    (First of all, please excuse my english, it isn't my first language, but I am trying my best, thank you.)

    Hello everyone, this is my first thread, but I have been doing blackhat niches for 6 months.
    All the big earners seem to focus on SEO only, so I thought there is always plenty of room for everyone.
    From doing this other Youtube niche stuff, I have gathered myself a good budget, but I won't spend it at once.

    I have spent about ~3 hours reading through the SEO - Link Building and SEO - Packages section, they don't seem to have a difference at all, but all of them seem to have sales 24/7, which isn't anything new anymore, it is the standard price.

    Okay, so, if you own a thread there, please don't come here advertising it, I want your *UNBIASED* opinions on the SEO sellers.

    Are the popular ones with around ~4k - 6k replies are worth the price? Or are they overpriced?

    I have been comparing them, and they don't seem to have that much of a difference, I am quite stuck, I wan't to try something on the site to see what the impact is with 50$ - 80$ and then move on to 200$ or whatever.

    If any of you guys could please tell your honest opinion on any of the sellers, it would really mean a lot and help other newbies aswell, thank you for reading this.

    TL;DR: Your opinion on "What is the best SEO provider in the marketplace?"

    Read the latest reviews, talk to the seller and try. Remember you get what you pay for.

    What works for some may not work for you.
    Every site is different, some sellers just use the same links for every site, some sellers will do a site audit and make recommendations.
    As @davids355 suggested, talk to the sellers and see which ones you will be comfortable working with. Those that make promises without seeing your site or knowing your KWs are probably best avoided.
    People create threads like this every week but without knowing your site and requirements it is difficult to make recommendations (I don't suggest sharing your details with anyone except those that you work with).
    Also I doubt anybody has bought every single service so you won't be getting the full picture.

    My immediate reaction to all these threads are 2 questions:

    1) Does OP know SEO?
    2) Does OP know SEO well enough to rank keywords long term?

    There's no way to extrapolate an answer from what you asked since most the people who make these threads...

    1) Don't know SEO.
    2) Have never ranked keywords long term / consistently for shit.

    It's a huge a conundrum and great reason for people who know SEO to hate these threads.
    Because...

    1) If you knew SEO you wouldn't need to ask anything (seriously).
    2) You could filter out most sales pages really just based on how a seller positions himself.
    3) If the copy is positioned to target noobs... don't even read the reviews. Noobs are idiots. They'll leave you a nice review for ripping them off (literally, all the time).
    4) If you've done SEO enough to learn it, you wouldn't be looking for middlemen or resellers you'd be looking for cheap labor to train.

    Afterall, that's what most sellers do already... don't they?

    The smartest sellers rarely do work on their own, aside from acting as front men. They just find some cheap labor. Then some cheap services (or compilation of cheap services). Or sometimes invent their own stupid little methods. Then go find someone to outsource that shit method.

    So when you're buying from a system that's mostly designed to attract idiots, your dollars funneling through BHW to 3rd world countries round n round the world your money goes, where it stops noone knows... then comes back to you in the form of a pile a shit wrapped neatly in excel with fancy bold headers to make you feel good... with a line like " BONUS: Myshittylinks.com appreciates honest feedback. So leave me a great review right fucking now and I'll give you 5 BONUS PR 10, TF 500 EXCLUSIVE LINKS!"

    Then you do it. Then the seller has all the plausible deniability they need. And you realize a month later TF doesn't go up to 500, you cry, come leave a bad review and nobody GAF cause you refused to learn SEO.

    However, that's the 1 thing you SHOULD learn from this. The BEST reason to buy a service whether you realize it or not.... is to find smart fucking people who clearly know their shit (based on advice they post on the forum)... really go through their posts and if they clearly, undeniably know what they're talking about I'd order their services just to see how they do their own SEO.

    Like hardcorebiker. His service was just 1 service that taught me how to REALLY analyze domains. I was so hung up on metrics back then and he delivered me a bunch of domains with no so good metrics... but the domains were powerful as fuck. So after that I changed the way I analyze domains. And ever since then haven't really needed to order any more services.

    Well, he said - click bait!

    To OP - the best way to choose a service is a: amount of reviews, type of reviews, screenshots from those who received services and how old is the thread. It's very important to read and understand the service you about to get.

    If it's branded with something stupid, stay away.
    Sherlock Holmes, Lady Gaga, Armani, I think I saw something about Jack Sparrow fucking House MD, etc etc.

    If they've never done shit on BHW outside the Marketplace, stay away.

    If over half of their replies are them bumping their own shit, stay away.

    If there are misspellings in a content sales page, stay away.

    If the mods haven't re-reviewed them in a year, stay away.

    If they continually request Skype conversations, stay away.

    There are some good services, some average, some shoddy and a few rare very good ones.

    You can either close your eyes and touch your screen to choose a service, or as mentioned above read the reviews that buyers are leaving.
