purchased a few of his packages, but in the future when Im settled down in my life. I'll be throwing thooousands at this guy.

    I found that "the scorpian king" is a good service to combine with this divergent seo. Pretty legit and adds more diversity.

    I hired a test run of magic beanstalk seo and they fucked up pretty badly to start with my tier 1's, which ended up coming out as straight duplicate content pretty much. (bad spinning) and didn't follow my instructions, but after I spoke to the OP and we talked for a bit, he ended up giving me a lot of really high quality links and services for free to replace the bad services that they skipped out on.
    If he's back on his game and giving high quality as he offered the second time around for me, I would suggest adding this as well, as he proved himself to be competent.

    Then there's things like sape - speedrank. And doge rank which is more so something I would say you should add to a site you don't care about as much in case.

    Found Divergent SEO and it is within the upper limit for my monthly SEO allowance. If the site began to rank that would, of course, result in an increase of my SEO budget.
    I searched several different ways for "the scorpion king" and couldn't locate him on the forum.

    Thanks for all this help, from you and from everyone. I will Skype the people and ask a few questions too. The problem with that is that I don't know much, most people are going to know more than me.

    If I go, and I think I will, with Divergent SEO I will tell him you sent me ( abyssal miss ) and hopefully he will treat you well for giving the referral.
